Because there are people like me who don't need all fancy and expensive gadgets.
After all, a phone is just a phone!
ugly phone! lack of many features and Nokia should have created atleast bluetooth or camera for this phone! a new phone but lack of many features which is soooo ugly! and the design looks like the old models of Nokia
I wonder why Nokia are still producing low end phones like the 1209. Okay, it's for beginners, fair enough but why still manufacture low end phones?
what's got to love about this phone! are you kidding me this phone is ugly! it lacks of many features including bluetooth, camera, Wifi, 3g etc. OLD PHONE! and whats the year today why create a old phone! Nokia should have atleast created a bluetooth or camera for this phone!
I LOVE this phone - it's one of the best looking handsets I've ever seen. I have been using a 8800 Sirocco which doesn't even compare to this little beauty.
As soon as this phone became available I sold my 8800 and got 3 1209's!!
As soon as I held the 1209 I knew it was a quality phone, the screen is colour and the buttons can be pressed - the technology is amazing. I have managed to hook up a 5mp camera to it with tape and bluetack and the picture quality is amazing.
The mp3 player is fantastic, tremendous sound quality, it only took about 3 minutes to actually fix my ipod to the nokia.
This is by far the most advanced and beautiful handset ever made--Nokia keep up the good work
for sure this phone is just low price bec. it has no features at all just only for texting which is ugly
No GPRS, No HSCSD, No EDGE, No 3G, No WLAN, No Bluetooth, No Infrared port USB, no camera! what u ugly fone! looks like the old brands of Nokia phones...
Whats the difference between Nokia 1208 & 1209? The same sucking sms memory (60 only)
The colour n da design luks gud.It wud hav been much better if nokia had added gprs feature in it like samsung c140 which is a basic phone like dis one.
no its not gd looking if you want a phone just to send sms and call buy and old phone then at least you get a good battery life
for its popularity it must have fm radio option. Also contain reasonable price.
no bluetooth, no camera, no edge, no 3g, very ugly phone! old fashion!
Not all people want to buy or have an expensive phone. And for some, to call and send sms is enough. It's a good fone for basic communication needs. I just do hope, they have finally done something good about the GOTO bug of its nokia 1208 predecessor. I like this one for a secondary fone. With its basic feature, its battery will surely last long on a single charge..
