Pros: The phone had all the features I wanted--ability to connect to WiFi, Full Qwerty keyboard, and potential for data plan.
Cons: The phone didn't work when I arrived in New Zealand because it doesn't contain the right frequencies corresponding to their Smartphone network.
Other Thoughts: Please keep up with the changing technology and if you are going to buy this phone triple check that it will work in the country you are traveling to by comparing the networks it works on. NZ's network changed about a year ago and now I'm stuck with another outdated piece of technology.

Pros: Small and compact. Other than that, going against guidelines, it is really easy to root (WILL VOID WARRANTY) and is therefore a versatile phone in that regard. Probably a good miniature tablet that can handle Skype.
Cons: Low memory; constantly crashes. Default OS downloads to 2MB cache, preventing you from downloading anything over 2MB, Samsung won't update. Won't handle many apps. Slow processor clock speed.
Other Thoughts: I recommend Smart Launcher instead of the default home screen this will reduce the phone crashing when hitting home.

Pros: I have had this phone [not from Newegg] for over 2 years. It still works pretty well. I think the screen looks great [even if newer phones are a little better these days].
Cons: Newer apps bog it down. Facebook and the like assume everyone has quad core tablets and stuff now so expect to have some kind of task manager to kill background apps. I spam my all the time to keep memory free. Also, there are a few quirky bugs. It will sometimes turn itself off when not in use. Last I researched it was a problems with a certain large batch of serial numbers and from what I understand a lot of refurbs are from that batch. It's annoying, but the phone still works fine.
Other Thoughts: Decent phone but memory and processor are showing their age. I think the latest official update was 2.3.5 Gingerbread.

Earpiece defective - i can't hear my caller/ring-out tone
Pros: Cosmetically good condition, no obvious scratches or scuffs. Both the phone and accessories were well packaged. I tested a few apps seems working fine. ATT locked. phone came in with iOS 6.0.1.
Cons: 1) horrible battery drain - not sure whether it's mainly due to iOS 6 universal batt drain issue, or a partially defective or very used battery - no idea how the refurbishment work was done to these phones 2) phone has no sound from earpiece (noticed when i tried to placed a call out, heard nothing on the handset; turning on loudspeaker did make it audible). Using a earbuds with mic will work, but the earpiece itself should work.
Other Thoughts: tried repair solutions Apple tech support suggested (since I own other Apple products, this phone shows no manufacturer warranty/support at all with Apple.com): "reset" on the phone; "restore iphone" in iTunes on Mac; eventually updated iOS to 6.1.3. Nothing changed the earpiece, still no sound as dead. I bought this phone with a $50 mail-in rebate promo, but I am very careful about the return/refund policy on refurb phones, especially with MIR. Newegg only offers 30-day replacement with no refund available for this phone. Plus filing MIR would void even only just a replacement support. They probably wouldn't pay for your return shipping - even it's defective reported by you. Glad I used shoprunner as my original shipping methods, so my return is surely free. Then I did test the phone using two days then noticed the issue.
Do your research well before buying this phone, and maybe other refurb non-refundable items from Newegg. good luck

Pros: Just about everything. Purchased thanks to a friends recommendation, whom has recently recently upgraded to a Droid 4. 32 GB micro SD card added post purchase, runs like a champ. PagePlus Clean per advertising.
Cons: I really can't think of a bad thing. Since I don't use the slide out physical keyboard can't comment about it. Unfortunately after I added a cover ( like I did ) means the multimedia dock is now packed away as unusable. But IT did work great without the aftermarket case. To be very picky, kind of wish the Android OS could be upgraded beyond 2.3.4 max.
