cool lil thang but the tones suck !!
the wallpapers are limited im waiting for c139i howz that ?
My old phone was driving me crazy because it was hard to navigate and had too many options that I never used. This inexpensive little Moto C139 is super simple to use and works great!
This is a pretty nice phone, but wallpapers are a little sucky. It has good service and looks nice
Pros: The sound is great, as an audio AGC circuit keeps the background noise lower than your voice so the caller on the other end hears you better. Receive audio is clear, and undistorted at high volume.
Really LONG battery life. You can use this thing a week without charging, so on any road trip, you'll never need a clumsy car power cord.
Manual selection of low band 850 meg, or high band 1900 meg let you lock onto the best towers in your area. This prevents the phone from dropping calls as it would in the automatic mode switching from high to low band. Of course you can set it to automatically switch if you want it to.
Rubber side grip keeps it in your hand and not on the floor.
Cons: Very few other features. No speakerphone. No camera. No gps readout. No internet browser.
Color display is useless unless you keep turning on the backlight. Who needs color anyway, when all there is to see is numbers. Wallpaper is a waste as it only makes it harder to see the display.
No external antenna, which would have provided better reception in low signal areas between towers.
Bottom line: It's a good phone for using to make calls, which is what a phone is really supposed to do anyway. It does this well, and it does it for longer per battery charge than any phone I have ever seen.
I think this phone is perfect for someone who doesn't want all the bells and whistles. My phone sits in its case in my pursue the majority of the time, so this is a perfect little phone for me. I knew what I was getting when I researched and read the package, so I didn't expect anymore than what I paid for. People have reported problems with resetting of due date and minutes with the TracFone version, but so far I have not had any problems (knock on wood). Overall, so far so good for what I use it for.
this is a great phone but it just don't have the options that everyone else have. i feel bored using this device. sorry
Hi, i bought this phone about 3 months ago and so far it reset itself 2 times on it´s own... everytime i call the phone company they say i must done something wrong and reset the features but i´ve been using mobiles about 6 years ago and i know exactly what to press or not, what´s more i don´t even use the phone! i want to know if anyone else experienced this? It just resets itself and all the ringtones and screen savers i got are reset too, the text msg all is gone! please tell me i´m not the only one! Thank you!
The funny thing that I have discovered in this simple phone is that it looks morden with good colour, But it doesn't give derivery alert when you send text messege.
This makes me bored with the phone as some of my friends keeps on blaming me when I promise to send them text sms.
It doesn't show whether the msg has gone or not, and no derivery note.
Is there anyone know about this.
we cannot expect too much in this type of mobiles.its a gud at lower price comparing to other telecomm services.
I went to look on my TracFone users group and some people said to take it out and put it back in a few times. Make sure it's in correctly. Someone said try turning the phone on and off a few times. I don't know why it tells you that, I put mine in and had no problems, make sure it's pushed in all the way and you hear it click. Hope this helps :).
Ok, got the phone today with Tracfone, I put the sim card in place, after charging the phone and turned it on it said insert sim. OK, I am no dummy, tech support said to snap the card in place, even with thier help the sim card will not stay in place, any help??
does anyone who has this phone know the battery life(exactly),and can u change the covers??thanks all.
i bought this phone the other day.and i have got to say that it is an excellent phone.for the price and all,you cannot beat the signal strength on it.you crazy ppl never did say nothing about the signal.that's the most important thing on a cell phone.no signal,no blabbering.i was with sprintpcs and had this phone that i bought from walmart.and the durn thing did not give good signal over where i live.i live out in the valley and didnt get good signal with the sprint phone.so if i wanted to talk on the sprint phone i would either have to go outside,or sit right next to a window.and sit there and not move.and that got very aggervating if you know what i mean.and i thought that sprint was being unfair and so i dropped sprint and went to cingular on the go account.and with much phones that i have had over here i can go all through my home with this little booger.it is cute and like that one fellow said it is durable,that is wild buddy,dropping it from 20 ft.?dang,thats cool.i havent had that kind of problem yet,though but pretty dang sure i will someday.but,i really love this phone.and if you want all that fancy ringtones,wallpapers,and all that jazz,than you need to look for another phone.this phone is the bomb!think about it folks,these cell phones are made for calling,not piddling around with.sheesh.a phone is suppose to call your loved ones,friends,etc.if you wanna play little baby games,get you a freaking gameboy and put a sock in it!!!!but moto,thanks for an awsome phone.you will have my blessings with this little phone of yours.keep up the good work,moto!!!!!
DARK WITCH )O(
for the ones who have the moto c139, can u tell me how did u format it, how many times, how much time per format, and how long is the battery lasting afterwards. 10x
Just tried the Crostel.com site that someone recommended for ringtones and it worked for me. I have a Motorola C139 used through TracFone. The ringtone came as a text message so be aware that you will lose minutes by opening it. But it was pretty simple to save it to my phone.
Just wondering does the screen on your C139's go black after about 20 seconds, and then light up when you push a button? Just want to make sure this is normal. Thanks.
what do you expect from a basic phone? if you want all that other stuff get a different phone. this little guy is great for what you pay for. if you're a simple person who just needs it for the phone and texting, then it's a great phone. quit complaining about what it doesn't have. you bought it you knew what you were getting, live with it.
