Rated 1 out of 5 by from missing battery I can't believe I did not get the battery with my phone. I called and Cricket was going to send me out one right away. A few days later I got the wrong battery. I called again and told them my problem. I said, please send me a complete unit and I will return what I have so I don't get held up with activating my number. They said NO. I would have to send the other phone and wrong battery back before I would be mailed out a phone. I said that will take double the time I have to wait. they could not do anything for me. I then ask for the right battery. It's been a long time and have not received anything and still have an inactive number that I switched over to cricket

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This phone is JUNK! I am so glad I only paid $0.99 for this phone. The system doesn't allow you to transfer anything to the SD card and and after less than 24 hours it ran so slow it would be better to not have a phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice phone I'm happy with the phone but it needs more storage space. Can't download any pictures or apps because It's always saying that I don't have enough space.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrated. I was trying to buy my daughters phones for their birthdays. I wanted to buy 2 phones. I figured it would be cheaper online. The online system wouldn't let me purchase anymore than one phone/line. So I did. Thinking I could just turn around and buy the second one. Wrong. I couldn't purchase a second phone until I activated the phone (the one I just ordered that was still processing). Needless to say one of my daughters did not have a phone on their birthday. The Sol is a great phone and my girl lives it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst phone I have ever had. Half of the phone is bloat ware and upgrades, even with a card in it and all of my photos and everything possible going in into that card, there is never enough room. Do not buy this phone it is awful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Samsung I bought this a few weeks ago and am so happy to have another samsung phone. I had the Alcatel one touch flint and could not save pictures from text to gallery. I now can plus this looks like and works like an iphone. I just love it the speed is better too when I surf.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not recommended The phone only has 8 GB of storage, 4 when you set up the phone. You can get a better phone for around the same price, stay away from this phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I do not recommend this phone We got this phone free when we switched to cricket wireless. It's a good thing it was free because it is worthless. The phone only has 8 gb and the system uses around 6 gb. So it won't allow you to add any apps to the phone before running out of storage. This phone should not even be an option. So since we had gotten this one to change it out we had to pay the $25.00 activation fee which I felt should have been waived to upgrade to a phone that would actually work. This is the only complaint I have had with cricket wireless at this point.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No memory, disappointed from start In was so excited to get my new phone, I went from a 99 cent Galaxy Core Prime to this, so I thought it would be awesome, and it was not there was a glitch that would not allow me to view or use any photos from my SD card or my phone it was almost immediately filled up with memory even with only two extra apps very disappointed would have been a good phone with a decent memory and no glitch every time I went to my gallery it could not open my gallery I had to delete stuff, and no matter how much I deleted it would not open my gallery!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy I "upgraded" to this phone, and after just a few weeks I am having problems with it. When I initiate a phone call, the person I am calling can't hear me. If someone calls me, I can hear them, and they can hear me fine. Not happy with the storage capability either. Love Cricket, hate the phone. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product We have entered the age of the all in one personal digital assistant and the Samsung Cricket solution reflects this monumental advance in technology. I have held off on cell phones for quite some time but in a time of need this was/is a life saver. There is no going back at this point. It is far too convenient for instant information on location. This device is well designed, simple to use, and powerful. I highly recommend the Cricket path for quality bang for the buck.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horrible Storage I bought this phone not even 2 weeks ago & I absolutely hate it. The phone does not have any storage space at all no matter how many apps you have it says low on storage. I had not downloaded any apps to my phone besides Facebook & moved it to my sd card & the phone still said low storage. The camera is absolutely terrible. The phone will freeze from time to time. The display is wonderful. That's about all i can say good about this phone. Overall this phone is absolutely horrible. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I have had this phone almost a month and definitely am disappointed with it from the moment I turned it on it said it had not enough memory to even make an update that was required so then I went out and purchased a SD card for it instill it will not save to the memory card says there is not enough internal storage because the card does not support it but yet the card was for the phone and it is also very slow overall highly dissatisfied with this phone I thought I made an upgrade but got worse than what I had

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cricket has excellent service and products I was tired of my wife's high phone bill. I added a line and brought her to Cricket. Her phone is refurbished, but works great. I wish I had a new phone, as my ZTE is not working well, but cannot afford it right now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No space I love the phone. The colors are crisp and bright and I really like samsung. The problem is it came so loaded full of stuff I can't remove that I had very little space to put my own apps on there. So I bought an SD Card and come to find out that samsung or cricket or whom ever has removed the ability to change the option in settings so I can download apps directly to the new SD Card. I'm not sure if this is a ploy to get me to buy a more expensive phone or what. Not happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Storage Regret buying this model, there's no storage. You can't take more than a half dozen pictures and have more than a few apps.
