The Propel complements AT&T’s three other quick-messaging powerhouses: the Pantech Matrix C740, AT&T Quickfire and Pantech Slate C530.
All AT&T quick-messaging cell phones are compatible with the carrier’s messaging plans that offer 200, 1,500 and unlimited text, picture and video messaging for $5, $15 and $20 respectively.
Users of an AT&T FamilyTalk shared plan can purchase unlimited messaging for all lines for $30. See here for our full listing of all AT&T cell phone service plans.
While the Samsung Propel starts at the no-commitment price of $229.99, a two-year service contracts knocks it down to $79.99. A $50 mail-in rebate card lowers the price even further to $29.99.
While most cell phones today carry between 3 hours and 5 hours of rated talk time, the Samsung Propel sits at the top of that range with a 5-hour rated talk time. The Propel rates at up to 10 days of standby time when you’re not using your cell phone at all.
The Propel measures 3.85 inches by 2.33 inches by 0.58 of an inch. Considering it features a full keyboard and meaty battery, the handset weighs in at a notably light 3.79 ounces.
While there isn’t one feature in particular that stands out about the Samsung A767 Propel as a true market differentiator, its ultimate differentiation is in its total package and its ability to be a full-featured entertainment cell phone with a QWERTY keyboard priced under the $100 barrier.
