Can this phone be used to call the US from overseas?
5 August 2012
Summary: Just purchased this phone to use while traveling overseas. I'm not sure if I understand how or if it will work. I was told to purchase this phone and then buy a pre-paid SIM card when I arrive in England. Just read a review on here that said the phone cannot be used to call the US. Anyone know if that is true?
Summary: If you are looking for a phone with features similar to the old brick built phones, with the added difference of a colour interface then look no further. in the age of the smart phone you would expect more than such primitive features. Its reliability and battery life are very good. Its flow of use is also very good. Only having one ring tone is tedious and so is its more than keen nature of key lock activation when texting.
Summary: Forget all the whistles and bells of smartphones. All you'll do with this phone is make and receive calls, but that's all I need it for!! It doesn't even have a camera. Probably a perfect phone to take away on holiday to keep in contact with relatives at home.
Summary: This is good as a backup phone or spare because its main feature is texting and calling. There is very limited memory for texts and contacts so bear this in mind - if you have a very busy social life, this phone is not for you. There is one game, a few basic utilities (calculator/unit converter/etc.) and a daily alarm function. These should meet your essential needs.
Summary: 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 which I could use with my contract SIM to still get the advantage of my unlimited texts and calls until I could get my phone fixed.
