Due to the limited plan I'm getting for my son for college, there are very few choices for phones. I've narrowed down the choice to 2 phones and was wondering which one is better in your opinion.

Samsund t319 $90

Samsung t509 $50

My son prefers the second one. He wanted a flip phone at first, but then he said it did not matter to him.

So if you had to choose between the two phones, which would you get?

I'm ordering tonight so I'd appreciate it if I got a quick response.

Thank you!

509. I don't like flip phones, and the only real problem i see with bar phones is that buttons can be smaller than flip phones, but that one doesn't look to have that problem.

See what features he actually needs and decide from there. Will he actually use Bluetooth, camera, built in instant messenger, etc.?

Buy the less expensive one if it serves his needs.

Personally, I prefer flip phones for external caller id/ clock, it takes less space when closed, screen is protected, etc. but it's not worth paying an extra $ 40 just for a flip phone.

The Samsung t319 has a longer talk time, but the t509 has bluetooth
So I would go with the t509 for the bluetooth alone
