Panasonic GD67 review

 Review: February 2003  
 

Last updated March 2005

Rating:

In a nutshell: An entry level colour phone.

 

The Panasonic GD67 is a "fun" phone, with some good stuff at a budget price. It includes some great features such as a colour display, polyphonic ringtones and customisable pictures in the back cover. The GD67 includes EMS (Enhanced Messaging Service), which enables you to add pictures, animations and sound to your messages. However the phone suffers from software bugs, poor ringtones and generally poor audio. It is now hopelessly outdated.

Panasonic GD67 features include:

  • WAP, GPRS
  • 256 colour display
  • Polyphonic ringtones (16 voice) plus recordable ringtones
  • EMS (Enhanced Message Service)
  • Predictive text messaging
  • 5-way navigational joystick
  • Wallpaper
  • Size: 109 x 45 x 20 mm
  • Weight: 81g
  • Battery standby: up to 190 hours
  • Battery talktime: 1.5 - 6.5 hours
  • Vibration alert
  • Dual band

It is 2007 and i am still using it. I had this phone since 2003, never had a problem. not even once. It is lightweight, small, works perfectly and very stylish.. Also very solid. This is an excellent mobile phone which does the job pretty well and it is definitely for people who likes to have a non-camera phone. Totally recommended!

Well, I've had this phone for 5 years now, and it's aged well. First off, forget about it's extra features - polyphonic ringtones, EMS etc. it's all rubbish. Keypad is also too small and dinky, making texting impractical. But see it as a phone - just a phone - and it's excellent. Call quality is clear and loud, and it's extremely rugged. I've thrown and dropped the thing loads of times, it can withstand a lot.

This phone is just average. Some good points are, size, weight, coloured screen, joystick, polyphonic ringtones (but you expect all this from your mobile these days), it also has this lil voice recording thing, which i found to be quite fun..lol, but anyway..thats about it really. Bad points are - when your txting, theres a delay on the screen, so the words dont actually come up as soon as your write them, the games aren't very good, it sometimes just turns itself of randomly. Hmm, well, anyway it was a good phone in the past but i wouldn't recommend to buy it now, abit dated!

I have had this phone for a year, and it is alright. It is small and light. The phone lock is good, cause you have to put a code in. It is easy to navigate. The joysyick is a cool idea. t looks quite nice. It can hold loads of messages about 100. It has a currency converter. There are some disadvantages. The plastic back is rubbish and easily scratches. The bottom easily falls off and is very weak aswell, so it breaks. It is flimsy and fragile in all. It turns itself off sometimes. When writing a message the screen goes dark and resets itself occasionally. The wap is very, very slow. The silver cover wears away very easily. Writing text messages is extremely slow. The games are possibly the worst possible, ever! kimang and atum! uter bull! The ringtones are c##p. The 250 colours are c##p aswell. the list is endless... Not worth the money i paid. But hey dont let me put you off it.

I got this phone when it first came out, and i was not at all dissapointed. It cost a lot less than all the Nokias out there, and was a lot more stylish and personal. Once i'd found out how to set the ringtones to a higher volume and download screensavers and ringtones, i started to think it was a damn good phone! However, i came back from holiday this year and my phone started to display a small red mail logo saying my inbox was full, or my media folders were full. It was a technical problem so i got it fixed for free, with free special delivery. It worked for a while, but now the same has happened. There are also some more problems i've come across: -The back cover has small bits which break off at the slightest hint of prsssure. Mine came off when i left the back cover off once by accident in my pocket. -The small piece of plastic which holds the back cover on does not match up with the phone. This may be a small problem but it looks ugly. -The battery life had decreased severely when i got the phone back from repairs -WAP sometimes fails to load up even with a full signal. So, a word of warning, if you're going to buy it then be prepaired to put up with some problems. It's a good small, lightweight phone with some great features but is let down by poor build quality.

Ok people, lets be logic about this. Now you may have read all the reveiws about the phone having problems, and I did myself. Now what seems to be happening is there are a few issues on faulty phones, here are the main ones: Screen goes dim inbox full when empty phone too quite rubbish games & ringtones paint comes off back cover comes off/gets scratched Now I have studied the phone on the web and studied my GD67 for a month and most of these problems above are either opion,faults,or self incapability(a.k.a your not doing something the way you should be).I have studied these problems and i hope i can help you with your phone: Screen goes dim -This may be a simple case of low power -Or it could be that you have been treating your phone "abusively".Maybe you have shone light directly at the screen? -If your phone is old, the screen may have worn out Try turning your phone off, taking the battery and sim out for an hour then putting them back in. Inbox full when empty -May i just comment why some people don't wish to get their phones fixed? -I myself don't save messages so bear with me, try doing what i call the "Rest" method: turning your phone off, taking the battery and sim out for an hour then putting them back in. Phone too quite -put the vibrate on, and unless your in an thick eskimo suit you should be able to feel it. -adjust the volume -this also depends on were you store your phone, if its in the bottom of a bag, no wonder you won't here it. Rubbish games and tones -this is a matter of opinion,knowledge and capability: --OPINION: you may just dislike the games --KNOWLEDGE: you may not know how to play the games --CAPABILITY: you may not be able to play the games well, therefore causing frusration making your brain think that the games are rubbish because you can't do them. Paint comes off -this is a bit more serious, but obviously I would be carefull with the phone and not spend time picking at the paint to see if it does come off you critics! :-D Back cover comes off/gets scratched -you may not be putting the cover on correctly, make sure you push the I/O cover at the bottom over it properly -as for getting scratched, be carefull! now that thats covered theres one more thing: customization. yes, there aren't any really good ringtones/downloads (in most people's opinion) out there, but remember the vioce ringer, simply play a CD/Tape/MP3 up to the phone and record it! OK it's only 16 seconds but hey! It seems that people critising the phone are people with faulty ones, as for me, my phones works fine! post if you need any info, because if there's someone who'll know about the GD67 it'll be me (i don't mean to bragg but i've studied the phone and your problems for a month) PS. This is not a review, it is help/explanation/guide post and you will notice i rate the phone 4 star for it's good points on it's good phones and bad points on the fawlty phones.

A FEW YEARS GO I HAD THE OLD SAVVY PHONES, WHICH I THINK IS BETTER THAN THIS ONE. I TRADED IT IN FOR THE 3310 WHICH I LOST ABOUT A YEAR AGO, BUYING THE GD67, BIG MISTAKE. IT SWITCHES ITSELF OF AND BACK ON AGAIN. I DIDN'T EVEN GET A MANUAL WITH IT! THERE IS NO RINGTONES OR ANYTHING YOU CAN ADD TO IT. I BOUGHT IT WHEN IT WAS AT ITS HIGHEST VALUE ABOUT A YEAR AGO AND ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS, COME BACK NOKIA, ALL IS FORGIVEN!!!

I think this phone is quite different as every one else seems to have nokias, but I think this phone is better than a Nokia as it is very individual. I'm not maddly keen on the tones though and there aren't really any places that you can get free tones from. Overall though I think it is a great phone.

This was my first phone and everyone around had Nokias, but I decided to get a Panasonic and I am not the least bit dissapointed. It's light weight, has loads of memory, I can store upto 100 text messages. The GPRS on it works great. The only negative on the phone would be the ring tones are not loud enough. Overall a great buy.

I got the phone as a present for my 23rd birthday and it was great i liked everything about it until the screen started going darker and darker, i couldn't find anything to download for it and also the battery power was lasting about 3hours. I coped with this for a while then the phone kept switching itself on and off on its own. then to get the phone working right i had to disconnect the battery and attach it again. I phoned the company i got the phone from and they sent me another one (exactly the smae thing happened 3 more times) I have now gone back to a NOKIA i would not recommmend this phone to anyone i have had nothing but trouble from not 1 but 4 of the phones so no one else take that chance i will not be buying another panasonic phone EVER.

Great little phone that I Got in May. Ringtones and games are garbage but downloading is easy, just search for Nokia java games or nokia polyphonic ringtones on google mobile search and loads come up, most of them work. I was aiming for a camera phone so i was a bit disapointed that there was no attachment, that I know about. The pic in the back idea is great, as it reflects exactly who you are. Bit awkward to cut pics in the odd shape it is but i managed it so anyone can. Problems are that the joystick hurts on your thumb as it is sharply edged and not smooth so after a while of gaming it will hurt. Another is the messages - the outbox can store 100 sent messages, but it cannot be turned off. AND you have to delete every single one of them individually when it gets full. there is no delete all option. Finally, when it is dropped into a river it tends to damage the internal arial making it impossible to fix as you cannot replace it. (believe me i know, it has happened) Now I am using a Nokia 3510i, no comparison, GD67 is a hell of a lot better.

I do not know how anyone could rave about this phone. It is a bag of sh**e. Within 6 months it did not ring, nor could I hear anyone that rang me. This leads to a strange concept where you end up sounding like an answer machine and everyone thinks u are mad!! Apart from that, it\'s fiddley, a pain in the a**e to compose messages, the phone book is to long winded to use and there are very few things available for it (i.e. ringtones etc). DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!

This phone is ok could be better though. I like this phone because it is light, you can change the back cover to whatever you choose and you can record the a whole telephone conversation and play it back. The badside of things is that it turns itself off sometimes and the games and ringtones are crap!! Will some one PLEASE tell me where to get ringtones and logos from apart from the internet browser on my phone? Also how the hell do you get a screensaver on the phone?????? To people thinking of buying this phone who are reading these reveiws - DON'T!!!

Where do i start...Firstly i was obviously conned into buying this phone in the first place but the retailer (most likely she was desperate to get rid of them). A couple of weeks having the phone, ok i lie a couple of days, the screen started to get dimmer and dimmer etc until i needed a torch to see the thing, then i kept trying to get ringtones for it, and as somebody else said, it saved them into read only messages, so again more money, when it actually saved the ringtones the ring volume was very quiet, and poor quality. I was disappointed with the features. The general keys of the phone were very fiddley, especially the stick. The only thing i liked about it was the size, and a very addictive game. Ok i've gone on enough, basically i got rid and swore never to buy another panasonic invention.

I bought this phone when i thought my nokia had got to the stage where it was out dated for both its size and looks. I looked at many other phones before deciding to buy this one, on paper this phone looks fantasic but in the real world I'm sorry to say it doens't live up to its expectations. Alot of my complaints are shared by many other users of this phone. 1. Slow when texting, it can't keep up if you are even an average speed texter 2. To find out the time you have to wait too long, it may only be like 5 seconds but you want to be to just take a peek at it to find out the time not pull it out your pocket and wait to tell the time. 3. Too fragile, the paint comes off way too easily and when dropped case gets damaged too easily. 4. Panasonic claimed that you could download extras for this phone when there really isn't anything worth downloading, no new games or decent backgrounds or even ring tones! I spent an hour just looking for one ringtone and it was in the charts! 5. Low amount of memory, if you have read any other reviews you will see an emerging pattern where the phone says that the inbox is full even when its completely empty, it can only store 10 texts also when many other phones in the same price range can store at least x3 the amount. 6. When you recieve a text message on the inbox menu it doesn't tell you who the message is from this makes it difficult if your trying to find a message you recieved previously and want to recall it. The only way you can find out who the message is from is to scroll through the whole message to the bottom, this can become quite annoying when your looking for one message from somebody. 7. Even though at the time this phone was released it was the cheapest colour display phone it wasn't worth it, it only has 256 colours, this is of course much better than a plain singular colour display phone. There are a list of other what I'd call problems with this phone but my overall impression and opinion of this phone is, don't waste your time or money on it. Find another phone company, I went out and bought another nokia.

Hmmm, nice at first but then you realise: The polytones sound terrible and there's basically nowhere to get new ones. They are only 3-track and not 16-track as advertised. The WAP access time has to be measured with a sundial. The messaging service is quite good, I will admit, but you don't know who the text is from until you've read it. I know that on Nokia's (I've never owned one but know people who do) that you can see the name of the sender if he/she is in your phonebook before you read the message. The games are pretty poor, the second one I don't even understand! The phone does look okay, and is quite cheap, but there's not too much going for it to be fair. Mine's got a faulty memory and I'm not having it fixed, I'm getting a whole different phone.

I think it is great and have had no problems with receiving free ring tones like some other people have. Also no problems with the back cover falling off in fact have had loads of compliments on the picture of my son that I have in it. Only drawback to me is that every time you send a message it gives you the option to change the number you have already chosen so several clicks later and the message is finally sent. I would definitely recommend it and it is much more fun than the last Nokia I had. There are now loads of panasonic ring tones available on the net you just need to look and see.

I was thrilled to bits to begin with, but then the problems started: 1) About 3 months after getting it, the onboard memory packed up, can't save anything onto the phone at all, says inbox full when empty, but can still get SMS. I'm NOT getting it fixed. 2) Hardly any polytones available, poor sound quality. 3) Battery runs down in no time at all. 3) Screen quality poor. Instruction book pants! 4) This is a phone for girls and gay men (I'm neither!!), Panasonic sold it to me on the pretence that it could do things that it, in reality, can't. Their ringtone previews on their site for the GD67 sound nothing like those on the phone, and the best one on the phone (type 10 Pachelbel's Canon) slows and stops in the middle and starts up again. I feel so ripped off and am glad this lump of s**t has been discontinued.

Love the colour screen, cheapish price, joystick control and love the menu system. The phone is a very goos size and very simple to use. I have also like being able to personalise it by changing the picture on the back But why can\'t I select to have a ring AND vibration on at the same time. It would also be good if more ring tones and backgrounds were easily avalible. But my biggest gripe is WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND designed those terrible terrible games. I would recommend ths phone to nearly everyone tho.

Message writting takes ages as if u wanna use 2 letters from the same button u gotta w8 instead of pressing a button to move on.

This is a pretty rubbish phone. It\'s extremely flimsy, the silver coated plastic rubs off in no time. I\'ve havd it for 9 months and it looks very tatty. Texting is slow and awkward, periodically it crashes when sending texts, and resets the phone. Often it turns itself off when people ring me (even when battery is fully charged). There was nothing in the instructions about how to make the vibrate mode work. After six months I accidentally discovered that if you hold the hash button down the vibrate mode is activated. Now the speaker cuts in and out when you squeeze the phone lightly. Awful. Disappointing, every other Panasonic product I\'ve owned has been excellent. They can replace it if they like... vince(nospam!)@thevelours.com

I am a very satisfied customer having used my first and new panasonic Gd 67. It is a wonderful phone for a good price and I am happy that I bought a good one to start with. All that I can say to the ppl with previous comments it is all Bull that they have put on the problems they have wtih their phones. The memory of messages is wonderful and activating the silent mode is simple. But the only problem I would say persists with this phone is the only effort u have to put in comparison of the nokias and ericssons to download the ringtones and wallpapers for the phone.

The phone is looking good. The screensavers and ringingtones are great too. But for send a message you can't do it quikly. I always used a nokia and now I use a panasinic and I'm not very happy with it.I have a bug in it when I try to send messages and the phone automatic start up again wich is strange. Panasonic after buy service is BAD really bad here. So I do not recommended if you had a nokia before other ways you can try it. I go to buy me a nokia again.

I previously had a Alcatel 606. This fone broke so I bought a Panasonic GD67. It is a good phone. The colour screen, animations, pictures, and screensavers are brilliant. There are many ringtones available on the Panasonic Site. It is very easy to use especially witht he joystick. It has two drawbacks: 1)the battery can run out very quickly 2)due to the keys being close together you occasionaly hit the cancel key when txting. However the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. A good value phone.

Overall I would say this is a very good phone. The colour screen is pretty cool, its very small and light. More durable than I imagined after droping it whilst at the football on to the concrete. Not even a scratch! The polyphonic ringtones are great (if anyone can tell me where I can get some free via wap it would be much appreciated). There is loadsa room for phone numbers and texts.As for the games I couldn't give a f**k about them. I have better things to do with my time than play games on a mobile. lynds777@yahoo.co.uk

This phone is great for people not bothered with ringtones or games. I liked the phones background pictures but that was about it. I found my battery only lasted a day and a half before cutting out. I also think that the phone has to be one of the worst to txt on. After using my nokia 6210, i found the buttons on the gd67 very small and often ended up pressing the wrong one. Overall, i wouldnt recommnend this phone. One becuase finding DECENT ringtones is a nightmare, the games are absolute cr@p and the phone is just generally hard to use!

YES i am talking about the Panasonic GD67. i luv my little phone it looks fantastic and the personalise cover on the rear is great. i think the only thing it lack's (aswell as the GD75) is the quiet ringtones. when i'm on the bus i can hardly hear it!! the phone is very very very very simple to use and you press and hold # to activate te vibrate for all those nit-wit's out there! i feel the phone would benefit with Samsung like ringtones which are fantastic and loud by the way. i think the colour screen is cool aswell and the hidden charger socket at the bottom. i am switching phones for a change but when the next resonably cheap phone from panasonic comes out i will defenately look into it.

First of all what is wrong with everyone, you can find polyphonic ringtones for free on CBFmobile.com also some screensavers on panapics, but I would like to say that the red icon for full inbox came up when I had only 3 messages stored and a couple of times it hasn't stored my messages, so I am going to find out about that, but I have had my phone 2 weeks and I like it, I don't like nokias, I like something different and I have it in this phone.

Hi all. Overall I like this phone. Just writing to comment on the issue of the red mail icon coming up in the left hand corner indicating that memory is full when in fact it isn't. I contacted Panasonic and they say I'll have to send it in for repair. They didn't say why though :-( But I just read in a forum online that it apparently is a firmware bug ... Well, txt is still working, ie I can receive and send text, only not save my sent messages. And no download from the web either.

I had a nokia 5110 before this phone, which is absolutely ancient, but I really regret getting rid of it now! The GD67 has been nothing but trouble...it refuses to store sent messages for some reason, and also wont let me receive any messages. The plastic flap bit at the bottom is fiddly and keeps breaking off and it is very slow when texting. The only thing that saves this phone is that the colours are pretty funky, and it looks quite cute. If you're looking for practicality rather than style, or if you're simply looking for a phone that will actually WORK, then I suggest you choose a different phone. The GD67 is simply too unreliable.

Firstly, all the people saying the phone doesn't tell you who your text messages are from are lying! Course it does! If you read the msg and get to the bottom of it, its right there surprisingly! And also it DOES tell you how long your call has lasted, as soon as you end the call it comes up on the screen. So theres either a few people with the wrong setting or your phone is broken. I think this phone is great, I didn't want it for games and stuff, I have a computer for that cr##. I wanted it for calls and text messages and it performs brilliantly for both.

God! I hate this phone. My boyfriend laughs at me, my Dad constantly keeps asking me when I am going to sell it, and I dread the bloody thing ringing in public. Suitable for a seven year old, the colours and pictures on this phone are really basic, although the abilty to change contrast etc does make them a tad easier on the eye...... still avoid the parrot screen saver at all costs. If you own this phone you will know what I mean! Boasting very limited tools, there are none of the options that you would expect to find on any phone no matter how prehistoric - simple demands such as adding someones phone number sent by text or deleting more than one text at once simply arent met. Granted these features arent necessary, but as a time saving device, the phone really fails to hit the mark. The jostick which I once thought of as a quirky features varies from being ridicuously over sensitive, to slow and sluggish, and in general this is the over view of the phone as a whole. I really do believe that Panasonic could have done a great deal more with this phone - ringtones/games/user info (you cant even see what time you sent a text at or how long your last call was!) etc, and I for one cannot wait to wave goodbye to this phone safely into the hands of my eight year old niece..... better remove the picture out of the back first though!!!!! x

No thought has gone into how someone is meant to use the phone for instance - the phone stores 100 messages but once uve filled ur inbox there is no way of deleting all the messages aside from opening each one individually and then clicking delete taking an absolute age!!! overall though good value and its not a nokia so theres two things going for it 8D
