I have one of these and I woundn't recommend it


I have one of these and I woundn't recommend it

Thanks for your input. Was very tempted to order one; particularly because of it's Exchange mail support. Impossible to get a phone with MS Exchange, wifi, GPS and 3G for £50!

Some reviews complained about battery, text message issues and dpad. Are these the reasons you wouldn't recommend it?

All windows are just BAD and this has Windows 6.1 ...No Thanks!!

I've got one of these phones and I like it but let's be honest Windows as a phone operating system is a bit awkward and really best for a business phone not an everyday recreational phone especially when the phone doesn't have a touch screen. The phone looks and feels well made . I bought from Expansys and it was unlocked. It's even got a 2 year warranty and £10 credit, what more do you want?

I guess we can get better one for just a little more.

Urgh, save a bit more and get an Orange San Francisco!


My last phone was a Windows Mobile 6.1 very similar to this. It really is stone age technology compared to the Orange San Francisco with a custom ROM. You'll spend ages fiddling about with your little stylus going through a never-ending series of menus. Even if it was 20 quid I would go for an Android.
