After using the phone for three days, I had some problem with the screen. It was rectified immediately but I begin to doubt the quality of the product. I never like any of the ringtones that come with the phone. The battery doesn't last longer than a day, I have difficulty making calls (I always get the connection "failed" notice) and I have to deal with the echoes when making calls. But for a mere USD80.00, this is phone is a worth buy if you are looking for an "entry level" WAP phone or if you intend to use it as "secondary" handphone. I would rate the phone 5/10.
I have used Nokia, Ericsson, Alcatel and I am trying the Trium Mars. I was shocked with the features this little phone has for the little price. Its feature rich except for a few things i.e. no IRDA, tone composer and poor/cheap casing.
For just USD 80, I have everything I need with 2 years waaranty & 1year theft insurance. Nokia & Ericsson are a ripoff, 1st the introduce 3310 with zero features, then they introduce 3330 (with 2months gap) which has WAP and then they will introduce 3333 with triband. They overcharge consumers and lay baits for them to buy next model. Creating mountain of discarded phones in every country. Ericsson is worse. The next best phone I have used is the Alcatel, probably the most practical options are available with Alcatel.
Another advise 1st thing u should by 2nd skin for trium mars as the casing is cheap & has gaps, so there is danger that moisture & dust will get in & damage.
Please help me to change the ugly "loop (www.loop.de)" logo. How can i set at least the trium logo that i see in the pictures?
i think its a great phone,but it could do with improvement for instance,you should be able to get screen savers,
and ringtones like nokias are,it would add
to the phone,its great how you can get
accesories for it already like coloured
battery covers and boots,but that is make up for the outside and you dont really have a choice of variety ,there could be a
thousand people with a phone that looks,
identical to yours in everyway.you such
have to invest in that extra luxury to
improve the popularity of the phone

I piggin' hate this 'phone. If the phone fails to send a message, you lose the whole message. If you receive a message whilst your writing one, guess what? You lose the message. If it wasn't for the recent price hike I'd kick the thing into the bin. I've also lost the charger and can't find anywhere that sells them, and have not been able to download the soddin' manual. Pish.
although the phone is small and light, that is about its only good feature!I have to charge it at least once a day, as the battery runs out so quickly. The reception often cuts out, and it often will not let me send text messages or ring people, simply saying "failed".My last phone may have been bigger, but at least it worked.I would advise anybody against this phone.
The phone is brilliant and just to let you all now you cannot get ringtones or logos for the phone as there is no storage room for them
I purchased a Trium Mars, and have had nothing but problems with it, it is a great phone if it worked properly, It has plenty of features for the price, the problem is that it echoes when making calls, you are occasionally deafened by a high pitch fluttering noise caused by the phone, not the network, they are prone to faults such as simply refusing to switch on,losing it's charge shortly after a full charge, the built in alarm not going off or failing to ring despite meticulous checks to ensure that it was set to do so it also fails on occasions to log on to the network depite the fact that it says you have a full signal, I swapped the SIM with other phones in the same locations when it has done this and found no problems being able to make a call with those phones, the general build quality of the phone is poor hence the reason why you get the rubber boot with it, it keeps it from rattling about, if you purchased the phone PAYG, as I did, from Vodafone then the boot doesn't come with it, the most irritating thing about the phone is the poor customer service from Mitsubishi, they show you the accessories on their website, but are unhelpful and evasive when you contact them to ask where I can find a retailer for them, they also supply dataleads and contact software for every phone in the Trium range, except the Mars, we have been told they will eventually bring one out but at the moment it has been 6 months and no joy, I have had 2 replacement Mars phones since I purchased in November, due to the ensuing problems, I have recently returned the phone for a refund and I am now looking for another phone, it is really sad because the Trium Mars showed such promise if it wasn't so shoddily built and the lack of support from the manufacturer, my advice is stay clear of this phone no matter how tempting it may appear.
lovely handset...but the security features are tricky..if theres anyone who can update me..please mail...overall...9/10
Golly what a bad bunch of salespeople you guys had to deal with !!! First of all, there is NO calculator, there is a CURRENCY CONVERTER which is most useful specially if Ur in Europe for this coming year or so with the Euro coming up... Great cheap phone ! Definately not a Nokia thank God !
The Truim Mars Is GOOD but it is almost impossible to download ringtones!!!!!!
A wonderful lightweight 'phone - inexpensive and with all the features we require. It is a pity we can't find any personalised ringtones for this one though as it would be nice to browse.
can somebody tell me where i can get trium mars ringtones or logos from please
Can you tell me where I can find second skin for my Trium Mars?
