I brought this phone on 20 nov 2006 it is a remarkable phone with a long battery life. . . ! It's keypad is very great and it is a very rough and tough phone
This was my first phone. I bought it in September 30th,2006 and I was very happy and proud. I'd play the soccer and snake game almost every time!. I used it for 3 years with no problem apart from the mouthpiece which I got repaired and it was working again. I sold it in August 2009 with battery still great and bought the Nokia 5130 Xpress music.
Nokia 1600 was first mobile. It was my first mobile and also a coloured phone so i for a week liked it. There is a carrom game and cricket for Indian market. So first some weeks were quite entertaining. Good battery, good reception, good communication. But i wanted more. I was using my fathers CDMA phone 2280 which had a monochrome display but features like wap, so my boredom started. I liked this small handset but it was not dying at all :) so i wont lie that i loved it. There are businessmen who can say they love this phone because of its crystal clear sound and other calling advantages but i was in my youth and i started to move my head around to get hands on a cheaper phone with wap so that i can browse google and send emails download java apps. All above features were not possible in this ultra basic colour handset so i made a mistake of life and bought a 2626 which was a super dull device with buttons like rocks and processor like UNIAC. But overall the phone is still running. I handed it to my brother who currently uses it because of its good voice clarity and back up. :)
it was my first phone with my own number in 2006. steel working to my uncl. ..
This has the best antenna I've ever used on a phone and battery lasts more than a week. For my kind of work, I've to travel and stay at remote villages most times where electricity is very rare to find, let alone charge my phone. I always carry this as a backup phone during my travels because in the end this is the only thing I can trust when I need a phone. Cant say the same for my iPhone 3GS which only lasts a day and a half atmost and has a weaker signal reception or shows no signal at all most times.
