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! :))
this fone very bad and heavy.i only find one good reason for phone. i use it to hammer in nails
Great phone, it can take a lot of punishment, a real stong phone, soild as a rock, never ever gave a problem. It was a 2nd hand phone one thing sucks It can't send an SMS to another phone but it can receive form others.
