    Hi

    My elderly father is after a phone with a decent camera as his old digi cam is playing up. He only wants a phone for Talking, texting and a camera. He won't use any Internet (think his plan doesn't have any in fact). So a few questions please.

    • can you switch off the Internet? On my iPhone 5 there's a setting to disable mobile data

    • On the keyboard does it work in portrait and landscape, and does it have an option of qwerty and a normal old style ABC, DEF etc, I know the Sony Xperia's do.

    • Is it easy to use? I like the idea that on the home screen I could just put large tiles for Text, Phone and a camera shortcut?

    • Does it have a dedicated camera button? Can you start the camera app by holding it down?

    • What is the camera like truthfully please as this is the main reason for new phone, no blurry shots, decent pics, easy to use?

    • Dis you buy new? How old is it? Any warranty left? Any receipt etc?

    • Was it officially unlocked by a network, was it a contract phone?

    Sorry for the numerous questions..!...

    Thanks. If you could find receipt as HTC's in UK have a 2 year warranty, just busy trying to check if its transferable.

    Is it in mint condition? Screen no scratches on, body mark free, never dropped, no scrapes etc?

    Can you screenshot or take pic of the non standard keyboard thing, does it work in portrait and landscape for that option?

    Can you have a file of a person on the home screen to directly call or text?

    I also live in S/S so could save on P+P although Collect+ or RMSD is fine. Not to discourage you but the current asking would be too much at mo, they were new for £80 in Oct last year to, contacting Dad to see what he thinks

    Cheers

    I can confirm the phone is in great condition. There is a feint slight mark on the bottom left but other than that I've looked after it. There are no screen scratches and the body is completely mark free.

    Yes you can pin a contact to the home screen to call directly.

    The keyboard available based on the UK region setting on Windows phone is only a standard qwerty that can be used in both horizontal and vertical depending on the phone orientation.

    I've done some digging amongst my emails and the only thing I can find from my order on phones for you is order confirmation that I received from phones4u.

    I think the price you quoted is wrong. This might have been for a HTC Mozart which is similar. Also maybe that was for a valid PAYG upgrade. If you were to pay new it was over £100 at the time.

    On the basis that this is in great condition I am willing to take £70 for it for a fellow member from the NE. A recent one on here went for £60 but mine is in much better condition.

    http://m.hotukdeals.com/deals/htc-radar-payg-upgrade-phones4u-store-79-95-1327808?

    That was then obviously but not available now, although some stores may have some left. The upgrade price for PAYG can be done with a free SIM if necessary though so I'd never pay for a SIM free price, only for a PAYG upgrade.

    What's the mark? On the screen? Can you take a pic? Confused as you say not on screen or body

    Ah so there's no ABC keyboard only qwerty?

    I'd need to contact HTC with the serial (did this with my old HTC phone and they can tell you warranty status)

    Can't be done with free sim as the payg sim would have had to be active for 6 months, regularly used for calls and topped up. I know this is fact as I work in the trade.

    I have said there are no marks on the screen. Its very feint and doesn't show up on photos. The mark is on the removeable cover for the sim slot.

    Windows 7 doesn't offer abc keyboard only qwerty.

    Please bear in mind I have used this phone daily since purchase. Just being honest.

    Ok thanks again for your responses. We've been looking at phones recently and the Sony Tipo is available for £85, HTC Salsa for £69, Nokia Asha £78. These are brand new from Asda.

    I'm not sure for the difference he'll go for it. Anymore leeway on price? £55 inc P+P? If warranty checks out with HTC ok?

    Too low for me. Phones you have quoted are all lower spec than the radar. As i mentioned earlier one went on here earlier for £60 in poorer condition.

    I would accept £70.

    Yeh I understand that but as I say spec doesn't really matter for him, all have the same camera as yours which is what he wants.

    Thanks

    You say spec doesn't matter but you want the same camera? The phones you quoted do not have the same camera as the htc radar.

    If you think otherwise then please go and buy one of the aforementioned handsets.

    Anyone else before I think about eBay?

    They are 5MP on the asha and Salsa, the same as ghe radar, that is what I meant. As I say he won't use apps and stuff, he doesn't have Internet. The reason I looked was Windows phone looks easy to use, whereby I'm trying to keep him away from Android as its a bit complicated for him.

    Can goto £60 delivered before I look in the shops
    Cheers

    I'm not in this to compare every detail. He wanted a decent camera this and the Salsa, Tipo, Asha have one.

    I've offered over what I can really, explained what we needed if offer no good then GLWS.

    Cheers
