delve and verizon = no email service

Posted on: August 6th, 2009 by Dolores Seitzinger

The good: Love the Delve when I had Alltel for the past 6 months. Lots of fun to use. Got email for 6 months both personal from comcast and a private work email until the switch to verizon. Verizon bought out Alltel. Love GPS, touch screen, weather, texting, etc.The bad: No email support with verizon wireless.Summary: Would love to know if any techie knows how to get the Delve email to work with verizon wireless? I have one and a half years on my contract left and I want my email to work.

Posted on: August 2nd, 2009 by Anonymous

The good: lots of cool stuff, great camera and videoThe bad: texting really sucks, freezes up Summary: I just got this phone 2 days ago and i hate it. All I really do is txt and it sucks its so hard to txt. T9 absolutley sucks its so hard to do and the letters are too small. Moving from a Razr where i cud xt faster then hell to the delve where it takes me 5 minutes for about 10 words is horrible.

Great camera

Posted on: July 31st, 2009 by Wendy Vaughn

The good: The camera and camcorder work wonderful.The bad: Doesn't get good reception.Summary: The volume of the ringtones is not very loud, I can't hear it in my pocket, and the reception is horrible. Don't try to talk in a metal building like Food Lion.

Another lover of the U.S. Cellular Samsung Delve...

Posted on: January 6th, 2009 by Anonymous

The good: 1. Responsive touch screen2. Full HTML browser built in3. Gestures and Widgets4. EASY to useThe bad: Auto Keyguard... I turned it OFF in the phone settings menuSummary: This is a review of the U.S. Cellular Samsung Delve (as Alltel doesn't sell phones in my area). First, the TouchWIZ interface is much more responsive than nearly every other touch interface I've used, excluding iPhone. In fact, before trying this model, I borrowed two other touch phones and tried them out. The first one, an iPhone, was alright, but I didn't want to change cell carriers and couldn't have a touch screen by itself. The second one, an LG, just didn't fit my needs- I clearly needed a larger screen, better control placement and more reliable speech recognition. Then I heard about Delve, and went to the store this morning to try it. The Delve has the best of both touch phones I tried in the past- it's got the 2 MP camera, responsive touch screen and gestures of the iPhone while also having the physical controls of the LG and a speech recognition system neither of them can match. Overall, the Delve makes a perfect addition to U.S. Cellular's lineup and I would definitely recommend the Delve to my friends and colleagues.

I love this phone!

Posted on: November 28th, 2008 by Igor Kuzmanoski

The good: 1.Responsive touch screen2.Qwerty keyboard3.Good reception4.Easy to use/learn5.Good bang for your buck6.Full html browserThe bad: 1.Battery life can run a little low when using browser2.Auto-lock can be a pain sometimesSummary: I really enjoy this phone and am glad i bought it. I have it for US Cellular, not Alltel, so the comparison might not be the same. Its got a great touchscreen with a cool widgets menu for nice customization. The browser runs great for a non-3G network. I load web pages very quickly. The on-screen qwerty keyboard looks small but its very intuitive and comfortable to use. The auto-lock is useful but it locks too quickly sometimes, which cant be changed but can be turned off. You hold the lock key longer to turn it off. Definitely not an Instinct or Omnia but a great choice for anyone who wants to get into the touchscreen fad. Overall its a great phone, especially with US Cellulars lack of nice phones. Go for it you wont be sorry.
