I like my Samsung Moment

    I acquired a Samsung Moment on eBay last year as I work part-time as a designated driver. I needed a better phone for getting messages, email dispatch as well as GPS.

    I got this phone for $23.00, in excellent condition! And when I took it to the local Sprint shop to switch the number from my old company flip-phone, the techs were impressed with my find!

    I really like the actual keyboard- as I've used the Huawei and LG Android phones before this one, and really don't like the touchscreen. Granted the Moment is an older Eclair device, (which I really wan't familiar with) I still prefer it's feel.

    What I love is the camera. Even though it's a 3.2 megapixel, it's relly nice and sharp; and the flash is neat. With the Flashlight app, it's ever better!


    There are 3 major things that I HATE about Androids!
    For some reason, "Airplane Mode" will turn ON and will refuse to turn OFF! It takes the removal of the battery and a hard restart; sometimes more than onces or twice.
    2: NUANCE
    When I plug in my wired headset (I cannot stand Bluetooth) it will switch on and takes forever to switch it off. It stinks on ice!
    This is a real pain in my butt! When this phone locks up, it takes anywhere from just a single "yank the battery, put it back in and it's fixed" to taking up to over 6 hours for the damn thing to turn back on!

    So, any and all help is appreciated as I need this phone. Not only did we lose our home in foreclosure in September, and have been evicted since we have yet to vacate the place (my wife is in a wheelchair and we can't find accessible homes) but I just lost my job; after 4 years unemployment I finally get a job- only to get fired after 4 months for a mishap due to faulty equipment. And this phone is my link to my part-time designated driver gig as well as a valid cell number.
