  • Excerpt: I've owned this phone for some time now, and I have to say that it is a good phone, but it is also a phone that has pros and cons that equal each other. So, when making the decision whether to buy this phone or not, i had to come to realise that the phone i was buying was not one I would be able to...

They keep going wrong

  • 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.
  • 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

  • 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.
  • Pros: Vibrate options, size,voice activation, alarm
  • Cons: Weight, Robustness

good sized handset but fairly heavy

  • 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.
  • Pros: small size
  • Cons: heavy

  • Excerpt: Want a versatile, easy to use phone that can keep you in touch with people all over the world – then the Ericsson T18s is the phone for you. The T18s is a dual band phone weighing only 146g and has a flip key cover that hides all the main buttons when closed.

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...
  • Pros: Looks great, nice and small
  • Cons: Big angled thing on the top !

Excellent Ericsson Car Hands Free

  • 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.
  • Pros: Excellent Ericcson self - fit car kit
  • Cons: phone has a habit of turning itself off

It's quality, not quantity...

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...
  • 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.
  • 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!!
  • Pros: small, easy to carry around
  • Cons: can be unreliable
