you get the same phone from Argos eBay for £10 without top-up.
also you get from Virgin website for £8 if you are existing customer. I think it is free to become a customer, just order a free sim and you will be asked to register and automatically become a existing customer.

Reserve and collect requires you to buy a £10 top as well.

most cases you need to purchase £10 top-up which is where they are making money..
But it looks like Argos haven't figured out how to force £10 top-up for fast track orders and hence we are able to purchase them cheaper.

I haven't tried this, but looks good seller -> ebay.co.uk/itm…771

Will Whatsapp work on this?

Might have to get one as a stocking filler!

It ain't no BlackBerry is it!

What network is it on? And can it be easily unlocked?

I was going to go for this as a spare phone, but grabbed this instead. Bypassing the req £10 top up made this ideal with my spare ee sim card

Where's the fast teach option?

3g?

Great price, prefer other network though !

Good deal. Thing is...I can find a good useable second hand android phone with GPS and half decent camera on Ebay for 20 quid delivered... But this ain't a bad deal.

Ideal phone for the oldies
Very similar layout to blackberry apparently

Does not mention OS, but looks like a proprietary one that probably does not support apps.

Virgin media's site blocked at work but the Google cache supports your theory as it states 'proprietary'

I just bought one
I wanted 2 but it only allows for one, has anyone be able to unlock this via ebay
thanks

It's not 3g and Whatsapp won't work with it.

The handset is a 2g gsm so highly unlikely to work on EE.

There's even a cheaper one for £2.99 [http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/2821452.htm]
as a friend of mine say: "drug dealer's phone"

How do I 'fasttrack' can only reserve ??

I didn't quite understand this Fast Track system.
There's a list of selected stores in a link in the post to the Fast Track explanation but all the stores there say "coming soon" - and my local store isn't in this list - so I assumed any store not in the list would have the Fast Track system in place.
Tried to buy one but there's no option to actually pay, only to reserve and collect in store (and pay, I suppose).

Edit: with the order number in hand and paying at the Quick Pay Kiosks should do the job then?

I tried that. It didn't work. The kiosk would not process the payment, and sent me to a till where I was given the opportunity of adding a £10 topup to the order, or cancelling it.

This is the only list I could find of stores with FastTrack (the link on the Fasttrack blurb page only opens if I'm using the mobile site).

To pay by fast track, click on the order, then click buy and collect, then go to trolley, when it gets to payment options, click on fast track, then make payment, I used pay pal to pay and it worked

I did the same. Didn't want to topup with VIRGIN mobile. So I took a look at the phone on display at the counter and one look and I was off home !!
Phone looks cheap, plastic, and smaller than expected so glad I didn't pre-pay first

Well, in the end of the day it is a cheap, plasticky phone, to be used as spare/emergencies/car, no?

To be honest Alcatel isn't a brand I trust so I was considering equally cheap, plasticky Nokia ones but there's no Argos near me with this Fast Track option. Heat added anyway.

I BOUGHT THE £2.99 AND £5.99 ONES, THAT WOULD DO AS A SECOND PHONE FOR MY LYCA SIM CARD TO MAKE INTERNATIONAL CALLS ETC, AND A SPARE PHONE IF MY PHONE GIVES UP OR FOR VISITORS WHO NEED A PHONE IN THE UK WHILE AROUND, THIS WOULD DO
THANKS

I'm in two minds whether to go for this or the new iPhone - at least this has an FM radio so may go for this (its also a lot cheaper)
I can see the iphone looks quite nice but i only need it call my grandson most days
