this phone is the worst ive ever owned in my life! ive had it a few months and it is so slow to open up messages, delete messages, no camera, turns itself off and on, tells me sim card is not ready, tells me my phonebook is empty when it isnt and also doesnt show who messages are from just the numbers. the battery life is awesome though. not too keen on the keypad either. waste of time and money. i just bought the nokia 2220 while it is sent away and it is million times better then nokia c100!!!!!! and paid same price for it as the c100

Dual-sim may be important in areas where most of the phone user uses prepaid sim cards-such ase developping countries. So no contracts, only sim cards loaded whit some ammount of money you know. You buy a simcard whit some ammount of money loaded and when you have used the money by texting, calls or web browsing you just buy annother sim(or load the old one). So, if you have two sim cards in your phone you can be sure that you can continue using your phone if your account in the other sim gets empty.

This is a good phone to developing countries - cheap and good for prepaid sims.

its a good phone just bought it for 1300...battery is good,i know both sims dont work at same time but its ok given the price its cool...i would nt mind switchin sim in case my balance goes out...its just an additional feature. I just bought this coz i needed secondary phone and its working good compared to other basic nokia phone at this range.

Nokia as clearly stated this is a Dual sim but with single sim active. So ppl who wants it will buy it. I think a great phone in this price range by Brand Nokia. Friends with some few simple tricks you can make both sims active. for the trick mail me

Well looking at these comments, it looks like all the cheapp mobile makers has started crying because of Nokia's entry in Dual Sim market.

Know these before u launch. Dont Expect BMW into the cost of Nano. there was a need of it and nothing is wrong in launching anything which add up their hold in the market. They have lunched a phone look at it read it think about it, if u didn't liked it move on man. rather than making such comments on any companys effort.

People who want such phone will buy them no matter what u have to say.

people who has cheap dual sim phones with chinese imports will make comments like: no dual stand by, no camera, no memory card. please move on try to make comments on smartphones or other high end phones.

this phone is for people who want a good talking great stand by time along with dual sim holding capabilities. great buy for them. do go for it or wait for C-2 if u can.

Thanks. All of the above was my personel view/opinon.

worst phone, it maybe called a Dual SIM-phony but no dual standby feature.. tsk!! poor.. If i'll be using a dual sim handset I want both simcard to be active. What's the use of the other simcard if you can't have it both active? The price is good but features aren't.
