  • Unfortunately though this particular model is only a dual band(meaning that you can only use it in Italy, and Europe), sure it's not 'useless' per se` but it does leave you with limited roaming possibilities
  • It is far too plain, and in my opinion does not offer much innovation, it is just your standard brick like shape without any attempt t give it a more interesting line
  • I would only recommend this phone as a back-up to your everyday phone
  • If though you want a really cool phone with tons of features then i think you had better look elsewhere because this phone has none of the modern 'conveniences' that other ones offer
  • Remember this isn't ideal as an everyday phone, but due to it's relatively low cost makes it perfect for an emergency backup phone

      Okay this is a bit of a somewhat ‘older’ type of phone, especially feature wise. The main characteristic of this mobile phone is the fact that it can play MP3 files, (Keep in mind that MP3 is only part of the files that are recognizable as MP3, AMR, FR, EFR, HR are also recognizable) and even that isn’t top-notch quality. The phone can last quite a bit of time especially given how much mine lasts (about 1 hour in talk mode), this one lasts just over 10 hours in ‘talk’/'music’ mode, and about 250 hours in standby mode.

      Unfortunately though this particular model is only a dual band(meaning that you can only use it in Italy, and Europe), sure it’s not ‘useless’ per se` but it does leave you with limited roaming possibilities. The cell phone is fairly small and fits well into most pockets, even in


      the tightest ones.

      The phone keyboard is pretty well illuminated with a ghastly red glow. The screen does not offer great detail, nor (for that matter) even remotely ‘acceptable’ as the screen is somewhat ‘pixelated’ (when looked up-close) as it does not have that LCD-like effect.

      The screen is somewhat annoying to look at as is the design of the phone in general. It is far too plain, and in my opinion does not offer much innovation, it is just your standard brick like shape without any attempt t give it a more interesting line.

      I would only recommend this phone as a back-up to your everyday phone. A phone which I keep in the car with a ‘prepaid’ sim card for “just in case” situations.

      I have the car charger for it so I never have to worry about being stranded (apart from being in a ...


      • no roaming zone where there is no signal) without the possibility to call someone. I would also use it when I went to places where cellphones seem to attract destruction or where they are more prone to being stolen such as at a gyms, theme parks, hockey games or any other kind of those places.

        I would also advise it to parents who want to give their kids their first phone. This is primarily due to the fact that the long lasting battery ensures that the phone will almost always be charged and the fact that it is very sturdy, which believe you me, with kids it is very important.

        It is better to buy them a ‘cheaper’ but sturdier phone to start out with, otherwise you risk that they could break within a month. If though you want a really cool phone with tons of features

        then i think you had better look elsewhere because this phone has none of the modern ‘conveniences’ that other ones offer.

        I personally didn’t find myself particularly enjoying this phone, it had nothing to offer, and I purchased it knowing that. If you do intend to buy this phone know that it has nothing to offer, and those few features it does have (MP3) isn’t really that great.

        The sound quality could be better, as could the internal microphone. I mean sometimes it would be hard to hear, not so much because of sound quality but because of volume.

        During a call you could be forcing yourself to listen and all of a sudden you would get a sudden burst of sound that makes you jump. Remember this isn’t ideal as an everyday phone, but due to it’s relatively low cost makes it perfect for an emergency backup phone.
