If you have one of those beginners Andoid phones, this is the phone to buy. Itt's an Android, It's super fast. I could go on and on. Best of all it's $99. Only one slight problem is the battery life. Under normal use it goes for a day to a day and a half. Solution: buy a better battery 1600-1900 megahertz. GEAT PHONE!
Before I bought this I researched all the Straight Talk Androids. The number one thing that hooked me was that is uses the Verizon network. Most the bad reviews on the other phones were based on no service in their area. This phone just came out as I was ready to by the LG Q and boy I am I happy that I found this phone before it went out of stock. This phone gets great reception, have had no problems the only thing I was a little disappointed about was that it did not have a forward facing camera for Skype. But then I thought about it, I never use Skype nor do many of my friends. For $179 can't beat it.
The phone is ok but the main issue is that I can only get one bar my other phone gets 3 to 4 bars. I am thinking about sending it back. I guess if you lived where there was many towers it might be alright. I wanted to save money and the same time have good reception. The downloads with wifi works great. Overall I liked the phone it is just the reception that disappoints me.

Almost everything is positive on this phone. Easy to use, handle, understand and know how to navigate around the digital world. I am 73 and certainly not computer inteligent so if I can do it almost anyone can. The battery life is much shorter than advertised but still provides power for 2 average days. And, after all, every one needs a good nights sleep and while I sleep it is being charged ....
Overall I'm happy with this phone. It has great service, haven't been in many places so far that it hasn't picked up and I've been in the middle of nowhere a couple times. You def need a car charger for this phone bc it doesn't hold battery very well. My only complaint is my pics are saving automatic to my SD Card when I take them and not giving me the option to save them to my phone and then they go to DCIM file and I'm not able to apply them to my wallpaper, which is really aggrevating me. Does anyone who has this phone know how to fix this, I would love to know???
This is an awesome phone! The best I have ever owned! The touch screen is very responsive and the speech to text is such an amazing function. So much is offered on this phone. The only thing I would say is a "negative" is that you cannot set your ringtones to anything else except what is loaded on the phone. No music. Also, the battery doesn't even last for the day so I have to have my charger with me at all times but it's not the end of the world. Other than that, I have no complaints and I am enjoying the functionality of this phone. Much more than I ever anticipated for a straight talk phone.

If you go to "play store" and search for the app Zedge, you can get free ringtones and set them as your ringtone or notification. They may not have every song you want, but I'm sure they will have at least one. They also have wallpapers. I've only had this phone for a week but am having so much fun learning all it can do. Also, at the top of your home screen where the picture of the batterylife is, pull down the screen and shut down all the extras (mobile data, 3g, bluetooth...etc) that you aren't currently using. It's easy to turn on/off when needed.
The phone looks great and works good but it has issues that make it a big loser. Straight Talk price of monthly service at $45.00 can't be beat. Service is good as it is on the Verizon Network.
First problem is the phone will randomly power off for no reason. I read on line this is a problem with some applications but I have yet to download any applications. No fix from Samsung.
Second problem is on occasion you are unable to place or receive calls. To fix you must power down and then power back up again. No fix from Samsung.
Third problem is on occasion when you power up it shows a non standard battery in use even though I am using the ORIGINAL OEM battery that came with the phone. No fix from Samsung other than to change out the battery at my expense on a phone that is three months old!
Oh, to make matters worse Samsung has no answers for the problems. They refer you to straight talk and if you have never called straight talk before....good luck as they have the WORST customer service!!!
Do yourself a favor and use your money on another phone as this one is not the best phone Samsung has made!
I have had my phone for 3 weeks. Great phone, easy to figure out except I'm still a little confused on GPS. Great reception here in San Antonio, took a trip to Junction, Texas and NO reception at all, it is in a valley and I was aware that there are some little holes in Verizon's coverage. My complaint is trying to find a case. I ordered one, said it would fit our phone or the illusion. It didn't, I thought maybe it was defective. They sent me another. It didn't fit. Ordered a 3rd without the illusion too description, got it, it fit, but was scratched around the edges. I am now waiting for my 4th, this one is just plain Jane but with the rubberized feel. These were all e-bay purchases, saw the same things on Amazon. E-bay sellers very nice and assisted with the returns, except I had to pay the shipping. Sum it all up GREAT PHONE. None of the problems that I had read about in other reviews!
This is my third smartphone and by far the best. This phone has much better call quailty than my two previous smartphones. It's actually pleasant to make a call, now, and it works in the elevator and basement. Besides being a great telephone, it's a great little computer! The 1 Gb processer makes it fast for YouTube and browsing in general. I'm very impressed with this phone and it's smaller, thinner and lighter, and has much better battery life than my other smartphones. Best one I've used! It's a keeper!
I love this phone. It runs on the Verizon towers so the service is great. The screen is nice. I have read a lot of reviews about the battery life. It is what it is. Pretty much all smart phones will need to be charged daily. If you arn't streaming video and using the GPS than one full charge will get you through the day just fine. It is easy to set up and use. I am very impressed with this phone. I read reviews of various different phones for weeks before I decided on this one, and I am very glad I did. Overall I would highly recommend this phone.
