The good: The Samsung SGH-A187 has an attractive design, a variety of e-mail and instant messaging options, and a 16GB microSD card slot.
The bad: The keys on the Samsung SGH-A187's keyboard occasionally stick, and the navigation toggle could be thicker.
The bottom line: The Samsung SGH-A187 has all the necessities of a text messaging phone. Although the occasional keyboard inconsistencies are frustrating, it's a solid choice for a good price.
A good solid phone, easy to use.

Pros: Easy to use, great quick text messaging shortcuts, good battery life, decent camera, easy to type, good build quality, good speaker.
Cons: Poor music player, no 3.5 mm audio jack, no video capture/playback, poor microphone quality when recording voice memos.

Summary: Overall I really like this phone. It's durable, very easy to use. You definitely shouldn't get this phone to replace an ipod/mp3 player because the music player is lacking and the playlists are very cumbersome to set up. Also, an adapter is needed as there is no headphone jack of any kind, only a mini-usb port. The keyboard works very well and is easy to type on. The camera is as good as I would expect with a phone and takes decent pictures. When reviewing your pictures, the phone limits your view to a very small window within the phone's screen, with no option to make full-screen. Because of this, it is necessary to send images to a computer or tablet to see any real level of detail in the pictures. This phone is great for texting with a very fast and well placed shortcut on the main menu. All in all, the phone is a really great phone if you aren't worried about working with too much multimedia.

Fairly happy with it but it has some drawbacks
by TexasPeg on August 1, 2011
Pros: Very good price, attractive, holds a charge longer than my previous phone.
Cons: Navigation toggle way too thin, often causing me to accidentally dial number when I'm trying to scroll thru recent calls. Wish I could rearrange the icons onscreen so that my Contact List would be centered as a default. Although I have small fingers, I fi

Summary: I wanted a Go Phone and this is what I bought. I've been generally content with it, but the keyboard in particular has been a frustration - the keys are very small and way too sensitive. I've sometimes wished that I had stuck with my flipphone just to keep the keys from being accidentally pressed.
Probably the best GoPhone out there on AT&T
by appleperson on July 25, 2011
Pros: Great keyboard, responsive d-pad, compact, CHEAP, many people mistake it for a BB, you don't have to take out the battery to get to the Micro SD card slot, (somewhat) threaded Text messaging, a lot of customation options.
Cons: the shift key is very odd, pressing it once will switch to numbers, pressing it again will make it capitalize the letter, lock button is small, no option to change the camera shutter key to a lock/unlock key, small battery, mediocre camera, fragile.

Summary: got this phone after my other stopped working because I didn't want to renew my contract. I like it and with an external hard case I have had people confuse it with a blackberry. I have been unable to add music and there is no FM radio. I can download ringtones and they sound good, + I also get alot of use outta my audio recorder. The buttons are just big enough for me to text without difficulty but the phone fits in smaller pockets
