Learn more about the SAMSUNG SGH-A187


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 eggsPhone works great

Pros: Calls sound clear enough, reception pretty good even far out of the area that my old phone could not. texting OK, it works fine and it has conversations that's nice I liked it.

Cons: Not my fave of a phone, but it works so good. that's all it matters.

Other Thoughts: For the price, can't complain.. it can go on the internet, but not Facebook. that's fine with me.. I bought it solely for talk and text most.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Phone but can't import/export contacts

Pros: Phone is unlocked.
Great price - phone is a few years old, hence the price, but I don't need latest and greatest model.
free shipping.
Fast shipping (2 days from New Jersey to Ontario) with excellent tracking online.
phone works great and am able to use SpeakOut SIM card and service.
Qwerty keyboard keys

Cons: Qwerty keys are very small, hard to press and hard to read.
phone was deliberately designed by Samsung with no way to import or export contacts.

Samsung rep confirmed that no software was ever available to do USB transfer and that USB transfer would not be possible, anyway.

He also confirmed that the phone was designed to NOT allow contact transfer by Bluetooth.

the phone WAS designed to allow file transfer by Bluetooth between this phone and another phone, and allow file transfer by bluetooth between this phone and it's microSD card. But no transfer of contacts.

Can transfer contacts between SIM card and phone memory, but anything copied to SIM card loses all other fields, only retains name and one number.

Plus, my old phone's SIM card will not work in this phone (old phone is a Bell Canada PAYG SIM - not compatible with the Samsung phone), so if I DID want to transfer contacts by SIM card swapping, I can't, unless I could locate a SIM card that would work in both p

Other Thoughts: As always, very pleased with NewEgg's service, pricing and shipping costs (free) and shipping time (2 days across international border - excellent!!).
however, there was no mention anywhere in the specs / info about the contacts / phonebook issue, which can be a dealbreaker, and would have been for me. Unable to return it.
Also, I submitted a review a few days ago, no sign of it yet. No idea if it has been accepted, queued up, banned, lost, not received.
