Samsung SGH-T229 - red (T-Mobile) review: Samsung SGH-T229 - red (T-Mobile)


Samsung SGH-T229 - red (T-Mobile)

The Samsung SGH-T229 has satisfying call quality and a decent feature set that includes Bluetooth and a speakerphone.

The Samsung SGH-T229's displays and keypad are disappointing. Also, its camera does not record videos and photo quality was poor.

The Samsung SGH-T229 has unique design touches and pleasant call quality but it wouldn't be our first choice for a low-end T-Mobile camera phone.

Great simple phone to use


The Samsung SGH t229 is great phone for people who do not use cell phones as much like younger kids or elderly adults. My grandmother has this phone and loves the easy design of it and suits her needs for a cell phone perfectly.

good phone


Nice inexpensive phone. Had for 2 years, and it still works. I don't like that when you lock the keypad, the phone doesn't ring at all. I have kids, so locking the key pad would be nice. Really that is the only prolem I have with the phone.

Its an ok basic phone but I wouldn't recomend it.


The Samsung SGH-T229 cell phone has a good compact flip phone design that even seems to stand up to the ocasional bump or drop. I have had a few issues with the system itself. Ocassionally the screen lights fail to shut off on thier own which drasticly...
