Vodafone VF354 Pay as you go Handset - Black/Grey &hellip by Vodafone

Where to begin? I had an old brick of a phone so anything is better than that. Nevertheless this is brilliant. Can watch videos (download and convert with a free 3gp converter), listen to MP3s (download off computer then go to Media / Music / Update songs or you won't 'see' them), listen to the radio, send texts (love the keyboard). Has a primitive camera (good enough for memories when nothing else is to hand, one click switch on side of phone or can access via menu), doubles as a primitive video recorder (does the trick when want to show someone something simple), can send emails and MMS (multimedia messages i.e. fancy emails, there are templates for them) and access the internet (Opera)… Read more

There's one gotcha with this product - it needs its own power supply. At first sight it looks like a simple adapter so it's easy not to put the right number of cables in and then nothing works.

Oh my! This is a technical manual with final positions only as photos - no how to, no user-friendly info. All I wanted was a book that told me what to do, and this is DEFINITELY NOT it.

Useful if you're taking a biology class, or a Phd in sports science. Bye bye book, it went to the charity shop, and some other sucker can wade through it.

And yes, I read the reviews before buying it, and thought I could handle the technical side - but no, I couldn't. Might as well have been reading the wiring diagram for a car, the amount of sense it made to me. But for certain mindsets I'm sure this works.

Just not mine.
