Advantages: great music and accessories.
Disadvantages: none for me as yet
I have always liked folding phones as cannot seem get on with these sliding phones and nokia has always been a firm favourite of mine so for me it was a win win situation. Once ordered it arrived the following day by courier.
I was with 3 and did look to go with a different company but in the end I found that 3 was giving the best offer for this phone so decided to stay with them.
My contract is for 18 months and I chose the 300 mix and match which gives me 300 minutes, I then decide how I would like them so I chose to have 250 anytime minutes and 50 texts per month. If you want more in your package you can choose the higher bands but for me the package deal suited my needs.
The price for my deal is £17.62 per month for as long as my contract but if you have insurance then it goes up to £24.46, if you want a higher deal then the price will increase. There are also extra's you could go for if you wish ie: internet max if you would like to access the internet.
My new phone comes in a choice of two colours either black or purple so I decided to go for the purple one as it had a bit more about it and it is a bit more feminine. The back of the phone is a deep purple but the front starts off silver and slowly grows to the purple colour with a beautifull high sheen to it.
When the phone arrived the contents included a black velvet bag to keep the phone in, a charger, headphones with spare ear pieces, usb port adapter, bluetooth adapter.
The phone itself is very stylish and has a gentle gliding open and close mechanism and is a deep purple colour inside, it has a 2.0 megapixel camera with dual flash, music player, fm radio, video calls, loudspeaker, video player, voice dial, wap browser, bluetooth, mp3 and installed memory card
As I open the phone the main page gives you a choice of radio, music player or menu, the first two speek for themselves so I will go to the menu which gives you:
Web: Once in this you can go into settings for browsing the web.
Media: This choice gives you your camera, video, music player, radio, voice recorder, equaliser and stereo widening so you can change whatever you wish to suit your music taste.
Settings: This gives you all the various settings on the phone and internet that you need, just set them to what you require.
Applications: This gives you games, converter, world clock and memory card storage.
Messaging: All your messaging needs for texts and e-mails.
Gallery: This section is for all your stored music files, images, video clips, themes, graphics and ringtones.
Organiser: This has an alarm clock with snooze settings, calendar, to-do-list, notes, calculator, stop watch.
Contacts: Keeps all your names and numbers.
Log: Stores all your numbers called, recieved or missed.
Maps: This is a great little service that means you will never get lost again just type in address and it shows you the way on the map.
EA games: more games for you to access.
When I close the phone again the time appears on the top as though through the phone and then dissapears, if I need to know the time again I just need to tap the phone gently twice and it magically re appears again.
I am very happy with the phone and love the simplicity of it, as with anything new I cannot stop looking at it and going into all the various sections and really enjoy being able to play the games and have the music playing at the same time. As for the music the sound is brilliant and very clear, I have already downloaded some music and set them as my ringtone and message alert, I have also found that the battery lasts quite a long time, I use my phone as an alarm clock so it is on all the time and I find I only need to charge every other day just to keep it topped up.
I would recommend this phone to anyone and hope you love it as much as I do, maybe the package is not for everyone but there are so many to choose from and if you go through a cashback site you could get a nice extra bonus at the same time.
Summary: great phone and very stylish.
