This unit is great!!!! I've had about 5 different samsung models and this is by far the best. It's compact, great screen, great battery life, very nice features (i.e., great wow factor), and most importantly great reception. I use this unlocked version on T-Mobiles network in NYC. I've had it for about a week now and I get reception in 95% of the places where I got reception on my old verizon A530. FYI, before purchasing this little number, I tried the S300, V205, and E715. I really liked the E715, but in the end I chose this one b/c no else had it and it has all the same features as the E715 (minus the flash).So....what are you waiting for already...go get one. BTW the best deals for phones are on Ebay.
