Awesome phone

I have had this phone for 4 years and it still works perfectly! I used it quite a bit too. After 4 years the battery is starting to go on it. However, it still holds the charge for the full week on standby (always on). But, if I used it, it would go quickly. It was very durable as well. I have dropped it serveral times, I never kept it in a case, and it always get's thrown in my purse, etc. I decided to get a new one because I started not liking the fact that whenever it would be in my purse it would push buttons. I would use the key guard alot to prevent that however. I also figured I needed to upgrade to a new phone. Less

Toggle trouble

I have owned this phone for 2 1/2 years, and use it very little. It has been good enough for me but I wouldn''t recommend it to someone who uses the cell phone often. The toggle is now temperamental. Also, the battery runs down too quickly in my view. I''m looking for a new camera-free phone now.

Pretty crappy...

I'm a utilitarian, i.e. I buy things for what they are designed (a cell phone for use as a portable land line). This phone is quite old now (maybe a year or so, and me meaning old in the way that now adays, it seems that phones are getting "old" faster). The Nokia 232, and 252 were rock solid phon... More
I'm a utilitarian, i.e. I buy things for what they are designed (a cell phone for use as a portable land line). This phone is quite old now (maybe a year or so, and me meaning old in the way that now adays, it seems that phones are getting "old" faster). The Nokia 232, and 252 were rock solid phones with great reception, no fancy features, but if you got the phone because you wanted something reliable, that was the phone for you. Anyways, the battery life on this phone is just now sucking (if you use it for 30 minutes talk time, you better have a charger handy!?), and it drops calls quite regularly (especially if you're travelling in a car around town, Red Deer?!). This forum is quite useful, and I recommend checking the reviews on a phone before you buy! Less

Good enough

I am at the end of my two year contract with Verizon and am changing phones under their every 2 year upgrade program. The 8300 had been a good and dependable enough phone over this period. The reception has always been great as has the sound quality with both the normal and speaker mode. There is nothing fancy about the phone, which suited my needs when I got it. The single user voice commands work pretty well but it does get confused every now and then. The keys all seem to be large enough, but I don't like the center menu toggle switch. It is too easy to press it in when you are trying to toggle up or down and select a menu you really don't want. The main complaints that I have had over the past two years is that a)every now and then it will go into limbo. Everything looks OK but there is no signal strength indicated even though I am in an area that has great signal. The only way to recover from this fault is to remove the battery and put it back in. Everything resets and works normal. It is difficult to spot the failure without a very good look at the display. b) It is too easy to turn the phone off. You should have to hold the "end" key down for several seconds to shut it down, but often it will power off with a quick hit on the button when ending a call. Other than that, the size, weight and functions are all good. It does what a phone is supposed to do. Less

Two weeks after warrenty was up...

I have had this phone for a little over a year. Two weeks exactly after the warrenty was up my phone BROKE, I was talking on it and it just shut down, it turned it's self off and on over and over, and eventually crashed taking my phone book with it. Today I got a new phone, exactly like the first..... More
I have had this phone for a little over a year. Two weeks exactly after the warrenty was up my phone BROKE, I was talking on it and it just shut down, it turned it's self off and on over and over, and eventually crashed taking my phone book with it. Today I got a new phone, exactly like the first.. and the ringer doesn't work. I absoulutely loved this phone, I have small hands and the buttons and joystick worked great for me as well as not having TOO many functions. However I really don't think it is worth the hassle of having a phone that doesn't work! Less

Phone's ok

...carrier sucks(Telus). Been shafted twice thus far for minutes. It has a major design flaw though, if it's flopping around loose in your shirt pocket or something it can turn itself on/off. The ringer can go off at the most inoppertune moments.

Not bad

I've had this phone for about a year now, and it was really great at first, very usefull, excellent performance, but of course after a year, every cell phone starts to fade away its performance in terms of calls ended, speaker volume also had a temporary problem for 2 days, and also the signal stren...

I've had this phone for about a year now, and it was really great at first, very usefull, excellent performance, but of course after a year, every cell phone starts to fade away its performance in terms of calls ended, speaker volume also had a temporary problem for 2 days, and also the signal strengh was lesser than originally bought. So in a few words, good but need of a new one after owning it for year or 2. Less
