Straight Talk Samsung T404G Cell Phone Review

Rating: 

Average: 3 (19 votes)

The Samsung T404G is a very basic phone that looks a lot like the other QWERTY slide phones that have come out.

So once again we have a phone that isn't much of an upgrade on the previous T401G.

People that have this phone will tell you to steer clear of it. It's not worth wasting your time one.

Now before we write this phone off, this phone given its limits may be perfect for someone who is just after a GSM phone that does just his.

Check the specs, see for yourself and read the comments.

Straight Talk Samsung SGH-T404G Review

This added by Florida Girl:

I got this phone a couple of days ago and I disagree with the negative reviewer at the top of the page. The T404G is a really nice feature phone. 3g and 4g service is spotty in my area so why should I pay $$$ for a smartphone when this $60 T404G does everything I need at the moment? I would rather text than talk, so I love the slide out qwerty keyboard. The keyboard sounds can be turned off. I ordered the phone at tracfone with triple minutes for life and I transferred my old tracfone number and minutes to this phone. At amazon I bought an 8GB class 2 micro SD card, Samsung OEM car charger, Samsung data cable and Samsung stereo headset AAEP407SBE. I used the data cable to download some mp3's into my phone and played them just now and it sounds quite good. (on phone settings set USB to "data" to download, set to "modem" for headset). The 2MP camera is decent. (LOL I remember years ago paying $500 for the very first Canon digital camera and it was 2.1 MP). Today, I downloaded Opera Mini 4.3 directly from m.opera.com to my phone and I'm running that to surf the net. It automatically installed in the "games" folder. (At first, site will say that phone is not compatible, but if you click public download link it will give you opera mini 4.3 which works great). I am not an extremely heavy cell phone user, and this phone does all I want and more. In a couple of years, I'll upgrade to a smart phone when their price comes down and when my local network is upgraded.

Direct your questions to her, she knows alot about this phone :)

I think this phone is great for the people who only use it to text other straight talk customers

Why does this phone have no spot to put your head phones in? Can you by like somehting for your headphones? I mean if you can play music why not have headphone slot thingy? My moms phone is ALOT cheaper and it has a headphones hole?

Comment: 

I think that the phone is great and the answer to your question is that the phone has a place to put the head phones it's just that it has to be the size of the charger but if you look online you might see it

Comment: 

you can get an adapter for headphones from here for one is where I got mine http://www.accessorygeeks.com/oem-samsung-s20pin-3-5mm-headset-adapter-aaet503cbe.html but ya the SGH-T404G has a ton of quirks, samsung really really really needs to update the software and firmware on this peace it randomly kicks you offa internet {cash full, processor gets hot, random phone reboots, not saving on memory card when phone memory is full} and a lot of other things

Comment: 

Is there a way to turn off the annoying sound when you unlock your phone, send a text message, change a setting? I can't find it in sound settings and it's driving me crazy to the point I just want to return the phone.

Comment: 

Is there anyway to change your text sound to a custom ringtone and not a preset ones? Its just a little peeve.

Comment: 

Can anyone please share the part number printed on the battery of their T404g? Thanks in advance.

Comment:

Comment:
