i got this phone for my bday in february. i loved it for a few weeks until one day it wouldnt let me access my inbox. I rang vodaphone and they sent me a new one but then a few weeks later the same thing happened again. I am now on my third vk530 but vodaphone have told me that they fixed the problem and at the moment it is still working.
It is a great phone as long as it is working. It is very small and light and very pretty! the camera is quite good quality. A few things that annoy me are that the battery life is not very good, when you are texting in ABC mode and you need two letters that are on the same button you have 2 wait a few seconds before the cursor moves across. Another downside is that it does have bluetooth or infrared or a voice recorder. Other than that it is a good phone and if you are thinking about getting this phone you should because vodaphone say they have fixed all the problems
hi people out der im worried of buying vk 530 cos people say it aint gud so i dont want 2 spent alot money on a phone which aint gud so any 1 out der wanna sel der phone
I have had my VK530 in pink for nearly 4 weeks and absolutely love it. I have had no problems. I was in two minds whether to get the phone because of the negative comments but I am so pleased that I did.
im not so keen on this phone as i bought it of a friend as it was on vodafone thinking that i could changethe settings and unlock the fone. it has cost me twenty pounds to get it unlocked. i onli paid 50 pound for the fone. when will it come out on all networks or will it be on vodafone at all times!!
plp say dat vk 530 u colud find it cheap wers da chepest place you could get it from tazy let me know
its really smLL i rekomend the pink one coz its soooo cute! the red ones arent good !!!!!
I purchased the VK530 about a month ago but have only been using it the last 2/3 weeks as I got it unlocked. At first it would occasionally switch itself off which I could cope with but got annoying, THEN when I tried to delete msgs cos my inbox was full it kept switching off after deleting about 2. NOW it wont even let me open my inbox even tho I hav msgs 2 read and jst switches itself off!! Unfortunately I bought this phone off someone on Ebay so I dont have a receipt etc. Does anyone know if there is still anywhere I could send it to get replaced/fixed and how much that would cost, or could I just go and complain to vodafone! A MSG TO YOU ALL: DONT BE SUCKED IN BY THE PRETTY PINKNESS------DONT BUY THIS FONE!!!!!!!
i am really considering about gettin the vk 530 in pink or red but i quite worried bout all these complaints that people have made but all i really want 2 know is if the camera is good quality if you can send & recieve picture msgs and how many msgs you can store or yeh and also what other features the phone has? if any one could get back 2 me and answer my questions that would be gr8 thanx xx
hey lexy w
the picture quality, i think, is good. i love my vk pink mobile.
you can store 100 messages in the phone and 30 in the sim.
you can send pictures to email addresses, i know this because i have done it before.
hope i was of some help lexy.!!!
I own a VK530,a cute pink one,i bought it because i thought it was cool,i havent had any of the problems some of you are having but i would really love to be able to download ringtones like Crazy Frog and Sweety except i can't unless i buy a cable,not fair really,so what i am tring to say is you should'nt go for looks you should go for practicality as well,has a VK530 user actually downloaded any ringtones yet? Let me know pleaze x

Overall this is a real good fone,its realy girly!
Hi, I really want this phone for my birthday but now as i have read all the reviews I am not really sure, because most of you are saying it's gone faulty then very little of you say buy it. I am so confused! Please help! xxx
If you are thinking about buying this phone just read the following and then decide what you want to do.....
In February i had my phone stolen and decided i had to get another one ASAP,so i saw this cute little pink one and decided to buy it (i actually ended up going for the purple coz personally i think it is a prettier colour). Bought it from the vodafone shop and was as happy as larry walking around with this pretty girly phone.A couple of days after, the screen froze and the colour distorted so i turned it off and on again and it was fine, however after this i had numerous problems such as being unable to access my messages,the camera freezing on the outside LCD and turning itself on and off wenever it liked.I put up with it for a couple of months,but decided enough woz enough and took it back to vodafone to get my money back.However they gave me some crap about how they couldnt give me a refund or an exchange because VK wasnt part of their company (even though vodafone sold it to me and therefore should be responsible).Instead they sent it off to be repaired.The guy in the shop said it would take a week to be repaired however two weeks later they still hadnt let me know so i went to vodafone and asked if they had got it back yet and they had.So they gave it back to me and the phone was fine,none of the problems i had with it before...until the next day!When once again the screens colours completely distorted.So i took it back to vodafone and demanded for my money back or an exchange but once again they gave me the rubbish about not being able to and instead gave me a brand new VK530 phone.That was last week and so far i have had no problems with it, but im not holding my breath!
Anyway sorry that was so long but i think people should know the extent of how aggrivating, time consuming and frustrating these Vk530's are. Yes they do look cute and pretty, but the novelty wears off after about a week especially when your tearing your hair out over the fact you cant access your messages etc!Trust me,this phone is completly unreliable, but then again you need to decide whether you buy a phone for the way it looks or its practicality.After my numerous problems with this phone i think i know whcih one i would go for....
I'm considering getting this phone, but I'm really confused. So many people saying it's great and so many people having problems with it. :|
Just wanted to know a couple of things:
-Can you send pictures to e-mail addresses?
-Is the picture quality reasonable?
-How much message storage is there?
Sorry if these questions have been answered already but I'm confused!!
you wanna buy this phone?let ma make myself clear here.....you wanna buy this phone?pls....dun joke ok?so much of money izit?give me somelah!
it's amazing phone. I like the colours. it look's feminin. I think i gonna buy it. :p
Hi I am from Australia and was in London over Christmas and New years and bought a pink VK530 because it looked cute...mine must of been from one of the faulty batches because it is the worst phone ever! Every second time I write a message it starts deleting letters instead of writing them and it always turns off and somethimes the screen pixelates (I think that is the word??). So to anyone who is thinking of buying one DON'T!!!
