You are right: Nokia 206 also seems to be a nice device but the lack of USB PC connection and 3G is a no go for me.
AnonD-144375, 23 May 2013I didn't try the 206. I cannot compare. Screen light turn off can be timed out up to 120s. T... moreNokia 206 has better call quality and well designed keypad which makes it easier to use when compared to 301 and even last longer battery life though my 301 is newer. The cyan looks beatiful.
For those who wanted to connect this phone to PC, download "Nokia PC Suite 7.1" and stay to this. Just ignore the update prompted by Nokia PC Suite as the new "Nokia Suite" does not support this phone.
I am able to do contacts restore from older Nokia phones using this Nokia PC Suite.
Charging: Obviously the phone will be charged using USB cable, if your phone battery is empty, the phone will not allow you to turn it on when you start charging it at the beginning. But the phone will be allowed to turn on after sometimes of charging.
Communication sound clarity remains a problem. I also need to push the volume up to maximum. I did not have such an inconvenience with Nokia 5310 and 3109.
Any experience ?
Battery was emtpty after 48 hours of mixed and reasonable use (max 15 min calls, 20 sms, 3 MB of web surfing). This is much shorter than specs and than other Nokia phones I've used (5310 and 3109 Classic).
Any other experience ?

Purchased two units, come with 4GB memory card @ MYR 289 each.
Music Player: Allows you to play music in the background, but no equalizer. I would say the sound quality is superb when connect to my own earphone.
Radio: Allows you to use radio in the background. RDS is supported. Recording of radio is also supported.
Home Screen: Allows you to turn off, I find it annoying :P
Ringtones: Come with 26 sets of ringtones, allows you to select MP3 file as ringtone.
Speaker: I would say it is a powerful mono speaker, but one thing I don't really like is the speaker is located at the bottom back of the phone.
Alarm: The standard alarm sound is not that loud, so for those deep sleeper it might not able to wake you up. But it does allow you to choose different alarm sound, so you could made one loud alarm sound and set it. It also allows you to choose radio as the alarm sound.
