  • guys can i have instagram viber and skype on t mobile move balance? please answer me

  • Its a nice phone. I'm using it for 1 year maybe. Excelent, easy to use, simple and has everything i need. I use Launcher Pro instead of the stock Huawei Launcher and its smooth. No program crashes, no lag and it has perfect battery stand. The only thing is that it doesn't have multitouch, so you won't be able to play some games from the market. That's not an important thing for me, cause i don't play often, but i gotta say its superb phone. 10/10 from me!

  • Hello,this phone is great but i have problem with the wi fi ,it can't connect with my pc,why is it that? Can someone help me.Thanksss

  • Hello if this phone supported Skype video chat thanks ."D

  • Hi all, i have problem with my move balance, it cant switch on, when i put in charging its charging but neither switching on. Please help. Thanks.

  • Does this Phone have Gorilla glass screen?

  • and what did you do?

  • Can I plat hd games on this phone? Like need for speed, games from gameloft... becouse its not a multi touch phone so... is it a problem and is there some kind of solution for that problem..tnx bye bye :) :)

  • I've already tried that, but than it's the other way around. When I receive SMS it shows the name of the contact, and it's ok. But when it calls it doesn't show the contact's name, just the number in regular format, without ++xxx. So I have to save a contact's number in both formats so that it shows the name in both, SMS and call, but it's like two different numbers of the same contact... It's annoying... Thanks anyway :) If someone else has a solution, please do tell :) Everything else about the phone is great. I'm using it for 4 months and it's really a great deal for the money :)

  • how can I make screenshot

  • i have this phone more than 6 months and i m satisfied great battery stand for big screen phone, only i dont want is the phone memmory so you must root the phose so you can delete some unused apps good luck

  • I can't connect to my PC wi-fi hot spot. Not found it. I tried with other phones, it works, they can connect to PC wi-fi hot spot.

  • I will write you a way that I root-briefed phone for 1 minute. The first to point out that the root-retrying the phone lose factory warranty   First, do the following 8 steps:   First The dialer in the following type: * # * # 2846579 # * # * and open up a hidden menu   Second Select ProjectMenu and 3.Backround settings, and second Log settings, and swich Log on and select LOG, then Confirm.   Third Select the Log level settings, and then from the list VERBOSE and Confirm.   4th Click back to return to the previous menu and press 4.Usb port settings, and then the Manufacturer mode.   5th Reseturajte phone to the new features work.   6th Remove the program Superoneclick 2.3.3 and unzip it.   7th Start the program SuperOneClick but as an administrator (Run as administrator, must!)   8th Connect your Huawei and click Root, root-to ovals and then Root Shell   And it is to have the phone's root-to-date, you can do all that and you lose the factory warranty. sorry for my bad english

  • why not work camera in skype ????

  • I have this phone for 1 mount and what can I say worth for the money bay the way I didnt pay any money on a contract... so everithing works perfectly I used to have T-mobile Pulse and Im very plesent of HUAWEI just look HUAWEI cite to see the next HUAWEI phones great for the company also great for us cheap and qualitu phones it Doesn't Matter that is a chinees phone everything is made there so people dont daubt buy this phone u won't be disapointed

  • Can somebody tell me how i can unlock this phone?

  • Comes with A LOT preinstalled useless apps that can't be uninstalled ("thank you" T-Mobile) thus the low user memory left free. Definitely needs flashing! Also there is NO MULTITOUCH. Two thumbs up for the battery: mine last 4-5 days!

  • Guys can you tell me what I heve to do? bcz my move balance phone cames freezing 1 time in 3 days...should I take a program or ?

  • thank u a lottttttttttttt

  • well guys,its done deal,tnx to all of you for your advices,i just bought it finally i decided to bought the huawei phone,the crucial fact to change my mind was the size guys(wilsdfire s and samsung ACE)look like child toys in front of balance so i decide to take this one first impressions:quite solid and incredible touch good call quality and yes there is an fm radio,thats it tnx all for your opinions

  • I just bought it from T-mobile MK... I'm wondering if there is an update to 2.3.6 or 2.3.7 or whatever, where can I find the update? T-mobile or Huawei?

  • First of all you people mutilated the english language like no one before -.- Second, the phone is excellent, its stock HUAWEI launcher is bugged but you can download Launcher Pro which fixes all the issues while retaining the full functionality of the stock launcher. Also people keep mentioning that their device keeps freezing... Luckily I haven't had problems of that kind (probably because i switched to a different launcher). It works with the modified flash player for armv6 and armv7 devices perfectly but if you plan on playing flash content only on youtube use the stock youtube app because flash is known as a huge battery drainer. On further note the battery is excellent and it lasts a few days on full brightness while playing games and using wifi frequently. The design and functionality is great and well worth the money. The main selling point of this phone would be it's screen resolution and pixel density. The screen quality surpasses that of my iPhone 3gs by a long shot and the viewing angles are pretty good. If you're planing on buying this phone go for it :D

  • Nikola I Use this Phone about 1 Mounth ( I buy it from T-Mobile Macedonia) and I Can tell you trully that Speed of system is Fast and touch is very Good.

  • i just bought it today and it already froze once and quit one download.It's a great value for the money on paper but in practice it's incredibly , astonishingly buggy.

  • Go with T-Mobile Move Balance.Before you write anything tell US DID you Ever Use This Phones ? Or You Imagine Something?

  • i would like to know does it works with SKYPE also and does it has camera on front

  • This mobile phone looks, feels and has much better resolution than ace and wildfire... And by resolution, I mean that everything looks great on the screen, menus, games, videos. On the other hand this phone has a problem with freezing.. I get at least one or two freezes on daily basis. I hope that this will be repaired in a software upgrade. I wouldn't recommend Ace or Wildfire because of their inferior screen. Everything is pixelated and Move Balance has much more responseful touch, but no MULTITOUCH :S

  • Go with the Wildfire S.

  • well if you can afford any of the two like the wildfire and the ace well buy one... the processors are newer arm11( I don't know about are they powerful then the armv6 cos they both have 800MHz ) and support flash player.. on the other site this phone have better resolution then the galaxy and the htc.. and it has bigger screen size... if i have to choose between the htc wildfire s and the samsung galaxy ace I would choose htc because i think it is more respected and trustful firm then the samsung... but even if you chose the balance you won't make a mistake

  • Very good smartphone.I use it for 1 mounth and I dont have any proplems whit him.The Phones work perfectly with any aplication. I use some aplication from Android Market and everything is go like a sharm (Speaker Shake,UnKeyLocker,Total Call Lite (Shake2Call),Hand in Glove,PocketSensor,Fix Broken Power Button).I recomend to bay.

  • ive read in previous comments that doesent support multitouch,so i wonder hows possible that android 2.3.5(gingerbread) dosent support multitouch,my provider offers me this cheap android for 0$ so im really interested to get this phone,also i doubt between wildfire S ,Galaxy Ace and this huawei phone any suggestions welcome

  • I have this phone and I can say that is absolutely great..the processing power isn't the greatest but with 800 MHz it is good for running games like angry birds, nfs shift, and asphalt 5. The touch screen is really good and I can say that is as good as on the iphone 4 but it doesn't support multitouch of any kind so that is a little sad if you are an multitouch enthusiast :D.. although you can't download flash player from the android market, cos the armv6 processor isn't supported you can find a cracked version on the net witch doesn't work as smooth as the real deal but it does its job and you can play flash games on miniclip Et cetera. and watch videos on the sites you open... download opera( not opera mini) and you will have a blast of internet experience.. the wifi has a big range and the gps is really fine, and for last the battery is good as it can actually be (have in mind that we are talking about a smart phone and not some cheap black and white screen phone ) and you can spend a good 1-2 hours on internet a day and it can last 2-3 days at least If you are thinking to buy it, my advice is to do that cos in that price range is in sure better then the x8, samsung galaxy mini and the lg optimus one.. you won't regret that decision P.S. the battery doesn't come of so if it freeze and wont do any thing.. to restart the phone click the unlock button for 10 second and if it that doesn't work then take the back cover off and unscrew the 6 screws at the back of the phone( don't worry it is easy and you can't brake or damage anything :D hope this is helpful

  • press and hold power button + press and hold - vol buttom.... it works for me!!!

  • I have the same proble, how do you restart the phone, can u tell me please :))

  • I want to ask if there is a good touch and what system (fast, slow)

  • I want to ask if there is a good touch and what system (fast, slow)

  • I like the design, the size, the weight of this phone. It just looks and feels perfect. But I have one thing that bothers me and that is frequent freezing of the phone. It just freezes once in 2-3 days and I need to restart it. Does anyone has the same issues or its just mine phone?

  • there is radio too and it has 418 mb of RAM

  • i was downloading apps from the android market and suddenly my internet connection has lost.. also i cant go to the internet with the wifi and etc.. anyone knows what is the problem

  • Great phone for the money I've paid. There are full scope of performances that could be offered + great design, very similar to Iphone 4.

  • It has android 2.3 which allows you to search for driving directions with speaking without typing it has maps . It has facebook,youtube,gmail,navigation , sportypal , and the greatest function is the mobile tv . It is cool phone and it comes from huawei but i hope that the quality is good because because It has 2 years garanty and I was suprised when i saw that it has radio . It is a lot like Iphone 4 but with android . I hope my review will be on use for you !

  • I buy this phone in Macedonia ist abouth 90eur in post paid i can say it perfect for the money i use iphone 4 an when i take this fone in hands it like to use my iphone. simply buy it it very good
