I have recently started using the VM800 mobile phone which was a Christmas present, though I did have a say in choosing the phone. I decided to stay with Virgin network as I have had no problems with them over the years I have been with them. I also wanted to keep the same number.
So far I have been very pleased with the phone. It does not have all the functionality and apps of a smart phone. It does, however, have the ability to connect to the internet which I have found useful. The phone came with a voucher for 6 months free internet access which was a nice bonus. I will probably not use the internet a lot after that but it is nice to have the option.
The menu and navigation of the phone is nice and easy to use. The graphics are clear and of good quality. The screen size is not all that big but I find it sufficient for my needs. There is a nice selection of options with respect to wallpapers, themes and ringtones. I have yet to make full use of all the phones functionalities.
The phones uses a qwerty keyboard and works much the same as a computer keyboard. The only problem I find sometimes is that the keys are a little on the small side.
All in all I am very happy with the phone and would recommend it to anybody who is looking for a Virgin phone with the above mentioned features.
