i want to buy this phone for my dad but i am little confused to buy this or not
After seven years of using Nokia 1100, today I purchased a new Nokia phone, Nokia 206. In fact, I have sparing knowledge on electronic gadgets and I am not agile in using smartphones and others. I asked the Nokia dealer in my area to give me a basic phone, and having confidence on the shopkeeper I have brought home this Nokia 206. I am far more convinced at its user friendly features. Only that I am finding problem in sending short messages, because the basic key pad function in Nokia 1100 is not found in this, in the sense shifting from Alpha to Numeric and vice versa. Second the scroll function gives me a poser for it reverts to original position.
Some days ago I commented here that I had tested 2 Nokia 206, and both of them had a problem with the scroll keys: The first one had a defect in the "down" scroll key (after pressed, it returned slowly to the original position), and the second one had a defect in the "up" key (it was hard to press).
Now, I've just tested 2 more units of Nokia 206. Result: Both of them have the defect in the "up" key (it is hard to press). It feels as if it wouldn't reach the bottom, and in fact many times the phone doesn't detect that you have pressed the key. So, to use the key, it requires more effort than the other 3 scroll keys.
My conclusion, after testing 4 units, is that the defect in the scroll key is common in all units of Nokia 206. In other words, it is a wrong design (or a wrong manufacturing). I can't believe that nokia is selling a phone with such an usability problem. Can any owner of this model confirm the problem with the scroll key?
I'm not going to test more units of Nokia 206. I'm thinking now in Nokia 301 or 515. But I've read about the battery problems of 301. And 515 is too expensive. In addition, I don't like new 207/208 (specially the rubber keys). And 106/107/108 look like toys. So I will keep waiting for a new good classic nokia phone.
♡le_chu&am, 26 Dec 2013The keypads are very well spaced. The only thing i dont like with Nokia 206 is that if i want ... moreIf any one has out going calls problems ? He should go to sim manager in the main menu and set the fone on ask every time then this problem is solved.
