I just purchased the silver-gray version of the phone yesterday(1203)- it is easily the most text friendly phone available today! The keypad on the 1203 is much better than the one on the 1202. Although the buttons are soft, they still provide for great touch-orientation which is remarkable because in most other phones there's always a compromise between the two. And as for the vibration that people talk about, I could not feel them when I was on a call. But yes, if you whack the phone against the palm of your hand you can feel it vibrate, but that's OK... I think I'll spend far more time texting or calling than trying to slap my hand silly :D
You can always trust Nokia to make a killer phone
Heil Nokia! \m/
Dear readers i purchased 1202 from Dubai two months ago, i found this set the Most reliable set, two days ago i got agressive and i hit that cell on the floor with my full strength, and i purchased new from my cousin's shop again 1202. i beleave this is the set u can break any time, and best set in market, technology ends here, voice quality is best, slim set, look very decent in my jeans poket, further i dont have enough time to write more, but i just say THE BEST SET IN THE MARKET....
Dear all ,hello and Asalam o alkium,
I have last day bought this set from islamabad(pakitan) blue area market for Rs 2150 PKR (that is about 26 US DOLLARS)
before buy i seen everyone comments here and also seen different reviews on internet.
i must say within the price of this set is a good set to buy. depend upon your pocket size you go for mobile buys , if you need a set for only calling and texting no doubt this is the finest nokia set with people refering to nokia 1100 and 1101 , i must say its style and look is much better and than those old models and not to mention the screen size even match up the same but screen brightness and font size is perfect to read the screen in any weather or day time /night.
about people complaining about in call vibaration then ists not a big vibarator there is a small vibaration that can be avoided if you dont think about it.
The best thing i found to be is the Louder ring tone than nokia 1100 and 1101 and mp3 grade polyphonic sounds are soothing the alaram tone can be off any tones avialable and there are many features in this set that comply to have the best basic set may have.
First time the battery was charged for me in three hours, the keypad is very soothing and dust reistant ,when you press the keys its is not felt that you are putting any effort ,sms writing is fast and t9 software supports several other languages ,even pushto was there too :)
about is negative points then i must say the phonebook memory is small and also sms memory but what is its price of set then its acceptable
For new buyers who want a good basic set ,with active calling,long battery and text messages ,go for it.because its is made for everyone who want the set to be simple with performance in mind.
overall i rate the set 8/10 with call quality ,long battery and slim and nice key mat
the set is considered to be nokia for all especially for the people who have lower or medium budget to buy the cell.
GO BUY IT BEFORE YOU CANT FIND IT !!
OK TAKE CARE !!

Hi All... I'm a very big fan of 1100 & 1112. Now I'm using a different phone and looking to buy a basic model. I have seen the 1202 and have used it and its is very very much similar to the other two phones I mentioned. So before buying, I read the reviews and was suprised to see more negative comments. Most relating to bad speaker output & phone vibration while speaking.
So I did made a test call with this phone both in the normal & loud speaker mode. What I found was.....Loud speaker isn't bad and the expected quality was there...however while speaking, you can feel a mild vibration. Yes.! in both the modes, there was vibration but I can strongly say....it isn't very disturbing or annoying. The phone is very light in weight, so you can experience these mild vibration because of the material. This isn't going to stop me from buying this phone.
What I like most in these phones is the keypad which helps you with rough usage...What I would like to suggest or badly hope from Nokia is....have more memory for your phonebook and for SMS storage. Working professionals who use the phone mostly for calling & texting, would really enjoy a space for 500 - 1000 phone entries and a suitable memory which helps you store around 1000 texts.
I used to own a 1202... Initially, I was pretty excited when it first came out because I was thinking that Nokia was able to finally release another new basic phone model, and being a fan of the 1100, 1200 and 1110 and it's cousins, I got one as soon as possible. However once I started using the phone, most of the flaws came out. First, like about half of the people here are ranting about, the talk function is so bad. The next guy to you will hear your conversation, and when I say hear, I mean clearly! Second, for some reason (also being complained by others) the phone suddenly restarts itself, whether in the middle of typing a text message or simply playing a game of rapid roll. The two glitches kinda disappointed me, so I traded phones with a friend who has a 1200. The 1202 is a good phone because of it's slim design and the great keypad it comes with, however they should fix up the speaker issue and have the phone's software/power system checked because the problems it has really turn out to be inconveniences.
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2009how to activate the gps , and the tv tuner ?IS it funny?
i bought this phone in the US and brought it to KL, GPS is amazing and camera is very clear...
music is quite not good thru speakers but headset quality is the best. word, excel and powerpoint viewer is good but i think it's better if you can edit. over-all worth the price
Just got it a few days ago...and its better than i had expected!
It's really fast and slim and light!
What i really liked was it extremely long battery life(Charge once a few days ago and still FULL!!) and the strong flashlight.
i originally got this phone as a back up for my nokia e90 and im carrying it everywhere!:D
Because of this phone, im also planning to get nokia 1208:P:P
this phone have many function..
there are tv tuner,gps and more..
maybe you can connect it with pc and you will get a gps & edge & wifi and all
