I bought a T66 about two years back........


It was a very very small phone (weighed 61 grams with battery), the smallest and lightest I had ever come across.... impressed by the size and weight I bought it. Another reason was the name SONY which came along with ericsson


My friends and family were all very impressed with the phones small size and sleek look. But using that phone I realized it was the worst phone in the market. I found many problems with the phone (listed below). I had to replace charger under warranty after two months. one year after purchase (luckily a few days before my warranty expired) the phone stopped detecting any network at all. So returned the phone to the dealer. I was informed after about two months that company has decided to pull back the model, so they replaced my phone with a T 600. Was happy to get my phone replaced by a new one (they didnt replace the battery and the charger) after using the old one for about an year. But later realized ALL ERICSSONS MODELS ARE EQUALLY BAD.


SIZE AND WEIGHT : excellent, u cant find cell phones any smaller or lighter than ericssons


NETWORK : VERY VERY BAD. Many times ur phone is on, u can see all the bars of network on ur phone, but somebody might be tryin g to call you and getting the ''switched off'' message. This is the most common problem. Also the network bars keep disappearing every now and then. (I live and work in quite central areas of Ludhiana where there is apparantly no signal problems)


ROAMING : Automatic roaming is impossible. Travelling on highways, you have to switch off and on ur phone every time u cross one city. This is the only way to stay connected while travelling in cars on highways.


TOO SMALL KEYS FOR CONVENIENCE : earlier I was attracted by the small size of phone, but I realized later that the keys were actually to small to work ergonomically with. U tend to press the neighbouring key with ur fingers all the time. Maybe girls will find it easier to use with their thinner fingers


SLOW KEY RESPONSE : You press a key for some function, then wait for one second for that action to take place on ur phone. Very slow key response.


BATTERY : Average


CHARGER : Be prepared to buy a new one every 2-3 months. It doesnt work any longer than that. Yes, original chargers.


GAMES : Useless........ they are there just for the name of it. I could never play even a single one in these two years. Games are boring and with slow key response, they get irritating too. Nothing like snakes of Nokia


RINGTONES : A good pack comes loaded in the phone. Downloaded ringtones would not work 6 out of ten times. The rest 4 don't sound very nice on this phone.


FINALLY I WOULD SUGGEST NEVER BUY AN ERICSSON.


MY DREAM PHONE : A NOKIA MACHINE IN A T 66 BODY. I'D GIVE ANYTHING FOR THAT COMBO.
