When I first got my GF768 it was only the second mobile I had ever bought. The first had been an alcatel club model which was a decent enough phone but somewhat bulky. The ericsson was a world away from this previous model. I had never had any knowledge of EFR but apparently this had it?!?! I don't to this day know exactly what it does but believe me the quality of sound and the reception on mine have been outstanding. The menu is a breeze to flick through and the options on it are all clear and relevant. On the down side obviously you have the small screen, tidgey little buttons which don't help if you are a bit of a porker like me, and the easily bent aerial. Since buying it I have changed contract three times and each time have given the new phone away in favour of my 768. This has meant goodbye to a Nokia 3210, Siemens C15 and one other which I think was a motorola brick! If you can get your hands on one then do, just be wary of the colours!
I used a blue 768 for 12 months on a cotract and found it to be a pretty good little phone. If you see past its girly looks then it has several features that stand out. First of all, i like Ericsson's menu system. It is uncluttered and very easy to use. The melody composer was a welcome feature unlike the many strange languages which my friends absolutely loved! very funny! :) The main drawbacks to this phone are that it is old. I got the phone at a lower price just as the T10, its replacement was appearing in the shops. Only being a single band wasn't too much of a problem, it still worked 101% in France and Germany and even if it was dual band i would have still needed my other phone in the US. The display is only 1 line. This made reading and editing text messages a slow procedure. I found the receiver in it to be quite weak meaning people with other friends on the same network received a stronger signal on their phone than i did while stood next to me. This often affected the quality and reliability of calls. Also the well known Ericsson 'characteristic' of the battery not quite fitting the phone. Any slight movement would often cause the phone to lose conntection and switch off...but then maybe it was planned as the battery life isnt too hot anyway! Aside all this i found it a smart attractive little phone. As they say, 'small in size, big on features.'
I recieved the ericsson pf768 in november 1999. I love this phone due to its excellent size and style. The phone was a fantastic buy at the time when it was probably the smallest phone on PAYGO. I have become tired of it turning itself off regularly. I have recieved complaints off my friends who use Ericsson phones too about this. Another thing is, if someone calls you and you answer it then you cant retrieve the number of the caller. I do however love this phone for its great size.
This was the first mobile phone I had, and I have to say I was very pleased with it. Sure, compared to others it's a little behind the times, but it's very sexy, compact, has all the basic functions and IT'S AN ERICSSON! What more do you want? Blood?! I recentley bought the GF768's brother, the PF768. I have to say that both have been the best phones I've ever had, including the Nokia 5110, Siemens S25 and the Motorola Timeport. So, come on everyone, what's so bad about this great little thing?
Ugly, and certainly NOT for the new generation. Sitting Back lid protects the keyboard. Compact and light. Very sensitive mike. The Earphone with natural The Watch, alarm clock with function of repetition. 10-times automatic reset. Easy onelines display. Supports all facilities of Phase II. Comments Okay the phones small, but the screen has got to be one of the worst seen on a UK mobile for a long time. Thank heavens the phone is now discontinued (even on one2one pre-pay This is an awful phone and I will be glad when my contract expires to buy a new phone. Sound quality is awful and the one line display is very unfriendly. It's now shown me you get what you pay for - so I'm going to buy an 8210 soon.
This phone is out of date and not available now. It has been replaced by the T10 which is dualband and has a better display and vibracall. This used to be a top of the range phone and competed well with the StarTAC. It is still quite a good size for a mobile and has all the basic features but if you are buying a new phone get soemthing more up to date. The display was the worst thing about this phone as you can't even fit a full telephone number on it but apart from that it was quite a good phone - for the time.
The Telephone of new generation. Stylish, graceful design. Sitting Back lid protects the keyboard. Compact and light. Very sensitive mike.
