Can anyone recommend this phone? does anyone have this phone, what do you think of it?
we have just ordered 2 lol
the reviews are pretty good for this phone, we will just have to see what the battery usage is like first i think.

I have had mine since November and more than happy with it. My only gripe is that it does not have voice activation for the bluetooth.

Enjoy your Viewty.

how did you find the battery life miffysmate?

my sister got it...she didnt like it 1 bit and returned it!!! i would go for a nokia or sony...they keep much better value if u wanna sell in future

Tried one out in store, very nice looking and has some very nice features. Touch screen let it down for me. Have had 2 out of 3 touch sreens fail on me in recent months so I'm avoiding them now. As I found out instore they're just not accurate enough to do any real typing on. Got a Nokia E61 instead.

hmmm kind of mixed opinions, suppose ill just have to see lol

I don't have a problem with the battery life but then I don't use it as much as some people will do so not a true reflection.

have you seen how you text someone? thats one awesome feature and also the manual zoom again a great feature in my oppinon its a trendy looking digi cam with a phone bulit in , its very different from other phones which made me buy it and the touch screen is annoying at first but you get use to it and is rather easy to use.

oh yer lool, you get 2 free screen protectors in the box so thats sorted. the cameras amazing the fact you can zoom yourself is so much better and it has some sort of redish orange light i think thats for red eye reduction you understand what i mean by its a camera with a phone built in when u get it, erm nothing new you looking for anything in particular? navigating is very easy oh and the stylus that looks really cool supposed to like a pen. i dont go online but have some free time on it dont no exactly its on my price plan lol.

so you think i wont use it for going online? i think if i want to go online ill just use my laptop lol

errrm how long have you had yours?
did you find that texting was a bit slow to begin with? as with normal phones texting on T9 can be pretty quick
how do you play games and what ones do you get with the phone? like there isnt a joystick or keys so how do the games work lol
yeh i seen the stylus lol, its a shame they couldnt have intergrated it into a hole in the phone, shame that

errrrrrm ill think of more questions lol

lol no prbs, i think they wanted the pen to look stylish, i had when it first came out, theres one game on mine and to play it has touch sensitive grids as controls, and exactly i use my laptop to go online lol. you can change the settings for texting as you like but this way is much more faster youll notice the difference when u get it.

ive had it since last year lool.

It looks alright. But for the same price you could get an N95, which i think is an amazing phone. But my opinion so...
