Hi to all
1- Can i increase earpiece volum during a call?
2- Why after sending a sms, the words remain on screen ?
I've got this phone since 1 month, and i can say that is a good basic set, simple, good signal, durable, cheap, ideal 4 kids, good battery life. The resolution isn't so accurate; if u want games, you'll know what i mean. Ringtone sound isn't so loud, but it's enough for me 'cause at outdoors i use the vibracall (don't worry about how loud is the street noise, vibracall is the solution), and the max. volume is enough for home. Voice sound is perfect, loud and clear. Make sure the firmware phone is 4.00 (10.09.2007), before u buy it. You can see it by pressing *#0000#. If it does, this phone is a good option.
Flashlight is definitively usefull.
I recommend this phone as a basic set. You can't send MMS, only SMS (it's possible sending default images to another NOKIA phones via SMS, i just tested this option, it works to another NOKIAs)
Any doubts, email-me at email@example.com
i have this phone and so far, i didn't encounter any problems w/ this phone. I like it, i brought it from an exclusive nokia store. we just have to make that we buy phone from exclusive nokia outlets to avoid certain problems.
Internal microphone low quality (very bad quality of sound).
GSM codec bad , interruption 5% even near cells .
Plus: Battery life .
Plus: construction .
Plus: very low price .
Minus: display contrast
Minus: ringer tones , too low volume .
If transfer card from Nokia3510i can not recognize name on incomings calls .
Many people remark about interruption of speach.
My phone in good condition (no drop at all) .
Not recomand this 1208 / basic functions : sound(sent) not good .
This is a good set.
But can anyone tell me how can I set a good ringtone for this set.

Nice phone, very good battery and signal, but the keyboard is to small, hard to push if you have big fingers, and i found some software bugs, when i try to mark the options for right key the phone it's restarting. In conclusion, cheap phone, quality as price... Don't buy...

My 1209 was able to keep 89 text messages before it said Message memory full. I also noticed it has a brighter and clearer LCD than my friend's 1208 and my old 2310.
Anyway, both phones still have the software bug regarding the Sent Items where some messages remain in "pending" status even when they were in fact already sent. Once your Sent Items folder becomes filled with these "pending" items, you have no choice but to MANUALLY delete them one by one or you wouldn't be able to send any more text messages--a bug which has been around for over a year in the 1xxx series since firmware version 5.00 and Nokia never fixed.
Yeah Shadowed is correct, this phone's battery will last for a week...you got a problem with battery!
Razor, 24 May 2008You have to use a triband phone outside philippines..this phone is only a dual band!Correction: you would only need a triband phone if you're going to the US or Canada. Everywhere else a dual band phone with 1800 MHz frequency would work just fine.
shareef kottakkal, 28 May 2008hi nokia,,, bad bad bad ,,,,,,backup ,,,,,,,,maximum one day ,,,,,,very very very bad backup,,,,,,You're very wrong, dude. Either you use your phone excessively (in that case, you'll discover that almost every phone you'll use will have bad battery backup) or a defective battery (probably accidental) was bundled with your unit. My 1208's battery lasts for about a week.
