    Default Want a Simple Phone?

    As in one that makes and receives calls and nothing esle?

    John's Phone

    Spotted it on ComputerActive this week and thought it was almost genius!

    No camera
    No phonebook (well, a paper one in a slot on the back of the phone!)
    No bluetooth
    No SMS or MMS
    No menu's
    No internet
    No apps

    Nothing except the ability to make a call and receive a call. And all for 80 euro's (~ £68) and it is unlocked!

    Got to love the simple ideas! Oh, and it says the battery lasts up to 3 weeks!! lol (have to charge my X10 Mini daily!)

    lol - If you need a phone to impress a lass then heaven help you!! Besides, it would be a good way to get a cheap giggle!

    So many people just want to make or receive a call, nothing else!

    I dont need a phone to impress a lass trust me! Lol, But i was jus thinking the otha way round... Eg if a bird pulled this out to write my numba down (with the phonebook stuck on back!) i would think it was abit strange! And im not a shallow person! Lol, We are in 2010! People are very judgemental these days! I really like some basic phones... Remember nokia 8310 etc... Brilliant, but a fone wi no fone book! I mean c'mon that is too too too basic!!!

    They dont make slick little handsets like that anymore, wish they did! I still use 8310 now as a spare etc, love it! Imagine a phone like 8210/8310, with a colour screen and better internal memory! Wud still have one now as a main phone! Nowadays its all massive smart touch screen phones that all look same more or less! I got iphone as its my only inrernet source. Nokia shud go back in time and do anotha hanset like 8210 but with a modern twist!

    Lmao.

    Best phones I've owned have been my old Motorola V3 and C350, but more recently my old Nokia E71. That went through hell and back. Off the roof of the car at 30 or 40, used as a football, used as a torch, someone tossed it as hard as possible at a wall and everything still works perfectly. The outer case is bashed to hell and the camera cover is scratched, two cracks on the plastic over the screen too but still works better than my iPhone. Always has a better signal and after everything, even the sat nav still works. Think I'm going to switch back to it. No way in hell an iPhone etc would be able to stand up to that.

    Loved my old Nokia 3310 and my BT Genie phone, it was tiny at the time but probably huge in comparison to todays standards.
