i like no GPS feature. why have someone track u wherever u go?

like real buttons on this unit vs. drawn membrane one.

i love this EZ flip phn vs. the 'smartphn' which is
hard to use with too many menus/sub-menus/sub-sub-sub
menus trying 2 find what u want 2 do and find that u don't want 2b there etc.

T139 gripes:

1. not enough memory to store text out/in messages.
need 2 delete some B4 usage

2. due to above, should be able to upload the
messages to PC

3. starting text, it defaults to T9 English, which
is some weird automatic group of abbreviation i
don't know about. it should default to plain
a, b, c stupid samsung designer!

4. similar bad choice of default when comes to
search n' dial your friend. the menu has 'add
contact' 1st so u need to cursor down B4 u can
get to the existing name list - now how often
do u need to add names once u've entered a bunch
after u've purchased this phn? stupid sam desingner!

wtf?!
I wanted simple info on getting a charging cable to fit USB/car connection. I wished to know if the phone charger connection is MicroUSB or other. There is no info online, anywhere. WHY?

Cheap phone you get what you pay for, I got it brand new for $14.99 after a rebate coupon. Not bad sound quality and other functions, bluetooth works. The biggest caveat which effects the phone on a whole is the signal strength, it's terrible and I had several dropped calls due to it. Indoors the phone loses signal strength easily, even outdoors it struggles to get 2 bars. I would not recommend this phone and have owned other Samsungs in the past that worked better, will probably avoid Samsung phones in the future.

Used it for few days. Its a OK phone, ear piece volume
is less, cannot hear well if u r at bus stop. speaker phone is better. Nice non-slip rubber key pad. Flip design needs some improvement. Good front display with date, day & time. Signal strength indicator keep varying all times even if you do not move [from 5 to 2 levels suddenly]. Talk time is abt 4hrs only.

Pros : Good basic phone, non-slip Rubber keypad. good battery. Good speaker phone.
Cons : Low ear piece volume. only 300 entries.

The bluetooth does not work. It does not have any visibility, therefore, no other bluetooth cannot pick it up.

It's a fine basic phone. Reception is no worse than a Motorola RAZR.
