Like Dazed and Carrabian Cruse I just bought this phone on 11-7-2007. I previously had the RAZR. The samsung T719 is the best phone I have ever had. With its ease of use or BlackBerry prestige. Its all the features of a BlackBerry but in a smaller, flip phone with a almost full qwerty keyboard(Hybrid). The camera on this phone is amazing. I would recommend this phone to ANYONE. Even strangers. I bought at a Third Party T-Mobile dealer. It is a GREAT phone. Less

The thing that impressed me the most about this phone is the blazing speed of the user interface. I'm used to waiting for things to happen on Finnish cells and Moto phones. Not on this one! From the time it starts up everything about this phone is fast. T-Zones loads immediately. I thought it might have been pre-loaded it came up so quickly. Speed is good but only if it accomplishes something. Ever have to browse through a phone book? This one will speed you through it. Changing settings, going from menu to menu, turning on the Bluetooth, cruising the Internet, whatever it is you need to do you will do it faster on the Samsung SGH-T719. At first glance the keyboard can be intimidating. It took about two minutes of playing with it to understand how it worked and why it is so superior to the usual, and pre World War Two, arrangement of letters and buttons. Maybe because I never learned to type and have always had to hunt for the letters that I did not see anything wrong with continuing as usual with this handset. About the keyboard, aside from the novel arrangement of the letters, if the QWERTY arrangement may be seen as novel, there is the feel of it. I'm not a big fan of the how this one felt. Sure, there is plenty of tactile feedback so you can tell if you've actually activated the key. I don't like the plastic feel. It reminded me of the controller of the Intellivision video game console of the 80s. The feel of it screamed "cheap". Now I'm sure that five years from now that keyboard will still be going strong and probably will still look fairly new, just like the Intellivision controller is still working. This isn't about the durability - this is about how it made me feel. Yes, this is about me! One part of the handset I really liked is probably the least frequently used feature by the general public. The SIM install and removal was a breeze. Most people put their SIM in the back of the phone and it sits there un... Less

The only thing that I even somewhat dislike about this phone is the qwerty keyboard, but once you get the hang of it, it's okay. Otherwise, I love this phone. I upgraded from the Samsung T629 (ugh, awful) and it's been very nice. Highly recommended.

I bought this phone with the ~$100 money back, it was the cheapest for T-mobile >$39 service. If what you need is just a phone and phone related features--not pda or mp3 stuff--it's a great one Pros: 1. Very handy Voice command dialing (especially when with bluetooth earphone) 2. Large display but not a clumsy looking like Motorola razors. 3. Camera can spin to facing you or facing the direction you are looking. You can take photo for yourself easily. (I don't use cellphone camera, but someone may.) Cons: Battery life sucks. You have charge at least twice a week if you don't use it. If you use it, charge every other day. Less

I've owned and loved three different Samsung clamshells so a Samsung clamshell combined with blackberry functionality seemed like a dream come true. Unfortunately I was sorely disappointed with the t719 and got rid of it a week later. Here's my summary. Note that I used it with my employer's Blackberry enterprise server for email and appointments and I receive upwards of 200 emails a day. I've never owned a Blackberry, but I hear that actual Blackberry products are more feature-rich than the t719. Perhaps some critical features were cut for enterprise users in favor of ease of use for casual users. Cons: - Text messages and email are intermingled in one view with no option that I could find to separate them. This was impractical for me since text messages generally have a higher priority than email and they weren't easy to find mixed with the email. - The text entry functionality is the worst I've ever used. The t719 seemed to be very bad at guessing what I wanted to type and there's no way to add new words to the dictionary. - White space isn't economized when reading email. There were big gaps of empty space which work fine in a traditional email reader, but are huge annoyance on a small screen. - Emails longer than a few hundred characters were impractical to read since I experienced big delays while the phone retrieved more email text between pages. Seems like it could retrieve more text in the background while you're reading rather than waiting for you to click "page down." - The calendar didn't sync wirelessly via the blackberry enterprise server. I had to plug the phone into my PC. - Won't run downloaded java apps that need network connectivity so I couldn't run the nifty gmail client that google offers. Not sure why Samsung disabled this. - The annoying camera click that you can't disable is a good second or two off from the actual capture of the picture. Cheesy. Pros: - I think Samsung's interface and menu's are the best and the prettiest. It's very easy to navigate options. Too bad there aren't enough of them. - The phone's camera flash doubles as a flashlight. This is pretty cool and extremely handy. - Samsung phones are always very durable and the t719 is no exception. In comparison, a couple of accidental drops for my Razr resulted in dust under the screen. I've never had any durability problems with a Samsung. Less

This phone is reasonably sized and not too thick for a flip-phone, which I wanted because my previous phone (choc bar) screen had got scratched and cloudy. Also I was fed up with dealing with external buttons getting pressed accidentally. I also wanted bluetooth (for the car) and a reasonably good still-shot camera (it does video too) with more than 1Mpixel, as video-only resolution cameras are really not very good quality. Unlike some phones, there is no external button to turn on its camera with the case closed - a really good thing. This phone seems to fit the bill, except because of all the extra functions, doing basic operations is somewhat more complex than I would like. My biggest problem with this phone is the decision to use a QWERTY keyboard. If a company gives a number like 1-800-XXXHELP, how do you readily translate the letters to numbers? When I use a QWERTY keyboard, my finger memory allows me to use it efficiently. This does NOT translate into correct finger memory when holding the phone in one hand and using one or two fingers with the other hand. It would be much easier to use the old-style keyboard in this case. I guess its the Blackberry influence ;^( Finally, if you use a bluetooth connection with your car for so-called hands-free operation, then when the car is started or the phone first switched on in the car, then the phone prompts you to confirm if you want to make a connection to the car. This is a real pain - you start driving and the phone starts to beep at you until you get it out of your pocket (not always easy when driving), flip it open and confirm. This may not be a safe thing to do while driving, but the alternative is to try to ignore the beeps, or to pull over and do the deed safely. Why can't they have a mode that just establishes a connection automatically for selected devices? Do other phones do this? Less

This phone reminds me of Samsung's 715 phone which was absolutely superior. There are a few upgrades from that phone though. The voice recognition feature is cool. You can say a certain command and the phone will take you to that screen or call a certain person for you. Haven't used it much, but nice to have if I want to. You can access corporate email or other email with its Blackberry feature. I bought the phone for that feature and then ended up not using it. Again, very handy to have. This phone can receive the myfaves promotion that T-Mobile is offering, but you don't get the five icons downloaded on your phone because this phone doesn't support that. Really not an issue for me, because it takes away from your ringtones (so I've been told) if you do choose myfaves. At first I didn't care for the text message t9 mode, but figured out how to maneuver it, it's a cinch now. The keyboard on this phone is the qwerty type, but not full qwerty, qwerty on the numbers. Still not bad, and keeps the size small while being highly functional. The front LCD shows a colorful display of a blue sky with green grass upon turning the phone on or shutting it down. The phone will dim after a few seconds of flipping the lid, but the time, date, and battery life remains. I also love the fact that if you've missed a call, the external LCD will tell you the last person that called and whether or not you have a voicemail. If more than one person has called and left messages when you open the phone, the screen will show you each person that called along with whether they left a message. Samsung has the best call records screen I've seen. It tells you the date and time someone called, as well as how many times that person has called you. I do miss the service light that blinked when you had a new text message or a new voicemail from the Samsung 715. Hey, overall, I would say this is the best phone T-Mo offers. I have very minor complaints and would purchase it again; however, I must admit it isn't the cheapest phone if you aren't a new customer. I had to pay 249.99 and extend the contract for 2 years, but I don't mind because the myfaves plan is the best deal going! Bottom line: I would highly recommend this phone! Less
