This phone is a great back-up phone .that costs very little but is easy to use sound quality is good and ease of texting with a fairly long battery life makes this a great temporary replacement phone in time of Smartphone breakdowns:)

Good budget phone
The T159 is the ultimate bargain phone to buy when your higher-end phone inevitably ends up breaking.
Texting is a breeze, and the buttons are a good size. (Still, though, I find Samsung physical keypads to never be able to keep up with me when LG's always do.) The camera is nice, and at 1.3 megapixels is better than most of the VGA cameras on other phone models like the T159.
The layouts are smooth and uncomplicated. Call quality is fine, and I seemingly got service everywhere I did back when I had the Sidekick 4G.
Don't be foolish and expect this simple phone to browse the web as fast as some higher end ones and you'll be totally satisfied. It would've been nice if the physical build was designed with a little more flair though.

This is a horrible phone! ! !
Drops calls, sounds like an echo chamber when talking on it. Old phone a Nokia (Grest Phone) I could call from any place in the house. This one I have to be in one spot in the house. Not at all easy to use. Camera is NO GOOD...................

Never had problems with Nokia
The features that are the most important to me are simplicity and the speaker phone. I don't text, play video games, input numbers, etc.. The phone is attractively styled and the battery is now starting to need frequent recharging after 2 1/2 years. The speaker phone is terrible--you listen and talk on the same side so it echos/feedbacks. People hear distorted screaming unless the volume setting is so low you have to strain to hear them. Often I place the phone 12 inches from my mouth so I can turn up the volume to hear better. Overall the sound quality is poor to ok. The newer version of this phone--the t259--has the mouthpiece on one side and hearing on the other side.
