i have been using this phone for the past few months (it was a gift from som1), it was used ofcourse . The phone's camera and stuff is ok! but the rest is not , the network is big problem everytime i enter a building i get a notice "Searching for network" , but anyways it's ok for showoff , but it's even huge so i rate it 7/10 . :)
The GD87/88 seems to have as many fans as critics, and both equally sure that they're right... ;-) If you've gotten a good one (meaning no bugs, lemons, fakes) then chances are it's lasted long enough to be considered a good value. For some reason, though, for a long time there was a price premium on this phone that was unjustified (other comparable phones weren't quite so expensive). In any case, considering this was one of the first true 'camera phones', it wasn't just a novelty item, but actually a decent phone in it's own right. The screen, by the way, was and perhaps still is, one of the best out there. What would I change about this phone? Earpiece volume has been often criticized as being too low and hollow. If you live outside major urban areas, the reception might leave something to be desired too. Bluetooth was avaible when this phone came out, but sadly was not included. Would I buy this phone again? Yes, because it has served me well for 4 years, I like the way it looks even today, no significant problems have arisen, and I've put SIM cards into it from Asia, Canada, Europe and the Middle East hassle (and contract) free.
Thanks for reading...
I've had my GD88 since Dec.02 and it's been so reliable. Even through dropping the phone, all software remains sharp. I believe the accessibility of the menus are much easier than the competitors' phones. The camera still holds its quality next to those new overpriced ones on the market.
Re: chander and abdul,
memory on the GD87 is pretty bad. only 1Mb. howver this is split between the mms, sms the data folder etc. regrading the software for this phone refer to my earlier messages.data cables. many high street stores such as carphone warehouse, dixons link, phones 4u etc.. sell them these are in the UK.
note that tyhe GU87 is the same as the GD87. its just the US version (as far as as I am aware)
Panasonic does software for this phone. you can download it from their website. they dont make it obvious and it took me around 30 mins to find it through google and other websites. Panasonic are being real bastards. ( pardon the french) but here is the address for the PC editir tool. hope it helps.
