Telstra F850

 

The Telstra F850 offers a relatively inexpensive way to jump aboard the carrier's Next G platform, as long as you don't mind travelling in the slow lane.

Had my ZTE for 23 months worked fine. Error message popped up one day. Couldn't use it. Contacted ZTE Australia, who told me to send it to them. Within a week they had expressed posted a brand new one back to me. Great company! Never had any other...

Good mobile. Does what I need it to do. Make phone calls, music, photos, video calls. Battery life is excellent

I hate the unchangable 24 hour time format

What a cheap and nasty piece of crap. And fancy telstra being stupid enough to supply this to us. Even worse is the fact that I was conned into signing up for it.

It's a mobile telephone...You make calls from it without being tied to the wall by an electrical/'phone cord

Everything else...Especially the predictive text (The only other thing I could be bothered to use this 'phone for.)

It works - as long as I recharge it every 12 hours unless you try to watch video. After 30 minutes of watching videos, the phone is down to 1 bar.

Simple to use ; Works at a simple level ; On a $20 per month - with $20 free calls included per month plan - very cheap

Poor battery life ; Difficult to use features like emailing photos ; Not very sturdy ; Had to exchange phone within a day of setting it up ; Not good coverage in country areas ; Still got 4 months left on 24 month contract
