"Good size and screen, nice color, everthing else sucks!"
25 April 2013
Pros: The phone has decent size, slightly raised buttons, fits my hand well and flips open easily, nice blue color, call quality is decent, ring-and-vibrate mode.
Cons: Poor battery life for a basic phone, shuts itself off randomly (***??), sometimes gives no bars of service until the phone is powercycled (again, ***??), not really customizable, as other's have mentioned),
Summary: so glad I went back to the flip phone, modern tech makes my life harder. This phone bought me back to ease and simple! I was wondering why everyone is always looking at heir phones???....... the new tech makes it longer to make even a phone call ugh!
Summary: It works 10 times better than my Mom's old phone from T-mobile. Ya think they could've offered me this one originally, but no, they acted like jack-asses in treating that cheap phone as a "good" phone! Ridiculous!
Summary: i like the unit , very simple divice , highly Blockier and less streamlined than the Samsung Contour, the T259 flip phone is still portable. Surfaces are a glossy, midnight-blue plastic of the smudge-prone variety. The phone is also mostly comfortable to hold--the one exception being the flip-up face. Its two squared edges clash with the rest of the phone's rounded corners and lines, and make the T259 feel unfinished.
A good quality example of what seems to be a dying breed.

Summary: I rate this as a flip phone, not in comparison to "smart" phones. It is what it is, it works great, and gets the job done. It's compact, feels solid, and appears to be well made. Compared to an LG GS170 for instance this one is slightly bigger and heavier but seems to be a better product all around.
Summary: I bought this phone as an upgrade to my old T139, which had bad connectivity and no way to transfer files to my computer. I was thrilled to find that it works even in my basement. Since I can afford to pay for only basic phone service, I wish that I could disable all internet functions, but I know of no phone that will do that. Also, I wish I could customize sounds other than the ringtones. Otherwise, I'm very happy with the features.
