The 575 has Bluetooth which enables it to communicate with other Bluetooth devices (such as a Bluetooth handsfree kit) and it has Wi-Fi which means that it can connect to your home network or public Wi-Fi hotspots such as those available in many coffee shops, cafes or hotels.
The Vodafone 575 has an FM radio and an MP3 player. It comes with Facebook and Twitter pre-loaded and, with its Yahoo! App, it can handle your emails whilst on the go. It also supports web surfing via its Opera Mini browser, although it does not have 3G, a feature available on many of its competitors.
At around £35, this phone offers more than most the basic handsets, however its lack of 3G means that its usefulness as a social media device is somewhat limited. It still, however, represents excellent value for the money and is a good compromise between performance and cost.
