"Smart little phone only"

I am using this phone for last 6 months or so. I can say and say so comfortably that this is just a phone and nothing else and that is why it is very good and dependable. No hassles of menus no complex applications. It is just a good simple phone.


* Look and feel of a phone is simple and good, no jigles and jazz just a simple phone. Very light weight phone.

* Features of the phone are simple and simple to a mere phone only nothing else. you will not find anything else inside this phone just simple menu containing messaging options, Phone book options, Call Detail options, Phone settings, Simple Calender and Alarm Clock options and 3 simple games. nothing else.

* Phone has very long talktime and standby time. I didnt need to charge the phone for days. I keep gossiping using this phone with my friends and my husband but the battery dose not end at all. i am never bothered about the phone battery at all.

* Phone has a built in Torch which is sometimes helpfull. i Occasionally use it when its really dark in the stairs of my house when power supply is off. some times at night i dont need to reach for light buttons just my phone aside my bed.


Good Phone, great value for money.
