Ok, so not the cheapest feature phone you can get, but 10% off previous Argos price and cheaper than elsewhere - all in all, pretty good considering it's dual SIM. Some good reviews (based on what it is and does - note, no 3 support), with fun Minion sounds. Have reserved to pick up today for daughter who now walks to school with friends. Free delivery too if not in stock locally.

It's actually fairly slim, so no-one will know!

Baaa-Naaaa-Naaaahh!

Giving a kid a dual sim phone is just asking for trouble. One sim for family and one sim for when they're moonlighting as a Werewolf/Vampire? X)

Just ordered for myself, I mean our lil one, for Xmas TYVM

What's the battery life like on these ???

Hmmm I guess if Tarquin and Jacasta aren't being taken to school in the SUV, well it is 56 yards from ones home, then it might be problem, but only if their primary iphone 6's went faulty and Jeeves wasn't able to get a spare sorted out before school.

Ne naw ne naw ne naw.

Why on earth would those who would like this kind of phone ( I'm guessing 6 year olds) need dual sims?

And I do miss the days when you could only have 100 contacts on a phone, not very long ago but feels like a different age.

Smartphone 2-3 Days hahaha that's only left on standby doing nothing, vast majority need a nightly charge and MANY need a teatime top up.....

I'm at a loss too but I cant think of any other demographic that a minion phone would be designed for. Maybe it's like Field of Dreams, build it and they will buy it!

They could run?

And what's the betting that this will just be "so uncool" in 3 months time that they'll want a new one?

D&G Motorola RAZR, anyone?

Well, the dual SIM, expandable memory and battery life certainly are an upgrade! Don't think the screen is quite "retina" grade, though...

You mean it's cool now? I thought I was more on the side of embarrassing parent by giving my daughter this.

Does anyone know, if I get this, can I send text messages to multiple people? Like 30 at a time?

Gonna take a gamble hoping I can send texts to multiple ppl

Also anyone got a catalogue number? Argos site is crap

Argos no. 410/9897

I collected but it's in a blister type package so can't open it prior to giving to daughter, so can't comment on group texts. Need to sort a SIM card (or 2!) now.

Cheers mate off to Kensington high st to collect one. It's a second phone for my Union stuff I am so fed up with the current one dying after half a day so figured back to basics !!

Fingers crossed for the group texts some phones support it some don't it seems. It's really important for me for when texting 50 members at once

Not sure if the dual sim is going to be useful to me but doesn't matter if not.

Can anyone confirm if you need to do an initial 24 hr charge still like the old days ???

It has a lithium ion battery, so should have some charge and be safe to use, then do full charge later.

I think I'm going to go for the 7 day pack EE SIM: hotukdeals.com/dea…941
