Depending on how big the external memory card is, this could double up as a cheap mp3 player aswel as a phone.

Thanks airey ;-)

For anyone interested: The supplied microSD is 128MB (holds around 30 songs)...

I can see this thread reaching the main page veeeery quickly.

I bought the t-mobile edition of this phone for my nephew a few weeks ago from woolworths, but their version only comes with a 32mb card.

Great deal.

1GB MicroSD £7.85 delivered, maybe handy for anyone who buys the phone...

it says in the review above that it's 128MB microSD card included, but the best way to check is always to go to ebay, find a few of these phones listed (or completed), select the ones locked to Orange and then check the listing details to see what size the card is (128MB in this case)

Does anyone know if this can be unlocked for free?

If you have the equipment, yes!

Great price for this airey, thanks for posting :thumbsup: Looks like a decent phone for the price!

Sorry to throw cold water on this but this is phone is really pretty poor.

I bought one from Argos at £29.99 but returned it as the quality of the sound of the phone is terrible. You can barely hear the person on the other end.

If you want one for very occasional calls then ou probably won't find a cheaper phone. Also the mp3 function works really well.

If you have bought the phone, this maybe a good buy for those mp3's...

Phone arrived today..looks nice, not bad for £14.99
Problems with the new Orange automative SIM registering service, it takes all your details, but fails to put them on the system, you then get forwarded to Orange CS who tell you to ring back in 4 hours.
Luckily I have a little supply of pre registered Orange SIMs to use.
Headphones are uncomfortable, and you have to use them because of the connection. Ringtones are dire, but easy to get some new ones
Overall a smart phone worth the money

128mb is included

I presume this means you have to register the phone/sim:

"Please note that your commission will only be received after you activate your phone. It can take up to two months to appear in your transactions listing"

good buy! well... i thought so anyway - has anyone figured how to put custom ring tones on it yet?

Does this phone have a flight mode option?
whats the mp3 playback like?
is it drag and drop?
battery life on mp3s?
bluetooth?

thanks

Just got this phone & after a bit of trouble loading on the mp3 files, am very pleased with it. I dragged & dropped, once i created a folder called MP3. Sounds good to me. Doesn't appear to have a flight mode option (whatever that is) & no bluetooth. Get £1 airtime on registration.

My Quidco has not been tracked yet is this normal for Orange?

In my experience, Orange are just about the worst for paying out. I think I've had to put a claim in for every phone I've ever bought from them. I've lost some from Quidco which have never been paid. Another well knwon cashback site has been a little more successful but they don't pay as much. Here are the stats fro Orange from Quidco,
