Mirju, 22 Jul 2011I have one of this mobile i like this mobile but it crashed Sad to hear that you nokia had crashed. By the way, do you still have with you your ear piece set. I lost mine. Let me know if you do.Tq
i got this mobile and i enjoyed it really becoz
set have no problem and
but its one draw back is that its speakers are on back side
i cant understand this reason of nokia
Great Phone! I prefer this over the luxury or the "overloaded" in feature phone. =) This will last a lifetime. =)
I used 1616 for three months. Previously i have used Nokia's many Nokia bottom line phones and always satisfied with features and performance against the offer price. But i tell you that this phone has disappointed me too much. The fundamental objective of any phone is voice communication and for that they provide speaker for hearing. In this model, to cut the prices, the company has installed just ONE speaker for Loud Speaker function and HEAD piece function. Due to this there are two problems. First this the poor quality of sound and that why you don't hear clear voices even if you are using the best network and the other is the sound escapes from the back, which means either you have to cover the back holes while speaking for flip the phone when you speak which is very odd.
The above stated reasons forced me to sell this mobile even at thorough away prices and now i have got a new X1-01.
I don't recommend you to buy this cheap but noisy phone.
why put up with nokia when there are gazillions of better phones to choose from

Great low price phone. The torch is really handy. Good battery lasting time. Downside is that, this cell phone hangs and restarts frequently which is really unexpected and annoying....
Just got one of these & find it to be the handiest & most utilitarian phone I've used,so far. I highly reccommend the Nokia 1616 as a replacement unit if you already have a monthly T-Mobile account. More frills than first meet the eyes : ) The flashlight is great, too.
