    Your article is wrong. I paid $130 for the phone, and that was on sale. The original price was around $160.

    Didn’t work for me. I got a signature bugs unavailable after the second testing number that came up. I downloaded the Kies and it says it doesn’t support the phone. I am pretty sure I downloaded the driver cause by hooking my phone to the computer via usb cable. If the bug is worked out, please let me know!
