    Hi all,

    Just wondering what your opinion is of going from a c550 spv to a SE k750i? I'm pretty fed up of the awful boot time of my phone and to be honest all I use it for is to text talk and take pictures (which it doesn't do very well).

    Is the K750i still a semi reasonable phone as they are cheap now new from orange?

    Cheers for any info:)

    As another thought, does the joystick still break on these?

    dont turn the phone off maybe? that normally solves any issue with boot time. oh and yeah, k750i joysticks are crap. I cant see how its a good move in any way what so ever.

    I went from SPV c500 to k750i. Much better for my use. SPV was slow, buzzed during calls, crashed, some simple user-friendly features were missing or crap.

    Haven't looked back. Evidently didn't need a smartphone.

    I would possibly hold off for the k800i though - it's supposedly being released on Orange sometime in July.

    Far, far, far better phone. I hated my C550, which I bought at release and sent back after 6 days.

    The camera is miles better, the keys are nicer for text input, and the menu system actually makes sence :)

    You'll not regret the move ;)

    Thanks for the info guys, just hope the joystick doesn't go on it? I cant get the k800i mate, pay as you go only for me! I take it FMA is the pc app of choice for the k750i?
