I wonder why Nokia 230 does not support 3G network! As we know there are some countries have already abandoned or upgraded their network into 3G or even 4G! It would be good to provide 3G support for those markets or as a faster options where both 2G/3G are still available!
Waiting for new models with KaiOS system. 8810 is too small and I don't like the sliding cover.
Manufactures: Stop making 2G phones. There are enough 2G used-phones in 3G/4G-using-countries to be shipped to 2G-using-countries at half price. Save the environment.

Here in Malaysia I still set my smartphone to use 2G instead of 3G/4G to save data battery because wifi is everywhere.. And in the remote rural areas only 2G with EDGE are available.. But still 100kbps is fast enough for light surfing AND youtube GO

They couldve just made 3G as standard on their latest basic phones, this will be a total flop unless they will target only Asian Countries/Africa that still has 2G.
Why do people just fight the hell out of it just for a €20 feature phone?
I mean, we aren't buying flaghships you know.

2G only is terrible these days while countries are on 3G/4G
hope to have low SAR value , 105 & 130 sar value are high

Making this 2G only is physically segregating those who only want a simple phone to be stuck with inferior product. There are VoLTE feature phones for $20-$30 nowadays. Nokia has no excuse.
I get many readers are angry at the absence of 4g (inc me), but guys do see the stats that HMD is shipping 50+ million basic phones and so many countries still have 2g...so yes there is a market for it and we should respect that!
Anonymous, 14 Nov 20182G-only makes these basically useless...not for me and many people around the world, many countries will keep supporting 2G, and i live in one of them, these phones will work fine.
both phones are 2G-only
Really? That is dumb. Many countries are ditching 2G already. In fact, even developing countries have 4G only carriers now. Making this a 2G only phone is extremely stupid. Just because it's a feature phone, doesn't mean it has to be obsolete out of the box. At least put 3G in it for better voice call quality. Nokia can make a 4G feature phone before, no excuse for this one to be 2G only.
