Comment: I have had more problems with this phone than the sum total combined of all other phones that I have owned for the past 15 years. I only wish that I could give it a 0 star rating.

This is the email that I had to send to Vodafone about this phone.

I recently received an upgrade(!) to a Nokia C5-03. I can only assume that I am being used to test this phone before Nokia decide not to make any more of them, in fact based on this phone Nokia should stop making any more mobile phones.

This phone is completely and utterly unfit for purpose.

Here is a list of the problems that I am aware of and I don't even use most of the features on the phone and don't even use the phone that much because it is so awful to use(when it does actually work).

Firstly, when I was advised to take this phone I was told that the camera had a flash, it does not have a flash.

I am constantly being reminded that the memory is low on the phone even after deleting all of the emails on the phone. This takes forever because the feature does not work properly, emails simply do not delete or just reappear after they have been deleted. It beeps repetitively saying that the emails cannot be deleted without giving a reason or it just stops deleting them and gets stuck. I have nothing else stored in the phone memory, therefore the internal phone memory is not large enough to accomodate the factory installed software / updates.

The alarm clock will not switch off when the alarm is ringing, the only way to get rid of it is to use sleep and then to go into alarms and turn off the alarm.

Periodically the phone screen just randomly turns white and also the orientation just changes even when the phone is not moved.

The touch screen is as reactive as a lump of steel, even when using a stylus which is pretty much essential. More often than not even if you manage to press the right icon and the phone reacts it will not actually do the required command. I miss phone calls often just because the stupid thing will not react.

The top of the screen is already faded.

On top of the actual faults with the phone it is stunningly user unfriendly and Nokia REALLY need to do something about their multitudes of accounts / log ins / websites. If I want to manage my phone I want one website and one log in.

Ideally instructions should not be needed with a new phone but this phone is so useless it really should come with instructions(and an apology) because the online help seems to be woefully inadequate.
