    Bought this phone 8 days ago. Returned it yesterday because the battery wouldn’t its charge more than 2 hrs, even though I was not using it. Today, the new battery lasted 3 hours (on standby only).

    Do I need to rate this phone? Thumb down.

    I bought the SCH-R920 Galaxy Attain a few months ago. I dont kno if it is just my phone, but every now and then it blacks out. Not to mention that the music player app leaves much to be desired, for it does not play the songs to their full length.

    Well SCH-R920 that I bought about 7 months ago, keeps freezing, battery life very very low, no 200 talk hrs, Keeps saying memory low when I but a big sd card, Got rid alot of my apps. It says it has 1.23gb memory on phone but it keeps freezing because memory full. I keep it because can’t really afford another phone right now but when I get the chance out!.
