Have the radio built in the Nokia 1661 the Radio Data System (RDS)?. My unit always ask me for write manually the station name, and get the name of the radio stations "automatically" is one of the main features of the RDS...
Thanks very much, in advance.
the problems with this phone are that it isnt very colorful & doesn't have a camera
if it seems to be nokia is best cellular company but now a days we are facing problem in your new cell phones especially in
the voice is not coming clearly in the real front speaker but its coming loud from the back speaker and talking privacy is distrubed..
so please check that problem out..
Never ever buy this phone, NEVER take it even for free. I had two within last 5 month, both purchased new, in sealed box. I bought first one in August and in December it locked up, erased settings and when you try to adjust the volume phone shuts of, erases settings and restarts asking for code (12345). Volume stays at min low, phone calls don't produce sound. I thought maybe cheap phone went bad and bought another one a month ago. 2 days ago same exact thing happened to a new one. I was not demanding at all, buttons quality, absence of camera etc. was fine with me for $20 I paid for this phone, I only wanted it as a phone, not even for texting. NOKIA SHOULD NOT EXIST AS A COMPANY, there are plenty Samsungs, Motorolas etc.

A high-end smartphone? ;)
But I don't like the phone either. It has aweful keys.
I got this phone second hand as a temporary measure when I accidentally dropped and broke my (truly amazing) SE K800i.
This phone only wins on price and is hopelessly basic. There is no camera, no data connectivity of any kind let alone 3G (yes, there is no obvious way to connect it to your PC even for flashing or unlocking purposes) and it doesn't even look that good. However, it does come with a headset and you can get FM radio but there is no RDS or autotune.
SMS is a bit hit and miss, which is a shame because Nokia used to be market leaders in that regard. Nokia's legendary T9 implementation is gone, replaced by a clunky mess which is slow and keeps guessing the wrong words and to just send a text you have to go through about four different menus (type your message, type in the number/search phonebook, actually try to send the message and cross your fingers). Following this, you may or may not get the Message Sent notification and I've had problems with texts taking up to two hours to arrive when sent to me. Mine is unlocked and I've tested it on Orange UK and Vodafone UK and the same problem is noted on both networks. There was never any delay on my K800i using the same SIM card.
However, call quality is fine as is the battery life. With moderate use I can get four days out of the battery.
I wouldn't recommend buying this phone at full price as, quite frankly, you can buy a better phone second hand for not that much more money. This phone isn't worth it and Nokia themselves have other budget handsets which look much better and have way more features.
This phone is aimed at "developing markets" which makes it so surprising that it's even on sale in the UK.
this is very cute cell but one thing is not satisfied that there is no mem.card option and camera is also not there.but its ok not neccessary of cam..but if card option is there means it is useful while travelling time...
Well, I've had this phone since June 2009 and it has restarted only once, the battery still remain strong after 2 days....worth buying for only Taka 2900 but the main disadvantage of this phone is sound quality is poor and the amount of light the torch provides is not sufficient.
really? Ive never had a problem with the keypad. as long as you push directly on the key you want, you should'nt have any problem.
This is one of the cheapest phones available today on the market!
Pretty solid, dropped mine on the ground and it still works perfect
Battery pretty good, lasts several days on a single charge
Has a radio and flashlight (at this price, wow!)
Call quality is reasonable, never had a dropped call yet!
Considering the price - nothing.
Some people said here that they have problems with phone restarting.
I used mine for at least 4 months now and never had that problem.
If you don't have any more money - this is the phone to buy.
But don't expect it to have features like camera, internet, and MMS.
You need to buy more expensive phone to have that.
Sometimes I wish I had a camera on my phone, but I can't afford it.
Anonymous, 18 Dec 2010i have this but its speaker and loud speaker sounds low rest is good........somebody stoled my mobile .LoLzZZzz :(

Anonymous, 21 Dec 2010i have the nokia 1661. how do you lock out the key pad so you do not dial by accident.thx.david.Hi David - Lock the phone by pressing Menu then * key (asterisk). You can set a security code by going to Settings / Phone Settings / Keyguard Settings / Keyguard Code. Default code is 12345. Then you can reset it if you want. Josh
