    I am interested in getting this phone as part of a good one year Vodafone
    package. Are there any views on it in this news group?
    TIA

    All depends on what you need in a mobile-phone.

    The 3510i is a pretty cheap phone these days, and it's usually found
    offered on PAYG rather than contract. There are better specified (more
    expensive) handsets to be had for *free* on a one year pay-monthly Voda
    contract

    Thanks for that. My needs are quite basic and the package looked good
    value at 17.50 a month (but with 6 months rebated in two instalments, one
    of three months after three months and the other of three months after nine
    months). So the net cost per month over the year would be 8.50. It
    provides:

    1) 1000 off peak minutes
    2) 6 of SMS/MMS/data per month

    I *was* gonna get it, but then seen the Nokia 3200. I was put off by the
    keypad of the 3200, but too many people have judged the keypad before using
    it. I can still out-text my friends after having it only a week, learning
    the new layout takes hours...not days. The 3200 is just the Swiss army knife
    of colour, entry level Nokia's, it has the lot (camera, FM radio, 16 chord
    polyphonics [****s on 7210 and 7250's 4 chord], it even has a torch!!! I'm
    so glad I got this over the 3510i. My mate had a 3510i and he says it's not
    very durable, it squeaks when held and the keypad feels 'tacky'. Put the
    small few /$'s extra in for the 3200, I would. (or even the 3100, both can
    be picked up at a good price already)

    WTF...A torch !?!?...BTW is it actually any good as a mobile-phone ? i.e.
    making and receiving phonecalls. And what's the battery life like ?

    Another thing with the 3200. It's got a camera, so how do you transfer the
    photos to the PC ? This thing ain't got iRDA or Bluetooth, you MUST *buy*
    the optional extra DKU-5 cable...stupid or what ?

    It does have infrared. Sending receiving pictures/ringtones to/from a pc is
    a breeze.

    HTH,

    Great reception. Battery life is OK, there is better of course.....250hrs
    standby/4hrs talk. It's a great phone!
