The One Touch Club + measures 133(h) x 54(w) x 25(d)mm, and tips the scales at 160g. On top is a 18mm whip aerial that extends to 93mm when in use. The Club has a sliding cover that protects the numeric keypad when not in use. However, I don’t really think it has any practical purpose, and would recommend removing it because it isn't worth keeping it on. The Club has a large three-line orange backbit LCD screen; the top line is reserved for icons, while the other two lines can display up to 12 characters each. The Club can access different options via long and short key presses. The package comes with a new type of desk charger, a belt-clip and three AAA batteries for emergency back-up. The Club can send and receive SMS like any other phone and there are numerous call barring options and security features available. A really useful feature is the appointment reminder. The battery performs well. Transmitted speech is clear and free from any digital distortion. Received speech is exceptionally clear and I have yet to have a dropped call, even when I have been in areas of poor signal conditions. All in all, I think the One Touch Club + is an excellent budget phone. So overall, 8/10!
If this is your first mobile phone it is a good choice. It is great value for money and is perfect for a first time mobile phone buyer. There are all the basic features of a mobile phone. There are 15 different ringing melodies to choose from and you will definatley find one to suit your personality. You can also send SMS messages that are growing in popularity. SMS stands for Short Messaging Service. Basically you can send and recieve a short message of 160 characters to anyone else with a mobile phone. The phone also has a built in handsfree kit. During a call u press a single button and you can the callers voice out loud so you don't have to have the phone next to your ear. Also the caller can hear you replying. The other features of the phone are a phonebook, settings for secruity and the phone. The charger for the phone is a desktop stand and is quite good. The only downfall of the charger is the fact that sometimes it takes a while to get the phone in the right position so it starts charging. For those who have had a selection of phones I personally wouldn't bother. The phone is quite bulky and if you have a short patience the long touch/short touch dual keys will irretate you nut after a while you get used to it.
I think this phone is a realy easy and simple to use mobile. It is my first mobile and come with Vodaphone's Origonal package. All i had to do with the phone was to get another sim card on Alcalls and get a Leather case. I also found a flashing areal and it looks pretty cool. I love the chrome like finish on the phone and general styling. I really like the fact that it reads the text messages out when u recieve one. The battery time was adaquite and i thought the phone was reasonably light. The only thing that lets the phone down is the screen size and the fact that it is not Dual Band. The phone is also hard to find accesorys for, as it is not very well known.
This was my first phone, and it was probably just as well because the easyest to operate phone I have ever come across. Although when they first bought them out they had problems with the instruction booklet giving the wrong information on how to set up their pin-code leading to many people locking their phones....some indefinatley, they have since altered the booklets! Although its not really jam-packed with features, it has all the basics; SMS, call diverting, phone book (duh!) call blocking etc and the functions that it does include are generally extremly easy to operate. The phone is a sexy sliver colour but it is quite large, you cant really slip it into your pocket, and if you do fit it in you will certainly get annoyed by it! ("Is that an Alcatel in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?!??) Its perfect if you're a 'phone-in-bag' person! The buttons are quite large and easy operable (great for drunken night out!!) and the backlight is v.bright. There is even a detatchable keypad cover which just adds to the sexyness! (Theres a keylock also). Its the ideal phone if your not used to mobiles or you just want an emergency thing.
This is my first pay as you talk phone and it won't be my last. Ok it looks good, but the slide down front had to be taken off so I could get a case for it. The long touch/short touch dual keys take a little getting used too but in all its a good phone. There are 15 melodies with adjustable ringing volume and you can send SMS messages. My main concern is the charger base as you need to fiddle around with it to get it to connect, the charger dosen't look as if it will last as long as the phone will. I have found that you get a pretty decent time out of the battery, usually I get two days out of my phone without it going onto the charger, although I do not use it heavily.
