Does the Nokia 108 have the any-key answer feature? I really care for this feature on all the cell phones I intend to buy.
Assure, 31 Mar 2014Nok'ia is such experienced manufacturer of cells, but does Silly things n each model, first al... moreHas anyone found a headset that pairs with the 108? My beloved Bluedio (grabs anything in range) can't.
I mean a real 'hands free' not a gismo that needs me to poke my finger in my ear (finding a button)while driving. Fair to say the phone is incredible value for money and apart from lack of volume it 'ticks' all the boxes, but if I can get a real working headset I would be delighted, cheers, Wrinkly.

When capturing video from the phone, making correctly-oriented video captures mean you need to rotate your phone 90° counter-clockwise. This phone doesn't have accelerometer to be able to set the correct video orientation for you.
For fixing videos permanently, you may have to re-encode them with rotation settings, or slap an orientation/rotation flag to its metadata. (please consult Google for that, there are many ways)
muds, 21 May 2014iam very brand concious,, bit confuse to buy nokia 108 bcz so much varity of fune available in... moreAlthough I admit it has dumbed-down features compared to older Nokia models, some of the statements here are not true or not entirely true.
-It does have keypad lock, only with a different keystroke (Power Key -> Left Selection Key/Top-left Key) compared to earlier Nokia models (Menu key -> * key). Took me awhile to get it though.
-It has an option to determine how long the backlight stays up, though provides only two options: Normal is 20seconds, Extended is 30 seconds. Normal is already considerably short enough to save you some battery, although Extended is too short, in my opinion. ...It does have this issue of the low-light backlight remaining on though.
-Switching from General to Silent and back is a breeze (hold # key), although yeah, switching to other profiles could take longer.
-You can set your wallpapers to something else besides stock wallpapers, though pictures are rotated 90° clockwise, and the resulting picture quality for the wallpaper isn't good. (introduces obvious JPEG artifacts and discoloration)
Inbox: If I am not mistaken with the count, the Inbox can store only up to 200 SMSs, SIM messages excluded. Unlike Sent Msgs & Drafts, old Inbox messages do not get deleted when there is not enough space for the incoming SMS.
If you tend to send a large number of texts, this is /not/ the phone for you. Older Nokia models like C1-01 has more storage for messages than this.
iam very brand concious,, bit confuse to buy nokia 108 bcz so much varity of fune available in market with same price and more features,,, but,,

Fantastic phone for what it is:
+ Great audio quality (AMR-NB support)
+ Battery life
+ Simple calendar with reminders
+ Good keyboard
+ no voice leak like other cheap Nokias
+ no internet rubbish
This is the only cheap and simple phone that openly support the AMR-NB audio codec. The other one is Nokia 109, but that one is not available in my country.
Highly recommended for those who wants to talk, send sms and be waken up in the morning.
When I downloaded the videos they did not show straight up but were turned to one side, How do I fix this so that I will be able to see video correctly?

Both folders can contain only fourteen(14) 160-character SMS at any time. Segmented SMS or SMS more than 160 characters can also be saved, provided they don't exceed that limit, else it will delete the oldest SMSs until it has enough for the new one.
Composition: One SMS is maxed to 918 characters (6 concatenated SMSs in total).
Sent msg to my frnd,the send item folder the msg is display in special msg.why not display in contact name?
Worst phone by Nokia multimedia phone without internet doesn't have (assign navigation key).For this price you can go to another brand
its not good phone i dont know why dont nokia solve the software problem i purchase this phone last month and now its dead i submit this phone to nokia care
thinking, 26 Apr 2014is the sms threaded view of this like the one in blackberry? simple but you can see the past m... moreNevermind my first reply, sorry.
By threaded meaning "the conversation (past SMSs) between only you & the contact is viewable in one page", right?
Google search also says Yes, so this phone's SMS view is definitely NOT threaded.
Some substantial specifics I noticed:
-Compose: The wait time/time allowance before you can type a new character is around 600~750ms, much faster than the usual 1200~1500ms for phone keypad handsets I've handled. This allows for errors by doubling a character if you're not fast enough, but also allows for much faster typing.
With this, pressing the d-pad to cancel out this wait time does not exist here, and instead will make the phone proceed to which direction you pressed. (do reply if you have clarification, as I am not confident that my explanation is clear.)
-Drafts: Only 5 SMSs (of 918 characters) can be saved at all times. If you're going to save a message to a draft, and your Drafts already has 5 SMSs, the oldest one will be deleted to make way for the new one. SMSs view is sorted from oldest to newest.
-Sent Msgs: It can store only 14 SMSs. The oldest is deleted to make way for new ones. SMSs view sorted from newest to oldest.
