I think this phone is absolutely fantastic. I got it for my birthday last year, my parents bought it from the internet for £39.99 with £10 credit on Virgin which I thought was a very cheap price.

Firstly it is a very small and surprisingly light phone at 85g. The phone measures less than 10cm x 5cm x 1.8cm.

The most exciting thing about the phone is the flashing lights that accompany the ring tones and message alerts. They vary dependent on which ring tone is selected. In my opinion the ring tones are really good perhaps more suited to younger people though but there is a wide variety.

The changeable back is also interesting and two replacement covers are provided. Basically the back is clear plastic and patterned stencils can be placed behind it.

The choice of wallpapers and screensavers is wide but I prefer to use photos which I think are very good quality considering the price of the phone. There are 3 qualities - high, normal and basic and there is also night vision and portrait options.

There are loads of different types of messages which can be sent including flash messages, emails, instant messages etc but I only use text messages. Flash messages are messages which are displayed immediately on the recipients phone - useful for urgent messages I suppose.

The phone does not show missed calls, missed when the phone has been off which is a bit annoying but the solution is to keep the phone on most the time - the battery lasts absolutely ages.

The games are alright - I like the water rapids game which is white water rafting and adventure racer which is like a triathlon, there is also pinball and a dance game all with flashing lights - amusing!

The phone also has the usual calender, to do list, notes, alarm, calculator and voice recorder. It has everything that I need and probably everything that most people need. I highly recommend this phone mainly because it is great fun but it is also a high quality phone. I have had it a few months now and have had no problems at all.

thanks this was the retail price - all my parents did was google it but lots of phone shops (carphone warehouse etc) and woolworths had it for that price on different networks but i wanted Virgin

I think this sounds like a good phone for the money paid for it. Is £40 the retail price or was it second hand? x
