I have 1661 with TMobile. The phone was working fine, now it asks for the security code every time and there are no ring tones available to choose from. Does anyone know how to fix this???

This phone is rubbish. Keypad too small and low ringtones.
As i mentioned below if you want a good basic nokia with comfortable keypad and loud ringtones then buy the NOKIA 2323 or the NOKIA 2330.
Hi plz can anyone tell me that does this phne have sms memory meter that is does it tell how many sms are there in inbox plz tell
I have a Nokia 1661 but the speed dial set up in the shop is incorrect. How do I change a number or name in speed dial I cannot find a delete key and the * button does not work with speed dial it only says ON Off Edit and Edit only says assign or back. Help would be appreciated
Plus points: long battery life, big sms memory. Negative points: very hard keypad, there is no numburing of messages in inbox.
Please people dont buy this phone.. please dont.. you will suffer like me.. I sold this phone within 3 days and bought Samsung 1210.. and Believe me samsung 1210 is 1000 times better than this piece of nokia's Sh*t..
The Problems in Nokia 1661
low ringtone volume
when i got to contacts by pressing the shorcut key it hangs.
msging is pain in a**
even its torch is so sick it comes out like a Horizontal Line.
YOU WILL WASTE YOUR MONEY IF YOU BUY THIS.. BELIEVE ME
if you are a Hardcore Nokia FAN still buy some other Nokia Phone Not this one.
Anybody wanting to purchase a good basic phone should NOT buy this phone !
I have recently tried a nokia 2330 in a shop and this phone is excellent.
The ringtones are LOUD, you will not miss a call.
Also the KEYPAD is comfortable with decent sized keys.
These are 2 important factors to consider when buying a new phone.
If you want a good basic phone then go for the nokia 2330. I think that the nokia 2323 is the same too as they are very similar phones so it should be a good buy as well. WELL DONE NOKIA AT LAST !
Hi, For this phone,, I can just say- Its excellent, superb..
if you want to buy a basic phone.. So pls go for this..

rab, 23 Aug 2009I bought the nokia 1661 yesterday and i have already decided to give it to a charity shop.
... moreto see the clock in powersaver mode, just hit the red on/off button.
otherwise, i agree that it's not the best keypad, but what do you want for the price? it's the cheapest phone that i could find, and it's actually quite sleek and works well for me so far. biggest complaint is that it creaks a lot as the back doesn't seem to fit properly. cheaply made in that respect, but it otherwise works well and is very inexpensive. eventually i'm going to upgrade to the new nokia 3720.

This phone is no good for me due to the very small buttons on the keypad. The keypad is soft to touch but it is no good for a mans big fingers.
Another problem is that the ringtones are not loud enough as stated on the nokia website and the vibrate alert is very poor. You will definitely miss calls outdoors with this phone. Also it is almost impossible to see the power saver clock in standby mode.
I will NOT be buying the nokia 1202, 1662 or 5030 either as no doubt the above problems will be in these phones as well and i would be wasting my money.
I currently use the nokia 1112 and the nokia 1600 and the ringtones are louder on these, the vibrate alert is much stronger in your pocket and the keypads are very comfortable with bigger buttons and you can easily see the power saver clock.
Nokia used to excel at making great basic phones like the 1100, 1110, 1112, 1600, 3410, 3510i etc.
NOT ANY MORE......!!!!!
