I have to say to start off, that I don't have good luck with cell phones (period). So, last time I broke a phone, or it broke I should say, I went to friends to see if anyone had any extras I could borrow until I could get another deal at the store (discount for renewing a contract). Well, my friend had a samsung katalyst that she for some reason or another decided to put into storage (she wanted one of the touch screen phones she said--but the katalyst worked). So she let me buy, for thirty bucks, her used katalyst (used only about a year). I've had so much good luck with this phone! I must say, it has sooo many scratches on it from being dropped and the slide part works great, slides better than other slider phones I've tried. And it just keeps on working-like the energizer bunny! Camera works great too. Its been a good 2+years now. I've lost track. But that is ALOT for a cell phone in my mind. Anyway, I love the functionality and the ease of use. I'd buy this again for sure!
