After years of being bound by contracts and basic phone service,my wife and I stepped into the android world. It was just in time as new grandbabies were being born. We are seniors and not as techy as the younger generation. We wanted more than just basic service for the money we were spending. The Samsung Illusion delivers. The only complaint is there is no manual to help get started and truly understand this phone. But it's been fun discovering the amazing features it offers. Speaker texting, and taking pictures to post on Facebook etc. Very cool. With our savings we were able to get a grandson a touch screen phone for his security. Iphone,Droid, and any other big name phones don't interest me. The Samsung Illusion has a lot to offer for the money. And that pleases both of us.
