AT&T has announced that the Samsung SGH-a257 Magnet, a compact and affordable messaging device that it launched in March, is now available. Users will find that sending text messages, instant messages and e-mail will be a breeze when using the device's full-QWERTY keyboard.

Magnet users can access online content with MEdia Net browsing and view it on the messanger's 2.2-inch TFT (176 x 220 pixels) with 64k colors. Users can chat with friends using AOL, Windows Live and Yahoo! Messenger and will also have access to their personal e-mail accounts with those services.

Users can snap pictures with the Magnet's VGA camera and use hands-free devices with Bluetooth support. The Magnet's 800mAh lithium ion battery boasts up to 5 hours of talk time and 250 hours of standby.

The Samsung SGH-a257 Magnet is available now online and in retail stores for $19.99 with a two-year agreement and mail-in rebate.

Can you send and recieve pictures through text on this phone? Does it have optional vibrate settings? Like 1 vibrate, 2, or 3? Or is it just one simple vibrate? And my last question is, can you set up this phone with Telus? Reply back. Thanks.
