Love my phone, battery life not so much

by Susan L
(St. Louis, MO)

I've been using mine for about a year now, and overall I'd have to give the phone two thumbs up. It's everything I expected and then some. Connection is great, it's sturdy, makes texting a dream, and feature-rich. Even the speaker phone feature works much better than other phones I've owned.

I especially love that I can attach pictures to my contacts and add special ringtones so that I know who's calling from across the room without having to touch my phone. The browser is exceptional for a prepaid phone. I'm constantly using the camera, video, and the voice recorder to attach commentary on the photos I send to people. As a grandmother, it's perfect for me when visiting the grandkids.

Really my only complaint is the T401g's battery life. I definitely haven't been able to get the kind of battery life everyone talks about. My talk time averages about 4 hours, but standby time is only 3 days at best. I usually have to recharge every other day. I replaced the battery recently, without much improvement. But in all fairness I have the unlimited plan, use this phone as my only phone, so it really gets a workout.

I've recommended and purchased this same phone for other family members, and we're all more than happy with it. I highly recommend the T401g.

Battery stopped charging

This phone worked great for the first few weeks! I loved it and it was fast at texting, and cheap to supply with airtime. But about 3 WEEKS after I got it, my phone stopped charging! I had to get a new battery and it still wouldn't charge. I got a new charger, nothing.

The phone breaks easily and it was really costly and annoying. I ended up having to get a new phone anyways. I wouldn't say that this phone is the best buy for someone who travels a lot because it is likely that it will get squished in a suitcase or something. I wouldn't recommend this phone.

- These opinions are all my own.

Susan,

Thanks for your comments. I'm a fan of the T401g as well. It's currently my regular phone. I haven't experienced any battery life issues, but, on the other hand, I don't use it as much as you do.

Regards.
