Have it now since 2 months ago. The performance of this model is the usual for this price range. The worse things about the Nokia 2720 Fold are:
- 9 Mb. of free memory is nothing for today's cells usage.
- 128x160 is a very very low resolution for today's cells needs.
This phone is "screaming" for a memory slot.
i've had my phone
for a week.
my volume is perfectly fine.
no dropped calls; perfect service.
the only problem is it doesn't hold much
memory ii have 4 pictures & 5 rinq tones &
my memory is already full.
I have never had a phone that changes the setting all by its self. The manual is not worth anything. You can't find out anything in it. I am very upset with this phone.
John, 19 Jan 2010Two defects from my two day use:
1. The call will be disconnected when I fold the phone, ev... moreyou have to activate the call waiting feature in the phone's settings. also, it's a flip phone, it's designed to disconnect the call when you fold it. however this feature can also be deactivated in the settings.
i've had this phone for 2 days and I haven't had any problems with it. many have complained about call volume, and I too experienced it. I rectified the problem by holding the speaker directly over my ear and the volume was fine, I then moved it slightly above my ear and the volume got worse, this is a little annoying, but not that big a deal, just realize where your ear is in relation to the speaker.
the only problem i have with this phone is the lack of external memory. If it has a music player it should have some sort of a memory card slot. 9 MB of built in memory is practically nothing
The call reception on this phone is good. But the volume when you are talking to someone is very poor. I will have it all the way turned up, and still can barely here the person I am talking to. And have to ask them to repeat themselves many times. Also deleting text messages on the phone sucks. I try to use the auto-delete and it freezed after deleting about 20 messages. The same happens when trying to delete them one by one. And so my only choice is to take out the battery and then turn the phone back on, of which this takes an hour at least before it will switch back on and actually work properly rather than freezing again. I have bought cheap phones before, cheaper than this one, but aside from looks this is the worse phone I have ever had. DO NOT buy this phone. It will break after a month of use.
It is a very good phone.
Better than my other phone's reception at same place.
No call drop, speed of software in it is good as expected.
Nothing to complain about. Exactly what this phone is for, a phone.
andrew, 08 Dec 2009why is dat de fone keypad is not qwerty keypad and lk at hw it is.ok i like de features but wa... moreAndrew, please learn to spell or speak English. Either one would be a great improve to your future
i just got a 2720 cell phone. its looks nice , but if mmc slot also available ,its much better.
I have been reading the comments posted on here about the 2720 and cant help but wonder what people expect for a phone at this price? It's usable and simple, I bought one for my father and cant fault it, I would not have one personally but that's because I want all the bells and whistles, most of which I never use!
I bought mine yesterday and plugged in the charger and it gave me a message saying "charger not accepted", so i tried the same charger on my other nokia phone and it worked fine, and i also tried another nokia charger on the 2720 and it read the same message. Im very dissapointed, and the buttons are annoying and impossible and the fact that it has no external memory is frustrating. The sound quality is also very bad during a call
I had my phone for just under a month before it broke. I had not damaged the phone in any way, but it wouldn't call out and the screen went blank. It wouldn't even turn off. I took it back to the store, and they could not fix it either. Luckily, I had had the phone for just under a month and was able to exchange it for a different model.
Besides that issue, the phone was cheap and flimsy. The volume was way too low and would fluctuate during a call. The key pad was difficult to use as the sensor was under a small part of the key so unless you pressed the key in just the right place, it wouldn't work.
I have always bought cheap phones, but this was the first cheap phone that ever truly felt cheap.
rob, 10 Jan 2010A regal piece of dung. Looks cheap, feels cheap and works even worse. Sound is barely audible.... moresoooo right!!!! the volume is horrible!!! even at highest volume level it is barely audible and as if that weren't bad enough, the volume fades totally in and out while on call with full bars!!! junk!!!
I bought this phone at Target for $29(on sale from $39) as a prepaid phone. It came with 10 free min, but I just put in my contract T-mobile SIM card. My reason for switching from a Samsung Gravity to a $30 Nokia is that the Gravity gets very poor reception, especially in my home. So far problem solved. Not one dropped call yet. I've had the Nokia for a few days now. The Gravity would drop a call within 2-3 min, or at best the other party couldn't hear me. No bars all over my home, now, at least 2 bars and only one report of my voice sounding weird. Great second/backup phone if you get poor reception or a good cheap spare.
Two defects from my two day use:
1. The call will be disconnected when I fold the phone, even when I plugin a headphone. That's very inconvinient.
2. If I pick up another call during a call, the first call will be disconnected.
I quickly read the manual but didn't figure out a way to resolve them. If you know any solution please email me at immyownpet2000 at yahoo.
