I love Samsung quality and S390G did not disappoint. The case is non-metallic but feels cool to the touch like metal. The form is slender and wide making it easy to hold and text with one hand. 3G and WiFi work flawlessly, can surf without burning your minutes on the $30 plan. S3905G has enhanced security to password each or all applications and contacts, however security does not block Internet access. Youtube videos look good, can upload from the phone. The 2.4 (diagonal) display is beautiful, bright, with dark blue background for soothing contrast, love that the clock and battery meter are easy to see at a glance. QWERTY keypad is wide, with a message key, calendar key, shortcut menu key stores up to 12 favorites from main menu and submenus. The scrollpad is feathery and lightening quick on menu options. Microsoft Exchange, Yahoo and Gmail are easy to setup (Gmail has a security setting you have to change online first), including several intervals for downloading. I've downloaded and used several apps from getjar.com including Google Maps, Platinum Mahjongg, Opera Mini, Accuweather, Microsoft Messenger. Bluetooth works great with FIAT's Blue&Me, let's me transfer my contacts to it and make calls, plays music thru the TomTom media center. I purchased a Samsung brand bluetooth ear piece and quality is good. Speaker phone is easy to activate, the microsd slot is conveniently located on the outside left and takes up to a 32 GB card. Phone books holds 2000 entries with many options including 4 types of phones, memo, email, default #, speed dial, groups, URLs, company, title, street address, picture, ringtone. Battery life is very good, comes with a 1000 mAh battery and wall-charger. One drawback is it easily pocket dials and browses the web...I advise anyone to use the keypad lock at all times. This is not a smartphone, nor a touch screen, not for the simple mind, the spoiled teen, nor the bored genius. $49 is a good price and I give this phone five-stars for doing everything it's supposed to do. Recommended.
