Phone features are awesome. This phone is covered through AT&T,which is horrible. Can't use phone in house and randomly freezes. Like Samsung R451C with Verizon coverage.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2010Horrible, the features are ok but the service is the worst. I had net10 for this phone and it ... more Same thing drop calls, some calls less than 1 or 2 min. drop, others 15 or 20 min. drop...never finished 1 call.
i am having lots of dropped calls..do not recommend it. some calls r dropped in less than 2 min. others 15 min. have had it for 2 weeks. i have not finished 1 phone call. i am so sorry, i should have stayed with at&t, i do not like straight talk. not sure if its provider or phone..can anyone help..called straight talk techs. not helping!
Horrible, the features are ok but the service is the worst. I had net10 for this phone and it was the worst i ever had.
Anonymous, 15 Jul 2010I love the t401g i have one and its very reliable. But i have one question about, mine keeps t... moremy phone keeps on turning off i cant keep it on for more then five minutes!!!!!!!
what do i do????
i can't live without my phone
I cannot wait until I get my new phone in the mail! Uuughh! Charlie Brown screams... My $400 phone and $70 per month is just making me mad since the phone has been breaking down since day one. Now I'm switching services completely!
And can you believe that (at least all of this is in my personal situation Sept 2010) it is run on Verizon lines?! That sounds way-cool as I've always heard that they have had the best coverage than anyone does. And I think their parent company is the largest in the world.
However, I've heard bad things about the customer service with StraightTalk.com but with everything else looking as good as it is, I can't help it. For only $30 per month and the new phone includes one month of included service too! All for only $141 even includes tax and shipping here to Hawaii is a great deal I must say.
There is no WiFI, but I can live without it since the service I am using includes unlimited internet access.
Unfortunately, it looks as though I will have to purchase an $11+t/s cord for USB connection to my PC as it is a proprietary cord connection for the USB. That sucks. I hate that. Everyone should use the standard USB connections that have already been established and accepted by everyone. Proprietary stuff sucks big.
Much smaller screen than what I had, and it is on its own proprietary operating system so there is no possible way of doing anything like installing Google Earch or any application that I could for my previous Windows Mobile Pro 6.0 based version of phones. And oh, no touch-screen either. That really sucks. It must be a lot slower too I bet. Overall however, a much smarter decision as I won't have to worry about anything, no big deal if I lose it or break it. Less worry means me being much happier. And that's what life is all about.
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2010i have a similar phone and now the phone will not turn on when i press the button and hold it ... moreIf you are having problems with your phone and it is not starting up when it normally should, make sure you have performed a complete discharge of the electrical current that is running through the phone even when it is off. Take the battery out of the phone. Hold down the power button for a couple of seconds which will try to drain any remaining electrical static that is still being held in the phone's electrical system. After at least 10 seconds have gone by, re-install the battery and the cover. Then try to start the phone as you normally would. You may also want to inspect the battery contacts, never touching any copper with your fingers at all, but you can always use a pencil eraser to clean battery terminals and contacts and use special care if bending anything, of which I must disclose by saying never ever bend anything as it will void any and all warranty's I'm sure.
So I hope that this helps, this is a true statement for almost everything that it could possibly apply to, if that makes sense.
I am wanting a phone so I can browse the internet. How well does the internet run on this phone?
How does this service work? Am I charged by the minute for surfing the net?

me, 28 Jul 2010I cant find a cell phone cover anywhere for this phone tell me a website to find a cover 4 iti have looked from web to mall stores for a hard case too! no luck :( although, they do make leather cases for this phone.....(look on ebay)
A wonderful phone!!! 5 stars!i would recomend it to everyone!
pros:good camera,easy to press buttons,nice sound,good price for quality,looong battery,and more....
cons:hard to find a case for this phone,alt. button is annoying,at first for me a text was 2 cents more than it needed to be until we had to call costumer service from a land line.
net ten has great coverage like Verizon and even covers where Altel does not....
If you consider getting this phone, it is a no brainer for texters and a great deal is ebay.
Good luck with your phone browsing!
