Lily, 23 Nov 2009How did you the usb cable/ I got mine from o2 and all I got were the charger and the earphones!Hi Lily.
The reason is because I bought mine from the Orange shop and in their package they includes the metre long USB cable and some USB earphones :)
The price is the same as the carphonewarehouse options aswell :)
Although you have no choice of colours, silver only.

Amy, 14 Nov 2009Can you trade in broken phones or do they have to be in good condition?Hi Amy
look at my comments on broken phones
Hi there everyone, Lily here,
Thanks for all your great questions, so here are some answers.
First of all there are some great websites that you can sell your mobile phone. Most of these websites will take broken and working mobile phones so here is a list of a some of them.
8. (COMPARISON WEBSITE) www.mobilephonerecycling.co.uk
Lastly the Cerphone Warehouse does not accept broken mobile phones as a trade in, only working phones.
I hope this helps everyone. Lily
J, 18 Nov 2009Yes, I bought mine from Orange and a USB cable and earphones were included :)How did you the usb cable/ I got mine from o2 and all I got were the charger and the earphones!

Anonymous, 21 Nov 2009was it tricky to text and drag??yes more than u can imagine and the texting its complicated !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I agree with all favourable comments here, this is an amazing feat of technology for such a low price. However - and this applies to the Vodafone version, the VF541 - unless you have the fingers of an eight year old child you'll find texting very difficult! The text size is not big, either. I'm surprised at this because on most alcatel phones, even the really cheap ones, you can zoom the text size. Also the Vodafone version does not have the rotating screen and its basic wap access is rather slow. But signal-wise, speed of sending a text, camera, etc. its an interesting item.
J, 18 Nov 2009Yes you can. I've just been playing music on it whilst writing a text and viewing pictures :)thank you v much :D
i have some questions...
i want to purchase this phone for my bestie. we live in georgia. does anyone here have this phone? how good is the coverage? also, she's not really technical savvy, but she loves the mint green cover. any help would be appreciate it.
Anonymous, 19 Nov 2009my last name didnt have the abbility to put apps on it those this have if it does i`ll buy itThis phone has the ability to download and install most java applications/games available.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Yes, this phone plays video fullscreen.
It supports .3gp video formats only.
And it uses a mini USB headset, with no 3.5mm adapter, so you can only use the supplied headset.
Hey does this phone play videos - full screen?
And what video formats does it play?
hello, thanks for getting back to me about the facebook access on the phone :) x
