The Samsung SPH-A660 is a clamshell phone released in early 2004 primarily on Sprint in the US, and on Bell in Canada.

The phone predominantly came in silver with a black Samsung badge on the front, although variants with a blue, green, pink and orange Samsung badge were also released with Bell Mobility in the Canadian market, known officially as the "SPH-A660 colour". A limited red badge edition with the Team Canada Olympics logo was also released in Canada to commemorate Bell's sponsorship of Team Canada during the 2004 Summer Olympics.
