    Samsung T-239 $60 now at Sears

    The Samsung T-239 slider is now available at Sears for $59.99. I picked one up and if pics are wanted, they will be posted (give me an hour, at least).



    The Nokia 1661 is also available at Sears, for $20.

    Well I didnt even know this phone existed.

    Nice to see it has bluetooth too, price seems good. Wouldn't mind a review with some nice pictures. Is this like a t429 but half the price?

    I can tell you right off that Bluetooth is limited to headset only. I have several Bluetooth phones and my laptop is also Bluetooth enabled and the T-239 did not see any of them.

    Just came up on Samsung's website: http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/d...TMB&fullspec=F



    go ahead. express yourself.

    The SAMSUNG t239 is more than just a phone.
    It’s an attractive slider, a multiple messaging
    device, a digital camera with zoom, a mobile
    internet device and a personal organizer.
    And it can do it all without wires.
    In other words, you’ll be able to connect with
    your friends, family and coworkers with style.

    Here is the new Samsung T-239 pictured (from left to right) alongside the Samsung Helio Heat, the Samsung Tracfone T-301, and the Virgin Mobile Samsung Slash…









    Would like to know what prompted them to place the camera lens on the back of the phone, and not on the slide part. There is no flash for the camera and not even a mirror for self pics. T-zones is labeled “web2go”, but still takes you to T-zones. It does support instant messaging (AIM, Yahoo, and Windows Live).

    Not real impressed with it, especially for $60. Will let it charge overnight and will take some pics (a VGA camera) with it tomorrow.

    Hey, try going to tmobilepro.redirectme.net in the browser.

    I just want to confirm something before actually buying it.

    Well first *#87927# leads you to the Hidden Web settings menu where you can set up the proxy.
    So if I get the phone I just have to change the web settings to the proxy and the go to tmobilepro.redirectme.net where I can get free browsing

    I picked up one of these at Best Buy on Friday afternoon, and so far I've been pleasantly surprised.

    As it seems to be the replacement for the T429, comparisons to that phone universally stack in the 239's favor; everything from the screen to the fit and finish to the sound quality are superior on the 239, and at half the price. I liked the 429, but the 239 has so much more of what I look for in a phone (screen and sound quality, fit and finish) that I can't see ever using the 429 again. I'll probably give it to my brother.

    The camera on the back bothers me a little, as opposed to the inside of the slide, but it's slightly recessed, so it doesn't pick up smudges and scratches as easily as the camera on the Katalyst. I'd also like to be able to change the theme color, instead of being stuck with pink-and-white, but it's not such a big deal. The pros far outweigh the cons, in this case.

    Like the Katalyst, and the VM Slash, and unlike the 429, the 239 is easy to slide open without flinging it across the room. (Well, *I* always had trouble with the 429, anyway.) Unlike the Slash, the 239's "back" button doesn't crunch like an angry potato chip when pressed.

    Those of us with large thumbs will appreciate the phone's width, which is a little greater than that of the 429 and the Katalyst, along with the roomy 4-way toggle and the large OK button. It's not cumbersome, but you know it's there, which I like.

    I'd recommend the T239 without hesitation to anyone who's a fan of the slider form factor, and to anyone who simply might be in the market for an inexpensive, dependable replacement.
