jvk, 12 May 2009does it have keypad lock?You lock the keypad by pressing top-left key followed by *. Alternatively, you can set up the top right key to activate the keypad lock.
Basically, the 1209 is a cheap mobile and you "get what you pay for", in this case, a deficient manual. Pity.

jhay, 01 Jun 2009havent experienced that, been using the phone for 5 months nowphone is very good but speaker problem
Just bought it as a simple replacement for my 5140i (broken LCD).
I love the simplicity of 1209, even the big pixel screen.
However, there is one big minus: Turning on a flashlight is a four step process! :(
On 5140i I could hold the # to turn on flashlight, 1209 I cannot do that.
Maybe someone find a quick and easy way to turn on flashlight?
Anonymous, 23 May 2009anoyone else having the same problem wid messaging?i have been using this phone for 5 months now, havnt experienced that yet.
I am user of NOKIA 1209. Overall its good looking cell, especially due to its flashlight but sometime it creates problem while sending SMS, cell shows "Message Sent" but actually message hangs. I consulted with connectors they said this is Cell's problem especially in 1209. However, after re-fixing of the SIM,problem vanishes automatically form sometime. But after some days this problem occurs again which compel me to repeat the whole drill again i.e. re-fixing of SIM.
jacky, 20 May 2009how can u do thatbefore you send the mssge, select sending options and select send later, type in the date and time you want to send the message
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!!!!
