i bought it in 2002...still working perfectly (with battery for T28 :) great phone in every way...i bought more then six phones in this past years but this one, the first one, is perfect...better then my 3310 and 3410...and 6230, M65 and of course GA628 :)
just one problem i have with it, i can't find original battery for phone so i use one for T28 and it's always reporting (when i am charging battery) that this is unknown battery and it charges it half >> full and in the same way it goes down full >> half >> empty...only way to fix it is to find original battery...but everything else is just perfect. I am so sorry for Ericsson, i wish they could separate from Sony and come back to us as before... :(
I used this phone for years and i was satisfied about the functions and the games. After it was stolen i bought a second one, which i used one year. after two months of non-using the antenna function was very bad. It doesn't receive 1800 Mhz providers and it does release the connection with 900 Mhz providers. I don't know what is the problem. Has someone a suggestion?
Just what I've been looking for. A site that I can make a comment about the Erricson R320. I have two Ericsson R320's for four years now and they are a fantastic phone. Great design. Very thin at the time of release, and elegant not gimicky. Good solid feel and nice colour. Can't understand why top width of phone is slightly less than bottom width though, 1-2mm. I'm being picky but I subscribe to symetrical design. You won't notice though unless you get a ruler out. Known to have problems with power amp as did one of mine, but I had it fixed recently and now holds charge. Talk time is typically 2.5 hours and reception is terific as is sound clarity. So many useful fetures even by todays standards. Hardly ever see used ones for sale so people must keep them, but when they do come up they don't sell! Maybe they don't have enough up to date features for todays buyers.If they could re-release this phone without the antenna protrusion, a camera. bluetooth, and it wasn't associated with Sony, I would certainly buy one. In the meantime I am running a Siemens SK65 which is another innovatively designed phone built to last but is chuncky due to folding qwerty keyboard. Most annoying feature is backlighting goes off after 15 seconds if no buttons are depressed and can't reset to stay on. If it is possible to change, please someone let me know. Also NEC N343i is worth a look. Have one and it has so many great features in such a small thin phone. Hope this may help someone and have a great day.
May i know, how do i save a new number to my phone's memory instead of card's memory?

Yes, the R320 is truly the Godfather of the mobile phone world.. I always wanted this phone, but alas, no GSM 1900.. So i can't use it here in Canada... even if i could find it. oh how i miss the original Ericssons.
love of my life ! the gadfather of all mobile phones around the world ! THE BEST EVER !
I have had this phone for around 4 years now. Excelent phone with very good performance. The only problem I have had is that the backlit has stoped working hence the LCD screen and the keypad not useable at night. Can somebody tell me if this is repairable.
I have had this phone for almost 4 years!!! I have nevr hd any trouble with it. Once i even put it into a big glass of beer....it started vibrating and after a couple of hours when it dried of it worked normal.Fantastic phone. It is very very hard to ruin this cell phone! Ericsson rules!!!!!!
I had this phone for over two years and I really think it deserves a review from me. VERY EASY TO USE!!! (easier than nokia or other new phones). Pretty good battery life (in two years- it dropped from 4days to 2-3days). VERY STURDY!!! Threw it as hard as I could against a cast iron radiator (I thought I will gather the parts from alover the place), not a thing, so I did it again and cracked its display- THE PHONE STILL WORKS PERFECTLY (aside the fact that you can't see what's on)
Its down-size: little longer than fit my pocket, not so fast software. I now have a t610 and I kind'a regret my old R320s. love ya!
You would say it's too large and too slow...
Maybe it is true..but it is very simple, user friendly and also very durable and reliable...I have had it for 3 and a half years! Very good mobile however!
R320 is better than R520. Slimmer! The R520 is phat!!! and the arrow keys look like a monkey's face!
Features still OK by today's standards, about equivalent to today's high-end Nokia minus the crap of course. Nokia's full of crap.
Battery life is bad by today's standards.
IR protocol is a bit weird, some interoperability problems with PalmOS devices...
Best features is the SIZE! It's so refreshing to grasp a full size phone! Good to take a break from small micro phones once in a while... This is teh reason I'm keeping it.
Hello, I want to exchange my Motorola V.2288 for an Ericcson R320. But the Display of the Ericsson is missing a line,looks kinda shitty that way, but i love the rest! Another problem is: The phone does not seem to connect to the network (CONNEX Romania) ,Matei,the guy i want to make the exchange tryes to fix that but he hasent had much luck yet! Can annybody give me a hint?! what could be wrong?
Not so fast phone, but I think, its design is very very smart. battery is OK - try ultraslim (650). useful calendar. you can see that this is a hi-end phone. I´ve got it for 2 years and I didn´t find anything bad (maybe some details). and you can´t compare it with som well-known-cheap-shitty-mobile-phones like for ex. Nokia 3310, Siemens C35...
if there is a new model of this phone, I´m sure I´ll buy it.
And somebody wrote here that R320 has a weak vibration - this phone wasn´t made for sex :-))))
well, it's nice phone. I've bought it with 5 euros from the company i work. But there is a stupid system for the sim card.
I have bought 3 R320, The 1st one I lost it. 2nd one I bought to replace my lost phone. unfortunately it has bad receiption. get it back to shopper but they do not help at all to repair since they have no other stock to replace R320 for me. I could not get refund for buying junk ericson from them. I did not complaint to the consumer bodies because the shop owner is my friend's friend. Ericson gives no support on after sales- not in Tawau. Because I love so much to use this model I bought another one but still it gives problem. keypad can only access the 1st 3 menus and jammed on the other 4 manues. If only you guys can support me to repair for my R320 I will still buy Ericson phone.
I bougt it for $50 external kbd. and batt. replacement included. Works fine especially I like the accepted calls list, so nobody cand bug me when I don't want. Just uploaded my address list from my palm with minimum hassle via IR. For this price is just fine. People... Try to live good & cheapo.
