Excerpt: Just over the Christmas period, typically, since all shops and services are shutting down, my HTC smart phone broke, and I could no longer access my text messages. Considering that I live with my phone in my hand, and that I pay almost £30 per month for the contract, I decided to get a cheap phone...
Summary: I brought this as a temporary phone and as a backup if my smartphone ever died. The phone is light and small, feeling robust and is not likely to break if you drop it. It does the basics of calling and texting without much fuss.

Excerpt: Changing mobile phone service providers is not difficult but it certainly isn't as easy as it should be, especially if you want to keep your phone and your phone number, which is what I wanted to do.
Excerpt: I bought this phone about 12 months ago now on the day I moved house and my phone decided to stop working! It was a moment of just needing something that functioned rather than anything else, and when taking in to account its purpose and price, it did the job.
Excerpt: A brand new phone is all everybody wants right? Correct, but I guarantee you that if you buy your son or daughter this phone on a 13th birthday or for a family Christmas you are going to be sadly disappointed by the confused and slightly betrayed expressions you receive in return.
Excerpt: I purchased this mobile for around £20 quite a while ago. The principal reasons were I wanted something EASY TO USE! and a standard mobile, a good brand and did not cost too much. And this little 64.5g in weight phone ticked all of those boxes.
Pros: Cheap and extremely easy to use
Cons: No internet access might be too basic for some
