Don't buy this Phone!

Posted on: July 7th, 2011 by Dawn Bjarnson

The good: I have a phoneThe bad: I can't use my phone the way I want!Summary: This phone freezes all the time! They will not replace it with something different and when they check it they say there is nothing wrong with it! T-Mobile also tells me there is no one else with this problem! Maybe they should read the reviews! Don't buy it!

Gravity is a huge disappointment

Posted on: August 14th, 2009 by Brenden Kruger

The good: Amazing speaker for music and speaker phone, visually appealing, low cost, easy to navigate menus, easy to change settings, battery life is low but charge time is very fast, expandable and hotswapable memory with micro SDThe bad: Keyboard too small and flat, numerical keypad unresponsive and hard to push at times, various internal and functional problems(read summary), battery life is awful(read in a comment they've fixed that, can't confirm), receives poor service from provider, no standard 3.5 mm headphone jack or usb dongle. Music player is set up so you can only listen to 50 song playlists at a time and cannot run music in background.Summary: At first this phone was a nice replacement from the sad excuse of a sidekick known as the iD. For the first few days this phone was so much better then my iD. The keyboard is a little hard to adjust to, especially because of the size difference compared to my old sidekick. This was about the only complaint I had for the first day or two. Not too long after using this phone the low battery life became more obvious. I am always texting and this was one thing the phone's battery couldn't handle. A two or three page text ran a full battery down two bars and picture messages can sometimes take a few minutes to fully send due to poor service, this has eaten up three bars from a full battery. This problem is made a little better because of a short charging rate and the last bar on the battery seems to hold longer then the first four. Another thing I noticed is that over the next few months of use more and more functional problems would pop up while using the phone. Examples of these problems include double typing letters with one keystroke, space bar unresponsive, numerical pad very unresponsive, screen freezes after slide and displays both the portrait and landscape display at the same time, random shut down, dropped calls even with good reception, other line not hearing me during phone calls, no alert for calls, and more recently the contact name "mom" was displayed for any call and text I received. The last problem only occurred for a few hours. Some of the problems haven't happened in a while like the display freezing and random shut down. Some happen all the time like dropped calls, numerical pad being unresponsive, space bar being unresponsive, and one key stroke double typing letters. Another problem with the phone is that it's casing scratches easy. I've only dropped this phone once from a height of two feet and the phone had many small hacks and scratches on the edge of the phone also the battery cover gets small thin scratches very easy, like from buttons near the outside of jean pockets. One thing I have noticed with quite a few Samsung phone's is that they don't receive reception well from the wireless provider. This results in messages not sending, picture messages rarely working, and many dropped calls. Lastly, one thing that really bugged me that could have improved the battery life slightly is that the full qwerty still illuminates if the phone is closed and you push a button on the front. This bothered me because if both keypads are lit up for an extensive amount of time this could contribute to the poor battery life and the full qwerty has no purpose for being lit when you can't even see it. The only pros are listed in pros section. Who would I recommend this phone to? First time full qwerty users who are looking for an inexpensive phone.

Its a OK phone

Posted on: March 28th, 2009 by Aaron Mrozek

The good: Great messaging phone-nice keyboard-easy user interfaceThe bad: -bad battery life(can be fixed however)-cant make pictures full size wallpaper-battery icon isnt always trueSummary: Well, to start out with! with the other user reviews, they all said that the battery life is bad, that is very true, however if you call T-Mobile and tell them that your battery isnt lasting less then day they should send you a new battery! after that (maybe once or twice) the phone should hold a charge of at least 5-7 days! it really depends on how much good recption (Ex: all bars all the time=long battery life or always searching for a signal=3-4 days of battery life! Other then that there isnt real any major problem! This is a great gift for a teenager because they just live and love to text all the time!

Samsung Gravity T459 Review

Posted on: February 25th, 2009 by baseballbeast1523 anoynmous

The good: Roomy QWERTY keyboard1.3 MP camera with photo framesNice colorDedicated messaging buttonRaised number buttonsThe bad: Not the greatest battery lifeYour own pictures do not fill up screen for wallpaperBulkyVery basic menuEntry level phoneSummary: Overall, the Samsung Gravity T459 is a pretty good phone. The keyboard fells very sturdy and is very roomy as compared to the Samsung Rant. The color combinations are nice ubt it is still a very basic phone. With T-Mobilenot many phones with a full QWERTY keyboard that are reasonably priced. When it comes to setting your own pictures as your wallpaper, the rotating screen makes it almost impossible to cover the entire screen which is kind pf a disappointment. Overall I think that this is a pretty good phone.

Great phone overall!!

Posted on: February 6th, 2009 by Max Cordova

The good: Very user friendly, inexpensive, great quality.The bad: Battery is the worst on any phone I've ever had!!Summary: Except for the really crummy battery, I love the phone so far. While not quite a smart phone, it is able to do a lot, especially for the price. It is extremely user friendly, and has a lot of features.

Good but not great

Posted on: December 20th, 2008 by Kevin P

The good: -Easy simple interface-Great QWERTY keyboard and regular keypadThe bad: -battery life is horrible!-the fade in incoming call ringer that cant be changed-No usb port to connect to computerSummary: Its an alright phone. Im not too impressed. The only thigns i can really complain about is the battery and the absence of a usb port to connect to the computer. The battery life is really bad. Nowhere close to the 12 days they claim. 12 hours is more like it (if you're lucky)

Samsung Gravity

Posted on: November 26th, 2008 by Jairus Crabb

The good: Qwerty keyboard,Large screen,Self Portrait,Nice bubble like buttons,Dedicated message button,The bad: A bit large, not as pocket friendlySummary: The Samsung gravity is a very nice phone. With its wide display, Qwerty keyboard, and nice bubble like buttons. It is very much like the Samsung Rant and the LG Rumor, both is size and quality.
