I got this phone for my 14 year old daughter and she loves it. It works great and the free Muve Music is one of her favorite features - not to mention that she loves the overall look of the phone itself. Call quality is good, but it does not work well at home. I checked before buying and it was supposed to work in our town. Texting works fine at home, though. It gets full bars everywhere else we go. I tried setting up the phone through the website, but it didn't work. I had to call customer service and they were very helpful in getting it set up. The speaker quality is excellent -sounds better than her boombox. With unlimited EVERYTHING, you can't beat this deal. The phone was only around $54, but it looks, feels and acts like a much more expensive phone.

I bought 2 of these phones in the beginning of the year because we (my SO and I ) needed new phones. I wanted something cheap and reliable, so after browsing phones we decided on this one. The phone it's self is great, although it does tend to run a little slow. I can say that the phones can take a beating. My phone has been dropped a lot and there aren't even any scratches on the touch screen at all. My SO dropped his phone in a bucket of water not realizing it was there, and it sat for a good 15 minutes. He took it out of the water, put it in a bag of rice for two days, and the phone works fine still. There wasnt any damage and even the speakers are fine. This phone holds up very well.

I got this mainly for accessing wifi for music, web, and email. This phone like a few of it's higher end Samsung cousins has a slot for a micro sd card to store pictures, music etc. But this very value minded lil device not only has the slot, but it comes with a 4gb micro sd card included. I have not seen that in my higher priced devices. The wifi works great, full access to google play store. Even has an android update available when you set it up. Considering all this phone does, plus including an sd card, for the price, is a solid WIN!

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

My daughter is very happy with her phone. She has wanted a phone for so long. She has no complaints. Why spend so much money on a phone that's touch screen for your child or children when you can have this phone that does almost everything that the expensive phone does. A really great idea for Samsung to invent a smaller version for people who can't afford these expensive phones. Absolutely love this phone and will be purchasing this phone again.

  • A. No. It is neither GSM network nor with unlocked SIM card. It has no slot for a SIM card. It is locked to Cricket CDMA network.

  • A. The Cricket Samsung Galaxy Discover Smartphone is a CDMA phone I was told by Straight Talk when I called them. Sometimes the decription of the phone will state which one it is (GSM or CDMA), or maybe it will be on the instruction manual that came with your phone. If all else fails, you could call Straight Talk directly using their 800 number and they will be able to tell you like they did for me. Also, I found this info on a Consumers Reports webpage when I was researching cell phones: "Before you buy a phone, consider the service provider. Major carriers rely heavily on two incompatible digital networks. Sprint and Verizon networks use mainly Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technology, while AT&T and T-Mobile use Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) technology. All of those carriers also support high-speed data networks. The network plays a big part in the capabilities your phone will have and, to some extent, its performance. Learn more about the service providers in our Ratings (available to subscribers)". From what I understand, the term "unlocked" means that it is a phone that can use any carrier because it's not "locked" into one specific cell phone carrier. But I think there may be a fee charged for unlocking the phone as I read someone's comment somewhere regarding this. Hope this helps.
