What you do get is a nifty plastic tabletop phone holder into which the charger clips. The keypad includes icon-labelled buttons for Home, Contacts and messages/missed calls (rather too much on that one, we think, especially as its Home which blinks if you have a missed call). And the Home screen has nice clear characters – big ones for the current time, plus an indication of signal strength, battery life and current volume setting.
It’s probably the most stylish of the Simply series, though style obviously isn’t a big consideration here (it looks a bit like the Motorola ROKR E1). The software and user interface generally work to spec – not too much to get wrong, everything works as advertised, and it does the basics well (good reception, too).
Makes and takes calls, sends and receives texts. What more could
