Sony Ericsson W380i Mobile Phone
I have wanted one of these phones for a while but found them to be expensive. I bought one on eBay for £40 and bought extras such as memory card, plastic casing which are really reasonable on eBay. I also unlocked the phone which is great because I can switch between networks.
I am really impressed with this phone. It has some quirky features such as "Gesture Control" where the user can wave their hand in front of the camera to silence the ringtone or alarm. There is also text to the front so you can see what song you are playing or who is calling/texting you.
I especially like the buttons to the top of the phone that let you control the music when the phone is closed.
I definitely prefer Sony Ericsson phones, they are easy to use and you can custom style them to your liking. I like the fact the W380i is a flip phone. I have it in black which I think suits both sexes and I have made it more feminine with the addition of a phone charm! The W380i is also available in silver and purple, both of which are striking.
I would definitely recommend this phone to others, it has all the modern features you need in a phone such as a decent camera, bluetooth and radio. I like the fact that you can attach your own head/earphones to the headset cord so you can use what you feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend eBay as the place to get a good priced W380i providing you check the seller's history and feedback.
So get one quick before they all go!!

Sony Ericsson W380i Cell Phone
I love this phone, I've had 4 different phones this year but none of them have been very good. This phone is excellent, it's slim fit's in pockets or your hand really comfortably. I love the flip phone style it's alot sleeker than the slide phones. This phone also has a display so you don't have to open it up to check the time or to check for text or missed calls. It also has a motion sensor so you can shut off the call by hand movement. It's also a walkman phone with great reception for the radio and the head phones fit really well into your ears so they're don't keep falling out. The camera is ok, not the best ever but then again if i want to take pictures i've got a great camera i use so that doesn't bother me at all. I'm keeping this phone. It's the best phone i've had and it wasn't expensive.

Sony ericsson w380i Mobile phone
One of sony ericssons small flip phones that packs a punch.
It boasts everything that it's big brothers can do yet the only thing i can say lets it down is the small screen.This has the hand gesture feature so if you dont want to answer a call just wave your hand over the front and it will cancel it (fantastic).
The front of the flip acts as a music station with the controls for the walkman feature(proof thet son a mobile is all we need in life.The memory can be expanded with a m2 memory card up to 2gb so ample music and pictures can be stored.A very good phone overall pity there is too many to choose from or this could have been one of thier popular ones.8/10 from me and well recommended to anyone for a well practicable phone.

Excellent value for money
My last phone, an LG, just stopped working after 6 months, so I needed a replacement. I wanted a phone that would be compatible with Orange, and I wanted a clamshell design. This is one of only two clamshell phones that Orange seem to support, the other being a Nokia.
When I received the phone I was very happy. It is quite stylish and a little unusual looking. The screen is very clear, and the menus are quick to respond and easy to use. Writing an SMS is straightforward, there is no lag after pressing each key like my old LG. It comes with half a gigabyte of memory, so I can stick lots of tunes on it. The walkman mode is cool, and easy to access using the external "buttons" that are actually just part of the case.
One of the smartest things is the display on the outside, that glows *through* the case when the phone is closed. I would highly recommend this handset to anyone.

A great phone!
Firstly, I am not a phoneophile and don't let the things rule my life, but the w380i is a neat phone, robust and well put together. I particularly like and much prefer clam phones (as the screen is protected when not in use) and they seem to be becoming rarer, which I find surprising. A great feature is the external buttons for music control, and the external display is aneat touch too, though I understand that this is the most likely item to fail on these phones. I had an excellent buy from an exemplary ebayer (as the vast majority are!) and I have not seen a phone that I would purchase in preference, well not in anywhwere near the same price bracket! Well satisfied with an excellent
