While cleaning Nokia's office, they found some cartons, full of Nokia 222. So they decided to sell this as a new model. That's all.

Microsoft can't take such decisions on Nokia. Perhaps, Nokia is clever. Keep a margin of $10 on each phone and sell in India and China where people still love Nokia and may not afford high end phones. If they sell 10 million phones there they make $100 million. It may sound bit odd, but that is how most of the ebay sellers make profit. Go with the volume!

This feature phone like this (Nokia222) is still important for everyday work, it is convenience by doing money transaction, long last battery , light weight, low cost ect. . .because nowsaday people use two or three phones . .
I really wish Nokia / Microsoft produce feature phone with best camera too because many people focus on good Camera also when they buy mobile phone . .
I think that there are lots of people prefere to use big screen mobile phones at the moment but for the secondary phone , it is no need to have the same screen size it can be smaller , thinner and lighter. Please provide choice for us :)
You fools....this is a strategic move by Microsoft. Think, why Microsoft dropped nokia tag from devices like 535, 640 and others which have developed originally under Nokia brand. Whereas handsets like 222 are originally manufactured by Microsoft but they are not using their name in it. And the reason is 2017, the year nokia will reenter the mobile market after the lease of using nokia as a brand name will expire for microsoft. Till that time microsoft is trying to put a impact on customers that nokia is a feature phone company. Coz it knows very well that Nokia would be its biggest threat and actually nokia was loved by ome and all during its regime so the return would be the most anticipated thing. Apple, Nokia and Samsung are originally the leaders of smart phone market. So any thing come from them after a hiatus will create a buzz...
Simple answer, they still sell... by the bucketload.
There are still many people who do not like or want smartphones and or touchscreen phones.
Dont know whats the logic behind the making such CRAP by Nokia, i could not expect from Veteran Nokia like that, all modern basic needs deprived cell phone they are manufacturing consistently... Nokia was my fVRT brand in past but now Samsung..
I wonder if they changed storage to SD card for text/mms problem 225 had ran out of room
Ugh,this is crap.The only thing I need is something like 2.4/2.6 inch screen with 240x320 resolution.It must be just with buttons.It MUST have wifi,I mean its 2015,all phones must have it.And the most important,symbian s60v3(9.3).Also 600mhz arm 11 with 3D acceleration powervr mbx or something with similar performance and 128mb ram.5MP camera with autofocus and flashlight.4/8gb integrated storage,with microsd up to 32gb.That would be a beast phone(like n95 8gb).
hill, 27 Aug 2015will it support unlimited sms storage ?It is s30 phone, so it will probably have maximum capacity of 200 sms or so. Enough for approximately one hour of texting. MMS-es are stored separately.
Easiest way to make space for newly received messages is to delete whole conversation and start again.
