Samsung SGH-X497 Cellphones Review

When looking across the internet I was a little surprised when I was on Amazon.com and they did not have this phone. However they did have the batteries and the leather casings. Which to me seemed kind of wierd. But at any rate, here is the breakdown on the Samsung SGH-x497 phone.

The write up on the Samsung SGH-X497 from cnet.com is of a positive note and they write, "For this fall, cell phone manufacturers have gone back to basics to produce handsets that, well, simply make calls. One such cell phone is the Samsung SGH-X497 for Cingular Wireless. With this basic mobile, what you see is pretty much what you get. There's no integrated camera, advanced multimedia features, or Bluetooth hiding behind this compact flip phone. Instead, you get an affordable ($49.99) cell phone that makes quality calls, has a speakerphone, and comes with a host of messaging options."
