Written on: 19/04/2005 by OldManEmu (1 review written)

The Ericsson T18s is a standard mobile phone with not many features. I just brought it in Australia for A$30 and haven't had the problem with battery yet. It's a mobile phone, strong signal, it's OK… Read Full Review

“Had the Ericsson T18s for almost 3 years. Worked...”

Written on: 18/02/2002 by T18s user. (1 review written)

Had the Ericsson T18s for almost 3 years. Worked excellent all the time, except that i had to change the battery pack, due to extremely short standby time, less then 20 hours. (like 15 EUR cost after 2 years). Beginning to get a contact problem during charging, but as long as you make sure its connected properly, no problem.
Has been dropped several times from a man-height, without any problems. Has all the features that you could possibly need in a cellphone. Brilliant phone!… Read Full Review

“I have used an Ericsson T18s for 10 months. ”

Written on: 15/02/2002 by Ericsson User. (1 review written)

I have used an Ericsson T18s for 10 months.
It turns itself off after few seconds to few minutes from being turned on. (Just as other people pointed out on this review page).
The same is happenning on T10s as well. These were brand-new units (not second-hand or demo units) sold in Australia. I am now trying to contact with Ericsson and my service provider.
I liked the feature set of T18s so I rated it highly. Reception has been very good. I like its simple styling although I wished if it… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/02/2002 by Jayne. (1 review written)

Overall, i think the Ericsson T18s phone is pretty good although it has been around for a while it's still modern especially flip and ringing tones. I swopped my Nokia 5110 for this one as it is small and handy without fuss. I would recommend this phone and so far have had no problems with it!… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2002 by Ben. (1 review written)

I really like it as it's a good, honest phone. Unlike others that try to be trendy accessories it doesn't pretend to be anything other than a phone!
However, it has dated very quickly and doesn't really cut it anymore and can't match even the most basic Nokia. Texting is tricky but bearable. The battery doesn't fit snuggly so the phone switches off by itself sometimes but this is no big deal.
I've had mine 2 years and am about to change to the Sony Z7 - same style phone but 21st century… Read Full Review

Totally agree with this review. I've had 5 over the last 12 months because of the phone turning itself off and the LCD blanking out. Thank god for Orange care!!! The biggest pile of pants I've ever used to communicate with!!

Yer, also agree. Blutac also does the job nicely. Apart from that, this phone is very good. Just brought all singing all dancing Sony cmd-Z7, and yes it's good, but have had a few problems. I think the poor Ericson T18 has had it's day, unfortunately, cos mine lasting. Still got some 'old school' style i think. Best feature--very clear when you had a voicemail or Text message.

Written on: 22/11/2001

The reason why your phone keeps turning itself off is your battery contacts are dirty or worn. Get an eraser and gently clean the gold contacts and your problem should be solved.

Written on: 11/09/2001 by Mr Bob. (1 review written)

I borrowed an Ericsson T18 from work because i was annoyed with my trium mars hanging all of the time.
Fairly good phone, looked quite cool.

Buttons hard to press, made texting a pain.

I liked it till it started to turn itself off for no reason, this is something i know some friends have had problems with, with ericsson phones in general.

Wouldn't buy an ericsson at all :(
I'm going to give it 3 out of ten for being less stable than my trium!!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/07/2001 by Del. (1 review written)

I had a PF768, which I owned for a year, which got stolen and my insurance replaced it with the T18.

When using it for the first time, the T18 started to switch off by itself and when it was on it switched off whenever I opened the flip! Even my PH768 didn't do that, although I got it replaced 5 times!

I would never recomend the T18, although it isn't being produced anymore. (Thank God)The T18 was and is a match for the Nokia phones, now and when it was first released. I replaced the T18 with… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/06/2001

I am on my fourth T18 in 6 months. They have a problem whereby the display goes totally blank but the phone is still switched on, as the signal led is still flashing and it still receives calls. My phone operator and ericsson do not believe there is a problem !

Jongers.'s Response to Elvin.'s Review

Written on: 17/01/2003

My T18s screen would also go blank after just sitting in my bag. My wife's T18s would actually go off. Ericsson would not accept there was a problem. It is very frustrating.
I'm not convinced the problem relates to a loose battery, because I have tried to loosen and jiggle the battery manually to see if it makes the phone go off but it doesn't. They just seem to go off when they have been sitting for a while.

Written on: 20/05/2001 by NickH. (1 review written)

The T18s is a heap of junk! Buttons need to be pressed several times before keypad responds, then several numbers show up at once! For SMS, the phone is a nightmare. Turns itself off for no apparent reason. SIM card becomes loose by itself (says "Insert Card"). It's only because this phone belongs to my company and not to me that it hasn't been smashed in a fit of anger/frustration before now. I will be changing it as soon as I am able to! My advice: DON'T BUY ONE!… Read Full Review

Too bad your T18 didn't work... mine has served me without any of the problems you have described for over two years now! Lovely little phone! :)

Overall, not a bad phone. I've had one for around 6 months now and quite like it, except the hard button presses. I really like the active flip which means no more locking the keypad. It is also quite cheap, but I would say that Nokia's are better… Read Full Review

“The battery life is fairly naff, lasts about 2 1/2...”

Written on: 23/02/2001 by Pii. (1 review written)

The battery life is fairly naff, lasts about 2 1/2 days if left on for 15 hours a day. The keypad is absolute rubbish, you have to press each letter/number really hard (a real pain when txting). Also the letters appear very slowly and seem to be constantly trying to keep up you as you type. And of course the flip - much as I like the design, the Ericsson flips just aren't built to last. My old Motorola 8800 still has a perfect flip, but the T18 just gets weaker with every use… Read Full Review
