Why can't they make a simple phone with Bluetooth? If you ask why-just for "hands-free" driving. These phones are usually used by elderly people,they don't send files to each other but they drive!
Thank you Nokia for releasing this simple monochrome display grafic phone. They are very popular in our country at present especially dual sime basic phones. We prefere to use them because of good price and quality. :>
The display is too small. It's ok to be monochrome. The handset is too big for a single sim. Make it dual sim, please!
Cheap models are silent successful ones....not like iPhones and Galaxies based on advts. and reviews etc... after all phones are for dialling and talking or messaging and keeping in contact...
model 1280 was for 2 yrs without any hitch... this replacement with just keypad change (seems to be plastic instead of rubber) and slight outer design change, compared to 1280 should go a longtime... request to release with more contact (1000)/SMS memories and wireless FM ... if such model is introduced, there is no need to change the design for min. 5 yrs....
also request to fix price to 500 to 600 rupees with lifetime SIM bundled (any brand) so that each affordable poor can get mobile phone to be in contact with loved ones and friends, who are in real need of contacts (especially in emergency) not like rich who can reach the other person to be contacted by anymeans with their money... Provided the volume of sales, the suggested retail price (rs. 500) is not too low and not very cheap like vegetables... and NOKIA can regain the market...

- different body colours
- different keys' font (classic Nokia Sans vs. new Nokia Pure)
The specs also note slightly lower weight of the 103.

It's good to have the simplicity of a monochrome display since it will not take too much battery power and I agree with the guys here that an MP3 player and a memory card slot would have been nice. Dual SIM? you won't need it if this phone is affordable you can have a phone for each SIM.
