Samsung SGH-T139 (gray, T-Mobile)

 

Samsung's new SGH-T139 for T-Mobile is just what you'd expect it to be. As a VGA camera phone with a standard flip design, it offers basic features and little style. Yet, since that's really the whole point, we're not going to complain. Comfortable...

The Samsung SGH-T139 has an easy-to-use design, decent call quality, and functional features like Bluetooth

The Samsung SGH-T139's external display doesn't show us much, and there's no video recording

The Samsung SGH-T139 doesn't promise much, but it serves its purpose as a low-end phone for making calls.

Phone Review: The Samsung T139

 

The Samsung T139 phone review.

Consumer review by:

"A fine backup phone for a low price"

 

I bought this to use while my T-Mobile

Decent call quality, reasonably fast texting, camera adequate for taking wallpaper shots. Decent sound.

None off the top - very basic phone Would prefer a generic USB connection for charging, but since my wife has a Samsung Tracfone with the same connector, this is not an issue for me. Could be for other users, so I will mention it.

"A nasty experience."

 

I purchased this Samsung T139 phone from Wal-Mart for $30 with a $10 pay-as-you-go prepaid card for the sole purpose of getting stock alerts from my broker via tmomail.com.

Long battery life, keyboard lights up, camera is OK, can receive e-mails sent as text messages through phonenumber@tmomail.com

Recycled phone number gets endless spam calls right from day one, limited number blocking capacity, limited reception range, confusing menu, terrible website and even more terrible customer service.

Consumer review by:

"Awful, awful, AWFUL!!!!!!"

 

I am going to every site I can to review this phone. Truly AWFUL.

The camera works, blocks calls.

Slow to send texts, slow to receive texts, call quality is HORRENDOUS, and the internet....doesn't go to many sites (keeps giving "lack of adequate memory" messages), and what is with the website block????? What am I, 12? Taking a hammer to it.

"Great basic cellphone with no frills!"

 

This is the perfect phone for anyone who is sick of trying to "keep up with the Joneses" and always have the latest cell phone out there. I would also recommend it for the elderly or disabled cell phones user because of the simplicity of it's design....

Basic simple design

Not many ringers to choose from

Stylish, yet basic.

 

Not the most glamorous, not the cheapest POS out there. Samsung created this phone for the low-end mobile phone user market. It can text, it can call, and it can browse the web (Facebook, MySpace, what have you). It's not a stellar EVO 4G, but it gets...

Call quality is nice. The phone's overall design is perfect for the basic user

Pressing OK doesn't bring up the menu from the home screen. Just a habit of mine, I guess. Ringtones could be better

"Great compact and easy to use."

 

I love this phone because it does a lot of things great. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a no frills phone.

Takes great pictures and has bluetooth capability. Perfect for texting and picture messaging. Has a call blocking feature that is awesome.

No email support. Does not support data transfer.
