I agree with all, I have had this phone for over 4 years because I like candy bar style phones and it looks kinda cute. I have dropped it a thousand times and yet...it keeps on working. Lately though I discovered that it does not connect calls, so I have to shut it off and back on to make it work again. Unfortunately its not the fastest rebooter. I find the reception is impeccable and the quality of hearing the other person is very good. So I guess I will keep it for another while, since nowadays only flip phones seem to be sold :( Less

I have had this terminator of a phone for a few years now. The software for it is wonderful. I can store multiple numbers for everyone, and have a little icon indicating if its a mobile number or a home number. Pictures and ringtones are customized for each person, and I can send out mass text messages to my buddies when I'm having a get together. The thing is indestructable, which is one of the reasons I've kept it. I use the thing for an alarm clock, and its alarm also has it vibrate. I've left it at work many times, and each time I come in to see its dropped from a 7 foot shelf area onto the ground. I've dropped it in the rain onto pavement dozens of times. Its been in a wet pocket during rainy music concerts. I never think twice about going into a mosh pit with it. I will get broken before this phone does. My only problem... gotta clean the joystick thing every day, or it gets stuck in any given direction. Less

I've had the phone for a couple of years. I've lost it in the car, dropped it a number of times, just like the other reviewer. The phone's latest adventure was that I lost it in the blizzard in Washington, DC a couple of weeks ago. It fell out of my pocket and got buried in 6 inches of snow, but I didn't notice for an hour or so. By then I was on the other side of the city. I called the people who lived at the place I thought I dropped it, and asked if they could try calling it to find it in the snow. They couldn't hear it. After more than a week, the snow melted enough that they found the phone. I had flown back across the country and even ordered a replacement phone. Their son told me yesterday he had it and brought it to me. It not only fired up right away, but after a little wiggling around it is now even charging back up and seems to work just fine. Less

I have a bad habit of dropping my cellphones. I have broken and paid for at least 3 cellphones. This ends up being a costly procedure. Cellphones even on the bottom end are usually about $150 US Dollars. I have had my sony ericsson T300 for almost a year and have done worse things to this phone than any other phone I have ever owned. I dropped it 10 feet off a loading dock onto black top STRAIGHT DOWN. It scratched the case, but everything still works fine. I was thrown in a pool with it in my pocket, it fell out of my pocket and remained at the bottom of the pool for several minutes, and after drying it out overnight, it still worked, even though two other people who wound up in the pool with their cellphones had to go to great lengths to get theirs to work again. My only complaint is it is a little slow to respond to menu entries. Signal is much better than my old nokia 3310 and features are amazing for the price. I HIGHLY recommend this phone to anyone who is sick of breaking phones. Less

bad phone to buy over priced

Stay Away...save your money

I have owned 4 cell phone since I started in this new wave of technology. This phone has been the worst one of them all. The volume on the phone is terrible. The accessaries are VERY limited. The reception is horrible. The only thing I can say good about the T300 is that it is easy to navigate.
