  • Excerpt: "This was originally my mum's phone until she got fed up with it and gave it to me. I asked her "What's wrong with it?" Lord knows I shouldn't have asked that question. 5 minutes that question took to answer! So I decided to investigate, I mean, how many companies can you honestly say would DELIBERATELY make a product that just didn't work? I found that it wasn't as bad as I was first expecting, the only problem was, my mum didn't know how to use it ...
  • Pros: lots of stuff to do with it
  • Cons: its huge !

  • Excerpt: "When I first got the phone I was very impressed. It had an excellent screen, the ability to compose your own ringtones and a game similar to Tetris on it - very impressive. Unfortunately, it soon became disappointing. When I used it during a rainy day (which we get a lot of in England), the phone stopped working and made a 'beeping' noise, before turning itself off. I then turned the phone back on without any trouble. I shrugged it off and then ...
  • Pros: Good screen, Composable Ring Tones, Changable covers, Tetris Game
  • Cons: Use it in the rain and it gives up !  !  !

  • Excerpt: "In Ericsson A-2618s there is a set of functions, necessary for today, switching on WAP, besides there is a possibility adding to the phone various equipment, beginning from banal Handsfree and finishing a miniature editing pad SMS. From this set I were interested, however, only a package Mobile Office DI28, which supplements A-2618s by a functional of infrared port and modem. The phone has rather solid dimensions and weight. The buttons of management ...

  • Excerpt: "The Ericsson A2618s was my first mobile and proved to be an excellent buy. Although not a small phone by todays standards, it has a sleek appearence which is inviting to the eye and is really comfortable to hold. The phone, for it's size, is very light, weighing less that the Nokia 3310 which is quite a bit smaller. As the funcions, it has a decent graphical interface which is extremely easy and logical to navigate. Apart from the regular funcions ...
  • Pros: Ease of use, good display, sleek look
  • Cons: Slow running

The VFM Handset

lefox, Ciao
15 March 2001
  • Excerpt: "Out of the 4 mobile phones I've had, this is by far the best one. I had a Motorola m3788e on the Orange OVP tariff and it was faultless until that is, I wasn't earning because I could not afford the bill and not knowing how much it was did not help. The handset was fine if all you wanted a phone that get from A to B but it was lacking in features for me and wasn't brilliantly put together, although the service from Orange was superb. The other 2 phones ...
  • Pros: Build, features, price, styling, easy to use, large & clear screen
  • Cons: I would like to see vibration alert fitted

  • Excerpt: "The funky phone is the one for me! Not only is it stylish, but it has new games, maze and tetris, as well as exceptional functions, making the phone easy to use. I saw this phone advertised on the internet and instantly knew it was great, but at present it is only on contract with BT Cellnet as far as i know and I am not too sure how readily available it is!(as of now i haven't come across it in the shops). It appears to be perfect.It has a fax ...
  • Pros: funky, stylish, top of the range, great games and huge selection of covers
  • Cons: possibly expensive and not easy to find
