mbilitatu, 15 Oct 2007Has ANYONE successfully used SMS messaging with the V191? The manual describes how to do ... moreYeah i like the phone's durability that's for sure. It survived a month in 4 feet of snow and the melt completely unscathed but can't recieve text messages and it's only good for calls. It kinda stinks technology wise.
I bought this for $100 in J&Rs NYC spring/2009, because it was the only quadband in stock. It is the most utterly basic phone, which is what I wanted. Unfortunately, the brain-dead idiots who made it cannot cleanly implement even the utterly basic spec that it has. It stinks. The motorola phone that I bought in 1996 had a better operator interface. What is difficult about call, hangup, number-find etc.? Anyway time to embrace complexity and buy an android.

Dropped from the stairs
IT IS A SUPER PHONE!!!

DO NOT depend on technology

I have a v191 and bought it in Phoenix,
the manual is in Spanish. Does anyone
know where I can get a manual in English?
this phone is very good for day to day use.very strong my phone many times and still working.
I have had this phone since it came out in 2006. It is the best basic phone you can ask for. one charge last a week, so i need to charge it only on the weekends. SMS is easy and call quality is very good. small and light and fits easy in your pocket. The best thing is the price as it is dirt cheap.
i would like to download some free music to my phone can i wit out the cd
Has ANYONE successfully used SMS messaging with the V191?
The manual describes how to do it, but on my phone, the menu option is not available. I have seen other reviews complain about text messaging not working. But, does it ever work? Does anyone have a V191 with working text messaging?
I love the phone, but text messaging would be very useful.
it had been almost a year since i got the phone i like it in all feature it is nice and easy to hold but i shifted my message that i got by sms to hot message and couldn't open it after that what shall i do since i couldn't get the manual
