Still offered in Canada

 

Feb 7, 2002 by Fred Grosby

For Canadian readers, the A1228di is still being offered by Rogers AT&T, although I'm not sure for how much longer.

My A1228d differs from the Phonescoop description in the following ways:

* It has a NiMH battery; I'm told this is the only batttery available.
* It has an external antenna, as has every one I've ever seen.
* It's published weight is 6.1 ounces.

Yes, it's heavier than most. Yes, it's a handful. And yes, it's sure basic. But it will maintain a connection when other phones have given up, it's menus are intuitive and easy to use, and it seems to be tough as nails. By comparison, a bottom-line Nokia feels, well, cheap.

Reliable and Tough

 

Aug 3, 2004 by Eric Sharf

Good, solid phone for anyone who needs the basics. I've had this phone for almost 5 years, and haven't had a single problem. It's tough too -- I've dropped it on concrete, and it just keeps working.

The only shortcomings are a relatively short battery life and lack of vibration alert, but I can live without them.

If you need fancy toys, though, this isn't for you.

I like this phone. Is basic. Tough. Very good overall. Is the most reliable cell phone!!! Good for prepaid and elderly people. Plus Ericsson heritage! I recommend it!
