Summary: My husband had this phone, and after 4 years, the battery finally gave out. He said he wanted the exact same phone so he would not have to learn anything new. I actually found the exact same phone, and he is very happy with it. He doesn't do much texting, or that would probably be a problem. If you are looking for an easy to use flip phone to primarily make calls with, you will be very happy with this phone. Also, we have a family plan with T-Mobile, not prepaid.
Summary: I have had this phone for a very long time, probably 3 years already it it has served me well. The reason I am writing a review is to clarify somethings that other people have said. First, you cannot compare this phone with a more advanced phone; it's only a flip phone, nothing else.
The Samsung t349 is a quality cell phone at an inexpensive price
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Just got this new cell phone. And, because of the cell phone wars, most carriers are literally giving them away! You can now practically get any phone you would like to have. But, if your finances are limited, and , credit is not quite up to standards, you can do what I have done. Go on katcocleans.com, and visit their store. They offer cell phones at ridiculously low, low prices. I found a Samsung T349, with all the features..
Summary: I bought this mobile phone because it is cheap and has Bluetooth capability. I have had no problems with reliability in the two years that I have owned it. It never leaves my car unless I take it inside my house to charge, and it has no problems enduring the heat. I have only sent three or four text message with the phone, but it seemed to perform okay in that function. Most of my use does not involve actually touching/seeing the handset.
Summary: I have had one of these phones for 2 years. Takes photos, easy to text, programmable ring tones, good sound quality, sturdy. I have no complaints as I didn't expect a smart phone for the price.
Inexpensive basic flip phone--small and lightweight
6 May 2011
Summary: Pros: -Cheap-got at BB on sale for 20 -Good size keys for texting -Small, lightweight -Can sync contacts from T-mobile site Cons: -Old school graphics, fuzzy, and colors not bright -Can't connect to your PC (when will Samsung get it and start using USB connection?) -Camera is only 640x480. The biggest drawback of this phone is that you have to "send" any pictures you take because there is no ability to connect to your computer.
