Total garbage!

Worst phone I have ever owned. Buggy from the start, frequent crashes and freezes, sudden loss of reception during calls/texting just to name a few. I dread the day I got it and can't wait to throw it in the trash. AVOID THIS PHONE!!!

Great Phone! Sleek, functional and durable

Few things to say. Very durable, experienced many falls, still fully functional. Had it for 2 and a half years.Great reception, easy to use, programmable shortcuts, auto focus camera.

Few things to say. Very durable, experienced many falls, still fully functional. Had it for 2 and a half years.Great reception, easy to use, programmable shortcuts, auto focus camera. Bluetooth works great, you can print, stereo headset, file transfer, calender and contact transfer. You can turn off the power on/off sound which many people need, or so ive heard. No custom ringtones, the playlist function only holds a limited amount of songs, battery if not drained fully before a charge will only last a day or two after extensive use (100-200 charges). Also the cover for the headphone jack falls off very quickly, which can get annoying, also on that point it doesnt use a 3.5mm aux jack which is a huge pain, but instead a samsung headphone jack. Very shiny finish, very easily dulled. Also the ring in the centre is used like on an ipod, except this one actually spins, but after about a year it seems to have slipped off the sensor slightly because it only picks up a fraction of the turn of the wheel(You have to turn it 5 times to go down 1 item in a menu) Overall its amazing! But i have this phone with rogers so i cant say much about the fido service its supposed to come with... but it has so many features, such as premium messaging, mobile mail, msn and yahoo messengers, internet browsing, and downloading.Also has an audio recorder.I would recommend it to anybody! Also it says it doesnt have a video camera, which it does, or at least mine does....? Less

i have this phone on a fido contract now for 2 years , glad my contract is up , have nothing but trouble with this phone, fido says its the phone the phone reps says it fido come may my contract is done can t wait too smash this phone and drop fido they both are crap from my experience do not get this phone

too many bugs, do not purchase with fido plans

too many bugs with the fido plan, fido tell you to samsung support and samsunf support tells you to fido customer service. do not waste your money on this useless phone.

Great phone!

Really great phone, really sturdy, I've dropped mine a couple of times myself still perfectly fine. Lots of features and 'performs' well!

Very frustrating experience

I recently purchased a Samsung SGH-E747 model. Very frustrated. Cannot use my own ringtones. It keeps saying "Non-DRM file cannont be set as ringtone". After extended search on Inernet it seems everyone who got this cellphone will not by nothing from Samsung.

Great phone

I got this phone from fido pretty much for free. It's been a great phone, there's a lot of features, probably more than you'll ever use unless you're a total cellphone freak. The interface on the phone is very straightforward, it took me no time at all to get everything set up the way I wanted. There...More
I got this phone from fido pretty much for free. It's been a great phone, there's a lot of features, probably more than you'll ever use unless you're a total cellphone freak. The interface on the phone is very straightforward, it took me no time at all to get everything set up the way I wanted. There are a couple annoying things though. The softkeys on the homepage are locked to Internet and Email. I don't surf the internet with my phone (if I did I would have bought a Blackberry), and it upsets me every time I press one of those keys accidentally, especially when it could be used as a shortcut to my bluetooth headset or media player. Overall it's a great phone though, don't get me wrong. If you want a small, compact phone with lots of features, this is the one for you. Less

This Phone owns

I got this phone from Fido on a 3 yr contract ($17.50) "KILLER OFFER" and believe me this is the best phone i have ever owned .

great phone!
