Lol thats right its a mistake, i did tell the guy on the till he said it was a mistake but its still not corrected online
Great price for dual sim. The camera pics are probably like finger paintings but I doubt anybody will be using that function much.
tempted to buy one.

Thats just based on my usage, im using 2 sims and have incoming and outside calls all day
Nokia ringing any bells.....
Would make a good discrete "secret" phone. Wouldn't be very good for looking at the pics she sends you tho, so cold from me!

Cold for this comment.



Thank you
I doubt I'd even bother with using the warranty at that price. if it brokw after a year, I'd just buy another. It would be less hassle.
Perfect for all you wannabe drug dealers out there...

Just need to get a Citroën saxo with dark tints and a bad boy body kit to match.
Can you get WhatsApp on this?
One of the few reviews says it can't do predictive text.
I'm assuming they just didn't turn it on.
Can you please confirm if it does, solo12

Thank you, already fast-tracked the 5 quid Nokia 130 and picking it up tomorrow and I think you helped me stick with it, but still voted this HOT. (This HAS to be Nokia too, based on the keypad)
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, planning to use a TPO SIM in it. Someone on that thread reported it fires straight up.
It won't work in my EE locked Samsung E1270, though my Orange SIM DOES work in the Samsung.
Funny old world!

Thats strange, but your e1270 can be unlocked from your local mobile shop for a fiver if that helps
Is there a dual sim 3g feature phone?
If I was desperate I'd let EE do it, only a fiver from them (99p Rakuten SIM + £4) too but I'd have some comeback if any problem.
Actually tempted because it's a really neat little phone.

Nokia 130 is good if tpo works in there straight out the box if thats all you need thn I suggest you go for it tbh
Does WhatsApp work on this? Else what's the use of 2g connectivity? Q&A on Argos site says Wifi. Does it connect to Wifi?
