i got this phone using my virgin mobile red discount (an amount accrued from your spending on top ups over max of 2 years).
Anyway im not usually a fan of flip phones but have really enjoyed using this one. although now it is generally outdated by the ever newer fancier models it remains a steady, useable handset. it has an inbuilt camera which can be ready in one button touch. the picture quality is great on the phone for screensavers etc (if a little dark sometimes) but like almost all mobiles with cameras it leaves a bit to be desired for downloading them to your pc. one really annoying thing about this phone is that it beeps at minute intervals once its decided its battery is low which surely doesnt help to conserve it! there isnt much warning between the beeps and switch off but generally the battery life is pretty good. with average use mine lasts about three days before needing a charge. it doesnt have bluetooth or infrared for transferring pics to pc but like i say that probably isnt really worth the effort of loading the software on in the first place!
i have occasionally cut people off due to the ferocity of the flip element! sometimes thats not such a loss.
you can attach different tones to different callers in your phonebook with relative ease and these tones also apply to txts from that person which allows you to decide whether or not to rush to find it. Unfortunately it doesnt allow you to know whether its a call or a txt because of this so be warned some jogging may be unnecessary!
The volume level of ringing tones however can be a little quiet depending on which one you pick.
This is a phone suited to a smaller hand due to its size and buttons. This is the price paid for a nice neat looking small flip phone.
An all round good entry level flip.
Summary: A good all round entry level flip phone
