    Pros: Small, foldable, pleasant aesthetics, easily used
    Cons: Aerial can break off, messaging and phonebook poorly implemented, range problems

    Apr 26, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Size, style, reception
    Cons: Antenna, not intuitive, caller ID functions

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Size, excellent audio clarity, accessory compatibilty with other StarTAC products, good battery performance.

    Pros: tons of features, excellent reception, small, light, sleek design
    Cons: hard to find your way through the extensive list of menus

    Summary: You cannot go wrong with this phone! The StarTAC ST7760 is easily one of the finest cell phones on the market and probably the best choice for under $200. I owned a StarTAC ST7760 for two years before I sold it to buy the slightly more advanced (and ... read more
