Cheap, & Mostly Cheerful!
Member Name: MrsELH
Advantages: Cheap, All necessary functions, Attractive.
Disadvantages: Poor quality touch screen. I had problems.
£10.50 a month contract with vodafone for 2 years gained me this phone.
Everything seemed well.. I'm not one for fancy phones and going on the internet and playing games on my phone. But it did all the necessarys and had a good quality camera.
The memory was pretty poor but due to it having bluetooth I was able to regularly upload any photos easily onto my computer so this wasn't a problem.
The main problem I found with this phone is it's touchscreen and sometimes the screen literlly doesn't respond and therefore the keys are also locked so there is no way for me to get into my phone.
I then have to take the phone back off.. which took me a long time to be able to do, and take the battery out in order to start the phone again and usually this mean't the screen would start working again.
Sometimes the phone will also go black or white on the screen and reset itself...
I went into the vodafone phone shop and told them the issue.. presuming they would fix it but turns out once they'd sold the phone the staff really weren't interested in helping at all.
I was told it probably just needed updating. I don't see how that could have caused it, I feel like they were palming me off.
They told me I could go home and update the phone myself which I don't have the facility to do. Or they would do it for me, but I would have to give them my phone for 10days to send away and they wouldn't give me a phone to borrow in the mean time. I was disgusted. They were very unhelpful, and if putting the updates on was really that easy I don't see why they couldn't do it in store.
I never updated the phone and a year later it's still working but does have funny turns.
With respect to the appearance of the phone I found it very attractive for it's price bracket and of the lower costing phones it definately is one of the best. It's not too big and looks more expensive than it is.
Everything on the phone I found very satisfactory apart from the touch screen. I have also found it quite hard wearing as I have dropped it several times, not responsible for the phone playing merry hell as I was already having problems, and the case hasn't cracked.
All the basic settings on the phone are very good. The messages can be viewed both individually or in conversation format which I found really useful. The phone also came with several games.. which I had to delete due to lack of memory but none the less there were a selection of fairly good quality games. The message memory is also not too bad once I deleted all the games which free'd some up.
All in all I would say it is a cheap phone and it's not bad. You get what you pay for. I would recommend it if you have a low budget. Prehaps its vodafone staff which are the problem not the phone.
Summary: Suitable for someone with a modest budget looking for a phone which does the job!
