A new entry-level phone from Samsung for T-Mobile

Starting today new T-Mobile customers or existing folk with an expired contract can get the Samsung SGH-t229 for only $29.99 with a two-year agreement. It’s not the flashiest phone out there, but Samsungs in this form factor are as reliable as they get.

The new phone has a simple flip phone design with an active red finish with gray accents. It includes a built-in camera with 4x zoom, Bluetooth, and a speakerphone. You can also take advantage of T-Mobile’s myFaves service. It comes with a Lithium Ion Battery offering six hours of usage and eight days standby time. Sounds like a good one for beginners.
