Motorola T2288, I missed this phone

raffyboy, Ciao
17 April 2006
  • Excerpt: "...Speaking of sentimental value, the Motorola T2288 was actually my 2nd GSM phone (many analog ones before that) purchased circa 2001 but unfortunately lost it in mid-2004. If I had my way I would still be using it once in a while (I owned a Sony-Ericsson T230 briefly for almost 1 year--its not so easy to use--and currently am settled using a Panasonic X100 to try out new 'technologies' like a camera, polyphonic etc.). The T2288 wasn't top of the line ...
  • Pros: Simplicity of use, very durable and the size factor
  • Cons: Quite lacking features by today's (April 2006) standards

19 August 2004
  • Excerpt: "I woke up on the morning of my birthday in 2001, and what should I recieve, a new mobile phone! Every boys delight at that time.... if it wasnt a brick phone! I was quite pleased with it at first. It had wap capabilities, was smaller and it was new. However, like most Motorolas it was a brick! I was embarassed to make calls with it in public it just really stood out! It looked more like a walky talky than my old mobile phone! There were no games ...
  • Pros: Wap, atleast a little bit smaller than my old phone
  • Cons: Brick, no games, no clock, hard to use

MUST READ REPORT ON MOTOROLA T2288

8 June 2003
  • Excerpt: "The motorola t2288 is quite an interesting phone. It is not a phone for teenagers, I repeat this is not a phone for TEENAGERS. The motorola t2288 does not allow picture message, or logos or even creating or recieving ringtones. However this phone is perfect for adults who do not want a million and one tones, nor do they want thousands of picture messages or logos. Just a basic phone which rings someone with the bonus of being able to send and recieve ...
  • Pros: Internet Access
  • Cons: Poor amount of ringtones

  • Excerpt: "my first phone ever, did the job in that u could phone people and send/recieve txt. but if u want anything else then its prolly best u didnt even think about this phone. there is a very limited number of tones and not one is very good, with no way of downloading or composing any new ones. and the tones even on the loudest setting are still barely hearable when inside a bag/pocket. the signal is very poor, although this can be blamed on my service ...

  • Excerpt: "...important part of this review Motorola Talkabout Model T2288. I had gone with my girlfriend a couple of months earlier, and she got the same phone. I spent a week showing her how to use it, set up phone numbers etc. so I was aware of the features. The guy at the store was extremely helpful. Within 15 minutes I had my phone plus all the extras. Paid nothing and signed up for just 1 year. I had my new telephone number and was all set. All I ...

  • Excerpt: "Having broken down for the third time in as many weeks, and had to push the motorbike to the nearest phone box each time, I thought it was about time that I bought myself a phone to save on the exercise! To explain those confused looks - 2 punctures (lorry shead its load of tacks and it wasn't cleared up properly) and one spark plug failure. Wanting it for emergencies only, I plumped for the cheapest phone I could find, and at just under £60 ...
  • Pros: Cheap and reliable
  • Cons: This is illogical captain

16 November 2001
  • Excerpt: "...it. There is the traditional motorola quick access key, with 9 functions availiable, as well as the VoiceMail quick access key. The quick access menu can be customised from a list of about 15 to the functions that you will use most often, e.g. as I attend school, and my phone has to be quiet, Phone Ringer off was assigned there straight away. Reception is slightly above average, but this was helped by being on a well covered network. The phone ...
