Very good bat life compared to other phones I've had...the text message feature stalls everyonce on a while but just deleting the inbox, sentbox, and outbox usually fixes that (or turning it off and turning it back on) plus, the flashlight feature it great (its saved me from a lot of near injuries in the dark) the call quality is alright and heck (it beat my razrv3 I used to have). Granted, it's not exactly the most feature-ridden device, but it works as a phone and texting device just fine!
The best basic entry-level phone I have had. Excellent all-around. Call screening feature is a plus.
Did the battery trick (for the auto-restart problem) by jim work for the 1208? Please report any positive answers!
Joseph, 23 Dec 2008the security code or the general code of Nokia 1208 is ''12345''is the security code also works with Nk 1200??
my battery can last up to 3 days woh...perfectly fine phone for me.......
i buy new 1208 phone but the phone has no network..how can i find the network..
My dad bought one of these a few days ago. Everything seems to be ok except for one thing. The phone was bought with Bulgarian language as a second language. In the settings of the phone i can change the language to English, German, Bulgarian and Automatic. My problem comes when i enter the address book and try to type a name-the input language stays Bulgarian. All of the names stored on the SIM card are typed and saved in English and now i cant look em up. Any idea how to change the input language?? I tried the # button but it switches to digits and bulgariand alphabet. Any ideas are greatly appreciated
you want a cheap phone, this is what you get, right.
i hv been using it for a year as my alternative back up phone. i like it, it is light and simple, i have accidentaly drop it many many time, but the phone is still functioning alright,
My phone when block wiht security code which i don't know reason, please I need a code that can unblock the other code i mean general code please Nokia 1208 any posibility for that please.
I think it is such an amazing phone> i had a D900i and it was stolen. so in the mean time I thought i would use a cheap phone.. well. i have never been happier.. the battery lasts so long. the only down side is that it does not support MXit. but well done Nokia. it is a fab phone
Yea!I'm also having the same problem!
Some times the message doesn't deliver...
And when i restart it after switching off the cell phone it works! Coudn't figure out what's the problem with it!
The sms memory is too low!
It can hold just 70 odd msgZ ..life threatening!
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2008I had this phone and it keeps freezing and then re-starting for itself. I do not know if this ... moretake the battery out of your phone and check the little brass connectors that the battery connects to.I had the same problem with a similar phone and it was just one of those connecters not extended up all the way and movements would break contact between the phone and the battery causing the phone to turn off and on.gently take the tip of your finger and slide it across the contacts to make sure they spring up properly.
nakedone, 14 Dec 2008I haave this phone as a seconardy one, and it's the beast basic phone I've ever seen. THE BATT... moreAre you sure you are speaking about the Nokia 1208? the battery in this phone drains very very fast, do not even last three days, and I am talking about very little talk time used on the phone.
I had this phone and it keeps freezing and then re-starting for itself. I do not know if this is a flaw in the manufacture of my phone. Its new, less than 6 months old. My friend also has a new phone like it and experienced no problems.
I haave this phone as a seconardy one, and it's the beast basic phone I've ever seen. THE BATTERY CAN GO ON AND ON AND ON! And that is JUST what I need.
I recommend it to anyone who's obsessed with simplicity and high-battery life!
crap! the battery drains so fast than the 1110i :P
i just bought this for my mom to use as an alternative phone.
text messaging on cramp keys. -__-"
Best basic entry GSM phone I have tried. BLC-5CA= 700mah while BLC-5C= 900mah still compatible with this phone giving longer battery life. Just for you battery-life freaks FYI
Maybe it's a result of too much text messaging, but the comments on this opinion site seem to be largely from users who are unfamiliar with the English language. How can I take a comment seriously from someone who can't spell or form a sentence? I'm not talking about OMG & LOL.I mean people that spew their thoughts all over the place and "have boughten a crappy phone and am return it". Credibility? I don't think so!
