Nice little smartphone, good if you don't need the latest and greatest

Lol Edi, I'd already been trying to find this on the Orange site and couldn't.

OH, it's Orange Accessories.

No QuidCo cashback available then Edi. ;-)

Not sure why this deal is marked expired :roll:

So the quidco needs to be removed from the title?

Also the large pic of it is in silver, this will actually be in black!

That comment was waaayyy too camp Edi....but on the plus side these are very good lil' phones. It might not be the latest & greatest as has been pointed out but in terms of value for money @ this price it's excellent!
(Heated & repped)
Duckmagic...as resident moby expert, are these unlockable?

Yes, I've done it with the following link:

Haven't yet tried it on my C600 though although link says it can be done.

EDIT: have now unlocked the C600; contact orange for a file specific to your phone and they will email it to you.

I have one of these (actually my wife claimed it when I got the next SPV!). I have tried other phones, but I think this is great. The inbuilt MP3 player works well, though I'd advise buying at least a 2gb mini SD card.

Used to own a C500 - damn nice phone and for this price it's a superb bargain. Voted Hot.

CEX have had C500's listed as Grade A ('Used' presumuably rather than recon'ed) @ £60 for a bit too...doesn't stop it being a good price.

Hi all, long time viewer, first time poster.

I considered getting an SPV C500 but took a C550 instead, as it has a much bigger, better quality SQVGA screen, a proper joystick, and media playing buttons.

Plus, i got my SPV C550 as a one day old phone that someone had returned to the store (so basically it was boxed new, not a mark on it) for £60 from an Orange dealer, so although i will vote this hot there are better deals out there.

Just don't get the C600, its just a C550 with a later version of Windows Mobile installed.

Aswell as unlocking it, you may want to get it appliaction unlocked aswell-this means you can run programs that aren't digitally signed by Microsoft (such as Legacy Emulators).

No it doesnt, it only has GPRS (not even EDGE)

Welcome to HotUKDeals Andysan and Thanks all for the extra info/images

Very nice find edi!

I still use a silver c500 - haven't found a better phone - runs tomtom gps and mp3s nicely and isn't too big or too small

I have a C600 since last 1.5 years. Crap phone..It keeps hanging all the time.The phone doesnt have wifi so u possibly cannot install applications like skype. The menu is not very user friendly and the the joystick is very difficult to get around with.I have changed this phone once within the last 6 months since the joystick stopped working(under warranty :-) )
I serious no buy

I have a C550 - next model up from this, and it is fantastic. Does such a huge range of stuff - music, movies, gps, ebooks - if this is half as good, it comes highly recommended.

I have owned the 500 and 550 - both are great phones, but the 550 is better, though it is slightly larger. I got the 550 for £60 from the orange shop a while back.

Both phones can be unlocked for free using a freeware download app - I cant remember the specifics, but I got it from ]http//ww…om/ - check out the forums there for more details.

I used a C500 for about 2 years, and never had single problem with it. Excellent phone. Once you've used a Windows Smartphone you'll never use anything else :).

I'm using an IQ (v1240, i-mate sp5, qtek 8310) at the moment, and it's great! It's basically the C600 but with Wifi, so if you're looking for a Smartphone with wifi, check it out.

As mentioned above, ]http//ww…com is an excellent place to find information on these phones.

How about C550 with music pack and 512mb card for the same price sound?

I've tried loads of Smartphones SPVC500, Nokia 6600, E61, SPVM3100. The C600 is brilliant, screen is fantastic and I can't understand why you say the menus are difficult. I find the joystick fine, much better than C500.

If you want a keyboard though, for loads of email, then go for the M3100.

Have to agree with that; I've been very impressed with my C600. I changed from the Orange menu on the left of the screen to the standard Windows Mobile 2005 menu along the top.

Never had a problem with the joystick either.

What I really like is the variety of WM software available - been playing Sudoko on it for a while now and it's great for passing the time on boring journeys

Blackhorse,
I contacted Orange retail shop in Newcastle who told me the offer you mentioned on the C550 is not available.
I work for the NHS is there any way I can get one of these sent out by you or would I need to contact the other shops and pick it up?

cheers!!
