I bought this phone yesterday and charged it till the next day which is today. It is unlocked so i was told it can take any simcard. My sim aint working in it does anyone kknow why this is?
sad face, 10 Nov 2010this is not a smartphone :( :(what d'u mean not a smartphone? is it not a (real) java multitasking capable phone? (the 'real' means u can run more than one java apps, e.g listening music from player with opera runs or browsing with it n at the same time u chat via nimbuzz)
push the menu button while u runs an app, does it give u options to run another? thx b4.
Tanya, 06 Nov 2010Feeling stupid - how do I open it to put in the battery and sim card? The instructions start ... morethats what i thought too!!! you have to try hard to get it out - its stubborn but pull the back off. it wont break. have fun!
This is an amazing phone. I bought it three weeks ago from Dick Smith for $59 (i just missed out: you could buy it at Harvey Norman for $59 and get $150 free credit. Before i got it, i read all the reviews on here, and became convinced. i was not wrong, this phone fits all my specifications, all though no wifi.
Very easy to use, all though the keypad is small and may need small fingers, the space bar is a little stiff. apart from that, everything works fine, it has a number of ringtones installed that are cool.
i do have a question though: how do you change the shortcuts? i know that you can do it for the select button but how about the buttons next the the answer button?
Get it, it works, is a very good price, long battery life if charged over night, and is amazing! get it!!
i am considering getting this phone but was wondering if it is wifi capable

PLEASE HELP...does anyone know how to change the incoming message alert tone from the 12 optional tones choices in customize tones to your own imported downloaded tone I have on file. I've tried everything yet still cannot message tone to my own like I could on other mobile phones.
This phone is very well placed in the market place. At $59.00 AUD Pre Paid, theres no way you can go wrong. Ive had mine for 3 weeks now and its very easy to use ( beats touch phones hands down ) and its the lowest priced QWERTY phone on the market. Its only fall back and i really hate this is its only a 2G Handset. But, if your using it for a quick email or facebook its great. Go grab one, i did !
IVI, 16 Oct 2010Even BETTER value at this weeks price $59.00 (eg, at Big W & Dick Smith's Electronics). ... moreI think this phone is only 2G though? I've got an older Huawei with 3G and its great for internet/email except the screen is a bit small and no qwerty. If this phone is indeed only 2G, that isn't enough for me...
Huawei G6600 is the best for low end price,i very2 happy.buy now,,,,,,,,

At DSE, they've (twice, at different SA stores) offered to extend the warranty for a 2nd year, for $9.95 - at ONE of them, they threw-in a 4 GB microSD memory card FREE.
Initially hard to get the back off one of the phones (cf the You-Tube video if you don't work it out how in a short time), we consider it a cheap, albeit, small screen multimedia player & eBook reader. :-)
(We've yet to try all the formats & see how video & eBooks look.)
Great phone for the price $79 AUD, good mp4 videos great quality screen and sound, fast operating, great battery life. Only thing I dont like is you cannot choose your own incoming txt message tone.

Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010I just got the huawei G6600 passport last night. But i don't know how to put music on the phon... moreplug ur phone using a regular mini usb cable no need for windows driver. this unit is plug and play. and then on ur g6600 phone, choose mass storage. Then open ur g6600 mass storage folder and choose music. you can then put your music files there.
