Just a phone...

rarity, Ciao
6 January 2004
  • 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 ...
  • Pros: Works faultlesly
  • Cons: Not many features

Not The Max.

  • 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. The phone however does look stylish ...

Not bad, but the software could be better

jamesleed..., Ciao
16 July 2001
  • 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. Another point too is that text messages ...
  • Pros: handsfree, looks good
  • Cons: software isn't standard  -  Hard to navigate

  • 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!! You can have the cover of this phone in white, grey or black and yes I know what you are thinking, how boring ...
  • Pros: sexy, different, plays music
  • Cons: limited aspects, different, expensive !

Nice phone shame about the service

Zapatero, Ciao
2 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "...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. Having used One2One's pay-as-you-go ...
  • Pros: Good - looking phone, easy to use
  • Cons: Inconsistent service

Max in style and Cheap calls

GraWar, Ciao
25 November 2000
  • Excerpt: "...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. At the time of purchase the phone was £60-00 with a £12-50 service pack required which included £10-00 worth of calls. All this with Virgin's incredibly cheap tariff of 15p a minute for the first 5 minutes and 5p a minute from there after. I needed a mobile with cheap calls but also ...
  • Pros: cheap calls, reliable network, lovely phone, free accessories
  • Cons: none !

Girly but too chuncky

madawi, Ciao
5 October 2000
  • 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. You must remember to lock the keypad ...
  • Pros: Competitive call rates, handsfree option lots of ring tones
  • Cons: chuncky, heavy , text messaging is basic
