Learn more about the SAMSUNG SGH-I617


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”.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this phone.

Pros: Great little phone!
- keyboard is small, but after a couple of days messing with it, I was really fast at typing. My fingers are not really small, so people with bigger fingers shouldn't have a problem with this phone.

- camera is ok. But I never bought this phone for the camera. It does the job

- applications. I had a few applications on there, like, tether app, and my favorite was Microsoft office. I had people constantly sending me word documents for work, it was nice to view them when I wasn't at my desk. On rare occasions I even edited the documents and sent them back. Believe me, it was really handy.

- email. No unified inbox, but I kind of like not having it. It just kept everything neat and organized.

- tethering. It took me a while to get the tethering to work, but after finding articles online, I was up in no time.

Cons: had to restart the phone a couple a times a month, because the internet wouldn't work sometimes. But then again, my phone is really old.

Other Thoughts: Great smart phone, good amout of features, and is reliable.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Shiny, nice specs. Works great between full resets (see below)

Cons: Works for 1-2 weeks at a time before a complete OS reset is done. I did not buy from Newegg and am now stuck with this paperweight.

Other Thoughts: Have gotten a total of 3 of these units (2 warranty replacements via cell provider) in the first 6 months of ownership. The longest I ever had it work was 3 weeks when I did not do any software upgrades or install ANY programs. When doing such things expect it to last 1 hour-2 weeks tops before you need to do the equivalent of an OSRI loosing ALL DATA!

Read other online reviews it is a model specific issue with no solution. Samsung tried to tell me I must be doing something wrong after waiting 3 weeks for them to get back to me after I gave up on the tech support and endless replacements from my cell provider.

Been gathering dust for months as I have enough scruples not to re-sell it to someone.
