Really cool phone, glad nokia put a FM transmitter in it. Only for $30, battery life is excellent too! Great backup phone or good for taking in rough countries.
great phone for someone who really needs phone but nothing else
and i am sure it would last for 10 years
I have lost 9 phones and i have finally decided to buy a Nokia 1280 phone they better steal this one quick i will feel no pain for sure.cool phone

I think this may be the last monochrome-display phone from Nokia. They've perfected these phones to such a high degree, it was surprising Nokia 1202/1203 had such reliability issues. Hopefully they will be solved in the 1280.
yes it does have txt message because it supports T9 and T9 is a text message technology
Thank you Nokia for reviewing Long Lasting battery baccup moblle
Cheap phone made for people who cannot buy a more expensive phone. The production costs for Nokia are probably a dollar or two but they will sell this for a profit smashing $20.
a job well done. i will be the first to buy in Fiji. simple and and easy to use for frequent users.
Joshua, 14 Nov 2009Again, you don't understand the purpose of this phone, and just keep bashing the looks of it.
... moreSo, let me say using examples:
Try using the N900 on a trip to Africa. Stolen or just damaged in the desert, in the rain, in the hot weather, humid weather. Try that on the Amazon. Or give it to Old McDonald on his Kansas farm... I bet he will drop it on the dirt on the middle of the field making it unusable.
OK, that's it.

It's a rugged phone of sorts. That's why it looks different. That's why it looks "fat" and "ugly" for some. It's supposed to stand dust and scratches much better. And with the build materials they used, they made a 20 euro phone.
And it's supposed to be shared by different people (think farm employees), with different phonebooks. That makes it a 5 euro phone to some small businesses.
I'm sorry if I sound too harsh saying this, but you have no idea of what you're talking about neither you know the purpose and build philosophy behind it.
Good thing we have plenty of cell phone choices. Samsung, like you said. And I'm buying the N900. We all win! No need to bash this one. :)
So there you have it. That's the reason. ;)
yo nokia, 06 Nov 2009no Wi-Fi ? no QWERTY keyboard ?
XDhei yo nokia..
wake up bro...
what do u xpect from this green and basic phone??
qwerty keyboard??!! and mp3???!!.. think green buddy
guys.. this phone, i think its good for a secondary phone..
jus the look i think.. its bad nokia.. pls..
simple phone with a horrific look.. i agree that look does matter
this is evrey thing you need if you want to talk on the phone. simple and robust, cheap and easy to use. i work in a car shop and all the workers here use this kind of phones (ex:1100) because they do what they wore ment to do, talk.
and at low price, some small bussines will buy these phones for their workers.
This phone will be awesome phone for secondary phone.
On this phone you don't need a more powerfull battery,it's enough this battery that Nokia ships with them. I think for a long time,we got a good and cheap phone for calls and messages...Radio with a 3.5mm jack is an extra option...For around 25-30 euros this will be a awesome piece of hardware...
