Managed to find two NEW ones!
I have had 2 of these since late 2010 (both 'second hand me downs') LOVE THEM! Sadly, the battery is starting to dissipate its charge in approx 2 days so I started hunting for another or a replacement battery. The phone gods must be looking out for me as I have managed to find 2 x NEW in box approx 10 mins away from home. I am off to pick up my 2 NEW friends!
Great little phone with lots of features
Just bought this phone (BNIB) on eBay as a discontinued model after reviews here and thought I'd post my thoughts on this phone. Because I was aware of other people accidentally pressing the Bigpond/Foxtel buttons I was careful not to do this, also having a SIM with no credit provided a safety net until I got used to the phone and since I've loaded some credit on the SIM I haven't bumped the BG&F buttons, it's just something you get used to.
I also have an iPhone and much prefer this phone, then again I don't use the iPhone to connect to...the internet...preferring to use a computer for surfing. Battery life is fantastic and I love being able to download free ringtones. I love the small physical size of this phone, it's so easy to slip into your bra and remain invisible...can't do that with an iPhone. It's the first slide phone I've owned and really like this feature. Time will tell how robust it is but so far I'm really happy...got it for a good price too! I would really like to remove the BigPond and Foxtel capability as I don't use either, just have to spend time and see if I can do this sometime. Small physical size BigPond and Foxtel buttons
A mobile that actually does what it promises!
The best Mobile I have ever owned. I have had 32 in my lifetime. Slider action. Light weight. Fits in your pocket easily.
Reliable. Great sensitivity(range).
I've had this phone for just over 12 months. I keep hitting the wrong buttons as they are so close. I loathe the fact that I am so often taken to the web when doing just this! All I want is a basic phone as I don't want to mess round with such a tiny phone (and wouldn't bothger with bigger ones either) to connect to the internet. I use my pc's for that. Dreadful process to follow to upload photos to pc!! Menus extremely user unfriendly!!! Can't work out how to save phone numbers to my pc... Have tried the manual and as many of the wretched menu options as possible...
It is ok for talking
Everything else!! When you pick it up it so often starts connecting to the internet...

Questions & Answers
How do I upload photos to computer?
Haven't tried because I don't use the camera feature but would try using the USB cable...if the photos are stored on a card then you could also try removing that from the phone and insert into a card reader.
Hope this helps?
