Had this phone a week now. A little confusing to start with as these are a little unconventional to use, but i love this little thing now i've got used to it, works great. Have downloaded a couple of APPs which work fine and installed perfectly. Had to upgrade at vodafone as a lot of the web based stuff costs money, and off your pay as you go it will eat your balance, But an upgrade to £10.00 a month has sorted that. Paid £99.00 i know that was on the expensive side usually £75.00 But for this the vodafone stuff had been removed & some Android stuff put on to replace it & it has been fully rooted (not that i have a clue what that is) but every one seems to be talking about them being rooted. Great affordable & great fun. battery life might suffer if you wanna game for hours, but seeings i'm at work most of the time i don't have time for a lot of that, e-mails from home directly, amazing. But remember youv'e not paid £400 for an iphone so dont expect one. But a great entry level smartphone to get togrips with as a starter.
I got the phone today, and I totally love it! It's perfect if you cant afford the iPhone, its pretty much the same idea. It's a brilliant phone! :)

Worked fine on my Vodafone 858/Huawei 8160
Excellent phone that fits in shirt pocket and looks expensive. Great features but battery life is not great. Unfortunately because it is so neat, keyboard is a bit small but after a few hours using it it it is not a problem. Superb value Android
I've had this phone for a few days and for it's price,it's a good phone. It comes preloaded with Android 2.2.1 froyo and it is kinda slow for processor speed. I tried angry birds and I got probably 7 fps. Also, I'm looking to root it so can anyone give me advice?
How do I unlock this phone, cos I'm currently having problems using it bcos it is prompting me for an unlock code.
Got it from Vodafone Romania, for EUR 99. Nice little phone, but full of Vodafone crap. I rooted it and then replaced the stock ROM with a vanilla one - it's much better now.
It has problems running games & live wallpapers, but this is because its specs are low. Otherwise it's fast.
In Romania the price is 9 Euro with 2 years contract by vodafone , the price without contract is 99 Euro.

It's working well. You will not get technical support from 3 so you're on your own there. Switching off syncing has improved the battery life greatly.
