The battery is five AA elements connected sequentially. So it is possible to "rebuild" it with modern 2800mAh elements.
Long live the king!
i have one but no charger and i dont know where should i find one
icheck already ebay amazon nothing there
Ive figured it out, it was locked to a provider. Now comes the tricky part, how to unlock it.
I have this, and the battery is still fine, but it says put in sim, could it be it is locked? Any advise?﻿

I had this phone, and if I remember correctly it was my first!... I remember I could hurt anybody with it... big and heavy :))
The phone weigh nothing.. Once you took the battery off. I remember my brother owned this. Heavy, solid and thick.
My first cellphone back to 95, very simple and cheap....not bad at all
Ericsson Ga 318 is one of the best fone in age of 90 century,I bought it in 1998 and i love to use this ericsson ga318 in 2oth century also.
Hmmm, cool phone but the screen is way too small to see anything and is a little bit too big for me though.
I bought one two months ago [used],works good but i think the speaker is no loud enough... Is that normal ? I had the same experience with my GA 628 as well...
How can you reset the PIN-code of the phone?
I got one but can't open it because nobody knows the PIN-code of the phone!
My first ever phone!!!! A Brick, but I was just glad to have one back then... did what it said made calls
Ok, Mr. Hindu, I see your point but.. what can you expect?! This here phone's been discontinued 9 yrs ago! It belongs in a museum, really. It's a wonder if it still works. They don't make mobile phones like they used to...
But speaking of big heavy mobile phones, you ain't seen nothin' if you think this one's a champion! My first gsm phone ever was one that isn't listed here - shame on gsmarena ;) - the Ericsson GA 179, which is a previous model powered by a pack of 5 NiCd elements giving 6V and having a metal frame (not unlike the 688, but much bigger) and a flexible rubber antena which was as long as the phone and pivoted alongside when not in use! :))
