Hi, I want to buy my dad a phone who is not very tech savvy, so i need something which simple and practical. a phone with big keys and big display letters on screen would be great. Please help!, is this the one i should go for?
I have purchased this cell but the prob is that its look like a china made..& the memory of mobile is very low...
it shoulb be a external memory card to put in the mobile...
& mobile is a bit slow...some time we have to wait for opening any function...
i have this phone for almost a year now, i love this unit. just my own opinion..love the white too
Guys, Come on! The Battery on this Nokia is outstanding if used as a GSM phone. Leave the bluetooth on or use the GPRS all the time and like all other phones the battery will drain in hours instead of days. This is probably the lightest, slimmest phone with a good battery life you can get. There are smaller lighter gimmicky ones with batteries that are lucky to last one day with no use. If you want good battery life, learn how to use it properly rather than moaning.
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2008I am thinking to buy this phone but I am in dilemma caused by reading experiences of some of t... moreGPRS is only at 48Kbs max and that is dependant on your supplier. I tried it and gave up waiting - the screen is too small to do anything of any use. Watch the GPRS though - on some contracts it can eat away at your bank balance if you are in and out of a GPRS signal and it has to renegotiate. My friend didn't realise that until he got back from a Carribean holiday - he was charged 4.7 pence everytime the phone polled the network. SO if you roam a lot - turn off the data modes.
Bought one after seeing them in Ukraine. Get it from Carphonewarehouse on PAYG then toss away the SIM and put in my old one. (IT was UNLOCKED) £24.95 with the T-Mobile SIM supplied - now on Vodaphone.
Battery lasts ages. The Camera is very poor and basically a gimmic. The Bluetooth is good I bought a £9.97 Bluetooth headset from Tesco. Only negative thing is the screen - like all cheap Nokia phones the screens are really poor. WHy don't they listen to their customes and put in a BRIGHT display with BIG fonts. The phone is slim and a bit too small now I've had it for 3 months. Making it a few mm wider and 10mm longer would enable BIGGER KEYS and a better display. I'm sure the elderly generations like myself would by them in their dozens if the phone was bigger. Otherwise a good feature rich cheap phone. Buy it unlocked if you can as they are difficult to unlock later. I found the Nokia not as sensitive as my other works phone (Blackberry Pearl) therefore I have different SIM cards. T-Mobile is great in Wales on the Nokia but poor around the works in Milton Keynes. Vodafone is better in MK but poor at my home in Lancashire and iffy in Wales. All tested on the Nokia.
I dont like this fone. I had one and it broke after 3 months. It had only about 8 mb of ram. Never used it for listening music. After that i bought some very cheap alcatel fone for half the price and now i have cheaper fone with mp3 player and card slot for storing music.

I am thinking to buy this phone but I am in dilemma caused by reading experiences of some of the users complaining about its GPRS capabilities. Is it good or bad as far as GPRS is concerned?

Dont bother, i had one for weeks and it colapsedstop hating on the phone!
it probably collapsed because you were so careless with it. Any phone would break if you don't treat it properly.
This phone is great, has great features and looks good. Nice and slim to fit in your pocket, not an outrageous price and has a good camera. Has many features and has quite a lot of memory space. I don't no what everyone is talking about, this phones battery lasts for a while, mine lasts for about a week without being turned off. People are just hating on it, its a good phone for what it is and is simple. I would suggest buying it if you want a reliable and simple phone.
