Ali, 25 Jun 2013can we Password lock Messaging, contact , in this phone? No, it doesn't. You can only password lock the main lock screen.
Unfortunately, it does not support Whatsapp/Viber/YouTube (yet?).

Anonymous, 25 Jun 2013poor man's iphoneWell it is really i guess for developing countries 2G. I think nokia mainly focuses on that now, lack of 3G is evidence.
AnonD-27765, 24 Jun 2013Major drawback is it doesn't have 3G.There are numerous articles about the possibility of 3G either being added to this device ''sometime in the future'' or ''in September'', and even a quote from the main man himself :
The Asha 501 will initially be a 2G phone “as 80 percent of the world operates in 2G environment,” said Elop, but Nokia will widen the range to include 3G phones as well.
