“I had a t39 when they first came out almost 9 years...”

Written on: 04/02/2010

I had a t39 when they first came out almost 9 years ago. I found it compact, cute, functional and with good battery life and talktime. Recently, I bought another on eBay, as it was truly the most functional phone for text and talk communication I have ever owned. I use a smartphone during the week for business but at the weekend the simplicity and functionality of the t39 can't be beaten… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2009

As we are in 2009, when we are talking strictly about *mobile phone* (not compared to smartphones, multimedia and things like that) this phone has still good features like fast gprs, bluetooth, infrared to survive in the market.

This is by far the best mobile phone I had!! I always bought new phones and right after I was turning back to t39!!
My roadmap...
SE 628 -- SE t28s -- SE t39s --SE P800 --SE t39s --SE SX1 -- SE t39s !!

I wish SE to create a new model with the basis of t39 by placing a… Read Full Review

I wish I had tested the Ericsson T39 thoroughly when I had it. The only big plus was Bluetooth and the phones neat size plus good quality sound when making and receiving calls. The biggest downside was not been able to hear calls coming through and the text message alert tone was abyssmal!… Read Full Review

This mobile is very good, this is the best mobile I has ever - it includes every feature I need and many other more features.

You should make a new mobile based on this one but add to it the harmonic (polyphonic) ring tones and colors, and give it the same shape as this one… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/07/2003 by jlang. (1 review written)

I dropped this Ericsson T39 phone once and the mic no longer works. Thus, I am confined to using a wireless mic which can be an absolute nuisance at times. I would not recommend this phone simply because the integrity of it is poor. I believe that all mobile phones should be capable of withstanding a view drops by its owner… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/06/2003 by Jamie C. (1 review written)

Phone has been sent back twice for repair / replacement. On neither occasion was FAULTS rectified or phone replaced.
Faults :-
1)When vibrate alert feature turned on phone vibrates and possible bad battery connection causes phone to shut off.
2) Phone turns its self off for no good reason, battery is full.
3) Phones displays message charging battery, when no charger connected.
4) Support from Ericsson was terrible, they returned phone stating no problem. It failed again within ONE HOUR.

Written on: 03/06/2003 by Christophe. (1 review written)

I love this T39 phone a lot, it has an architectural line in shape and has attracted many admiring glances over the dirth of anonymous sony-ericssons and nokias out there.
My contract was up for renewal so for an 'upgrade' I got a compact metal motorola phone (v60i?) which due to its annoying over complicated software and poor instructions and nagging tone got given to a relative pretty quick! I'm back with my T39 now and like it even more. The operating system is so easy and its robust and… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/05/2003 by viniosity. (1 review written)

When I try to place a call on this phone it constantly says it is calling but then never actually dials. It's really annoying since I'll have it to my ear for a few minutes only to pull it away and find it has reset itself. To place a call I need to turn the phone off and then on, wait 5 seconds and THEN call. Simply awful… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/01/2003 by Gav. (1 review written)

This is a good phone overall in that its lightweight, small, a superbly robust alloy body but when it comes to texting it can be a bit tricky - when using it in the dark you cannot read the letters on the buttons despite them being lit. Also texting is v-e-r-y slow to keep up with quick fingers. Plus when the phone is in my pocket I get no reception 9 times out of 10 - not good… Read Full Review

This is a great phone for an international businessman. Battery doesn't match the advertised 300hours and there is a software bug. Everytime I try to compose an e-mail, the phone shuts itself down. Also, e-mails containing characters other than "system characters" like Ariel or Times New Roman cannot be viewed at all… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/01/2003 by Jen. (1 review written)

I bought the T39 because Nokia were taking forever to release a triband, bluetooth, GPRS fone in Australia. It worked well for this first few months. An now no-one can hear me on the phone. If I use the blue tooth headset I can't hear them. I have called ericsson & they advise I need to take it to a service centre (Great (Not)). I don't think my face has grown as reported in another comment on this site. The phone is great for WAP, Bluetooth and GPRS but a complete waste of time for phone… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/11/2002 by Annie. (1 review written)

This was a great phone to have. I really liked it's size, and the menus were easy to use. Now I can't use it at all because it can't seem to locate a network. I have spoken to a few people who have experienced the same problem. Is it a fault with the phone? I know it's not my chip as I have no problem using it in other phones. Can it be resolved please?… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/10/2002 by dazza. (1 review written)

I have had nothing but problems since I bought my Ericsson T39 mobile phone in April. I have had 3 replacements and 4 repairs and my current phone is still faulty.
The battery life is advertised at 300 hours stand by and 10 hours talk time, Im lucky to get 200 hours and 2.5 hours.
The reception is terrible - I have been in places with friends with different phones on the same network - they have had full reception, I have had none.
Ericsson have been less than helpful with my problems, avoid… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/05/2003

I have the same bad experience with the T 39. It would be a great phone if it would work. The fact that the service of SonyEricsson is incredibly bad doesn't make it better. I just received a defect replacement for the faulty T39 I turned it. Now I am waiting for replacement number 4. Normal waiting time: 2-6 weeks each time. One would expect SonyEricsson checks there phones before they deliver them.

Written on: 20/09/2002 by Matthew. (1 review written)

I wouldn't buy one of these Ericsson T39 mobile phones if it was free, let alone for cash. This is my 5th phone in 4 months - turns off by itself, shorts the battery to zero charge, locks the software when on web, disproportionatly discharges and generally annoys me like mad. Ericsson phones - wouldn't prop the door open with this one… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/11/2002

Interesting that one comment came back saying that the standby time of the T39 was only 70 hours. A call to Ericsson, or to whoever sold the phone, would quickly show that a known bug with later versions of this phone is a 70-hour standby time. It can be changed with a firmware update. I had mine updated, and now I get 220+ hours standby on a full charge.
Of course, if the phone was stolen or bought illicitly, you wouldn't stand a chance.
