    Was given SH888 by neighbor years ago, never used it. Decided to give it a go after 15 years (2020) little battery didn't seem to work, bought big one (hard to source but they do still exist). Deciphered pin-code (logical thinking, duh...) It works! Big battery is better in the hand, ergonomics are good, can operate in one hand, good sound, pleasant to use. Bulky, heavy, yes, but solid. My Nokia Banana is great, but fiddly ergonomics, sound no better, battery-life is far superior, of course, more bells and whistles but I don't need them anyway. I should have made the effort earlier, the SH is a VERY good phone, all I need.

            This phone has OK battery life but not amazing compared to Nokia and the call quality is fine. Considering its brick like build the durability is not amazing the phone having considerable chunks nicked out the side after a concrete slip. Overall is a very good phone if all you want is basic.

                        my second mobile phone, loved it soo much! When I used it in university, in 1999, to connect my notebook to internet via irda, people looked at me like I was doing black magic! Too bad it was stolen after only one year...

                          You're my first mobile/business phone in the early of this millennium, about 12 years ago. And now, you're became my memory because I've sold U in early 2004. Oh my gentle ERICSSON, where r u now? T_T I love U and ur 'three nice blue simplify lines' mark. You've just being a name now, following a brand name of a populer Japan consumers product; SONY. Why not 'ERICSSONY'?

                              I whish I kept the phone as backup. You'd get some looks pulling out in 2011. The backlit buttons that couldn't rub out were great. Built like a sherman tank. I programmed star wars as a ring tone - it took bloody ages.

                                Had this phone when I was in the emergency services. Got the S&*t knocked out of it on more occassions than I care to remember and it still carried on working. It was a fantastic phone in it's day and is still a nice size phone.
                                I actually found it in my loft last week all complete (charger, spare battery, manual, serial data lead, car charger and even the chatboard/kayboard. Turned it on, and what do you know the phone actually switched ON!!! after 5 years of sitting in the loft, the battery was showing 2 bars left. I travel quite a bit now so I need a tri-band (mainly to the US) phone otherwise I would be tempted to start using this again :-)

                                  This phone was bloody fantastic. Unlike Sony Ericsson, you never had to worry about an Ericsson phone being rugged or not. It would always survive a hit or a splash. I used to throw this phone across the office floor whenever I got upset, and it'd make it. One time it got stuck in the ceiling due to the antenna. However, it all came to a sad end when I once dropped it by accident on its microphone. Apparently, that was its Achilles heel!

                                        Superb phone. For those who need a phone and not a mobile discotec the SH 888 is the biz. Made of diecast alloy it is robust, it is reliable, the sound is good, the antenna recieves weak signals well. Battery life isn't to modern standards but at 4 1/2 hours talk time and 80 standby it has stood me well enough. Never had a problem. They made quality in those days. Wish they still made it.
