Top Customer Reviews
Be warned, it is a false economy and is cheap for a reason.
First of all, the touch screen is EXTREMELY slow witted, and also rather insensitive, so standard jobs like texting and working your way through the (illogically laid out) menus soon becomes infuriating, and very, very slow. A typical text message on this taking 2-3 times longer to complete correctly than on my old push button Nokia.
Secondly, the apps take an age to load, by that I mean 5 - 10 minutes +, just for some of the games.
Others often crash the phone or fail to load at all.
Thirdly, yes it has an MP3 player and camera, but no USB port, so if you want to add any songs or transfer your photos over, you need to take out the memory card and put it in a suitable USB stick that will go in your PC.
The mp3 player is very un-user friendly and does not cancel its self if someone rings you, and cannot be canceled by pressing the off/back button. That instead rejects the call and leaves the mp3 player running. You have to work your way back through the menu and switch it off that way which is quite a complex process and you are likely to miss your call if that happens.
It also has a tendency to come on by its self and cannot be silenced except by shutting down the phone.
It also manages to call people by its self, despite have in very effective screen auto-lock.
The menus of the phone are illogically laid out with fairly straight forward things like ringtones and display setting being very difficult to find.
Overall this phone is very frustrating and difficult to use and is not worth the box it comes in. It is surprising Vodafone would launch such a poorly developed and un-thought out phone as this.
This is one economy that you will definitely regret making.
There are so many things wrong with this nasty phone that I could write a review 10 pages long but I can't be bothered. This horrible thing has taken enough out of me. This phone should cost minus 100 pounds and come with a handwritten apology from the design director at vodafone.
Although it is the best in its looks,with spare cases and light weight however I wish it with bigger screen-size ,because to select an option when they appear close together would be more swiftly,HOWEVER I am still using it at ease.I will recomend it for teens and students;because for them its very economic,and if they lost it, there is nothing to worried about.
Whatsoever Today I am ordering two more, one for myself and one for my girl friend.
Despite being locked to Vodafone I am using it with an Asda SIM with no problem. Asda sent a text that automatically updated the settings for WAP and MMS as soon as I switched in on!
I did have one silly problem however and that was trying to work out how to unlock the screen! The instruction book tells you how to lock it but not how to unlock it! You simply need to slide an on screen padlock from closed to open - no doubt obvious to everybody but me!
