Summary: I love Sansumg. This phone is a small, but very good, I can move home from one place to another and the signal always arrives well. Again'll buy Sansumg and seller for good service. I recommend.
The Samsung T229 is dependable and durable through its lifetime
9 September 2012
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 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. The flip top of the phone...
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.
Poor antenna, hard for others to hear, difficult features.

Excerpt: I have never managed to have as many bars for reception as other T-Mobile users. The text message function does not allow the user to change the default from predictive as far as I can tell after pouring over the manual and trying everything with the phone. The phone claims to have picture texting capabilities even without having a camera, however I have always had T-Mobile's website catch anything sent to the phone and no picture messages will successfully transmit from...
Excerpt: The samsung t229 is essientially a good basic camera phone. It does not have video (but I find that for those I know that have cell phones with video, they very rarely use it anyway, so for me it is a waste.) It does have speaker phone which works well in close range. The organizer seems a bit overly complicated and lacks a feature to move or copy events if you put them on the wrong date.
