Excerpt: I bought this phone in november 99 in an Orange shop. It came with a special promotion, and I payed 7500BEF for it. Features: --------- Vibra-call: No embarassing moments anymore during a meeting, with friends, .. when you forgot to shut down your mobile. 3 minutes voice recorder (memo) Call divert No melody composer, no games (who cares??) No T9 text input No alarm No wap Good points: ====== - Large memory: 200 numbers.
Excerpt: Tme Motorola CD930 looks like an old design as it is large and bulky but the price of £20 more than makes up for it.It isn't short of features either with recordable voice notes and all the usual features of bog standard mobiles. It is quite sturdy and manages to withstand being dropped and even ran over by a Citroen Saxo.This phone would be perfect for people who don't use mobiles except for emergency or for old people as it has volume control so you can turn it up...
Excerpt: As i've been working abroad for the last few years i've had (the luxury of) a company mobile at my disposal. After being back in the UK for a few months, I decided that I needed to look for a personal one. I found it very difficult not having one anymore (funny how you get so used to these gadgets isn't it!). I’ve previously had numerous mobile phones (both company and personal ones) so I had a good idea of the kind of features I would want.
Pros: Vibrates on call, long lasting (standby) battery life
Cons: It isn't the most stylish of phones on the market
Excerpt: I got my mobile for Christmas so have about 6 weeks experience of it. But I do have a lot of knowledge regards these little magic boxes as I used to sell mobiles in the early 1990's when they were just getting popular. In fact this is my fourth mobile, and I am pleased to say it is extremely goo considering the prices involved. Ok so I got mine for nothing but I do know they cost aroun £30 which is a bargain for all the tricks they can do.
Excerpt: Ok, so my last phone broke after I dropped it a couple, well, a few times outside so I received this phone for Christmas. It was totally unexpected and I had never heard of this phone before! It is not what you would call a small mobile but it is definately not a large one, while being very light for it's size too. It has a nice, friendly rounded shape and a cool silver body to it.
Pros: looks, vouchers, charge time with standby etc .
Excerpt: I BOUGHT A VIRGIN MOBILE PHONE THREE MONTHS A GO FROM A VIRGIN MEGASTORE SHOP AND IT COST ME £52.49 AND NOW IT IS ONLY £39.99 WHICH IS ANNOYING... BUT THE PHONE IS VERY GOOD VALUE BECAUSE CALLS ONLY COST 15P PER MINUTE AND 5P A MINUTE AFTER 5 MINUTES. THE V.EXTRAS ARE ALSO VERY GOOD...BUT IT WORKS OUT VERY VERY EXPENSIVE TO CALL OTHER NETWORKS ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT AS DAIR AS BT CELLNET. THE SERVIS PACK NOW COSTS £10 INSTEAD OF £12.49..
Excerpt: My cd930 has been one of the best phones I have owned. I use it on vodaphone and bought as an upgrade. Having used Motorola before, I was already familiar with the menu system used to access the features, which, once you are used to them are very simple. Living and working in a rural area I find this phone, compared to colleagues mainly on Nokia, has an excellent reception and call quality. Motorola supply a pouch as the standard case, which I replaced immediately.
Pros: Good features, good warranty
Cons: Looks so good, everybody else wants to use it .
Excerpt: I've had my CD930 for jsut over a year now, its interference with my monitor at work is sending me crazy - and another thing - it decides to turn itself off every now and then? I have had 2 replacements and this third phone has started to turn itself off aswell, it is too flimsy for my liking.. I'd like to know how much radiation it emits because if i hold it very close to my monitor at work and someone calls it will actually turn the monitor OFF!!!!! - Scary!
Excerpt: I bought this phone because it is different to the Nokia phones that seem to be pressed against most peoples ears these days. Mine is silver and it has a funky little screen which almost glows bright green in the right lighting. It vibrates instead of ringing if you want it to but that is just about the complete list of its appeal. What is missing from this phone is the ‘long as your arm’ list of features which come as standard even on the most basic Nokia.
Excerpt: Ok - so I've only had it a few days, but is this phone groovy or what. Much better than the half brick I used to carry around, light and compact enough not to be a problem , but not so small that you don't notice when it's gone. But enough of all that sensible nonsense. It's blue, no wait it's BLUE!!! And the groovy little glow in the light screen, and the dual size text - just to funky for words.
