Excellent phone, for autonomy and for the connection. Serious defect in privacy: in the options of sending sms there is a list of "recently used" that can not be erased. This can be a very serious .... If anyone knows a possible remedy, I will avoid throwing away the phone
I am eager to have a device that can stay on one month and serves as a phone. My experiences are that expensive PDA should be separated from phone, else you have not a good phone, neither a good PDA.
i thk this fone looks very bad and do not like the make of this fone i dnt knw the inventors waste money
still waiting for symbian based philips. Love the battery life already, but it needs brain to perfected it
Gripes, Uses USB headphones which are not readily available. Occasionally the phone has turned off on its own for no apparent reason. My first experience with cell phone cameras, so I have nothing to compare it to, but the capture time is lengthy, so often while you are waiting for the capture to happen, you end up moving the phone and capturing a blurred image. Images cannot be zoomed on the phone. PC Software does not permit accessing all the fields actually available on the phone, example - address - is on the phone, but this field is not available in the software. Music volume is very low. You cant really hear it at all in an airplane due to background noise.
One touch dialing, not all phones have it. Hands free mode works well. Great battery life. Micro SD memory can be designated as the default device for pictures, music, etc. 8gb limit is lots. Alarms and dual mode time is a nice feature. Can read basic text files. Small, and I personally like a candy bar shape - no flip phones please, but thats a personal choice. USB charging, FM radio (need the USB headphone which acts as an antenna) is nice to have. Alarms are loud and very customizable.
Dont read too much into the gripes, it is still a great phone with great battery life. The unknown shutdowns concerned me for a while, but they have not happened often and I am hoping there will be a firmware update for this problem eventually. This is a great basic phone. If you want a touch screen with larger viewing area, this is not the one you want, but if you want a basic very functional phone, consider it.
over all ladies and gents .... it's a better phone then most are on the market slick and well built ... if your purpose is speaking .. 'cause the battery life is just the right type, for that purpose!
so go ahead buy it: www.yesasia.com
comes around 210euro without country tax!
on top of that philips lovers, this one is QUADBAND!!!
Best of Luck!

i love the specs of this cell except lack of 3g (which is very important for me). Wake up, philips! it's 2009 and not 1999. Almost every manufacturer has a 3g cell on their line up.
