Shadbagh, 11 Dec 2016How many times you have To be Told No Whattsapp nothing else except what Icons available in me... morei was wondering exactly the same thing with you -how many times you will post and tell us the same things...
For example Samsung metro 360 is more expensive and doesn't have whatsapp ...
These are basic feature phones and since you can download java apps with 216 you get more than enough for just 39$ and everybody sees that.This is a dirty cheap phone.
None of the big brands like Nokia,Samsung e.t.c. released this year(2016) a phone that costs 39$ with whatsapp.It's the strategy of all the big companies and not only Nokias...
Can you name us a phone that is released inside 2016 from a big company like Nokia that have whatsapp and costs 39$? of course not...
it's obvious sir that you are wrong.
Can any body help me..in my set contact show in last name sequence...suppose contact name is pradip kumar..it is showing kumar pradip..and it cant be changed.i tried every thing..is there any solution of dis issue..bcoz of dis i cant find the contact by typing name..pl any body help me dis device become nightmare to me
Samsung metro 360 is more expensive phone than Nokia 216 and doesn't have whatsapp...
Why should 216 have whatsapp ?Could you answer us mr.director?(phrase the end)...
And why don't you write complaints to Samsung's page and you always complain only for Microsoft/Nokia feature phones?
Nowdays (2016)no big brand gives you whatsapp with 39$.
know it from now on...
Shadbagh, 11 Dec 2016How many times you have To be Told No Whattsapp nothing else except what Icons available in me... moreHow many times you have to be told that with 39$ not a single known brand includes whatsapp.Not Samsung not Motorola not Htc e.t.c.
If you know a big brand like Nokia that gives whatsapp with 39$ then go on and tell us...This is the strategy by all the giant brands.(i bet you won't answer because you can't find any answer as usual).
If you name a famous brand that gives whatsapp in a phone that costs 39$ then you will have right but if you don't then i have right...
So Why don't you write exactly the same complaints in the page of Samsung for example and you only write here?Samsung's feature phones don't have whatsapp in this price range too...
Why don't you name us the 2 Chinese phones you said you bought?(i bet you won't answer again because probably you are lying or because you are ashamed about the phones you have).
The rest that you write about Nokia-Hmd and foxconn we already know them by dozens of articles by Gsm arena and not from you.
I can understand why you wrote the phrase:''the end''.Because you didn't want to answer to you and prove to everybody that you are just a hater of Nokia/Microsoft feature phones.
just say that you hate Microsoft/Nokia and don't write all these nonsense everytime time.
We are tired of your lies and your hate and for everyone that can read you are just a troller and nothing more.That's the real end...Stop your propaganda against cheap Nokia phones,we are bored with you don't you understand it?
How many times you have To be Told No Whattsapp nothing else except what Icons available in menu. 40$ is obnoxious. Just wait for 500+ smartphone comes. Gone are days , when Nokia had monopoly,Hmd,Foxcom will invest and manufacture. Only Nokia will supervise and take totality. The End
Shadbagh, 10 Dec 2016This is last of MS Nokia shot! Afterwards Nokia under License be manufactured by Foxcom. This2... moreYour comment doesn't make any sense.
Nokia 216 is feature phone with physical keyboard and of course with totally different price than Nokia android by hmd/Nokia/foxconn which is a smartphone and that surely will have a higher price.
Don't tell us what to do again because in the past you wrote that you were user of Nokia 230 and you told us that the camera was just filling the blanks and nothing more.
You also told us that you cannot download apps with 230...
Fortunately i didn't hear you and i bought 230 and i found out that it has an excellent camera for 2 mp and also i downloaded hundreds of low java apps;mostly games...The games were excellent,the loudspeaker was perfect and the phone had the best build quality in it's price range although i would prefer to have s40.Overall Nokia 230 is good..
This blog is made to inform with facts future buyers and not to troll repeatedly against phones we hate by telling lies to all the other guys...
You have done this repeatedly and now you continue doing this with 216.
Many times in the past you have insulted readers of this blog...
Let people decide what it is good according to their needs...There are different people with different needs.
If you don't want then don't buy because it's your right -
but it is also our right to buy both
Nokia 216 and Nokia with android when it'll be released.
This is last of MS Nokia shot! Afterwards Nokia under License be manufactured by Foxcom. This216 is only improvement in front camera, both less Lights, addition of Notes app n menu. Not much but hike in price by 10 $. Just wait for D1C Nokia Andriod maiden phone march 17.
Hi, could you tell me please if it is possible to install whats up app on this phone? I am not a great apps user but this one is quite handy :)
Viji, 06 Dec 2016Sir/Madam Nokia company is still closed on before 1 year back, But this phone announcing date ... moreActually Nokia did not close, its mobile phone business was sold to Microsoft. Nokia continued and looked at future technologies - including virtual reality. Microsoft has since stopped producing phones under the Nokia brand (at first they still carried the Nokia name). And now, the Nokia brand has been bought back - feature phones now, and next year there will be smart phones.
Sir/Madam Nokia company is still closed on before 1 year back, But this phone announcing date is September 2016, How it is possible...
Anonymous, 23 Nov 2016Disappointed. I want an S40 device not an S30+!!!!!Yeah me too ..
I have the phone, it's great for its price. Problem is that shortcuts are not customisable. I don't want my right button to be a Selfie button. Anyone knows how to change it? Thanks!
Cant wait till see beautiful nokia phones again
Can someone tell me how to save contact number to the memory card? The phonebook memory just for 2000 and it's not enough for me. Thx
Finally bought it (usd 35) after waiting 1 month from expected release news ( Indonesia) . This feature phone as replacement of my Sony Ericsson Elm which become malfunction after serving well as long as 6 years . Available 2 colour ,black and mint both are dual sim. Mine blue mint, and everybody like it ...As second phone beside smartphone ,for basic telecommunication such long talk and text with long lasting battery , it is quite enough to fullfil expectation, even spec/feature under my previous Elm..
Even there many option feature phone from local brand and china brand with less price , but mostly all product only good for short time,..
I think 216 is the last Nokia feature phone from Microsoft, so maybe I am buying a memorable phone. Maybe there is more durable/better features phone Nokia from FIH/Foxconn but it just a possibility, ...
