Telstra 165i


Nicknamed the Country Phone, Telstra's T165i is the second edition of the telco's handset targeted specifically at consumers in rural areas of Austral...

Rugged design, HSDPA 7.2, Blue Tick rated, excellent call quality, A-GPS

Design won't appeal to all, clicking sound when pressing keys, Bluetooth only 1.2

The latest Country Phone won't appeal to all, but it was never intended to. The rugged design and Blue Tick rating will ensure it finds its way into plenty of pockets.

When Telstra told ZTE in China to make them a new phone for their new next G network they most of also told them to make the phones as cheap as possible! These phones are dubbed ‘bricks' as that is what they are, if you drop them they won't stay solid...

Great for rural coverage

Plastic cheap and very, very nasty

Loud, Sorry VERY loud ring volume, Easy to navigate menu, separate buttons, large screen.

The Clip it comes with... Plastic
