Excerpt: I loved this phone and it was durable. I've tossed and tossed this phone and not once has she broken. However the washer and ocean can kill a phone, the washer the phone survived, then i went into the ocean like a year later, forgot it was in my pocket and ruined it.
Excerpt: I got this phone for FREE back in 2003, and I still use it today. The great thing about this phone is that it is a PHONE FIRST! This is so important. There are so many of these phones lately that cannot hold a call worth anything or the battery runs down within an hour.
Excerpt: Very nice phone which lacks many "fun" features, but makes up with it in so many more places. It has great reception and a great earpiece...which is what a phone is about. Plus a major point for this phone is its vivid color display...very bright and enjoyable.
Excerpt: I've been shopping online for a decent phone to use with my wireless service, and this phone was the most durable, easy-to-read, with the numbers on the number keypad separate (I don't like the phone with the numbers on the keypad sharing the same button), and very nice looking with a sharp color...
Excerpt: I give it a 4.5 rating but might as well given it a perfect 5. My only complain is the size of the buttons. It rates with an "A" in battery life, ease of use, sound, etc. Exactly what you expect on an entry level GSM and then some.
Excerpt: This phone has a great color screen. Battery life is great. the ringers are LOUD and sound good! you can download ringers and pictures! there is an optional camera that you can get,but i havent tried that yet.
Excerpt: First I had Cingular, then changed to Verizon because they supposedly had "better" phones. Well, I had the Audiovox 8600 when I was with Verizon and I hated it due to both service and phone. I love this T226 because of reception, call quality, and user-friendliness. Great phone -- compact and light.
Excerpt: I do not own this phone but will be buying it soon. Why not right now you might ask? GSM coverage is not ready yet. For those of you who don't live in NYC or California and most of the Gulf Region this doesen't apply to you because your area is primarily GSM.
Excerpt: This phone is very good. Reception and sound quality are excellent. Ringers are ultra loud. Screen is ok for a phone of this price range. Very colorfull and customizable. Nice size and weight. Menu is very intuitive. Battery life is very good. Quality of the plastics are good and durable.
