Unfortunately when I purchased this phone I did not check the small print and the phone was locked to Orange, don't make the same mistake as I did! It has been a nightmare getting it unlocked and has cost an extra £75 and now I found that there is a fault with the phone. Next time I will read the small print and make sure I get an unlocked phone or one locked to the network that I am on!!!!!!!!! Maybe sellers should put that it is locked to a certain network in the description title to be on the safe side!!!!!!

Puchased the above phone for £129.00 as brand new through Amazon Thought Id have no worries with transaction however when i got the phone (birthday present, first phone for my daughter) it come sealed but once opened can see that it was a badly refurbished phone the new back that was put on it had been screwed in too tight thus cracking the back around the screw points and the actual charging point is off centre subsequently its hard to recharge. it also goes off and shuts down and takes longer as usual to start up. paid £129.00 for a flash looking coaster.
since bought a Samsung galaxy no issues. Amazon Hold YOUR HEAD IN SHAME FOR LETTING SELLERS LIKE THIS TRADE ON YOUR WEBSITE.

I will think twice when using Amazon in future

After a couple of years of deliberation, and ownership of a few Nokias and a Samsung (all of which disappointed in some way or other) I finally decided to give in to colleagues peer pressure and get one of these. Needing it to work with corporate email was a key driver in pushing me away from the likes of Android and having owned Symbian phones, none of them were fully capable of HTML mail as this thing is so the email experience is far far better now.

Don't get me wrong, after coming from quite customizable OS's, the iPhone does feel a bit restricted and over simplified, but some may argue those are it's key strengths too. No bluetooth file transfer, limited options for choosing ringtones / sms tones, no settings for the camera etc etc all made me think twice before placing my order, but considering my alternatives were the likes of Blackberry or Windows Mobile (ugh) I'm glad I went Apple.

Camera wise, so far I'm actually quite impressed. Considering it's "only" 3mp with no flash, it copes quite well in low light with limited noise levels despite the high ISO's used. Video recording on it is excellent at 30fps and you can crop them too afterwards which is brilliant. I have bought a new point and shoot camera anyway as the ones fitted to phones are never going to give the same performance. Sure, they look fine on the screen but view them on a laptop etc and the quality soon shows. However, in emergencies or when you just need to take a quick pic the camera is more than good enough. I think people need to realise that there's more to a camera than megapixels alone. Having owned a Samsung I8910 HD with 8mp, the shots with that were still not as good as my Sony 7mp dedicated camera and in low light due to the tiny sensor it was useless. 3mp on a phone is plenty.

I was given the impression that it was unlocked to all networks. It was unable to work with the vodaphone network. When I asked for the address in order to return it , I was simply ignored . That's not the way to treat customers. Now I am not sure I will buy anything from Amazon cos it's impossible to return the item if it doesn't meet ones expectations.

This is the best phone I have ever had by quite some margin. My last phone was a Nokia N95, which was a nice phone all things considered, the screen broke on it twice though so made do with a cheap and cheerfull replacement until contract ended. Did think of not bothering with a fancy phone but thought would check out the iphone as the stranglehold 02 had on the iphone market had ended. Having tried one out in the Orange shop I was instantly hooked. As a phone for the basics, ie texting and calling goes, no complaints, as good as any I have used. I was a little concerned that the text inputing would be challenging but have found the interface to be very user friendly, the landscape keypad is useful if you have larger fingers. Now where the phone really comes in to it's own, the multi media aspects of the phone. There is so much it can do, internet browsing via the Safari browser, itunes for your music, podcasts etc, checking your hotmail at the touch of a button. Then there are the apps, this is where it leaves all other phones in it's class standing. A few I can say that I have found useful are the Orange Wednesdays app, great for the cinephiles out there, uses your phones GPS tracking to give you the location of your nearest cinemas and what is on at your local picture house. The phone also supports BBC iplayer which is very useful, lots of games to be going on with and media from lots of sources, eg the Guardian online, BBC homepage for news etc.I Could go on all day about the apps, there are so many, and because they are third party apps, they keep coming thick and fast, every developer worth there salt wants to get there wares out there for all to see.Read more ›
