Does anyone have a SAMSUNG T309....? and if so, is it a good phone?

Question asked by tipsu21
I'm looking to find a new cell phone for my b/f. I want to find a good quality phone, but nothing too expensive since he's kind of careless with his phones in the past. He owns his own business and is on the phone alot can someone give me some feedback on the quality of the phone? Thanks

The good: The Samsung SGH-T309 has a compact design, a loud speakerphone, and solid sound quality.

The bad: The Samsung SGH-T309 suffers from low-resolution displays, tiny keys and controls, and poor battery life.

The bottom line: Despite having great call quality, the Samsung SGH-T309's ordinary flip phone design and poor battery life give it scant appeal for the consumer who wants more than a clear call.
This phone has been nothing but trouble. It worked fine for about three weeks, then it started having problems. I've had it now for about two months and it is to the point that it shuts down every other day. Now whenever I call someone I can hear them but they can't hear me. It says "sim card crash" about every three days and requires a hard reset. I've tested the sim card on another phone without problem.

T-mobile says I can send it in but since it's more than two weeks old I can only send it in for a refurbished one, not a new one.

I would not recommend this phone to anyone.
