I bought a T191 phone as it came with heaps of free talktime and a free sim card. After 2 weeks the screen was scratched to hell, after 4 weeks it started randomly beeping and turning off. I needed tweezers and a microscope to send a txt, the keys are tiny. After 2 months the phone had been "repaired" 3 times on warranty and no longer worked. After a quick trip back to the store they happily swapped it for a Nokia 1100 which is heaven compared to that old piece of junk. (read more)

I like this Motorola Talkabout T191 mobile phone, mostly because of the fact the design is a 10 in it self. It got what I need from a phone and no more than that. But allthough the design is beatiful, it very quickly loses it's charm as the polish surface gets scrtaches just by looking at it. The rubber antenna also gets pretty gros pretty quickly. The software is quit allright, althoug I miss adding words to the dictionary, a thing I definetly want later. The software sometimes act very... (read more)

The key edges on the Motorola Talkabout T191 are very close 2 each other. the screen will easily get scrached. the software in the mobile phone is not good. this phone switch's itself off. menus are good but not interactive/user friendly. good weight, very good size/compact. the alarm dosn't have a snooze. we definetly need that.

I use my Motorola Talkabout T191 mobile phone for a year its a good phone if you know how to use it i put it to my pocket which holds coins and its screen stratched just after i bought it. Its menus are also bad designed but thanks to customizable fast access you can easily access important features. It has an alarm clock inside which is a very important add on especially for me, other than that it has a calculator which also can be quite helpful sometimes. It also have nice games . But its...

When I bought the Motorola Talkabout T191 mobile phone, the sales person actually advised me against it as they had so many complaints. Didn't listen because I had my heart set on it, it's just so cute. Broke down pretty quickly, but I sent it off for repair no problem. It promptly broke down again, this time two days out of warranty. I'm now in the process of buying a new phone, and believe me, even though I love the motorola t191, I won't be getting another.

Bought as replacment for a (faulty) Siemens C35i, wish i had just payed up for the dearer Nokia. The screen marked within almost the first week, the reception is variable at best and i constantly have to use the network search facility, that is if the menu system doesn't stall meaning i have to turn off the damm thing. Which brings me to its main failing, it swithes off in the middle of calls, just whenever it feels like. (read more)

I like the size, weight and overall user freindliness of the Motorola Talkabout T191. Not a patch on nokia for after sales stuff and the aeriel defeats the point of the phone being compact.

The prime reason for purchasing this Motorola Talkabout T191 is because of it's aesthetic appeal.For all the technological add-ons it provides, I wonder how the designers overlooked the adjustment of the volumes of the ring tone,speaker and the microphone! It would have been a great convenience to control the audio levels especially in solemn environment. (read more)

Dont buy this phone. These phones, as I found out when I went to get it fixed, have power problems. They are known for switching off for no reason. I had to take mine to get fixed 3 times, always returned with the same problem. In the end they ended up giving me a new phone, same model. They didn't give me a new battery though. This is direct from Motorola Australia. When I spoke to the people who fix them, they responded saying that this model is bad, they get so many returned its not funny. (read more)

This phone is small and can look stylish, but if you are buying a phone for style alone, you would be better off investing in a phone that has for instance a flip-top, colour screen and polyphonic ringtones. Saying that, it is one of the most classy and stylish cheaper phones on the market.
I found the menus easier to use than those on Nokia phones, although the "soft-keys" ('Select' and 'Back') are the "wrong way round" (ie 'Select' is on the right and 'Back' is on the left), which may... (read more)

First of all, I would like to say that overall, the Motorola t191 is a great phone. It surpassed my expectations in the way of features, however, it seems to me that the OS was written in a hurry since while the menu is clean and organised, the sub menues tend to flood the screen. The Quick access menu offers some relief to this being able to create shortcuts to 9 commonly used functions.
Slowdowns occure when browsing menu but are much more frequent when the phone memory is being used... (read more)

If you don't need using this phone too frequently, it is OK, more or less. Otherwise, the user interface is a pain to use, you need recharging it frequently, and worst of all, it can "freeze" and become useless for some time.
I like its voice quality, though. Better than with my land line phone. (read more)

I've just recently bought a Motorola T191 and I have to disagree with what some of you have said about this phone. I personally think it's a great mobile phone and I have never had any problems with it. I do know that the early models of this phone had it's problems but I think you can buy in confindence today as all these firmware problems will have been sorted out. All I can say is that it's great little mobile phone and should last me a least a couple of years before I need to upgrade again. (read more)

I am an old user of Motorola sets, and recently switched over to GSM connection (Previously I was using the AIMS connection) Motorola still remains the best in the market with regards to its reception quality.
But this mobile model has some deficiencies in this regard. This model T 191 is a beautiful smart model of the Motorola, having good features and excellent battery capacity. (read more)

I thought that when I had bought the t191 I had struck gold, but after I had charged it I was disappointed with the opitions, poor games and finding out that I couldn't even get any more ringtones. I had the t191 for a month and then sold it to another unlucky buyer. I now have a 3410 which has good games and is very reliable. My advice to you is not to go near this terribly made phone.

Secondly, after plugging the phone into the charger, I often found that it did n't re-charge at all.
