My normal phone is a Nokia Lumia 800 (Windows Phone 7 Smartphone) but this developed a charging problem so is currently with Orange for repair.

As part of the repair deal I get a loan phone which happens to be this Samsung. I am a bit of a tech geek and love having the latest gadgets so I thought I would hate it, no email, no Facebook - nothing really, just calls and text.

How wrong I was! I've completely fallen in love with this simple little device. Using a phone with a keyboard after poking at a touchscreen for so long is a joy, not constantly checking Facebook, Twitter, emails etc is liberating, texting is so much quicker and I am not constantly looking for the charger. I got the phone a week ago and its still got 2 bars of charge left and that's after reasonable use.

The only downside and the reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that it doesn't have Bluetooth and I do a lot of driving so is somewhat essential for me. If it wasn't for that I would happily ditch my Lumia 800 for this phone and go back to basics.

As it is this little phone has opened my eyes to how nice it is to have a basic, simple phone that just works and so I am still ditching the Lumia 800 and have got a Samsung E2600 as this does have Bluetooth but is still nice and simple.

In fact I may still get one as an emergency phone to keep in the car...

Brought this as a spare phone as I had brought a SIM on contract for the other half only to find that she did'nt need it.

This is a very simple phone, and is a huge change from the Galaxy S3 that I normally use. The battery life is not good, its phenomenal! When I got it, the battery was one bar under full charge and it went 3 weeks before it needed a recharge!

For phone calls and texts, this is perfect. Its simple to use and being a Samsung, will be ultra reliable.

This is a dinky wee flip mobile that fits in pocket or handbag. Really basic model without Bluetooth, but it's only as a backup to save my fancy smartphone from sea and sand.
Would be great for abroad as Pay as You Go if you don't want Roaming Charges building up.
Sim-Free and I'm using a spare O2 Sim loaded with £10 Pay as You Go.
Recommended for those that don't want complicated mobiles.

So far - I've only had the 'phone a few weeks - I have nothing negative to say about this 'phone at all. It is exactly what I want in a mobile 'phone. It is small and being of the folding type doesn't dial phantom phone numbers whilst it is in your pocket. The screen and numbers are well lit and the numbers are large which is good for my clumsy fingers. The battery charges quickly and seems to last a long time. The menu is excellent, being both clear and intuitive. No bells and whistles but brilliant for 'phoning and texting - just what I wanted!

My wife and I use Samsung 'sliders' and do not like the new touch-screen phones, so bought this as a standby mobile, and also offer it to overseas' guests with a pay-as-you-go SIM in it. Looks good and simple to operate mobile, with no extras like cameras.

For the price this is a reasonable phone, the build quality is decent as is the sound quality, however it has some problems. The first is that the screen is very small and Samsung do not make best use of the screen size; when you are texting, the active screen area is extremely small as they show an address bar above the text area. Also when texting, the background colour is black and the text white...there is a flashing white cursor that covers the current letter or word making it very difficult to see what you have typed. This is a particular problem when you are trying to insert a word from a list of possible words. The predictive text function keeps turning itself off (after you have added a symbol for example) and you may have to turn it back on several times in one message deleting the wrong letters as you go. Also when texting, the letter selection can give the wrong letter, for example for a single button press, the wxyz button gives a 'w' when in abc mode but gives an 'x' when in predictive text mode. The phone has an circular ok button surrounded by a ring to control the cursor...the slightest touch of the ok button when using the cursor control will send your text before you have finished typing it; trust me you will do this many times. This is probably the worst feature of this phone; as an ok button is normally used to confirm a selection, you instinctively press it to confirm a menu selection...and it sends your text with no confirmation or the chance to stop it.

This is the worse phone for texting I have ever had and after two weeks of ownership I have had to buy a different phone. If you like to send texts this phone will drive you insane.
