I used that phone for about a couple of years. Pros: - Clam shell design: small, light - Watch display on the front - Simplicity - Nice ringtone voice - Alarms, Calendars, phone groups - Durable: dropped many many times, drowned in water at least twice, went to a washing machine (that made its end came near) Limitations: - If you look for camera, bluetooth, infrared, MP3 player, internet, data storage, games, it may not be suitable. - Did not enjoy the design after opening the clam shell

whilst carryoing out my hoby of buying and selling mobile phones I came across the Z300i. although i have tried most phones form time to time with all the bells and whistles I don't need these for my personal use. I use a phone as a phone a nd never use the cameras, MP3 players FM radios etc so i only need a basic phone. This Z399i is the best little phone I have come acros and is very easy to use, it has along battery life, looks quite good and has a changeable cover. As a basic phone I rate this the best I have used.

The phone is nice looking, but battery backup is very poor and requires charging everyday even it is not fully used.

The Z300i is easy to use, light, simple and relatively cheap. If all you want is a phone and just a phone (for budget reasons, simplicity or out of principle) then this phone is a good choice. The lack of bells and whistles means that the Z300i has a longer battery life, and I've dropped mine to the floor several times and it works like a charm. The only thing to complain about is that the microphone is a bit soft, and it's easy to hold it away from your mouth. As a consequence, several of my friends say I have to speak up when talking to them. Other than that I'm very satisfied.

Good looking, lightweight and easy to use, what else does a mobile phone need? It isn't as good as the more expensive models but it's a good phone and a good choise at this price.
Reviewed by Barry from Australia on 9th Mar 2006
This is my first mobile phone and does the job intended apart from the external display which tells lies! In less than perfect signal reception areas this display can show a strong signal indication but a weaker signal strength is indicated on the main display when the phone is opened, even an "Emergency Calls Only" message sometimes, its a great feature that doesnt work so well. I've learned to ignore it but the phone was checked by the distributor and no fault found with it, its just the way it is. First impressions are lasting and it will have some influence on my choice of a replacement when the time comes.
