There was a time when people were crazy about the Nokia 8310 because at that point of time Nokia N 95 8 GB was not avaialable & no one even knew at that time that N 95 8 GB would come out one day, otherwise people would have continued using their Nokia 3310, until Nokia N 95 8 GB came out.
Anyways, that is the past, now with regards to Nokia 1200, this phone is mainly for people in the third world countries who cannot afford 2 square meals a day & who think that a phone is a luxury & having burger at MCDonalds is a luxury. And not to forget it is also for people, who would just like to have a basic phone, just for making & rec'in phone calls & sending & rec'in sms & nothing more than that. This phone is right for them. So other people please do not come here complaining that Nokia 1200 does not have a cam or mp3 player, go & check out other phones which have these features & post your valuable opinion there.
Good job Nokia, it is really nice of you to continue making various entry level phones & also high end pohones on the other hand.
This would help you to survive & remain No.1 in the mobile phone industry around the world.
its about time they came up with another torch phone since the sudden death of the 1100. its a simple and durable phone (not as rugged as the 1100 but..) i love it.
all you people complaining about nokia's idea of making these entry-level phones, get this: NOT EVERYONE wants the same shoes, NOT EVERYONE wants a 10MP camera, NOT EVERYONE wants a BMW, and NOT EVERYONE wants an iPhone. so stop complaining and if you are after TOY cellphones with mp3 and camera and bluetooth and all that then get out of here and go to the N-series forums where your comments would rather be appreciated!
Hi guys I just want to draw yours attention regarding the 1200 NOKIA phone .its really good phone I just bought this phone week a go .and I didn’t charged again during the week again. Most in the Asian counters will prefer to use this sort of phones .although it doesn’t means that they don’t have money .but know a days if you look back in to couples of months then u imagine that the crime are to increasing around these countries so that’s why this is nice ..Not expansive..And GOOD …NO DOUGHT..
NOKIA CONNECTING PEOPLE

I mean,even S/E J120 is better than this...
is it true dat the keypad number dissappears after short usage???? plz lemme kn
Guys .. I have a Sony Handycam and a Sony 10 megapixel digicam. And as a rock music artist, i dont think i have to say what i use for music when im on the run or at home. Grow up guys. Why r u runnin after friggin 5MP camera phones with Mp3 and mp4 at stuff. These stuff r so friggin childish. A good cellphone must have:
- good long lasting battery
- simplicity and speed of usage
- good network catching
- lightweight and comfortable
and 1200 has all of this. This phone is not for you maniacs who consider N73 or N95 as their dream gadgets. You donno sh*t bout hi-tech gadgets. This is a real phone and does what real phones r supposed to do. This phone is for sensible people who have much better stuff to do in life than spend time on a beauty contest winning phone.
And yes ... not for poor countries. We rockstars use it too!
im from pakistan...would anyone tell me is nokia 1200 has exchangeable covers..plz respond
from previous poster: " the digits disappear after 1 month use." hugh, where has this phone been available for over a month? link?
also, which firmware and modelnumber do you have? type this on keypad *#0000#
very weak gsm it is disgrace for nokia
1. software is too slow
2. the keyboard is is versy soft material made
3. the digits disappear after 1 month use.
4. the microphone is not loud
1. the battery life is more than 7 days if you talk 20-25 min per day
2. it is water resistant - get in a glass of water and still works
i think this is probably one of the top phones for people who work in connditions that are very dusty etc.. perfect.. and eaven if it breaks no harm. 40 dollars is rubish
i have purchased nokia 1200 some days ago.this set is light weight and with long battery time near about six days approx.its flash light is higer than nokia 1100.its function of call tracker and time sms is so outstanding.now there is no tention of checking the timer during call because there is also available time tracker funtion.before calling any no you can set time between thirty seconds and up.atlast this is so cheep and handdy set.
this is a best ph in less budget but i want to know his sms memory because i want to buy this ph early plz clear my point
I have purchased this phone for Rs 2300 (38 US Dollars). its a combination of Nokia 1100 and nokia 1110. It has a flashlight on top which is activated by pressing the "Up" key. The keypad is also perfect. very smoth and easy for sms. and very light weight. the back of the phone is also stylish, the battery cover is of the color of phone body. so casing we can just change the front cover. Rest is same as that of Nokia 1110i. But the ringtones r not as load as that of 1110.
Very very goog set. Perfect for its price.
