Please read the product description carefully for all unlocked cell phones.

Some unlocked cell phones sold by Newegg may have previously been locked to a specific carrier. A carrier-locked cell phone may often have carrier-specific applications and branding. Some of these applications cannot be unlocked and/or may not function with a different carrier. Also, applications requiring a data plan may result in data usage charges from the original carrier.

In addition, the cell phone box may arrive unsealed and the cell phone may appear previously handled. The unlocking procedure requires unsealing the box and manually handling the cell phone. In this case, the cell phone should not be considered “tampered with” or “defective”.

4 out of 5 eggsA Phone

Pros: As far as I can tell it works as advertised.

Cons: "Manual" lacks any actual information on the phone's menu options or their effects. This was a problem because the phone arrived configured to display in Spanish. After failing to find the language options by stumbling around, I looked online and found I was not the first person to have their phone arrive configured for a language other than the dominant one for their region.

Other Thoughts: When I get this phone, it arrived in monolingual packaging, the box, the labels and the quick start guide were all English-only - despite the phone itself being set to Spanish.

It came with continental Europe and US power adapters, but not the UK power adapter shown in the Picture gallery on NewEgg.

Also - it was smaller than I was expecting.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes exactly what its supposed to do.

Pros: Ordered this unlocked phone for $59 and free shipping. Arrived quickly. Charged the battery. Inserted my SIM card from Petro Canada Mobility (which uses the Rogers network), then made and received calls straight away. Perfect. The quality appears fine to me, slides nicely, backlight keys. Menus appear easy. Can't speak for all the other functions as I don't care about those.

Cons: None, it does what its supposed to do.

Other Thoughts: I wanted an inexpensive unlocked phone for travel to US in a few months and this should do nicely. I'll just need an AT&T SIM card (or similar) when I get there. My current provider's card (Petro Canada) works with no problems. It came in a sealed box, when first powered up it asked me to select a language, no problems there. I'm happy with it.

4 out of 5 eggsPhone to replace an faulty one

Pros: Bought this unlock phone to replace my faulty Samsung D807x. Very similar operation. Improved reception and outgoing voice. Has FM radio and Alarm. Lighter weight.

Cons: Has different connector from D807x and X427 of the same company. Unable to use the charger and headset from my other Samsung phones. Why doesn't they use the same type of connector if they are from the same company.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best phone for the money period

Pros: It does it all. It has's easy to use. The radio feature blows my mind. It's compact yet solid as a rock. There have been some who haven't liked this or that. Yes the lock unlock can be a little bit of a pain..but really would you want the phone dialing people from your pocket or something? Great reception and batt. life. Chargers aren't a problem standard Samsung using mine from my sgh-t639

Cons: If there are any they fade with I said the radio feature is something I hadn't really thought about. It works so well and when you figure that you get those ear buds for free it's a slam dunk. I have another Samsung phone so chargers aren't an issue. 20 pin works with it.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what i wanted

Pros: Small size, good battery life, unlocked, fake call feature, fast and easy to use, quick delivery, cheap, sturdy, decent camera

Cons: Comes with european charger (and a n.american adapter), older operating system

Other Thoughts: This phone is exactly what i was looking for, a simple phone that doesn't feel like a tumor when its in my pocket. I like unlocked phones so that i can bluetooth my own ring-tones from my comp and also because i can switch mobile service providers, bring the phone over seas etc. The phone came with a note in the box saying that some boxes may be opened to unlock the phone or for quality testing, the particular phone i received was not opened. I've never owned a Samsung before but it was really easy to navigate the operating system. The camera has a few features and is better than i expected.

4 out of 5 eggsSimple & smooth

Pros: Small, battery efficient, simple, SAME plug/adapter as most Samsung phones

Cons: People with large fingers may find the small keypad difficult to use, but that will be true of ANY small phone which is majority of phones nowadays. The days of mobile handsets the size of cereal boxes are long past...

Other Thoughts: If you need a quad-band unlocked phone, this is a great solution for a low price. Especially if you have other Samsung phones or have chargers from other Samsung phones -same connector and specs.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy simcard installation, menu easy to navigate.

Cons: Strange power adapter.
Ordered a brand new one and received an opened box item with missing instruction manual. Radio option does not work. Lock is every often and can be annoying at time.
