General Comments
When I first got my phone, I was impressed with its size and the way it looked. Finished in like a titanium grey, it does look the business. The screen is a good size and colors are strong. The camera is pretty good quality if, like me, you are only gonna be taking pictures of people larkin about. Don't expect digital camera quality but it does the job fine for general snaps. Having previously owned Nokia phones, the Sharps menu seems somewhat alien. Don't get me wrong, it is clear and easy to use but everything is in a strange place. Writing text messages was a nightmare compared to the Nokia's because the command/edit butons are completely different.

There are a lot of options with the phone. You can take a picture and then set it as your wallpaper on the phone. The smaller screen on the outside of the phone is neat, displaying time, date, battery status, text alert and who's calling but, as mentioned in another review, when you flip open the phone, you have to press a button to answer the call anyway.

There is no data cable included and it is £30 seperately to download your saved photo's (of which it can save 80 of them). I am still trying to find out what exactly I can transfer with the infa red. Someone let me know!!

In general, I am impressed with the Sharp. It could be improved by including a data cable and giving you details of a decent website with games/tones on. Your mates will be jealous as you will have one of the GTI phones on the block.

hello, sorry to say but, even if you get the data cable, you will not be able to down/up-load pictures to your pc, you can only use the infrared AND the data-cable for using it as a modem to connect your pc to the internet. Don't worry though, you can still e-mail your pics to your pc and download your own pics from the internet. What is good is that you can send a MMS with three pics to save money e-mailing them, do NOT buy the cable for picture transfer, and dont expect a-lot from infrared.

Does anyone have problems with the GPRS/Internet connection feature on this mobile phone? The way one can connect to the Internet is to easy, it’s the same button used for other features and often I have found that I have connected to the net accidentally. On many occasions I have no idea how long I have been connected. Vodafone have announced that they will be charging customers for connecting to Vodafone Live via GPRS. I feel that this is a design error by Sharp and just wondered if anyone else experienced the same problems. Vodafone have said to me that they have had no complaints so far, yet everyone I know that has this phone complains of the same problem.
