[access-uk] Re: Choosing/switching mobile phone/providers questions

Hi listers,

So what if its an older phone; I'm older too but still working well and
in fine fettle; and so is my N73; not ready for ditching yet!

Cheers,

Mike

Hi Will,

Do you have poor hearing then?  Do you need it much louder?  Personally
I think Talks sounds harsh on the N73, and besides, the N73 is an old
phone anyway <Smile>.

All the best

Steve

hi but the n sevnety three is much much louder guys than the n eighty
two. i love the KNFB reader too but who has got the money to spend on
it, 900 plus pounds? it should be hundred quid and that's that as no one
can afford it. for me when i saw the ne ighty two, the design is great
but the sound is the worst i ahve ever heard on any phone
