low spec toy it seems

low spec toy it seems



And I'm guessing at £40 you're expecting it to have GPS, 8gb of memory and a flux capacitor.

Hot from me :thumbsup:

This is sold as the T-Mobile Tap in the USA, which does have GPS - I don't think this one does.

cool. heat added

bought this phone today has gps maps and route finder also works connected to laptop. as modem but can not axcess adult content. also did not have to buy £10 airtime.

Three use O2 network if you can't pick up a 3g signal, so best of both!!!!

Did they ask you if you wanted the top up or did you just buy it with no questions,
as I just need the phone not the top up.
And do you like the phone

when i went to the till to pay she said i have to buy £10 airtime i said in the christmas catalog that there was no mention about buying airtime she said ok £39.99. using the phone as modem seems faster than my 3 dongle. but the phone blocks adult content 3 say if use credit card for 99 pence they add to your balance they verify your age to tacke off the block. the phone works ok you can get emils on the phone if you have the £5 a month add on. when viewing emails on laptop it only shows words no pictures i was wondering if anybody new if it could be changed. payed the 99 pence charge to remove block still blocked you can only view what 3 wants you to pay for.

I've got one from the local Argos this morning without airtime.

It looks like good quality build. However, it is a cut-down version of U7510. It does not have the FM radio as claimed in the Argos Web site and it has only single camera. The standard U7510 has a secondary front facing camera for video call.

Thats strange, 3store online says 2 camera, ill confirm the actual spec of the 3store device tomorrow.
Argos ones should be the same as they are supplied by 3 to argos.

hi guys,

bought one of these two days ago, it aint bad for the cash, like many of the people here i got from argos for 39.99 didnt need to buy a top up.

it does only have one camera and has no radio, but that wasnt why i bought it so it dont bother me.

i bought it as a put me on, but might end up keeping it longer.

there isnt anything really wrong with it, just basic but then its cheap so all is good.

touch screen works fine, internet is fast, email is good etc etc.

ringtones are a little low and the widgets cant be changed but again i guess the design of the software would be limited by the price..

oh the camera is pretty rubbish unless you are outside in good sunlight.

any questions i could help with im always happy to help!

thanks,lee

does anyone know if i could use this with a 02 sim?? thanx

So is this one different to the one Three are selling instore? Hence perhaps the price reduction only a few weeks after release. Image on Argos site clearly show the front camera, so good grounds for return if not happy.

Just spoke to Three online and their version apparently does have front camera and FM radio and is exclusive to them. I think I will see it instore first to confirm.

EDIT: Have just gone back to Three website and now their image of the phone does not show the front camera, it has changed while I was talking to them. Description remains the same though.

huawei phones are awesome, the OS is a bit basic but they are built very well. I've had one for a few years now.

They are unlockable, Ebay is the place to look.

Also, 3 back their network onto T Mobile, not O2 as previously stated. They USED to back onto O2, but no longer do:

en.wikipedia.org/wik…ile

I might have one of these as a spare.

"Three use O2 network if you can't pick up a 3g signal, so best of both!!!!" ah they stopped using o2 now - started using orange instead

And in 2012 they will drop Orange, and you will only be able to use the 3 network, with a 3 phone.

Nope - 3 use the Orange network if there isn't a 3 signal - have done for the last couple of years.

Doubtful that 3 would ever leave itself without a 2G fallback network....but the way the mobile market is changing at the moment, it's probably more likely that 3 will belong to someone else.

thanks have reserved one for tomorrow....

i have a few questions... i presume I will be to use my 02 dongle (on the go) with this to access wifi hotspot etc and conect to my wifi broadband at home...can anyone confirm? :thumbsup:

no built in wifi on this phone.
why would you want to use it with a dongle? surely you would just use the internet on the phone over the 3 network, and use your dongle with a laptop?

basically because it as cheap as chips (2 pound per weeK)...Im presuming internet charges might be high on this pAYG plan... if not thats cool... but im skint and can't afford like 15 a month or anything:thumbsup:

This is exactly the same as in store at Three. No difference, no front camera and no radio - saw one this afternoon and staff confirmed. So bargain at Argos despite description error.

Only 1 camera, Skype does not work on the U7510 at the moment, currently there is no fix either.

What do you mean that skype and msn is always free on skype? Does it means that if I buy a 3 sim and then I can use skype on it for free unlimited? should I topup everymonth? I am not using mobile a lot ( I am topup 10 pounds every 3 to 6 months)

ya because o2 dont have much 3g coverage, everyone else does, sorry o2 but you are so yesterday.

Sorry, can someone who has a unit confirm if it has a gps or not? I can see mixed specs in different websites.
