Awesome. HAPPY NOW !!!
I already had the SGH-817 which was the same plus a keyboard. It ate the battery nearly before I could use it. It was totally disgusting. Charge it every time you turned around and it was still needing another charge. The battery finally got fat which probably meant it was fixing to blow. That was enough. I trashed it and got the one without the keyboard which is this a817. I like it very much! The battery lasts like it should, the phone works great, and it has good software. I AM HAPPY NOW !!!

Outdated features, no calculators, looks nice but not worth the $55 I spent
Great looking phone for someone on a budget. Draw back for me was due to its age and being AT&T many of the features are useless since the service no longer provides them. Could not find a calculater on it and could not find how to change the text tones.
Dialing and texting was easy but you still have to use the # pad to text instead of it just showing one button per letter.
No longer use it after a week, bought a used samsung galaxy S for roughly $60. I would price this phone around $30 to $35 not $55 like I paid.
Good phone but I would only buy it for the touch screen and looks if I was broke, not for its features.

The phone is Simple, Great, Cheap and Perfect.
The phone was perfect, as it was for my less technologically advanced uncle who wanted something simple. The phone is a great start for touch screen new operative and since it's not so involved with apps and whatnot, the battery life lasts more. Great phone, definitely recommend for anyone just getting acquainted with touch screen phones and new technology in general.

OK not great phone, decent value if you only have basic needs
We bought this to take to South Africa. We need an unlocked cheap cell phone. It has basically served its purpose, but we can't get the email function to connect to our gmail accounts. Very few apps that were loaded actually work. But we can call and text, which was the main purpose. Some basic functions like accessing your recent call history are quite tedious, have to go thru many menus. Call quality is mediocre. Haven't tried taking pictures.

One of my best eBay purchases EVER
This phone replaced an old clamshell whose only feature was a camera. I love the Samsung....it's user friendly has a lot of built in apps and features. One of my best eBay purchases other. The dealer was prompt in shipping....not all of us need or want an iPhone. Five stars all around.
