Cat B25 - User Reviews

  • Flash light

  • I enquired from the shop where I bought it, about the trouble am having with memory cards (SD cards) that are not working and I was advised to use a brand new card. But this is ridiculous because i have been using old SD cards in new phones and I have never experienced this problem. In a nutshell the cat B25 phone has proved to be useless. So prospective buyers think twice, don't say you were not warned.

  • I bought the B25 on 13 November 2018. It has horrible ring tones as a result I inserted a memory card with songs so that I can use a song as a ring tone. This works only for one or two calls, the next call the horrible tone from the device sounds. When I go to file manager and check the songs it says no files. What could be the problem? I have tried changing SD cards the phone still behaves the same. Am using SanDisk SD cards. Am slowly but surely starting to hate the phone. Please assist.

  • So it's not umts or hspa or hsdpa?

  • No, it's a gsm not a smartphone.

  • Can I i ncrease text size on phone for my husband? He is new to this phone and finds text very small.

  • Plz send me or guide me about software of b25

  • My b25 is not working plz send me his software or link .

  • Many years ago I was looking for a phone to use during watersports, cause I´m a heavy wind sailor and wassersports teacher. The criterias were: - water resistant (I mean really, not in a glass of water for 20 seconds) - sturdy, beacause it gets hot and cold - must work in water. I had Sony Xperias, but they are not that sturdy. If I accidentally step on it with my 95 kg, it breaks into million pieces. So, I turned to CAT. I watched youtube vids testing different CAT models. The smartphones unfortunately dont work in water. If the screen is wet, no chance to call, cause the screen is unresponsive. So, I decided to buy a stupid phone with physical buttons. So, I picked this model. Pros: Really water resistant. So sturdy, that I could use it as a hammer. No problem if I drive over it with my car neither. Rubber covered, not slippery. Long battery life. Dual SIM. Cons: extremely low quality inside. Even some very old phones from the 1990´s beat it. Camera, display, menu design etc. are low end. The phone is very basic, but still does the job perfectly. I only miss the GPS function. The perfect choice if someone is looking for a reliable, survival phone or just simply as a 2nd phone. And one more thing: a "normal" SIM is the mini. One smaller is the micro and the smallest is the nano. This phone has 2 x normal/mini slots.

  • This phone can store up to 500 contacts on phone memory. This phone doesn't have 3.5 mm jack. It uses microUSB as earphone jack.

  • Normal size sim

  • Hello, I need an opinion about syncing the contacts with another phone. Has any feature about this? At least can i add in a system folder.vcf files and show them in contact list? Best regards, Alex

  • Great phone! Many people complain about the annoying sms tone sounds available, which it true, all of them are really bad, and you don't have an explicit option to silence sms notifications. But there's a "partial solution" for that by choosing the option "Ring type: beep once" on the profile sound menu. The bad thing: your call tone sound will be a beep too. You can also select the option "Alert type: "Vib. and ring" or "Vib. then ring" and "Ring type: beep once", so your Cat B25 will vibrate twice and beep once. Hudson Css

  • Dear Hannah, I "solved" this issue (annoying sms tone sound) by choosing the option "Ring type: beep once" on the profile sound menu. The bad thing: your call tone sound will be a beep too. But, selecting the option "Alert type: "Vib. and ring" or "Vib. then ring", your Cat B25 will vibrate twice and beep once.

  • I've bought this phone, because I'm a sailing / windsurf trainer and needed a really durable and waterresistant phone with no touch screen to be able to use it in water. I don't mind the camera which is close to 0 in quality or the screen resolution, as I have smartphone and tablet. This is the perfect one, no problem if step on it with my 100kg, leave it in water for a long time, no worries. I'm actually very satisfied with it and most likely my next smartphone will be an S60.

  • After one year of having this phone, Unfortunately, there is no beep once or silent option for message ringing and the phone doesn't have silent mode, -no ring and no vibration-. but the shape is still very attractive to me.
