WOW this is my first phone ever that i purchased many years ago .. As they say "You never forget your first" .. i was actually looking to buy this phone again in 2012 LOL .. miss the old simple reliable phones...
I had this phone aroung mid 2002, this is the first cell phone that I bought with my own hard earned money...
the only thing that attracts me to buy this phone is the battery life. I don't really like the menu and other function (the side scroll key makes my finger hutrs, it has rough edges)
Overall it was just ok.. I love the battery life though...
I have one fully functional but haven't had used it for a few years. I've charged it last week and it works. So, if someone needs it, I'm willing to sell it. Send offers to email@example.com
One of the Best Cell Phone I have ever used. I have used total 12 different cell phones since 1998. This xenium is one of the best!!!(in it's day)
The display is good, Long lasting Batrey, Menu work great..it's just works!!! and also very2 tough. But I did not use it for a very long time (only almost 1 year) because I had to study to America and turns out it did not work there, something about the GSM frequency.
Now I'm using a Black Berry 8900, but still have good memories about this phone...
This is an awesome phone! I have been trying to find one on ebay for the past month, but have had no luck.
They're so easy to use and very tough! i dropped mine many times and it continued to work like new. I wish i had never 'upgraded' all those years ago.
I'll guess i'll have to keep on looking. Wish me luck!! :)
Too good a phone. So handy. Strange, Philips stopped manufacturing this or could not market it properly.
Even more strange is, no other company has one as same as this one.
I have this model sinds about 4 years but I did not use it in the last 2 years because I studied abroad. The cell phone was not used, did not rechage. I began to use this week but I realized there is not in the menu to look at my sms, I only can write sms and I can not even receive sms. Do you have any idea how come this?
Greetings from Peter
my dad udes that phone for many years and was very pleased with it...now as it got broken he is looking for such a mobile but new...unfortunately it is not produced any more...have you got any idea where can i get this mibile? a new one?..write firstname.lastname@example.org ...thx
I had it for 5 years and still working perfectly.
very good phone and very good stand by time up to 300h after all this time(really 300h).
very tough, it survived so much throwing and droping that I don't care anymore.
you can find it at a really good price and it's worth it
This is the best phone I have ever used.
I've had it for over 2 years in use. No problems and it did what an everyday phone should. And you don't need to charge it everyday, battery last really long.
Now just need to find a new "Xenium".. a color display model that would work 100% and have good battery.. I've tried few Samsungs - but no hope with those..
