Excerpt: First of all, I must admit that I am not a technology geek. I chose the Samsung t249 because it looked nice, I liked how it fit in my pocket, and it because it was free. There are some good things about this phone. It is very easy to use. The menu is simple and easy to maneuver. It is sleek and relatively small. The battery seems to stay charged for a very long time. However, this phone also has some major flaws that make it incredibly frustrating to use.
