A simply good phone

  • Excerpt: "Ok, I'm a bit biased here probably, since I almost exclusively ever used Ericsson. I started off with mobile phones about 8 years ago with the GH198 (in case you don't remember those, that was the one with the antennae (sp?) that FOLDED up and down on the side of the handset! I went on to the GH337 - the first one in the style of the more recent one's like the A1018, and that one was a revolution in it's time - small, long battery life and packed ...
  • Pros: Easy, intuitive, reliable, robust
  • Cons: not a fancy gadget

  • Excerpt: "I got my T18 when I upgraded my existing brick like phone with Orange. I had to wait 2 weeks for delivery & a new Sim Card but the phone itself is excellent. It is small and compact with a flip top which automatically answers incoming calls. There are loads of features available such as Divert, Quick dial, Text Messaging, Phone Book, Calculator and my favourite, Voice Dialling. With voice dialling you can assign up to 10 numbers that recognise ...
  • Pros: Voice Dialling
  • Cons: Sometimes freezes momentarily while pressing the keypad

  • Excerpt: "I recently upgraded from an Ericsson PH768 and was very happy with the difference!! This phone is nice and small, but the buttons are not at all fiddly which is very good......I haven't got around to setting up all the voice activated features, but I do appreciated the voice activated answering or rejecting feature, as I have a month old baby, and it means I can have my hands free kit on and answer (or not!) the phone without having to touch the ...

  • Excerpt: "I wanted to get a decent in-Car handsfree kit and I was recommended by a local dealer that this one had one of the best system currently on the market. I used to own a Motorala Star Tac so was already used to the Flip front cover, so no more dialing the police by mistake!!. The phone is compact enough to fit in you shirt breast pocket and light enough to almost forget you've got on it on you. Because I drive alot, the voice activation of 10 ...
  • Pros: Lightweight, Small, Voice Activation

Small and straightforward

  • Excerpt: "I've had a T18s for about 9 months now, and I love the size, the vibrating battery and step ring also make it really discreet. I'm trying to shrink the size of my fingers 'cos the buttons are a bit on the small size but the voice dial more than makes up for this. If you plan to use it in the car, get the Ericsson cradle and use a personal handsfree - set up your voice prompts carefully and you need never touch it. One last feature I love is the automatic ...

  • Excerpt: "After suffering years of poor performance and unreliability from Nokia handsets, switching to Ericsson was a breath of fresh air! In just six months I had 7 replacement Nokia 2110's yet my only complaint with the T18, was a tendancy for the phone to switch itself off, ad this was quickly remedied by rubbing the battery contacts with an eraser! A wonderful little phone with plenty of features, programmable ring tones, voice dialling and an active ...

Great little phone but don't try to use it for SMS.

  • Excerpt: "I got my Ericsson T18s five months ago, at the time it was the best thing I had ever seen. The features were great and the size and weight of the phone made it a sheer joy to use after my old brick-phone (Ericsson A1018). It took about a month before I became sick of using the phone, I was sending in the region of 40 - 50 SMS messages a day and the small buttons became very frustrating. This was compounded by the fact theat the click of the button ...
  • Pros: Small, compact phone with all of the ability of its big brothers .   Older accessories still work .
  • Cons: Small buttons that don't work with every click, a bit heavy .

Best things - small packages

  • Excerpt: "I started using a T18s only a month or so ago - to replace an Ericsson PF768. It is marvellous 'phone which is compact, easy to use and avoids misdialling with the flip front. I have had absolutely no problem with programming and using the voice dial facility which is extremely handy when used with the hands free kit. When I first had an Ericsson, I wasn't at all sure about the strength of the charger/handsfree connections but in practice they are ...
  • Pros: compact and very easy to use

Option of auto light, no light or light on all the time, Option of auto Keylock (after a 10 seconds or so of no use, PIN enter keylock or no lock. 'Active flip' for answering/ending calls or press a button, Voice ...

  • Excerpt: "The thing with Ericsson which is annoying is that unlike Nokia, they tend to go for looks rather than functions. Yeh the phone is very small and everything but when it comes to a signal its one of the worst in the area. You put a Nokia, Motorola and an Ericsson together and Ericsson is last, its really not great on reception. I think they are trying to improve it because if they can then they have the making for a very good phone. As for the T18, ...
  • Pros: vibrate, big display, make your own rings, chat board
  • Cons: abit heavy
