4-0 out of 5 stars Trusty little guy
I've had this phone for over two years, travelling, dropping, and using it under lots of different situations.No back-light troubles or anything.

The only reason it doesn't get a 5th star is that its reception is not the greatest.My wife has the Vox 8500 and the signal strength is consistently better on hers than mine.But still, it's never left me stranded.

BTW, I got a chrome face-plate for mine and the blue light with the chrome surround still looks great!

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad Buy
I loved this phone, but the screen went blank after about 7 months and i could never read anything unless it showed up for a second, but i assumed this was becuz i had dropped it a few times so i went out and bought another... well about 7 months later again, the screen is blank, the backlight comes on and it works fine, good clearity during calls but no words on screen so i cant tell what i'm doing or who just called me or whatever... and the ringtones arent the greatest either... Now days, buying this phone is useless considering all the new and improved phones that come out every other day ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A great phone!
I have had mine for about three years now; they don't make them anymore and that made me feel obsolete.But I like this phone; easy to navigate, nice blue background and only needed features, no fluff stuff.I recently traded up to a new cell phone and plan and have given this one to my 15 year old son.It's got enough games and ringtones to keep him occupied with it for awhile.This is a very reliable little phone.I have not had anything happen to it such as fading or lines on the screen, etc. as other reviewers have.LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

5-0 out of 5 stars Lets Be Fair
The thing I've noticed about cell phones is that they're a lot like shoes. Generally speaking you get what you pay for.
That being said, it's important to remember why you're buying a cell phone. If you want a slick little number with a nice metalic casing, gameboy quality graphics, and a thousand and one features then no, this is not the phone for you.
If say you're an active teenager, or someone who tends to lose and abuse cell phones and other small things that need to be carried at all times, or hitman that needs a nice throw away phone with someone elses name on it, then you've found your phone.
The reception is great, the plan is simple and non-invasive, the features are few but ideal, and most of all it's just a good knock around phone. No, you're not going to have it forever. And NO, you're not going to be impressing the ladies with it. But if you're looking at any of the phones in this price range then it's highly likely that you already know how you're going to use it, and neither of these things is a huge priority.
This phone is worth the money because it's designed for people who know that this is not the only one they're ever going to have.

2-0 out of 5 stars Screen WILL go out.
A wonderful phones at first, but it not like its entry level sibling the Kyocera 2119 (or 2135) which is very durable.

The screen goes wacko after 1 year, you have to press HARD an the VM logo to make it go back on.

The reception is wonderful and it works everywhere. If you are using this as a teenager's phone or a backup, its okay. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

This rugged phone is designed to go where you go and keep you in touch through thick and thin. Featuring mobile messaging, wireless Web capabilities, and an internal GPS position locater, the Motorola i58sr is an excellent choice for both business and personal use. And of course, it supports Nextel's legendary Direct Connect walkie-talkie functions so you can connect with people in your work and personal network at the push of a button. And with a wrap-around rubber bumper, it's the perfect rugged companion to a rough and tumble day.

Design
Like other Nextel phones, the i58sr is built tough for construction and utilities industry users, or for anyone who needs a rugged wireless phone. The i58sr's candybar design features a black and white, backlit LCD that displays time, call information, battery and signal strength, emails, address book entries, wireless web content and more. The trademark Direct Connect and menu scrolling functions can be controlled from the side of the phone. A standard 2.5mm headset jack is also provided, and a multi-directional selection button controls most of the phone's user-friendly menus and options.

Calling Features
The i58sr's built-in address book can store up to 250 contacts for quick and easy management of phone numbers and email addresses. A vibrating alert can be set when you want to receive calls and messages in quiet or very loud situations. Voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names. The phone supports up to 20 voice dialing contacts. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear and a three-way calling feature lets you combine two ongoing phone calls into one conversation.

One of the key features of any Nextel phone is support for Nextel's Direct Connect walkie-talkie technology. The i58sr fully supports the service, which allows for one-touch conversations with anyone else on a Nextel phone. It's like having a CB radio with enough range to cover all of North America.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
The i58sr features support for two-way mobile-to-mobile or mobile-to-email text messaging (Nextel messaging charges apply). T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

Getting on the Internet anywhere is easy with the i58sr, as well. Nextel's optional Nextel Online package allows you to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content on your phone. Nextel Online also features games, realtime news and sports updates, virtual address books, and more-- all delivered to your Nextel phone.

The i58sr ships with a calendar application that lets you book meetings, plan events, and set alarms that will automatically turn on the phone if needed. There's also a voice recording application that lets you record up to three minutes of audio. A time and date clock are included, as is a GPS location function that can pinpoint your location via latitude and longitude.

Entertainment
The phone runs Java-powered applications and games, both of which can be downloaded from the Nextel Online service.

Vital Statistics
The Motorola i58sr weighs 6.5 ounces and measures 5.25 x 2.1 x 1.25 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4.5 hours of digital talk time, and up to 125 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the IDEN 800 frequency. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Phone
Boasting over 4 hours of available talk time battery life, the i58sr is a favorite.Available in Yellow/Black or Black/Grey two tones, this phone comes equipped with Speakerphone, One Touch Direct, and is GPS enabled. But had ordered it off of Nextels site.They even gave me a code that saved me $50.00.Here it is for you all to share (CL897L) case sensitive.On the shopping cart page.It is like an invoice thing.But I think it is a very good choice.You will enjoy the phone.

3-0 out of 5 stars Yin & Yang: Wake up Motorola!
The Good: Finally, somebody else realizes the benefit of a rubber coating and its durability. Panasonic's Duramax was my favorite, but it's discontinued. I'm surprised no one makes rubber snap on covers for all the phones. Drop the phone, chances are good it won't break. Moisture resistant (not clothes washer resistant, neither was my Duramax). Scratches nil. A good work phone for tough environments.

The built in speaker phone is great. I especially like the adjustable font size, which sold me on this phone. Color is prettier, but what good is it if I can't see the text? The bland screen makes up for appearance with function...good contrast for seeing even in direct sunlight.

The Not So Good: The speed dial numbers are set automatically and cannot be user defined without erasing the entire entry and info for the person/number auto-assigned to that specific speed dial number. You assign the speed dial number, and it erases whatever occupied it, completely. The logic of this completely evades me. All data for the deleted entry has to be re-entered. Also, every number gets assigned a speed dial number. No choice.

The larger extended life battery was standard with my phone. The design doubles the thickness of the phone. Each battery size requires a different battery cover, most of which are not rubber coated, and sold separately from each battery. Drop the phone on the backside with these covers, it will break. If you have several batteries, plan on having to keep track of the appropriate cover that goes with it. More things to lose.

So far I cannot get the long life battery to last 1 day, with minimal use. The advertised rated talk time is nowhere near reality. I've bought a smaller battery and smaller cover and testing the standby and talk times. May be the long life battery I received is almost DOA.

The battery can be overcharged and damaged, and the charger provided does not detect this and shut off. Aftermarket chargers claim they protect the battery from this.

Bottom Line: You want a very basic durable working person's phone, this is a good one. You want pretty and color and small with lots of ring tones and gizmos, this is not.

Lots of decent accessories available. Car charger is a must.

Wish Motorola would fix the speed dial software, such a basic thing on most all phones. The battery/cover designs are ridiculous. Should be one battery cover for all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Well
I have had this phone for about a year now.My husband is very careless with his phones (always dropping them, leaving them in the wrong places) and so far, this phone has lasted with him.The only reason I gave it a 4 is the phone is bulky and not very attractive.Also it does not work in some basements and areas at my school. ...

163. Nokia 5190 Phone (T-Mobile)
by Nokia
list price: $199.99
(price subject to change: see help)
Asin: B00004W4B9
Catlog: Wireless
Manufacturer: Nokia
Sales Rank: 2583
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Amazon.com

The hugely popular Nokia 5190 is a lightweight personal phonewith impressive talk and standby time that's loaded with a number ofsimple-to-learn features. With its changeable faceplates, 35 differentringer tones, fax and e-mail capabilities, and ever-increasing world of accessories, the 5190 isdesigned for fun, general-purpose use. Furthermore, the5190's dual-band/tri-mode operation ensures you'll be able to receivecellular service anywhere it's available.

Weighing in at 5.2 ounces(including battery), the 5190 measures 5.2 inches high, 1.4 incheswide, and 0.7 inches deep, not counting a stubby antenna that extendsanother 0.7 inches. As a moderate-weight, midsize phone, the 5190 ishighly portable. It's also extremely rugged in typical mobile phoneenvironments--including being thrown into bags and cases andoccasionally dropped on the ground.

Four buttons handle most of themenu navigation: a hefty button in the middle that Nokia calls the Navikey, up and down arrow buttons that control volume during calls, and akey marked "C" for "clear." Menu navigation is very intuitive. If youtap the Navi key, the first of a series of graphical menu items popsup. Hit the Navi key again to drill down to options within the menu ortap the up or down arrow keys to choose a different menu. The top-levelmenu choices are phone book, messages (SMS and voice mail alerts), calllog, settings (for calls, phone, and security), call forwarding, games(Memory, Snake, and Logic), clock, tones, and keypad lock. The brightlybacklit display works well with the control keys to simplify findingand making choices. In text mode, five 16-character lines aredisplayed. And as a bonus, the 5190 is shipped with a Jabra EarSet for hands-free use.

If you like distinctive ringing tones, you'll be satiatedwith the 5190, which lets you select from 35 preprogrammed tones toamuse or annoy yourself and others. Set your phone to play reveille onincoming calls and see who salutes, or choose "The Mexican Hat Dance"to get your feet moving. While there's no internal vibration mode, anoptional vibrating battery is available--a pleasant break from the 30ring tones, perhaps. The 100-name phone book is relatively small,compared to other phones. Then again, the phone is truly designed forpersonal use, so it doesn't necessarily need to have an advancedphone's capacious phone book. Seven numbers can be assigned one-touchdialing locations--to dial one, you simply press and hold thecorresponding key (2 through 8).

The Nokia 5190 has the usual--butstill impressive--array of standard call and messaging features. Ifsupported by your carrier, you can use this phone with caller ID, callwaiting, call forwarding, and voice mail alerts. A call historymaintains the last 10 dialed numbers, 10 most recently received calls,and 10 missed calls. The phone supports two-way SMS text messaging, butis not WAP- or Internet-enabled.

There are four types of basicsecurity with the Nokia 5190: different call restriction modes, phonelock, and access code storage. There is no standard method ofconnecting the 5190 to a PC or other device. While this phone doesn'thave a standard headset jack, options abound for hands-free use, aswell as a universe of compatible accessories, from car connection kitsto the aforementioned faceplates. Also, the 5190 can be tethered to a pcor other computing device for data transmission.

The 5190's NiMH battery is ratedto last for an impressive maximum 195 minutes of digital talk time and200 hours of digital standby time. In our testing, we achieved 180minutes of digital talk time and over 225 hours of digital standbytime. And it only took two hours for the phone to recharge.

Pleasantand even fun to use, the Nokia 5190 makes menu navigation a breeze.Choose your favorite faceplate color and ringer tone and shock theworld! --Testing and evaluation by Brown Consulting Associates

Pros:

  • Portable; intuitive to use
  • 5-line screen
  • Hundreds of changeable faceplates available
  • Huge range of Nokia and third-party accessories

Cons:

  • Lacks standard vibration mode
  • Not Web-enabled

How We Tested Battery-Talk/Standby Time

When reading our reviews, you should view the test results of mobile-phone battery talk time and standby time as relative information only. Many variables, including carrier signal strength at your location, signal consistency (including incoming and outgoing calls), display and ringer settings, and battery charging methods and history, will affect performance. When handset manufacturers and mobile phone carriers list talk-time and standby-time ratings, they usually include disclaimers about variable performance and often refer to the times they publish as maximum times. Some quote expected battery life ranges, and in this case you're probably safe to assume you'll experience at least the minimum rated range. Note that manufacturers of dual-mode digital and analog handsets publish battery-life rates for both digital and analog modes, as analog mode consumes much more power than digital mode.

Our Tests: We tested digital-mode talk and standby times with each phone. Prior to each test, we fully charged the phone's battery according to the manufacturer's directions. To test digital-phone talk time, we turned the phone on, established a digital carrier signal, dialed a number in our test lab, and, when the call rang through, took the receiving phone's handset off the hook. When all went well, we didn't do anything else except record the time when the phone died. In a couple of cases, the phones lost the signal and dropped the calls. If we were right there and could redial, we did so immediately and continued running the test. Otherwise, we halted the test, recharged the battery, and started the test over. Assuming consistent carrier-signal strength, this test should represent best-case talk time. And it's worth noting that several phones' talk-time performance significantly exceeded the manufacturers' ratings.

To test digital-phone standby time, we turned the phone on, established a carrier signal, and left the phone in standby mode. We checked the phone every few hours (for what was often days on end) until the phone finally cut out. Since no outgoing or incoming calls occurred during testing and because the phone was not moved, this method should represent best-case standby time, again assuming consistent carrier signal strength. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Becky (in Atlanta)
I wanted a PDA Phone w/Palm OS.I did lots of research and finally I purchased my "like new" Tungsten W from Amazon's market place for its "relatively" attractive price.Within a month, the phone failed (Palm OS was OK).I have to send it in to for repair.Somehow, my serial number was associated to a different model of Palm.So they sent me a wrong one and I have to do the exchange again.I was very unhappy about the mix up and delay.

Because it did not come with a headphone, so it took some time for me to research and finally picked "Ternary Flip Cover", which allow me to use the PDA more like a regular cell phone.However, the answer button stop working after 4 or 5 months.It is getting very cracklely when I use the phone.I just ordered a Nokia head phone from Amazon a few weeks ago but it won't ship until May.

It only came with a USB cable rather than a cradle. (Not sure if a new one comes with a cradle?)The little plastic parts are broken off.I once tried a charger from Belkin but I was disappointed that it did not fit the Tungsten W very well.

My Tungsten W frustrates me increasingly.It is locking up a lot when I try to use the phone.In turn, it drops my calls.It even reset itself quite often.I am tempted to switch back to my old Motorola but I love the Palm OS.I am torned.

In a nut shell, I would give the Palm OS on Tungsten W 5 stars, but I only give 1 star to the phone.

leesea...
AT&T and Cingular in merge, it work great. the speed is fancy on Web Pro 2.1. If complain about Palm 4 OS, simple get Tungsten W 1.0 update to get 4.1.1, it improve much better and less problem and fair speed.

A wireless customer....
Your "MINUSES" are some wrong.... There is pop-up notification of SMS messages. There is graffiti area, if install Jot which allow you to do graffiti on screen, keep practice and it getting much comfortable. I still like use keypad than rather graffiti. :)

"You have to delete the SMS outbox and inbox messages one by one"
It's pretty normal for almost every mobile, stop whine about it, you should be happen if you accident delete whole thing.

Only thing I complain about these Tungsten W... the software from website at PalmOne offer Update Tungsten W 1.0 which avaiable only on Mac OS 9.x, not OS X support, so, I had to go to my friend's PC (Windows XP) in order to get whole Palm OS update on W.

2-0 out of 5 stars Worked, but not Durable
I bought this device because I wanted to have a PDA and phone in one single unit. It worked well for a while, then the ear jack slot would not work. So I was constrained to use only the PDA function. Within about 6 months of use, I observed the battery would run down quickly. Presently, I cannot get it to come on; and I bought it early 2004. During the time it worked, it was cool, but it appears it cannot take the kind of rigors expected of such a device. Believe me, I am not a careless person.

1-0 out of 5 stars Run and hide. Don't let the palm man get you!
I bought one of these things 4 months ago. It broke. Palm won't fix it. Palm want's 100 bucks to replace it. Palm wants me to use a on line form to pay up front and start a repair order. Palms on line repair order cgi script doesn't work (makes you wonder who does the programing on the palms. Palm says write back to us and we will start a SRO (service repair order). Did that about 4 weeks ago, haven't heard a word.

In short

The worst warrenty and the worst support of any company I have ever delt with.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dont Wait- BUY THIS PALM PILOT!!
This is the best Palm Pilot on the market today. This is reccomended to all long time Palm fans. Yes, it is a mobile office! Just to show the mobility of this product, I am writing this entire review on the thumb keyboard! The Hi-Resolution screen is absoloutely unbeatable. I LOVE THE PALM TUNGSTEN W!!

12/19 UPDATE
I am only a 12 year old boy, and now I admit my general compliments were a bit premature. The contact between the SIM receptors on the palm is FAULTY. The door is loose and if held screen side up, sometimes it says the sim could not be found, so then the phone turns off and it has to find the sattelite all over and blah blah blah. On my previous Samsung flip-phone,the SIM holster held the SIM to the recievers, something those stupid engineers at Palm should have immitated. The only reason to open your wallet for this Palm is for the phone, and if that gets busted, why not save a couple hundred bucks and get the much faster better OS running Tungsten E. Amazon wont let me take back my 5 star rating so just let me say I give 2 stars. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Portable Office
I get a bazillion corporate emails a day and I've gotten pretty sick of hauling the laptop home every evening and on weekends just to keep up. I knew a BlackBerry was a good solution but I had no idea how productive/addictive they were. (I guess they call them CrackBerries for a reason.)

I had an opportunity to try three different BlackBerries. The Cingular 6280 (screen too small), the Cingular 7280 (color screen was hard to read and it was too small) and the T-Mobile 6710. I stuck with the 6710 for the obvious reason. The screen size! It's perfect and very easy to read. The larger screen makes reading emails or the whole calender, especially in agenda view and browsing WAP websites a breeze.

Phone conversations are also crystal clear with no volume issues.

It also comes with a Desktop Cradle (neither Cingular BB came with a cradle). Only complaint is the cradle is RS232 instead of USB.

The battery life is also supurb.

All in all, it's an awesome device and it doesn't leave my side.

Amazon.com Product Description

This rugged phone is designed to go where you go and keep you in touch through thick and thin. Featuring mobile messaging and wireless Web capabilities, the Motorola i35s is an excellent choice for both business and personal use. And of course, it supports Nextel's legendary Direct Connect walkie-talkie functions so you can connect with people in your work and personal network at the push of a button. And with a wrap-around rubber bumper, it's the perfect rugged companion to a rough and tumble day.

Design
Like other Nextel phones, the i35s is built tough for construction and utilities industry users, or for anyone who needs a rugged wireless phone. The i35s' candybar design features a black and white, backlit LCD that displays time, call information, battery and signal strength, emails, address book entries, wireless web content and more. The trademark Direct Connect and menu scrolling functions can be controlled from the side of the phone. A standard 2.5mm headset jack is also provided, and a multi-directional selection button controls most of the phone's user-friendly menus and options.

Calling Features
The i35s' built-in address book can store up to 250 contacts for quick and easy management of phone numbers and email addresses. A vibrating alert can be set when you want to receive calls and messages in quiet or very loud situations. Voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names. The phone supports up to 20 voice dialing contacts. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear and a three-way calling feature lets you combine two ongoing phone calls into one conversation.

One of the key features of any Nextel phone is support for Nextel's Direct Connect walkie-talkie technology. The i35s fully supports the service, which allows for one-touch conversations with anyone else on a Nextel phone. It's like having a CB radio with enough range to cover all of North America.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
The i35s features support for two-way mobile-to-mobile or mobile-to-email text messaging (Nextel messaging charges apply). T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

Getting on the Internet anywhere is easy with the i35s, as well. Nextel's optional Nextel Online package allows you to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content on your phone. Nextel Online also features realtime news and sports updates, virtual address books, wireless instant messaging, and more-- all delivered to your Nextel phone.

Vital Statistics
The Motorola i35s weighs 8.71 ounces and measures 5.00 x 1.90 x 1.06 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 2.5 hours of digital talk time, and up to 108 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the IDEN 800 frequency. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

Early Adopters Pick:March 2003One of the most-feature packed cell phones in the world, the P800 integrates a slick PDA, digital camera, MP3 player, and a MPEG-4 video player into an elegant package.

Sony Ericsson’s long-awaited smartphone is here and there’s no question that the P800 lives up to its pre-release hype. The body is a little clunky for using the phone features, but the bulk can be excused when you consider that the P800 integrates a tri-band GSM phone, Symbian-based PDA, digital camera, MP3 audio player, and MPEG-4 video player into one handheld unit—and does it very well.

At first glance, the P800 appears to have a small screen and few features besides dialing and viewing your call list. However, flip down the translucent blue plastic keypad and a full 40-by-61-millimeter screen with a loaded menu is revealed. The buttons on the flip-down keypad are tiny and difficult to fully depress so we recommend accessing the phone features from the touchscreen with the stylus. This makes dialing on the run more inconvenient, but the touchscreen functionality is much more polished and impressive. For those who prefer to only use the touchscreen, the flip is detachable. A trim panel included with the phone replaces the flip for a clean appearance. Accessing the your contacts is easily facilitated with the jog dial, keeping all your phone numbers quickly at hand.

The P800’s integrated digital camera is simple to use—just aim the CommuniCam at your subject and press the Cam button on the right side of the phone to release the shutter. Photos can be assigned to a contact in the phone book; doing so will enable picture caller id for incoming calls. Images can also be sent to friends’ email addresses or phones that are equipped to handle images. In our tests, e-mailing an image to our laptop was instantaneous. This smartphone’s 12 MB of internal memory can store about 100 photos at the best quality level (640 x 480) and double that for lesser quality photos. An additional 16 MB removable Memory Stick Duo ups the ante, providing additional storage space for more pictures, data, and applications. Max resolution on the CommuniCam is 0.3 megapixels, and it lacks a built-in flash. However, it’s great for taking spur of the moment shots or close up images. In comparing images taken with the P800 against those taken on competing camera phones, we found them to be a bit more grainy and with slightly less color saturation.

MP3s were easy to load onto the P800 and transfer speed was a few minutes per file—about what we’d expect. We tested the volume on an MP3 of Fred Eaglesmith’s Carmelita while driving on a noisy highway and found that this phone can really crank the tunes. The sound is pretty sharp when using the phone’s built-in speaker, but a little muddied when listening through the included headphones. A pre-loaded video clip showcases the wide range of motion and sound that the P800 can handle. We were impressed with the crispness of a child’s laugh and the boom of an announcer’s voice on a movie trailer. The fast movements in the video clip are easy to follow but, similar to the issue with photos, the picture lacks vivid color on the 12-bit display and is a bit fuzzy.

The PDA functions of the P800 are integrated very nicely. The P800 comes with a docking station to sync up information with a desktop computer, or you can use either the built-in IR or Bluetooth connection. Resting the phone in the docking station took a bit of practice, as the phone rocks back into position. There is a convenient notch to store the stylus in as well. The calendar, task list, and jotter are easy to populate using the excellent handwriting recognition tool, or a virtual keyboard as an alternative. We were able to write notes and schedule appointments pretty quickly with both. Installation of the included software suite was straightforward and successfully synched information between the phone and our laptop. The PC Suite software only works with Windows 2000, Me, and XP so Windows 98 users will want to wait for an update before purchasing this smartphone.

The P800 has a multi-functional browser that allows Internet access and supports e-mail and MMS. A button on the right side of the phone gets you right to the browser and while connection time is not swift it’s comparable to that of competing phones. There are four games included with the phone: Chess, Solitaire, Men In Black 2:Alien Pursuit, and Stunt Run. The first two are basically what you would expect, and the second two are pretty capable Java-based shooting and driving games. The large touchscreen lends itself very well to this application, and many more games & applications are available for download via the Internet. Additional P800 goodies include support for animated screensavers, 10 preloaded wallpaper images, and 16 rich polyphonic ring tones.

This phone is designed to appeal to the business set, but the ideal owner for this phone will be an early adopter with a craving for the latest elegant innovations in smartphones.

How We Tested Battery Talk/Standby Time

When reading our reviews, you should view the test results of mobile-phonebattery talk time and standby time as relative information only. Many variables,including carrier signal strength at your location, signal consistency(including incoming and outgoing calls), display and ringer settings, andbattery charging methods and history, will affect performance. When handsetmanufacturers and mobile phone carriers list talk-time and standby-time ratings,they usually include disclaimers about variable performance and often refer tothe times they publish as maximum times. Some quote expected battery liferanges, and in this case you're probably safe to assume you'll experience atleast the minimum rated range. Note that manufacturers of dual-mode digital andanalog handsets publish battery-life rates for both digital and analog modes, asanalog mode consumes much more power than digital mode.

Our Tests: We tested digital-mode talk and standby times with each phone.Prior to each test, we fully charged the phone's battery according to themanufacturer's directions. To test digital-phone talk time, we turned the phoneon, established a digital carrier signal, dialed a number in our test lab, and,when the call rang through, took the receiving phone's handset off the hook.When all went well, we didn't do anything else except record the time when thephone died. In a couple of cases, the phones lost the signal and dropped thecalls. If we were right there and could redial, we did so immediately andcontinued running the test. Otherwise, we halted the test, recharged thebattery, and started the test over. Assuming consistent carrier-signal strength,this test should represent best-case talk time. And it's worth noting thatseveral phones' talk-time performance significantly exceeded the manufacturers'ratings.

To test digital-phone standby time, we turned the phone on, established acarrier signal, and left the phone in standby mode. We checked the phone everyfew hours (for what was often days on end) until the phone finally cut out.Since no outgoing or incoming calls occurred during testing and because thephone was not moved, this method should represent best-case standby time, againassuming consistent carrier signal strength.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good phone, average PDA

I have had this phone for about a year and a half.I bought it because I didnt want to carry a phone and pda in my pocket.The phone is good, as good as any other phone.With a handsfree, the volume is excellent but without the handsfree, not so great.Reception wise, its good but not as good as most Nokia phones. I know a friend who lives in a remote area who has trouble with it but doesnt have trouble with the Nokia phones.

The best part about the phone is the ability to write on the screen - better than the Palm pilot series - i have got so used to writing on the phone that i can write almost at normal speed.I just use my fingernails to write in fact.

The cover of the phone is problematic - the buttons on the phone numbers are hard and not so easy to press.the cover rests on the sides of the phone by two little knobs that jut out - these have broken off twice - the cover then doesnt work because the buttons are no longer aligned with the touchscreen - i know a friend of mine had the same problem.

The camera is easy to use but Im not sure who wants to have a camera with this kind of resolution - its good for kicks and if your somewhere and absolutely have to capture something and dont have a regular camera handy. For the business user, cell phone companies should drop the camera from the phones.

The syncing with outlook is a major problem - when i synced it, all 2000 odd email addresses on my outlook loaded here - though i have bought extra storage, the phone takes about 5 minutes to load if its switched off and put on again.

I have not figured out the email and Im not sure I want to install it if the address book syncing is any indication - i would love to have a blackberry type facility with new emails coming into the gadget automatically but im worried that if i sync the emails, several thousand emails will land into the phone and jam the thing.

I enjoy the writing on the screen bit and the pda functions - i can have a huge address book and can dial or message out from the contacts folder.

the sms facility is wonderful - I can store over 5000 messages whereas with most regular cellphones, its about 30 or so.

Overall, if (a) you want to have a phone cum PDA; (b) are not interested in accessing email the way it works with blackberry; (c) want to write on the screen rather than use miniscule keypads; then this phone is worth it.I would rather however look at Sony Ericson's later offerings and see if they provide the blackberry facility.

4-0 out of 5 stars The phone is great but T-mobile service area is lacking
I have had this phone for roughly 1 year. I find the phone to be a very good phone and a average PDA. I enjoy many of the phone features such as bluetooth which works well with the jabba bt headset and outlook synchro. The ring associations with contacts I love and I also use it to retrieve smtp email. All of which work flawlessly if I am in a Tmobile area.

I highly recommend this phone or the upgraded P900

4-0 out of 5 stars What a phone!
It almost has it all. I like the cam, PDA, the browser, MP3 player with the unlimitted storage space thanks to the Duo Stick. When I finish palying with all the toys that this phone has, I simply download more fun things from the different vendors, like a video capturing software, TV remote control, unlimitted games, etc. The only 2 weaknesses in this phone are the price and the key pad, but it's detachable.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good mobile Phone
p800 is a good mobile phone,but service is poor.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Phone...Poor Service
Since I travel to Europe often, I purchased this so I can swap SIM cards between countries. It works great in the UK, Iceland and Germany but T-Mobile's coverage in the Hampton Roads, VA is still in its infancy.I've also noted in other parts of the US that I travel, coverage is less than desirable. I think T-Mobile needs to spend more money on towers and less on advertisements.I'd have to give the phone 5 stars, and T-Mobile only one star. ... Read more

If you're looking for a full-featured, rugged, and extremely portable digital phone to use all over the world, the Motorola Timeport L7089 may fit the bill. This classy, slim phone weighs just 4 ounces with battery and features intuitive control keys and a superclear display that aids operation with well-organized menus. With support for three GSM bands (900, 1800, and 1900 GHz), the Timeport L7089 may be more phone--and more expensive--than casual users need. But for demanding users, particularly international travelers, this one is a winner.

The L7089 measures 5 by 1.75 by 0.8 inches and has a stubby 1-inch antenna. The phone is small enough that you can operate it with one hand, using your fingers to cradle it as you press keys and buttons with your thumb. A swivel-style belt clip is included with the phone, but the phone is small enough that you can comfortably carry it in a pocket and sturdy enough that you won't be overly worried about harming it. The L7089 is bundled with a Jabra EarSet and three international plugs for the AC adapter/charger.

The bright, backlit display with three lines of variable-size text (15 characters maximum per line) and has status icons on a fourth line at the top. Prompts for menu or navigation options appear in small letters along the bottom of the display. The prompts print directly above the Clear (marked "C") key and OK key. Other buttons include a vertical roller-bar key to navigate menus and text, a message button marked with an envelope icon, and a go-back and quick-access key labeled with an up arrow. On the left side, you'll find two volume control buttons and a smart button that launches the phone book. On the right side, at the base of the antenna, is a voice recorder start button. There are 11 ringer tones plus a vibrate mode. The phone book can hold 100 numbers, the SIM card (if supported by the carrier) holds 155, and you can store another 40 numbers in a special fixed list for when you want to limit the phone's use to specific numbers. Any 25 numbers stored in the phone can be assigned Voice Tags for voice dialing. Although this feature is technically supported by the carrier rather than the phone, the L7089 is well set up to support the feature, and we found it quick and easy to use.

Advanced features are explained in the user's manual. The manual's font is so small, however, that while it gets high marks itself for portability, tired eyes might wish for easier reading. If you press the quick-access key, 10 common operations are displayed with an array of icons for such operations as changing service bands, muting the phone, toggling the vibration mode, and reading messages. You can use any of the 25 possible Voice Tags to launch quick-access operations instead of phone-book numbers.

The L7089's call-management and security-features list reads like a phone fantasy wish list. Basically, if your GSM carrier has a service (except Internet access) this phone supports it. From conference calling to caller ID and call forwarding to voice-mail alerts, this Motorola does it all. It supports two-way SMS messages and can be set to receive broadcast messages or alerts, if enabled by the carrier.

The L7089's voice-recorder feature is convenient and certainly easy to use, but its 3-minute capacity restricts it to short notes. A simple press of the record button starts and stops the recording, while the remaining available time counts down on the display.

In addition to phone and keypad locking, the Timeport L7089's security features let you control menu and phone-book access and selectively restrict outgoing and incoming calls.

A port on the bottom of the phone can accept an optional data cable, but the Timeport L7089 already has an infrared port for synchronizing phone-book data with a PC. TrueSync PIM software makes it easy to manage your phone book with a desktop or notebook PC to transfer phone book entries to the phone. No software is included to use the phone as a digital modem for PCs or PDAs, and there is no incoming fax mode.

The Timeport L7089's lithium-ion battery is rated for a maximum 210 minutes' digital talk time and 150 hours' digital standby time. In testing, our sample phone held a call for nearly 210 minutes, but it only lasted for 96 hours in standby mode.

If you don't need multiple phone bands in a single phone, the Timeport L7089 may be overkill. However, even if you only travel within one country, this phone's well-executed design and rich set of calling features are appealing. Casual users may not be interested, but frequent callers will be drawn to this phone. --Testing and evaluation by Brown Consulting Associates, edited by Thom Arno

5-0 out of 5 stars Use the Treo600/650 With Sprint $10 Visions access!!

The New-Age Treo's are the best smart devices ever made! I have used the T-Mobile Sidekick, the AT&T Motorola MPX, a Nextel Blackberry, a Samsung i600, and even an older style Treo in the form of the Treo 300. And out of every smart device I have ever used, the Treo 600 and 650 are 1000 times better then any of them!

1# The Treo's have large color screens with full keyboards, but are still small enough to fit in your pocket.
2# The battery life is insanely long! Both of the new Treo's claim four to five hours talk time, I have found even longer. I often lay in my bed at night surfing the web for hours and hours, and by the time I am ready to go to sleep, my Treo 600 and 650 still have enough battery life to go a few more rounds.
3# Because the Treo's are so popular the prices for accessories, software, add-on's, ect are Much cheaper then those for the other types of smart devices on the market. There is even talk by Palmone to start using Linux as the Palmsource software core, so there will be even more software available. And because Linux is open source, the phones will eventually be cheaper then those running the Microsoft Pocket PC. With the added bonus of the dependability of Linux!
4# Because the Treo's are of the Candy-Bar style design, they are much easier to talk on. Because there is no flip, or antenna to fumble with.
5# There is a software lancher called "ZLauncher" which has many features for your Treo's software interface. One of which allows you to see the exact level of signal strength. By using this tool you can so how much better the Treo's antenna and related components work, compared to any other phone on the market. I get a great signal with Sprint, but with Sprint and my Treo, my service is even better! I get signals with my Treo in places where my Sanyo and LG did not. In fact, I get better signal strength with my Treo, then my friends get with their phones!
6# Palmone has a patent on a new design of smart device that they are working to bring to the market. A design nothing like the designs currently available. A PDA phone that will be thinner and still able to have a large full color screen and keyboard. SO the next generation of Treo's will be even better!

The only downfall to the Palmone Treo's today, is price. That is because they are still new to the PDA phone market. Once they start making more and more phones, the prices will come down. And once they restructure their PDA manufacturing and company purpose in general, the prices will come down. I don't normally write reviews on phones, because I used to be a Die-Hard Motorola phone fan, and I guess still am. But if Palmone keeps making phones this perfect, then I will only buy their phones for the rest of my life! I can not say enough good things about these phones! Try one and see what I am talking about. Use it with Sprint PCS's $10 unlimited Visions access!

1-0 out of 5 stars Hinge Jerry-Rigging Suggestion
Don't buy this product.It is absolutely the most frustrating piece of equipment I have ever owned.Like 99% of people who buy this phone my hinges broke.Once SuperGlue stopped working I attemped several different methods of fixing the hinges myself. Currently my 270 is no longer hinged on the top.It now opens out to the right side thanks to a beautifully inexpensive hinge made out of Scotch packing tape.Needless to say it is not functioning as a phone.If you're using yours as a PDA only like I am, then you can try this. I would like to have fixed it the proper way but after reading the experiences that others have had with PalmOne and TMobile, it's not worth it.

1-0 out of 5 stars This product is a FIASCO!
Same problem of the other people: the flip hinge has broken after only some months of gentle use.
I returned my phone for a repair and Palmone - damn they - charged me for a substitution. I was not happy with this but I accepted (damn me!). The Palm substitution model has a worst problem: after a while of a normal conversation, the full charged Palm shuts down for charging problems. Call back the call center for a money back but they won't give me back my money 'cause they repaired the original problem. Sigh! It is the last time I buy a Palm phone! Very Upset!

1-0 out of 5 stars Thankfully this phone is discontinued!!!
I had the pleasure of using and returning three Treo 270 phones due to various phone problems.After the first incident, I thought it was that particular phone.After going through two other phones, now I know why this phone is discontinued.

Don't even bother trying to go back to PalmOne, all they can do is apologize for the bad phone and ask you to send it in for repair.You pay the shipping cost and they don't even provide a loaner phone any more.My phone is still in repair and everytime I check the status, it appears the shipping date gets pushed back farther!

After reading the reviews for the newer Treo 650, I am not sure if I want to upgrade to that version either.I might have to look elsewhere.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, Not Great
My primary motivation for getting the device was its low bundled cost, but my economic situation has changed, so I would likely have gone with a different provider, i.e. Verizon, as well as a different phone.My previous smartphone was a Kyocera 6035.

I was aware of the broken hinge issue, but I am careful to leave mine in my shoulder bag or in the cradle.

The phone itself is very good, and I manage most of the information via Palm software.Entry while on the go is good, but I am more proficient with writing, as on the Palm devices, and this requires using the keyboard, a benefit to some.Dialing is done via one of three ways, either via quick numbers setup by the user, which is the default view, via the Palm address book, or directly, by typing numbers in.The date book is the same as on the Palm, only the screen is a bit smaller.The Palm functioning is similar, and the applications I use in addition to the Palm software are Vindigo, which can be synchronized remotely, an RSS reader, for scanning headlines on the go, and Adobe reader, for importing books into the Palm device and readong on the go.In addition to James Joyce's Ulysses, I bring with me various articles as PDF's.The only real limitations with the device are with the e-mail and web browsing aspects, since the screen is bit small

As to the service in NY, I've been very happy with the strength of signal I get, and I've had only a few quality issues. ... Read more

Sporting a large, 4,096-color display screen and an unconventional, rotary-style keypad, we found the sturdy, feature-rich Nokia 3650 cell phone one of the best designed phones on the market, with excellent ease-of-use, crystal-clear reception, and a camera, video camera, and Internet access.

Take and share pictures with the 3650.
(See detail)
In our tests, we found that the comfortable rounded base of this 5-inch phone rested easily our palm, and the clever retro button display took only a moment of getting used to. The buttons and disc navigation felt quite durable, with a nice, solid action. Menu navigation involves two thin buttons on the top left and right that allowed us to move in and out of menus; then the standard 4-point clickable disc provided more detailed selection. There's a separate button for the main menu prominently below the disc, and the faux-rotary layout of the number buttons helped keep the navigation buttons out of the way during dialing. The requisite call and hang-up buttons are intuitively marked, and a futuristic-looking blue light shines through the numbers on all the buttons for easy keying in low-light areas.

The 3560 delivered consistent, excellent reception in a variety of testing environments, including a basement-level room that typically causes trouble with similar phones. The default ring tones were a bit too gentle for their own good; they were hard to hear in busy outdoor environments. The tones that we created using the composing feature, however, were quite audible, even in the midst of lots of noise. The vibrate alert was also quite effective and hard to miss. Nokia has also preloaded a variety of other polyphonic ring tones for alternate use, as well as a voice-dialing feature, which stores 25 numbers and was easy to use.

In Calendar, you can keep track of your appointments, meetings, birthdays, anniversaries, and other events. You can also set a calendar alarm to remind you of upcoming events.

With the video recorder you can record video clips, and play video clips stored on your phone or on a memory card. Also, the video recorder is integrated with the messaging features allowing you to easily send created clips.

Nokia 3650 provides various functions, in an-easy-to use interface, such as Camera, Video recorder, Messaging, e-mail, Clock, alarm clock, Calculator, and Calendar.

Thanks to high-speed GPRS connection, users can access a variety of Web content, such as news, travel information, and entertainment specifically designed for mobile phones via an XHTML browser, which supports pages written in both HTML and WML (Wireless Markup Language). The 3650's calendar, phone book, and to-do list can all be synchronized with a PC using Nokia 3650 PC Suite software. This phone also supports Java for downloading business applications, and built-in Bluetooth and infrared connections empower users to send photos and text in either e-mail or MMS format to a PC or to another compatible wireless device. Some of the downloadable Java and Symbian applications provided by Nokia through their website include Merriam-Webster Word Search, and games like Racing Fever, Avant Go, and Terminator.

The phone's digital VGA camera is cleverly built in to the back of phone, and can store up to 1,000 photos at 640 x 480 megapixel resolution on its (upgradeable) 16 MB memory card. Also, the Nokia 3650's photo capability is immediately accessible from the top-level display menu, so unlike other phones it was easy to snap a photo at a moment's notice. The camera records images in standard, portrait, and a nighttime mode.

With the same basic set of controls, RealOne software lets the video recording function capture short, low-fidelity sound and video clips for immediate MP4 video playback on the generous screen or for sending to another Web-enabled user. The 15-frames-per-second video recording rate delivers stuttering, delayed images that look sort of like Neil Armstrong's transmissions from the Moon. We found this all very entertaining, and potentially useful for transmitting small bits of information, but hard to take seriously as a true video recording device.

Among the scores of additional features on this phone are text messaging templates, where you create a basic message (like "Let's eat at --- ") then fill in the blank as you wish; a foreign currency and units converter for the jet set crowd, and a "favorites" folder to store Web shortcuts and links. For hearing-impaired customers, Nokia even provides TTY/TDD (Telecommunication Device for the Deaf) compatibility. The headset included with this phone is functional, and Li-Ion battery comes rated for up to 4 hours of digital talk and 200 hours of digital standby time. The phone comes with a refreshingly well-written manual. While decorative faceplates and other accessories are available, we found that even without them, the Nokia 3650 is one of the most coolest phones we've ever laid our hands on. --Erik Hammen

How We Tested Battery Talk/Standby Time

When reading our reviews, you should view the test results of mobile-phonebattery talk time and standby time as relative information only. Many variables,including carrier signal strength at your location, signal consistency(including incoming and outgoing calls), display and ringer settings, andbattery charging methods and history, will affect performance. When handsetmanufacturers and mobile phone carriers list talk-time and standby-time ratings,they usually include disclaimers about variable performance and often refer tothe times they publish as maximum times. Some quote expected battery liferanges, and in this case you're probably safe to assume you'll experience atleast the minimum rated range. Note that manufacturers of dual-mode digital andanalog handsets publish battery-life rates for both digital and analog modes, asanalog mode consumes much more power than digital mode.

Our Tests: We tested digital-mode talk and standby times with each phone.Prior to each test, we fully charged the phone's battery according to themanufacturer's directions. To test digital-phone talk time, we turned the phoneon, established a digital carrier signal, dialed a number in our test lab, and,when the call rang through, took the receiving phone's handset off the hook.When all went well, we didn't do anything else except record the time when thephone died. In a couple of cases, the phones lost the signal and dropped thecalls. If we were right there and could redial, we did so immediately andcontinued running the test. Otherwise, we halted the test, recharged thebattery, and started the test over. Assuming consistent carrier-signal strength,this test should represent best-case talk time. And it's worth noting thatseveral phones' talk-time performance significantly exceeded the manufacturers'ratings.

To test digital-phone standby time, we turned the phone on, established acarrier signal, and left the phone in standby mode. We checked the phone everyfew hours (for what was often days on end) until the phone finally cut out.Since no outgoing or incoming calls occurred during testing and because thephone was not moved, this method should represent best-case standby time, againassuming consistent carrier signal strength.

litte big.

4-0 out of 5 stars I had this phone for 2 years and loved it!
This phone is a little clunky, but wonderful! The symbian operating system makes this phone infinitely expandable. Some of the programs you can download and install include: eBook readers (to download and read books from the New York Public Library, for instance), remote control software (to control your TV through infrared or your computer through bluetooth), game emulators (I had hours of fun playing games with a game boy emulator).

The operating system supports multitasking, so you can switch back between a phone call and an ebook without ever quitting either program... so you can turn the speakerphone on, and play a game while you're on hold. I grew to like the circular orientation of the number pad... while confusing at first, it made sense after a while.

Also, since the phone's PIM synced up with my Mac (via iSync), I never had to type a phone number or email address into the phone, which made for speedy usage.

The more advanced nature of the phone's operating system makes it prones to crashing. If a program isn't coded correctly or it crashes, this phone is prone to go into a "reboot loop", where the phone can't start anymore, and the only remedy is to take it back to T-Mobile or Nokia through the warranty. Meaning, if a program crashes your phone (which happened 3 times over 2 years to me), you have to get the phone replaced. Not good. So make sure you have a carrier with EXCELLENT customer service (like T-Mobile, as opposed to Cingular or Sprint).

Overall, I loved the phone, and the benefits far outweighed the costs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bluetooth works great
I have had this phone for almost a year now.It is one very dependable phone.Just got the chance to use it's Bluetooth capabilites.Paired it up with an IBM laptop with Bluetooth to use as a modem when WiFi is not available.The Bluetooth works great!I use it with T-Mobile and took it with me to Europe on vacation.Worked great!

5-0 out of 5 stars NICE AND GOOD
I got this phone like 3 weeks ago and its good. Its really good with T-Mobile. I think it is a good price and i need it because im 14 and i go to school and its pretty far.
Pros
-Nice screen
-good camera
-good sound recorder
-good memory
-Good video recorder
cons
-It looks kind of big and weird

-The ringtone maker is hard to use
-The recorder only does up to a min

-The phone has only a couple of numbers

But over all the phone is good and nice its much better then the sony errison t610 i switch with...It has good respution also...If you like nokia buy this...

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm having a very hard time replacing this phone..
I've grown so attatched to it. It's the best phone i"ve ever owned. Sure, it's big but the features make up for it. I'll never go back to a motorola phone again. Someone please help me find another nice nokia phone wit TMobile that has these features. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great light weight phone
this is a great phone for anyone that wants a light weight phone.

4-0 out of 5 stars A GREAT Phone
I had this phone for 1 whole year now and its a great phone only that some places you can't get any reception. Then Cons on this phone is that the keys are VERY small,If you don't put this phone on phone lock it tends to call people in your call list.Some Pros are the battery lasts a VERY long time, Very good color display,and clear hearing ringtones. But the plus of this phone is that its very durable. I have to tell you that I'm impressed that my phone is still in great shape after droping it down stairs,cement,and even my sister throwing it across the room once were it hit the wall. If you want a phone that will last you a while buy this phone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid phone. Great Value and performance
I've been with at&t for nearly 10 years. This is my 3rd Ericsson in the same amount of time. IMHO navigating the menus and performing necessary tasks is intuitive and a breeze. It beats any Nokia or panasonic by a long shot. The phone is sturdy and can take falling onto concrete or being tossed around the house on a daily basis without breaking. Voice quality is excellent, talk time and standby time are great too. Reception is never less than 3 bars - it's usually at 5.

The only confusing thing is understanding the difference between phone numbers stored in the phone and on the SIM. Otherwise, I would reccomend it to anyone with 100% confidence.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't like it.
I had the choice of another free phone. Should have taken the other one.I picked this one for the color screen.Can't hear it ring, turning vol to max doesn't help much.Reception is poor.Was never able to figure out what m mode is.
Would not pick it again.

2-0 out of 5 stars Think twice before selecting THIS phone
I have had this phone for over a year. I have complained about the reception and was told that the New Generation towers are not up everywhere so it will get better. I am still waiting. And that's from AT&T! Now that AT&T is with Cingular, I had hoped for improved reception. I am beginning to think that it is the phones fault since I never hear anyone else complain. It does not receive the connection in parts of Utah, Montana, and Washington, which I can forgive because those are some off the beaten track places, but it also does not receive a network connection just 30 mins. from St. Louis, MO. Nor does it connect in Savannah, GA. And in ALL these places the people I am with are making phone calls with their phones (some AT&T as well). I got the phone for free. IN fact, I got two of them for free. That should have been my first clue. When they are giving them away like that, it can't be worth much. I agree with the other reviews on tiny keys, slow toggle around to all menues, low ringtones (i miss many calls), and I cannot think of ANY good reason to choose this phone over another--unless they give TWO to you free and you never leave the city!

Rating it with a 2 is overly generous of me; but it does work in the city. And it's small and cute. ... Read more


173. Nokia 6610 Phone (T-Mobile)
by Nokia
list price: $199.99
(price subject to change: see help)
Asin: B00009YUKP
Catlog: Wireless
Manufacturer: Nokia
Sales Rank: 1036
Average Customer Review: 4.0 out of 5 stars
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Amazon.com Product Description

the Nokia 6610 combines the "classic" Nokia look with a bright color screen, wireless data capabilities, a speakerphone, and integrated FM radio, and more.

Design
The 6610 is designed to be easy to use, with large buttons and a generous 128 x 128 with support for 4096 colors. A large power button dominates the top of the phone, while a 2.5mm headphone jack and charging input are placed on the bottom edge. In addition to an infrared data port, there's also an input for Nokia's proprietary "Pop-Port," which is designed for Nokia accessories and USB data connectivity. A four-way control key controls most of the phone's functions and menus. And finally, the 6610 uses an internal antenna -- nothing to snag or break off.

Calling Features
The 6610's phone book can hold up to 300 contacts, with multiple numbers and text entries per contact. And because the phone runs on tri-band service (GSM 900/1800/1900 MHz) you can make calls from anywhere in the world. Meanwhile, an integrated speakerphone makes talking in any hands-free environment that much easier. You can jazz up your incoming calls with one of 20 polyphonic ringtones, and there's also a vibrate mode for those times when you want to keep things discreet.

Messaging, Internet and Tools
The 6610 features robust messaging and mobile internet functions. Traditional text messaging, as well as picture and sound messaging (MMS) are supported by the phone, as is mobile web browsing via a carrier-supported GPRS data connection. In addition to email connectivity, this lets you check the Web for sports, weather, stock updates, and whatever else you might want. T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

A number of handy software tools are bundled with the 6610 including a to-do list, a calculator, a calendar, and an alarm clock. You can easily sync up your contacts, calendars and other data with your PC using Nokia's PC Suite software, either wirelessly via infrared beam, or with a USB cable.

Imaging and Entertainment
While the 6610 comes with the standard custom screensaver and wallpaper features, there's also something extra: a built-in FM radio (stereo headset required and sold separately), which allows you to listen to your favorite stations on the go. The phone also comes with a few preloaded Java applications, including Converter II, Portfolio II, a Chess Puzzle, and a game called "Bounce."

Vital Statistics
The Nokia 6610 measures 4.17 x 1.77 x 0.69 inches and weighs 2.96 ounces. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 3.5 hours of digital talk time, and up to 225 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the 900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best Cell Phone with Tri-Band to use both in USA & India
Believe me, This phone I used in India and it worked very well. Not to mention it also worked well in USA.
I would recommend this Nokia 6610 for every person who wants to use both in India and USA (T Mobile).
This is a Triband and it may be used in other countries as well.
This one has a speaker phone and it really helps to be hands free in car and the sound quality (using speaker phone) is also good.

5-0 out of 5 stars A phone for every situation!
I've had this phone for about 1 1/2 years, and I can't say enough about it. I travel to China for my job quite a bit, and it is great to have one phone I can use in both the U.S. and China. I just swap out my SIM card on the plane before I land in China, and it works great there!

I also love the IR port, which allows me to transfer phone numbers between my Pocket PC and my 6610. An additional fun feature with this phone is how I can connect it to my computer and transfer MIDI files to the phone for new ring tones.

It also has a great speakerphone, which I use if I'm on hold or if my kids want to talk with grandparents. The speakerphone has a very clear audio quality and it seems the person on the other end can hear me clearly also.

I would highly recommend this phone for anyone travelling overseas who doesn't need a camera phone. I'm not getting rid of this phone until it dies on me!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great phone, slightly difficult keypad, infrared didnt work
I got this one year ago with T-mobile service. Here is what I think:

1. Battery life: excellent. Do not remember how much I talked without recharging, but easily more than 3 hours.

2. Reception: Excellent. But call volume could be better. Sony Ericsson and older models of nokia have better reception. Did not drop calls though.

3. Keypad: Takes some time to get used to, especially if you are pressing keys through a leather case.

3. Other features: Speakerphone is awesome, so is the calendar and the clock. Also has some other features like a calculator and stop clock which can come in handy. INFRA RED DID NOT WORK FOR ME. I did not try calling nokia about it.

Overall, a great phone for making calls.

5-0 out of 5 stars Redefining "Value For Money"
I Picked this phone up for my dad. It felt sleek. What hit me about the phone was the extreme ease of use. It offers radio,about 120 message storage capacity,polyphonic ringtones,upgradeable camera,etc.

Now you'd wonder why you should purchase this phone.I'll list a few key features-

1.It has a four day battery life. Now to me that is the best a Nokia can give.It works like a faithful horse for those on the run. Its a typical office man's phone
2.The looks are sleak yet not imposing. Its sturdy in its own way. The keypad is good. However it takes a bit time to get used to it.
3.The radio signal is as crisp as can be. The radio can be played on the loudspeaker. Now the volume of the loudspeaker exceeds any NOKIA has to offer. At 40% volume, the radio can be heard as loud as you could possibly want it to be.
4.I've used all Nokia phones and till today I havent come accross a Nokia with a better earphone speaker.Its quite loud yet not screaming in your ear.
5.The Phone lacks better memory. It can containt quite a few SMS'es but the newer Nokia Phones offer expandable MMC slots.You can't store many MMS pics on this.
6.The brightness on the phone is quite good. It works as a mini torch in the dark room.The pre-fixed wallpapers are good.The dictionary function on the phone and font that is used while using text messaging are quite good.
7.The phone is fast to the delight of the users. There's no waiting here as the start up time is low.

A thing I disliked about this phone is the battery cover. It took me an hour to figure out the easiest way of opening the lid. Now I consider myself good with phones but it does take a while to get the hang of it.It offers no camera for pictures or videos. But then its been a while since this phone was launched.

I think this is the best phone your odd $120 can buy.Believe me when I say this its a steal at that price.
It has great signal catching ability and has a lot of features and overall delivers what it promises.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality Phone
I'm on my 3rd 6610 now. T-Mobile keeps shipping me new ones because the first two shut off randomly during operation. The reception quality is awful, people say they cannot understand me. I often cannot understand them either, and there are breaks of dead air during phone calls. Key presses into automated systems are often not registered; when I call back the problem is sometimes resolved.I live in a major metropolitan area, so perhaps these issues are not as bad elsewhere. The keys are hard to press and so is the power button. I use an earpiece because holding the phone to my head causes a strange pain. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Dont get this phone
I have this phone and i dont get good reception when im in buildings.The end call button stops working sometimes and you have to turn it off in order to end your call.It is cracking at the top part where it flips.My boyfriend had this problem when he had the motorola 720 and it broke, and he had to get a new phone.My advice is not to get a flip phone because eventually it will break and you will need a new phone. Also, the screen gets dirty easily and I have to clean it with windex. It only has one game and after a week you'll get tired of it.

5-0 out of 5 stars my favorite phone
This phone is excellent. When I was first purchasing it, I was alittle skeptical of what to expect based on other reveiws. However this phone is my favorite. The only thing that I could have asked Motorola to fix is probably the camera, and maybe the speaker.Don''t get me wtrong. The camera works fine, except that if you are in a dark zone, the picture may not turn out good on the camera, but if you e-mail it to somebody, then the picture looks like it was taken from a digital camera (its that good)The problem with the speaker is that it does not play ring tones very loud, and the louder you play the ringtones, the more blury they get. A feature that I think is very cool is the internet browser. You can visit any web page you would like. All in all, I thik this phone is perfect for someone who is looking to buy a cheap updated camera phone with all the gadgets. I would rate this phone a 5 out of 5.

3-0 out of 5 stars More con's than pro's.
(...).

Pro's:
*Easy to text message.
*Cute, comfortable design.

Con's:
*There's no real alarm clock.You have to use the Datebook, and then there's no "snooze" to push.
*Pretty lousy reception.I can't use it in my apartment, where I'm always forced to use my husband's Nextel.It works fine outside, so I find myself running out of stores and my apartment when I get calls.
*The volume is low in the earpiece and also on the ringer.Even on "loud," I oftentimes don't hear it ringing.
*This is a pretty slow phone, indeed.Don't plan on taking pictures unless you have a very steady hand and a subject willing to stay still for about 15 seconds.
*The phone book doesn't store multiple numbers under one name, so you have a long list of names, one number per name.
*The Moto game is lame.
*Scratches very easily.

3-0 out of 5 stars DONT BUY THIS PHONE
ive got this thing and its pretty bad.my major problems with it have been that its built poorly.it sqeaks when you open and close it and it gets scrached easily.it also has black outs somtimes.i do like the phone itself though.the external lcd was great (mine got a huge crack in it and doesent work anymore), the menus are easy to use, and it looks pretty good.but really, for the money there are MUCH better phones out there.

2-0 out of 5 stars mediocre, problem ridden phone
yeah, go with a different phone.this one has been discontinued because it has so many promlems.I've had it for the past 8 months or so and I'm getting ready to trade it in for a new one for the third time.

problems the phone often encounters:
-end button stops working
-randomly dropped calls
-answer the phone to both the microphone AND speaker not working
-screen not working so you can't tell who's calling
-dirt gets under the screen very easily

I'm sure there are more.it's not all bad, but you're much better off with another phone. ... Read more

176. Nokia 6190 Phone (T-Mobile)

Amazon.com

Nokia's 6190, the GSM model in the company's 6100-series of cellular phones, is a direct descendant of the hugely popular Nokia 5190. We found it to be lighter, handier, and more feature-filled for only a modest increase in price. While the two phones have many features in common, including a 250-number phonebook, 35 ringer tones, and impressive rated battery life, the sky-colored 6190 we tested (provisioned by VoiceStream Wireless) offered a lot of extras. The slimmer case, easy-to-use graphical menus and navigation buttons, and advanced customization features including user profiles and calling groups, make the 6190 a great choice for people who want a reasonably priced handset with something extra for business and personal calls.

At 5.8 ounces and 5.2 by 1.9 by 1 inches, with a stubby 0.8-inch antenna, the 6190 is a bit slimmer and lighter than the 5190. In addition to the numeric keypad, the phone has Talk and End buttons, two smart buttons that work with onscreen prompts, a two-way toggle navigation button, and volume control buttons along the left side. The backlit display lights up for 15 seconds whenever you touch a key. Unlike the 5190, Nokia 6190 doesn't have a removable faceplates, (or at least faceplates that are officially removable, although you can do it with a screwdriver at the expense of voiding your warranty). And as a bonus, however, the 6190 is shipped with a Jabra EarSet for hands-free use.

Like all GSM phones, the 6190 uses a carrier-provided SIM card that defines all call provisioning and features. (Basically, this little chip holds your entire cellular personality including your phone number; you can even use it in another GSM phone.) Specific features of your phone depend on your carrier and plan, but the 6190 supports caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, voice-mail alerts, broadcast news and messages, and two-way SMS text messaging.

In addition to being able to store 250 numbers, the phone lets you assign each phone-book entry to a group that has a distinctive ringer style, so you'll know if someone from work or school is calling before you answer the phone. Although there's no standard vibration mode, a vibrating battery pack is available.

The 6190 has the same calculator and alarm clock found in the 5190, but adds a calendar mode so you can set reminders for calls, meetings, birthdays, and other events. For each event, you can enter text and set alarms. The 6190 also has four games, one more than the 5190, although none of them will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Standard security features include card, phone, and keypad locking; restricted calling modes for incoming and outgoing calls; and monthly calling charge limits. While the 6190 doesn't include standard connectivity cables, an optional data kit enables fax and data transfer.

The 6190's standard NiMH battery is rated for a maximum 300 minutes' digital talk time and 225 hours' digital standby time. In real-world testing, our sample phone held a call for 275 minutes and lasted for 210 hours in standby mode, an impressive result. A step up in features and a step down in weight from the Nokia 5190, the Nokia 6190 combines ease of use with powerful customization features. Overall it's a rugged little phone that's a pleasure to use. --Testing and evaluation by Brown Consulting Associates, edited by Thom Arno

Pros:

  • Smaller, lighter, more features than the original 5190
  • Capacious phone book with calling groups
  • 35 ringer tones
  • Long battery life

Cons:

  • Lacks standard vibration mode

When reading our reviews, you should view the test results of mobile-phone battery talk time and standby time as relative information only. Many variables, including carrier signal strength at your location, signal consistency (including incoming and outgoing calls), display and ringer settings, and battery charging methods and history, will affect performance. When handset manufacturers and mobile phone carriers list talk-time and standby-time ratings, they usually include disclaimers about variable performance and often refer to the times they publish as maximum times. Some quote expected battery life ranges, and in this case you're probably safe to assume you'll experience at least the minimum rated range. Note that manufacturers of dual-mode digital and analog handsets publish battery-life rates for both digital and analog modes, as analog mode consumes much more power than digital mode.

Our Tests: We tested digital-mode talk and standby times with each phone. Prior to each test, we fully charged the phone's battery according to the manufacturer's directions. To test digital-phone talk time, we turned the phone on, established a digital carrier signal, dialed a number in our test lab, and, when the call rang through, took the receiving phone's handset off the hook. When all went well, we didn't do anything else except record the time when the phone died. In a couple of cases, the phones lost the signal and dropped the calls. If we were right there and could redial, we did so immediately and continued running the test. Otherwise, we halted the test, recharged the battery, and started the test over. Assuming consistent carrier-signal strength, this test should represent best-case talk time. And it's worth noting that several phones' talk-time performance significantly exceeded the manufacturers' ratings.

To test digital-phone standby time, we turned the phone on, established a carrier signal, and left the phone in standby mode. We checked the phone every few hours (for what was often days on end) until the phone finally cut out. Since no outgoing or incoming calls occurred during testing and because the phone was not moved, this method should represent best-case standby time, again assuming consistent carrier signal strength. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Unreliable Suport
This is a great phone and PDA, until.... fails!, I enjoyed the P800 for 20 days, then, the touch screen stop working, on this device means all!, at the endonly the on/off button works, The vendor saids that they can't apply the warranty becouse they don't have phones, unless I acepted a motorola with price $100 lower! and i would lose the diference. and the service center that I have to pay if I want that they fix It! (Is still under warranty!!) anyway was impresive for the time it works, my recomendation, Check if the company were you purchase the phone is honest and have the capacity to cover the warranty. It's a great phone, shiny it don't last.. (oh and the online support never giveme a solution!)

3-0 out of 5 stars one gadget less in your pocket
I was an intensive palm user (Vx), and I never thought about upgrading until a phone+pda which really worked was done. I left myold Vx mate at home when they gave me a p800 at work.

Pros:
-it really does the job; even for a palm maniac the graffiti is a good aplication and the screen is smaller but it's all right
-if you have 1500 contacts with home, cell, work phone as I have,its ability to dial from any contact it is a huge advantage and time-saving feature! the same for knowing who's calling

Cons:
-battery
-coverage: it works definitlely worse than a high range cell phone, sometimes loses signal...
-in general, phone features

My opinion: the device is a much worse phone than I expected and a much better pda than I expected. If you are a user looking for multimedia, entertaiment features in a phone, the pros are not worth the cons: you have a bad phone that still doesn't meet the highest standards for games, music that you are expecting... If you want to take one device out of your jacket and use your new 2-in-1 it as a organicing advanced tool, it really gets the job done, even tought as a phone is not great. That's my case, so I will keep my p800 for a long time.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Multipurpose Phone
This Phone rocks!
It is a very good phone/PDA. Since it is Symbian OS, so no more "Microsoft Blue Death Screens". Being open source, and having the capability to program in C, and JAVA, this phone opens a new portal to mobile programming.

Advantages:
I'll leave that to any site that tries to sell this product.

Disadvantages:
1.Memory Stick Duo is relatively expensive, and small (128MB max)
2. Screen is only 4096 colours, so it may be a bit lousy when shooting pics. But with digital effects you can always adjust the picture to what you want.
3. Phone can't play MP3 ringtones. It only goes on WAV (Very large size), MIDI, OGG..and may be other formats but MP3 ringtones aren't supported.
4. MIDI table is kinda limited. If you have a rock midi it won't sound that nice on P800. But the MIDI table can always be changed with a better one, but on the expense of may be some delay in playing it.

4-0 out of 5 stars actually P800 is not too bad
I have been using this phone for almost a year and if ind it and excellent gadget.

SE P800 is, however, a challenge sometimes.
GUI could be improved to give bigger buttons when using touchscreen with fingers.Power saving mode could be improved.

I used it all over US, Germany and Russia.Works well. US mobile companies are way behind on SE pda phone product line. i don't know why. perhaps there's not a high enough demand in their estimations.

Sony are not making them any longer. It is time to upgrade to P910i. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice & compact - CHEAP too! -- Good for the price
It's cute and affordable. I am a college student and I take this phone with me everywhere. It doesn't have as many functions as some of the other fancy phones, but it does it's job. It has a function to adjust the volume. It can record voice messages. There are lots of functions- you just have to explore it.

The phone is nice, compact, durable and easy to use, once you get the hang of it. I don't see how it got such low ratings from other people.

1-0 out of 5 stars Short battery + unhappy with AT
Battery rarely lasts longer than 48 hours if I leave it on at night. The wind interfers with the signal when using it outside, even the slightest wind makes it impossible to use the phone. My biggest complaint is with AT

5-0 out of 5 stars ~*******| Can't do any better for a cell phone |*******~
I have owned this model for 12 months now and have NEVER had a problem with it. When I first got it I charged it, then ran the battery down 3X in a row and now the battery easily lasts up to 5 days or a minumum of 3 days with plenty of usage. I have had calls last 4-5 hours without problems. I rarely got dropped during calls. Bottomline, this phone is well worth (...) with my plan, that means I get close to 50% OFF my bill monthly for the entire year.

1-0 out of 5 stars Ugh
What a worthless phone.Unless you are in a silent place -- like a library where you shouldn't be on the phone in the first place -- the loudest volume is virtually inaudible.Ring tones are not loud enough, wind noise interferes with converstaions when I am outside--I am looking to replace this now, before AT&T gives me a new free phone next Februrary.I can't wait that long!

3-0 out of 5 stars Does the job, but NOT user friendly...
My husband and I switched to GSM 6 months ago with AT&T(we are happy with our GSM service).We had to get new phones with the new service.We switched from Nokia to Siemens.I have to say that we noticed right away that the C56 wasn't as user-friendly as the Nokia's we had before.However, we got a great deal on the C56's and now we wish we would have spent a little more money on a better phone.

Bottom line:Durable (I dropped it plenty of times!), could hear and be heard clearly, buttons are too small, screen is ok if you like the funky yellow :) and the battery life is pretty short (we end up charging our phone almost every day).The ring tones are hard to hear b/c they blend in with everyday sounds but it is cool that you can record your own voice as a ring tone!Overall a satisfactory phone, but my advice would be to spend a few extra dollars on a different phone and you will be less likely to want to upgrade so soon like we want to. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Batteries are not available except thru Siemens at $216 each
Don't bother buying this phone unless you get it cheap! battery replacement is $216 thru Siemens repair depot only. This phone is a real orphan. Talk about a short life cycle!!!
I bought mine 2+ years ago and gave up on the phone portion (GSM coverage was lousy). With all the hype about good coverage I switched from TDMA phone back to GSM. Coverage is still bad. What is worse the battery doesn't hold much of a charge now and can't handle PDA and celular functions. As per the above, Siemens wants $216 to replace it plus a nominal 10 day turn around. AT&T / Cingular wants to know nothing!

3-0 out of 5 stars very useful, but EXTREMELY unstable
Like one of the other reviewers, I also used to carry around my cell phone, my PDA, and my pager. This extremely useful device consolidated all three items into one. I love that part.

The PDA functionality is truly great, and I'm finding it more and more useful every day.

The only downside is that it's more UN-stable than the "crazy" girl I dated in college! :-) This thing reboots itself (generally at very inopportune times) at least once a day.

Many times it stops sync'ing with the PC, and I have to shut the PC off, manually reboot the PDA, switch the USB cableto a different port, and then boot everything back up. It's a major pain.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Phone PDA Combo
I love my sx56, I have taken it everywhere, snowboarding, skydiving, beach, everywhere.Mine has never broken, in fact it is the sturdiest cell phone I've ever owned.Once I upgraded it to the Windows Mobile 2003 OS it was even better.All the cool standard software was great.Plus I added the Microsoft Voice Command software and can make calls to all my outlook contacts by pushing one button and saying "Call so and so home", you don't even have to train or record the voice commands, it does it all by voice recognition!

1-0 out of 5 stars large, heavy, fragile
I bought two of these, one for my wife and one for me.It was so large, heavy, and difficult to use the numbers to dial the phone, my wife didn't like hers.Therefore, when the VERY FRAGILE glass on the screen broke on mine after 5 months, I took hers.The glass broke on the seconed one after 3 months.I was just using it for normal calendar checking and phone calls - nothing rough.Stay away from this phone.BTW, it cost me $100 to purchase and they quoted $300 to repair.ATT doesn't sell them anymore.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great PDA, horrible phone
I've owned this phone for about 18 months and if I hadn't paid so much for it I would have taken a hammer to it long ago.Even in the center of a large town I get lousy signal strength; people can't hear me and I can't hear them.The PDA works well and I bought it so I could carry my calendar and contacts with me and dial them directly with one tap...nice features, well worth the $700+ I paid...IF I could get a signal.Now I have learned this is because this phone doesn't work on the "third" GSM band. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Gets the Job Done
I bought this phone a little over 18 months ago at an AT&T Wireless store. It still works, even though I drop it a lot and don't treat it like I should. Like others, I have a gripe with the little fingerpad in back: it fell off after about 1-2 months. But I don't care too much, I can do without it.

The reception is great for areas where GSM is patchy. I've had TDMA for about 4 years now, and when I get my next phone which will probably be soon, I will most likely go to GSM, if only because the phones are so much flashier.

All in all, this is a durable phone that gets the job done. As others have said, the games, ringtones, and wallpapers are boring, but at least this phone is cheap, has a color screen, is easy to use, and fairly durable. I have not had any major problems. Once or twice my phone has frozen, but I simply take out the memory card in back and restart my phone. Sometimes when the phone is plugged into the charger, and I receive a call, the phone neither vibrates nor rings, but simply lights up. That can be annoying.

Pros:
-Cheap (or sometimes free with mail-in rebates)
-Color screen
-Polyphonic
-Easy to use
-OK features
-Durable (lasted over 1.5 years now)

Cons:
-Games, ringtones, wallpapers are a little dull
-Not too many features
-A little heavier than I want, but it's ok: I can fit it in my pocket with only a little nuisance
-Fingerpad in back comes off easily
-Sometimes freezes, sometimes doesn't ring/vibrate when charging

1-0 out of 5 stars Crappy Phone
I have had problem after problem with this phone.First, half the time certain keys on the keypad wouldn't work.Second, half the time I wouldn't receive voicemails until 4 or 5 days after they had been sent--very very frustrating.Third, I cannot get unlimited nights and weekends with Cingular, because it is a TDMA and not a GSM phone-- this makes my blood boil, as they will not give me a replacement phone with GSM so that I can fairly receive nights and weekends that everyone else gets with Cingular.Bottom line--avoid TDMA phones if you are with Cingular, as u will be discriminated against by not getting all the features you should be getting!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Very reliable
I've owned this phone for a year and a half, and it's never given me any trouble. Its features pretty much cover all of my needs, but if you're looking for a phone that has all the latest features like a camera, then look elsewhere.

I get great reception everywhere with the exception of those places in the middle of nowhere. Its battery life has declined a bit, but that's to be expected, especially if you consider how long I've had it. This phone has done everything I've wanted it to and has never malfunctioned once, but I do treat it very well.

Overall, if you're looking for a very reliable phone that will last you a long time and look pretty good at the same time, go with this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Just about the coolest little TDMA phone available
While certainly not a high-end phone, the 3560 is nontheless respectable as is its sibling 3595 GSM phone.Bright, color, loud, graphics, games, and text messaging.I find it to be easier with a 3595 keypad even though the original keypad looks more usable.You can set its auto timed keyguard feature so inadvertent button pushing does nothing.

Around here the best coverage is still provided by AT&T (Cingular Blue) TDMA. This phone also does AMPS so you can communicate if you find yourself in the boonies.Works well on prepaid service.

While it does not sync, you can use Nokia PC suite to send contacts and calendar appointements to it so you can load the contacts from a computer rather than from the phone.

1-0 out of 5 stars "Can't let you do that Dave...or that, or that..."
Could use some work on this phone, Normally Nokia puts out a suprior product. I'm sorry to say this one missed. Mine ferquintly cuts out calls,and without locking the keys one is truly in danger of wasting mineuts, Also (to flogg a dead horse) there is a tendancy for the bloody thing not to ring. When an incoming call is in progress,I've actually watched the caller I.D. go on with out hearing a peep out of the phone: and for you wise guys out there- no it was not on silent:).
In some cases there is a definate echo.

On the pluse side the menus are fairly easy to navigate, and placeing an out going call is rather reliable, the battery as with most drains faster over time, but starts out fairly well (and then goes to utter trash in record time). And the screen color and wallpaper options are ...Ok. ... Read more
