haha cheers i guess :P how come its so good? ive read reviews but most are going to be bias so rather have genuine people tell me

It takes the phrase getting bang for your buck to a new level. Hardware wise it's almost an insult as to how it's under £100! Told my sister to get one instead of blackberry. Be nice if she gets an oled screen but I'm sure she won't notice TFT haha.

cheers choc

I got one for Christmas and it looks amazing.

I'm a member of modaco (from rooting a Vega tablet) and used those same links in the first post to unlock it for O2 really easily. I'm now debating installing one of the Modaco custom roms.

Well the first few days it worked fine then my sim card went wrong. Three replaced it and it has been fine ever since.

only neg is the battery life but that is the case for all these types of mobiles.

When this happens does the "back" button flash? Wife's does that and its not been rooted or unlocked (yet) .......so in other words it may not be connected to your modding of the phone.

Anyone got a recommendation for a pay-as-you-go tariff for low levels of use? was thinking about the Asda mobile pay as you go.....

I stuck on advanced task killer and turned off all the stuff I don't use and also used the power widget to turn off gps and noticed a fair jump in battery life.
