I had one of these StarTacs for a couple of years on Orange, and it had a few problems. The most apparent problem is that the case cracks. This is not just a cosmetic problem, it allows the SIM card to move away from the phone, and the phone stops working. That is not a hideous problem, you can always glue the case back together, and it is obvious when it has happened. The much bigger problem is with static on the SIM card. The design of the phone is such that the SIM card is a full size card and it's edges just poke out of the phone. This allows the card to pick up static and this stops it receiving any calls. There is no obvious sign that this has ... Read the complete review

I have to admit.. I bought this phone a few months ago (on Vodafone PAYT) because I was in love with its looks and how you could open and shut the flap with a flick of the wrist :) I hadn't paid any attention to its features or specifications. On the day I bought it, I clearly remember myself quite excitedly fitting the battery and flipping the cover, then I received quite a shock... after switching on the phone I found myself staring at the menu of a c520, my mind flooded with horrendous flashbacks. Wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone who's had an older Motorola, or anyone who wants to send text messages (you CAN, but personally I ... Read the complete review

This mobile still holds its own when it comes to design. Reading other reviews it would appear that it also has some serious flaws, but I have to say that so far I have not experienced them. I can fit it into my shirt pocket and therefore meets my main requirement for a mobile phone. The battery life is poor but lets be fair its getting on a bit now. Only lasting a couple of days between recharges is sometimes painfull. I would like a phone that you only had to recharge every sunday evening and lasting the whole week with constant use. One day maybe. Having to input the phone number every time to SMS is a pain. ... Read the complete review

I must admit it's a really attractive phone: so small and good design. But it has lots of drawbacks, wich make me recommed you not to buy it. I had one (a present of my dad) and I just changed it by an Alcatel One Touch Max, which is much uglier, but much more functional. The main one drawback for me is the difficulty to use: it is a user-unfriendly device. To make a simple action you have to click on hundreds of buttons... just horrible. Another big problem is the battery. It doesn't last more than two days, even though you don't talk. Finally, I must say that the screen is too small. ... Read the complete review

Aside from its problems this phone is pretty cool, its got an easy to use interface, its small light and has a cool flip. Its problems occur when you try and do things like make lots of calls (the battery life is quite poor) and send messages (you can't send them from your phone book). Then theres the terrible ring tones and the bulging battery. Its featured in loads the Amrican TV shows and I only know one other person other than me who has it which makes me feel special!! Well I still like mine. ... Read the complete review
