all in all a good phone for 40$!!!

Pete(POLAND) - I got this phone because I wanted "just a phone" with no extras, light, small and with good battery. MY comments are as follows - I don't like it - the battery is very average - The phone is the worst in my life when it's in the far countryside. This phone has the worst signal ratio to all other brands I used before. The keyboard is absolutely awful - no way of decent typing - SMS typing is horror.
If you like this phone it simply means that you had no experience with good mobiles before.
I have just got this phone as part of a special deal from my operator - for close to nothing.
I must say, I knew what I was getting into... the dot pitch is a bit high, the resolution is just ok, there are only 4096 colours... but you know what? at this price it works just fine! Besides, the battery seems to be good to very good, there is a VERY good GPRS implementation, the WAP browser also works fine, and as a special treat there is also an EMAIL client included. Again, works just fine... These were honestly the main selling points.
Downsides? Sure, there are a few, but nothing that can make this a bad mobile phone!
Overall, I am happy with it and I really do think it's worth the asking price for someone who doesn't want to have every tech gadget.
Oh, and it DOES have 1 (ONE) MB of memory!
Nice phone.I had a T230 before and I can say it's faster than it - that's the main reason I gave my T230 away. Used to be a Nokia user but now prefer Sony.It's small & light and looks cool in black.
Bought it on the $129 Virgin Cereal Talker,so only cost me $19 coz I also got a $10 voucher with it :D can't go wrong if you're a light sms/talker like me.
Screen is small, but still fine-what do you expect for $19!!Also, you can use a data cable and FMA to download ringtones,themes, pics & games.Games aren't as good or easy to get as Java,but I'm sure you can find a few you like.
Speakerphone is a little scratchy but useable-N3200 is better.
Overall,i like it !!
I have just bought this mobile, it such an idiot mobile that even doesn't have calender and no date appears on display. These days even the cheapest mobile do have all this. Also to read unread messages if once the msg on display disappear to as to read now, one hase to explore up to inbox there is no short cut for this. I am so diappointed by this mobile, this was my first experienece with sony ericsson, before this i had siemens and nokia mobiles that are much better then this. Also it doesn't have any short cut keys to any menue.
I have just bought T290 and facing a fault. Ringing melodies are not rining. I have set volume in different modes and changed the melodies but failed to hear the ringing tone. Can anybody faced such problem.
hey im wundering how much they attatchable camera 4 the t290 is? n where ya get it from in aus? taaa
Michi, NOTHING is worth it with Tel$tra. 50c for 30sec? you gotta be kidding! Go the Virgin!! It's only $30 at the end of the day!
Cheap fone, but dirt cheap price...
Hi, I am bashir from Pakistan T290 just arrived here in pakistan, i get it. Its reception is good, tones are good, gprs is also fine, resolution is nice although it is 4096 colours, but i am not satisfactory with its battery timing, according to sony ericson standby mode it is 300 hours and talk time is 12 hours. I am not agreed with their opinion becz standby mode is only 70-80 hours which is not enough and talk time is not more than 1.30 or 2 hours at peak.
