We purchased this phone and the clear, hard plastic case for my soon to be 16 year old son. The screen died within 7 days of using the phone. No he did not sit on it and no he did not drop it. The plastic case is well intact and there are NO signs of damage anywhere on the case or phone. We were sitting in the car, he sent out a text message, closed the keyboard, received a text, reopened keyboard and saw the screen was pink. He proceeded to respond to text message and I suggested he restart the phone. Once the phone restarted, the screen was black with a couple of colored stripes down towards the keyboard. We attempted to return the phone and get a new one but was accused of everything under the sun including keys being pressed onto the screen. So I STRONGLY suggest everyone be extra careful when it comes to the screen. Don't bother purcashing the case for it because it obviously doesn't protect the phone!

I have used this phone on and off (in between other upgrades or phones bought online) and somehow always end up going back to it. While it may not be the most interesting or appealing phone on the market, especially with the way technology and cell phone manufactureers are going, it is definitley one of the most reliable. It's pretty user friendly and makes texting easy with the touch screen, T9 input method AND a keyboard. This could be even more facilitated with threaded messaging and the keyboard tends to lag behind the speed of my fingers. The phone is built rather sturdily and has yet to fall apart after my two years of use. The battery life is wonderful (can usually go for 2.5 days) and call quality isn't bad. I've ran this phone over, dropped in a cup of water AND a swimming pool and dropped it numerous times. And nothing. This phone is a warrior!

had sprint and loved my phone and service but my spouse had att so we went for the family plan with them and cancelled my sprint service.I wanted a phone similar to the one I had with sprint so I found the samsung flight looked good loved the touch screen, thought bout it for a few hours in the store and decided on the phone. Got it home worked great for all of a week then everytime I would type a text message my phone would add all these crazy letters and numbers on its own..aggravated?? definately! As if thats not a pain I had a plastic screen protector on it and then the touch screen quit working so I took the protector sheet off and it still wont work. The only application that works is the (dial) button. I try to hit any other button and it selects (dial) again. SO if I get a text message or need to look up a number I cant. I have tryed to take the battery out and re-upload the phone yeah that doesnt work. I havent dropped my phone or got it wet nothing it still looks pretty dang brand new.. Very dissapointed not sure if I even wanna get a replacement. A phone that has only touch screen is prob. a bad idea from the beginning!!!

I have had five phones in the last few years and the Samsung Flight is BY FAR the best! The touch screen is the great, especially after you use the calibration feature to calibrate it. I was worried about texting on the small keys and the size of the phone, but I got used to it very quickly and the phone fits just fine in my pocket. It also has a touch screen numeric keyboard that works great (T9, Abc, and Handwriting modes). The call quality is awesome and the price with a contract agreement is phenomenal. The ONLY thing I don't like is a small rattling noise when the phone vibrates, but that is easily overshadowed by everything else the phone does very well. I got way more than I payed for. If you want a GREAT, durable phone that doesn't require a data package, and won't cost you an arm and a leg, the Samsung Flight is the way to go.

I liked this phone alot at first. Then the alarms would refuse to go off when i would set them(ie for work). The volume would turn itself on/off or up/down (to the extremes in the worse of times). Then the phone will say it is charging... while I am at work far from my charger. The battery icon even looks like it is charging. When it is not busy being the EXORCIST child, it decides to say "battery full" and then die. The phone is cute, nice style, LOVE the keyboard! I also enjoy being able to organize my phone by creating folders for pics and etc. The screen is great when it works.Sometimes you will sit there and tap, tap, tap, tap, and so on and get nothing, just start all over. Then there are times that the slide things on the screen go a lil bit then just dont go, then mutes or ends call. I have tried to reason with myself becasue I do love this phone... but it is not seeming like it now that I can see in front of me the list of pros and cons in which i have been avoiding. Samsung please help me, i do love this and i think I may be attached to it I would attach video but currently my samsung FLIGHT refuses to turn on or charge nothing!!!!
