Why MS releasing phones in Nokia's label? I bought a 215 about a year or so ago, thought Nokia still made, but its a hybrid type of MS-Nokia phone and a pathetic device, poor call quality and all, darn!
Derpisoft, 21 Sep 2016How the hell does it have access to Apps if it has no WLAN? This looks like a pay as you go p... more2G bands GSM 900 / 1800 - SIM 1 & SIM 2 (dual-SIM model only)
GPRS Up to 85.6 kbps
EDGE Up to 236.8 kbps
A shame that Microsoft/Nokia still produce devices that are already deprecated once released. They keep creating electronic waste by releasing cellphones that are barely different from each other. One might have a 2MP camera but no WIFI, the other has WIFI but only 0.3MP. Don't support this type of business.
I have the nokia 215 which can only store around 100 text messages, so i have to keep deleting them. Please tell me this is fixed in this version?
This phone is for people (like me) that want a phone to call people, text people and thats it.... if you want to watch a film watch it on a tv, want to listen to music, listen to a radio.stereo..... this is why this phone will be cheap as chips. If you lose it on a night out, tough, get another..... no big deal.
Nowaday, nobody like to use such of keypad, nobody wanna buy a devices without wifi & the display too small not suitable for old person. Its look like NOKIA (NO MORE CONNECTING PEOPLE) ANYMORE.
I'm glad Nokia is keeping us posted that they still exist. I pray they come up with something serious soon!!
WHY so Beautiful ?? :(( if its manufacturer was Real Nokia I will buy 2 of it one for me and one for dad ~ 74Dollar ... and see all day it's Design So Beautiful Mint Color so so so beautiful toke my heart better than V10 - Mate8 and ... but unfortunately build by my Microsoft's Nokia that has bad result phone @ Feature btw nowadays there is no good feature phone like:
Nokia N Series @flagship Nokia 6300 @mid-range & Nokia 1280 @non-camera low range
best feature phone build by Samsung (metro series and c3590) after that other companies such as S30+ Nokia (not S30-S40-S60 Original Nokias)
Hope See Nokia at Feature phones ... if not i go buy Nokia 216 or Samsung B350 / Metro 360 or A good Non-camera
How the hell does it have access to Apps if it has no WLAN? This looks like a pay as you go phone right? who in their right mind is going to use the internet like that on this phone?
wow it have 3.5mm headphone jack..something a fruit company knows nothing about except making money
LeeHarvey, 21 Sep 2016finally new nokia phone has come out, so this is from microsoft or new nokia?microsoft
There are similar elements with Nokia 222 in terms of design,just look the colour matched keys.
Nokia 216 is a beautiful phone and the mint colour is something new.
Generally the 216 is based to Nokia 230 which is propably the best phone that came out from Microsoft's Nokia...
The truth is that 216 is a downgraded version of 230 but judging the specs along with the price the Nokia 216 is a very good bargain because with 37$ you get two basic cameras ,led flash,radio,nice design,physical keypad for fast texting,display 2.4 inches and the most important you can even browse and download games from Opera mini store.
Don't forget the good battery that feature phones include.
I'm using 230 which is a good phone but i miss notes...propably 216 will miss notes too and this is a disadvantage.
Don't listen to people who says that you can't download apps and games.
In my 230 i have downloaded many free and excellent games like mini soccer,super ludo,brick challenge and other excellent games.
Overall to return to the discussion about Nokia 216 i think that is a good phone for it's price and i also think that feature phones are necessary for everyone.
This is a Microsoft's Nokia device and soon more Nokia devices will be released but this time from Hmd/Foxconn/Nokia.
Nokia is the gift that keeps on giving and even Nokia feature phones sells millions and that's why Microsoft released one more...
Please produce classic phone with HD voice support it very improves the sound quality which is very important for older people
