roufus,if you purchased this phone then you are in loss od 3k,
if you want basic phone just to call and sms then buy nokia 1280,for rs900,this phone is competing with x202 itself if you pay little higher than it should be worth of if nokia added x202 3.2cam,torch,contact search,with xpress music this will be called upgraded of x202,upgraded to nokia 206,then i would be praising with faith,im ardent fan of nokia,and i invested my hard money if im not satisfied upto the mark as company standard then i feel cheated,ok tell me why nokia not launched single sim variant simultaneously bcoz they're full aware they are going to rob millions of nokia fan,,,they kno the weakness of ours bcoz we won't feel using other brand comfortably...just think nokia 112 has equalizer,call alert vibration,long battery life than nokia 206,and fast browsing and price just rs2200.
Its nokia responsible to upgrade this phone asap urgency........

Also, it has the classic S40 feature that has low incoming call ringtone for a couple of seconds and then gets louder.
Overall, nice and clear voice quality with excellent reception.

> In reply to rufous @ 2013-02-19 18:02 from a0tb - click to readI am using it for about a month
battery timing in spec is 20 hrs but actually it is merely 8 hrs.
no usb
price is higher than other brand's mobiles especially in developing countries ( I am from Pak. rs. 61000)
camera only 1.3 mega pixel.
bit low speed
simply nokia is not focusing developing countries' youth.

> In reply to Jenin @ 2013-02-19 18:13 from K2Ib - click to readNetwork - fine. ( i hv noticed that network is sim company dependent. i have sim of different companies, one has excellent reception, other cuts off randomly, irrelevant of sim slot used)

Volume ring - yeah a bit low. But some of its basic tunes are loud. Speaker is at back so if you phone face down you hear better.

Basically its a very basic phone. Forget about using net on this one. Buy it only for Calls and good battery life ( gives me 5 days on single sim, 3-4 days on dual sim)

Bought this about a month ago. earlier had samsung pop. It's a basic phone, worth not doing internet on. the best thing is battery life. on same talk time, i used to charge samsung pop 2 times in a day, and this i charge once in 5 days!! (use it only for calls though, no net)

The root cause of all hue and cry is over pricing of this phone. Samsung mobiles with 3G and video calling are available at much lesser price than this.C5010 at Rs3100,Hero3213 at Rs.3050and Primo S5610 at Rs.4600.

I can't believe all these inaccuracies mentioned about the Nokia 206 phone.
First of all bear in ming that this is NOT A SMARTPHONE, neither a torchlight, a dedicated mp3 player of camera! This a cell phone. And a cheap one, mainly for the younger audience and those who want a nice and economic dual sim headset.
This phone has no lag. It has a vibrator and it connects with Nokia Suite succesfully (edition 3.5.34 was tested) via bluetooth.
Please, stop exaggerate about it's abilities and start enjoying it.
