No use as a mobile phone

Birdynumn..., Ciao
19 March 2006
  • Excerpt: "This was the second phone I ever bought many years ago and it is the worst phone I have ever had. Lets start with the plus point, its design is great and its large buttons means that even a lardarse like me with my chubby sausage fingers has no trouble what so ever dialing numbers and writing text messages and its one of the few phones that actually look just like a phone but this is where the positives stop. To use this pile of crap as a phone ...
  • Pros: Nice design
  • Cons: Weak and worst reception ever

Avoid the trouser hilarity with the BD2000

Paulwt, Ciao
14 September 2001
  • Excerpt: "...although of course being an NEC model means you won’t get any of the familiar Nokia ones, although this phone does have a vibrate feature. There is also the ability to set different ring tones for different people so you know who is calling without even looking at the phone. Battery life competes well with other phones in its class although differs remarkably under different conditions and thus is hard to quantify. A possitive feature for an ...
  • Pros: Good looking and now very resonably priced .
  • Cons: Bad speaker quality .

NEC...N E TIME

Cardiff31, Ciao
1 May 2001
  • Excerpt: "...among the others was the NEC DB2000. The thing that struck me first was the trendy silver fascia of the handset and its small size. The functions of the model are also desirable - varying ring tones and volumes, easy pick up of voicemail, vibrating call function - they were just the few. The price of the handset, when taking into account its appearance and the amount of functions it supports, was also reasonable. I have now had my phone for nearly ...
  • Pros: Size, appearance, ring tones, vibrating alert
  • Cons: Cannot download ring tones

I got a bargain from The Link shop

Lidless_E..., Ciao
27 February 2001
  • Excerpt: "...offer I bought was the NEC DB2000 phone from The Link, with one2one pay as you go service for £50. This £50 included £30 of free calls (i.e. They gave me an additional £30 of credit when I credited my own £30). THIS WAS A TOTAL BARGAIN as the phone has a silent vibrating alert, the only other phone I know of that rivals the deal I got is the Phillips Savvy for about £40, but it looks daft and I should imagine every kid got one for Christmas!! I ...
  • Pros: Price, Style, Individuality, Slient vibrating alert
  • Cons: Um, Um, Um  -  It can't read some NOKIA only text Messages (pictures), Choice of 8 ring tones but you can't create your own (What do you want for 20 quid?)

NEC DB2000 Review

paz_t, Ciao
16 February 2001
  • Excerpt: "...growing collection of mobiles, the NEC DB2000 was one of my best purchases. With its stylish silver casing and helpful black buttons, this phone is packed with features that you'd associate as 'mobile only'. By this I mean there are no fancy games or picture messaging, leaving the DB2000 with a reputation of being a 'direct' mobile phone. This handset will suite 'casual' users of a mobile, because of it's simple to use configurations which make this ...
  • Pros: weight and large screen .  Easy to use, small battery
  • Cons: old shape, long and annoying menu function,damageable

Dont Buy 2000

RichardE, Ciao
12 February 2001
  • Excerpt: "I have owned one of these little phones for a year and a half. This was my 2nd phone on One 2 One and was actually an improvement on my Motorola C520, which I used for 1 week. I’m not going to be too sceptical, because I don’t think people realise that a bad Network and phone combination can make things worse. When I first saw the DB2000, it was very original and pretty in design and very compact even compared to the latest phones now. Good ...
  • Pros: User Friendly, Features
  • Cons: Reception, Faulty Software .

sexy and stylish

Gemgemmin..., Ciao
9 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "I wanted this phone as soon as I saw it for its stylish and sexy looks. With its silver casing, black sides and back and black buttons the phone looks better than a lot of phones on the market today and is very original. The phone is compact and very slim but holds a whole host of facilities. The other good thing about the phone is that not everyone you see has it held to their ear! The phone itself has a wide range on functions and specifications. ...
  • Pros: groovy baby yeah
  • Cons: can't use the buttons any more

Nice but quite fragile

INLung, Ciao
29 December 2000
  • Excerpt: "The NEC DB2000 is a very stylish phone: slim, light, silver. It has a large screen, which is very useful for reading and writing SMS messages. It's functionality is also very good, with a thorough menu. It also has a vibrate function which is very useful and saves a lot of embarrasment in those certain situations. A seperate button for the address book comes in very handy aswell. However there are also quite a few bad points about this nice ...

Nice when new but better stuff out now

daveyw, Ciao
5 December 2000
  • Excerpt: "I got this phone as an upgrade around 12 months ago. At the time it was one of the best looking phones around and still one of the slimmest. It has an easy to use menu system and a good range of functions including vibrating alert. The thing that has impressed me most is the battery life - quoted at around 300 minutes talktime and probably about right. Standby time is also very good. Mine gets extensive use and the battery life still hasn't really ...
  • Pros: Nice looking, good battery life .

Fragile style

paulconby, Ciao
2 December 2000
  • Excerpt: "I've had this phone for over a year, it's both sleek and stylish and generally gets comments from people. My only problem with this phone is that it had a spell of faults - firstly the well known battery click but then it stopped picking up any signal. This fault was 'fixed' 4 times by NEC, and only on their last attempt could i actually use it! Now its been working well, even after a year of sitting in my pocket - what other durability testing could ...
  • Pros: Slim, vibrates, stylish
  • Cons: Faults !  !
