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”.

1 out of 5 eggsWhy did i buy this, why?

Pros: At this price there are NO pros!

Cons: No app support for this phone in the US what-so-ever! So basically all i have is a very expensive email reader. And it was not easy to setup an exchange connection.

The bada os can't hold a candle to android, my previous phone was a Samsung Captive and that phone was the bomb.

Other Thoughts: I thought i would give this a try just to see what bada/samsung has to offer. PLEASE learn from my lesson and DO NOT buy this phone!
