Nice phone for talk and text, but the browser is very basic and slow. Some of my ringtones sound different on this phone than any other I've used, but I can live with that.(Its hard to explain what it does with the ringtones.) Overall, I would definitely recommend this phone and Straight Talk service to anyone looking for lots of talk and text at a good price. This phone works on the GSM network such as AT&T and T-Mobile. We also have the Samsung r355c which works on the CDMA network such as Verizon and nTelos. It is a really nice phone. I like it better than the T401g. Straight Talk's CDMA phones work on the Verizon network, but I've noticed that this phone will not work in certain areas where Verizon will work. This is probably because Verizon "rents" those towers from a smaller cell phone company and Straight Talk is not authorized to use those towers through Verizon. I live in Louisa, KY and the phone will work there and everywhere that I've been north, east, and west of Louisa. If I travel south of Louisa, I lose a signal very soon and the phone has no service in a huge area of south-eastern KY. Apparently, Straight Talk will not work on Appalachian Wireless's towers (CDMA) who serves much of south-eastern KY.
