I bought 2 of these phones w/ Net10 service. One for me, and one for my wife. Within 1 month, they have **both** reset themselves back to factory defaults, losing all airtime. It took a few days to get my replacement the 1st time, and I'm going through the same thing again. I think I'm finding out the Nokia is a better choice. If my replacements crap out on me, I'll just have to find new phones.
this phone is very reasonable ,comparing to the 3000.00 phones that breaks with one fall. got one for my husband whose always loosing his phone. also plan to purchase two for my children ,as soon as possible. are they still avaliable right now? never mind the stupid comments some people make they always want to eat their cake and still have it.
I like this phone, not all the bells and whistles. Who needs all that stuff, remember it is only a phone. lol
pros: 1 free with current subscriber
cons: 1 it will not remote start my car
2 it wont open my garage doors
3 it wont change the station on my satellite receiver
4 it wont store 2 hours of video...
all kidding aside great little phone with no flip to break.
This is just a basic phone and it doesn't have any special features. My original cingular phone broke and didn't want to pay a lot for another phone. It was purchased as a go phone but I inserted my own sim card and works very well. Good phone and at a very good price.
i bought this phone as a speare phone when my v3x on repair,, cause so damm cheap..good battrey is great, ringtone is bad... but you got what you paid for right!!!!..., go moto u make the best phones...
I Found Only One Ringtone Site For This Phone crostel.com Some Are Ok And Some Are Not So Good If Anyone Finds Any More You Should Email Them To Me.
I live in Thailand and just purchased one of these as part of the Cingular pre-paid service. To answer your question, no it will not work with any other SIM card. On powering up the phone, it will ask you for "Subsidy Password", which of course Cingular does not tell you.
Also, the frequencies on the North American version of this phone are not very useful in Asia or Europe. As for me, I only needed the SIM card and the C139 is a fairly primitive phone. I am just going to pitch the C139 and use my spare Sony-Ericsson T630 when I am using the Cingular SIM card in the USA.
This phone has a keboard lock and a phone lock and the battary is great! I love this
phone! It has polyphonic ringtones to,I wish it had mp3 ringtones but overall is a great simple phone!
I got this phone yesterday for my b-day and
I think it's a wonderful phone! I mean it
doesn't have a camera but it does have polyphonic ringtones that you can download,from the cingular website,it has an
alarm clock. I don't like that it only has two wallpapers though.I have dropped it a couple of times but it still works perfect.
I recommend this phone to someone who doesn't want all that fancy stuff but wants a simple reliable phone.
This phone comes mainly as pre-paid in the US. Has anyone thrown a postpaid SIM in this phone and used it without any problems?? Does the minute bank software from the pre-paid get carried over??? Anyone who can answer, I would appreciate it. I would like it as a spare phone.
I just need a basic phone, but I'd like to know if you can download wallpapers for this one since so many people are complaining about them. Also, can you buy covers to put on it? You can email me the answers, or I have yahoo messenger firstname.lastname@example.org
I heard that this phone was compliable with windows messenger. Is this true because that is what I need? If anyone has the answer please email me.
Well thank goodness for a color phone I only want to answer. When you have choices, that's the difference.
Despite many of the previous comments you really canít beat this phone for the money. The battery life on this thing is without a doubt reason enough to have it. The high priced phones have a lot of new toys yes, but they canít compare to the rugged construction and long batter life of this phone. Iím a man. I need a dependable phone that can survive a few drops (mine survived a drop form more than 20 feet....try that with a high price RAZOR or any other flip phone), go 2 or 3 days without charging and, always work when I need it to. AND THATíS EXACTLY WHAT THIS PHONE DOES FOR ME. Leave the fancy ringtons and wallpapers to the ladies and children. And let the lazy folks who are too out of shape to hold the phone to their ear keep their bluetooth.
After all isnít the real purpose of a phone to send and receive calls? Why do you need all the silly little ringtones, wallpapers, and bluetooth do that one function? This little $30 phone does that just as well as any $300 RAZOR and will give you more talk time and more standby time because it doesnít have to give up power to all the little un-necessary and ultimately useless functions of the high priced phones. If you need to mindlessly stroke your ego buy a high priced toy....if you want a smartly priced highly dependable phone.....buy this one.
Its 65k color screen... thats good except that you can choose only three stupid wallpapers...
I bought this phone cuz I was told it was poliphonic (what a lie). it doesn't have anything!! not even a crappy alarm clock!! it looks nice... just in the outside. The contacts book supports like 100 contacts or less, it doesn't even have a crappy NOTES option... when you dial a number it just looks huge... it's hard to use... I don't know... it's just awful.
I sold it to an old lady like 2 weeks after I bought it and got myself a nice Alcatel ot-552a
I too bought this phone as a prepay just to toss the prepaid sim and put my regular sim in. My old phone crapped out on me and i just needed a cheap phone to last until i can get an upgrade without costing me an arm and a leg. Not too hot on the graphics or ringtones but over all seems to be a great phone.
The fone comes with (in my opinion) really dumb wallpapers Lily? Peace? Kick? come on
its just stupid...
I too thought this was a nice phone for the price. Until I woke up this morning and found the damn thing had reset itself back to the factory defaults. Since I bought this for use on a prepaid network, all my airtime was lost. I am currently waiting for a replacement that should be here within 3-5 working days. According to the customer service rep, this is a recurring problem with the phone.
