All modern phones have charging option through USB-even 'if' it is a drawback, all modern phones are to be blamed, not just 130.
1) You could have a point there. But just like me, I reckon you have not used 130 personally (or of a friend's), so we are both in same court - so only a person how has used both 108 and 130 can advice better.
Dude, I already read that before you did. And still Charging PERMANENTLY through laptop/pc via USB Cable is not recommended (You can find that too in any user manual of Nokia or any brand). It's an Option only because of this:
"You can use USB charging WHEN a wall outlet is not available.
DATA can be transferred WHILE charging the device.
The efficiency of USB charging power varies significantly, and it may take a Long Time for charging to start and the device to start functioning."
Yeah, you can charge because your transferring data. But when you are done? it's better/recommended to charge on outlet, Not on pc/laptop (Else, if you wanna ruin your cp).
Because it's faster on the Outlet and SAFER than via USB Cable always.
When it comes to RAM still, you'll see after a year. Your 130 will be lag due to lack of RAM (RAM is important although it's basic phone. I KNOW it's basic man, but still; my point is 107/108 Have RAM, 130 Doesn't), than Nokia 107 and your 108 does.
can any one tell how much numbers can be stored in a single name in contacts

I have personally used Nokia 108; one thing i remember-though it is basic set, yet if you are scrolling through all your contact list (like press and hold the 'down' button on mobile), it does flicker from time to time, but never shows any lags (like in older sets like Nokia 1616 which I have also used).
So the reason to say all above: if you do the same to Nokia 130, does it lag? If it does not lag, then seriously, having or not having 4MB Ram does not make any difference to me.
Kindly provide more insight..

For me, the capability to charge via a microUSB charge is important as I don't want to roam with a Nokia (small pin) charger and a microUSB charger for my phones. One charger should be in a position to charge all my phones.
Regarding the USB charging facility, dude, please refer to the OFFICIAL Nokia 130 user manual (and not some dubious websites).
The OFFICIAL Nokia 130 user manual states as follows:
"Tip: You can use USB charging when a wall outlet is not available. Data can be transferred while
charging the device. The efficiency of USB charging power varies significantly, and it may take
a long time for charging to start and the device to start functioning."
Regarding the RAM (or lack of it), it makes little difference to me, as long as it functions well enough for my requirements.
For me, the Nokia 130 is clearly a better option than the Nokia 107/108 for quite a few reasons. Use the "Comparison" facility of this website to compare the Nokia 130 with the Nokia 107/108.

But my point is, 107/108 can perform better than 130. Simply because they have RAM. And I know 107/108 still uses Pin charger, but no problem w/ that. By the way dude, it is not recommended to CHARGE Any Phone on Laptop/PC through USB Cable. Why? hahah! ask Nokia or Google.

Hence, the Nokia 130 can charge through a normal microUSB charger or even via the computer USB port.
The specifications information by gsmarena regarding the USB charging facility for the Nokia 107 is wrong. It uses the small Nokia pin charger.
This doesn't have threaded view in messages, was disappointed. Otherwise, its a good phone..
jamescz, 20 Oct 2014No ROM & RAM. Therefore this Nokia 130 is lag, when you reach maximum text messages in inb... moreKindly note that this is NOT a smartphone, but a bare basic mobile phone. As long as it can store a decent number of text messages (say 100-200) and does the basic tasks, does it really make a difference if the Nokia 130 has RAM or not?
Please do not assume that the phone will lag just because it has no RAM/ROM. This phone is programmed to do the bare minimum tasks.
If you have a problem with that, please consider some other phone.
I have been using this phone for about a week and it is a great second/backup phone. My main phone is the Lumia 1320.
Yaman, 19 Oct 2014can I make my favorite (any) song as ringtone?? does it support this feature or not?? ThanksYes, I think you can.

>>Plastic keypad? are you sure it has plastic, it looks a lot like rubber keypad.
No ROM & RAM. Therefore this Nokia 130 is lag, when you reach maximum text messages in inbox/outbox/sent items etc. And I don't think that Plastic keypad can last 1-2 years. Nokia 107/108 has RAM and Tough keypad.
