This is a great phone with a lot of functionality but perhaps a little too much personality of its own...
I've had an i760 for a number of years, I bought it on Ebay used for about $300 and it came with 5 batteries and 6 chargers.
This is the newest smartphone that you can get through Verizon that does not require the data plan. So if you want a smart phone and not a data plan, this is the best you can do.
But not to fear, for it does have wifi that works surprisingly well. With the built in wifi, you can connect to your home's high speed internet or to various free hot spots.
It runs on Windows Mobile. Windows Mobile has its ups and downs. A huge plus is that its been around forever so there's just tons and tons of apps for it. Games, IM, practical apps, all of it. This phone is also one of the few models supported by Qik (a video streaming service). For the most part, its fast and responsive and doesn't crash often. On the downside, there is no unified app market like you get on an iDevice or an Android phone. Windows Mobile in and of its self is about as user friendly and stable as Windows 98 with the task bar disabled with all of the added awkwardness and instability of a mobile device.
There's lots of little quirks with Windows Mobile that you might have trouble getting used to. Text message alerts are sometimes delayed, it can only sink with MS Outlook (unless you use FinchSync), Internet Explorer is hideously awful (install Opera!!), things like that.
They keyboard feels nice, and works well. The touch screen is sensitive and responsive. The call quality is fine. The overall build of the phone is quite solid. The phone is a bit of a brick, and it will weight down your pocket unless you have a belt clip. I have no idea how ladies fit these phones in their little purses.
A feature few seem to talk about is Bluetooth. The Bluetooth support on this phone is fine. I used mine with a set of Motorola S9 HD headphones often. Sometimes it would drop unless I put the phone in my shirt pocket. I used it with a very cheap WalMart bluetooth ear piece and the connection was solid with it. Sadly the earpiece was such horrid quality, it didn't matter.
The camera is nothing special. It takes OK pictures, it does not take video (with the stock camera app anyway). Its nothing to write home about.
Overall, its a nice phone. I used it for many years until the screen cracked for an unknown reason (I had it in my pocket). The phone has been dropped multiple times and had a little damage to the outside case, but the electronics were always rock solid. The battery life was quite decent. It would go for quite a long time on one of the extended life batteries.
After having this phone, I would not want to get another Windows Mobile device. When my i760 finally died after its hard life of hell, I replaced it with a Droid 3 which I put in an otterbox.
I would recommend this phone if you're looking for a smart phone with a lot of usability and not pay for an expensive data plan.
I would not recommend this phone if you're a fan of iDevices. It is quite different, you will bang your head.
Once you get used to Windows Mobile, its fine. Getting used to it can be a little bit of a challenge. I like this phone a lot better than my Samsung BlackJack II.
Be sure to update to Windows Mobile 6.1! This is a free update from the Samsung website.
SD card size is also limited to 2 GBs! Don't waste money on a 16GB card on
this phone is really great for men because it's a little more bulky making it easier for big hands to hold on to. it runs windows OS and is set up like a computer screen, so for ppl who don't like change, this is great! because it's set up just like a computer screen, there is virtually nothing new to learn. you go to start and then to whatever program you're wanting. simple, just like on a desktop or laptop. i had no problem with the wifi connectivity. found my router and connected flawlessly. for my purposes, even the camera took good pics. it's got the number pad right on the front so dialing calls is very simple.
honestly, this phone is very neat! it doesn't compare to android phones in regards to OS, but it wasn't meant to either. this phone would be perfect for a business person or executive that needs access to documents from Word or Excel because, being windows, it has those programs already on the phone, no need to find or download apps that are compatible.
i got this phone thinking because it was an older model i wouldn't have to get a data plan, but that was wrong. the phone is classified as a smartphone and verizon requires a data plan on all smartphones, regardless of age, or at least that's what i was told by 4 different online representatives and the rep at the local verizon store, as of feb 2013.
so, great phone, great value, great wifi connectivity. this phone would be perfect if it just didn't have to have data.
I've used this style of phone for the past 4 years. This is an older model phone, so not that easy to find, but did find a new one on ebay. The reason I still like this Samsung phone is that you can connect to the internet via WiFi and not have to pay for a data plan. Seems you can always find a free WiFi and is offered free at most airports, stores, and eating estabishments. Games include Bubble Breaker and Solitaire.
I wouldn't buy one again. First, the things on the touch screen are too small for my big fingers. It might be good for a woman's fingers. The screen would only light up once you slide the phone open. The slider had started moving in a rotational way due to wear. Keep in mind though that I also bought this phone used. In general, its a phone that tries to do too much. I just want a phone that texts and sends/recieves emails. Its too small to do Word or Excel or especially PowerPoint applications. Impresive but not practical. If you buy one, make sure to get the extended life battery. The regular one needs charging daily. The extended life battery is way better.
I bought the Samsung SCH i760 because I wanted to be able to use the wireless features without having to pay a mandatory data plan. I also did not want to renew my contract. I can check my social websites, download and play games, youtube, message friends, I dont really use the office features, but I love that it has them. I usually use my phone as a mp3 also, I can listen to my favorites or listen to music on pandora.
Pros: Touch Screen, stylus, wi-fi, PRICE, doesn't need
data plan, good for texting, phone, micro SD
Cons: not standard earphone size, only expadable by 2GB.
I tried to activate the phone online and it would ask for a Data Plan, it did not allow me to activate at the verizon website without one. I called customer service and the respresentative told me that I needed a Data Plan, I told him that the reason I bought this phone was because I did not want a Data Plan and that I would put a block on the Data anyway. He tried blocking the data for me and off came the data plan. I am a happy customer. (was a little worried for a minute)
I only paid about $45.00 for this phone, the last phone I owned, I had insurance on it for 6.99 a month, with a $90.00 copay. It's a total rip off. They are making less phones with Wi-Fi, so you have to purchase a data plan, just another way to screw us consumers out of our hard earned money
