Advantages: Ease of use. Battery life.
Disadvantages: Cramsps your style!
After breaking/losing a handful of phones I decided that my safest bet was to buy a cheap phone just to get me by, after all, my phones always had a load of features, none of which I ever used.
For under a tenner I was expecting a brick, something that would pull my jeans down if I put it in my pocket - I was wrong. This phone is slim and lightweight, no it doesn't look particulary trendy but it does everything I need it to, text and talk.
The ringtones sound very 1980's, polyphonic is so last season but at least I can hear it over all the other common tones on the tube! The best being the cockerall and frog!
Texting is a doddle, predictive text makes it even easier. There is the usual phone book, you can't assign ring tones but hey-ho.
Useful extras include a torch, speaking clock and there are even some games! There is no bluetooth, camera or MMS so you can't have any pictures on there of loved ones.
Battery life is amazing as there are no useless applications to drain it.
Overall this phone is very basic, easy to use and comes highly recommended.
Summary: Great basic phone, you pay little, you get little.
