The specifications are very good. Especially the 3g net, the 256 mb rom, the Duel SIM facility, the finger-full key board are really practical and very easy on heavy duty operation. This mobile may immediately be released in South India, which is not yet available. I am waiting for this NOKIA 301.

So, here's how it looks at the moment:
Single SIM (3G 900/2100) - RM-840
Dual SIM (3G 900/2100) - RM-839
- are both available online.
Still no evidence of the 'Single SIM (3G 850/1900) - RM-841' device anywhere.

The unit I had was the single SIM version, therefore I can't test out your request. Further more, the phones are not with me now, I bought it for someone else but not myself.
How is this Nokia 301's battery life? Mine last only 2days with out turning mobile data on .

I am a long time Nokia Fan and I really expected 301 to be a new "no non-sense". Too bad.
gourav, 28 May 2013its not launched in india & it will be available in 1st week of june.but i not sure it will be available in Afghanistan after 3 months.
alexander3133, 28 May 2013I bought it in one of the mall called "Queensbay Mall" in Penang, Malaysia.Alex, can you try one feature for me? I wonder if we can turn the secondary SIM off while it is inserted in the slot. Because my secondary SIM is used only for calling but not for receiving calls, I don't need to leave it on standby when I'm not calling. If I can't turn it off while it is in the slot, then I'll have to slip it in and out of the slot quite often. That's some kind of a hassle for me.

esmaty, 27 May 2013yes Mr.Alex, my mean is that where you have bought it?I bought it in one of the mall called "Queensbay Mall" in Penang, Malaysia.
I was ready to buy one Nokia 301, but seeing your reviews about the poor call quality, the keyboard-not-that-good, and the 48 hours battery life (seriously? I have an ooooold Sony Ericsson j220i that holds a week!), I think I will pass!
Thank you guys for giving us your feedback on the phone, I would have been sad buying one and ending disappointed with it.
So sad, I thought this Nokia 301 would have been a great phone. :(
Maybe I'll go with the Nokia 206, you seem to be saying that it has a better call quality and a good keyboard. It has no 3G, but I guess I can do without for a couple years more. I hope it has a good battery life, will have to investigate on this.
I really like the design and light weight. and feel like to have more ...
So, if I understood correctly, the Nokia 301 has a mono speaker. Does that mean that earphones will play music without different sound for each side? I'm deaf from my right ear and it would be really useful to be able to play music on the 301 without having the issue of hearing only half of the sound. Thanks in advance for the answer! :)

Maybe nokia is solved audio quality issue problem in model 301.1? I don’t know but time will tell it.
anit, 25 May 2013I'm sorry flashlite doesn't work in this 301Oh really ? I think old nokia phones are better and best when compared to new ones ! features need to be updated but not to be omitted by saying enhanced design ! If there is no adobeflashlite in this mobile means how can it plays youtube videos ? Nokia degrading itself by launching new phones with poor features !
