Why do you think the phone is a piece of junk?

The build quality on this phone is horrible. Yes it light, but thats because you can squeeze it and crush it. I dont know what cheap plastic they used but its terrible. Yes it looks cool being all black and the sreen is nice but so what, it has the worst RECEPTION I ever seen on a cingular phone. Cant get a signal where I could with my Nokia6620.

Buyer Beware!! I would not buy this phone.

My phone actually gets really good reception. I get full signal in most places. The phone is light but I don't think it feels cheap... My audiovox 8920... NOW THAT FELT CHEAP!!!

The phone has froze on me a couple of times under heavy use if it continues to happen I'll be calling cingular and getting a new one. The freezing isn't a big issue because I don't have to pull the battery out to get the phone to reset the screen just says "one moment please" and then everything is back to normal... If anyone else is having that problem let me know...

I too have had it freeze up on me but i just give it a second, open and close it w few times and push buttons and it will unfreeze. And this phone is far from cheap i dont know any difference from any other phone, its really shiny too, looks really good!

this phone SUCKS! i got rid of my vx6100 becouse it froze all the time and this one freezes to and i thought the build quality was bad on the vx6100 this thing is so cheap, i wanted to trade it in for the c2000 from lg but that phone seems kinda cheap to so im trying the moto v551 which has a great camara but shaky reviews but the p207 did have GREAT reception.
hope this helps

You can't beat the signal.. i work for cingular and we always compare the phones for the customers, this one usually always wins. Nokia usually has great reception on all their phones, but this phone give them a run for the money.

to answer the freezing question, i haven't personally had this problem, but i've heard some other's have... try to exchange it through the warranty program, that should help. I haven't heard anything official though....

I have the samsung e317 and the sound quality sucks. I can never hear the people, is it good on the P207?

Thanks for the great insight! Your post "don't buy it" was very helpful.

Despite Rambo's brief review, I'd have to agree. As they say, style doesn't make up for lack of substance. Rolling Eyes

I just wrote a pretty detailed review of why I don't like the phone...check that out. It's mostly the call quality. It sounds like a bad MP3 played inside a tin can. That's the best way I can describe it. Between that and the hissing it makes, I'm very disappointed in Samsung. This is the first and last of their phones that I'll be buying. I've already ordered a v551 to replace it.

Just think about this...why is a phone with this many features only $80? You get what you pay for.

lol your comparing a v551 to a p207? ok lets compare.
first off, the phone is 80 with a contract. the 551 is 100...

I currently use both phones, one personal, one business (i work for cing)

i use the 207 for personal.
-best signal quality in our store(we compare quite frequently, usually beats the 551)
-voice dialing and texting
-camera beats the 551 in sharpness
-lightweight
-you can actually see the screen outside in daylight
-call quality is extremely good

551 is for business
-bluetooth
-speakerphone
-tough(takes alot of abuse)
-familiar with menu layout(moto is cing's brand of choice for employee lines)

now, i'm sure no one made u buy this phone, and i'm happy to see you've found one that you like as all phone...

i would have to say that the phone is doing me good so far the outside screen works when phone is closed to check time... small compact lightweight camera is better then the razr screen is better in my opinion also better reception here in wis.
bluetooth is no biggie to me along with speaker phone.. my biggest problem i seen with it is the headset jack is not not not normal the ticked me off
that and the preloaded ringers are cheesy other than that that the only things i have messed with..
and yes i did return my razr

Sad hey since u work for cing.. maybe u can help resolve my p207 issue..i got the phone about two weeks only and now the phone wont charge..im thinking its the batt..and how come its keeps on shutting the phone off bye itself.. even when i just turn the phone one..knowing how the charging battery appears when the phone is on charge in off mode. mine dosnt show that but a dim light like it wont charge and i cant go no where with it becuse it keeps on shutting off and sometimes it wont even come back on..i dont know if anyone is having this prob. its starting to be really bad! Evil or Very Mad
