I know that others... eight pages of them... have said that the ring on text doesn't work, but mine does!! I have a feeling that they've fixed the problem. My local store just got a new shipment of these so I decided to try it. I figured it the ring on text didn't work I wasn't all that concerned. Much to my surprise it works perfectly! I love all the features of this phone. I was worried that the buttons would be too small on the keypad, and that I'd have trouble getting used to the numbers being mixed in with the letters, but so far it hasn't been an issue. The way the buttons are positioned I've actually had better luck than I did with my last phone. I am so glad I switched to Straight Talk, too. Several friends and family recommended it and I am also a satisfied customer. With Verizon cell tower access, why pay 3 times as much for a plan. I would recommend this phone if you aren't interested in a smart phone, this is the one for you!!

This little phone works great. The text messages do alert but you have to turn the alert on. Everything works as a basic talk and text phone. Don't expect it to work as a smartphone. It is not. Text app takes some getting used to but works fine. Those of you complaining of only 160 char texts....it's a CDMA phone. That's how all CDMA carriers work. The mp3 player works fine. You can set all things to be stored on the SD card. Also if you format the card in the phone I've found a 32gb card will work well. People give this phone a bad review but you have to take time to learn the phone and not expecting miracles from a $10 phone. It's a good phone for talking and texting. That's pretty much it. You want more shell out some money. Straight talk works great for me. Def saves me so much money. Yeah i gave up a galaxy note 3 for this but times are tough. Work is scarce. If you just need the basics this is quite a bargain.

I was looking for a phone that runs off of a Verizon tower so I purchased this phone a few days ago. The service is good. I use the 30 dollar plan. It's a very basic phone- easy to figure out for the most part. However, the buttons are small so it can be difficult to text with, and that's mostly what I use my phone for. Also, I can't figure out how to make the phone beep or make a noise when I get a text! I changed the options, but it just won't work. That was a disappointment because I like to know when I get a text. If you want a phone that looks similar to a blackberry, and is a lot cheaper, I'd recommend this one. Or if you're looking for something that's basic and affordable. For me personally, I'm fine with the phone but I don't think I'd buy another one.

DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE

DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE! I love the phone but it has a defect that is in a bunch of the phones of this model. It won't make the ding sound when you get any kind of message--all it will do is the message indicator appears on the screen but no sound. I know how to do all the settings for the phone. If you aren't looking at the phone you won't know if you get a message. I have tried 2 of these phones and it is the same problem. Straight Talk customer service says they have had other calls about this problem. Samsung is no help--they just refer you back to straight talk So now I have to get some other model cause I have to know when I get a text for my work.

This phone is not in anyway as good as the previous phone that it took the place of....Ringer is not as loud....Sound quality is still good....Verizon service is great in my area, BUT as everyone else has said you have no way of hearing when someone sends you a message....I have tried all the settings and it just will not signal me with a sound that indicates I have received a message!!! Taking this phone back to Wal-Mart tomorrow....I wonder sometimes how products like this get released without even being tested first....I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PHONE FOR ANYONE WHO DEPENDS ON HEARING a signal WHEN THEY RECEIVE A TEXT!

  • A. I've seen this complaint about this phone a lot, but I never had trouble with it. Make sure that the ringer is on, the button to do that is on the left side. To turn vibrate on, hold down the space key.

  • A. Contrary to what some have said, it's simply a problem with samsung and/or straight talk. The predecessor phone, The R355 DID in fact alert people to a text and phone call-- EVEN in MP3 player mode! This is just a bad phone purchase. Mine's going back tomorrow, because I would NEVER have bought this had I known that.

  • A. The phone will not sound when you get a text or voicemail!!! It must be a technical glitch that the company wasn't willing to fix. I emailed straighttalk directly and they confirmed that you will not get an alert tone when you get a text or voicemail!!! Dumb right?? I hate this phone! Uugghh

  • A. The phone is broken. Talked to a bunch of people on this and the only thing they really are telling me is to take it back if I want to get a tone for the messages. I am so angry I could kill this phone but it is going straight back tomorrow. They can keep a $60 phone that don't work right.

  • A. It is a flaw that the phone has. I got this product yesterday and encountered the same problem. I looked online for a solution, but found that there were none. I then contacted Straight Talk and was told that the text message alert feature on this phone was unavailable. I honestly should have read the reviews of this product before I purchased it.

  • A. According to Straight Talk, the answer to that is yes. I did notice that I had more signal than with other straight talk phones so I would assume that it's either Verizon or AT&T. However, their customer service is terrible. Most people don't know what they are talking about and their answers are inconsistent. If you re-ask a question, you sometimes get a new answer. I had spoken to 5 different representatives to see which phones would be covered by a Verizon tower. At times they will tell you it's covered by AT&T and Verizon while someone else will say that a phone does not share those two towers so it's either AT&T/T-Mobile or Verizon. The honest truth is that they don't know and these people really don't care. I usually received an answer where it's either or. It's either Verizon or AT&T, and some said it might be T-Mobile. You won't ever be 100% sure. So the most i can say is that this specific phone has more signal and works (at times) in tunnels. So I'm guessing it really is Verizon, at least a fair amount of the time.

  • A. This is a CDMA phone, which is the signal Verizon and Sprint use.

  • A. Yes it is. Straight talk CDMA (ends in C) phones run off the Verizon network. Their phones than end in "G" run off either ATT or T-mobile towers. You can tell which by looking at the SIM card of even the unopened box. It will have a string of numbers and within those numbers it will say T4 or T5. T4 is ATT, and T5 is T-mobile.
