Disadvantages: Only does standard functions
Well I personally believe that the world has gone absolutely mad with mobile phones. I personally do not want a mobile phone that can sing and dance. If I did I would have purchased a bloody monkey. What is wrong with people. Why do you want to watch television on your mobile phone. Guess what theres one invention thats mastered that art. Its called a television set. Oh no you can even create videos with them. Wait a minute, oh yeah theres also something which has cracked that market, its called a video camcorder. lol. No seriously though. Why on earth do people need or want all talking all dancing mobile phones. Surely all they need is to be able to send and recieve text messages and phone calls.
Well this phone wont score any points for features. It has no polyphonic ringtones however normal ringtones can be purchased and downloaded onto the phone. Yes it does have WAP. No, really it does. You can purchase additional covers in a variety of different colours however if will be hard to find them for this phone now due to the influcation of all these new mobile phones.
The battery will last ten hours on standby and 7 hours when used. This is still quite good for a mobile phone. It is also very easy to use. Contacts can be accsessed through the use of the menu which only contains contacts and messages and settings so it is pretty eays to navigate through. The mobile phone will store 50 contacts and how ever more your sim card can hold. I would advice O2 sim cards as they hold up to 30 contacts. Messages are easily wrote however there is no instant messaging insertation available, however I find them more of a hinderance than a help. The clarity of the phone calls is extremely clear and there is a loudspeaker service available.
In order to adjust the volume simply use the two buttons at the side which can be seen in the picture above. I personally feel that I dont need to explain about the size as it can be seen in the image. The screen is LCD and monocolour.
A very hardy and reliable mobile phone, however do not expect too much from it. I recomend it. m
Summary: Nice phone if you just want to ring people and send messages.
