Got one of these on contract and it was just the most unreliable piece of sh*t phone i've ever owned, because it was 4 times they had it in for repairs and replaced it with another that went wrong, so managed to get them to give me a Nokia 5110 instead, and that phone has literally gone through Hell, i mean dropped in a fire, twice through a washing machine and thrown at people in anger but it is still running, but if someone tried to give me an old Motorola i'd take it as a personal insult.

cliff, 05 Dec 2009what a piece of sh*t i had the misfortune of buying this li... moreWell, I have one too, bought it august 2000, and it still looks like new, and is working as good as ever! I haven't been using it for quite some time, because of the rather poor battery time (and, to be honest, the sound quality was never that great either!), but still...
Cool phone back then!

what a piece of sh*t i had the misfortune of buying this little gem first time round and luckily i bought an extended warranty with the handset and over the next 2 years i had to replaced the handset 6 times over that period . Like clockwork every 4 months a new handset ,my worst mobile phone experience good bye to bad times

I am from Holland. I've a car phone installed in my car. The startac 130 in it only recognises 2 of the 5 telephone providers in Holland. I was made to understand that it is a 900mhz and that is the reason it won't recognise the others.

I could see that Startac 75 is a 1800mhz. Does it means that it's dual and will recognise the rest of the providers.

Thanks in Advance

is it possible to to get custom ringtone download to my startac, like had before with my nokia cellular. I see the startac is better in quality, but does it have that custom ringtone luxuary

A phone before it's time, relatively small and light, and holds a signal well.
However, the menu system is tricky to use, and the weight of the phone is in the "top" half of the phone, so when you use it it feels quite unbalanced.
