Sorry to hear about that. The Prevail was my 1st smartphone too. They're damn good phones!

Lol. I bought my wife one for Christmas but she just couldn't get used to the keyboard so I've got it in there sitting on my desk. She loved the phone but hated the keyboard and she and I text all the time. I'm just gonna keep it as a spare because they're such awesome phones. If anything happens to my Marquee I'll be happy to use it until I can afford a new one.

I too hate the keyboard but tell her to try it again with SwiftKey or SwiftKey flow.

I tried to recover her from a hard brick. Good news is I can get her to download mode again. Bad news is after I odin stock she just sit at the Samsung boot screen. Hopefully on my days off I can breathe life back into her.

My first smartphone as well! I thought it was a neat toy at first. Then got irritated with the stock system bugs & limited storage. Then I rooted it & you would think I bought a brand new upgrade from it, aside from a couple bugs in the rom I am using, I LOVE it so much now! ^_^ LOVE my PREVAIL! <3

I got my 2nd Prevail off Ebay for under $40. It came with all kinds of goodies too. 2 cases, 3 batteries, wall charger, car charger, screen protectors, and of course the data cable and plug that originally came with the phone. The phone was in mint condition too. I think I ended up with a pretty darn good deal. When i say mint condition, I mean MINT! The phone didn't have a scratch on it. The girl I bought it from must have babied it.
