Piece of crap!

This phone is definitely not worth buying. It will not hold a charge unless you don't use it! It also lacks most features of an actual phone, like Get it Now. My phone just stopped taking a charge. I've had this piece of junk for almost 2 years now, and I can't stand it!!

Bare bones; won't hold a charge for long

As some of the other reviewers pointed out, it is a bare-bones phone! The one I have now is the second U340 I've owned--I returned the other one because it would only hold a charge if I didn't use it! This second one also will not hold a charge for long if you actually make or receive calls. I've seriously considered switching back to my previous phone, which at this point is about four years old but was MUCH more reliable plus it has features that this one doesn't, namely Get It Now. Overall, I think if you're contemplating purchasing this phone, I would suggest you don't! Less

Bare Bones Phone

This is not altogether such a bad phone, however, it has its drawbacks As I have read other people complain, The speaker phone is nearly unusable unless it is deathly quiet around. The battery life didnt bother me, I charged it all night every other night, and I have not once had it die on me or start beeping at me. The keypad wears out easily. My past phones and any phones that my friends have had for quite some time seem to have no problem, but this one refuses to accept my input unless I press deliberately, and forcefully. This is a huge problem when you are attempting to text especially when you consider that you can't add words to the memory. You end up typing nonsensical words to your friends which costs you more money, or takes up another text. The picture quality is fair. I have found no way to delete the old crappy wallpapers that come with the phone, which annoyed me, though the stock ring tones aren't as bad as some I have heard. Over-all not a bad phone, you just get what you paid for, so I suggest you pay for the upgrade. Less

Annoying glitch

This phone is fine for a basic phone. I like the size and appearance of the phone. The issue is that I cannot make the settings stay set.

This phone is fine for a basic phone. I like the size and appearance of the phone. The issue is that I cannot make the settings stay set. I have been back to Verizon, and they said it was a software problem, so I left it with them for a couple of hours, while they loaded the latest software, but it still doesn't work. I emailed Samsung two days ago, but they have not responded. It's annoying to set a ringtone and have it reset to another one as soon as I receive a text message. Bad service from both Verizon and Samsung. I much preferred my LG phone. Less

I owned this phone for a little over a year. There is nothing fancy about it. If you want a general phone to call and text on, this is a good phone. I am very rough on phones and this one held up quite well. The only reason it finally died was when I accidentaally dropped it in a bucket of water for the 3rd time. Would have bought it again but they didn't have it in the store. Less

disappointed

from Amazon
While the phone doesn't have a bad look for the price they fail to inform you that it has no get it now options which means you cannot download ring tones or any applications, not even your phone book if you have it backed up on the computer. All in all my old clunker of a phone has twice as many options as this newer model.

Sure, it's free, but there are other free phones with better features and, I'm confident, better build-quality. I was given this phone by my employer about a year ago. Immediately, I was annoyed that it lacks bluetooth support and it doesn't have good reception. It wouldn't pick up signal even when friends with other Verizon phones did have signal. I started having more serious problems with it a few months later, mainly with the charging connection at the bottom only working intermittently. Finally, a few months ago (less than a year after getting it brand new), the "OK" button and the arrows surrounding it stopped working, meaning that you can't get to any of the menus. I hated this phone so much that I made sure my new phone was not made by Samsung. Less

beautiful and small but don't waste your money

from Amazon
I have this cell for 3 month and is already broken, the charger connection is weak, even considering that the guy of the store who sold me the phone warned me about that and that I was ver very carefull .... nothing to do about it, It's a poor design

Avoid Buying This One!

from Amazon
I "upgraded" my phone on Friday to this one. It had a way below-par signal. I was not able to get any phone calls. Once and a while the call would go to voice mail without the phone ringing. Could not get a good signal anywhere anyplace with this phone. Had Verizon, where I purchased it, check it out....More
I "upgraded" my phone on Friday to this one. It had a way below-par signal. I was not able to get any phone calls. Once and a while the call would go to voice mail without the phone ringing. Could not get a good signal anywhere anyplace with this phone. Had Verizon, where I purchased it, check it out. The following Monday I exchanged it for another cell phone that worked. Less
