I just got this phone 2 days ago, and someone asked me what is so amazing about it, well i said "what isn't so amazing about this phone!"

It has:
Stereo Speakers (Insanely loud)
Sprint One-click Wheel (Great for scrolling through songs)
Internet Speed is amazing thanks to EVDO
Great easy to use music player
Camera is great
Buttons are easy to use
Reception is AWESOME!
Watch Youtube Videos with minimum loading time (about 10 seconds)
Also comes with 1Gb memory card
Very Durable
Set music to play as background

I have not yet seen any flaws in this phone.

I give this phone a five for being a new generation MP3 phone that has a very loud speaker. We just sold the first one out of our store. So far so good!

Nice for music, "eh" for other stuff


Dec 9, 2009 by Xtremegene

I've had this phone for several weeks now.

Pretty sturdy (dual) sliding mechanism
Stereo speaker (when you slide the top part of phone down) sounds great
3.5mm Audio jack (main reason I got this)
Standard Micro-usb connector (about time regular phones start conforming...)
Easily accessible micro-SD slot (I threw in 2GB).

Click wheel- can scroll around with it, but D-pad functionality still exists as well. Nice for scrolling through web pages I guess (when you don't want to keep pressing down), but I've also accidentally sent incomplete text messages when I rotated backwards (changing fields) instead of moving cursor backwards with D-pad in the text message.
Screen- Large enough, but sadly not QVGA resolution.
Media files- It can actually play movie files (like MPEG-4), but you have to access it through the phone's file manager... there is no media application you can use to load and play them. Also skips frames at times (slow processor?), which is why I guess they never advertised or made this feature intuitive to use.

Web browsing- this is really more of a general Sprint issue. I think they switched some way their servers render pages a year or two ago, so if the browser decides to try to display it as a 'real'/desktop (but fit to your screen) webpage, it is unusable. Mobile portals that are still loaded as such (WAP) work well thankfully, for things such as mobile Yahoo or Gmail.
Opera Mini difficulties- this ties into the general web browsing issue and the application I'd have liked to use to get around it. I've never really been able to get Opera Mini 3 or 4 to run reliably(might try 5 soon, even if it's only in beta). It will install and run once ok, but after exiting it and trying to load it again, the application just hangs.

So in short, if you want a cheap (got mine for ~40 used) music phone, give it a try. If you do lots of web browsing or expect great application support, do some more research or look elsewhere.

Maybe I got a Lemon, but this phone is TERRIBLE!


May 30, 2009 by bkhawk

I had an old Samsung 920 that I was sad to see go. I thought I would have as good of luck with this one. But it's so frustrating to use. Even with key guard on, the phone will dial my last call before it goes into stand by to lock the carousel. I was dialing Sprint tonight, selected #2 prompt for active customer and it speed dialed my daughter more than once. Then I dialed in my account cell number when I did make it into the prompt, and the number was unrecognized after several more attempts. The only way I got through was starting with *2 first. As I said, maybe I have a Lemon, or maybe it is just a bad phone. Of course I am now 6 days past my 30 day return window as well. One last thing. I find the manual to be rather vague. That's probably because they now try to accommodate every foreign country. I will be calling Samsung on Monday to see what they can suggest. I hope they are helpful, otherwise I will be very disappointed. I will let you know if there is any important updates as to be fair to this product.

best bang for the buck on sprint!


Apr 4, 2009 by deanwoof

Car-mode is very nice paired with Bluetooth
Light weight
Amazing speakers
Easy to slide
Nice colors
Only $19.99!
All the Sprint features - navigation, tv, music, email, web

damn that T9!
sliding down is kind of dumb - put the speaker on the back? hello?

easily the best bang for the buck on Sprint right now. fans of dumbphones should like this phone and is a HUGE upgrade over the M520. it's fun to spell out cuss words in text and have the voice lady phonetically spell out each word.

the camera is very fast and snaps pictures with speed and ease.
