  • Excerpt: I have been very pleased with this Samsung T229.  It has everyting I look for in a cell phone.  There are lots of things on it that I haven't even used yet, as on any cell phone, but it supplies the basics I need in a phone in addition to camera usage and video usage.  One thing I recently learned from my TMobile service is that I have purchased a special connection for Internet service for only $10.00 month and can use it with my laptop to gain online service.

  • Excerpt: I have had this phone and one similar to it for about 8 or more years. In the past I have had other phones and as far as the durablity this one is much better, also easy to handle is perfect. It had not been a problem for me to keep up with, very easy to slide in my pocket or in my cell phone holder in my purse. I am a true fan of this phone because the battery has held ulp well as well as the wear and tear on my phone.

  • Excerpt: I own the black version, which blends well with the silver/grey interior and framework. I will get the negatives out of the way: the buttons are a little mushy (but bare-able), the camera does not have the best quality (but depends how much you need it or not), and the back of the phone is silver (which shows scratches easily if you dent it). That being aside, I think it has pretty decent sound receiving quality. More importantly, it seems to be very durable.

  • Excerpt: I received my Samsung SGH-t229 cell phone for free when I signed up for phone service from T-Mobile.  It is a flip phone and mine happens to be red but they had other colors.  This phone comes with alot of features.  You get a camera, speakerphone, can access the internet, games, and other types of applications like calculator and calendar.

This is the worst cell phone I have ever owned

  • Excerpt: I got this phone when my 2 year old son spilled orange juice all over my motorola Razor (which it loved by the way, great phone!!) and it died.  I picked this phone out online and ordered it.  It is not a sturdy phone by any means!  It is hard to use, and the screen is tiny, worst of all it is not durable at all.  I was outside walking slowly with my kiddos and I had put my phone in my shorts pocket.  It slipped out and fell to the ground.

  • Excerpt: The Samsung SGH-T229 cell phone has a good compact flip phone design that even seems to stand up to the ocasional bump or drop. I have had a few issues with the system itself. Ocassionally the screen lights fail to shut off on thier own which drasticly cuts down the battery life. This seems to happen when being disconected from the charger. The way around this is to open then close the flip top.

  • Excerpt: I love the style of this phone, screen, and buttons. The only down side is that the camera button is on the side of the phone. I have many black photos that where taken while my phone was in my pocket, bag, etc. Also the camera does not take good clear photos.

  • Excerpt: I am writing a review the phone in question: the * Samsung SGH t229 Cell Phone.  * I got it through t-mobile, my husband bought it.  It is actually an easy phone to learn, and reliable.  I wish it were a little slimmer, but you have web capability, a clear camera, simple designs that make the phone easy to navigate.  Even if you are computer illiterate, this phone is easy to comprehend, and i'm glad i have it.
