Sweet little phone, even despite lacking "modern" features it's really tiny and slim, yet of durable build quality, and does what a phone should do: make calls and text.
I bought several of these from Electronics Goldmine, they had new-surplus ones for $7 US, apparently brand-new (still had the peel-off sticker on the LCD). Unfortunately they're gone from the site now, I guess sold-out.
I bought them for international travel because they are so cheap that if lost or stolen, no big deal... instead of carrying my expensive mobile with me and risking it. In fact these would make nice inexpensive gifts too.
They are 900/1800 MHz only so won't work here in the US but as they are to be used for travel to Asia, no problem for me.
They didn't come with battery or charger, but I managed to find replacement batts on Ebay (white battery and silver phone...hehe but the point is it works!) The batts are very hard to find as they are discontinued so I'm happy to have got them at all, and for about the same price as I paid for the phones, even if it makes the phone look like a car that's been in a crash and had a body panel replaced with one from the junk yard. :D
Chargers are still readily available online, the universal (world-compatible voltage) "travel" model to look for also works with T28 and T60.
I wish basic phones of this quality were still made today, but alas, at the low end of the scale at least, it seems that what's on offer now is real junk.

I had this phone for abt an year(2004), until it fell down from teh 4th floor and broke into 3 parts. went to the Sony Shop, they said it cant be repaired, so Bought a new phone. I still miss this phone even now when i carry 2 HTC phones... i have not yet thrown the phone parts, Sony ppl fixed the phone into 1 part and gave it back. once every few days i try switching it back on, just hoping it would start again. The phone meant a lot to me... a lot...
i had this phone for about 2 years and it is such a great phone but i got a newer model and it works fine too. so i think if you are loooking at this phone i think you should get it. :)
I've had one for a couple of years, and if I needed to rely on a phone at all I would have replaced this piece of junk ages ago.
1. The ringer randomly switches between ringtone and vibrate.
2. Text entry randomly switches between T9 and multitap.
3. Reading text messages is a pain. When a message is received a prompt appears; hit Yes to read. Then hit C to unlock. Then hit Yes again to read the message. It seems to have about a 1s timeout on each prompt, so you'll often find yourself trapped in an endless loop of trying to get the sodding thing to unlock.
4. There's no obvious way of saving a number from the call list to the phone book. You can call a number back, at least. Sadly that's -all- you can do.
5. The housing creaks and groans like a tallship's rigging during a gale. Heaven only knows how people I talk to on it can actually hear me over that.
6. The memory is so small it's tragic. This would possibly be tolerable in a low-use phone, except the "Delete all messages" options are buggy and usually don't.
7. Speed dial is a joke. 1-9 will call phone book entries 1-9; just try sorting a halfway-full phone book so that the numbers you *want* are in 1-9. Gah.
Conclusion: possibly useful if you're after a solid object to block a toilet with. And even then it would probably break.
