Motorola T2288, I missed this phone
17 April 2006
Excerpt: Thanks for a consumer site like this that enables us to pour out our sentiments on consumer products. 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...
Pros: Simplicity of use, very durable and the size factor
Cons: Quite lacking features by today's (April 2006) standards
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!
Pros: Wap, atleast a little bit smaller than my old phone
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 e-mails.
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.
Excerpt: My contract on my Qualcomm phone was up just over a year ago. I purchased the original one from PrimCo 4 years ago, and signed a 2 year contract with them. After the contract was up, I had the option to get a free phone with a further 2 year contract. This I did. Verizon took over PrimCo, so I called them to check the date when I could end this service. 7th April, 2002. Okay, so what promotions did they have. None whatsoever.
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.
Excerpt: I used this phone for over a year. It was only £30 new on BT cellnet(O2) pay as you go. This really isn’t a bad phone the quick access menus make it very easy get to the features you use the most. It’s also wap not that I ever used it but at the time most wap phones cost a lot more than £30. Its very tough i dropped it downstairs once and it didn’t damage it at all.
Pros: very easy to use, cheap and tough
Cons: very basic, big compared to most phones now .
Excerpt: I bought this for £40, on the Orange network from Argos. I wasn't really looking for WAP, but the phone had it, and was from a make I'd had experience of. I found that it was an easy to use phone, and the wap portal was also well laid out - this depends on your provider, but the Navigation was easy to use, and you can change your WAP provider, but not your homepage - that changes with the Provider.
Pros: Relatively long battery life, easy to use, WAP enabled, cheap(ish - £40 on Pre Pyy)
Excerpt: I have been using the Motorola T2288 mobile phone for around a year, with the Orange network. Previous to this phone I used the Motorola CD930. I liked the ease of use that Motorola gave so decided to get anther. Only reason being I broke the other phone, by dropping it (several times). This phone comes with most of the basic features such as signal and battery level indicators.
Excerpt: I just want to give you a impression,about this komplicated thing. I own the Motorala T2288 now since 4 Months,and I am not happy with it.On the first day I sad wow thats a Mobilphone,and after this view Month my opinion changed. °°Preface°° Before the Motorala I had a Nokia 3310 and I was very spoiled.You can´t imagine how it is to exchange a Nokia to a Motorala.A had maked bad expirences with this Phone and I can´t recommend it.
