Don't want any fancy stuff - then buy it.

  • Excerpt: A rugged and reliable phone - but then it spends most of its time switched off until I need to make a call. It does lack enough memory but then why am I keeping stuff in the memory. My grandson says the ring tones are naff, but then am I bothered? I serves me for my basic needs.

Just a phone

LUNAH_C, Ciao

  • Excerpt: If you want just a phone this is ideal. I had a motorola phone before this one and never really got to know it well. When I bought this one it was love at first sight. It is so simple to use. If you understand green to go, red to stop then you can use this phone.
  • Pros: Basic, very easy to use .
  • Cons: Can't update it

Philips C12

jodie66, Ciao
25 September 2003
  • Excerpt: Good Points: cheap and cheerful Bad Points: battery charge life and intermitant battery display (does this mean my sim is about to be zapped? it is how the last one went!) also 'Contact your dealer' message which means they've zapped your sim and then the faulty phone diagnosis and O2 to Philips...

Jeanmh, Ciao
30 August 2003
  • Excerpt: I bought a Philips C12 two years ago to use for emergencies only. Since purchasing the phone I have not used more than £50 credit that is how little it has been used yet for no reason it has lost its network connection and re-registering it has the result that you get the message no network...
  • Pros: Cheaper calls
  • Cons: Not reliable

Do not buy the c12

robert_ni..., Ciao
3 June 2003
  • Excerpt: I am sorry to say this but the Philips Savvy C12 must be the worst phone ever built. Yes, that's right even worse than the Motorola 'Brick' I just don't know how people can have the bottle to go into the shop and purchase one of these phones. I would be far, far too embarrased!
  • Pros: Very Durable
  • Cons: Hardly any features

Cheap as chips

Happymama, Ciao
1 February 2003
  • Excerpt: I bought my C12 a three or so years ago - the yellow one, as above. It's still giving sterling service, and the £10 every quarter (£40 a year) pay-as-you-go contract has cost me a grand total of £50.
  • Pros: Very cheap to keep
  • Cons: None whatsoever

  • Pros: Easy to use, ideal first phone
  • Cons: Very basic handset
