GREAT basic phone.... alarm is very useful!.... best of all its cheap!
I bought this phone month ago and I am totally satisfied. I wasn't expecting it would be luxury phone, Its very basic comfy phone with battery up to 5 days. I would definitely recommend it.
Just Brought this from Mobilestore. I am disappointed !! Nokia 1616, this is Worst Creation of Nokia!
I have been using Nokia phones, since the time of 3310.
The Speaker is rear, it sounds better when used from back side. People at sorrounding can listen to watever you are talking. I must say the sound leaks.
subbu, 09 Sep 2010bt it has speaker at rear.. wt about dat?no problem ant that dnt worry
subbu, 09 Sep 2010bt it has speaker at rear.. wt about dat?Rear speaker. No privacy.
I hve nokia 1616 against with 1662 swap. i m n't satisfied for that because its keypad is very poor quality comparision with other nokia phones also 1662. Both nokia 1662 & 1616 mostly features are same. IN 1662 HIGH QUANTITY OF PRODUCT FAILURE eg. "Display spoting automatically comes when used the phone".
Its looking just like chineese mobile.
I m suggesting to Nokia plz. plz. plzzz............ whem u swapping any handset plz do needful against with costomer h/set u just give to extra advance features or updated features of h/set at same price of costomer h/set.
Don't buy this phone. The speaker is very bad. This phone use the same speaker unit for head and loud speaker. So when listen to the phone, the sound is like coming from the rear of the speaker (soft and not clear). Worst Nokia phone. The LG GB 106 is much better.
is nokia 1616 a good phone for backup use??
or there is better in same price range??
Phone Restart problem exists in my 1616 too.
Nokia care guy says, this phone has some problems and have been coming back often with software problems. However he also said atleast three more patches would be released in next few months to solve some of the regular problems in the phone.
Now the new problem after software update is, I am not able to open the new messages, if i try to open it, i am returned to the blank screen saver.
I did not expect so much of software problem in such a basic model of Nokia.
Great phone. sleek design, great screen display,themes given are fantastic. keypad feels rubbery and hard, ringtones given feel low on quality and sound.
Problem with contacts.I backup all contacts to sim. Selected contact memory as phone. but it shows sim contacts too. results no caller name while incoming, only number.
Selected memory as sim, but not worked. same ;(
No USB port for downloading ringtone. They are saying mp3 ringtone. But quality is poor.
its gr8 mobile battery timing iz very good n the diffrence btween nokia 1800 n 1616 is only of navigation keys ... bt all the features are same
there are much better talk and text phone than this. ill list down the goods the bad side of this cp.
Long Battery life 2-3days
Bright colored display
3.5mm (for the radio)
call cost options!!
can hold almost 250 text messages
Not good keypad (will build you some finger muscle)
Flashlight not that bright
SLUGGISH UI (not very responsive)
No text number indicator
the 1200,1208 are much better phones than this one.
1661 is WORST than this MIND You. if this one is sluggish WAIT TIL YOUVE TESTED THE 1661
Radio must have earphone for antenna
FOR TEXTING its quite hard bec. its slow
