This is a small, stylish feature packed 3g phone. There is an excellent glowing review of it here:

http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/mobiles/0,39030106,49285904,00.htm

The camera isn't as good as on the K800i, but this phone is much lighter, slimmer and more stylish.

As well as being available online, it is also in stock at many stores so you could order it and pick up straight away.

The next cheapest place I've managed to find it is Woolworths for £79.99, so this is an excellent deal.

Why? Elaborate. Everyone who I know with this phone really likes it.

If you have a K550i you can upgrade the firmware to make it a W610i and Unlock it for Free too ! :thumbsup:

If this phone was unlocked, does anyone know if it will work on Three's network?

Not a bad phone but not worth £50 to me

Your own personal opinion of the phone is irrelevant though in terms of voting the deal hot or cold. The idea is that if this deal is significantly cheaper than what is available elsewhere (which it is) then it gets voted hot. Letting your own subjective opinion determine whether you vote it hot or cold is just misleading for others.
Anyway voted hot by me as it's much cheaper than the next cheapest price.

Can you please elaborate? Do you have to take it to a technician or can you do that at home for free? I have a locked k550i. :?

if you buy k550i at same place for the same price, you get camera with autofocus, but k550i is not 3g phone so you have to decide what do you like more 3g or autofocus ;)

But the K550i can be upgraded to a W610i by firmware .

Will this activate the 3G capability ? Or is 3G hardware reliant ?

No it's not! Your own personal opinion of how deals should be voted can also be considered irrelevant in that case. I think a deal should be voted on value for money - this includes price AND the actual product. Just because it's cheaper doesn't mean it's a great deal!
#15
We use these as our company phones. They do the job, but battery life is quite poor. And a lot of our users have had issues with the phone turning itself off at random intervals.

A much better alternative would be the K750i

Still, not a bad deal though.

I don't think this is MY personal opinion of how deals should be voted hot or cold, I think this is the general opinion of the forum. If people vote hot or cold for a deal based on what their own personal subjective views on the product are then it's totally misleading. Surely it's better to to vote a deal hot or cold based on what the current "market rate" is and then post up any personal reservations or endorsements in the relevant thread? Doing it your way means that people can potentially overlook great deals that would be perfect for them just because other people with their own unique tastes,experiences etc have voted it cold. A lot of people rely heavily on how hot a deal is to decide whether to buy or not.
A good example of this is when people post DVDs that are heavily reduced and people vote cold because they didn't enjoy the film. I couldn't care less what other people's views are on films yet an individual could look at thread see it voted cold and think that it's not so good a deal and thus miss out on what could have been a really good (in their opinion) film at a cheap price.
Anyway, I'm not trying to enforce my views on this, at the end of the day people can do what they want. It's just that I've benefitted so much in the past from the site that I'd hate for other people to miss out on deals for the wrong reasons.

3G is harware reliant, you can't make a non 3G phone in to a 3G phone by flashing the firmware.

Rubbish phone don't buy k750i is a much better option if you don't need the 3G. I had this phone battery isn't as good as other phones and build quality didn't feel as good as the k750i.

Guys I have this phone and I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. Having used the K750i for about 2 years and still going strong (even till now) I thought this would be an upgrade or rather 3G version of it, how wrong was I. Here are my reasons (already pointed out by some).

[LIST]
[*]Battery life is surprisingly poor, OK it's 3G so won't be as good as the K750, but the feature rich 3G W880 has better.
[*]The phone along with it's Z610 sibling often turns itself off randomly. I had this issue more in the early stages butt it somewhat stopped after 6-8 months. Perhaps an over the air firmware upgrade?
[*]The final point is that the durability is shockingly poor, the surface finish wears off very quickly revealing the cheap plastic base, so if you're a heavy user the phone will look very battered after a short while.
[/LIST]
I won't penalise it for the poor camera bcos it's obvious it lacks auto-focus so I had little expectations of it.

From personal experience the K750i is a bloody good phone that beats this hands down for reliability and durability, if 3G's a must, I find the W880i a more feature rich, and with it's brushed metallic finish, a more durable alternative.

I won't vote a product I don't like cold, I just abstain.

The design doesnt seem to look to nice either.

Ive had this phone, cracking little phone for a fab price, mine doesnt work now unfortunately due to jumping in a swimming pool with it in my pocket! So guys, its not waterproof! lol, VOTED HOT
#22
Had this phone a few weeks and like it. Gets a kicking on reliability on some review sites though e.g. mobile-phones-uk

Only real disappointment was lack of any light for camera whose quality is fine at 2mp - just about at the level where you can leave the dedicated camera at home if you only ever print small format prints or view on screen.

Synchronisation software (calendar contacts task etc) is much improved from previous versions.

3G connection and webpage display also make (albeit still limited) use of the web a bit easier.

Hope this helps.

Dont buy these phones. They are ****. Our company has had various amount of them replaced and yesterday all of them were sent back and replaced with Nokia 6300. Problems were phone didnt ring, therefore missed loads of important calls. Battery is ****, has to be charged everyday.Bluetooth wont work all times.camera is best bit.My advice dont buy it;-)

K750i is a pretty old model right?!
