Nokia X3-02 - Vodafone PAYG - £80

Found 26th Jan 2011
Been looking out for a phone with a 'normal' keypad for a while, and this hybrid with a touch screen too looks ideal.

I've just signed up for this with £5 quidco, and also got a 12 month sim on the £15 a month £110 quidco deal (300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500mb data).

-23?! Come on you beggars, I don't care that it's not gone hot, but I've still got time to cancel my order if this is either:
a. a rubbish phone (the few reviews I read said it was good, 3 day battery life, quick loading internet, nice screen etc)
b. a rubbish deal.

Fess up!

ok deal for a really average phone.
Voted hot though. Cant find it cheaper anywhere else.

Hi kyashwanth36 - have you had a play with this? Any feedback on it would be much appreciated - I've took a chance on it based on the reviews, the fact it's slim and the fact Vodafone have a 7 day returns policy if I don't like it.

have some heat thanks for the post

My friend has it. It looks and feels good and the camera is excellent in decent light but the symbian os is a pain, especially if you are used to an android or apple phone.
If you are looking for a smartphone or want to use the internet(screen cant display full page) always, then make use of the 7 day return policy.

Pity, android and its a winner!

You have to then get a top up to take it to the same price as this - and this had £5 quidco, and I wanted to get a 12 month vodafone sim with quidco...so this one worked out well for me.

I didn't think these were 3G/HSDPA but looks like they are!

Very tempted :o)

Is it a £15 tariff or the £10 one with a add on/bolt on ? Only asking as i pay £10 for 300 mins unlim texts and can add 500mb for £5 .... The only one i can see on the vodafone website with what you mentioned is iphone only ..... I am not 100% sure but i think your only get quidco for the £10 package as the internet is a addon that can be removed at anytime.....

Ahh, you might be right gunner. Quidco has only tracked at £20 - which I'd imagine is £5 for the phone, £15 for the sim. If it doesn't change over the next couple of days to £110 then it's going back.

What I thought I was signing up for was the £15 a month iPhone one, and just using it in this.

Good lord what an ugly colour it is.
Phone itself is very slim and I think in silver or black it'd great - but it's one fugly phone in electric blue.
It's going back - and as a note of warning, the vodafone system is bloody awful to get through - and I'm still not convinced they will send the email with the info on how to return it - but even if they do it's been a pest to arrange.

phones4u bumped it up to £79.95 +£10 topup. Direct still the best...going to get one of these after my osf sells! So bored with android lol.

Want to buy mine? Vodafone still haven't sent the return info, and I'm buggered if I'm braving their automated call routing system again tonight.
It's not even been out the box - my wife took one look at it when I lifted the lid on it and said "ugggh, you must be joking".

If this is still the case mate I could only do so if you were interested in trading it with my white san francisco...?

ah, I would, but I had one of those and didn't like it at all. Fortunately it didn't work properly either so I returned it to Argos.
Sorry.
