Brand new. Seems to be £20-30 cheaper than from other sellers.

No top-up required. Free unlocks using Omnius (google it). 12 month warranty.

I know this phone's been out a while now but it seems like a good deal to me. 3MP camera, Walkman. It doesn't mention anything in the description, but it probably comes with a set of noise-reducing earphones and a 2GB M2 card. Swap it out for an 8GB M2 (pretty cheap these days) and you've got yourself a really good phone.

Me and oh had this for over a year, call quality leaves alot to be desired, lovely thin phone but reception problems means no thanks really.

I've had mine for ages and never had a problem with the reception. Never noticed anything wrong with the call quality either.

Someone's bound to ask if it's locked so I'll get it out of the way early doors.

Ahem... Is it locked?

Note to self... Read the ruddy post!

In my experience O2 phones tend to be unlocked anyway, but even if this isn't, it's quite easy to do it yourself using Omnius.

i have had one of these for over a year keeps cutting off and switching off never buy another...

Good deal imo. A lot of the issues with this handset are easily fixed by downloading the later firmware.

^ Yep, mine was a bit laggy at first but it's been working perfectly since I updated it.

Mine was perfect for around a year and then I started having the exact same problem and was forced to get a new phone. It's a shame because otherwise its very very good.

Easy and free to unlock:

Fairly easy to debrand and upgrade to latest firmware, can vouch for reliability with latest firmware,

I've had this phone for 1.5 yrs. Even with latest firmware it's reboots itself about twice per month. Basically it turns off and a little red light on the back comes on. The only way to restart is to remove battery for about 30 seconds then replace and power up. It's branded by vodafone so maybe the O2 one in this deal will be OK.

P.S. If using SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Service) program to update this handset you may need to hold down the "5" key on your phone instead of the "C" key when plugging in the USB cable in order for the software to recognise the phone and check your firmware.

Bad phone - kept switching off - and managed it twice in the shop when I returned it expecting an argument!

At least its unreliability was reliable.

Oh ebay only or from stores?
