Tired of Getting Those Surprise Phone Bills from Your Phone Company, Get One of These.

Pros: Excellent sound and pictures and no monthly bills.

Cons: None at the present time

The Bottom Line: I highly recommend this phone to anybody that is tired of paying those hidden charges to the phone companies.

Have you ever gotten tired of paying those high cell phone bills, or gotten mad at your phone company, because they slipped in an extra charge? Were you ever surprised by your phone company when you made a change to your service contract, and come to find out that you had to start your contract all over again? My wife and I used to be in the same predicament with our phone company. But for the most part, we have learned that every time you hit that little green send button that you are being charged minutes. Unless you are using your phone after a certain hour at night or before a certain hour in the morning you are going to be charged extra airtime. We get tired of being charged extra for everything and all of the surprises that came along with it. So we ended up canceling our contract, because it was easier for us to cancel our contract than to wait the two years out.

Instead of signing a new two-year agreement with somebody we went with a prepaid phone. We have found this to be much simpler then the other phone services that we have had. It is pretty basic and simple to understand, a phone that we saw regularly sells for $200 at the store. But since we are purchasing a Samsung SGH-t619 from T-Mobile on the Internet it is only going to cost us $50. For some reason they give you a big break on the price by purchasing through the, and for only $100 plus tax, they gave us a 1000 minute phone card and one year’s worth of service. That comes out to approximately $8.50 a month and we also get the satisfaction of knowing that there are going to be no surprise charges and no monthly bills.

This is a flip phone, and it is approximately 4 inches long by 2 inches wide and approximately a half an inch thick. It only weighs 2.8 ounces and has an internal and external display. The battery is an LI-ION and will allow you to talk up to four hours on a fully charged battery it will also last up to eight days on standby time. When you open up your phone, you will notice that it has all the usual Alphanumeric keys, a navigation key, a left and a right soft key, power on/off and menu exit key, headset jack, volume key, send key, cancel/clear key, special function keys, and a microphone. At the very bottom of your phone is where you plug the battery in to charge it, and at the top when you open it up you will see the earpiece.

Features and Accessories
Along with your usual phone business will be able to use this camera to take pictures, still and moving. This is also equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology so that you will be able to use it with your new car. This phone is very user friendly, and you can use the menu button to access all of the features and options of this phone. In addition to all of this you also have the capability of using multimedia. This phone also has the additional feature to have some fun and applications and these features provide you to be able to go to a file manager, games, camera, alarms, calendar, calculator, world time, unit conversion, timer, and a stopwatch. When you purchase this phone there is only a few items that you will receive with the phone and those include a battery, charger, and a hands-free headset. There are additional accessories that you can purchase by going to their website and that is, www.samsungmobileusa.com. These accessories include a car power charger, Bluetooth headset, travel charger, lithium Ion battery, hands-free headset, and a leather pouch. You also have the feature of text messaging, and T-zones enabled, and a speakerphone. In addition to this you will get voice dialing, photo caller ID, and vibrating alert.

Since we have gotten this phone we have enjoyed it immensely. It is very easy to navigate through all the menus and submenus, just by scrolling across an up-and-down with the menu key. You will be able to check any notes that you have made to yourself, any calls incoming or outgoing and even missed calls, T-zones, also you have voice recognition and an organizer. You can navigate through your phone book and all of your phone settings these include display, sound, Bluetooth, network services, even security is a very welcome sight on this phone. You have also have the ability to go online and instant message somebody, or you can go to Yahoo, or MSN messenger. My wife and I are not the most savviest when it comes to being able to use a computer or doing all of that fancy stuff that the kids do on the phone nowadays, but we know enough to get by.

Extra Fun
One of the extra nice things about this phone is if you were in a doctor's waiting room or if you are basically waiting for somebody in the car, you are able to do some extra stuff with this phone. This will help you pass the time away. You can navigate your way through the files and goes through the sounds and images, videos and music and memory status. Just to keep yourself busy you can step in to the games department or even play music with this phone. With this phone you have a nice music player and the ability to get MegaTones and certain wallpapers, plus this has hi-fi ringers and games.

If you like to take pictures you will love this phone, because it has a 1.3 megapixel camera built right in it. My wife has taken several pictures of my grandkids and some wild animals that she has seen, for a camera this does a very good job. It does pretty doggone good. After taking these pictures, you can download them to your computer, and it looks as if you are taking a picture from a regular camera.

This camera has a pretty good warranty. There is one year on the phone, batteries, and phone accessories, and only 90 days on the leather case and pouch in a holster. This warranty is not transferable if you get rid of the phone it is only for the original purchaser.

Overall Conclusion
We have had this phone for around six months now, and we are enjoying it a lot. We have not had to use the warranty yet, and it is very easy to navigate through all of the compartments in this phone. The sound is excellent, and the camera takes excellent pictures. We are enjoying the fact that we do not have a phone bill and there will be no surprises every month that we use this. We have dropped this phone a couple of times, and it has withstood the impact of hitting the ground. We have had no trouble with any dropped calls, or being in places that we could not receive them. So, if you are tired of receiving those extravagant bills each month do yourself a favor and get one of these phones from T-Mobile.


Amount Paid (US$): $50
