Store Reps = worthless
"Can you give me information on the Samsung n330?"
Store 1- We dont know anything about that phone until it comes out.
Me- So you are telling me you know nothing about a phone that is supposed to come out in 3 days?
Store 1- No sir.
Store 2- We dont carry that phone.
Me- I know it is supposed to come out in 3 days.
Store 2- I just asked the other people and they've never heard of it.
So are the reps at the store just full of $hit and not allowed to say? I hope they really arent that dumb and know nothing about this phone.
I hate the corporate stores.
Looks Like Samsung Is Finally Learning
Dear god... has Samsung actually been listening to its customers? This one seems to get nearly everything right. Only minor quibbles left is lack of trimode, and the fact that I wished it were a flip. Still... WAY better than the 650.
No analog mode for N330?
Don't expect it out anytime soon...

Ok - we have a price!
Finally the long awaited release looks to be soon. I will admit, I called VZW out of curiosity, (based on previous threads) and I was told that the "possible" release date may be April 21, 2005. I replied, "if it is possible, what would the possible price be?" I was told "149.99 - 1 year contract, and 89.99 - 2 year contract." I believe there is a 50.00 rebate as well. Obviously, they can only speculate and the CS rep gave me all kinds of disclaimers.
To me, this means the release will be sometime next week, or early May. They have a price on this phone, which means that is has been approved and it just needs to be marketed and shipped to VZW stores.
Get on the bandwagon kids - it is here!
April 21 release date
Release Date - Updated
I'm not sure what this means, but take it as you will. I called VZW tonight, and asked what new phones were coming out this week. (I was told that CS Reps are aware of new products 4 days in advance)Tonight, I was told that their price lists are good through May 8, 2005. I dont know if that means, no new products until May 8, or that they may introduce new products and update their price lists as needed.
I guess I am just giving information from one frustrated VZW client to another. Good luck.
Possible Release Date?
This phone is pretty cool!
The phone is not too small, yet not big either. Keypad layout is the standard for all most of the Samsungs. In order to open it, you have to press both the side buttons (top gray one on the picture, on both sides); so far I don't see a situation where this phone can open in your pocket or purse.
This is a perfect phone for a teen that wants a COOL phone. NICE speakerphone is a pretty good addition to the list of feats.
Looks Like Verizon

Anyone think this is a horrible design?
This looks like the slider dipped in white chocolate, with a boxy look. Im sorry but I think this is a step backward. WTF?
I was starting to get impressed with our new handset offerings, but this is just bad news.
Now if they were to offer a black version like their matrix phone, it might look halfway decent. But white, uugh
