I've had this phone for about a week now and I'm very happy with it. I use an iphone 3GS as my primary device (personal calls, internet and email), but for work I needed a cheap phone with bluetooth. I carry out researcher and need a new number every six to twelve months for each research project so an unlocked phone (with bluetooth) was essential.
The key plus points are:
1) Good battery life - lasts about a week with a couple of calls being made each day.
2) Cheap - £40 unlocked
3) Excellent signal strength
4) Bluetooth works well
5) Good call quality
6) Charges off micro-usb (finally an end to multiple chargers is in sight).
7) Build quality is good - nothing special, but well put together.
Ok, so if you want internet access this is not the phone for you. I'm reluctant to call this a con as the phone isn't really designed for internet access. As a cheap simple phone with bluethooth connectivity its fine, but if you want more than the ability to make calls and send texts you'll want to look elsewhere.
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2011NOKIA IS BETTER THAN SE.Very bad phone made by se.it is hang every time.at list 5 time restart... moreAll nokia phones act like spiro (lot of freezing and hanging), but only spiro and yendo - SE phones that acting like Nokia.
NOKIA IS BETTER THAN SE.Very bad phone made by se.it is hang every time.at list 5 time restart it.not support themes.
So having had memory card problems with a new Spiro (and other incidental problems), and updated to the latest software version as recommended - Sony Ericsson have come back and stated that the Spiro doesn't support Class 4 SD cards. Only up to Class 2.
I not sure that I believe that as Class merely indicates what transfer speeds it is capable of.
spiro set is a bad series of sonyericsson,,, it,s music to good but message software very bad and after 2 month of purchesing cell hanged,,, if i do call anyone after that do sms then show out of memory again and again,,, really very bad experience....

U guys r complaining abt this phone but it's u only who r making a wrong decision. Sony ericsson cedar costs just a little more and is million times better than spiro. Cedar doesn't have even a single problem. Awesome phone with awesome features.
