Summary: I've had this phone for about two years, and i loved it for the longest time. Now I can't receive group messages (they just say downloading all the time). I have the same problem another reviewer had with sending texts and needing to power the phone on and off before sending. Also, I continually get the low internal phone storage space notification.
Pros: small size, easy to use
Cons: Horrid internal storage space, error messages when sending texts
Summary: I like this SAMSUNG SGH-T499. It provides many uses for me. I use it to keep my grandchildren happy watching YOUTUBE and although I don't have a paid service, the WIFI is all I need to use for tons of apps. Of course the older it gets, the worst the reviews. But I could not complain about how convenient its made my life. Just like anything that gets old, battery dies, and sometimes other weird things happen. It goes off now for no reason and re-boots by itself.
Summary: There is a lot to like about this phone. But there are two issues that bother me. 1. The screen size is a bit too small. 2. The main thing is the internal memory is way too small only 512mb. There are a lot of apps I would like to add but can't because I am always getting the message "memory is full". I tried moving some apps to the SD card...some could not be moved. Why I don't know.
Summary: The only big problem with this phone is how little internal memory it has. i thought the sd card that can go up to 32 g would make up for that but most apps don't allow sd card storage. i keep running into low memory warnings whenever there's an update. i also get incompatible with this device when i check out some apps. if you want a smartphone for alot of apps get one that's at least 8 g in internal memory. i wish i had.

Summary: From day one this phone has never worked. It will not stay on. Constantly having to take the battery out to see if we can get it working again. Sometimes the power will come back on most times no. I went and purchased a OEM battery to see if that was the problem and no help. (The battery was more than the phone was worth.) I Purchased this for emergency reasons and its useless. My fault for never thinking to return it. I've only had it since June of 2013.
Summary: good so far. It is easy to use. When texting it seems that the keyboard is too small; but it could be that the user is not used to texting. this was an entry level smartphone for someone that had a flip phone and texting was so hard. everything is good. Only thing; I experienced a long charging time and don't use it with internet yet.
