Good find! Will probably attract a lot of negative comments for pointing this out but can sell to cex for £10 or £13 trade in value

Not worth it for the cash unless you're planning on buying 50 of the things but trade in value it mean's an instant 42.5% saving on anything you might want to buy at CEX.. which isn't too shabby

Actualy they do buy with £14 try to check the condition, if it is in mint condition then they will buy with £10 when the phone you gona sell them is brand new, so they will pay £14!

Thank you ordered 1

Ordered ..... Perfect festival phone

"Up to 8 hours standby time." unless this is a mistake does this mean this won't even last half a day?

I suspect the talk time and standby time have got reversed. 360 mins standby seems reasonable.

I went for the Zest2.

Bigger memory, longer call time and bluetooth - for £1.50 extra. Bargain.

Im not impressed with the standby time and talk time...Considering it s not a smart phone and it doesnt require lots of power to light up the screen/keep it s processor running.
Im looking for something solid like this but looking for something that can last more than 3 days.

Really? 6 hours stanby and 8 hours talk time...how does that work?

I just think it is a rubbish battery with rubbish length. I'd only want one of these if it could last through the majority of a 3-4 day festival.

I read it as 360 hours - DOH So unless it was all the wrong way round and hours instead of minutes you're right, crap battery which makes the phone pretty much US.

back in stock.

re battery life/hours...
T Mobile's own spec says:
"Talk time Up to 6 hours
"Stand-by time Approx. 20 days" [ie 480]

This listing has ended.

if only they added a battery that can last longer than my work hours , ill goto work and when i come home the battery is dead , they should of gotten better battery even if meant paying extra £1 or £2

got mine today but how do you turn it on? cant figure it out

When you get the phone:
1. Best to charge it first - ie put battery in and connect the ZTE USB mains charger. Display will show the battery being "inflated" until fully charged.
2. Insert a non TMobile SIM and turn on by LONG PRESSING the RED/OnOff button - should get wording that SIM not okay and can press a softkey (bottom left of display from memory) to go to an unlock entry screen.
3. Use the FREE ZTE calculator very kindly provided/ linked by MELIPONA above - ie enter the IMEI number (it's clearly printed on the box).
4. When it comes up with the results [you have to scroll down to find them] use the FIRST unlock sequence of numbers provided (it gives two, you only need the first it seems).
5. Once you've entered the digits and pressed OK should get an OK result and phone will power off.
6. Power on and your non-TMobile SIM should now be accepted & working.
