General Comments
Let it be known, this phone is a good phone for £130, I got it for Christmas on T-Mobile (UK). I hear people moaning about the reception, but with me, it's fine and much better than my last phone (Nokia 3510). The thing that attracted me to this phone was probably the colour screen and the fact that it looks good too. The colour screen is good, although it isn't quite as colourful as others I have seen. This phone has tried to live up to to the Ericsson T68, it's very similar. The keypad is similar, apart from the joystick on the T68, where the sagem has four arrowed button.

Another thing that impreseed me was the fact that is has most of the T68 features yet is under half the price. This is because the maker is pretty much unknown , but is that a bad thing. In some ways yes, someways no, your unique if you have this phone, becasue it's not that popular, so accessories are hard to come by and the internet is the only way I've seen.

The menu on this phone is very nice and user friendly, much better that the T68, although not as detailed and configurable. It's easy to use and can get to most options in 2 steps.

I also like the format screensavers, ringtones and wallpapers can be kept on the phone. Screensavers can be kept in GIF/EMS format. Ringtones can be kept in WAV/iMelody or Midi (although not many instruments). Wallapers and Graphics can be sent by GIF, JPEG, BMP, PNG, very easy. These can be sent by an IR adaptor and by a data cable (sold seperatly), the software can be downloaded from www.sagem.com.

Another thing you can do with the PC connection is using the phone as a modem, with the GPRS modem. I haven't tried this yet, but i've heard it works.



I like this phone the value for money is incredible and I shall be keeping this phone.
