Boost Mobile finds Samsung Seek

Although is was pretty predictable now it is confirmed that Boost Mobile have now included the Samsung Seek to their CDMA line-up.

The Samsung Seek was launched a couple of weeks ago through the carrier Sprint, the Seek will start shipping from August 25th and will cost just $140 USD which includes free shipping.

Thanks to a recent article by Cosmin Vasile over at softpedia we can share with you some of the features you can look forward to with the Samsung Seek feature phone. It has a 2.6 inch QVGA touchscreen display and a 1.3 megapixel camera along with a full QWERTY keyboard.

It also features wireless web email access, a built in GPS receiver and a micro SD card slot for memory expansion up to 32GB. The Seek is also going to be available in Best Buy and RadioShack by the end of the month. It is expected to be seen on the shelves in Sprint stores during September.

    I currently have the Samsung Seek through Boost Mobile.
    This phone can be very confusing unless you are good with electronics. For someone who is good with electronics It takes a few hours to go through everything and understand the features. I love the full QWERTY and the touch screen is interesting (it takes a bit to get use to if you've never had a touch screen phone)
    The web seems to be fast as long as you have 2 or more bars of service. I really like that it has fast access to your Facebook and Myspace accounts. Over all the web on this phone really keeps you connected to all your internet and e-mail needs and friends and family. It has decent service where ever I go and I live in Michigan.
    The only issue I had with this phone was when I first switched it over from my old one. It seems that when you switch phones it takes up to 72hrs for all of the web, e-mail and text messaging to start working properly or at all, but after the 72hrs everything worked properly for me.
    This phone takes decent pictures, as good as you can ask from a cell phone. The touch slide feature for ending calls and turning on speakerphone and deleting got on my nerves, but once you start working with the phone you'll get the hang of it.
    When I first got the phone it was recommended to get the screen protector and that was a great idea because my screen protector is already scratched up. So screen protectors are a good investment and it comes with like 7 screen protectors that you cut to size your phone. A trick I did to cut the exact size is I took the plastic cover it comes with when you pull the phone out of the box and stuck it on the screen protector and traced it and cut it out, it worked perfect.
    Overall this phone was a good investment for me and I really enjoy it, I love boost mobile and will never sign another contract, I like the no contract $50 unlimited talk, text and web. No overages and if you take care of them, the phones last a long time.

      hi being that you've played with the samsung seek can you explain to me how i can get the music from my sd card to use for ringtones. all i see in the ringer section is the preringer that already comes with the phone.

    2. Alisha says:

      im thinking about getting this phone and i just read through many reviews and some said that you can not recieve pictures from other people, is that true?

      1. Beth says:

        Kroger has the pink one, but the problem is its not Boost Mobile and I doubt you can get it programmed to work w/Boost. Not sure, but it never hurts to ask @ Kroger. You could always get a plastic phone cover with an awesome design, that' s what I'm gonna do when I get mine. The pink is cute, but I thought I'll just buy a phone cover and it will be a cooler design than just a pink color 😉

  2. Hi everyone ok I have a question im coming from a blackberry tryna find another good phone but it has to have the app to play videos via youtube because I’ve already gotten use to it lol let me know if its a go or a no on the seek

    I got the Samsung Seek at Best Buy through Boost a few weeks ago. The phone is actually great with everything except it freezes sometimes with Opera Mini, the internet browser application i like to use with mobile web.(it enhances the mobile web's speed) The only cons about this phone is no video, so no youtube, (boo!), and the keyboard doesn't have its own row of numbers (boo!), the phone is not supported for apps YET, and you can't set personal Text tones for every contact like the Sanyo Incognito can. Other than that i love it! I want the Rant though because its 3G supposedly and supports video i wonder which is better?

    1. kari says:

      hey i have a rant and it sucks.its supposed to be 3g but everything is the same.it glitches and freezes on the regular and has problems connecting and dropping calls a lot.ive only had it for a month and deffinatley gonna get something else

      1. patricia says:

        u can go thru ur phone or the computer on myxer.com on the computer u can actually make the ringtone how u want it by customizing it 🙂

  4. sanyo says:

    that thing blows im rockin the incognito and it rocks who wants a 2 1/2 in touchscreen anyway.incognito plays youtube, fast web with opera mini, and its like a mini laptop

    1. Kayla says:

      I have one ! Its great although i cant watch youtube!! =( but yes it should have picture messaging , it dont have hot mail.. its got Aim, yahoo, and windows live messenger.
      You dont pay extra for internet if you have the 50$ unlimited plan! it works within 30 minutes when u activate it.

  6. jay says:

    does anybody no if theres any problems with how the phone works such as the speakers u can hear fine and the screen doesnt go blank or anything like that and like diana said can u receive picture text messages?????

  7. kasie says:

    U can text while on d ph. u can send & recieve pic. mess. go to myxer for ringtones. go to getjar for games & apps. it doesnt play videos which sucks cuz if i wudve known that i wudve left it @ d store. other than that its alright.. this wud b d perfect ph for ur little niece, nephew or child between the ages of 8-14 that really just wants a ph. cuz anybody older wants to watch videos, record videos or voice memos & not b bother w/ the stupid navigation sh*t thats not free & pops up when it wants. Other than that hip hip no way… oh yeah im 10 years young if it matter…

  8. Dont worry about it says:

    Im miqht get this phone and i REALLY could care less if u can see videos but can you send picture texts??!!!

    If not then ill just tell my mom to get me another phone as i am 13 yrs old.

    1. meeee! says:

      Me too. But they said earlier that it isn't available in pink for boost yet 🙁 Also ppl have said yes and no to the sending and recieveing of pix texts. That would decide it for me right there if I couldn't send and recieve those.

      1. daniboo says:

        You could get the one for sprint and ir would work on boost… they have a purple one but im not ure what company has it.. you can take any phone and switch to boost just call 1888-boost4u

  9. Bryttani says:

    so i am looking into this phone. all i want to know is that does it send/recieve pic messages, have good internet so i can access facebook, and what about messaging? like yahoo messanger?

  10. Marquetta says:

    Yes yuh can send && recieve picture messaqes. The default web browser that comes pre installed SUCKS. Use the phone to its full potential && download Opera Mini straiqht out of the box. It turns your phone into a mini laptop (ex: copy && pastinq, openinq more than one tab, sendinq the web to the backqround && savinq pixs from the web) -Hope this helps.!

  11. Marquetta says:

    Alot of ppl are also sayinq they cnt find thinqs saved on their memory card. Simply qo to Home>Settinqs>Memory Storaqe>Memory Card>Imaqes, My_Imaqes, My_Music (or whatever ur lookn 4) then jux select “options” && “move to phone” =P

  12. tonye d says:

    I hv this phone on boost luv it!! only mad cuz it doesnt hv video but thats cool. u can get free ringtones from myxer.com n funformobile.com. very easy to use once u gt the hang of it.

  13. alli says:

    ok im getting a phone and i saww this one i got a couple questins ifu would answer it can u recieve pic messenges and when u take a picture does it look ok and which one is better a messenger touch or a samsung seek plllz answer

  14. Emily says:

    Does anyone know if you can use instant messengers (yahoo, msn, aim) on the Samsung Seek? And if so, does it cost extra with Boost Mobile, or is it included in the $50 a month? Thanks!

  15. Danny14 says:

    i just got this phone 3 weeks ago i already like it alot u may not be able to watch videos but thats okay. the touch screen is awsome and the full keypad is great the web is slow unless u get the opra mini one the phone may not have apps YET but its coming as for being a phone on a pre paid carrier it works well. the phone is in pink as well and the seek is far BETTER than the initigo, and the rant. this phone was most likley targeted for the ages 12-20 it is a good smart phone with a nice touch screen

  16. Daisy says:
