Do you want to sell or trade your Samsung SGH-T309?
Yes? Good, you’re at the right place.
But first, I need you to determine if you want to trade your phone for a better version, or if you want to sell it for cash?
After you decide, we’ll walk you through the steps to cash in or trade up.
In the meantime, let’s review your phone.
Design & Build
It’s already weird enough to walk around carrying a flip phone these days. But it’s even weirder when that flip phone looks funny. I mean … The phone isn’t ugly. It just looks odd. If you sit it next to a desktop, I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if you mistake the phone for a computer mouse.
Perhaps, I should cut it some slack. The Samsung SGH-T309 is ancient afterall. The Samsung SGH-T309 was released way back in 2006. This is the same year Sony released the PS3 and when BlackBerry was considered cutting-edge mobile technology. And … Oh yeah, iPhones didn’t exist. So the retro corky design of the SGH-T309 kinda speaks for itself.
While it’s not winning any beauty contest, the phone does what it’s supposed to do. Back in those days, people were just happy with having a small, lightweight, reliable cell phone. Features were more like “Oh, that’s cool.” kind of thing. But it wasn’t a top priority. Most importantly, the phone had to work in a world still new to cellular devices.
Samsung SGH-T309 is a solid build. It has a curved top edge, internal antenna, and it’s easy to hold. The phone has a 1-inch external display that doesn’t show a picture caller ID. Instead, it shows time, battery life, date, signal strength, and caller ID. The internal display is slightly bigger, coming in at 1.75-inch with 128 x 160 pixel resolution and 64,000 color display. While the external screen isn’t adjustable, you can adjust the internal screen. Settings like backlight, contrast, brightness, font size, and font color can all be adjusted.
The five-way navigation toggle is small and hard to use. It doesn’t give you much thumb space and is prone to misdials. The OK button in the center doubles as a shortcut to T-Mobile’s T-zones. Plus, the toggle shortcuts can access tools like camera, voice memos, text, and contacts with one touch. The left soft key is a shortcut to the main-menu while the right soft key is a shortcut to the phone book. The keypad buttons are also difficult to dial. They’re small and flat. But the keypad backlight is bright, making it easy to see in the dark.
As I stated before, features weren't on the verge when the Samsung SGH-T309 was released. But it still has some useful features. For example, the SGH-T309 has a very large phone book that stores up to 1,000 unique contacts. Plus, with a SIM card, it can store an additional 250 contacts. The phone book can hold five separate numbers, an email address, and organize contacts into caller groups. It can also pair contacts with one of 15 polyphonic ringtones or with one of 15 MP3 tones. It can also pair contacts with a photo.
Incoming call settings can be set to vibration only, ring only, vibration then ring, or silence. You can deactivate and activate silence by holding down the # key. The call quality is great and the speakerphone has excellent sound quality. However, the battery life isn’t all that great. You can expect to get 4.5 hours max for talk time and 216 hours on standby.
There’s no Bluetooth connectability or headphone jack. So you know what that means: no immersive music experience. That’s sad. Considering it could have come in handy if you need something small and lightweight that could play music and make calls if you’re on a run or something.
Other features include text and multimedia messages, voice memos, and notepad. Also includes PC syncing, calculator, datebook, and world clock. And more features include a unit converter, a timer, a stopwatch, and an alarm clock.
