While preparing for a girls holiday last year in Malia I decided that it would be a really bad idea for me to take my expensive Iphone, for the simple reason I knew it would end up covered in suncream at the bottom of a swimming pool in our hotel. I decided that the best option for me would be to head down to Carphone Warehouse and buy a cheap phone. All I really needed it for was a couple of phonecalls home and the odd text now and again.
This phone last year cost me £3.95 - plus an additional £10.00 credit too. I thought this was a bargain for a mobile phone. As with all phones once you get home you need to fully charge the battery, I left mine on charge overnight and then turned the phone on in the morning.
The first this I noticed when turning the phone on was that for a cheap phone the screen is quite clear. I had a quick look through the manual that the phone came with and off I went...
For what I though was a basic phone there were quite a few other hidden extras in there. On the main menu you can access your phonebook and text messages. Both of these options are pretty basic. I found the messaging a little irritating at first because it always saved my sent messages which resulted in my message box becoming too full very quickly. I eventually found the correct setting to stop my sent messages saving though.
In the settings you can change very few things - I had a little play with changing the background on the phone screen. You can also access your call history on the main menu if needed.
The tools option on the menu is where all the little extra are.. you have an alarm, calendar, memo, calculator, stopwatch, unit converter and world clock. The game on this phone is Sudoku - one of my favourites.
There are a few more things I would like to point out about this phone. It is a great size, especially for ladies on a night out, it doesn't take up too much room in your bag.
I am not going to say that this phone is waterproof, because it is not. However I did drop mine in the swimming pool, twice, and after rescuing it and leaving it in the sun for an hour it still works fine to this day. The battery life on this phone is great too. It seems to last forever!
Summary: Giid cheap buy
