    The best phone for the $ these days...

    Reliable and feature rich.

    No camera or kiddie games, monochrome screen, and somewhat large phone. If
    you don't mind these, then go for it.

    It works well, it is triband, has blue tooth. It isn't especially
    small, but it is pretty tough, and the price is right....

    You can get this phone for just UK$75 on expansys.com

    Considering it has a 4-step grey scale screen, EL backlight,
    bluetooth, infra-red, gprs, it's unbeatable for its price.

    I am absolutely happy about this phone, only improvement is that the
    ringtone could be louder. Also, I suggest you check that the software
    version is R4, if not, update it.

    The R520 and the T39 are virtually equivalent in function, the T39 is
    physically
    smaller with a flip microphone and about 2/3 screen size of the R520.
    I have both ;-) and both work most places on the planet, I use the T39 when
    I go out 'cos it
    fits in my pocket, the 520 is a bit bulky for that.
    I would say that I find GPRS on the 520 a tad more reliable than on the T39
    but
    GPRS IP access and GSM data access ( & fax) work well on either.

    Make sure the software is up to date, the old ones had a few bugs - no
    network, self power off etc.

    Look great and have loads of features.
    However - the signal strength was poor (even with the booster aerial) and I
    personally hate the Ericsson user interface.
    I loved the styling of the phone and all the accessories but just couldn't
    live with using it day-to-day.

    This phone is one of the best RF performers !!! The only one who performs
    (ed) better is the E/// R250s !!!

    Not in my experience.
    It may be good amongst Ericsson's but it cannot compare to Nokia's.
