Not so bad
This isn't a bad phone but lots of room for imporvement.
Can use your own songs as ringtones
Decent internal display considering the low resolution
Pretty good reception, but could definitely be better
Battery seems to last a decent amount of time(3-4 days between charges)
No lock for the outside buttons(The Camera button on the side is VERY easily activated when handling or opening the phone)
Earpiece volume is on the low side but should be fine in most quiet-moderately noisy environments.
Speakerphone is completely useless in all but a very quiet room.
Soft keys and Navigation keys cannot be programmed to users tastes.
Advanced voice dialing is very awkward and has a hard time understanding commands.
Menus are very dark and dull which makes using the phone in bright light extremely difficult.
This would be a nice phone for someone with a tight budget as Tmobile is now offering it for free.Read full review

Basic phone for the user that doesn't need features
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.

Heh this phone is even better than I expected. Does almost everything that another phone I have does and was less expensive. I think these used phones are great because unlike the new ones you really don't know the pros and cons yet. I have a new LG phone and I can't take it back and yet I am keeping it around as a second, but the Samsung phones are great - great features. I initially bought a Samsung phone because I had to send in my new LG phone because the No. 6 was not working all of a sudden (2 1/2 months old). They took so darn long to get a new one back to me that I just bought a couple from Ebay and I really like the features on the Samsung - all 4 from Ebay. I finally got my LG back the afternoon after I got my 2nd Samsung ebay phone. The Samsung is all lit up at night when you may have to use it in the dark and only the numbers are lit up on the LG, which I dislike. The Samsungs also let you scroll rapidly down your contact list and the LG has to be pressed for each contact - time consuming. I got on a site to check the features straight across of this new LG, and but because it is so new, they don't have anything much to say about it. I think when a phone has been out a while and it works so long, then you know you have a good deal. I'm never going to buy another phone brand new again as long as there is ebay and lots of Samsung phones available. I guess I have come to like this brand the best so far. I'm not one for a smart phone because all my phones are pay-as-you-go which is convenient for me as I have a land line as well and they are for the kids calling me when I'm not home to know when I'll be back as well as calling them when I'm out for some reason or other. I owned 2 Nokia phones and I don't like them much, then the LG, but with the 4 Samsung phones I've bought since December, I give them all an A rating!!! Yes, I've heard an occasional story about a Samsung that had a problem, but when you buy them off ebay they test them usually and you are getting something for a lot less money that has proven it ability to work. Thanks Ebay, you are my favorite place to shop besides the dollar stores.Read full review

used cell phone
I broke my old phone and the cell phone provider doesn't manufacture it anymore, so I decided to try to find a used one on Ebay.

Samsung SGH T439 from T-Mobile
Nice little phone.Love the music player.Has an micro sd card slot for storing more songs or pictures on.YAnd you WILL want to buy a micro memory card,IF you want ALOT more music on your phone,as i did.I have over 100 FULL songs on my phone,thanks to the use of a micro mini sd card.Battery lasts ok.And so far,i have been able to call from ANYWHERE,without losing signal.Don't like the outside finish,much,it attracts fingerprints.But overall,this IS a really nice phone,so nice,that i got a 2nd one,exactly the sameThis phone can't do EVERYTHING,but what phone does?So ALWAYS check out the phone BEFORE you buy it.
REVIEW UPDATE:I have NOW boughten a 3rd Samsung SGH T439 phone,this is how much i love THIS Phone!It can't do EVERYTHING,but it does ENOUGH for me.But always check it out before you buy ANY phone.Read full review
