I recently bought a Nokia 105 (2017). It came with a BL-5CB 800mAh battery and a mains charger.
An elderly relative of mine has an old Nokia 1200 which uses a BL-5CA 700mAh battery but that Nokia 1200 no longer charges its BL-5CA battery although the battery still works. I have tried the BL-5CA in my new Nokia 105 (2017) and it fits and the phone works. I tried plugging in the Nokia 105 charger for a few seconds and it seems to charge the BL-5CA.
I just want to know if the BL-5CA battery can be SAFELY charged in the Nokia 105 (2017). If it can, then I could buy another Nokia 105 for my elderly relative and that would enable him to continue using his old Nokia 1200 by charging its BL-5CA battery in the new Nokia 105 (2017), as well as being able to use the new phone too. However, I don't want to advise him to charge the BL-5CA battery in the Nokia 105 unless I have a bit more assurance that the difference in chargers would not cause the BL-5CA to explode or catch fire.
Your opinions welcome.
Bare essentials phone for working in tough environments when you can not continuously stress about your 'in the way' smartphone that might and probably will get damaged. Very few cost effective options remain for people who gets their hands dirty for work. Makes me sick to think what the world would be like if everything is focused on the fancy top elite folk who can nurse a smartphone 24/7 with little consideration for the bare essentials that keeps the actual wheels rolling. Clouds and virtual etc will blow over and crash but the rest of the 'lower level idiots' has to keep on serving the actual evil idiots about to ruin the planet. Have a nice life..
I expected from Nokia to make a Mobile phone, at least it should had , beside all these functions, Mp3, voice recorder, card slot , Bluetooth function without camera and antenna less FM radio.
Cause I am working in company that due to security issues they do not allowing.

JOAN, 03 Jan 2018does nokia 1050 2017 has chinese language?
I think the language portion is on region or country centric.
In India this phone has one international language English and probably 11 or 12 regional languages of India.
probably in China this phone have support for Chinese regional language.
