Excerpt: I believe that this is a wonderful phone. I really love the size of it and that’s the main reason why I decided to purchase it. I purchased it through T-Mobile about 2 years ago. This is a very basic and simple phone.
Summary: The Shipping was fast, I got what I was expecting. Bought these for a family trip we where having to the States. They came with 10 minutes... Worked just as advertised, and its easy to find the prepaid phone cards in Target and CVS. They where even cheaper than buying them at either stores too.
Summary: The Samsung T101G phone is so bad I finally threw it away and bought a different phone. Even at the loudest setting, the ring tone was so quiet that I could not hear it when it was inside my purse; I had to leave it on top of the table. As others have said, the manual stinks and I was never able to lock the keypad so various buttons got pushed when it was in my pocket. And worst of all for me, the speakerphone was "On" and I could not turn it off.
Excerpt: It's impossible to leave this phone on because they put the soft touch browser button sitting high above every other button on the phone. I was trying to use this in an emergency and I couldn't leave it on because every few minutes I'd hear this little beep pattern and take it out to look at it and sure enough, it would be saying it had just deducted from my account for the browser.
Summary: Like some of the others reviewing this phone, I had the same problem with the internet browser eating up my minutes. If this phone is slightly bumped while in your purse or pocket, it activates the internet. I called tracfone twice and also emailed them, and they told me to buy a case for the phone. I asked them if there was a way to deactivate the browser button and they said no. Don't buy this phone, there's plenty of better ones out there.
Summary: I got mine at Target for ten bucks and thought it was worth it. It is a durable phone. But whenever I'm working and it's in my pocket it either connects to the web accidentally because the browser button sticks out and before you realize it, you've burned up minutes on the web. And I BS you not, my phone somehow calls my local fire/emergency. This all happens when it's locked and in my pocket. WTH?
