Perfect phone when you have a more expensive model you dont want to get damaged. I am a Electrician and i own a Nokia 5800, when im out working i dont want my 5800 to get damaged so i got a Nokia 1208 to use when im at work, and i leave my 5800 at home.
i would reccomend this phone for the elderly , builders , electricians etc and also people that go clubbing and dont want the risk of loosing their phones.
with my model i have had 2 weeks battery with light usage and a few calls.
used heavily i get 4 days battery life.
one question for all you out there : Whats the difference between the 1208 and the 1209
my Nokia n95 crashed so while it's in the repair shop, I bought this fone to be my temporary fone. Simple and very easy to use, I agree battery life is long. What I don't like is just the font size I found it so big (it became 3 liner) but overall I like it, very light, slim and cheap.
wonderful phone, just bought my wife one as well. clear screen and intuitive menu
The life time of battery for tis phone is quite long,tis is the main feature that i like it.....
My uncle has this mobile phone. Very Good Mobile. It has a cricket game.
well recently i bought this cellphone and i am thinking it's a nice cellphone is cheaper and good mobile in my personal opinion nokia is the best on cellphones in this moment
Great little phone with a couple of interesting 'character' traits. On the two I've owned, once you get the "No space for new messages" warning the phone will not successfully send a SMS until you turn it off and on again, but you are still charged for the attempted sending. Also the "No Space" message stops all incoming SMS messages, but does not give an alert (tone or vibrate) and does not show up on the screen saver. Once you're used to it it's fine, but it's quirks make it a little frustration for the unaware.
A Jossssss phone.Very much easier to use and no extra complexity. Clear sound and good network. Long time battery life. I am enjoying this. Think people who have not enough money to buy expensive phones, should use it.
A little bit problem of this phone: It's keypad, gets thicker by time and by use. Then it looks like a pregnant woman, haha ha.
I really enjoy this little phone, I think it is good quality but lots of people look past these types of things because they might not be popular or have cool applications. Well I really dont think that way. This is a wonderful phone with nice applications and games too. I love the different profiles that I can customize, that way I don't have to keep changing all the settings, I can just change the profile instead. Small, portable, durable, well, its just a great phone and especially for first time cell phone owners.
the best of the best basic phone, nice dust proof keypads, has calendar, timer, reminder, alarm, games, you can even schedule txt mssges to be sent on a specific date and time, you can even screen your mssges, message will not show on inbox but it will appear on the screened mssges, its just like hiding your mssge. flash light also very useful, very small and slim design easy to carry, does not hang,battery is awesome!!!! it last for 3 days!!! best basic phone ever!!!!
i really like this phone..no gprs and no mms makes you save some money on your phonebill..a bit funnier than 1200
can anybody tell me wich phone to buy b/w 1209 n 1661.. n wich 1 batry life is mur!! wat abt voice clarity n network? plz rep to me here or on my ad firstname.lastname@example.org
I am about buying this phone for a backup, I love the phone but my question is that when will nokia do phones of double sim like China phones, if this phone is a double sim with memory card but without all other functions like bluetooth, camera and what have you i should have loved it most, we need good phone like this with double sim, all the same will still buy it due to your comments.
I got this phone after I broke my phone in half the Nokia 3555. The price of this phone was good and it is ery lite to handle and you can store it in your book bag or rather any where and nothing will happen to it. If it fell in the ground nothing will happen to it either. The design is nice and simple and easy to handle.
