The 1600 is great for my needs if you can find the older 1100 it has better construction especially the keyboard and a flash light that came in handy more often then you might think.
this my mobile it is very fantastic [img]http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_...188.php[img]
This is the perfect phone for me .. battery lasts for at least 5 days, droped it many times had absolutely no problem, design is fine .. who needs camera, mp3, gprs and other stuff they will never use go buy another phone .. for the rest of us this is the best phone ..
This is Practically the best, simple easy carry, longer battery life, strong & Reliable. Good For All.
Black is good.Battery talktime is great.Anyway Simple and good design construction by Nokia.Jai Nokia
it might not be fancy, but it works, its small, receptions good, practically indestructable (i've accidentally swam with mine for 10 minutes, got out, took it apart and shook water off, put it together and turned it on, worked perfectly. and its basically free

Fricking fantsastic. I have a busy student life, and in my first year I went trhough 8-9 phones. I then bought this cheap model so if I lost it then so be it. 2 years on I still have it and it still works perfectly, ok albeit a bit scratched but the battery will still last me 3 days. Its a phone, buy a camera and an mp3 player if you want the rest of the stuff.
good enuf for normal use.....nothing new..had it 2006, work abuse phone and it held up through rain,snow,heat and london concrete hahahaha...now we have newer phones.
Ronald D, 05 Jun 2008I have a Nokia 1600. I can't send any messages from it as a message: Message sending error pop... morethats because of the bug mentioned below. apparently the phone cant send any msg if the sent items is full of pending msgs. clear your sent items. the msg shouldnt pop up.
I have a Nokia 1600. I can't send any messages from it as a message: Message sending error pop s up then after that a sending message process comes up. How can I have this problem rectified?
The latest version of this phone still has 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 since firmware version 5.00 and was ported to the newer 1xxx series including the 1208/1209/1650 and the 2310. In spite of all the customer complaints, Nokia never fixed it.
