Awful, awful, awful!!!!
Slow to send texts, slow to receive texts, call quality is horrendous, and the internet....doesn't go to many sites (keeps giving "lack of adequate memory" messages), and what is with the website block?? What am I, 12? Taking a hammer to it.
I expected more from Samsung
This phone is a decent if you are always outside. If you are inside, don't expect the best signal strength. It doesn't matter if I'm home, in a store, or at a friends house, the signal strength is 2 bars at most. I started researching this phone when I couldn't hear the person on the other line. T-Mobile stands behind their statement that there must be at least 3 bars of signal for good call quality. Sorry, but I don't want to sit outside all day talking on the phone.
Pros: Price, speaker, battery life, t9
Cons: Signal strength, call quality

Basic phone for the user that doesn't a phone much and just for emergencies or a teen starting with a phone
I would say this phone would be a teen/kid just starting with a phone. The t229 was a good phone, but the friends that had it experienced it shutting down and it had glitches where the front paint would chip and it wasn't even dropped, seriously one still had his in a case, took it off and it had marks, idk why, or if it was because of the hard case or what.
But this phone is tons better. It reduced all of the glitches of the previous model that i and my friends had. It's a much better purchase. You wont be disappointed at all in this phone.
Excellent phone for an excellent price!
This was a very nice phone that I recently bought. I paid $24.99 for it at our local best buy. So far, it has been very nice. When I compare the signal to my old phone, the samsung t429, it doesn't even compare. The samsung t429 has so much better signal and reception. The screen, is not great, but it works well because you can hardly see the pixel dots, but it is not that vivid. It also is rather small.
Since I got this phone it never went blank or froze for even a few seconds.
-Developing App Store
When I open up the web2go app, you can always get apps for this phone. They sadly, are not free.
This phone is big enough to fit in hands, but does not feel bulky or heavy.
For less than thirty bucks, I get a prepaid phone on t-mobile, a Sim card, and manuals. Even used cell phones are not that cheap.
T-mobile offers a service where they will upload your pictures (via picture message) to your online account. It is really helpful, because you only get charged for the picture message being sent. If you do not have picture messaging, it can be turned off.
This phone can record voice for fifteen minutes which is really helpful.
The screen is very small (128 x 160 at 1.75 inches) and is not really vivid. The outside screen is also low res, and not color.
If samsung had invested with a better camera, this phone would have been much better. The pictures are clear small, but not large.
I am aware that this phone does not have an mp3 player, but it really wold have made it nicer if it did.
-No video capture
-No signatures for the end of your texts
I bought this phone as a replacement to my Nokia that finally ran its course..Got it for 29.99 at Wal-Mart as a pre-paid...not upgrade eligible so I bought this and put my sim card in...I work for att but im still in contract with TMO, This phone is actually really good for a basic phone. The speaker isnt great and the camera is ok. But clarity is great and the batteey lasts for days if you properly charge it. Overall, its a really good phone.
Bought this phone as a replacement phone for my broken T-239 about 3 weeks ago. Got it through a T-Mobile retail store in San Bruno, Ca. I LOVE this phone. One reason is that it's compatible with all my current accessories including batteries and home and car chargers.
I love the speaker which is really loud for my use.
I paid $59.99 for it although I've since seen for $29.99 at best buy for prepaid.
I highly recommend this as a basic talk, text and web phone.
Hope this helps!
Great Phone Excellent Call Quality
Perfect entry level phone. Call quality is excellent very clear. For the price you cant beat it. Battery life is superb at a whopping 7 hours ! Design is above average and buttons seem to be ok.
Cons: Size it is rather small and can easily slip out of your hands.
Love Samsung Products
Love this Samsung SGH-T139! I have yet to come across a single problem with this phone. I was wondering if it is compatible with the Straight Talk prepaid plan? I really need to save some extra cash and switching to this plan would do just that. Its on the Verizon network too so that means amazing coverage as well. I hear it is the best prepaid service around and I need some feedback quick!
This phone is absolutely amazing!!!!
2. makes phone calls!!!
3. you can download TONS of apps!! (t-zones)
4. it has a camera!
5. you can text with it!
only one con, it is grey, I kind of wish it were in rainbow... or clear
I bought one here in MedellÃÂn, Colombia, but the Manual did not come with it. I need the Manual to handle it the best, where can I obtain one copy?
