Rating: 3/5Good Phone but can't import/export contacts
This review is from: Samsung A187 Blue/Black Unlocked Cell Phone w/ Bluetooth v2.0 / 1.3 MP Camera (SGH-A187)
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.
