I got this phone then I needed a new SIM Card to replace the old one . I didn't have to pay a thing. I get to text and have an alert for when a text or picture message comes in. I just changed a ring tone for texting and kept a different one for incoming calls. U can even download other ringtones for free at tracfone.com thats the site that I've been with for 15 years now. The only thing I can't do is videos like I did before on my other phone. I just wish that this one now that I hope to find the GPS app thats on the phone. Less

Should have read reviews first

Disappointed in this phone for exact same reason - no text message alert. Even our very basic phone did this! Should have read the reviews before purchasing!!!
Got this phone a few days ago and I don't like it already. Taking it back to Walmart and getting a different phone that works right. Like to know when I get a text message by a ringtone of some sort.

HA!! Took the Samsung back and got me a phone that I love love LOVE!! I bought a LG Optimus Dynamic. First time I've ever owned a touch screen. Easy to use, awesome features. Everything I need and more in a phone. Good ol LG models. I have an older version LG flip top no frills, just a phone. It lasted me a long, long time. It still works, the keys are just now starting to stick a lil but it still works just fine. Thank you LG for your good quality phones. ;)

WHAT!!!???? haha... LAME, returned mine to walmart and by coincidence the sales girl said "yea my phone (same model) doesn't make a sound, I've tried everything"... DONT BUY SAMSUNG, AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE THEM DEMAND A REPLACEMENT THIS IS NOT A FEATURE. Less
