This is a great phone for the money, I purchased it so I wouldn't have to renew my contract and purchase a more expensive phone. Keyboard works fine, reception is good. Picture quality is ok but I don't really use it for pics. Works great for calls and texting. U have to be careful the back slides off fairly easy. I would definitely recommend for the price.

This phone is great when it comes to texting love the features that this SAMSUNG a177 has. They can do a little better with the camera, not showing up clear needs improving, other than that its better then the Razor V3 phone I had, I paid $500 for it and it was a wast of my time. People go get this SAMSUNG SGH-a177 and believe me you will love it

This phone also included a blue tooth headset which made this a great buy. The phone is working great and does just about anything you can do with a more expensive smart phone. I am very pleased with its performance. I have an AT&T acccount. So all I had to do was move my SIM card to this phone and I was good to go.

Got the $60 unlimited plan , guess I didn't do my homework other companies have unlimited web too but not at&t you still got to pay for it. I was on the web for a minute and it cost $2 , crazy, oh well guess I won't be using that feature. But aside from that and the fact the blue tooth only works on the head piece , it is a pretty good phone, meaning you can text and make calls.

I got this phone as a replacement for a more expensive phone that I killed in the laundry. It was the best deal out there for a phone with the basic modern amenities. Though I was pretty sure you could just switch out your ATT SIM card, I was slightly hesitant that it wouldnt work. There are instructions inside the phone specific to placing a previous SIM card in the phone- it worked perfectly and I am SO happy I didnt buy a different ,more expensive phone!!! This one is perfect!

  • A. only the AT&T phone, not other prepaid phones.You have to put the sim card from your old AT&T phone, and put it into the new prepaid go phone from AT&T.

  • A. YES... Straight Talk uses the Verizon network and their plans ALL include data/internet... $30 will get you 1000 call minutes and 1000 txts and 30MG's of web. $45 will get you totally unlimited everything (per month)... If you buy the "top-up" cards at Walmart, all you pay extra is sales tax.. One price is good for 30 days... NO extra charges... BTW, their web browser is NOT limited to just a few certain sites... you can go just about anywhere you want on their web...

  • A. If you are a current AT&T customer, all you have to do is put your SIM card in the Go phone and it will work with all your current features... phone number, plan, etc. Unfortunately, with AT&T, Data plan is something you have to add for an additional price.
