“This phone was one of my favorite phone that I ever...”

Written on: 15/12/2010

This phone was one of my favorite phone that I ever owned. I still think of it that way now having owned an iPhone and a Droid. Now of course they are smartphones and can't really be compared. But the quality and durability of the Samsung SCH-8500 keeps me thinking fondly of it. It could also have something to do with the craptastic LG TP5200 that I had after it and broke easily. They replaced the model with the 5250 quickly. The SCH-8500 worked flawlessly and I would not hesitate to buy a… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/09/2003 by Joeloy (1 review written)

I've had my Samsung 8500 mobile phone since it came out. I have to admit that this is the most perfect phone I have ever seen except the slow modem. Now that A600 is out, I want to get that one only because I'm trying to access the Internet and 8500 does not work due to its slow modem. Everytime I went to the store to see if I can find something that can beat this phone I walked out with my 8500. All the features are useful, and as I said except its generation, it's a full package phone… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/09/2003 by helisoto (1 review written)

I've had my Samsung 8500 mobile phone for 3 years now. I use it heavily every day. Never had a problem. Not only is it a great phone, but I keep going to the store looking to see if I find a better phone with more features and so far I keep walking out with my old 8500. I own two batteries so one is always charging while the phone stays on 24/7. This phone is a work horse and by far the best phone I've ever had. It has yet to break. Don't leave home without it… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/03/2002 by Matt. (1 review written)

The Samsung 8500 flip phone is a lightweight mobile phone but has a sturdy construction. The phone is full featured with all the important and none of the useless features. Easy to read keys, easy access to menus and options and very easy setup make this phone extremely practical for my use. This is a very intuitive phone. I have read a couple of reviews regarding the dropping of calls with this phone. My service provider is Sprint and I have not experienced any extraordinary dropped calls… Read Full Review

I have owned the Samsung 8500 phone for about 1 1/2 years. My service is through Sprint. I have yet to drop a call, people hear me very clearly and the only time I took it in the Sprint store was to update. This has been the best phone I have owned. For the value and style is great. It is a shame that they discontinued this phone but I hear that an upgrade of this phone is coming soon… Read Full Review

This has NOTHING to do with the phone. The phone is a great phone. The reason for dropped calls is the service. Contact your service provider and they can attempt to booster your reseption. Hope this helps

Written on: 11/01/2002 by Joe. (1 review written)

I have service for my Samsung 8500 flip phone through Sprint and got this phone 2 days after it was introduced almost 2 years ago. I've had very little trouble with it except that the battery doesn't last more than a day and a half with average use, and it seems to have a hard time keeping a strong signal (lose calls now and then). My wife's Sanyo SCP 4500 gets better reception than my Samsung 8500. I like the compactness of the flip phone design, and the voice activated dialling feature is… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/09/2001 by Olivier. (1 review written)

This phone is very small, easy to handle, looks very nice. The display is very clear, with the aid of backlight and nicely legible font. The options are very easily accessible, with quite a few shortcuts provided. The great memory allows for several hundred name/phone# entries. Added bonuses are the web-browser capability and voice entry… Read Full Review

I agree with the review about the Samsung phone. My friend has a Samsung 3500 and I have a Qualcomm 2700 phone. At the same place his Samsung phone used to go out service once in a while, and my qualcomm was still connected. Is this a coincidence too?
Both of us had the Sprint PCS service… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/06/2001

The phone was most likely on home service only. This can happen if the terrain is rough or there is not a tower near by. I have the phone and there are some dead spots in the town that I am in. Otherwise it is a great phone!

Written on: 21/08/2001

hey!!!!! s-s-stupid with the nokia. the Samsung 8500 is a better phone as a whole. you tried one phone, there could have been a defect with the 8500 you tried, or when the phone was programmed the home sid could have been incorrect or most likely the prl was not updated to the local towers.
<br>so before you go passing judgement, think!
