Ok here is an honest review, of the T401G.

I saw that Straight Talk had advertised that their new Pre-paid service has Unlimited Calls, TXT, and Data for US$45 for 30 days, I thought I had better check this one out.

The unlimited data was applealing, and was the best phone on offer from Straigh Talk. The R451C was $99 from Wal-Mart.

The phone is very neat 2' x 4.25' and 0.6' deep, fits very well in the pocket, the QWERTY keyboard buttons are a good size & are easy to type with. The Internet browser can only be used when the keyboard is slid out. The browsing is html & images with some Javascript, there is no flash or other imbedded objects.

This phone uses the GSM

The phone can be used in any US state or any US ZIP code, there are no roaming fees!

I recommend this phone highly for anyone who wants a basic internet connection without  download or calling limits.

just need a phone ,


hello how u doig ?


Only problem with this phone is it works on the AT&T network, versus some other Straight Talk phones which run on the superior Verizon Network (superior in my area anyway).


This review identifies this phone as "CDMA (No Sim card)", but I believe the "G" at the end of the model name (T401G) indicates that it is a GSM phone. Samsung's own website for this phone lists specs that include "GSM 800, 900, 1800, 1900".


Can this phone be unloced in order top use a carrier that uses verizon


i like dis fone


this phone sucks cause u can not set a ringtone that u want for text messages and can not send ringtones to peopel


I'm looking for a straight talk phone that has a camera and video recorder and uses Verizon towers. Straight Talk says the R335C but it does not have a recorder. Any suggestions??


The phone in question is a Motorola Backflip (MB300)


The review says the phone is GSM. It says it twice. In fact the second sentence is "This new GSM phone from Samsung has a great QWERTY keyboard."
