          this phone was awful, beause there was never no connection through wi-fi, or interent, says needs java enable, when it was on already.

          i was very disappointed in this model, the Prevail I was much better. I need a phone with constant availablity, not this no service all the time.

          Comments about Boost Mobile™ Samsung Galaxy Prevail™ II No-Contract Phone:

          Listen to all the other reviews and do not buy this phone its not worth the money. Traded in a LG Venice which also is a bad phone and they dont even sell it anymore and got this one.
          It frequently shuts down and restarts. Constantly drops calls and has poor sound quality. Its only a matter of time before they pull this one off the shelves too.

              I love this phone and I would tell others to buy it. It has clear displays and is easy to use. It is my first touch tone phone! It is fast and the games play great. The only problem I have had with it is when I have is when talking on the phone, the sound quality, it not always the greatest. But I am pleased with it!

                  From the start this phone has had poor sound quality. A lot of static when on a call. Returned the phone once, was told in store the phone should not be doing that. New phone did the same thing. I would frequentl have to shut the phone off and turn it back on just to be able to load an app, as it would throw me out of the app as soon as i tried loading it unless i powered the phone off then onn again. Now im being told because i bought the extrra warrenty that it is a OS issue therfore not something i could even exchange for a new phone. if it was a hardware issue im told i could get anpther phone provided i wanted the same pices of junk prevail II. Whic i dont, the phone wont evem let me acess photos to delte picturs which im told i have to do to fix my issue of error message saying im out of space. Even though all photos are saved to the SD card. I have about 50 photos and 2 videos by the way.

                  Comments about Boost Mobile™ Samsung Galaxy Prevail™ II No-Contract Phone:

                  Overall Samsung should have done better with this phone. It's aggraving to attempt to make calls or search something on the web when the phone freezes the way it does. Sometimes the only way to unfreeze it is to restart it or remove the battery and put it back. If these issues were to be corrected, the phone would really be worth the money being paid for it.
