I always suffer the same fate every contract phone I get. It never last the contract length in this case 18 months. I had the w880i before I bought this but didnt want to spend a fortune on a new mobile. This has pretty much all the features of the w880i accept for the slim style, that said it isnt big either.
It is a good all round phone, smart looking and sounding and for £50 its fantastic value. when I have some spare money I may even buy another one for when this one gets battered. well worth the money
This is the most feature packed phone for the price. it has a Walkman, 2.0 mp camera and fitness applications. Some people have said that it is bulky, and this worried me a bit until i saw it, and i can say its not, it slides nicely into the pocket. Also it has all the normal features Blue tooth, infrared, alarms, notes and calendar. A very nice little phone hence the 5 stars!!
I had read reviews on people with Rubber Casing falling off etc and was having second thoughts about buying the phone, but for £50, Play.com were almost giving it away! The features are very similar to the w580i, and so are the looks/layouts/menus, except this has Walkman v.2 and the w580i has the new v.3. It doesn't matter because they all perform in the same way. However, for maximum safety and performance, I would recommend getting a case of some sort (Clear Case is Good - I have it!) to prevent any rubber problems, and get a 2/4gb memory card for it if you're a serious music/pictures person (They range from £10-£30; not expensive). Great Buy - and a real bargain considering it's competitors!!!!
