    Just remembered something (doesn't happen too often)

    Texting...
    ...on a basic phone is a pain.
    What could be easier than voice texting on WP?

    I know some people want hardware buttons over that mysterious and delicate glass digitizer.
    Agreed. T9 can be a real pain if you're not thoroughly familiar with it.

    "insulting or potentially offensive"?

    Why were some of my posts deleted? I'd love to know what I,said that was out of bounds in any way.

    Dude, I generally agree with your decisions on closing posts, but "potentially offensive"? That could be as simple as wishing someone Merry Christmas these days.

    It's not Windows Phone on a cheap phone, it is a separate OS just designed nicely and because it will be a flat UI it will perform faster because there are no gradients to render. All it is is the current Nokia OS on that Nokia phone but ripping out 80% of the unneeded junk features leaving just call and text, this would also make it a lot faster and 100 times easier to use.
    I didn't say Windows Phone, I said Metro. If you're going to make an argument about gradients, why did you include colour? What's the purpose of the tiles? If you want a barebones interface, it wouldn't look like Windows Phone. It would look something like your home phone.

    S30 serves to provide features at a low price point. Your anecdote may be that only two features will ever be used, but clearly others find a use for other features. I fail to see how this will fare well against a competitor that has an alarm, stopwatch, timer, calculator and FM radio. Or are they supposed to spend advertising dollars to market this cheap phone with next to no profit margin?

    Live tiles. That's what he's saying. Though, I do agree. You want to keep alarm clock & calculator.
    You realise that all feature phones have indicators for the number of calls and messages, right?

    can only speak for what i have seen here in uk, but some politically correct white people, *thinking* that it causes offence to muslims in particular, ironically i dont think in the UK i have seen any muslims state this is of offence themselves, but its our councils and governement departments, and some employers that *think* they should say it can be of offence, to pre-empt any issues in the PC/claim culture era

    *sigh*

    but i agree, with your point, who the hell should be offended!

    You realise that this is largely nonsense, right? The stories you read in the nastier UK papers about some local council 'banning' Christmas are grossly exaggerated, misrepresented or made up. Don't you think it's unlikely the current UK government would 'ban' Christmas?

    this is off topic now, but just to say, i disagree that all of these stories are made up, what are you talking about!, i am not just talking exclusively about the christmas thing, and nor do i think they will ban it no, quite rightly, but several similar issues have gone to court tribunal, its not made up, sure some of the gutter press like to emphasize them, but i am afraid it happens, and if you believe that the dozens of reported cases of employees taking their employers to task is fiction then you are wrong. i mean just look at the numerous examples of airline crews/NHS staff being told they cant wear a crucifix item of jewellery, or face dismissal, where the same organization allowed staff to wear their religiously important attire when it wasn't christian etc. but ultimately its about perception, that these goings on are abundant, even if they aren't quite as much so in reality, peoples perceptions are that there is indeed a war on christian beliefs, perception is reality in the masses conscience, real or not.

    Strange question. I am talking about the alleged 'banning' of Christmas. Did you read my post?
    I wasn't writing about employment tribunals, but I don't believe there are 'dozens' of cases of the kind you describe.

    perception is reality in the masses conscience, real or not.
    Do you think facts are important? Or even relevant?

    Before typing this, did you say to yourself, "I wonder how many different people can I **** off with one post?"
    I have history on my side. When Constantine was in the process of converting Rome to Christianity, many of the existing pagan rituals were incorporated to bring in converts. If facts and history are offensive and **** people off, too bad I guess.

    The part I was talking about was all the derogatory names about all the groups you spoke about.

    Not cool at all.
