I use this with TMO's $30 100 min talk, unlimited text & data plan (the Walmart plan). TMO no longer sells this model, but it has all the features I need, and $300 for a feature rich smartphone is a very good price. A new phone sells for more on eBay. I replaced a Galaxy S 2, which has a 4 inch screen. I like the larger 4.8" screen. I wish the screen weren't glossy, but all phone screens are. Like all smart phones, it is loaded with apps you probably don't want, but can't remove unless you root the phone, which I don't intend to do. The screen is nice & the phone is easy to operate. I have had it for a few weeks now, and it has never frozen or had any problem. Battery life is OK unless you use battery eating apps/features such as wifi or GPS for an extended period. I like that it has a user replaceable battery. It would have been nice if it used the same size batteries as my S2, but it doesn't. You also need to spend some time tweaking the settings, or you will be overwhelmed by notifications. It would also be nice if it were easy to sync Android phones with Outlook, but that is really a Google issue, not a Samsung issue. This phone runs Android 4.3, and TMO is unlikely to upgrade it to KitKat, not a big deal in my opinion. I would definitely recommend this phone.
