I love this phone...i bought it as a second-fiddle phone to my Nokia N73 Music...just to make and receive calls...it's got great battery life, the radio is good, and it's compact. It doesn't get heated up too quickly over long calls, so all in all, it's a good buy.
The issues i found with it are, the response of the phone to typing SMSes is very slow. I type quite fast, and when i look at the screen after pressing the keys, the word takes a little time to appear on the screen, and this gives a very sluggish feel to the interface. There are no wallpapers on this phone, and the default screen looks drowsy as a result.
The radio clarity is decent, as is the clarity of the handsfree. It's got a good screen size and look, however, its biggest drawback lies in the ringtone department. They're much too soft and unclear.
This phone is perfect for people looking to have a good back-up phone for their high-end phones, or those who're travelling, and wanna keep the battery of their main phone in-tact for music/camera use.
Overall, i give this phone 7.5 on 10 wrt price, features, use, value for money, and design.
Hope you find this post useful..Enjoy! :)

My wife called me and asked the same question and I could not answer her, neighter was this info to be found on Nokias support page nor in the user's manual, that b.t.w. seems to focus more on how to identify non-genuine batteries or what you should not do with your 1650, rather than help using your phone. At last I found out by trying with the Nokia standard procedure for the keylock. Switching the keylock on and off is made by pressing the upper left key (-) and the star key (*) in sequence. If you are too slow, it won't work. You can also set an automatic keylock and delay time in the "phone settings", that is mentioned at page 48, but nothing about the manual locking.
I hope this post doesn't count as an "Unlocking discussion" in the "Posting rules" :-)

1650 have Cambodian language in my country.. really cool for people that can't read English...
When i'm typing textmessage, it doesn't put it on the screen immediately, but it has a delay of about a second. Second of all, I don't like the 'agenda' because you can't put in birhdays (like on my old secondhand phone, the 3510i) or repeat any of the 'memory-helpers'. (Sorry for my bad use of the English language here, don't know how to it's called). Third of all I really don't like that you can't let the phone automaticaly remove old agenda memory helpers, like on the 3510i. The games are great, especcially Beach Rally. And it's really really cheap.
Good handset, Radio is too slow..
Screen is good but no wallpapers.
Battery is excellent
The front look,the display and the grid dispaly give it style.
Ringtones are not loud n clearer upto Nokia standards,centre torch button is hard to press simply to say keypad is not comfortableplus backside look is like Nokia 1100 means like some ordinary black n white phone.What I like is display,torch,fm in 2000Rs.Nokia should give 1.5 year warranty on phones purchased from it's counters.
A good basic phone, decent display excellent battery life. Keypad is not good, torch is there but it is not as bright as the one in 1200 or 1208 because it is set too far from the glass cover. I mean it is deep inside unlike 1200 or 1208 and it sort of blocks the light. I removed the cover and found it was equally bright to other fones but the moment I put on the cover it was reduced to half. Faulty design, it cud have been better. Key pad is not precise U need to press exactly in the centre and thus typing is not as fast as one wud want. Ringtone quality is not satisfactory. It is niether clear nor loud enough. U have to keep the vibration on while carrying it outdoors in yor pocket otherwise U can miss a call. Battery is excellent lasts for more than three days after playing games a lot and even using the torch and making calls. This is the biggest plus point of this phone. Radio on the Loudspeaker plays quite well indoors.
peerhapz, 27 Jun 2008how could i lower the volume wen i am using the FM radio?pressing the centre button towards the left decreases the volume and towards right will increase the volume while listening to Radio thru earphones or inbuilt loudspeaker. Same applies for the in call volume both for the earpiece as well as the loudspeaker.
