Its extremely likely it will be locked to Virgin who unlock phones free - but only after a prespecified spend on their top ups (which used to be £30 - but I dont know if that still applies).

I actually bought this from Zavvi just before Christmas for £10 (+£10 credit) and to be honest, for the price, I have to be happy with it.

I moved from a Noka 6230i and have to say that the Nokia was far easier to use and had a more responsive interface, especially for entering text messages. This phone is hard to type messages one-handed, since the weight of the top screen makes the phone fall backwards, so that's not so good. The camera is a nasty affair compared with the Nokia too and the screen is a little slow to respond and washed out. Oh, and the folding mechanism can give the skin on your finger a nasty nip if you open the phone up and catch it. Oh, and 3-4 days battery life is all you can expect.

BUT, it's not all bad news. It takes MicroSD has better sound quality from the speaker, better call reception and has a better gprs browser than the nokia. The a2dp bluetooth audio works fine with my Sony bt headphones. Oh, and it's cheap as chips.

For £20, I don't think you'd be disappointed at all. I also got a pink one for my mum and she's happy with it too. Not sure what would be better for the cash but would be eager to hear from anyone with any views, as the short battery life is starting to annoy me a little and I'd like to upgrade.
To be fair you are comparing it with what was a fairly top end phone.

I thought it was a good bet to work through the texts, then use as a holiday phone.

Do you know if it has a small USB charging socket - so I could power it from a battery extender?

Its funny how this has collected quite a few cold votes without anyone actually listing...

1. A cheaper model that takes memory cards.

2. A problem with the phone.

3. A better alternative for a similar price or better.

4. Anything expressing Virgin to be the amongst the worst mobile companies.
this is just what my boyfriend has been looking for, Thanks!!

Indeed, the 6230i was great when it first came out, and even though I got it as an upgrade would have cost £120-150 if bought payg!

It doesn't come with a small USB charging socket, it's their own bespoke socket, as ever. Roll on the UN directive on unifying charging devices for these things!

But for £20, it's a great little phone. It's really well made too and looks like it could survive a few drops. Gets a little scratched on the outer cover when you keep it in your pocket with keys etc, but so does everything.

Don't let my impression of it put you off. The only reason I want to trade up is because I got used to charging up my phone every weekend when I used my Nokia. I've actually gone for a base model Motorola phone that was posted here from CPW last week. It came to £3.85 or something + £10 topup - £10 quidco. It's a ****** candy-bar thing, with mono-screen but lasts a reputed 2 weeks between charges!

I don't tend to buy a phone for features, but for lack of hassle and one with a 1 week + recharge period is perfect!
I am expiring this deal as it no longer seems useful with my other half having spent 35 mins tonight on her second call to virgin CS, in addition to emailing them - which goes to show its not just foreign call centres who can find english to be a difficult language.
