Excellent piece of equipment. Had mine in 1997. It was my very first phone. Back then, prepaid had just started in Ghana and SNAP was the thing. I miss the days when a phone was simply a phone, not a gps, tv, radio, decoder, memory bank, your life? Bring back this phone any day.

First phone here also. Wasn't bad at all for it's time. In the end the speaker let me down (after fixing it twice)...
My 1st phone also. It thought me the basics, as I spent hours on it... It was my ladder, as after about 7 phones I have to say the nokia E61i is a life saver and I love it... Thanks so much for the ericsson GA628 4 giving me the directions...xxx
