The good: The Samsung SGH-T139 has an easy-to-use design, decent call quality, and functional features like Bluetooth.
The bad: The Samsung SGH-T139's external display doesn't show us much, and there's no video recording.
The bottom line: The Samsung SGH-T139 doesn't promise much, but it serves its purpose as a low-end phone for making calls.
Bluetooth never works, Alarms hit & Miss--3rd phone
by bbby914 on December 13, 2010
Pros: I can text several contacts at once
Cons: Bluetooth has never worked, and this is the 3rd phone. Alarm is skiddish at best, works at first, then starts working intermittently
Summary: Get a different phone, NOT an expensive phone. The more features, the more bugs you will encounter after 30 days use. I had the Samsung Gravity...2 of those, lasted ...
Summary: Get a different phone, NOT an expensive phone. The more features, the more bugs you will encounter after 30 days use. I had the Samsung Gravity...2 of those, lasted a month then all kinds of bugs in the texting, alarms, ringers. Bottom line: phones are phones and computer are computers, they dont work together for more than a month.
Conclusion: Buy your phone at Walmart, return it every 29 days before your return time runs out, or be stuck with a buggy phone!!
Basic but Excellent Phone

Pros: Good sound quality, sufficient talk and standby time, solid feel.
Cons: No video, only a few ring-tones available.
Summary: I have been using this phone for a few months with no problems. I like the solid feel to it and the sound quality is fine. I like having photo-ID ...
Summary: I have been using this phone for a few months with no problems. I like the solid feel to it and the sound quality is fine. I like having photo-ID and an acceptable VGA camera. Decent size phone book and the controls and menus are very easy to use. Great value for the money.
Better than what I had
by Chigal48 on October 27, 2010
Pros: The color quality of the icons. Larger keys, raised keyboard. Sturdy. The phonebook feature appears on the first screen.
Cons: The phone itself, so far I can find little to not like. But I've only had the phone one day. I have to get used to the menu selection location to the left side instead of placement as a middle button.
Summary: I've had the phone one day and can see it's a vast improvement over the NK 2720. The color quality of the letters and text is much improved. ...
Summary: I've had the phone one day and can see it's a vast improvement over the NK 2720. The color quality of the letters and text is much improved. Much bigger and clearer. The raised keys on the keyboard instead of the flat feeling is an improvement. The phone doesn't rock when you sit it down like the 2720 did. It feels sturdier than the 2720. It is much easier to find "MY ACCOUNT" with this phone. Before I had to go through several selections to find it (in settings). I only have limited use for a cell phone. I do not surf the web and download music and do more advanced features. So I am happy with a phone that has large clear text to read and good quality sound.
So far it has been a good phone. .

Pros: I like the buttons I don"t think the outside will wear off over time. You just have to get used to using it, after all it's just a basic phone. I like the background colors. The graphics are good.
Cons: It doesn't have a video camera and I wished I didn't have to turn the alarm on and off everyday. There no images to put on my background or wallpaper.
Totally unreliable piece of junk phone
by bfox60 on July 19, 2010
Pros: No pros - other than it was free when I signed on with T-Mobile. But even for a free phone, it should last longer than a month.
Cons: Long pauses between pressing send button & when it actually starts calling. Calls people on its own, powers off by itself. Has to be shut down & restarted often before it will make a call. Samsung failed miserably with this model.
Summary: 1st 2 phones (two sep lines) lasted about a month.Had to call T-Mo to get them replaced, as retailer wouldn't replace them. 1 lasted 3 days, the other ...
Summary: 1st 2 phones (two sep lines) lasted about a month.Had to call T-Mo to get them replaced, as retailer wouldn't replace them. 1 lasted 3 days, the other less than a day. Now waiting for T-Mo to send another set. This phone is not very user friendly, as it doesn't very often do what you want - like when you hit send to make a call, it just sits there, often making you shut it off & back on before it will work. Too many menu selections to get what you're looking for - have to go thru 3 menu selections just to get to your contact list. I would not recommend this phone to anyone, rather I would tell people to stay away from it.
Worst phone I've owned
by caribousenet on June 11, 2010
Pros: Nice look and feel.
Cons: This if the first phone (T-Mobile version) that has bluetooth file transfer crippled. I HATE how the buttons are not customizable the buttons and menus are on this phone! I never realized how good my cheap Nokias were before using this phone!
Summary: Crippled and not customizable, I don't like it!

Pros: Small size, simple software
Cons: Can only store 3 numbers per person, no space for addresses for contacts, poor reception, very limited features, obnoxious display

Summary: After my Blackberry Pearl 8100 was stolen, I bought a gently used Samsung SGH-139. I immediately noticed that I had no service in areas where my Blackberry had several bars. the display icons are large, unattractive, and obnoxious. Navigation is not intuitive or direct. Can't change main screen shortcuts. Instead of taking you directly to your contacts, "phonebook" "shortcut" takes you into the phonebook options menu. No way to connect the phone to a computer and memory is small.
Very disappointed - feel a bit deceived by Samsung
by Bedfordbiker on May 8, 2011
Pros: Cheap - $20 from W-M online
Seems ok as a basic phone
Like the flip style
Cons: As others have stated - cannot transfer pictures from phone without using the 'Net. This is not acceptable. I was going to purchase one for myself too (this one was for the wife) - never mind - I'lll stay with my seven year old model. I have seen a cab
Summary: If all you want to do is talk - then this is an OK phone. If you want to send pics, etc. - sure, with ten year old picture quality ...
Summary: If all you want to do is talk - then this is an OK phone. If you want to send pics, etc. - sure, with ten year old picture quality and having to use the 'Net, go ahead. I think Samsung should have made it clear in their information that you can't download pics via a cable. Glad I only paid $20 plus S&H. Still have the old phone - if this this goes, then the SIM card goes back in the seven (7) year old phone and I'm back in business. If you have any near vision problems, crank up the power of the glasses - the character display is horribly tiny and (near) impossible to read.
