Written on: 20/06/2005 by jameswoodworth (2 reviews written)

After having the Sony Ericsson T230 for 2 months I had to get rid of it because of the constant menu freezing. The battery life only lasted me 3 days and not very much talk time. Although it does look good and it has a very good price tag… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/03/2005 by OnyaSonya (1 review written)

The Sony Ericsson T230 is very flawed, firstly the phone freezes constantly. In the middle of phone calls, playing games, writing messages it will freeze and the only way to unfreeze it is by taking out the battery. I took it in to be repaired, after a software upgrade it is still freezing.
Seccondly is the screen quality, the display is very grainy, also too much lighting makes it very hard to see writing on the screen.
Another Flaw is the predective text, it is some what complicated. When… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/11/2004 by b3nji (1 review written)

The Sony Ericsson T230 is a great phone for everyuser. It's stylish and it packed with features. The colour screen is great but screen could have been a little bigger but its quite huge.
For the price the phone is great - got mine new for $139 and is great. Battery life is great have had it last for a week and hcarging the phone has been quicker than all my friends phone.

This is a great phone… Read Full Review

Sony Ericsson T230 - I have had this mobile phone for a few months. Battery durability is about 2 days, it often loses reception. It has a very slow menu. When I was buying it, it was "best by" for this money. Now I don't think like that… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/08/2004 by awais yaqub (1 review written)

The Sony Ericsson T230 is the coolest design I've ever seen in this price range, really impressed by the features everything you can imagin but no infrared. If you wanna show off your mobile let them play V-RALLY2 with vibration on .
Polyphonics manageing phonebook etc are really nice, you will explore new things day by day what can you do with this cheap mobile.
But some problem with LCD cover dust can easily get in like my friend's T230… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/07/2004 by sarahgoben (1 review written)

The Sony Ericsson T230 has great screen quality and good size too. The T230 is slimline and light weight. I prefer having a seperate attachment camera which helps the phone to stay lighter. It came with two preinstalled games and if you vist www.sonyericsson.com you can get 4 more games, plus wallpaper, ringtones etc. If you're a business person this phone would be great as it allows you read your e-mails on the spot. The menus are very easy to naviagte too.
Although a phone is essentially for… Read Full Review

“Sony Ericsson T230 Review: I tend to get bored with...”

Written on: 22/07/2004 by ExeterDave (1 review written)

Sony Ericsson T230 Review: I tend to get bored with phones quite quickly, and often end up replacing my pre-pay handset three, maybe four times a year. This used to cost me a fortune, because the re-sale value of phones £150-250 isn't that great, & you can guarantee that within three months most models have been superceded, so you end up getting a pittance for second-user phones.

So, for the last year, I've kept a strict budget - NEVER spend more than £100 on a phone! Even now the T230 is… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/07/2004 by PhilHarris68 (1 review written)

I know that I have put features in the good and bad points but that's because that the T230 has a fair number of features that can be added in the form of attachments (cameras, infrared adapters, Bluetooth) but in this day and age a camera and infrared should be built in. As with all the Sony/Sony Ericssons that I have had (Sony Z7, Sony Ericsson T300, Sony Ericsson P900) it's very, very easy to use and to navigate around the menus all you pretty much have to do is push a number on your keypad… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/06/2004 by preciouskdg (3 reviews written)

I have had my Sony Ericson T230 mobile phone for about six months now. It was on special offer in Woolworths for £59.99 which was half price to their usual charge! I thought ' Bargain!!' and bought it!!

I have had a look at a few websites and the price which seems pretty standard is £90.00.

The phone comes with the usual charger, battery, a necklace attachment for carrying the phone and a camera attachment! There is a quick start guide and a full manual. They are very clear and easy to read… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/06/2004 by mike9 (1 review written)

I've had my Sony Ericsson T230 for about 6 months now, the phone is good. But if you want it to be a toy this isn't really the phone for you. The screen colour is good, internets good, the battery's awesome. I had it on standby for 2 and it was still going. Bad thing about this phone is that you can't change covers and the cover scratches easy. I have dropped it twice and it's fine apart from that it is badly scratched at the top. The sound's not that loud but the voice recorder is good, you… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/01/2004 by Snookiewaldz (12 reviews written)

I am a Nokia user before but I tried Sony Ericsson this time for a change. The Sony Ericsson T230 mobile phone is small but packed with many useful features not found in other phones of similar size. The screen color is more richer compared to other old Sony Ericsson phones. Messaging is a breeze, lots of options and add-ins to choose from, you can attached pictures and sounds. You can even send an email message directly from your phone if you have set an account!
I just don't like inputing… Read Full Review
