Average Star Rating:


Not exactly the brightest star in TTfone's basic phone galaxy, the Star (TT300) opts for a bevy of old-fashioned, senior-driven specifications.

It comes with a 4GB microSD card slot and throws a headset in the package as well. It offers dual-band GSM connectivity and comes in Gray or Red.
