yea this fone is really bad during calls, people can barely hear you and all you hear is static noise a lot, and theres no way to get rid of that :( its a reallly really cute and unique looking fone that people rarely have but its horrible when it comes to service on calls
Honestly don't buy this phone. I've had to get it serviced 4 times now! i'm sick to death of it. The static sucks.. bad.
Even women say it's awful. attractive to look at first sightm but I bet is horrible to own. Not friendly at all and where will women carry it, on a neck-collar?
I love this phone and all my girlie workmates want it! It doesn't have many functions but all i wanted was a phone to make and answer calls which it does perfectly without any static, as expressed in other opinions. I live in the UK and the phone was bought in Hong Kong and works 100% perfect. The button on the front of the phone actually connects you to hands free and the flashing light helps you to find your phone in your handbag. The only problem I find is getting used to the layout of the buttons for texting.
Hi all, I found a pdf manual in English and many other languages at http://www.panasonicmobile.co.uk/panasonicmobile/G70/instructions.html
I bet this would sort out some of the confusion and angst.
horrible static, incoming and outgoing... not very user-friendly. light on cover constantly blinking. causes lots of stress. the price you pay for something so cute. watch out though, it has been said to look like a contraceptive pill case.
I bought this phone just over a year ago and have expeience static problems from the start panasonic (aust) replaced the flip top under warranty but the static came back and worse. Have given it back again waiting on outcome. I think the phone is a talking point with people and i liked how the buttons were arranged but do find it extremely hard to read when out in the sunlight due to "mirror" maybe if panasonic had spent more time adjusting the faults it would be a great phone. size is good fits into pockets beautifully. loved it in the beginning now wonder why i have it as it is only good for sending text messages ( and it can send really long ones.)
I've tried to download ringtones but all I get is an exclamation mark flashing on the screen and have no idea of how to actually access the downloaded ringtone. Can anybody help me?
What is the shrap thing on the top? A knife in case someone attacks you.
