Is there ANYONE out there who knows whether the Nokia 301 DUAL sim variant will at all be available in SOUTH AFRICA and when??? I have never battled the way I have to get info on whether this phone was ever going to be released in this country.

So disappointed with this phone.
The nokia website said it can play these video codecs
Video playback codecs: H.264/AVC, MPEG-4
Video playback file formats: MP4, ASF, AVI,
it can play 3gp obviously, duhh.. but that's Jurassic age!
but NOKIA 301 CANT EVEN PLAY MY MP4 VIDEO "only the audio "it said video format not recognized"
Nokia is full of LIES will never buy again a Nokia phone. Apple and Samsung are also crappy phone makers but they don't do OBVIOUS LIES to their products.

In fact, after having read so many complaints about Nokia 301, I finally changed my mind and bought Nokia 206 last week, for I have no use for 3G services. I feel very lucky because everything about Nokia 206 turns out to be very satisfactory. Its network reception and call quality are both excellent. On dual-SIM standby mode, the battery last 4 to 5 days, during which I talked to my friends for about two hours on the hands-free loudspeaker but did not play games or use any internet services. If you use only one SIM on this phone, it surely won't get out of juice until ten days later. The only drawback pointed out by people on the internet is its lagginess, but that is not a problem to me, because it is not so unbearably slow in operation as you might think. ^_^

Please note that battery life will still depend on the phone's usage.
i bought my nokia 301 dual sim last friday in the philippines for php 3,600. Nice phone!
There have been reports of short battery duration for the single-SIM version of Nokia 301. What about the dual-SIM model? Can anyone who has the dual-SIM version on hand provide information on how long the battery holds out? Any other experience with the phone is also welcome. Thanks a lot.

In the Philippines, it's available in Greenhills bridgeway stores, 3,500 Php for the Nokia 301 - dual sim, all colors
MisterBean64, 09 Jun 2013I agree with you. I am also waiting for a simple, classic keyboard and no nonsense phone. I do... moreIf you want a phone just for calling and texting. Just buy a Nokia 206. It's been proven to have better reception and voice quality than 301 and it also has a way better keypad. If you're a thinking guy P1000 difference should matter to you.
Filipino Idiot, 09 Jun 2013Ever since product marketing has been invented, there will always be lies embedded on them. ... moreWell nice spiel , but the battery life is not 30days as suggested, try 1-2 days, my oldie still goes for 4. whats different than the old 2007 S40 that makes it die within 2 days?. As for the Dpad it's made for girl fingers not happy.
