Hah, awesome. I think I'll buy one for my mum.
Probably worth noting that Carphone Warehouse's stock is usually unlocked out of the box.

It's a pretty decent phone; my wife traded her old Android in for a 710 and she's quite happy with it. All in all it fit her needs perfectly and it sits squarely in the "it just works with no f'ing around" category.
Wow, this is pretty tempting to get for my Mum. I'll have to see what she says!

Makes the 610 seem even more pointless...
I know a few people getting this solely because of the price.

I bought one.
There is no rotation lock (so awful for using it when you're laying down) and no way to increase the (very small) text size in Windows Phone 7.5.
Also, the camera of the 710 is poor and the fact there is no continuous auto-focus doesn't help at all.
Sure, it's £110 (you have to buy a £10 top-up) but it's still beaten by Orange's Monte Carlo (ZTE Skate) in my opinion (which is also £110).

Most of your wishes could be granted if you custom ROM it here: (710 forum is combined with 800 for now)
Depending on the bootloader it is either easy or very easy to flash it
