Nokia C3 review: SNS love

Nokia C3 review: SNS love - read the full textNokia C3 is young and social, simple and reliable. Messaging and social networking are the very heart of this handset. But are they enough of a head-turner to become a phone's key selling points? Sure thing! Just add a pinch of charisma and hang a price tag...

More importantly, Nokia's browser makes direct SSL/TSL contact
with the target web site for things like Internet banking, etc.,
thus retaining the security features of those protocols, whereas
Opera Mini functions like almost all SSL proxies and exposes the
connection within Opera's servers. Opera is unlikely to make
off with anyone's bank details or report on their favourite porn
downloads, but exposed is exposed and so it is just that much
less secure. After WikiLeaks' (and others') problems in Sweden,
do you trust Opera-tions to hold your data inviolate if someone
claiming to be Important demands to see it? Opera for fun and
speed, the Nokia browser for connections where you want maximum
security.

Trying to love the brand inspite of all the flaws- takes a long time for the battery to get fully charged; still dont kno the need of the Menu- conversation-. multuple menus performing same functions, wat else? maybe its just good enough!

Font size as well as ringer can be changed. The font can be regular or large and the volume is super loud. It has a usb connection on the phone but you have to buy the cord extra. The phone is worth the money

Since i am using this phone which is a worth value of money. I find it is useful almost in every segment the only problem i faced is that i am installing Gmail application which is not running into it, however it has already push mail feature but it would be more better if it also works directly. Although the phone is good enough to full fill all necessary requirements either used for normal multimedia phone or applications related with internet it works almost in every segment.

HORRIBLE!!! this takes 4 hours and 30 mins to full battery power tank (1320 mAh) and most rubbish is no micro usb charging. the 2 mp camera is below average and video recording is also very poor. this cheap budget C3 loses many essential compartments which is necessary for QWERTY messaging mobiles phone. I give 4.5 out of 10 points and want to sell it only Rs 3000.

I have bought the C3 nokia and there is no option to view sent text messages. The menu where this option is suppoosed to appear doesn't have the option. Can any one help or should I return it?
