Great little phone

The details are above, so without repeating those:

I found the color screen to be bright and very crisp. I agree with the other guy, the processor is fast. My wife downloaded some ringtones and had no problem navigating it to make it work.

All it took was one phone call to my cell phone to hear the difference over her last phone. This one is louder, clearer and has less background noise.

We found the best feature (for us) is that it DOESN"T have one of those annoying 'cradle chargers' that never work all that well in the first place. The x475 has a plug-in charger, so no more fooling with the phone to get it in the cradle at the exact angle to make it charge -- just a hair off and it would drain the battery! BUT, the x475 has this little rubber door on the bottom of the phone that you must open in order to plug in the charger. It doesn't come off completely, but instead hangs by another piece of rubber. This makes it virtually impossible to plug in the charger with only one hand, so if you have only one hand or require that one hand be free during the plugging-in of your phone then this may be a problem for you; otherwise it's a small annoyance. You could just tear it off to solve that whole ordeal.

Anyway, I highly recommend this phone, especially if you get it free, like we did.

Wiki

Get some serious style with the x475 from Samsung. True, this phone is billed as entry-level, but it has features like MMS messaging, instant messaging, and a vibrant, high-resolution color screen that put it a notch above other phones that are this affordable. With the x475, you'll even get wireless Web capabilities that will keep you in step with the latest mobile Internet technologies.

Inside the x475's sleek clamshell you'll find a large, 128 x 160 color display with support for 65,000 colors. The outside cover of the handset sports a supplementary 96 x 64 monochrome display that can display time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. Up and down buttons for volume control are placed on the left side, while most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad. There's also a standard jack to accept universal hands-free headsets.

Calling Features
The x475's phonebook can handle up to 1000 of your contacts, and you can store up to three numbers per entry, plus an email address. In addition to having a discreet vibrating alert, the X475 supports 40-chord polyphonic ringtones, which means you can really jazz up your incoming calls with cool tunes. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from T-Mobile's t-zones service. You can also assign icons ...
