Excerpt: I bought this phone because it was the only touch screen pay-as-you-go option I had. I really dislike this phone. There are some annoying problems: the phone drops more calls than it gets. It doesn't vibrate enough for me to feel it in my pocket. The QWERTY keyboard requires you to have fingernails to use it. The touch screen isn't very accurate. The phone's speaker isn't loud enough. The most annoying feature has to be the lack of a usable lock.
Excerpt: my aunt game me this kind of phone, its actually good in appearance but the service is not satisfying, why? i cannot use the internet . the telecommunication do not know how to set the settings. the quality of the cam during night is not that good. its very disgusting...
Excerpt: Im having a hard time getting this phone hooked up to my computer... Unlocks and calls people on my recent call list, and phone book while in my pocked. I have to delete my recent call list everytime i use it or it will call that person all day... I rely on that instead of going through my phonebook everytime to find the number i want to call. Havent been able to set up email... keep getting error messages. Camera is poor quality and no flash.
Excerpt: Problems with the phone: 1. Does not connect to the computer ie. The device is not recognized even though a USB cable is provided. 2. Does not have 3G 3. Does not have WiFi 4. Music player does not categorize songs on the basis of artist, album etc. 5. Videos do not play full screen 6. Installed applications do not rotate when the phone is slid open. Very inconvenient for opera, web browsers & games. 7.
Excerpt: This phone was bought as I got bored of owning an LG Cookie. I paid around a hundred pounds for it and I honestly don't think was worth the money. I had it for around 6 months or more and the thing that attracted me to buy it was the querty keypad as I am a big texter, I liked that it would enable me to type very quickly.
Excerpt: I finally decided to upgrade my very reliable sony ericsson after years of not having to. I ended up purchasing this phone for £90, based on the fact that, as well as black it came in another cuter colour, white and pink. I also loved that it had a touch screen and a qwerty keyboard. Being able to alternate between the two is something i really like about the phone.
Summary: the phone is ok. The keyboard is good to but at times the buttons can be hard to press. When you lock the phone and put it in your pocket it sometimes unlocks and can call contacts without you knowing. It is good because it doesnt brake after a drop and has a nice design. Overall the phones performance wasnt good. but the design was.
Excerpt: I recently bought this phone from my friend for 30 quid in brand new condition, and yet i still feel that was much too high a price for this awful, awful phone, let alone the £118.99 that its selling for. The phone lock button is indisinguishable from the voice recorder button next to it, and even when locked, it is annoyingly easy for it to unlock itself in your pocket, leading to me opening my phone to find I've phoned about 20 different people.
Summary: I've had this phone since September 2010. At first I thought it was very thick, but I liked it. It worked awesome for like, 9 months, and then I started to have trouble with it. Sometimes, when I got a text message and it vibrated, it wouldn't stop vibrating so I had to turn it off and on again so it would stop. If you don't lock everything it will be a mess by the time you check it again (It would call people, send blank texts, even change some settings).
Pros: Very easy to text
Cons: The screen, the keys, the lag, games, MESSAGE MEMORY.
Excerpt: Basically a decent phone except it turns itself on and I've had it make one call without me realising. It does this when in your pocket or inside a bag. If you were travelling for an extended time the only way to make sure it doesn't activate would be to take the battery out. The "lock" function is also easily disabled when carrying it in your pocket. Both the "on" and "lock" functions need to be on the bottom piece that is only accessible when you slide it open.
