I just received this phone and use Bell and Rogers. When I insert both SIM cards and then start the phone up, it loads the "blu" screen, then says searching and then does like a white screen to searching flash sequence. Can anyone tell me why it doesn't seem to want to read both of my SIMs? I have it to dual sim open.
Thanks

This phone is carried by thousands of retailers, maybe not in your country. I bought mine in Mexico and it's a great phone. Love it.

On mine, I set preferred input to 'abc', go into notes and start writing, any time I hit the two shift keys it changes the input selection. Since there's around 20 input selections and language choices you have to cycle all the way around. I just want the shift keys to be shift keys.

Also pretty sure the j2me on this phone is buggy. It's pretty slow and wouldn't see my bluetooth gps module.

Since you seem to know about the inner workings of this phone, any chance you know a solution to a bug with the keyboard input selection? The shift keys changes the input selection instead of being shift keys, which makes the keyboard next to impossible to use.

Ok got the phone today. I bought this as a spare travel phone in place for my Samsung Galaxy S. So this is not my main phone hence handons will be light in details.

It runs some proprietary OS, probably Nucleus RTOS like all the other cheap Chinese phones. Comes with 1100mAh battery, but that may be just false labelling.

Bad bits:
1) doesn't have bluetooth
2) doesn't have camera flash or torch
3) keyboard doesn't work on most java apps, you need to switch to edit mode
4) default browser is crap, defaults to Latin American settings (unchangable)
5) configuration for data and some UI is a tad bad
6) keyboard and trackpad are nothing to write about

Good Bits:
1) does have 3G at 850/2100, see Telstra/3 networks here in Australia
2) dual standby, haven't test for dual active
3) can install other browsers, comes with Opera 4 mini as an app which you can't install, but I've install opera 5 mini and bolt browser.
4) about 80MB storage on phone, java sees 16MB ram heap

Overall I do like it. Bear in mind that I wanted a cheap disposable phone will a large range of connectivity, and that's exactly what I got.

After pondering forever about getting a spare travel phone, I settled for this one, mainly because Telstra network here in Australia is 850.

Just purchased it from digitalsound_buy on ebay, will see how it goes.
