FABULOUS PHONE

 

Oct 29, 2003 by TDLicious

I own a whole collection of various GSM phones, and this one is quite unique to them all and I have been VERY impressed with it.

PROS: It IS the size of a tic tac box. It has more features than you would expect in a phone so small. Good speakerphone feature. EXCELLENT variety of ring tones. ALL ARE UNLOCKED as no carrier offers it. Price. (Got mine for $150) This list could go on and on, so let me just say it has as many features as 90% of the GSM phones out there!

CONS: To me, NONE!

It doesn't have a camera, but I still see NO NEED for a camera on your cell phone.

SUMMARY: Want a TINY TINY GSM phone that has most current features (excluding camera) that looks cool, is 2.29 ounces(WAY LIGHT) and can either fit in you mini-change-pocket or hang from your neck via the neck cord? THIS IS IT!!!!

AWESOME, feature packed MICRO MICRO phone!

I have found the battery life to be good, meaning about 2.5hrs talk time with about
3.5 days stand by. Voice quality is good on both ends, no complaints from people I call.
The vibrate mode is really good, I love the cool ring tones and you can hear them quite well in most circumstances.
You can turn off back light in daytime to save in battery.
The phone has different profiles eg:Noisey, meeting,normal etc and they are all customizeable.
The reception is good not awesome indoors,but that may be more network(Fido)Microcell.
Phone is Great although a little on the small side but then again thats part of the attraction.

The GD 55 is an adorable phone at first glance. Its tiny, has a built in speaker phone, and the such. This is about where it ends.

When you are talking to other people, they will have a very difficult time, on most occasions, understanding you. There is a problem with the way the microphone picks up volume, possibly because of the extreme distance from the mouth.

The speaker phone. Its actually half way decent. Kudos to that.

However, the big catcher is that this phone will NOT work in a car. What, a car phone that doesn't work in a car? Yup. When you start driving, you will hear a clicking sound, which will get faster and faster and louder and louder the faster you drive. I have a 1998 truck, and a 1982 Toyota hatchback. Forget ever using the phone in the Toyota. The phone does not filter out the signals created by the engine, and makes so much static, that you must pull over to use the phone. In a newer car, the engine interference was only about half as much, but still more than acceptable. Even in the newer truck, in most cases I had to pull over to the side of the road to use this phone.

So yes, its a great looking phone, but there are microphone issues and engine filtering issues that make it all but useless. If you plan to use it less than 10 minutes a month, and not in a car, go for it. Otherwise, prepare to be sadly disappointed in the overall quality of sound.
