hi im from africa, this phone was just realease last year in 2010, its a very good phone, last week i was running away from a lion and i threw it at him..he got scared and ran away. after that my battery stays full all the time, now i can call the villagers on there phones and tell them when the rain is coming. he ha
I'm using this phone since Year 2000 as my back-up, and still is the most durable phone for me.
I have just start use this phone, I got one for $11 and buy a SIM card and a new battery it seems to work good. I dislike modern phones they are too small and I don't camera or all of this modern stuff. this GA628 is even better than the Nokia phone from 1996 that I had before.
i loved ericsson,my first phone was an ericsson GA628,(discarded by my brother, cause the battery wasnt available for ga628),one can still use it with 4 normal rechargeable batteries i.e 1.2 volts each connected to its internal battery terminals.it still works but only supports gsm 900. Also ericsson's could give you an excellent signal quality on just one bar network coverage,,,i was tired of using this phone,,as i had to carry it with 4 batteries, and the wiring,,,OMG...!!!! so i bought the T100, i loved it ,,,excellent phone...i still have it and its still working good,,,except that the battery now lasts just half a day,,i bought another battery but u know u get just duplicate batteries today,,they dont last long...puuuhhh.(it was knocked out in 15 days)..i still have this phone as a backup with the original battery u know,,incase i loose my current cellphone.LOL!!!..it served me for 8 years,,..still going strong and also the other GA628 ericsson..""THEY ARE A SOUVENIR ""..WILL NEVER FORGET THEM"

This was my first cell phone. I got it from Kolkata,India back in 1998. Though one can use the same as a weapon also (due to its weight) the same is an incredible device.
i never was dreaming with 628 but it was my first phone!! I miss you my big blue phone...
Ohh that green lights... so cool!!!
It was not my first phone. When I was in high school I was dreaming to have one but I could not, because I was depending on my pocket money that would never be enough to buy a 628. Than 15 years passed, I used 10 different brands will all high-tech functionalities. But last week, I suddenly remembered how desperately I wanted to have a 628 in those old years. I found a working one on internet an bought it today for 10 Euros. It was so beautiful that I could not drop it off my hand all day, I called all my friends with it:)
It has the beauty of simlicity; one line screen, no time/date, steel and heavy body, only basic ring tones, has an antenna,..,etc. I am sure I will be using it for long time.
My wife is making fun of me now, because I started using a 628 intead of my iphone:) I am sure my collegues will do on Monday as well:))
Its the first GSM phone I bought in 1998. Very sturdy and still looks like new and works in 2010 :-)
