there have been a number of software updates to correct the phonebook name problems.
Check the phone software by keying *#0000# (needs a SIM in) If version is less than 07.02 then you may get these problems. A nokia service centre can give you a free update if phone is in its warranty period.
Dont know why your SMS's you are receiving are not showing the senders name at the top of the screen. If the persons name is in your phone contacts list then it should show their name when you receive a message from them. I have no probs with my NOKIA 1600.....
Can I get a name above my recieved SMS's in stead of just the number of someone in my adress list????
This is a great basic phone which i currently use. The keypad is very comfortable and is one of the best i have ever came across; i only wish it was a bit wider. The ringtones are loud and when i am outdoors i have phone on max volume with vibrate and i never miss calls or texts. The most important features of a phone for me are A COMFORTABLE KEYPAD and LOUD RINGTONES and this phone does the job! The ringtones ascend on this phone but i have not found it to be a problem. If you are want a no frills basic phone then the NOKIA 1600 is for you. Avoid the nokia 1200,1208,1650 phones as their keypads are terrible and the ringtones are not loud enough.
The service manual is online here:
This is a good basic phone for someone who just wants a mobile at a cheap price without all the gizmosos. Easy to use and its loud speaker is a boom in noisey enviroments. And most people buy a phone primarly anyway to make calls and texts. On the negative side it doesn't look good. The glassy looking keyset is bad. On looks the similar basic 1112 at the same price beats it by a mile.
This a phone for the person that is not too carefull with phones. Have mine going on two years now and it's been a rough time for this phone. Mine has the scratches and dents to show that it has fallen, been flung and tossed countless number of times. This on the plus has not affected its funtionality one bit. Even though i own series 40 and 60 Nokias which i love dearly, i dear not put them through the thinng that my 1600 went through. Although mine never got into a bucket of water i hear that blowdrer is ll it takes and you're good to go.
its really a good fone but one drawback it does not have a fm radio and no gprs,but it is a sturdy phone with a good battery life..........
My net10 version of this phone has Rapid Roll, Dice Games, and Adventure Quiz.
i had that phone before. very bad condition for those who like to send and receive sms. cause sometime only receive part of sms. it's cant get full sms if more than 2 pages softly.also there are no calendar. so what can we hope by using this phone. not much.
This is my current handset, very cheap and sturdy. It lacks of course goodies like camera or mp3 player but as I would never use funtions like that i dont miss it. Some people before me already commented with problems regarding showing the name of a person calling you. I got same problem though ... yet it doesnt bother me that much as I only have it with one person all other persons its fine. Lovely handset if you want a plain and simple one, of course not one for the tech crazy.
I have bye a nokia 1600 type:RH-64, Code:0525378, Emei:357946/00/190954/1, CE168. but it is problem in charging. not charging from the common charger only on desktop chorger. plz give me an idia or mehtod to correct the problem.
thanks to all of you
I had a problem that whenever somebody called me or sent me a text message, I could see the person's telephone number but not the name of that person - even though that person is clearly listed in my contact list. I later found out that the problem was that I had duplicate names on my phone or sim card contact lists. Once I deleted the duplicates, the problem was solved.
i had this fone in 2006 i sold it for 2,500 pesos only and i miss it coz it so cute and handy!!! .... but the features are lame ... and other than that its so cooooooool!!!! ....
well kori it is normal to have
+63905xxxxxxxxx becoz the # is to long
