Ability to use phone

Reviewed on Saturday February 5, 2011 by , Vernon
I bought this phone for my husband who is phone/computer dumnb. I am astute at these things, and even have trouble trying to figure things out on it without a manual. Just to delete a picture takes too many different buttons. The texting is like trying to read another language backwards. This may be able to be thrown against a brick wall without breaking but it is useless for people that have no clue about cell phones

Media player sucks, ring tones limited

Media player from original phone as well as Rogers both horrible, no volume control while music is on, distorted audio.Equalizer-bad, no base boost . . . Quality is also bad. Compare to other phones this one is not the best. Over all just a regular phone with LIMITED ring tones functions.

bad batteries

I just wondering if any one else has had this phone. I'm on my second one and both of them only hold a charge for two or three hours. Rogers is a pain to deal with matter on hold for over an hour twice

Great Cell Phone ..........

The samsung SGH-A836 is a great phone. I work at the airport and I'm in all weather conditions and the SGH-A836 has not let me down. I had a RAZOR K1 before not a good outdoors phone. I'm not real good at navigating the phone features yet but I'm getting there. I would strongly recommend samsung SGH-A836 for someone who needs a resilient talking piece.
