Summary: I had a contract with ' three' but my contract phone got damaged badly so needed a replacement . I just happened to see this phone advertised in Tesco for under £20 so I thought give it a go. If you are after a simple phone to make calls and check e-mails and text this is a great phone. Not sure why but I just enjoy using this phone and it in my opinion looks far more expensive than its given price.
Summary: This is easily the best value for money phone I've ever bought. Skype, MSN, Free 3 to 3 calls, it's bloody amazing value for money. Yes it will drive you nuts sometimes with call drop outs (maybe more down to 3 network as this seems to have improved) and occasionally turns off randomly, but for what it costs to run on PAYG - It's all easily over looked.
Summary: I needed a functional phone that would combine simplicity of design and function to use for downloading and video streaming. I had been experiencing clinical depression before purchasing the phone, and, on the day I bought it, had been in bed for 14 hours contemplating my misery. As soon as I purchased the phone, something strange happened. The constant rain lifted, and the sun came out.
Excerpt: "...from £29.99 - £69.99. The ZTE F102 phone is still available but no longer on the 3 Mobile website. It has been replaced by a newer version named ZTE F107. ==ZTE F102== The F102 handset is classed as a budget model. It is a 3G phone meaning it is wirelessly connected to the internet for the use of world wide access, voice calls etc. Despite being so cheap, the handset offers numerous built in options. I will list them here and discuss further ...
3 ZTE F102 - A good price for a good phone. Great value.
24 January 2011
Summary: I bought this phone after losing my uninsured I-Phone and while admittedly it is far from filling the void, it is an effective phone for its price. The majority of internet sites are accessible very quickly (though some do not load due to 'insufficient memory') while videos from sites such as YouTube also load and view very well. The camera is very good and the sound is of high quality for its videos.
Pros: Good value, small and lightweight, easy to navigate, availability of Skype
Cons: Small keypad, can be difficult to text, have to pay for its games
Excerpt: "...only way to go, the ZTE F102’s tiny little screen just isn’t good enough. Annoyingly, there are some advantages. It's almost cheaper than water, at only £20, and has a massive internal memory. 128 MB is over 4 times the amount that my LG has (go read about that review after this!). Best of all, you can use the phone as a mobile internet dongle, allowing you to surf the internet on a laptop using the 3G connection in the phone. It connects quickly ...
Pros: Big internal memory, only £20, can be used as a dongle for your laptop
Cons: Clunky looks, freezes easily, buttons make a noise
Summary: This phone is brilliant. Bluetooth, MP3, Games, Internet and loads more. This phone is awesome at first, but after a couple of months, EVERYTHING GOES WRONG, I am on my 4th one of these phones since the beginning of the year (AND MY LAST), cos of the same reason. The phone turns itself off whenever it bloody well likes. You cant send messages after a while, it will just freeze the whole phone and the screen will go purple. Now half of my contacts have just disappeared.
