    The problem is young children don't want cheap phone, at least smart phone.

    Cheap phone only the elders use now :p

      Not limited to young children. I carry around a Nokia 110, which is pretty much this. Dual sim and battery lasts almost a week. As compared to my HTC Velocity (on a data only sim) which barely lasts a day.

      Dual Sim + a long battery life is still very desirable.

        These type are good for emergency only phones. Put one in the car turned off. Or for calls and small amounts of sms. I picked up 5 cheapies for under $10 each with $30 credit each and then used 4 as spare batteries.

    I would support kspec's comment. I bought two at the last time it was sold with the debut of AldiMobile.

    My unit:
    1) turns off when it wants to. Even with good battery and full power.
    2) the earpiece (audio) is horrible.
    3) when I take/make a call, sometimes audio fades in-out
    4) reception is poor - drops calls.

    It is not a smart phone. It's a basic phone. The ringing tone is horrible, can't change much.
    But one thing for sure, if you leave it around - it comes back to you coz no one wants it. People are so keen to return the phone to you. I use it and the kids laugh at me…

    Even if you keep it as an emergency phone, I bet the battery won't last that long. Better to use whatever older model phone (eg. Nokia) for that.
    Build quality is poor.

      I still buy Nokia if I wanted a phone that have good battery life & easy to find replacement(battery)

    Are the 2 SIM cards active at the same time? I am looking for 3 phones for SMS testing of Telstra, Optus and Vodafone and figure that a dual SIM phone that this would save me buying a third. Also what frequencies does it support?

      I don't know what other people were expecting but I was expecting a cheap phone and that's what I got. It works fine.
      I don't have any problems with audio fading, reception or it switching itself off. I agree that the audio is pretty ordinary. I would have happily paid another 5 bucks if they had put in a better speaker. It's not great in bright light but then not many phones are. Keypad is a bit ordinary as well. Battery life is good but doesn't seem to be as good as when I first got it.
      I have two SIMS and both are active at the same time. I run a Telstra SIM and an Aldimobile SIM and get good reception. The outdoor ring tone setting is loud which I really like.

    Anyone know what is the band this phone uses. Will it work in Europe for travel if I buy a local sim card ?
