I still don't know whether it's worth buying this phone now, waiting for future improved versions or buying another phone (eg the Siemens S45) now.
Any advice? I'm in two minds as to whether I should go for this one or the S45. To be honest I always preferred this one, but the price difference is substantial.
the upgrade for MMS will be free and will be here early next year (or something like that...). According to what I've seen it will add picture phonebook as well, is that true?
anyone in any country know where i can buy any t68's wholesale???????????
if so, e-mail me at the above address.
my t68 did hang once when i play the erix game. but it's a complicated desision for the phone as i managed to kill both the moving X hence it hang. I mean i trap the two moving-X into my shading region.
Hi,I have the kunar grey version of the phone it work very wel but it has hung 3 times ill now once will on the wap.emoiler.net site and once while playing the game etrix.Did any one have the same problem.Apart fom this this phone kills all nokia pones to date,I hada struggling time with he 9210 and still am having.Also the customer support of ericsson has really become good.Can any one let me know if they had the hanging problem.
People do not think if you have the cash get the phone
Had this phone for about 3 weeks now. Not bad, but the menus are not very intuitive, the response is slow (press key and wait... wait...) The battery life is reasonable, but not brilliant (GPRS off). The build quality is good, but how the tacky plastic joystick and the top two buttons got past quality contol is beyond me. The IR port does not work very well. Getting files to xfer is a real hit and miss afair, especially with gif backgrounds. The GPRS does not work yet, a problem with Vodafone I assume. Finally, the e-mail reader does not function and give the user no indication why, despite all the setting being veryified. Also, Windows XP is not currently supported by the Syncing software, so beware if you use that OS. In conclusion, it is an impressive piece of technology in such a small size, but it suffers from all the problems of a first generation product; bugs, poor man-machine interface, network problems etc. The responce lag though is unforgivable in my opinion. Should you get this phone? If you want to stay ahead and plan on upgrading often, then yes - you will like it. If it is a one off expensive purchase that you want to last a while, then wait. When Nokia builds a phone of similar specification, you know that Ericsson will have something to worry about. I frankly can not wait to see all this technology utilised by Nokia; a company that understands how the consumer likes things to work.Maybe the fact that they are being slow in producing a rival product shows that they think the technology integration needs maturing before it is unleashed - a fact exemplified by the T68.
The shittest handset in the universe has arrived..All Ericcson stink! terriable to use,,
Regarding Picture Phone Book ...
To "Yoonoo"; asking a question about this.
Ericsson have removed this function from
the final release of the phone.. Very dissapoiting ...
You may NOT have a picture of your friend
showing in the display when this person
calls like you can on some other phones; e.g the NOKIA 9210...
The T68; A bit dissapoiting !!!
I have been always been using NOKIA,
and now while I am waiting for the
NOKIA 6310, a decided to try the
One thing must be perfectly clear;
when it comes to user-friendliness,
NOKIA has always been, and still is
ahead of Ericsson.. The T68 is a
major improvement over earlier Ericcson
models, but still not good enough to
beat NOKIA, SORRY Ericsson !!..
First of all, I miss the oportunity to
be able to save a contact “direclty” from within
a unregistered number from e.g a missed call,
or simply direct from punching in a number,
and then be able to just "save contact",
or "add number to contact".
On Ericsson T68 you have to remember the
Number in your head/or write it down on
paper, then go in the contacts-menu, and
add the contact and the number..
VERY VERY irritating and un-user-friendly ...
Another things that irritates me is that a
"birthday" is not an option in the calendar function,
this is plain ridicilous of Ericsson.. And it is
not possible to link an caleneder-event directly
to a contact. E.g search for a friend of yours
that you have saved, and put in an appointment
with this person ... This is ridicilous of Ericsson.
The so-called colour-screen is not that fascinating,
only 256 colour graphics are allowed .. And the
light and the contrast are pretty weak (probably to
safe battery-life, and if you try to increase the
contrast-level on the phone, it almost
doesn’t show at all any improvement. The screen
is a bit weak and “blur” .. Not in anyway “crystal sharp”
as stated in an earlier thread on this forum.
And mabye most irritating is; Ericsson have
removed the ability to assign imported
graphic-files to a contact-card.
(So that you can have a picture of your friend
showing in the display when this person is calling;
like you can e.g on the NOKIA 9210).
In a user-manual of the T68 available on the web,
it says that this is possible, but in my official manual,
it is NOT !! And after having tested the phone,
extensively, the conclusion is; IT IS NOT POSSIBLE !
So beware people, this function is not available on the T68).
The graphics you import from your PC can
only be used as "Background Theme"..
The graphics are sized max : 101x80 pixels, and
only *.GIF files are accepted)
Also the “keyboard” / “piano” function that should
be available, is not.. I saw pictures of this on
the web-manual, but Ericsson have removed it
in the final release of the phone...
The User manual is not very good.. And there is no
Software bundled; either for PC or fot the Mac. This
Software has to be downloaded from the net. There
Is no way a person without extensive computer-skills
will be able to transfer pictures to/from this phone
and the pc. Shame ono you Ericsson !!! L
The bundled rining-tones are boring, way to loud,
and all just plain old typical Ericsson-sounds..
The phone does not have HSCD like the NOKIA 6310
(and other expensive phones).. But you’ll
probably manage with GPRS if your network
All in all this is a pretty nice-phone, but
It was a dissapointment in light of what
I did expect. The phone is VERY small,
mabye too small for some people, (for mee).
They have adapted the ability to have several
nmbers within one contact-name from NOKIA,
this is great Ericsson.. They also have adapted
the ability to have different rining-tunes for
different names (This also from NOKIA).
The phone is so small and “cute” that is almost
hav a “feministic” look and feel, like the
NOKIA 8310. The T68 has lot of functions,
But it is a bit difficult to navigate in the menus
compared to NOKIA’s menu system. The “joystick”
is a good idea, but is a bit to sensitive some times.
The phone has “Bluetooth” technology, and
a lot of accesories are available, e.g a wireless
portable hands-free. The lack of missing bundled
software, and manuals of how to communicate
with your T68 between your PC is also a dissapointment.
I will continue to use this phone until the
NOKIA 6310 arrives, and then we will see.
A colour-screen of this poor quality is
not a must, or a major advantage alone to NOKIA.
ericsson is so much better than nokia....it has better lookin phones, more useful phones and it has much much more functions plus nokia almost has no GPRS phones......and most importent nokia has no phones with built in bluetooth™ technology.......ericsson for ever!!!!!
just my curiousity.....
Which color combination do you all think is better?
I really like the phone.... I just dont like the color,... :(
that's why i'm asking for opinion here...
OWNERS, Is there any problem w/ this ericsson T68 with so far?? I want to get it.....
What are the color option???
I don't like gray........or gold.....
Where can i find the price deal for this phone?
Simply fabulous!!! I love this mini mobilphone!!! BYE Nokia!!!!
