Good Phone But Not On PAYG Vodafone (YUK!!!)
, 8 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Nokia C3 Graphite - 2 MP Camera Bluetooth Mobile Phone on Vodafone PAYG (Electronics)
This is a brilliant phone let down by Nokia/Vodafone PAYG problems (all well known and documented on internet).
BEFORE you buy with Vodafone PAYG realise:-
1) You can NOT get your e-mail from the internet (known bug!). The phone wants to dial up vodafone and guess what - I do not get a network signal in my house. So the very thing I bought the phone for does not work.
2) You will almost certainly have to update your phone software to the latest version as there are known bugs in the older version that came with my phone. Yes you've guessed it - with Vodafone PAYG the phone attempts to get updates from the dial out network services and not internet. Known bug! Tricky if you get no mobile signal in the house. Connect the phone to your laptop I hear you say and do it that way. Guess what! Nokia do not include a data cable which I have had to buy from e-bay at the grand price of £2.50 (including post). COME ON NOKIA...... GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER! CHEAP-SKATES!!!
My advice...... AVOID and look around if you live in a poor signal area!
This is a great looking phone let down by Nokia / Vodafone incompetence and penny pinching. Look at the known documented faults on the net before you consider buying. Then make the choice.
