They're a pretty phone and look the business, but the reliability is not great, but as you say how well you treat the phone does effect things... Some are fine, but from experience (i retail mobiles) i would say there is about 25% chance of developing one of the faults the other guys have mentioned even if you treat the phone well... Carphone Warehouse is releasing an exclusive LILAC model ready for christmas which looks great, and the warranty is pretty sound so they will repair any problems within 14 days anyway, so not a big drama.
i need to know if this phone is any good!!! i hear people complaining that it sucks real bad, but is cos u need to treat it well? I was thinkin bout getting a motorola razor flip fone, but i dont really like them.. lol! i txt a fair bit.. speshly in the dark- DOES THE KEYPAD GLOW AT ALL?! i want to set msg tones+ring tones to my own MP3 recordings.. IS THIS ABLE TO DO THAT?!! without a fone i'd be lost.. so plzzzzzzzzz seriously tell me if i should get this fone. :( im so sad lol

PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!!!
i have gone through 2 of these phones in less than a few months because they all have problems. the first one, the screen would turn white and it would just freeze until i took the battery out. The second one, the battery didn't last more than 24 hours. Now i'm getting stuck with an old version of some SE because FIDO is sooo cheap. This phone is garbage.
it would also randomly connect to the internet even when the phone was inactive. i had to get the internet removed because i kept getting random charges.
Hey, I just got this phone last night, and i was warned that it has been coming back often because something went wrong, and i was told "maybe ill be lucky". Worry #1.
Then i read reviews and everyone keeps crying about all the bad stuff with it. Worry #2.
I have 15 days to exchange it for something else, but so far i love it except for the Internet thats on the main screen that i keep accidently turning on. (By the way does anyone know how to change that)??
I dont know what i should do. I think the phone looks awesome.. but these reviews scare me. 14 days and counting to exchange.. SHOULD I RETURN IT or SHOULD I KEEP IT?
The phone just turns off by itself for some reason and the virate button doesnt works i just got this phone from ebay by oemkings
I have been using the phone for about 8 months .there are various problem 1.network
2.sound 3.software .it starts functioning without any response. to add a photo to contact click the photo on 72/72 then you can add it to your contact
If you are wondering if this phone is the right one for you or perhaps you just need convincing then I would read the opinions on various phones from different manufacturers.
Take the time to note all the faults highlighted by people who actualy own the phone. Ignore any that admit to never owning the phone. List these faults seperately to comments and operating queries. Compare that with say a Sony Erricson where people general write in trying to find out how to make the phone do a particular function. Having got your list of faults for each phone you can make an informed decision. You decide if you want a nice looking phone(The LG Chocolate)or something else that may be more reliable.
I've had this phone since november 2006.
I have to say at first i liked it and it is a very stylish phone.
But it does have a few faults.
The main one being the battery life.
I for one use my phone all the time.
An after a day i have to charge it every night.
Second is the memory.
It doesn't hold alot on the phone and there is no where for a memory card.
Third is the ringing tone is very quiet.
Even though its on the highest volume.
Fourth is now after the 11months i have had it, it keeps turning it's self of half way through writing a text messages and during phone calls.
Apart from that it is a good looking phone but wouldn't advise anyone to get it if you use it for music, talking / texting alot.
well i've wanted this fone for a while, but after hearing these comments i'm not sure about it! i don't want to keep having to charge it, i want to hav my own message and ring tones, and i dont want a dodgy calling system, i want proper service (not crappy), and want a gd display, and the keypad needs to glow.
i dont kno why but i still really want it.. :P give us your opinion PLEEEEASE. or recomend another phone 4 me. =)
ooh my goosh this cellphone is the best damn thing in this entire world(:
i love it i have it in pink color and it's cool.
Well I've had this phone for about a month now n the only thing I like about the phone is that it's stylish. I have to charge the battery almost everyday.. even with limited usage. The ring tone is low, even when it is on max, also the message alert tone is low. N wats up with u not being able to personalize ur message alert tone. Whats up with that? I have other issues with the phone, but u know one thing I'm happy about is that I didn't purchase this phone.
hi , i have this phone for 1 year .it hasn any problem .i think its good and it has pretty design.it has only one prblem , its memory is low but i think its not bad and im satisfied with it. the best advantage of this phone is ; having two battery.when your phone hasnt charge,you can chang battery .
ive had this phone since feb 06.
- battery life is very short (need to charge every day or 2 days, depending how often i use it, which isn't often at all)
- ring volume is very soft
- message alert tone is even softer, even on max
- you can't add numbers to existing contacts (it replaces over the number already in there)
- the sms functions/buttons aren't that good
- can't add your own message alert tones
- but there is one good thing about it (it looks great)
