i've gone through almost all of nokia's entry-level units: the 1100, 1110 (and most of it's variants), the 1200, and now, the 1202... i would have to say that this is the sleekest base phone they have put out to date... the backlight is a bit dimmer than the 1112's, but i just love the bigger keymat layout. it's really helpful for touch-texting (which i do while i drive) and for those quick-reply situations you can't just avoid sometimes. battery life is excellent like its predecessors, however, like what most of the people here are complaining about, i hate the speaker. it robs you of every aspect of a "private conversation" cuz about 4 or 5 people near you would be able to actually hear what is being said to you clearly. anyways, it uses the same OS as the above mentioned phones, albeit the scrolling seems to be a bit faster now, especially with the main menu. again, like most entry level nokia phones, texting is a breeze thanks to it's quick-response message editor, calls are easily made thanks to its large key pad (which again, is also what makes its SMS feature top notch) and yes, you still get a free torch on top of it. the back cover also seems to have a rivited design to reduce the chance of it slipping. looks like the had to upgrade the design for practical, heavy duty use, especially since this phone is aimed at the low budget/starting market. overall you'll love this phone because, like what's printed on the box, it'll make you go "discover the power of simplicity" :)
the phone is very reliable.

Best phone for messaging.....
i love this pretty,cute handset...
I bought 1202 a week ago, these are my views about this phone -
1. Simple styling
2. Light weight
3. Comfortable key pad
4. Good battery life - gives a talk time of ~4 hours
1. Poor speaker quality (loud speaker)
2. Handset mode sound is very high, the person next to you can easily hear you!
Otherwise among the other entry segment phones, this is quite good and a value for money!
The Nokia 1202,
really does'nt have anything to offer,
except that you can make calls and read texts,
typing text is a problem cause when you press the 8 key, 0 key also gets pressed.
in simple words this is the cheapest cell phone by nokia. the screen is just so childlike, the minute you buy it, the minute you detest it, and i feel it's like my money went down the drain.
but still in camparision is it is one of the better 1xxx series phones.
its nice phone,slim and trim ,light weight,long battery back up.
Guyz I Just bought it as second phone I am not having any problems its nice slim and smart :)
