  • Excerpt: "It was yet another Saturday and I was out with my friends. Everything was fine until I dropped my Nokia3310 phone on the ground and the display broke, fortunately a friend of mine gave his Ericsson GA628 to me for FREE a couple of months ago. I changed simcard and once again had a mobilephone of my own. The first thing you notice about the phone is that it's too big to fit your pocket and once you turned this thing on you notice that the display ...
  • Pros: Cheap, the simcard and battery are easy to change .
  • Cons: Too big to fit your pocket, the worthless display and it's too difficult to use .

  • Excerpt: " written on 13.06.01 by andycharger View comments I was the proud owner of a Nokia 3210 until 6 weeks ago when I had my phone stolen. Gone was the lovely shiny phone and its SIM card. Being a VODAPHONE customer, I thought it would be easy to get back on the air. I was wrong. Firstly I ordered a new SIM. It turned up in a couple of days. I then tried to find an old phone to use it with. I tried an actual Vodaphone phone that was ...
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Battery life, sound quality, size,weight, shall I go on?

Kris9, Ciao
11 March 2001
  • Excerpt: "I bought an ericsson mobile phone about 2 years ago, and as I didn't know quite what to expect, I was surprised to find out that it meets my needs almost perfectly. Almost is the operative word there.When I first used the phone it was perfect but as time has gone by things have changed, not always for the better I must add. It has now come to my notice that an ericsson mobile phone does not have the facility to download ringtones from the internet.To ...
  • Pros: Takes a long time for the battery to go flat
  • Cons: no ringtone download as yet !

Cheap and chearfull

gavin4, Ciao
23 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "The ericsson GA628 was The first mobile I ever owned, and it will always hold some sentimental value in my heart. I brought this phone about two years ago when it had just been released, to most of the other mobiles about at the time, it was by far one of the best. The phone itself looks very dull in comparison to say the nokia 3210, but then again you get what you pay for. The biggest downfalls about the phone is that the arial is very week ...
  • Pros: Cheap and chearful/long battery life for old phone
  • Cons: Bulky,week arial and looks old

Not as big as it looks, but still rubbish

NuTTeR426, Ciao
11 November 2000
  • Excerpt: "This handset isn't as big as it looks, the main part of the phone is slightly smaller than a Nokia 5110, and the aerial a bit longer, but it is the styling (square) that makes it look bigger. The display is a one-line, 12 character jobbie, and when you miss a call the whole number won't fit in. Another thing that narks me is the ring volume adjustment, when you put the volume up it rings at the volume you set, which can be embarassing. It has pretty ...
  • Pros: Smallish, reliable, dropable(the battery comes off, but it still works)
  • Cons: Small display, annoying ring vol adjust .

Bad Phone

jimjam15, Ciao
7 October 2000
  • Excerpt: "You can tell this is an extremly cheap phone, just by looking at it. i got mine free with the coca cola offer, but i soon realised how bad it was.it has the lowest battery standby time ive seen (54 hours), and only 195 minutes of talktime.it only has one line of display as well. It does at least have sms messaging. It also has quite good sound quality, and you can change the front covers if want to pay money for it. All in all it is just a cheap budget ...
  • Pros: Sound Quality
  • Cons: Looks, features, battery .

Avoid like the Plague

29 September 2000
  • Excerpt: "The GA628 was my first mobile phone and whilst it was very popular at the time, in today's market it does not have a place. The "stubby" aerial is a nuisance and makes placing in a pocket difficult. I have also found that the aerial is fairly easy to break and the replacement is costly. The one line display is very annoying, especially when writing/reading text messages. I have also found that the reception on this phone is very bad. All in all avoid ...
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: One line display, poor reception, bad aerial design

Ericsson GA 628: The Ugly Duckling

Speedie, Dooyoo
24 September 2000
  • Summary: OK so it may not look the best phone in the world. Think about it as long as it does it's job that's all you need to worry about. I can safely say that the GA628 can take damage and still work perfectly. As long as you are not fussy about the way the phone looks I would say that this was the phone for you. There are no games on it but then do you really want to play games on a mobile? One thing that does bug me about this phone is the missed calls section.
  • Pros: Can take damage
  • Cons: Missed call facility

Beast of a phone!

lee young, Dooyoo
15 September 2000
  • Summary: I used to like this phone alot, but that was when it was first out, it is now quite old! It has changeable fronts, well changeable squares that fit round the buttons! It is a brick of a phone and is a square, not stylish at all. The easyness of the phone is excellent, and the reception that it can get is also good! but thats probaly because of the radar system on the phone which they call an aerial!
  • Pros: easy to use
  • Cons: brick
