the £29.95 includes £10 credit,the phone is available on Orange OR Vodafone,i assume its unlocked to all networks.

Ive read some quite positive reviews about this phone.

The Alcatel OT-708, known as the One Touch MINI, is ideal for first time touch screen phone owners, due to its user-friendly interface and dedicated touch panel.

If you're worried about accidentally using your phone when it's in your pocket or bag because of the touch screen, then don't, because Alcatel have ensured the screen is resistive to swipes and multitouch.

Navigating menus is easy with the MINI's intuitive controls, and you can access applications with a tap of the screen. There's even a selection of widgets that take you straight to the phone's weather report, call log, music player, calendar or wallpaper.

Get online via GPRS to purchase more widgets, or possibly a book as the MINI comes pre-installed with an eBook reader. You can also use your mobile to browse websites and send emails.

An integrated 1.3 Megapixel camera with video recording is great for capturing the moment while having fun with friends. You can playback video clips on the bright 2.4 inch screen and add images to multimedia messages or send them to friends via Bluetooth 2.0.

The OT-708 has an MP3 music player that plays files in a range of formats, and an FM radio with RDS. It supports microSD memory cards up to 4GB.

This great value touch screen phone comes with loads of handy features, including an integrated speaker for hands free phone calls, a mobile internet browser and pre-installed games. It's user-friendly, approachable and stylish.

Hopeless phone. Slow and difficult to use.

I just bought this as a present for my sister-in-law as a small phone to take on nights out which was also touch screen. I tested it out with virgin, o2 & vodaphone sim cards and all worked so the phone is totally unlocked. The screen is clear, and I had a quick check of the touch screen sensor which I thought was pretty responsive (no delay after touching menu buttons etc), plus it's got shortcuts on the main screen like music player, messages etc... I was impressed at the phone at such a cheap price (and I'm comparing this to my touch screen Nokia xpress phone).

I disagree it's hard to use, and reccomend it for people who want a back up/second phone, or small phone to take on nights out.

I disagree too - not as easy to use as a basic nokia maybe - but a great wee phone for under thirty quid.

Even my dad can work this one !

Same price at e2save with £7.50 quidco (and available on O2 at this price too)
