Yes, it does support Whatsapp.

Music player is OK. You can browse your library from artists/albums/genres. You can't browse from folders though, so you'll have to have your ID3 tags filled in correctly.

You can have the music player running in background if you want to do something else on your phone. When you receive or make a call, the music is automatically paused, and automatically played when the call is finished.

I tried playing some mp3 files, sound quality is fine. The volume is also loud enough, I played my music at volume 5 over 10 in a noisy environment with traditional earphones (not in-ear headphones). Played at 10/10, it killed my ears.

Hope that helps.

Hi the phone is okay. I will post a review of this phone. The spaces surrounding the keypad gather lots of dust. The memory Card is not Hot Swappable although it place on the side cauze base on the manual you should switched it off before removing. The Log is under the Contacts which is so annoying. It doesn't support Proxy and Port when connecting on the net. The Photo Browser has a limit of 1000. The sound output is good on EP. But the loudspeaker is muffled. The Alarm Clock supports up to 10 slots. The Video Recording is poor. The Captured Photo is acceptable if you used it on Well Lit Areas. The Phone Hangs and Restarts oftenly due for being low Memory Phone(the Ram is 1MB user available). It has built in Data Counter App for me it's good. The Battery Back Up is okay. The rest is still Old School Nokia Phone.

bought nokia 206 for my dad but now im keeping it myself. :D awesome phone. Superb look and very comfortable in hands. Easy to use and black one looks classy. Nokia is the best and this phone is best to go for if you are not looking for QWERTY. If looking for qwerty,go for nokia asha 205 and if touch go for asha 501 or the ultimate one lumia series smartphones. Nokia rocks!

One thing you cannot change (and that's too bad), is the timeout before the phone keyboard locks itself: 1 min.

You can assign any shortcut key of your choice to lock the keyboard though.

Something I might add: even if the phone don't have the drafts functionality (at least I have not found it), the SMS you are currently writing is saved if you quit the writing before sending the message. When you'll go back to the SMS editor, your text will be there.

What do you mean by screensaver?

I didn't test much the call functionality, so I won't promise the sound quality is perfect. From the couple calls I made, it seemed fine enough for me. I'll let you know when I will have done more calls.

Yes I agree with you. Changing the theme changes the menus icons and the menus wallpaper, but not the home screen wallpaper.
But you can change it manually by going into Settings->Display->Wallpaper.

I tried to set the wallpaper as a .swf file, and it didn't work (message is "Unable to select. File type unusable"). But you can change the wallpaper with any .png file you like.

I don't think you can use the phone as a modem via the bluetooth. I didn't find any option relative to that. Unfortunately, I don't have an Internet package with my phone, so I won't be able to really test it in the end even if someone found a way to do it.

Hope that helps.
