          Nice phone with a few fatal flaws...

          Comments about Samsung® S390 No-Contract GSM Phone for NET10™:

          The phone is a great attempt at a smart phone. Wifi, 3G and multimedia messaging all included. Where it falls short is on the features and ability to modify some very inconvenient button mappings.

          For example, the browser button is always the right large button. When you hit this button it immediately connects to 3g data and starts to charge you money... would love to remap that to a smaller button, or access it through a menu. Also, there is no option for the browser to have it connect only when on WiFi. Having this option is standard on many phones and saves you money when the browser is accidently opened, but not on this phone. There are options to "code lock" certain features so you must enter a security code before getting access to them, ironically, the browser is not one of these features.

          Where the phone really fails is in the locking mechanism. To lock the phone you have to hold down a small button for a few seconds. However, to unlock it, all you have to do is hit the two largest raised buttons quickly. It can even be unlocked by a single press right below the scroll button where these two buttons are connected.

          I can't tell you the number of times the phone has been in my pocket and unlocked itself and then dialed calls, opened the browser or turned off/on. Doesn't give you piece of mind using it.

          Another flaw is their Bluetooth headset interface. You can connect a headset, sometimes it will pipe the audio through it, sometimes not. But the most annoying thing is that when you try to use only the headset to make a call, you can't. The phone has a voice recognition system where you can say "Call Mary" and it will do that, but you cannot access that feature unless you go 2 menus deep into the interface. When you press the call button on your headset, nothing happens. You must use the phone to initiate the call, then it will pipe the audio to the Bluetooth headset if you are lucky.

          All in all, I wouldn't recommend this phone. I was excited at first and it does have a lot of features, but they are so crippled and buried that it isn't worth it.

          The camera on the phone is decent with good options.

          Comments about Samsung® S390 No-Contract GSM Phone for NET10™:

          Initially, I adored the phone. For the price, I was able to use Wifi or 3G to search for the nearest store locations or check for bus arrivals. I wish it had a FM radio like my previous phone, but the mp3 player is loud enough. Even though the camera isn't as sharp, the settings for size, brightness or even frames are vast! The navigation is similar to a Blackberry where the center square button is like a rolling mouse. Even though there are many great qualities, the keypad lock was terrible. I usually put my phone in my backpack/purse where the phone is easily squished by items. The items in my bag unlock the keypad and dials random numbers and even emergency a few times. I am afraid that my phone will constantly dial numbers, so I need to frequently check my cellphone. Because of this unreliable keypad feature, I am searching for another phone.

            The phone does everthing it says it will. I bought this phone for the wifi. I can even hook up to my home computer. get to know your phone's wifi and learn how to save the wifi connections. NATURALLY a wifi connection with security will not let you in!!! The phone uses t-mbile rather than verizon or at&t, Which is a welcome surprize. Very inpressed with my normally low signal area, I don't have full bars!! but service is equal to at@t and verizon and sprint. Had them all! NEVER lost a call and clear connection. I think it is due to the wifi enabled gives me 3g that others will not give in my area. This phone and t=mobile are great together

                WiFi capable means Net10 has put firmware in the phone that drops you off WiFi after couple minutes, then will not let you reconnect.Also, while on WiFi you can watch YouTube videos, but after it kicks you off, phone claims - Video Not Supported! Phone does NOT support ANY video formats from CNN, MSNBC, etc.My next phone will be an unlocked MaxWest or Palm Pixi Plus,which has REAL WIFI!

                Comments about Samsung® S390 No-Contract GSM Phone for NET10™:

                Overall this is a decent phone, and at the time of this writing it's the most advanced "non smart phone" they have on Net10 or Tracfone. Note however, because this phone has 3G on it, they charge per DATA, not time, when you send picture messages now. The phone is by default set to resize photos you take to "600k" sizes - about 1000x800 pixels. When you send them, it will take approximately NINE minutes PER MESSAGE off of your total - repeat - per message. You have to search deep within the applications menu to find the setting to lower this to 300k (for a 5 minute charge per photo) to 100k for a small image and 3.5 minute charge per photo sent. Net10 customer service on three attempts did not have a clue about this - they said the phone was defective (!). So be aware of this... if you send tons of picture messages, this may not be the phone for you unless you get the unlimited data plan. Likewise, when on 3G and not Wifi, if you browse the web it can rack up $$$ in time per data browsed... NOT time browsed. I recommend this phone only to those who are aware of this and can deal with it.
