Summary: I had purchased this because my last phone was a gravity 2 and although I am not in love with it, it does the two main things I need it to do. This phone seems to have a very poor battery and there is a lot of echoing feedback when I talk on it. So, as stated before, I was not in love with my first gravity two, but after looking at a lot of expensive over the top phones that are out now, this seemed to be the more logical choice for me.
Summary: The phone does not have as many features as my old flip phone. The font on the time is to small and stuck in the upper right corner, which is a big problem. I cannot design my own home screen moving items i use most often to the front screen. The seller was great, I received the item in record time and in perfect condition.
Summary: I've had my t469 for exactly 2 years now (purchased in Spring 2010). I was a t-mobile (US) customer, and I used this phone in the US (primarily) but I also traveled with it extensively to the UK & Europe. The multi-band ability to use CDMA and GSM networks was crucial. Was it reliable? Yes. Does it do everything well? No. - Call capability: call drops were very infrequent (this was based on travel and coverage). Call quality was only OK.
Summary: Review: The phone is ok. It does what a phone should do and the slide out keyboard is OK. Some phones have very hard keys and some do not. The camera is only 2.1 mp so it is not good and does not have flash so the picture quality is not good. It does have a slot for a microSD card which is nice for putting ring tones and picture on the phone. Overall, I would not recommend getting the phone from Costco but it is not that bad of a phone for not being a smartphone.
