Summary: This phone is everything it aims to be; simple and cheap. Its functions are basic to say the least, you can call, text and use the phone as an alarm clock but not much more but this phone aimed at those that want a no frills handset. Unlike smart phones, you'll never find yourself lost in a menu somewhere, it's just not possible which is what makes it perfect for mobile phone novices that want their handset to be as simple as possible.
Summary: I love this phone! I wanted a phone which I could send and receive texts on. It didn't need to do anything else and it doesn't! I got the phone when it was on offer for £5 so perfect if you want a cheap phone . I use it as a pay as you go phone and it works brilliantly for this. I would recommend this for people who just send texts occasionally. I probably send 2-3 a day. If you want to send significantly more than this then you may want one a bit higher tech.
Summary: I recently damaged my mobile phone and wanted to pick up a new PAYG (pay as you go) mobile cheaply from Orange. I had been with Tesco mobile, but have had some problems with the service lately so decided it was time for a change. Looking through the Orange site, none of the new phones particularly appealed to me, especially as I already have a decent MP3/MP4 player as well as a good digital camera.
Pros: Cheap, Good Sound Quality, Light, Good Battery
Cons: Very Limited Features, Storage and Quite Old Fashioned
Summary: I bought this phone (Alcantel -E227) 2 months ago & I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. (This is the girlie bit!!!- I not being sexist -I'm a girl & into gadgets/computer etc in a big way, but this phone is SO good looking!!) I saw this on the Carphone Warehouse website & loved the colour- it's even nicer when you get it out of the box -fantastic/very expensive looking, burnish red colour with silver trim - it feels lovely too- like satin and when it rings it has really great lights...
Summary: This was the cheapest phone I could find in Tescos. I think that someone like me, who doesnt really use their phone tant much is the perect target market for this product. It doesn't have many games, it doesn't do WAP or GPS or whatever, it won't even toast a slice of bread. But what it will do is phone and text. For me, that is a masterstroke. In a time when phones are becoming cameras and organisers and thermometers (you just wait...
Summary: I'm a geeky gadget freak. I like my phone to be multifunctional, multimedia, cutting-edge, online and very grown-up; at any given time, my ideal phone is likely to be the Blackberry after next. I am also, however, stony broke (long story). So when my well-worn PDA stumbled to a halt, I was left in the unwelcome - and unfamiliar - position of needing a VERY CHEAP new phone. My sister, a Blackberry owner, came shopping with me for moral support.
Excerpt: Ho utilizzato un Alcatel per un periodo breve della mia vita (per fortuna) avendo il mio cellulare in assistenza, e non avendo altre alternative, andai a scavare come si fa di solito in un vecchio scatolone, ed ecco all' improvviso l' Alcatel e227 cellulare utilizzato da mia madre per non piu di 7 mesi ed abbandaonato da poco. All' inizio mi complimentai con me stesso per la scoperta, in quanto pensai di aver trovato per un po la soluzione dei miei ...
Pros: è molto leggero
Cons: scarsa memoria . batteria con poca autonomia
Excerpt: Alcatel non è certo una marca di primo pelo ma si contraddistingue sempre per le stesse caratteristiche: Design ma bassa affidabilità! In realtà questo telefono non l'ho acquistato direttamente ma poichè si è rotto solo dopo due settimane ho deciso di usarlo io, in pratica doveva servire per sostituire un'altro telefono ma non è durato per niente! Iniziamo da una breve descrizione: Alcatel E227 telefonino modello conchiglia senza fronzoli, caratteristiche ...
Pros: Leggero, compatto e design semplice
Cons: Scarsa resistenza, carcassa, debole mancanza di memoria interna
