The Samsung SGH-T349 is a simple, good messaging phone

from CNET

While AT&T and Sprint have been dominant in the messaging phone space with phones like the Samsung Magnet and the LG Lotus, it isn't the only carrier that has regular phones with QWERTY keyboards. T-Mobile has also stepped in, with the Samsung Gravity late last year, and more recently with the Samsung SGH-T349. However, it doesn't have the traditional full QWERTY keyboard. In fact, it's the first messaging phone we've seen that has a 20-key keyboard similar to the BlackBerry Pearl's SureType keypad. We actually like it quite a bit, though we understand some people might not like the layout. Features are pretty simple, with a 1.3-megapixel camera, a music player, and Bluetooth, but don't expect 3G or GPS. The Samsung SGH-T349 is quite affordable at only $15 with a new two-year service agreement.

bad sounds, bad key broads, bad texting

from Amazon
I love all the Samsung that I had before, this one made me decided to get an expensive one even with a two years contract. My friends could not hear me on the phone, I could not use text at all since the keybroad is designed differently. If you want to waste money, go right ahead.

Texting is Horrible!

from Amazon
The phone itself is good, but the texting is horrible. My husband and I both have the same phone and both hate teh texting on it. The letters switch over, they don't put out the correct letter each time, etc. We will def. be getting new phones THE DAY our contract is done.

tin can talking

from Amazon
Do you enjoy climbing into a metal garbage can and putting the lid on it and then having a conversation with a friend? If so, you'll love this phone, because that's what it sounds like to both you and your friend.

I really like this phone. It is fast, very easy to use and to customize. The keypad is easy for texting, and easy to use with one hand. Call quality is EXCELLENT; sounds like a landline. Battery lasts two days. Web browser is good, e-mail is easy to read and manage, BUT you cannot send e-mail. I pay T-Mobile $9.99 a month for unlimited data along with my regular plan. I get traffic, news, mobile web, email, facebook. Connects to PC via USB cable, and can use it as a modem. I share calenders, contacts, appointments, music, and photos, and other files with my PC using Samsung PC Suite. Mp3 player and camera are lots of fun; has a photo editor and is easy to send MMS messages. Hot swappable micro SD card up to 8 gb, possibly more. I love bluetooth for sharing music, photos, contacts, and more with other phones. It supports other bluetooth hardware. It is very light, small, easy to pocket, and feels very, very good in your hand. I bought two more to share with my teenagers. Amazon carries different skins to customize them. Cannot give it 5 start because there isn't WI-FI, or 3G, and camera is only 1.3 mp, no video support, and it isn't a smartphone. But for less than $100, it gets the highest rating possible. I give it 4 stars because it is an affordable phone that works great for those who don't need a smart phone and don't want to pay alot for a data plan. Less

Unacceptable Bluetooth Performance

Samsung-t349 is a nice-looking phone. The product description and customer reviews have already covered many important topics, therefore I will focus on a few issues that I had no chance to learn about before I purchased the phone. It is very important for me to be able to connect a cell phone to a GPS device in my car via Bluetooth to talk hands free. My old cell phone (a cheap Motorola phone) was perfect in this respect. After pairing it once with my Garmin Nuvi 660, it connected automatically to the Garmin every time I turned the Garmin on. Unfortunately, Samsung-t349 cannot do this. Every time I turn on the Garmin I have to pull the phone out of my pocket and manually confirm that I want the phone to be connected to the Garmin. It defies the purpose of having a Bluetooth-enabled phone. Once the cell phone is out of my pocket I can just as well talk on the phone without a Bluetooth car kit. Moreover, when I don't bother to connect the phone to the Garmin for a short drive I cannot use the Garmin either. Why? Because the two devices try to connect unsuccessfully and the "Phone disconnected" message keeps popping up on the GPS device blocking the map completely. Also, the Samsung-t349 phone book doesn't sync with the Garmin phone book. Maybe I was spoiled by a cheap Bluetooth-enabled Motorola phone but I find the Samsung Bluetooth performance unacceptable. The Samsung technical support did not offer any solutions when I contacted them. Less

I've had this phone for two months and can attest to it's good reception, exceptional call quality, and awesome, text-friendly keypad. This phone is not only very reliable, but fun too, because the camera takes decent photos that are easily shared via MMS with voice memo. I also love the photo enhancements, cropping, framing, and creating and sending "postcards" with the photo shop that is already loaded on the camera. Of course you can use photos for wall paper, and slide shows, too! Besides using this as my only phone, the other features that I use the most are the ones that help me stay organized, informed, and on-time. There are several alarms, a timer, a fantastic calender with many scheduling options. I have my weekly volunteering scheduled to remind me for a whole year! I work the first weekend of the month, and I can schedule my calender to sound the alarm the rest of the year, or however long I want it to. I put all of my families appointments on it, including phone numbers so I can call if I'm running late! I set it for a reminder, of course. Contacts have more than enough info including picture ID, dedicated ringtone, group, birthday, email, and several phone numbers. I now have no excuse to forget birthdays! I use the dedicated e-mail button all the time to check email. The phone notifies me everytime I recieve an email message. I also have a quiet tone notification, too. The volume is variable for all tones and alarms. There are also three different tones to chose from. All day long I use the web-to-go to check my yahoo! mail account. It is pretty fast (EDGE) and I can read and manage my email, though I cannot read attachments. It is an abbreviated version. I check local weather, local news, CNN, and email all day. I even check maps and traffic. There is a Yahoo! web browser that you can use to browse the web. There are many sites to go to, but they are abbreviated versions of the real web site, but you get alot of info, and many are being added every day. You just have to do a search on the browser and then you can bookmark your favorite sites. It's that simple. I never play the games, but there are some already preloaded, and many to download. You can download music, too. I even loaded a Spanish language translator for $2.99. I use that at work because I work in a hospital in Central Florida and I need to speak Spanish! The mp3 player looks like it will hold about 100 songs, and it is easy to add a memory card on the side, not under the battery like some other phones. I guess the sound will be good because the audio on the phone calls sound so good. I really love this phone. It feels really good to hold, the keypad is very easy to use because the buttons are raised, well lighted, very resposive, and the partial qwerty keypad is fantastic for texting, making to-do lists, writing memos, or tasks to complete. I love to type on it, it is so fast! I bought this as a prepaid phone, but I use my regular t-mobile sim card in it. So I pay for my family plan with 5 faves, unlimited family texting, and $9.99 for unlimed web access. I highly recommend this phone for everyone, especially texters, or anyone who needs to stay organized, needs lots of reminders, or likes to show off photos of their kids! Less

Okay Samsung phone

from Amazon
This is a great phone for small hands and basic phone use. The keys are really small and I might get a better phone to trade this for. I didnt think this phone was okay for me. I like the sound and the quality of music, and basic of the how much does it have. I like to give it back and make into a bigger phone so I can type more. Thanks

Very good sound quality. Nice external sound controls. Cool looking phone. Takes a lot of time to get used to the letters. They are not the traditional, but set up like a keyboard. Must look at phone to hit select button--too small for casual use. Super battery life! Must purchase USB cable and sd card. Phone came with a $50 rebate. But must purchase unlimited texting at $15/month for two months. Thus the net rebate is only $20. I will probably exchange for the NOKIA 5310 music phone. It looks easier to use. Less
