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.
Excerpt: The DB2000 was the first ‘proper’ phone I had. When I say this I mean that I had one of the old brick like pay as you go phones prior to this. I got the DB2000 when it first came out and it felt so good to have this in my pocket rather than the old brick phone (it also saved on the ‘is that a phone or are you just pleased to see me’ jokes!).
Pros: Good looking and now very resonably priced .
Excerpt: When it was obvious that my previous Motorola mobile phone was considered so big it was not "de rigeur", I set my sights on choosing a new more sexy, stylish phone, which would suit my image (more like the size of my pocket and wallet!). The vast array of "pay as you go" phones on the market was enough to dazzle even the most ardent fan of telecoms technology, but the model which visually stood out among the others was the NEC DB2000.
Pros: Size, appearance, ring tones, vibrating alert
Excerpt: I bought this phone during the Christmas sale after doing a bit of research on the internet. I knew I wanted the Pay As You Go service, I did not know which provider to choose, I knew I wanted a phone not many other people have. I saw this phone on the internet for £129 on a Pay As You Go package, which I think is a bit steep for any phone! The offer I bought was the NEC DB2000 phone from The Link, with one2one pay as you go service for £50.
Excerpt: As part of my ever 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.
Pros: weight and large screen . Easy to use, small battery
Cons: old shape, long and annoying menu function,damageable
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.
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.
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 looking phone.
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 declined.
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 you ask for?
