  • Excerpt: "I used this mobile for 2 years and only had to stop when it fell in some water and the screen stopped working. It is a nice handset, quite large and solid. I found it very reliable and easy to use. The buttons are quite large, which is very convenient. Some people did comment that it is a very large phone but for me it was fine. There is a choice of rings, all very simple, no fancy tunes like "Macarena " or anything like that. I was ...

  • Excerpt: "I had this phone a few years back - i wanted a mobile phone and being young couldn't afford one and it was the original 'coca-cola phone' so i collected loads of coupons for it. At the time i thought it was the best thing ever! The Nokia 5510 was just coming into play so phones weren't really about style and i was the only one of my group of friends with this phone and they all wanted one! Now it's very outdated but has all the basic requirements ...

  • Excerpt: "I bought my Ericsson A1018s only to use for a couple of months, as it’s vital I have a mobile phone as I commonly receive important calls. And plus I would be lost without one as I don’t have a landline phone. I bought mine for £29.99 after spending £40 at Safeway’s. First impressions of this phone were generally good, as it seemed generally tough and reliable. I was very happy with it until I upgraded about a month later to ...
  • Pros: Strength, more features than rival M3788e
  • Cons: poor reliability,looks,Voda network .

I LOVE MY BRIIIIICK

Tanthalas, Ciao
29 August 2001
  • Excerpt: "I'm a no-nonsense kinda guy. I want a phone that works, rings people, texts, and won't get damaged in a Laserquest arena. 2 months and a few tokens later, and I've got meself an A1018S. No regrets. The main reason I got the A1018S is because it is solid. Really rock solid. I've dropped it down two flights of stairs, stood on it, and had my cousin try ripping it to pieces. It isn't even scratched. Which fits my lifestyle as a teen perfectly. I run ...
  • Pros: Big, sturdy, dialable, functional, well made brick !
  • Cons: Hard to find accessories .   Doesn't make a cup of tea .

2 June 2001
  • Excerpt: "I had an Ericsson A1018s mobile phone because once I missed the bus and couldn't get home. When I got I thought it was brilliant and it was. The model is old and the phone is a bit bulky. The good thing about was that you could make your own ring tones and get ring tones for them online. I knew that you could change the front covers for them but I didn't know where to buy them. The only place that I could buy them was at Folkestone market on one of ...
  • Pros: You can make calls and change the ring tones .

The A1018s..It does what it supposed to do

cobnutty, Ciao
3 May 2001
  • Excerpt: "Since buying my Ericsson A1018s, mobile phone technology has moved on at an extraordinary pace. WAP, voice dialling and even TV tuner! The biggest change is the size of today's phones. The A1018s is a large, bulky and solid piece of kit compared to newer phones, but it does exactly what most people require a mobile phone to do...make calls! I know that this next question will upset a few people but who NEEDS WAP? The A1018s does is not a posers ...
  • Pros: Good solid phone .
  • Cons: Flashing light is quite distracting

A solid, if basic, phone...

15 April 2001
  • Excerpt: "...Luckily we have an Ericsson registered phone shop near to us that is able to (in general) deal with anything that went wrong fairly quickly. If you can still find this phone in the shops it will be pretty cheap now. If all you need to do with your phone is make and receive calls and send the odd text message then you could do worse. If you're looking for something that will make a statement to people, then I'd avoid this one. ...
  • Pros: Should be pretty cheap by now .   It does the basics .
  • Cons: Screen is susceptible to damage .   Very chunky .

  • Pros: Accessories well stocked by most mobile phone shops
  • Cons: BIG and bulky
