Summary: According to our local T Mobile store, this is the best T Mobile phone for seniors. The keys are fairly large, the screen is bright, and the sound is better than a lot of low end phones. It is no longer available from T Mobile.It is offered on Amazon, but as of July 2014 was available on amazon and with free shipping for Prime members.
Summary: We have three of these. I use one and my wife uses another for basic phone service. The third one we keep in one place connected at all times by Bluetooth to a Panasonic telephone system for our house. T-Mobile has the best terms for this. If you pay enough down (usually I put up $100) the unspent amount carries over for a year and then to another year if you buy as little as $10 more before the first year is up. Calls are about 10₵ a minute.
Summary: This T139 Appears to be NSIB, If one wants simple but reliable cellular communications, this has proven its worth. My previous T139 was in service for almost four years before it was lost or stolen.
Summary: This is a no-frills workhorse of a phone -- the kind of thing you toss off the balcony to a friend who's forgotten it at your place. I happily downgraded from a smartphone to this thing, and I'm hesitant to shed this luddite telecommunications device. It represents more than a phone; it's a commitment to leading a certain kind of life. There's no doubt that this thing raises eyebrows, but, gosh, it works.
Summary: It replaced the same model that fell into a lake. Switching the SIM card and battery was all that it took to get back into business. Prompted to add old addresses, I erred in NOT doing so, but later, ALL appeared without my requesting that action.
