My wife had her phone stolen on the London underground today - lifted from her bag while she read the paper.
She's debating which phone to get as a replacement - must be a clamshell, and the smaller the better. Lights and stripes not an issue, she doesn't care about cameras, MP3 players, etc., but it must be Tri-band.
Any recommendations? Apparently I'm hopeless when it comes to advice in this area.
Just bought a Sony Ericsson W300i. It's clamshell phone and Quadband. Although you say your wife doesn't need features it has many features included for a very reasonable price. Got mine from click here
I got a new phone recently 'cos it was for free (I thought) through O2. Did not want camera but you can't get one without nowadays. Got Sony Ericsson 800i. Very good but..........had to increase monthly payment to use 3G and O2 does not offer proper internet access, just what they want you to have which is limited. I'd love to have full internet access (enjoying my time on the PCA forums??).
I have the Motorola KRZR. It is small neat and beautifully finished,has a few bells and whistles i never use but i find it easy to use as a phone or texting machine. Mrs Sidecar likes hers but has complained on occasion that it tends to get lost in the bowels of her Tardis(sorry handbag). click here
A friend of mine recently had a minor road accident (not his fault). He took photograps of the scene using his phone....the other person denied the accident was her fault! He sent the photos to his Insurer and they were able to get his claim paid by the other party.
