This is a very basic phone but I can't complain because it was free with a 2-year contract. It has everything I need without the fancy stuff. It calls well, has speakerphone, and text messaging. I don't have a camera on it and I can't check my email, it is not even Blue Tooth capable but that was a sacrifice I was willing to make for a free phone that's not ugly. The t219 is actually really cute. It is very small and shiny red. I'm not embarrassed to carry it around even though it's not a Blackberry. One night's charge holds for about 3 days. That's amazing compared to the five hours that a Shadow gets. I am also pleased to discover that if bought without a 2-year contract, this phone is $80.00.
