eternaldeternald

For those of you who missed the deal a few weeks back for it including the £20 top-up the price has dropped again. Great phone for the money, oh and in before the g300 is a much better phone ;)

    Great price but I would save a few extra quid and get the G300. I used to have a OSF and the looked into getting this but for the extra £20 or so you get a brilliant phone with the G300.8)

    also the t-mobile vivacity is on offer for £62.99 if you'd prefer + the £10 top-up of course.

    agree g300 in a different class

    I'll admit the g300 is a better phone but its approx £33 dearer incl. top-up. I see this as a great android phone for a teenager or more tech savvy parent who might not need the improved features of a g300 as its perfectly usable.

    isn't the vivacity the same phone as the OSF 2?

    im sure everyone will agree that the g300 is a better piece of kit than the osf 2 but for £33.00 less inc £10 top-up and not too mention if it is similar to the original OSF it will be easy and free to unlock with a huge array of customisable roms etc. this is a hot deal

    Agree G300 is BEST.
    But this has front facing camera which someone might be interested to do video call (G300 don't have front camera).

    This is a really good deal but the phone has a very poor battery life. I wouldnt recomend it too others, i cant wait to buy something better and get rid of my one

    Good find. Worth it at that price.

    The battery life is fine, my girlfriend bought one when they were cheap from Argos a few weeks ago. I'd definitely recommend installing an Android ICS ROM on it though.

    The £10 top up is annoying. I already use orange on contract but unfortunately my phones been stolen so the credit is useless!

    you can sell it on some websites or you could keep it for orange wednesdays.

    I have a OSF I and I have to say if you turn off the 3G (you can get a widget for it) the battery life is boosted massively. It used to be a chore to have to turn on and off every time but the widget means you can do it so quickly i'd recommend all android users do it.

    I really want my OSF to bite the dust but until then I can't justify the purchase of another, regardless of that HEAT!

    Here's a guide on how to root, update the rom and unlock the phone - http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/GUIDE-How-to-Unlock-Orange-San-Francisco-II-For-Dummies/td-p/2880715

    I'm a bit of a geek and used to fiddling with phones, and did it in about ten minutes from scratch. Read the comments though, as the rom linked in the first post has a small issue, so I used a release called 'Fish'n'chips' (latest version here http://www.modaco.com/topic/350159-rom-fishnchips-7-235-testing-rls8/) that is suggested on page 19 of the giffgaff thread.

    Good price - I paid around this for my original San Francisco/ZTE Blade one year ago, and I've been tempted to update to the new one - especially if there's an ICS ROM for it. The Blade is an excellent phone, although I would complain about the battery life on it - I've had days where I've left the house in the morning with it fully charged, taken train journeys where I've used it for a couple of hours to text, send e-mails, browse websites and play games, and then get low battery warnings towards the end of the journey and end up not being able to call the people I'm going to meet. I keep a micro SD cable plugged into my computer at work to charge it up during the day, otherwise it won't last the evening if I use it on my commute. Would be great if the SFII improved on this, but I'm hearing conflicting reports. Asides from that, the SF is an excellent phone and I'd recommend it to anyone.

    Fish and chips runs better on the OSF2

    ICS is not fully developed/proven yet for this phone
