Poor choice

I have had this phone almost a year now at first i thought i was going to love the galaxy core prime i was wrong. It was ok for the first month or so until it started getting really hot and saying sims card not detected restart phone it did not do the phone no justices to restart it cause it did not fix it you did better takeing the battery out and sims card out. The phone got worse at the sims card not detected thing when i would get on youtube or i could not finshes any thing. It started doing the sims thing when i tryed to make phone calls. Not only that it started flashing when i tryed to push numbers to make a phone call. I understand its not walmarts fault the phone is like it is. By far worst phone i have ever had in my life. If i new what i new now i would have not bought it $99.00 its not worth the price.

I bought this phone on Wal-Mart web site and after I activated it and added a service plan of $45 it still will not activate.


The worst phone i have ever bought.

My husband purchased this phone for me at $99 in January when I was in the hospital. It was "touchy" at first- being very sensitive and going to things I did not want o do. I thought it was me but as time has gone by it has put icons on the phone without me doing anything. That was bad enough but then it started hanging up in the middle of calls. Now it dials people all by itself when it's sitting on the table. It also changes the date and time settings to weird time zones and does not always ring when calls or messages come in. It also reassigns numbers to names that do not belong to the number. The latest problem is the earpiece - I can barely hear the other party with the volume set to max. It no longer holds a charge and I have all apps turned off. I rely on my cell phone as it is May and I am still in a hospital bed and cannot get up and walk very far. You may think I'm losing it but I would love to send this phone to Walmart and Samsung to drive them up a tree.



I just got this phone three months ago and I'm already having problems with it! At first it started out taking forever to send my messages. that, or I'd get duplicates of what people would send me and it would take forever to receive them. It also started behaving really slow and glitching out a little. Finally, when my service ran out two days ago, my phone was okay until yesterday and then it started saying 'searching for signal'. I added a phone card earlier ($45 plan) thinking the reason it said that was because my plan ran out and it would fix the issue, but it is still saying it!. this is ridiculous! I've only had this phone three months. Before anyone asks, yes I have dropped my phone a few times before, but in the past two weeks or so I haven't. I don't think that would be what is causing the issue right niw.... I'd like to please find out how to fix my problem. that, or get a new phone that I can transfer my number and service onto. thank you for your time


Amazing Phone for the price.

I got the Galaxy Core Prime for my wife on her B-Day (upgrade). She is very particular and tech savvy. She loves it (for the price on Straighttalk). The HiDef screen is superb, sound is great, fine volume and speaker phone, the Voice recognition for calling or looking something up on the 'Net is incredible. The 4.5 inch screen fits well in her tiny hands (don't think a 5.5 inch screen would work for her). She loves the LED Flash, Ambient Light Sensor, Proximity Sensors on the face to prevent Chin-Dialing, the talking Navigator, the 64GB capacity for SD external memory, 22 hour talk time (dependent on programs running). The phone allows her to run multiple apps &/or multiple pages to run on the I-net at one time (will use battery resources). Battery charges FAST. Phone is very thin and light with a 'slim-fit' case. I liked it so well I am going to upgrade to the same phone this evening, but probably won't be able to review it on here again.
