Samsung MyShot R430
Most durable phone I've ever owned
I had this phone for 2.5 years, it still worked after I dropped it down the stairs, after I dropped it in a foot of snow, ran over it with a golf cart. It survived two thunderstorms, one of which featured 60 mph sideways wind, the phone was in my pocket, but i got drenched in 10 seconds, I pulled it out of my pocket and while it was wet, it still did everything it was supposed to, although the only pictures I could take were green. I lost the battery cover, so I held in the battery with a rubber band. I threw it across parking lots. I threw it at brick and cement walls, I think I even dropped it down the stairs, but besides being banged up, it still worked. Here's a link to a picture of my phone the day before it died: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2338117105522&set=a.2338117065521.120732.1627719339&type=1&theater At the time this picture was taken, the only thing that wouldn't work was the camera. I promise that this is me with my phone. And, if you can still buy this phone, you won't regret it.
pretty decent phone
i upgraded on this phone with my Alltel account and got this phone for like $10 here.
The phone is really nice, sleek, handy, and cute. I did have an LG43270 phone, and I just wanted to upgrade to a bluetooth phone since I do a lot of driving for work. This phone, I got the headset for it, and it works like a charm with it. I absolutely love the voicesignal on it. you can set the phone whenever you open the flip to hear the automated say "Say a Command", and than you can say what you want to do. The only down-fall on this phone that I have is the battery life. It is 3Hrs. of talk-time, and I've seen some that were 4 and 5. the speakerphone is o.k., but, now since I've got a headset I hardly use it. The ringtones are awful,so I set my ringtone to name repeat whenever someone calls me. I love that feature.
Other than those down-falls, I really like the phone. I would suggest it to whomever is wanting to either buy them this pphone, or upgrade. It is worth the money.

This phone is great! Good sound, very light and cute. Ringtones are dumb but other than that I love it. It is def affordable and very cute, mine is red.
a decent phone
I recently had to replace my Nokia when it wouldn't turn on and I figured i should opt for a blue tooth phone so I could "get with the times" so to speak. This was the only decent phone I could find within my price range at metropcs since they seem to have stopped offering decent nokia phones.
small and sleek
very loud ringer
very clear display
sharp camera clarity
non customizable short cut buttons
no streaming video
sucky ringer options
battery life is not as good as my Nokia's was
once one bar is gone the others are not far behind
the phone is so new that I cannot find compatible chargers or a case at non metro retailers ( theyre too expensive in metro stores)
speaker phone is horrible. there's too much background noise when I am talking to people they cannot hear me.
vibrate and ring option is only available if the ringer is turned all the way up.
If you have the phone open when it rings the ringer is almost inaudible.
For the most part, even though I have far more cons than pros, my issues with the phone are mostly cosmetic. Except for the battery life its a decent phone.
-Has great clarity and reception with many volume control levels
-Talk time battery life is only 3 hours, but most others only go up to 3.5 hours
-Very customizable userface
-1.3 MP camera
-Bluetooth wireless technology
-Mobile Web ready
-Overall I am very pleased with this phone so far for what it cost
