Excerpt: Just to add my little bit to the other reviews... This phone is for people who want from their phone to be just a... phone. And nothing else. And I'm one of these people! I've had it for nearly three (yes!) years and it still works fine while my husband's fancy Sony packed up after a few months of use :) It has been dropped countless times and it doesn't even show it! Very reliable and solid. May not look great but it's always there for you...
Excerpt: I received this phone at Christmas 2000. My parents bought it for me, and I can't say that I was very happy. I looked at the phone and I put on a fake smile and said Thanks. However, this phone grew on me, and even after I bought myself a Motorola V2288 six months later, I still used this one, and I gave my Motorola to my mother the Christmas after. Payback!! As far as I am aware, this phone is now unavailable in the shops.
Excerpt: This was the first kind of phone i got as i didnt want to spend a lot of money as i didn't have a job.When i bought it a few years ago it seemed quite good but now it is very dated and doesnt have a lot of features. This is not a very easy phone to work unlike the nokia 3310 which you can figure out how to work without the manual. This phone has very basic features including phonebook, messages and tones.

Pros: Some nice features . Well built and generally an ok phone .
Cons: Overtaken in the style dept . by most Nokia's . The lack of new features may frustrate .
Excerpt: This is quite a good looking phone, its got a long batter life, and plenty of features, but my only problem with it is the way in which it operates. I find it quite tedious to navigate the menu system. Most phones, when turning an option on or off have a toggle menu, i.e. call waiting on/off. But on here its more like 'do you want to turn call waiting on?' and then there is no confirmation after pressing yes.
Excerpt: The Alcatel max db is in a very different individual range. I decided to buy this phone as noone else had it unlike the nokia 3310 which everyone has stuck to their ears, (no affence if you have one!)Its different, smart and very stylish. The unique sexy shape of this phone matches the individual who owns one, and of course that includes me!!
Excerpt: the alcatel max db is a very good looking phone with a sexy shape and colourful buttons.I have had mine for a couple of months now which is long enough to give it a good trial, and i can report it works well with no downsides.The battery life is 5 days on an hours charge thats using it for about 15minutes of calls and messages per day.You get a choice of 20 ring tones and there is a speaker facility.
Excerpt: There's no doubting the fact that the Alcatel is a good looking phone and if you like your watches, trainers and everything else on the chunky funky side, this mobile will fit right in. It looks good, feels right and best of all, is easy to use. Unfortunately however, Virgin's service uses the One2One network, which although has pretty good tarrifs and free voicemail, isn't the best or the most popular network on offer.
Excerpt: Richard branson has made many a fortune producing a great service in a massive range of areas now. I'm pleased to say that he has continued his trend with his mobile network, Virgin Mobile. Virgin Mobile have signed up a fair amount of phones for their new range, some of them exclusive including the phone that I purchased, the Alcatel Max DB. This phone is available in either black or white although I plumped for the black one myself as I think it looks better.
Excerpt: I bought my Alcatel Max DB mobile phone from the Virgin website for £59.95 (inclueds a £10 voucher). This was in response to their TV adverts which portrayed an unsual and more feminine type (techno white) of mobile phone- which is what I wanted. Also, the phone call rates sounded attractive. I found the phone very chunky and quite fiddly to use. You really wouldn't want to tuck this phone in your back pocket.
Pros: Competitive call rates, handsfree option lots of ring tones
