This was posted in a thread featuring all the Three refurb phones, and I thought it was a bit unfortunate for it to go cold. I'll explain, so please read before you vote it cold:

-Available in Grey, Pink and the regular.
-£12 Quidco.
-Three don't make it mandatory to buy the phone with credit like every other company seems to be doing. In fact, if you transfer your previous number, they will give you £10 credit for FREE (See below).
-From what I can see, the next cheapest price for this phone is £90 at Littlewoods?
-Every 'refurb' phone I've had have basically been brand new, still with that plastic seal over them. A majority of the time they are unwanted returns that can no longer be sold 'as new'.
-Assuming you top up with credit you'll get a bundle of free texts and 150MB Mobile Internet data allowance for 90 days. Free Windows Live Messenger, and seemingly Facebook/Twitter, too
-14-day money back guarantee (so if it looks used just send it back??)

I personally think it's a superb deal, when you take in account the £10 credit and £12 Quidco, the phone works out at £36.50. In my opinion it's far better than the Tocco Lite/LG Cookie which always seem to get hot here - those have touch screen, yes...but they are extremely limited in terms of Messenger/Facebook as they are mainly not on the 3 network.

Pretty hot....
small correction in desc though....this mobile has not got WiFi
Are these phones locked?

I wouldn't mind one of these to replace my Nokia 5800 which just plain fell apart - the piece of crap - but I've got a contract with O2.

Surely its under warranty :thumbsup:
Well, I say it fell apart - there may have been some input on my part ;) (Dropped it and the power button internals snapped off the PCB - I managed to deal with that by shorting the contacts with a key or suchlike when I needed it off/on. Then a month or so later the charger socket broke).
I do think the phone should have survived this kind of moderate abuse, but no way would warranty cover obvious physical damage. It was a bloody annoying phone anyway - OS was really, really bad and touchscreen was absolutely rubbish. Seriously, I don't know what the hell Nokia was thinking when they thought these S60v5 phones (5800, N97) could compete with the iPhone. They should have cut their losses and gone with Android because Symbian is just preposterously terrible. But I digress.

This T715 looks decent - wouldn't pay more than £100 for it judging by reviews, but £50 for a 3G and GPS enabled phone with decent mail sync capabilities, facebook and google maps sounds like my kind of thing.
Real shame about the GPS - a lot of places imply it's included.

The annoying thing is it does seem to come locked and there doesn't seem to be a way to flash/unlock it yourself without paying for it. I assume it will come with branded "3" firmware which is likely to lag behind in updates if it ever gets any at all (browsing some forums it seems there has been a recent firmware update full of improvements).
Quidco often doesn't track or is declined with 3.
Customer service from 3 is s*1t
Still waiting after 1.5 months for credit on a return item RMA'd and sent back after 4 days, so don't rely on 14 day guarantee
Best avoid

You and me both. I find these forums funny sometimes, this is currently 43° and my thread from yesterday is -14° yet they are the same deal.

At least by you reposting some people have found themselves a bargain, they probably just looked at the cold votes on mine and thought it was a bad deal.
