If it's free with three then go for it

  • Excerpt: "I got this phone free when I signed up on a pay-as-you-go deal with 'three'. The phone has some good features if you're looking for a basic mobile phone. The camera works well but I was disappointed by the lack of java games available for this model when I purchased it. If you're not into gaming then this probably wouldn't bother you. The menu system works reasonably well once you get used to it and the shortcuts that you can set are an advantage. I've ...
  • Pros: Cheap, Good Value
  • Cons: Not as good as a nokia

23 November 2004
  • Excerpt: "Right, so im assuming your reading this because you want to know about the con that this phone inludes with it. This is what the catalogues fail to explain to customers about this, and any other 3 phone that they are selling dirt cheap. The reason why these phones have dropped a massive amount of money is because theres a hidden monthly charge, which customers only find out about once they activiate there phone with the simcard. So heres the con, ...
  • Pros: great video, picture qaulity and cheap
  • Cons: 15 quid a month, whats goign on here then !  ! ?

  • Excerpt: "...introduced me to the NEC e616 knew i just had to have one.The days it took to arrive felt more like years ,as i eagerly awaited the phone. The Phone The phone itself looks great , silver in colour with a small screen on the front showing the time and date. The only down point to its appearance is the size. The phone is like a suit case. Definately not one for the ladies, especially with the size of their handbags nowadays. On opening it you ...
