I bought this phone at Target for $29(on sale from $39) as a prepaid phone. It came with 10 free min, but I just put in my contract T-mobile SIM card. My reason for switching from a Samsung Gravity to a $30 Nokia is that the Gravity gets very poor reception, especially in my home. So far problem solved. Not one dropped call yet. I've had the Nokia for a few days now. The Gravity would drop a call within 2-3 min, or at best the other party couldn't hear me. No bars all over my home, now, at least 2 bars and only one report of my voice sounding weird. Great second/backup phone if you get poor reception or a good cheap spare.
Two defects from my two day use:
1. The call will be disconnected when I fold the phone, even when I plugin a headphone. That's very inconvinient.
2. If I pick up another call during a call, the first call will be disconnected.
I quickly read the manual but didn't figure out a way to resolve them. If you know any solution please email me at immyownpet2000 at yahoo.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2010My nokia model 2720 phone last a only one month. My advice is simple keep away from Nokia. I totally agree with you. Nokia is getting worse and worse. Not only their product but also their service are going down. The company will go to dead soon.
nice design, good looking and good display. Good volume and call for calling. BUT thats it. Camera is pathetic and memory a joke. Nokia clearly lied about this. I contacted them and they denied it. A very basic phone but overpriced and trading standards should investigate.
the phonne does lokk horrible cheap.funny looking a nd i do wonder what the cost would be like.

A regal piece of dung. Looks cheap, feels cheap and works even worse. Sound is barely audible. Feels as though it may fall apart while in your hand. Photo and video quality is horrible. You would be better served recording the moment with a piece of paper and a crayon.
It's nice looking, little too delicate...feels like if you let it slam shut it might be trouble. It does work ok, of course the button's aren't very user friendly, but you can get used to most of the problems. Main thing for me is having to hold it just so on your ear, if you move it the smallest bit you lose the sound. Seems like the signal is ok, haven't had any trouble with anyone hearing me. I got this before Christmas paid little for it, if not I would have probably taken it back.....At this time I am more or less satisfied and will keep it.
Cheee.. Nokia has to agree that they are not so good at flip open phones.
Just an FYI, most of your people's comments were not helpful at all.
All people really want to know is if the phone works. how about commenting about if the call reception is good and if people can hear you clearly?
Just an idea.
It's a nice, easy-to-use basic phone, I like it.
For those who ask about the ringtones: the phone has Bluetooth. You have a computer (the one on which you are wiewing this page). Rip the mp3 from a music CD, or download a ringtone from a free site and transfer it via BT.
this is a really smart phone for those who are looking for the simplicity and elegance, deep colors for more elegant shape and design
Ravenwing, 07 Dec 2009Try Cell Emporium.comThank you for the info. re: cellemporium.com!!
I found this phone to be perfectly ok, just what I wanted. I dont need all the extras you get on some phones nowadays, all I need is a straight forward phone for calls and text, which it is. Bargain at £39.97 in Tesco.
I am not satified with the phone. IT IS HORIBLE ACTUALLY. I hate is cause when you get a message you only see it for a second that an envolope pops up and disapears. The back of my phone is always coming apart and its just a piece of junk. > Does anyone else have that problem? Okay so yeah if your thinking on getting this cute little phone...DONT!!! Cause you will be dissapointed although it is cheep its not worth it.
I was given misleading information when purchasing this phone.
I do not like this phone as you have to Buy Ring Tones
you get 3 very usless ring tones
I found it very hard to use its too confusing , i am very sorry that I purchased it.
By the pics, seems like a very cute child phone! I think Motorola had some very good handsets (much better than this) at about 3 or 4 years ago, like w510, even w280 is better! Good calls for everyone.
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2009can anyone tell me how look for local networks, i have travelled to europe from US, under conn... moreIf you have the US version of this phone it will not work in Europe.
The US version of this phone operates on the 850 and 1900 MHz bands. The European version and networks operate on the 900 and 1800 MHz bands.
This phone is relatively inexpensive; you should be able to pick the European version up fairly cheap.
Next time look into a quad-band world phone.
