Just to say its 2010, and my wife won't replace her T39 for anything newer. She does not even know about the Bluetooth, but I can use BT to backup the phone book using MyPhoneExplorer which is an excellent free program (donation solicited).
I bought the phone as reconditioned from Hong Kong on Ebay and it has been a great buy. My wife took it over when the aerial on her 768 fell off.
Main attractions are the battery life, retro looki and active flip.
Some asked for more info on mp3 player and camera. Several T39 accessories are described here:
Hoorayyyy!!! after searching more than 6 months, finally I got this stuff...
Even this is old phone, but I like it coz battery can stand until 4 days. Not like current phone that has to many function and high battery consumption.
For me this evergreen phone is a best phone ever.
I have a rose white edition and its so cool. i still love it much. Little good phone with a bluetooth!
Tolerants, 13 Jan 2010You can find it on EbayExcited that someone brought this phone alive again. I got one from HK Ebay, the phone looks cool and works fine.
An excellent phone and my very first before my big sister "borrowed" the phone and eventually destroyed it so I had to get a new one. It's 2010 the year of touchscreen phones, iphones and a windows 7 phone but all I want right now is to get my hands on one functional T39 and remember the good times when phones were phones.
This phone has got to be the undisputed champion of its time, and by far the best Ericsson phone so far! I have owned nearly the entire range of them, and this one is definitely the king. Same small size as the T28, Bluetooth, GPRS, browser, infrared, all frequency bands, vibrating ring, great audio and a fantastic battery time. As a former Ericsson employee, I couldn't wait forever to get an approval to purchase this one when it came out, so I forked out 4300 SEK ($600 USD) for it. I am disappointed in having sold it to an ex-girlfriend just because I replaced it for the golden T68 - foolish decision. Grant it, the T68 was real an amazing phone to have a color display, but the finishing was terrible, and the color peeled off all the time. I didn't like the joystick either. I REALLY miss my T39!

Tom, 08 Jan 2010will this handle an AT&T Sim card? (would be taking it out of an iphone to put in here..) thx!Yes, your sim will work from an iphone to the T39. Plus you will not have to be bothered by beta testing Apple products for their own profit. Can anyone say bluetooth connectivity ? ? ?

If you're not familiar with recovering from a potentially non-bootable system, I would recommend that you not try this.
skinnie, 03 Dec 2009do this phone support sms with more than 160 characters?Yes. You can turn long messages on/off in the settings.
