Pros Ringer loud. Great feel. Compact.
Cons Battery life sucks. Phone was on for 12 hours, 3 days in a row. By the 3rd day, the battery was dead. On a full charge!
Summary I would not recomend this phone for any price.

Cons Replacement battery costs more than the phone and home charger!!!
Summary Had this phone for a year now. People can clearly hear me, and I can clearly hear them. Has good range, lasts 5 days per charge on stand by, and has more features and works as good as my land line phone. It does all this for a puchase price of $20 and 20 cents a minute. If you use a phone AS a phone the TNT is the best deal out there.
Pros -Decent call quality
-Nice rubbery surface
Cons -Slippery keys
-Tiny exterior display
-Poorly designed flip mechanism
-Quiet, quiet ringer volume
-Speakerphone crackly and quiet
Summary I bought this phone in a pinch, and found the word pinch was good to describe it... but I'll cover that below. I used this phone for two weeks and here is why: The exterior display malfunctioned and stopped working. If this didn't happen, I might have continued use for a while longer. But, it had some other annoyances that would have ultimately led to a new phone purchase.
As for the pinch? You have to close this phone in a certain way to avoid being pinched by the hinge. It was a bit annoying. But it had a nice snap shut sound to it.
As for the display, you can't see pictures sent to you very well. They look like a little blob on the tiny screen. Why they even included a camera.. I have no idea.
As for the ringer volume, it's so low. You can easily sleep through any alarm clock you set as well. Keep this in mind! You will miss calls and important messages as well.
Here's my bottom line: Perhaps the exterior screen malfunction meant I had a lemon. I'm fine with that, electronics break. But I wasn't driven to get another TNT due to other lacking features of the phone. In my honest opinion.. if you are looking for a cheap phone this one works fine. BUT, there are other better phones that come at the same price. Shop around because you have more options than you think. It does everything it says, maybe not as well as others. But I strongly recommend you consider another phone due to the quiet ringer on this one.
Pros Its small. The design is very nice. The speaker is nice and loud. The keys are very nice.
Cons The external display is too small. Also the Internal display could have been bigger. The battery runs out quickly when using the web. It turns off sometimes. No Camera.
Summary I would say this phone is for someone who uses it for basic stuff like talking and texting not for the web.
Pros Excellent sound quality. Nice design. Great basic phone.
Cons Front display went bad after 4 months. Switches to vibrate without you realizing.
Summary I bought this phone 5 months ago after having a Marbl for a few years. I bought it because of the external display, so I wouldn't have to flip the phone open everytime a call came in (like you have to do with the Marbl). Even with the bright red backlight display, everything is really easy to read, and I like the contacts listing format.
Needless to say, I was extremely impressed with the phone for use as just a basic phone. That is until the front display went buggy on me. That is why I purchased this phone in the first place. OH WELL. I guess I'll just have to deal with it now, or go splurge ($15) for a new one.
Overall, a very decent phone though. No other complaints at all.
