During 23 years of owning mobile technology there have been just two handsets that have failed to live up to the claims, this is one of them.
The unit crashes with regularity, draws in moisture to obstruct external display, and somehow connects itself to the web on odd occasions.
However I do love the cheap & basic design!
paid £90 for this at the start of last year. Finally replaced it and if it wasn't for the hollow attempt to justify the price tag I woulda threw it away much earlier.
Main problem was the frequency with which this phone would crash on me. I had about a month where it didn't crash at all but apart from that it would go at least twice every week, even on successive days :(
over the piece two of the keys went dodgy with me needing to squeeze like i was trying to gouge an eye to get the thing to switch on or off. (might i point out my previous phone was an old 'green screen' sony with a BT Cellnet sim that i had for 3/4 yrs! and i never managed to break that)
Reluctant to fork out £20 for a bit of wire I went for the cheaper option of a Bluetooth Dongle (which, due to mislabelling in Tesco I was given for no cost :) ) but this phone's Bluetooth functionality limited my file transfer between phone and pc to...zero.
Half the time i couldn't even understand what people on the other end of calls were saing to me the sound was so bad.
Camera was okish but the display made it seem bad.
It looked cool tho (woo)
If this cost £30 quid I'd be content, £20 and I'd be happy.
this is a rebadged benq .
it is one 02 badged mobile to avoid .
I would like to say i recieved this fone last xmas (2005) and it has been fine. I have had only 1 slight problem with it. That is that de "ok" button wont work and i really have to push it hard. The fone its all looks and doesnt have a very good camara or added features.
This phone is pants. I received it late last year and it's been a right pain in the ass. The battery life is low, the bluetooth conectivity is pants and the overall phone is a waste of time.
Like others I got this phone thinking it would be nice, but it's been back to be repeaired twice, first for charging for a DAy and dying, then it wouldn't allow me to send/recieve texts (a common problem with these it seems), and the battery life is a whopping three days max. I followed the instructions for proper charging, but it went from lasting a week to not even half. While my dad's nokia and my brother's motorola last for a week and a half!
If you get one that works, they're alright phones, but I'm looking at another one after this, I've already lost some important pictures after my phone was "fixed". My last two phones lasted many years with no problems, this one had screwed up twice in 8 months!

I have had nothing but problems with it and I am now on the third brand new handset which I picked up from the Kettering branch just over a week ago, i now cannot send or receive texts. Since receiving phone, o2 repair centre have had it longer than I have. Is it possible to have a totally diffeerent model sent to me as i have lost faith in this one.
