I know this has been posted by Sunni, but i just wanted to let you guys know that for £84.95 (after quidco cashback) you get the Samsung Tocco Lite (which is a very good handset for the price) sim-free.

Im not bothered if you guys spam/expire this. I just wanted to confirm for those people who were asking if the handset comes sim-free from carphone warehouse...it does!!!

I got this handset in a black color with a vodafone payg sim and a £10 topup. But im using my O2 Simplicity simcard with it and the problem with the calls cutting out after 5 seconds when using a O2 simcard, seems to be resolved.

Overall the handset has a great touch screen, great sound and solid build quality. The touch screen qwerty keyboard is great, even with my big fingers im finding it a doddle to do texting.

I bought it from carphone warehouse on a vodafone payg option, but they send the phone sim-free and a vodafone simcard separately. So you can use it with your O2 simcard without any problems. Also the good thing is there isn't any network logos/branding within the handset software.

ordered yesterday from e2save and its £10 cheaper although they only had pink in stock got one for mrs and wee girl one black one pink (the black is same price as cpw)

but as i say if you want it in pink its £10 cheaper :-) on e2save

good price compared to other merchants but the phone is mediocre - had it one week and then gave it to my lil brother.

Looks like a great deal - what are the main difference between the Lite and the normal Tocco?

Lite doesn't have wifi or 3g, camera is 3.2mp with no flash, which im not bothered about, cos i use the internet at home anyway and a very good digital camera.

Someone quoted that e2save sell refurbished handsets, so that's why i went with carphone warehouse.

Really depends on what you want from your phone? Im not fussed about the lack of wifi and 3g. Otherwise the handsets good for me, specially the qwerty keyboard.

Correct, also no 5mp camera, no flash.

I have the tocco lite (S5230) think its a decent phone, the screen and touch facility are second to none, I believe its a good phone for under a £100.

Think i'd sooner choose the SonyE C510 from Play than this.

Carphone say there is no Voice Dailing, surely thats a mistake?

NO WIFI (and no internet offering) - this kind of defeats having this kind of touch screen phone does it not.

Well i received the phone at 5.30pm yesterday with 2 bars of battery and iv been playing around with it, sending texts along with a few short calls and its still on 2 bars. But reviews say the battery time is very good.

Doesn't sound SIM-Free?

specially the qwerty keyboard.



Keyboard? I thought this was touchscreen? If you're refering to the on-screen keyboard, don't all touchscreen phones have an on screen qwerty display?
For me, the only point of buying a touchscreen phone is to browse the web.

Comes with on screen qwerty yes.

I use the phone to check gmail and facebook whenever I am bored and need an excuse to be sidetracked from the other half and I think the speed is fine.

Well if i bought it with a vodafone payg simcard and im using my O2 simcard, i guess it is sim-free :thinking:

Plus there isn't any vodafone branding on the box or within the phones software.

Definitely sim-free

I havent had any issues with signal quality/strength, websites that reviewed the tocco lite would have mentioned it :thinking:

Iv used a LG Cookie and i prefer the Tocco Lite. I was considering the LG Cookie, but after using a friends one i thought of paying a little bit extra and get a Tocco Lite. Much more reliable, doesn't have any software issues like freezing or shutting off randomly as my friend complained about the LG Cookie having.

Does anyone know if the PINK one is sim free too?

Yes the pink will be sim-free. As stated, carphone warehouse send a sim-free phone along with a separate payg simcard.

How does the top up work is it sent via voucher ?

I think carphone warehouse top it up automatically for you when thy send you the phone with the payg simcard. Thats what they did last time when i bought a o2 payg phone.

About to order, thanks!

Yup, it shows on the receipt...

Samsung £79.95
£10 airtime credit £10.00
Rapid Delivery £0.00
Total: £89.95

you will have to wait a few days probs 8 days to see credit on sim Co's the scammers used the long distance regs to abuse eg they would use up £10 credit then send phone back within 7 days and get a full refund inc £10 stop up. Which is why you will not see your credit applied to sim until 8 days or longer
