  • Excerpt: "...to my review of this Motorola M3788e. This was my very first mobile phone that I got when I was aged about 12. I spied it in an Orange store window and loved it. It was available in 2 colours...black and coconut. I desperately wanted the coconut one as it looked nicer. I few weeks went by and I eventually built up the courage to ask my parents if I could get it for my birthday which was a month away. To my surprise they said yes provided I didn't ...

  • Excerpt: "...for cutting the chip away. The motorola has given me good service over the years with little problems. It is however, very bulky to modern day standards. One major problem that I do find with it is that it is reluctant to work in certain buildings and especially on the underground. I have seen other people using their phones on the underground, but as soon as i go into the station, the signal goes completely. The batteries are also going ...

  • Excerpt: "...3310 and sony CMD-C1) my Motorola "brick" has outlasted all and has been relied on again and again when my others have been sent back to the makers for repairs, of which this one has had none. It has also had the best reception of any other phone i have had and has been able to make phone calls clearly in areas my other phones have not. As a starters first time mobile i would recommend this phone, but it quickly loses appeal against newer phones ...
  • Pros: easy to use, good for a starter mobile, excellent durability
  • Cons: lack of features, has become very dated compared with new phones

  • Excerpt: "...at this minute own a Motorola M3788e but have owned one in the past 6 months and my father has also owned one for nearly 2 years. My father and I both originally bought ours to keep in the glove compartment of the car in case of emergencies. I bought mine in Argos for an acceptable £29.99.

  • Excerpt: "...fashion freak, and so the Motorola m3788e is perfect for me. I got this phone when my old one just gave up the ghost entirely. I'm still not sure why it did so, but it did, and so I had to find a new way to keep in touch in this modern, technology-as-God in which we now live. The phone came as part of an Orange Pay-As-You-Go package, which was by far the best deal I could find - just £30, and £5 credit thrown in (it had to be an Orange phone, because ...
  • Pros: Good for people on a budget; simple to use; easy to navigate menu system .
  • Cons: Not really very stylish; no fancy ringtones or fascias; won't impress any prospective females !

  • Excerpt: Last christmas guess what my Dad got me for christmas, a mobile...of all the phones...he chose the m3788e. For some reason my dad thinks I need a mobile, the real thing is...I don't. I send the occasional message or call the occasional person but I'm not really a heavy user of it. The phone serves all my purposes.
