Samsung Messager II SCH-R560 ( Cricket)


The Samsung Messager II has an easy-to-use design with a comfortable, tactile keyboard. Its features are functional, and its performance is satisfactory.

The Messager II's display offers few customization options. The camera lacks a flash and self-portrait mirror and we don't like the placement of the soft keys on the keyboard.

With definite advantages over its predecessor, the Samsung Messager II is a solid addition to MetroPCS and Cricket lineups.

It isn't flashy, but Samsung's R560 is a powerful desktop replacement at a bargain-basement price.

Samsung Messager II's Spangled Red Cover is fabulous! ”


The smooth plastic of the cover and the glittery stones inset around the screen opening tell people you are beautiful, fiery, and maybe a little high-maintenance... but that you are worth every penny! Another good thing about these types of covers is,...
