Since when i bought this phone on Monday 31/07/2006, it has never let me down. It falls down very hard but still works. Battery charge lasts up to 96 hours when in total use.
I can tell this is the best phone if you are looking at the durability.... You throw this phone from any story of the building and you will still have it working... used it when it was first launched for few days and ripped it to the core....
Had mine about 3 1/2 years, second hand.
It's ugly but you can throw it across the road and it won't complain.
I think it had a stroke at some point last year - it forgot how to display the time (leaving a blank area), but it has recoverd this ability.
Sometimes, when one particular person texts this phone it resurects a text from last year as apose to through-putting the actual message. It also does interesting things when it recieves texts in a format to which it's unfarmiliar....
Battery life is great, never is it ever a worry on long trips.
Was planning on getting a new mobile whenever I exceeded 4000 points on it's 'rapid roll' game but I'm beond that point and have currently decided that it'll be kept until it's dead - which unfortunately looks like I'll be nursing it on for a very long time.
The buttons are great, texting is fast and you can train yourself to do it with out looking (try doing that with an Iphones touch screen).
Recommended for anyone who doesn't care that it is just a phone.

i bought an old one of this, 2nd hand, for temp use, now i love this phone better than my e72. but the problem is it has no keypad light, i dont know its because this is old and broken keypad light, or because its in the model. can someone verify?
Kunal, 09 Aug 2010I have purchased it 5 years back and still it is working very well. Whole-heartedly I like it.... moreI agree with Kunal......I've also been using this phone for some time & love its performance.....battery life; easy handling, really loud speakerphone.
Wish Nokia would restart making this phone!
