    I'm thinking of getting a SE Z600 from e2save on a BT Mobile 100+
    contract at £9.99 per month for the first 6 months, £25 thereafter.

    So, what is the general opinion of the Z600, is it a good phone, any
    downsides?

    Also, how easy is it to unlock one, or do they come factory unlocked
    from bt mobile?

    TIA,

    Chris

    Rather large for a flip phone, see demo models in a local phone shop. I'd
    consider the K700i as an alternative.

    Hopefully someone else can answer that but I'd **guess** they're already
    unlocked.

    Based on reviews and specs I can't wait to get my hands on mine :-) Just
    ordered on orange despite knowing orange modified it to muck up the
    shortcuts.

    Excellent phone. Only two real disappointments for me:

    1. No EDGE (EGPRS).

    2. No support for wave audio (only MIDI).

    Plus the menus are a bit less intuitive than my old T39m.

    It's not all that much bigger than other clamshell phones, and is quite light
    for its size. I personally don't see that as a real issue.

    3. Lacks GSM 850 (a significant issue for Cingular and ATTWS in the USA)

    No, but then I don't keep track of that sort of thing.
