i was lucky enough to come across the G.D. 88 buy pure chance,somebody left it sitting on top of the local mail box, & at the time i was using a pretty well clapped out nokia 3315,anyway after waiting for somebody to ring to request there phone back in which they never did i tried my sim card in the 88 & presto we''ve been great mates ever since & to think all it cost me was Aud $$ 10.00 for a charger anyhow im most impressed with all this phone has to offer.

Love it!

I have had this phone for 2 1/2 years and can''t bring myself to replace it. Great phone, love the display quality and the camera is so handy to have! Easily uploads via infrared to my computer.

Good quality and reliability

crap reception

Love the phone except for the reception. Worst phone I've seen for losing calls or not getting a good signal

really not good

there is no word to discribe this phone.

I recently purchased the GD-88, what can i say....this phone has really suprised me. Before I had the GD-88 I was using the Motorola V300. I thought switching to an older phone would be kinda dumb but I did it anyways. I made the right move. The picture quality speaks for its self...compared side by side the GD-88 blew the V300 away. Larger, sharper color screen, also easy navigating though the menus...man am i impressed. But every review has its cons. The GD is lacking the 850MHz which makes service in some areas weak or non-exsistant. Over all Good work Panasonic! Less

Great Phone but Overpriced

When I first got this phone, I thought the price was unbelievably crazy. Almost $400. But overall the picture is great, battery life is good, data filing system is all over, so it was confusing at first. Panasonic needs more games though. The camera is OK. Reception is so-so. Overall I give it a 7.5/10

Good Phone Nice Features

This is a good solid phone, with some really cool features, my only complaint is the siginal. Rogers new 850Mhz network is vastly superior to the 1900Mhz one.
