Six months later: Still very pleased with this phone and no problems at all. I thought I would add though that you should buy a USB cable with a microUSB connector on one end (Amazon sells them for $5 or so) so that you can connect the phone directly to your computer without having to use Bluetooth which is a nuisance. The USB connection will allow you to directly transfer photos and the like from the phone to your computer and to charge the phone at the same time (rather than using the included power bar). One negative will mention also is that this phone does not support plug in memory cards so you are limited to the 100 meg or so of built in memory and can't add to it so transferring things off your phone is important if you take a really lot of photos.

Does everything I need at a low price. I don't need a smart phone. We have a tablet and along with this purchase we are all set for our holidays in the USA - 2 TO 3 MONTHS EACH WINTER.
PROS: Nice and small to carry in a side pocket. The default setup is much less obtrusive than the LG under WindMobile, the LG would vibrate very loudly and beep far too often. On the Samsung, I find the battery length excellent with my low usage. I only have to charge it every 5-6 days. Unlike some reviews I saw about this phone, the auto-updater for the time and date works perfectly, it just corrected for daylight saving time no problem.
Both PRO and CON: The micro-USB charging port has a kind of funny cover that is at first tricky to use. You have to lift and rotate the cover in a way that looks opposite from the pdf manual for the phone. The PRO is that it protects the port, the CON is that is tricky and looks like something that could break very easily. However no problems with it so far. I am being very careful.
CONS: The voice quality is decent - good, I was from other reviews it would be better than the LG, but not so.. The screen and fonts are smaller than the LG. While I like its features much more than the LG, it seems a bit less sturdy. Check the battery cover every so often, there isn't much holding it on that I can see.
But overall, for occasional use, a very good phone.
One year later - Well, not quite a year. A couple of months ago, the phone started having a white screen when I opened it. I could still dial a number and call, but couldn't text or access any contacts, because I couldn't see anything on the screen. Until today, I was able to get it working by turning it on and off or plugging it in for a few minutes to recharge, but today, nothing seems to be working. I got good use out of it for almost a year, but feel a little ripped off now.
