£10 for a handset locked to a network and with no credit is OK. But I'd rather buy a £20 top up and receive an Android Smartphone unlocked to any network, and have the £20 credit carphonewarehouse.com/pho…pay

Well I'm assuming if your elderly or need a emergency phone thats overkill

Whats the point in a smart phone with no wifi and a miniscule memory?

​It's not a smartphone, its a feature phone.

The main purpose is to use it for phone calls and texting.

Same statement could be applied to any 3G handset, inc OP.

Does this support WhatsApp?

It's a feature phone with 3G - At least you'll be able to use email to an extent. People happily vote hot for feature phones at this price,, so 3G is a bonus.

Any ideas if it can be unlocked? Ideal for using on Three pay and go 321

Having physical buttons with 3G is almost unique in todays market. Voda have a ZTE at double the price in Argos.

Having buttons is overkill ? No for some it is more functional.


I use my button phone as my main call/text device as battery power is important to me for surfing internet on my phatlet as well as my old school communication devices to make old school contact 'offline'


Using one device for both is a no no for fitted batteries, I have a 7" and 10" tablet and a phatlet with inbuilt batteries, not a mobile PHONE with buttons with a spare battery in my pocket

Not much on ebay for unlocking, guessing this is quite a new model

just got this, tried emailing a few on eBay to unlock but no joy, any one else has success?

Anyone found a unlocking service for this phone?

sure i seen unlock info here somewhere http://forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/

but it turned out it accepted my Anywhere 'roaming' sim so I expect the sim is o2/Manx ? I did not try any other sim
argos.co.uk/pro…295 <----Anywhere UK sim, roams on all 4 UK networks

Did you ever find any way? That link from seaniboy suggests that it is possible.

Yeah, problem is they will probably want £15 & I am wondering if it is worth the £5 I paid (I expected the phone to be better & to be unlocked for 99p as has been my experience with previous alcatel phones - wasn't expecting Nokia quality, but wasn't expecting such a clunky phone that frankly feels overpriced at £5).
