out of date phone that turns itself off

Everybody, Ciao
9 December 2000
  • Excerpt: "...people know about this, but Ericsson phones which have flips like to turn themselves off if U carry them around, this is so annoying. One thing I also dislike about this phone is it's small display, it is absolutely ludricour, even at that time, and I think the inactive flip does it no favours, though personally I like phones with flips. Also I have no idea why there is a big aerial that gets in the way and the battery is only ni-mh, not Li-ION, ...
  • Pros: Was good during its time
  • Cons: Too big, one line display, switches itself off

Ideal to buy second hand off tariff

  • Excerpt: "If you're looking to buy a mobile off contract secondhand, for a spare phone or whatever, this is a great little buy. Now that they have had the T10s, T28s etc out you should be able to pick this up relatively cheaply....there's nothing wrong with having a spare phone! I had this phone about a year ago - my brother now uses it - and it still hasn't had any problems! A tough little thing. When i bought it i initially thought that the flip would break ...
  • Pros: Does the job !
  • Cons: No games as on Nokia phones

practical at best, flimsy at worst

  • Excerpt: "I got this as a present and at the time it was pretty cute, but considering the reasons for having the phone, the looks should not really matter although in this day and age thing are about fashion. It does take calls, is worth buying although it does not seem to be in the market for some reason...if you can get hold of one however, i think you should because it seems it can become a collectors item! I think that the worst feature of this phone is ...
  • Pros: compatible, easy to use
  • Cons: at times poor reception quality

Nice Phone

  • Excerpt: "...a reoccuring problem with most Ericsson phones.... Another thing I noticed was that its ringer became very low when a case was put on it, otherwise the ringer is quite good As for size, I was most impressed by this as it fits neatly into a shirt pocket and into most handbags...... Overall, I would recommend it, but I much prefer the Ericsson T18s which I have just upgraded to.... ...

  • Cons: No received call register

Very Poor

Price, Ciao
29 August 2000
  • Excerpt: "I bought this phone because it was very small, light and because it cost alot. To begin with i was very pleased with the phone. All my mates were astonished at how small it was. Hardly any of my friends had a phone at that time. The phone is very small but it also has a very small screen. It can only fit 1 line of characters on the screen. This means that you dont get any neat picture like you do on other phones and it takes ages to read a message ...
  • Pros: Small, Light
  • Cons: Flimsy, Small screen, Lack of features

Still a good phone

  • Excerpt: "...of the new generation of Ericsson phones. Produced in 1998, Ericsson had gone very small. This 768 version turned out to be a very neat and small phone but somehow it just kinda seemed rushed and when you compare it to the phones that they currently make at the moment then it just, well seems rushed even though today it still sells and looks more modern than other phones. Features are very basic on this phone I find compared with the new ones. ...
  • Pros: light and small
  • Cons: screen to small

  • Excerpt: "After reading all the negative comments of this phone, I decided to give my own opinion. I bought it just over a year ago as part of One2One's all in one 18 month package. Over the past year I have found the reception to be as good if not better than any other phone. The phone is smart, lightweight and compact. The battery lasts just approximately just over 48 hours on standby (which seems reasonable to me) and is very quick to charge (about 1 hour). ...

  • Excerpt: "I bought the ericsson PF768 around 12 months ago now, and certainly would not recommend it to a friend. The keypad buttons are very unreliable, and the signal strength that you actually get with the antenna is very poor, often causing your phone to drop out in the middle of a conversation. However after saying this, the phone is light and easy to carry round town on a night on the beers, and does sit unobtrusively in ones pocket, apart from the fact ...
  • Pros: Small, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor reception, Dodgy buttons .
