This is just my phone now in 2017 and it was from my dad anyway this one is just awesome.
This was my first ever cell phone, back in 1995. It had almost no features whatsoever, except for an address book, but I always got a pretty good strong signal with it. which was all I wanted at the time.

Wow, would you look at this big brick. It looks so cool and I bet it is worth alot of money now. Very rare, wish I had one!
not the first phone or even the first gsm by a long way but still great for the time, ive been looking for one for ages to add to my collection
this site should list the pre-gsm phones aswell (but i guess it wouldnt be called gsmarena then lol)
Can people stop bagging this phone and similar phones.
At the time this would have been a great phone, and if it wasn't for phones like this, we wouldn't have the phones we have today.
i compared dis marvel to da HTC TYTN II
1) Camera is incredible!! TYTN's measly 3MP AF camera is nothing compared GH 218's 9.5 MP FF (fine focus)with auto Macro and manual ISO.
2)In the line of user friendliness the huge, Fred Flinstone sized keys work MUCH better that any touch screen!! also no need to use your brain, just press!!
I could do a full review but I'll leave that to the real guys.
Overall, according to those inspections alone, the massive TYTN II pales (u could become impaled on the GH 218's antenna though) in comparison to the legendary GH 218.
awesome phone!! they shouldn't have 'discontinued', it's a real awesome phone.
i mean when it soppd workin 5 years ago, i still play catch with it.
even then, when me landline phone spaeker went bad, what better replacement to use that this Mega Bass speaker?
one time i had to cut my pants pocket because the antenna bored a hole in it and couldn't come out
sniff~ i really loved that fone!~sob
