Should I get a Samsung Galaxy Pocket?


Jul 7, 2013
I live in Argentina. I can get an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Pocket for less than $100usd. Then the unlimited data plans are ~$35usd/month.

The reason why I thought to get it is because I'm starting a new job where I have to be available to answer the phone during a certain range of time 3-4 hours during the day. If I can get my Skype account on my phone, I can answer work calls on-the-go.

Is this a good idea? I heard there is no "3G" here, only EDGE and GRSP or something like that. I don't know exactly what that means.

What if the service is bad, or Skype doesn't work well over the network? This is a big concern. Would love your thoughts and feedback. Also, what is great about the phone? I've always had MAC products but never a smart phone, I actually bought an iPhone just to sell it; I would never use a $750 phone!!!

Thanks in advance for your feedback.
