Hubby very happy with this replacement for old phone

 

Brought for hubby to replace his old CAT phone. Very happy with purchase. Would have been better if it wasn't all black - then he may be able to see it better when it was in a tool box

RUBBISH

 

Thought it may be an up to date phone.It is so awkward to use. Has no features what so ever. Can't personalise it in any way. Photos are the worst i have seen- blurred,hazy, blue in colour. I had phones in the early 2000s that had more on them & did...

Cat B25 Dual SIM

 

I bought this phone as it was advertised and sold as a dual sim card phone which was the reason to go for this make and model. However it isn't the dual sim model. So beware of this is what you require. This is the second time I've had this problem...

Durable

 

Very hard wearing, built to last..Ideal for a more mature person who just want a phone to make & receive calls. Ideal first phone for a busy dad at home or at work. Very easy to use, just put in sin and go. Have provisions for standard and micro Sims.

Great basic mobile phone

 

I wanted a simple mobile that sends and receives calls plus has texting facilities and this mobile fits the bill perfectly. I like its robustness and size. Fed up with fumbling about for small mobiles in my man bag! Great sturdy, drop proof and water...
