im on my second vk530 now and i've got my fingers crossed its gonna b ok. there has been a faulty batch which has gone out to ppl as they didnt know which one were faulty and which ones werent. my last vk used to switch itself off constantly and i couldnt get into my inbox as the error message kept coming up. well, i got my new one, its not done ne of those things so far and i hope it doesnt as it really is the cutest fone! however so far, wots buggin me with this fone is that the external screen, the colours are very and faded and the pics i take are sometimes stretched even though ive adjusted the size. other than that, its fine, if it doesnt switch off and allows me to get the inbox im gonna stick with it
I dont see wat all these complaints are for!! I really want this fone in pink, and Im hoping I get one in my birthday in july, but is it really all that bad????
Hi,what a nitemare this mobile has been! I started with the VK207 model which kept scrollin through the menus by itself. Vodafone gave me another one and I had the same problems, so that got sent off for the so-called 'software upgrade' that someone else mentioned! After further probs I was given the VK530 model, which I have finally activated for media messaging! I am abl to receive them but for some reason am sendin blank media messages! Can anyone let me know which options to go into to make sure the pics are attached?! Thanks!xxx
Okay girlies... i bought this mobile in the lilac... although i absolutely loved the pink.
Anyway this mobile is not worth it at all!! I tell you what, i've had the phone literally 2 & a half weeks, and its already broke.. The screen went absolutely dark, and messages were fuzzy, so u couldn't even see what profile u were going into.
When i went to pick up my phone yesterday... it was still in repairs.. and coincidently another customer was picking up the same mobile from repairs too (only hers was pink, and it was her 3rd replacement in a period of 4 months).
It is a very unreliable mobile, and i would not recommend it to anyone. Not only does it brake on you, but the battery don't even last a day. I've also had problems with my friends being able 2 get through to me on it. So my advise to anyone who is thinking of buying this phone is, "Although it looks good, it does not at all fulfil the purposes that a mobile phone is supposed to. Don't bother wasting your money!!"
I can't believe the amount of complaints there is about the VK530!!! I bought mine at Christmas and it has never really worked properly! I just accepted that it needed switched off and on numerous times a day. But the last straw was when I couldn't open and read my text messages. When I go to open my inbox the phone switches itself off! Very frustrating! Can't believe I am looking to buy a new phone after only 2 months. Major waste of money! DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!
I really really want a lilac one but reading all of these reviews has really put me off. I'm not sure what phone I want now. Is this phone really that bad? I might get a samsung E600. Does anyone know much about that?
i was goin to get the lilac one today on contract, but as i hav been hearing so many complaints etc i hav told my dad not to get it from the shop today and wait till we properlly discuss it tonite, ive been waiting since christmas for a new phone and i cant find the right one and the ones i like are discontinued so i thort great this one is perfect but now i obviouslly not so sure, but ive been waiting for so long so all i really want is a phone, but i mean since ive been waiting a while i would like a good quality one
terrible phone. cant open masgs and switches itself off. battery awful. DONT BUY IT. its not worth it..
This phone was terrible. i couldnd open pic masgs or sometimes even my normal ones. it was small cute and light but battery never lasted more than a day. very unhappy with this phone. 3/10
I bought this at christmas and i had to take all 3 replacements back i reli wnated a ppink phone but it switched itslef off u cundt read msgs and the battery was rubbish!
im v girly + want a punk fone cud u gals pls advise me ...
is it worthit?
bein female us girlz dont wan2 buy crap!!!
i havent had any problems so far with this phone (touch wood)
but what i can say is that it a nice pretty phone but very SIMPLE, doesnt have many features but its not bad.
my brother bought a phone for £109.00 and he has been ripping into me cos i paid£129.00 for mine and he gets a lot more for his money, like video rec and dowloads anything. SO ok he gets more for his money but what i say is that thE VK530 is nice and feminine and worth the money.
I ONLY NEED A PHONE FOR A TEXTING AND A QUICK CALL, NOT A PLAY GAME SO ITS IDEAL FOR ME, BUT IF U WANT A GADGET TO SHOW OFF TO YOUR MATES WITH THIS WOULDNT BE THE PHONE FOR YOU

I got a lilac VK530 a few weeks ago, and I too have been having these problems.
The battery runs down VERY fast, especially if you are texting and using the camera.
The handset does turn itself off for no apparently reason, and no, you cant see who a text is from until you go out into the inbox and have a look.
Sometimes the colours all go funny, and the only way to sort this out is to turn the fone off and on again. At other times the text inbox/sentmessages/drafts cant be accessed, "ERROR" is displayed. This, too, requires you to turn the fone off and on again to fix.
Overall I am not impressed. Very cute fone, small and light too, and a few nice little features, but they seem to have quite a few problems with them.
I wish I hadn't bought this fone.
I got my vk30 for last christmas and it had been great but at the moment im getting trouble with the address book wen i write a message and i wont to send it i have to go through all off mu contacts which is about 400 i dont no if its my phone or is it the phone it self other than that i love it sssoooo much
Hi i got a pink vk530 on valentines day and so far it had been nothing but great! i love everything about it...there was a batch of faulty phones so you probably got those...i have no complaints with my phone whatsoever i LOVE it!!!
PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS FONE!
I bought this fone, cos it was pink and cute, but seriousley, it is not worth it for all the trouble its worth! Screen switchs off, screensaver turns into a fuzz if you dare to switch the fone off, battery lasts 10-12 hours, if that, and when I try to get into the inbox the whole fone switchs off again!!!!!!
You cannot go onto next letter when texting, you do not know who your text is from unless you go back and check, and pictures that I took on the camera part and saved, disapeer and then come back again days later!
I stuck with this all for a while as the fone was so cute and pink!!! But it just got silly. Taking it through VK helpline was a joke, the operators do not speak english, as it is an Asian company and do not even seem to know how to spell "Mobile", let alone fix one. The company does not even have a website!!!
Vodafone shop was stupidly unhelpful too, saying they cannot replace it or give refund, but only send it off for repair which takes a month, even though it was faulty when I got it!!!!!!!! They have given me a terrible tempory fone and they are rude when I call and ask for an update on the repair. This is apparently due to a "Backlog" -(Not my problem though!)
The point is though that a "BRAND NEW" fone should not be in repair! It should work perfectly from the day you buy it. GRRRR! PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS FONE PEOPLE!!!! xxxx
i got the lilac one a few weeks ago but sometimes it turns itself off, and when i read my messages sometimes it comes up with 'error'! so i have to turn it off and back on again!
