eventual disappointment

I have had this phone now for a little over a year, I have had Motorola and Nokia cell phones in the past and after the bad taste the sucky Nokia's put in my mouth I was elated to find Panasonic made cell phones! for the 1st 6 months it worked well enough, although I find the voice recognition doesn't work 99% of the time, after that it went rapidly downhill. I don't use my cell a ton, maybe 150 minutes a month, if that and I only charge it after it tells me it needs it, even though with a lithium ion battery memory should not be an issue but after the 6th month this thing will not let me get in more than 10 minutes of talk time and about 10 or 12 hours of standy, a far cry from the claims by Panasonic, whom I still wholeheartdely endorse for all their OTHER products. At this point the battery is bad and now the screen is starting to not work all the time, and the earpiece has intermittent sound, I never thought anything could be as bad as a Nokia 5160 or 6160 but this has fallen into the same category.

if you are a person who uses a cell phone alot and gets new ones every year this phone although at the end of it's lifecycle would be adequate BUT if you prefer to keep your phones for a while I do not recommend this one.

I love my little phone but after only using it for one year my battery life is very poor. Great phone if the battery was better.

OK, but some faults

Both my wife and I have had this phone for almost a year now. While I like its size and light weight, there are some serious problems that detract from my overall use.

1. The speaker isn't all that good. I find that it is often difficult to hear the other person when making a call. This is especially a problem when there is ANY background noise.

2. Voice Commands. The claim is that you can use voice commands to make calls. It just never works!!! So irritating. It's only luck when a voice generated call actually works.

3. Battery. It needs a more powerful, longlasting battery. My wife is going crazy because the phone just won't hold a charge for any length of time after one year of use.

4. Accessing the telephone list is cumbersome - you have to go through all sorts of menus and use different buttons. It can be very frustrating.

There are lots of great phones out there. I wouldn't recommend this one.

Just what I wanted

I had a Nokia, that was always dropping calls in certain areas and never worked in concrete buildings. Well, the sales clerk at AT&T recommended the Panasonic TX 310 and she was absolutely right. I immediately went to our local indoor pool which is notorious for not allowing cell phone calls in or out and I didn't have a problem at all, it called out and received calls. Leaving the digital area and heading out into the analog region where I live, it also doesn't drop those calls either. I think this phone is wonderful.
