I used this phone for a one year. Not Bad but its rubber keypad is becoming bad and unseen.
how many hour's can this battery re-charge please answer my question in silence whahahaha./
some buttons doesnt work, so you need to push on it harder until it works. iv seen it in many 1208 phones.
It is good looking no doubt but it some times hangs and in this mobile goto function does not work and some times the bettery is charged twice a day.

This is a great cheap phone that is sold as a "pay as you go" phone, but you can use your T Mobile SIM card in it. $19.99 at Walmart.

this is a really good phone, i dont have to worry about gps and camera and so on from this phone, i have an n82 for that, this is a really solid phone..
What attracted me to this phone was the way the menus work. At the start window you choose between the standard menu and your personal menu. The navigation button allows you to scroll horizontally through menu sections and then up and down within each section. The left button selects and the right button returns you to the previous level. Clear, efficient functions and an attractive full-color display. Also, a good selection of ring tones. Plus calendar, alarm, stopwatch/coutdouwn, calculator, flashlight, keypad lock, themes. My only improvement would be rubberized sides for a better grip.
If you want lots of frills, do not buy this phone. If you want a rugged, reliable beater just to talk to people, the 1208 should be on your short list.
I'd been looking to go back to a small, lightweight Nokia for some time. I'm a big Nokia fan, but the 6085 flipper I've had for a year was just too heavy and bulky in my pocket. I don't use photos, camera, bluetooth, browser, mp3, or any of those bells and whistles. 95% calls, 5% text.
My son just came back from 3 years in the Peace Corps in Bangladesh and the Republic of Georgia. Nokia 1200's are standard issue to PCVs, and they are apparently renowned for their toughness and reliability. He couldn't use his 900/1800 PC-issue 1200 in the USA, so he bought a 1208, which is basically the same phone. I loved it so much I bought an unlocked one myself on Ebay for less than $40 U.S., including shipping.
So far, so good. v 4.0 firmware, so no Goto or SMS bugs as reported elsewhere. People say I sound good. Plenty of volume, good audio quality. My only gripe is a useless manual and (as far as I can tell) no any-key answer.
If anybody knows how to activate any-key answer, please post.
