sweet if you have the cash
Very cool little phone - makes girls flip out for sure. Excellent features and display, especially for such a small phone. Most people won't see much of this unit because it is limited edition at select Telus dealers, but it so nice. Pricey at $600 retail, but a full package with two batteries, desktop, earbud, and case. Definitely designed for the ladies, but still very good. The only potential issue is no analog... don't take this to Saskatchewan to your uncle's farm. Basically a Samsung a520 in a smaller format... check that phone for more reviews if there's not much here.
Handset For a Certain Market Niche
This handset is the Samsung A520, marketed for a specific market.
1.Easy to Navigate
2.Excellent Reception even in some sections of the Montreal Metro System(RF quality seems to be outstanding) although I did not run a complete test on it
3.Reasonaable good battery life for a CDMA phone
1. Too expensive for the average person who likes the phone but can't afford it

Not that attractive/ but it isn't bad
The phone works good, but doesn't have a lot of features, and looks weird. If you want something durable, and no features, that doesn't have an outside screen, and can be easily found for Canada, get this. If not stay clear away from this phone.
When messages are sent the phone shut it will cancel the message. It becomes aggravating, and has done this on all Samsung's on the old Samsung UI that i've had.
All but my beloved a610 have done this. It should reguardless still send, as it does with my RAZR i own currently.
Looks also jitterbug-ish.
ALARM CLOCK (mis-print)
This phone actually comes equip with 3 alarm clocks. Perfect for the person who can't wake up in the morning. I set all 3, 15min apart so I'm guaranteed to wake up!!!
Also this phone allows you to separate and catergorize people into 5 different groups (in the phonebook) which come pre-named, however you can re-name and personalize everything in this phone, including the different groups. Each group can have it's own ring, it's own color, it's own name...AND within the groups, each individual can also have their own ring, (as well you can add pictures to individuals, so when they call a certain animal or face will show with the caller ID!!!)
Stylish and sleek this is a great phone to own, (I've had mine for over 6 months and I still get complimented on it every day!!) however because it was limited time only, it may be hard to find one now. It's also a little prestigious, as again it was limited time only, and it cost around $600.00 (for anyone already on a contract). Definately not a phone for the average user.
Keep in mind this phone is digital ONLY so don't plan on using it in any analogue areas (see your dealer).
