Don't bother


Samsung should be ashamed of this rotten phone. Don't buy it, it's junk.


It's slow, sometimes doesn't work and I can't wait to take a hammer to it when I buy an iPhone. No more Samsung

learning how to use


I find the phone to be just great but I am still learning all the features. I use the online manual for such times and that is really helpful. I even showed my friend something that she hadn't done.
