I bought this phone for my mother, I received it today, and the phone is above average. A lot of people complained that the ringtone volume is low, but that's not true. Its only low (in fact very low) when you are trying the ringtones, but when actually a call comes the ringtone is loud enough to get your attention. Also the in call volume is pretty decent too, not low by any means, in fact I quite like it, and the quality is not very bad too, its good for phone of this price.
But I absolutely hate the UI and the colour choices all along. White fonts on Black background is just terrible to my eyes.
In any case, there is one thing I find typically annoying, and mother is complaining that she can't use it, its how you put the phone to Flight Mode. I mean seriously you need to do that many steps to activate Flight Mode? Couldn't they just put it under the Power Off key, instead of putting Bluetooth there?
Also I can't remap the navigation keys, they are set with their default actions, and there is no way to change them, or am I wrong?
everething is good, except the sms format.. there is no inbox and outbox. all sms became one format like smartphone..
also we can't download & uninstall games.. huhh...
How can i remove the text Message from auto show in the initial screen???
sabbir ahmed, 08 Jun 2015Is Nokia 215 have both front earpiece speaker and back loudspeaker unlike Nokia 101 which have... moreHi Sabbir, this phone doesn't have voice leakage like Nokia 1280 or Nokia 101. It is an up to date candybar phone, its battery is OK ! Signal streng & voice clarity is good. In comparison with Nokia 206 , 208, 220, 225 i think that it is better. .especially its price is affordable, it has build in Opera Mini (running so good on 2G), Flashlight, screening list , thin and less heavy. .
but ! If the next model of candybar phone has best camera , i will go for it.
Finally Nokia 215 dual sim (optional dual sim) is a good one, i did not get any problem yet.
Please can anyone tell me if this phone has voice leakage? 'cause nokia phones with speaker at the top tend to have voice leakage due to the earpiece and speaker are only one, like nokia 1280 has voice leakage

Saravanan, 29 May 2015Hi... NOKIA 215 supports up to 1000 Contacts - with only Name and Phone No. as Data. No other ... moreHi Sarawanan, thank you for your info, yes of course i checked the contact : it has only name & phone number. Anyway its not a serious problem : i use it just for a secondary phone . . .i really like phone design & its specification , it will be great if it can be upgraded in the near future (
best camera , wifi )
Just Nice.....Fast browsing...Facebook...Good quality of both sound n display...good battery backup...Much much better than 220&225,metro 312...Looks Smart
How much battery backup does this phone deliver if you are using it continuosly? Plz say any users....
How come Nokia again, and another 105 Nokia. Microsoft can not survive with out Nokia International Recognition. What's all the fun about. Nokia is still revered in minds. No body will buy low end ones with MS name.
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2015Hi does the 215 have call screening ?Call screening = black list right ?
I did not try it but i'm Nokia 215 user , i found it in Contact.
First go to contact - Option ,then scroll to buttom : you will see Number Screening. It is to stop unwanted call.
me, 01 Jun 2015just wonder..is it possible to browse with both sim 1 and 2 ?Hi , i think you can browse internet by using any sim card. First press and hold the button below ( sim card management) then go to sim setting - Mobile data - Preferred Sim ( Sim one or Sim two).
