Word to the wise: this phone has NO KEYPAD BACKLIGHTING and is near impossible to type in the dark. I would recommend this to expert typists only.

Jett, 24 Nov 2011hi, well, it really depends to the user laxis. not everyone has the same need and outloo... moreHmm....you're right Jett, I do not use the dual Sim always, and the mp3 player do not use it much too [I need to get a reader for the microSD for transferring files now, and what do you expect to do with all that expandable memory other than just music?]....a big turn off for me was the design and that squeaky noise from the back cover and the echo from the speaker chamber. Nokia used to make real good phones earlier which I used to love.... so I assumed the 101 would be better or at least match the earlier designs...but I was disappointed....and I found that the Samsung 1085 was able to match Nokia's earlier designs even better [good speaker, sleek design, very comfy to hold and grip, no squeaking, and the s/w and user interfaces are quite good...plus Nokia does not have a similar phone like the 1085 in this range/price.....so my need is served with the Samsung1085 which cost about Rs. 1000....My only mistake was, being extremely brand loyal to Nokia...
