  • Excerpt: "I first got this mobile in December 2000, it cost me just £30. It is excellent for someone who has never had a mobile before or doesn't want to spend alot of money, itis however rather basic. It has 27 ringtones, that's all well and good if you can actually hear them, when in a crowed place not once could I hear my mobile ring. There is also no vibrating alert. The only way you can tell if it rings if you are in a noisy environment is because glows, ...
  • Pros: it glows up and cheap price
  • Cons: it reminds me of a brick !

The downsides to the phone are that the phone looks and feels like a brick, it takes about ...

  • Excerpt: "I purchased the Bosch from Argos a couple of years ago. I wanted non-contract and cheap, and it does exactly that; The phone doesn't have downloadable ringtones or logos or interchangable fascias, but I've dropped it all over the country and, as you'd hope from a Bosch product, it carries on working. After a while I was disappointed in the standyby time it was giving me, but £10 for a new battery and I'm as happy as ever. So it's not as sleek ...
  • Pros: Cheap, Indestructable
  • Cons: Somewhat Clunky

  • Excerpt: " Hi, my name is Liam and this is my first opinion I have ever written on Ciao, so please be generous in ratings. Thank you. For my first opinion I have decided to write about the 509e mobile phone. Please bear in mind that I am not a mobile phone expert and so I don’t know exactly what all the gadgets are called, thank you, and enjoy the read. I got this phone about two years ago for my birthday after I had been begging my mum for a mobile ...

One of the most annoying phones..ever.

  • Excerpt: "...phone. You got it the Bosch 509e dual. The first thing I did with the phone was try to put my sim card into it which proved to be a rather frustrating task as it took about four people to surrender before the fifth person defeated the pig of a phone to open up .When I first tried to use the phone, we soon discovered that it didn't make any noise at all, which with me expecting a call at the time, proved to be rather worrying, as I spent the best part ...
  • Pros: It's bright orange, and yeah that's about it .  Also it withstands being thrown on the floor and kicked quite alot too .
  • Cons: Everything except the colour

Basic but individual, robust and cheap

sparkydog, Ciao
17 July 2001
  • Excerpt: "...the job. I chose the Bosch 509e because it was cheap, on the Orange p-a-y-g network which I wanted, and I liked the looks. Also because I looked at the feature list for other phones costing up to three times as much as couldn't see anything major they offered that the Bosch didn't- having seen friends phones, I still can't. I have to say I've been very happy with it. It's simplicity itself to use. I rarely needed to check the manual as its all ...
  • Pros: Cheap, robust, simple to use, well - spaced keys, lights up ! , 27 ringtones, calculator function
  • Cons: No vibrating or predictive text, a little large, battery life only average, power indicator misleading, messages easy to delete

You get what you pay for

  • Excerpt: "I bought this phone as it was the cheapest one on the market, and Orange works well where I live. I also wanted to take advantage of the pay as you go system-less worries if you lose the fone - but it became a bit of a brick once i started using it more- it works fine with text but after 6 months of use it started to play up on voice calls-cutting out and such like. I also has a very short battery life-I have to charge it every day. It also works ...
  • Pros: cheap - free text messages with 'out here' - good reception - easy to use
  • Cons: Its a brick - unreliable if used alot, short battery life

  • Excerpt: "I've had the Bosch 509e phone since my birthday which was...erm...last march. Or was it the year before? I can't remember which, but I haven't regretted getting it for a minute, even now that you could say it's out of fashion(i.e. not a nokia)! I opted for the white cover(it looks a lot cooler than the orange) so that it'd collaborate with my fave footy teams colours, because unfortunately I don't think you can get any clip on covers for it. The ...
  • Pros: looks cool, has some funky(if embarrassing) tunes, easy interface if you read the instructions
  • Cons: may look outdated compared to newer phones
