After a few months with it I start to hate it. Battery life sucks even with one sim in it. mp3 does not play well 128kbit or higher. Feels slow. Its heavy and is hard to type on it fast.You can not see the screen unless in the shade or inside. Volume is really low and is not clear on the earpiece. Its worst on the speakerphone. I really start to hate it. Get something else. I used a blu tank and that was a better phone than this.

No need of microSD memory card. Runs without any fuss.
Neither Nokia nor WhatsApp has listed 208 model support in their sites.

But it work for me.

Note - I use ONLY single sim; Do NOT know if that makes any difference in case you are trying with both sims ON

I have gotten this phone from w electronics and the first one had an screen spot issue. They were great to replace it and this one works just fine.

PROs:
-dual sim works great and simple
-really great feel in hand
-stable os and apps
-whatsapp works if you copy it manually to the phone/SD card
-camera is great and images look clean
-sound quality is great
-edge is fast even on google maps, twitter and weather app

CONs:
-battery life is not great: 1 sim about 3 days, 2 sims less than 2 days
-when i have two sims in, and does not matter what carrier sim i use it says the storage is not ready.
battery could be better, my GX200 last 5-7 days with both sims even after 3 years of use.
-ear piece sound is low and a bit muffed
-speaker sound is really low and unclear
-microphone does not pick sound beyond 1 meter away
-3G could not test in USA since the radio bands
-does not ring loud or the alarm is really quiet

I would get C2-01 or Nokia 2700 Classic over this. I also got a Nokia Asha 309 and that was worst than this. Keep is classic Nokia do not mess up this phones too.
