BLU Tank - User Reviews

  • how do i get bak off to put in battery

  • Be careful the new version t191 is not a good option vs the t190 the new t191 is the worst option it's cheapest i love the 15 days t190 battery life and hate the 6 day or less t191 batery life they apear the same but the change, trash is inner

  • Lo how do I take photo with blu?

  • Does this support MMS? I want to know if it can receive and send group messages.

  • Can I put a nanochip in this phone? is nanochip the same as mini-SIM?

  • how do i get the phone to english

  • How do i change from spanish to english ?

  • yepp

  • Use an sd card.

  • how do I operate the camera on the Tank 11? I keep getting "not enough memory"

  • i need a front glass for my brand blutank-t191 that got mash in the same day that i borght it

  • The manual was probably simplified because BLU makes products geared towards youth who want reliability, simplicity, *AND* good looks. But usually if one phone focuses on the teen market it usually has a place for senior citizens. I am thinking of picking up this phone to compliment my Samsung A157V. I like that it has the perks post-2010 feature phones from India and Africa have such as torch lights and FM Radio. It's rather sad that you have to scrounge for a older phones with worse battery to get a Radio antennae. This phone is perfect. I need to get a life and get away from smartphones for a good while until the modular revolution gives me a reason to 'go smart'.

  • How to reset this thing😤

  • how to play games?

  • Urgent! Urgent! Urgent! Please, anyone knows how to switch from sim1 to sim2 and vice versa on the BLU Tank?

  • is there anyway to get the radio off my preset?

  • how do u turn down the ring tone valume

  • An online manual showing HOW to do all the wonderful things the "Manual"shows would be good.Even the folks where I bought it had a hard time entering names and numbers in the "phonebook." And they were young tech savey folks not a "living dinosaur"like myself

  • There is no speed dial save for press and hold 1 to go to voicemail

  • GREAT user manual. Tells you what you can do, but it does not tell you HOW.. Same problem on line in the user manual. I returned it.

  • Im having the same problem. does anyone have a solution? it's like the speaker is muted.

  • Does anyone know if there's a speed dial function on a T191 Tank phone? the instructions previously given were for a T190 (copied form another site). BLU's online documentation on the phone is non-existent and the manual that came with my phone mentions things that don't exist and v/v. Otherwise: a great cheapie dual-SIM, bluetooth phone ($14.95 from Staples) with an excellent battery life.

  • tap the center button, the 4 choices in the MENU screen will pop-up. Tap the '*' and you will return to the main screen with a little key shown at the bottom. tap the center button again and it will say "now press * key". Tap '*' and the keyboard will unlock. Note: even when the keyboard is locked you can answer a call, but you have to unlock to check a text or voicemail.

  • can this phone be used in Vietnam?

  • I found how to set the automatic keyboard lock, but was wondering if there is a way to leave the automatic setting off and set it manually at the completion of a call? Thanks.

  • I found how to set the automatic keyboard lock, but was wondering if anyone knows how to manually set it, or if this is possible.

  • Hold down # key and will switch back and forth between vibrate and the currently selected profile.

  • To "Activate Speed Dial" (assigns a phone number to the keypad): Menu->Phonebook->7.Speed Dial->1.Status->On (yes, took me a while to figure it out. You can assign the name/number through the contacts menu but each time I press and hold down the key, nothing happened until I went into the menu system to "turn it on".

  • I can't seem to find how to activate the bluetooth. Looked in settings and just can't fine it. Could someone direct me? Thanks

  • How do I turn up the volume so i can hear people talk when im on the phone with someone else..I can hardly hear them talk to me. ?

  • No, it is not waterproof.

  • I just bought it and I'm trying to discover where the games are. I found a "yes" in the description, but it comes with none and I already tried Java, Snes, and Nes... no results or I do not know how to do it. Could you please help me a bit with this?

  • do you have the pink ones available now?

  • U can get my phone

  • No

  • you have to go back in and save after each entry you need to do that with alot of things on this phone. so after entering each piece of info select with the left line (above green phone) then click save

  • is this phone waterproof?

  • Has anyone found a way to store contacts. I can put in a name and then drop down to the number field but I'll be darned if I can get a number to go in there. Other than that I like the phone, it's small. lightweight, inexpensive and has surprisingly good volume and tone. Volume is important because I'm hearing impaired.

  • how do you add m,oney to your account

  • camera is found in multimedia menu

  • how do you use the camera, can't find it in the menu or anywhere. Also, how to set the time.

  • Hi. Try pressing the number for 2 or more seconds. It will automatically initiate the call. It works for me. :)

  • It DOES have Bluetooth, but it doesn't have predictive text input. I've searched a lot and I didn't find it. Or my device is wrong, or it certainly doesn't have T9. Pity!! It was so close to be perfect...

  • newegg

  • How to get access to internet??????????

  • ebay or amazon

  • Ebay

  • It doesn't have Bluetooth and it doesn't have Predictive text input. That's too sad.

  • how do i block restricted calls?

  • How do I set up my voice mail profile? When I push and hold #1, I get a message that says "Invalid number format. Should be 11 digits or more." But how do I enter my phone number for VM? Thanks

  • under settings,select user profiles,then select the option --customize-- one of the settings there is to adjust ringer volume,and another is for --ring,vibe etc.don't forget to select activate after adjustments.

  • when the solid blue space appears,press the center of the four way navigation button,then another screen appears where one can input names etc. what i want to know is if anyone has been able to use the blue store to get games or downloads.

  • Can anyone tell me how to store contacts? I get to the "name" option with a solid blue place to enter it, but nothing happens when I try to actually enter a name or number....

  • Can someone tell me how to adjust the ringer volume on the Blu TANK phone & is there a way of putting it on vibrate. I can't find it anywhere. Thank you

  • how do I retrieve deleted messages from the phone internal memory

  • the phone but I can't get the one touch speed dialing to work...I have it turned on and set to the speed dial and numbers chosen for #2 - 6...but when I press #2 it says it does NOT recognize this feature?

  • Depress red button for a few seconds.

  • Change battery then try charging

  • Absolute rookie here. Tank T190i just arrived. Plug in via usb or adapter and it lights up with battery charging icon moving. Less than 1 minute later, display goes dim, then goes black. Press center button, it all lights up again and charging icon starts rolling along. Unplug, press center button, no action.

  • Go to the menu where the file manager is located, you'll see the option there, at least in my phone(spanish lang selected) its the first option
