This is the fourth cellular phone I have purchased since I have been using cellular technology, and I think this is the best one so far.
I was very reluctant to buy another "flip"-style phone due to my great dis-satisfaction with the Motorola StarTach; I had two other "one-piece" phones (Nokia and Kyocera) which worked very well. The technician at Bell Mobility understood my concerns about a "flip", and explained the better design of the Samsung (plus their 15-day satisfaction warranty), so I gave it a try: 60 days later, I still have the phone!
The Samsung SPH-a660 is a powerful little phone, getting 1X reception where my old Kyocera would barely receive Analog reception. I particularly enjoy the colour display, the programable ringtones, and user-defined "Launch Pad" (arrow keys); almost everything be re-set to your preferences. The software (Phone Book, Calendar, Settings, and Alarms) on this phone is very easy to understand and use, and very user-definable.
Yes, it is true that the a660 is more expensive than other phones, but, as the saying goes: "you get what you pay for", and in this case, it is worth the simplicity and ease of use of the phone. I highly recommend it.
