Disclaimer
Please read the product description carefully for all unlocked cell phones.

Some unlocked cell phones sold by Newegg may have previously been locked to a specific carrier. A carrier-locked cell phone may often have carrier-specific applications and branding. Some of these applications cannot be unlocked and/or may not function with a different carrier. Also, applications requiring a data plan may result in data usage charges from the original carrier.

In addition, the cell phone box may arrive unsealed and the cell phone may appear previously handled. The unlocking procedure requires unsealing the box and manually handling the cell phone. In this case, the cell phone should not be considered "tampered with" or "defective".

4 out of 5 eggsSimple. Dual SIM. Friendly.

Pros: This phone, if left to idle, will last a full week without charging.
The ability to switch between two full sized sim cards while in operation is very convenient. I can monitor which providers push better signals to this device in limited areas of connectivity. The phone provides basic features for any mobile device user. Very user friendly once configured. Perfect for elders with limited accessibility.

Cons: Phone arrived with the GUI set to spanish. I've provided instructions on how to switch between spanish and english for users that cannot do so. You can find these instructions at this product's questions page.

4 out of 5 eggsLove this phone, wish it has better BT auto-connect

Pros: I bought this Blu T190i from Newegg store on e Bay to use as an emergency phone in case something happens to my Samsung Galaxy S2 and I can't use it. For under $30, this is a very good phone. The audio is loud and clear, the Bluetooth is very easy to set up, the FM radio has excellent reception, the size is very compact (great for pocket phone)... The specs said this phone would accept a microSD card with 8GB max but I tried a Samsung 16GB microSD in it and the card worked great with no problems. The battery after a full charge seems to last forever.

Cons: It was hard for me to figure out where to find the Bluetooth option in the MENU because BLU has put it under the Organizer submenu. It was very easy to pair the T190i with my Panasonic DECT 6.0 home phone system with Link-to-Cell feature. But every time I powered the phone OFF/ON or when I came back to the Bluetooth range, the T190i always asked me if I wanted to connect to the Panasonic DECT 6.0? The same thing happened when I paired the T190i with the Samsung Bluetooth headset. I do wish it has auto-connect like the other BT devices I'm using. A bit annoying but I'm not gonna complain about that too much given the low price of the phone. Now I will be happier if I can find where to order extra batteries for the T190i.

Other Thoughts: Charging the phone the 1st time took quite a long time, about 4 hrs or so. I took out the T-Mo SIM from the Samsung S2 and inserted into the SIM1 slot of the T190i, powered it up and I could use my cell phoneline instantly. Texting was hard and took longer when we got used to texting on a touch-screen phone. The specs said it accepted a microSD card with 8GB max but I didn't have an 8GB uSD card so I just tried the Samsung 16GB class-10 card laying on my computer desk and it worked without problems. The phone recognized the total size as 14.9GB which was correct because 16 * (1000/1024)^3 = 14.9. Honestly, I think a 4-8GB microSD card is a great size for this phone.
