This phone comes in a dual SIM version (called the Alcatel 1030D) that enables you to pop in two SIM cards at once and choose the one you want to use. This comes in handy if you are planning to use your phone abroad extensively or want to keep your business and personal calls separate.
The Alcatel 1030 comes with an FM radio, a basic MP3 player and the battery will last for up to 10 days between charges (or 7 hours of continuous use). The advantage of the clamshell design is twofold.
1. It makes it more difficult to 'pocket dial' one of your contacts.
2. Closing the lid will automatically end your current phone call.
Both of these features could help prevent you from wasting your valuable credit unnecessarily.
Alcatel's 10.30 is a solidly built, basic flip phone and, at around £15, would make a very good 'second' phone for festivals, holidays or younger family members.
