I am very hopeful about this set as-
I was using a Nokia1600 before this,it had very good battery,fantastic signal reception in poor network areas, simple and fast interface and was sturdy.It didnt die but i sold it as i got bored with it and for lack of proper calender, just to realise later that i had made a mistake.A motorola flip fone i got after 1600 had lesser battery life and sluggish messaging. a samsung had nice battery but amazingly no reminders on that fone. I needed it. a sony ericsson set had marginally poorer signal reception and poorer battery.When i started searching for my beloved 1600, nokia had stopped marketing it. Now i see that this phone has same interface. I hope though its bit thicker, it has same excellent signal reception abilities and very good battery (calender there now).
jameski, 23 Jan 2008No 3G, not Quadband, no Wi-fi, no GPS, no Camera, No MP3 Player, No Memory Card Poor Phone.... moreMy dear friend, you have forgotten some more features this set is lacking-- blender, coffee maker, air conditioner, mosquito repeller,washing machine...
I have this phone since a week now- I went through webpages and reviews before purchasing this.So I am absolutely aware of what features I would get and also what is lacking in this set.(I see lot of people cursing this phone for lack of camera,wifi,bluetooth,music,beauty etc..etc..But if they r disappointed about a feature which nokia never claimed its there on the set, then they r either illiterate or they are retarded.) What i think is- a mobile phone should have-
1. small and convenient to carry size
2. good signal reception
3. Good battery backup
if it has a fast,stable software,its very nice bonus.
All other features are add ons and luxuries.I would say this set has most of above desired features. I have used 25+ phones before this and many sets with exotic features were either unable to catch signals when i desperately wanted to make a call or the battery just drained out during a long journey or just broke when dropped accidentally.So ultimately i realised I needed a reliable handset equally as much as a smartphone.So i carry 2 phones now. E51 and this. most of calls and texting is on this phone. and till now its not failed me yet.I liked 1600 too very much but it lacked a proper calender.But this set seems to have solved the problem.Nowadays even a manual labourer carries a mobile phone. so showing off ur mobile is not a great fashion statement anymore.There r shortcomings like- slightly difficult flat keypad and occasional messaging problems.But which high-end smartphone is perfect?more the software features, more sluggish they r and hang and drain battery.
I would recommend this to anyone who shares my viewpoint.

thanks for this web.
if you're looking for i-want-features-and-i-want-it-all stay away from this place pls coz ur jst saying non sense comments. obviously it doesn't have high-end features but it has the essentials. the basic ingredients for a good fon is that it can make calls and send text msgs, plus great battery life, this fon has those so naf sed.
if ur looking for cameras or music gadgets don't go buying a fon, buy a digicam or ipod, stop looking for it in a fon.
