it might not be fancy, but it works, its small, receptions good, practically indestructable (i've accidentally swam with mine for 10 minutes, got out, took it apart and shook water off, put it together and turned it on, worked perfectly. and its basically free
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2008i like 1600 my first set broke i want new set how i arrangethey have them at everydaycell.com for good price
Fricking fantsastic. I have a busy student life, and in my first year I went trhough 8-9 phones. I then bought this cheap model so if I lost it then so be it. 2 years on I still have it and it still works perfectly, ok albeit a bit scratched but the battery will still last me 3 days. Its a phone, buy a camera and an mp3 player if you want the rest of the stuff.
good enuf for normal use.....nothing new..had it 2006, work abuse phone and it held up through rain,snow,heat and london concrete hahahaha...now we have newer phones.
Ronald D, 05 Jun 2008I have a Nokia 1600. I can't send any messages from it as a message: Message sending error pop... morethats because of the bug mentioned below. apparently the phone cant send any msg if the sent items is full of pending msgs. clear your sent items. the msg shouldnt pop up.
I have a Nokia 1600. I can't send any messages from it as a message: Message sending error pop s up then after that a sending message process comes up. How can I have this problem rectified?
The latest version of this phone still has the software bug regarding the Sent Items where some messages remain in "pending" status even when they were in fact already sent. Once your Sent Items folder becomes filled with these "pending" items, you have no choice but to MANUALLY delete them one by one or you wouldn't be able to send any more text messages--a bug which has been around for over a year since firmware version 5.00 and was ported to the newer 1xxx series including the 1208/1209/1650 and the 2310. In spite of all the customer complaints, Nokia never fixed it.
The message settings are usually sent by your oporator/ network providor.
Nokia do not support this phone as settings differ from network to network. Best thing i advise is to call your sirtime providor.

I think the phone is great. It's a simple phone. It has a great battery life and good signal. All the basic features are there and I think it's perfect. I don't need all those extras.

why in the world do they dont have phone coverings.this phone is not worth my time or money.it is some bull crap!!!
I don't understand all the posts on low ring volume. Maybe old ones? Mine is new last week and is the loudest phone I have ever had, loudspeaker and ring and alarm, it actually will get you up, guaranteed.
I came from a long line of cell phones from the brick in 1985, to the Sony 900, a Treo 600 and my latest disappointment, the Ipac with Verizon (I now only use it only as my huge contact database as a PDA, as it syncs with Outlook on my computers) as well as over a dozen in between. They nearly all had more features, most were total garbage, didn't work well as a phone, buttons you can't operate well (like my Ipac), they crashed frequently and were slower than molasses, etc. I had my fill of bum technology that is not yet perfected. "The next model will be a good one with the bugs worked out" is never true, it is just as chock full of more new technology that is still not perfected and no good still. Voice calling that does not work, GPS that you need to have lunch while it figures it out, and Internet that takes the rest of the day to download.
I just wanted a phone that works well as a phone thank you. My underwater stylus 1030 digital camera is great for REAL photos and REAL movies, and my laptop works for all the rest very well. I could not be any happier now with this phone and service provider.
great basic no frills phone. Just what I wanted. Does anyone know how to set your area code so you don't have to enter it when you add numbers? This phone is free with consumer cellular with no contract and a 10$ a month plan, up to 1600 minuets for only $60 bucks and 400 for $30 a month. I love there service and the low cost.
Nah, this phone does not have any USB or MP3 stuff. It's a basic phone with basic features.
People mentioned the ring volume. The 1st ring is always quiet for somereason, but then every other ring after that is pretty loud.
To the dude below. I think the limit is 25meters. I don't think this phone can fly any higher than that.
This a good phone - if you are just wanting a basic phone. It last a long time & is very easy to use.
