The phone is absolute rubbish.
I purchased in Shanghai, and within a week the battery was U/S.
Next trip to Shanghai I returned to the shop - they stated that the battery was damaged!! Nonetheless, I still had to purchase the new battery!!
Tried again with a new battery. Once home it worked OK for nearly 2 weeks. Now the re-charge doesn't fit into the phone, and just falls out!
On my way back to Shanghai next weekend - and will tell them what they can do with their Sciphone.
Avoid the Sciphone... waste of money!
