5.0 out of 5 stars marvel on a budget 13 Oct. 2010
* Physical

The mobile has a very pleasurable sliding keyboard that inspires confidence in the owner. The screen dominates the mobile either open or closed. When the screen is operating its colourful and bright. Although many of the background screens are often piano black in colour, that does however improve readability.

The keyboard is designed as sliding stainless steel screen and backlit, making texting in both bright lighting or dim easier to use. It looks as if it has been laser - etched, so the chances of the letters rubbing-off is much reduced.

It is supplied with quality headphones that are easy to wear in your ears. Also it also is supplied with a 2 Gig card.


Another feature is the raised capacity of the maximum number of messages that can be stored. I had around 470 and above counting!

A useful feature of this mobile is it can sort texts by multiple exchanges between senders and receivers, as well as time and date. This flow of texting between customers is termed as `conversations'. This means making sense of the exchanges much easier to follow.

It can cope with many types of data when sending and receiving MMS, but if you use this with a `pay-and-go, then the maximum size and lengths of media may be limited by your mobile provider.


The way contacts can be arranged is maximised usefulness. You can sort by surname etc. and add a load of other address information. Usefully for monitoring usage is a log of calls; missed calls, received calls, dialled numbers etc. If you are worried about the apparent high number of dialled calls, consider your usage of pay-and-go!

This is as other mobiles!

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy It! 14 April 2011
I hate to break ranks with the other reviewers but this really is the single most annoying phone that I have ever owned!

Ok, so it does what a mobile ought to do: you can make calls, send texts, take photos and access the web. But, to be honest, that's pretty much the minimum I expect these days.

What drives me to absolute distraction is a basic design fault: the radio on-off switch and the camera shutter switch are both located on the main body of the phone and are NOT de-activated when you lock the keypad. This means that whenever you pick the phone up you either turn on the radio or take a photo of your hand.

It gets worse. The radio switch is right on the front of the slider and is so sensitive that it's impossible to keep the phone in your trouser pocket because any movement you make - standing up, sitting down, getting into the car, getting out of the car or simply walking down the street - will trigger a startling blast of radio static from your trouser leg until you fish the damn thing out, cursing the day you bought it, and turn it off again............taking another photo of your hand as you do so! I can't tell you how annoying this can become!

I only got this a couple of months ago but I've already had enough, so I'm off to Phones 4 You to get a replacement. You'll find my Nokia X3 on eBay but for goodness sake, don't buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A dream phone 15 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase
I am not one for phones, so long as I can do the odd text or the odd important(eg kids schools) phone call I'm happy never to really use one. I do however use one as my morning alarm, so when my old one started not working after 2 or 3 years faithful service I decided now was the time to get a new one. I spent hours searching, wanting only really the basics, good quality too but without it being a mini computer. This phone is absolutely PERFECT! it is easy to navigate, download, set alarms etc and has a very good camera + a few extras for the gadget geeks out there. I am also lucky that I got it on the 12 days Christmas sale but you know, even if I hadn't and I had to pay the full price, I would not have been disappointed it would have been worth it. If your going to use the OVI though then download it, works better than the disk. The sound for music either radio or your own is crystal clear headphones are not needed and the ones supplied are very good, more base sounds though on them than on my usual headphones.
