Hi

Has anyone looked at this phone? Can you tell me if the way i see the picture is right and there is no external screen... and therefore it is not possible to see who is calling/texting without opening the phone. I would have upgraded to this phone but not if I can't call screen anymore!

thanks
Trisha

A thread exists about it, it is correct that there is no external LCD but the swivel allows you to fold the phone 'closed' with the screen facing outwards. Obiviously it is not practical to do so if you are carrying it in your bag or pocket with keys etc. My advice is to visit a telecom store or retailer and ask if you can have a play to determine if it meets your needs

Most flip phones can be set to still be ringing when you open the flip so that you can see who is calling and choose to press TALK or END.
