They keep going wrong

Jaguar200..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: "I used to have a philips C12 mobile phone on BT cellnet Pay & Go. I got rid of this as I prefered the orange network. My dad said I could have a contract phone if I didn't abuse it. I said cool and decided to get an Ericsson T18 on Everyday 50. This phone looked good and had enough features to satisfy my needs. This phone has vibrate, voice dialing, 4 ringtone spaces and line 2 support, etc. The vibrate isn't that strong but acceptable, voice ...
  • Pros: active flip, vibrate, voice dialing and 4 ringtone spaces
  • Cons: flip is flimsy, vibrate isn't that strong, voice dialing doesn't work, screen is tiny and the phone breaks very easy

T18S shows its age

petergee, Ciao
10 May 2001
  • Excerpt: "My T18S was an upgrade from a Motorola last September (2000) as I wanted a smaller phone with vibrate alert. Unfortunately, I'm already on a replacement as the previous one had a nasty habit of switching itself off (even when sitting on a desk). Thank goodness for Orange auto-replacement policy. Robust it ain't! Good features but keys are small (others have noticed this too) and text messaging is not good but all in all a good little phone. The ...
  • Pros: Vibrate options, size,voice activation, alarm
  • Cons: Weight, Robustness

good sized handset but fairly heavy

lareine, Ciao
22 April 2001
  • Excerpt: "I bought my T18S just over a year ago as part of an Orange package. It cost me £49 as I remember. At the time, this was a fairly small handset and I didn't mind paying a bit extra in order to get a smaller size. It was my first mobile phoone, and I knew that if I got something large or bulky, I wouldn't bother to use it. Having done a little research, i knew that the T18S was dual band and I could use it in the Republic of Ireland as well as the UK, ...

Not so good

Paulh.uk, Ciao
1 March 2001
  • Excerpt: "I have a Ericsson T18s and I to be honest am not that impressed with it. I mean it looks great, small, compact and just stylish in general, however what is with that massive arial? Its just too big and because of its size I have ended up breaking it by accident, it just sticks out a long way at such a weird angle! Also the keys are not actually that easy to use and took ages for me to get used to due to having to really put pressure on them ...
  • Pros: Looks great, nice and small
  • Cons: Big angled thing on the top !

Excellent Ericsson Car Hands Free

johnalder..., Ciao
24 February 2001
  • Excerpt: "I have been using the T18s for about one year now (on the Cellnet network) and reception is excellent compared to earlier phones (have been with Celnett since 1987). My one complaint is that the phone does have the habit of turning itself off on occasions. Ericsson does an excellent self-fit car kit which consists of a cradle to fix to the facia, and a speaker and microphone which fits to the roof-lining of the car just above the drivers ear. The ...
  • Pros: Excellent Ericcson self - fit car kit
  • Cons: phone has a habit of turning itself off

It's quality, not quantity...

thecb, Ciao
30 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "I have to say, the compact little T 18 is the best phone I've had. It's got all the functions you'd expect from a quality prouct as it is, but it's got that little extra too. It's pretty easy to use, I've never needed to refer to the manual, but it looks like a pretty comprehensive manual if I were to need it. One of it's best features in my opinion is that it's small, an so fits in your pocket without an unfortunate bulge! Also the vibrate function ...
  • Pros: Compact, and it vibrates
  • Cons: No predictive text messaging

Pocketsized

bendybits, Ciao
29 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "A phone which slips easily into your pocket has both plus and minus points. Carrying it in my pocket means I drop it less than I have done with it's fore-runners. But it isn't always easy to hear the muffled tones through heavy material. I have been using my T18s for 6 months now, since changing my mobile company. As it was free! It was excellent value for money. It replaced another Ericsson handset, which had given me faithful service for over 2 ...
  • Pros: Size and weight are a major plus and it fits nicely onto the dashboard !
  • Cons: Battery never lasts me a long working day without needing to use the in - car charger .

Unreliable

Sufar, Ciao
11 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "I've had the T18s for a year now and it only took 2 or 3 weeks for me to realise that although it looks good and has some handy features, it can be unreliable. If the battery is at about half, sometimes all voice labels are lost and even the whole address book!! I contacted erikson about this and they told me it was a known problem - I should "wait for the phone to warm up". I found them to be very unhelpful and the only reason I still have the phone ...
  • Pros: small, easy to carry around

Good first impressions, BUT

skerriff, Ciao
8 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "I have my T18s on Orange now since last August, and when I got it I was quite chuffed with it - It was my first contract phone, and as I'm on ED50, I use it quite a bit. Thankfully my ear does'nt warm up too much after using up my 50 minutes. It is certainly small and stylish, and easy to use, and works wonderfully with my MC218 (see review). However, I recently noticed that it has a habit of switching itself off - initially I thought it had happened ...
  • Pros: Damned cool & fits anywhere
  • Cons: Prone to strange behaviour

Worst phone Ive ever used

hippynet, Ciao
12 December 2000
  • Excerpt: "My T18s is the third phone I've owned and by far the worst. If you read the other reviews here you'll see the good reviews are from people who have just got their T18 and the bad reviews are from those who have owned it for a bit longer. When I first got my T18 I loved it. It was the smallest phone I'd owned, it had the most features, such as voice dialing and vibration alert. I was really happy with it. After a few months I hated it. I really wanted ...
  • Pros: Relatively small size, vibration alert .
  • Cons: Reliability and build quality .
