I was pretty weary at first about purchasing a Samsung phone, espeically after my experiances with other brands (like Motorola). I purchased this phone for my husband who is very rough on phones. I was hoping since he would probably break the outside screen, at least this phone had an additional screen inside the clam so I wouldn't have to purchase another phone for him immediatly.

Well, we purchased the phone over a year ago and BOTH screens are still going strong. He's not real technology savvy, but has become an avid texter with the use of the QWERTY keyboard. The phone is simple to navagate and has some optional apps included (like a GPS and some games).

Picture quality is pretty good, although I think they have the lens in a weird spot so you block it most of the timewith your finger.Sending and getting pictures is a breeze and having the MP3 player built into the phone is great. I would like to see built in AM/FM capabilities though.

The phone itself isn't real bulky and a full battery charge lasts for days (so long as you aren't contantly on the internet). All-in-all, a great phone that my husband and I both highly recommend.

I have subscribed to T-Mobile for almost a year and purchased the Samsung Comeback because it was free.  In the beginning I enjoyed the phone but after awhile I was no longer enthused.  The screen is too small and navigating the pages can be a little frustrating. Although there is a camera feature, the picture quality is poor and there is no flash on the phone to assist in lighting.  Surfing the web is somewhat easy but for larger pages, one will have a difficult time accessing the page, the big blue certificate warning screen pop-ups and sometimes the pages will lock your phone and it will automatically turn off on it's own.  Intially I thought it was my particular phone but after I received a replacement the problems did not disappear. The phone is cute and has a lock to avoid autodialing but it has become more of a pain than anything.  My current problem is receiving texts in large fonts.  My settings are correct but why this is happening I don't know.  As soon as I am able I will get a new phone!

Had this for 4 years before upgrading to S4!

By 

from USA

Comments about Samsung - Comeback SGH-t559 Cell Phone:

This phone is not as advanced as today's touch screens and does not hold apps, but at the time I purchased this phone, most phones didn't. This phone is GREAT for texting. It has a button just for smiley faces. I love this phone, but I knew it was time for an upgrade. Even though it lasted me 4 years, around the last year, it occasionally would turn off by itself. It did not happen that frequently though and the phone is very durable.
It was great for its time!

Cannot judge the Comeback by the looks

By 

from Palermo, ME

Comments about Samsung - Comeback SGH-t559 Cell Phone:

I must say that I am disappointed in this product. I was so excited by the picture and thought it was a very sharp looking phone. When it came the first thing I realized, it was very bulky and did not fit right in my hand. There just seems to be too many steps to get to where I want to be. I got this phone over 5 months ago and still do not have if figured out. I must say that I would not recommend this phone to anyone.

Love this Samsung Comback Phone!

By 

from Lawrence, KS

Comments about Samsung - Comeback SGH-t559 Cell Phone:

Yes, I know this phone has some problems, but I LOVE this phone :-)

Although this phone only comes with two colors (red and purple), purple is not too bad. It was my school color, so I decided to pick purple.

I textmessage every day, so separate keys inside helps me a lot! The key pads inside is like your computer, so you don't have to push the same key again and again and again! I hate doing that. I know this phone is bulky, but to have keyboard, I think it has to be this size. Both key pads light up, so I can textmessage in dark too.

Yes, the camera quality is not the best, but I don't use camera on my phone often, so it is fine by me.

Personally, I don't think this phone gets scratched easily. I have this phone for a while now and always keep it in my purse without cover, but I don't have any scratches on my phone.

I like the quality of the sound too. I can clearly hear voice. I usually talk hands-free way (flip the phone and use the speaker), and my husband (who has a blackberry) always tells me he wishes he has my phone.

I love this phone so much :-)

Not so good as expected

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Samsung - Comeback SGH-t559 Cell Phone:

I bought this Samsung - Comeback SGH-t559 Cell Phone online. This cell phone has plenty of features, such as quad-band support, 3G, a full HTML browser with Flash Lite support, and GPS. It also has very good call quality. My husband has a Sony cell phone. The quality is not so good as the Samsung-comeback SGH-t559. The cons is that this samsung cell phone has a clunky design. Therefore, this samsung comback cell phone is a little bulky for me. This cell phone has a tranditional and qwerty keyboard. I am not a messger lover. So I do not use that function too much. This cell phone has two screens. There is built-in camera and camcorder in it. But do not expect too much and the pixals is very low. I would like to buy a real camera and camcorder to take the photos. The keyboard is also on the small side. Anyway, if you do not mind its bulky appearance, this cell phone is not a bad choice. The review online suggests this cell phone is a good choice for messaging.

I Love it

By 

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Samsung - Comeback SGH-t559 Cell Phone:

I have now had the samsung comeback for 6 months. I have service with t-mobile and at first thought i was getting a cheap product. I have found out since i have had the phone my opinion has changed. I really like this phone. The clarity is great and the battery life is exceptional. The phone is also very durable i have dropped it a few times and there are no marks on it. The key board is very easy to use and makes texting very easy. I would recommend this phone to anyone who likes to text

Would not reccommend

By 

from Santaquin, UT

Comments about Samsung - Comeback SGH-t559 Cell Phone:

I've had this phone for a year now and have had nothing but problems since the day I bought it. For one, its very bulky if you try to put it in your pants pockets. Especially if you have a cover on it. I had a cover on mine and everytime I would try to put it in my pocket the cover would come off. The phone sometimes hangs up on people, it doesn't always send your text messages, and it gets scratched very easily. The camera on it is not the clearest either. Its fine if you leave the pictures on your phone and just look at them on there but if you try to upload them to your computer then they are all blurry. I'm not a very tech savvy person so I don't have anything on it like mp3 songs or games or internet or anything like that so I can't comment on that stuff but as for a basic person trying to use her phone for basic needs like calling and text messaging I would recommend you get a different phone, this one just doesn't cut it in my opinion.

The Perfect phone for the daily texter.

By 

from Logan, UT

Comments about Samsung - Comeback SGH-t559 Cell Phone:

I purchased the Samsung Comeback in February 2010. It is a wonderful phone. It has a full QWERTY keyboard, which is perfect for texting and surfing the internet. One of the best things about this phone is that the data plan is only 10.00 instead of the 30.00 that Smart phones have to carry. It comes in 2 color combinations. Red/black, and White/plum. I choose the White/Plum because it was more Feminine the features on this phone are fairly user friendly and easy to navigate. I have not had any major issues with the battery holding a charge. Which is one of the main reasons that I switched to the Samsung brand. I was tired of having to charge my phone. With the Comeback I can go for 3-4 days before I need to charge it. With the flip screen it makes reading text messages easy. and if you aren't able to finish your text reply it will save it in a draft and not have to woor that closing the flip part will erase it. On a scale of one to ten I give this Phone an 8. Very good quality and worth the money!

This Cellphone is really awesome!

By 

from Hopatcong, NJ

Comments about Samsung - Comeback SGH-t559 Cell Phone:

I agree with a lot of the other people who have reviewed this. This phone is amazing. I've had it for more than 6 months and there's not a scratch on it. It's not over used either because when people see it they're like "whoa cool cell phone! What's it called?" I like that. Also I love the keyboard and all the cool gadgets and helpful apps. I really recommend it.
