    HELP touch screen phone advice needed

    my 12yr old son has decided he would like a touch screen phone for xmas, he would like the nokia 5800 music express like his uncle but i would want and unlocked one so he can keep his orange sim. Which would cost about £200, and the reviews i've read haven't been all that good. He also mentioned the lg viewty, can anyone give me any advice about either or recommend another, he doesn't want the lg cookie as i tried to steer him to this one but is having none of it. Has to be on payg.

    Samsung Tocco lite?

    Try the Nokia 5530. Its very similar to the 5800 but without 3g. Carphone warehouse have it for around £100.

    i use the 5800 as my main phone and i have to say its the best phone iv ever had. I love all the features and have no problems with it. Recently there was an offer for this phone for about £120 with some of the stores in the Littlewood group (i think it was very). Im not sure if the offer is still on.

    But if you do find the phone at a good price, but it is locked to a network, most phone shops would do it for £10 - well thats what i was quoted at all the small stores near me.

    have the 5530 worse phone ive ever had broke within 2 days and is broke now again

    Get him the samsung tocco ultra edition. will do all the tricks.

    i got the 5800 the other day from littlewoods for 129, one of the best phones ive ever had.

    No no no not the viewty such a god awful phone it barely works, my friend … No no no not the viewty such a god awful phone it barely works, my friend has one it's slow and constantly crashes, you'll find alot of people have that problem, and the signal and battery is useless.


    Sorry got to disagree with you.
    My son has this on the 3 network and it's a great little phone for the money.
    Its about 2 months old and has yet to crash ( now i've done it )
    Would have no qualms about recommending this phone.

    Giving a 12 year old a 200 pound phone just dosn't seem right, I would go for the cheapest possible as at that age I dont think he needs 1of the top of the range phones that is out.


    I would say viewty, cookie or a tocco.

    Totally agree. Its just setting a 12 year old up to get mugged at school imho.

    Many thanks to everyone for there advice and opinions. I don't want him to have a £200 phone but that is what he has asked for, however think i will look in to the samsung tocco.

    Take a look at the Orange Vegas great phone IMHO

    Cant agree more.

    My girls have had top-of-the-range phones and they just lose them.

    Better just to have summin functional that wont cost the earth when you have to replace it xxx
