all these bad comments about this phone, it's a brilliant bit of kit for it's size and price, not to be compared with a smart phone, because it's not, but it's the best next thing but more robust and easier to carry around. another aspect that nobody seems to mention is it's music storage with 32Gb micro sd card, and the convenience of having thousands of your favourite music tracks with you to share where ever you go. got built in speaker thats not too bad, and bluetooth. cameras quite respectable for general shots. all in all an awful lot packed into a small unit that is not bulky in your pocket and don't have to worry about sitting on it. i use it as my daily work phone ans save my smart phone for when its more convenient to use. don't knock this 301 it has a very useful place in our daily lives.
I have this phone, with some problems.
1: By accepting or rejecting the incoming call results in phone restart.
2: Outgoing call also results in phone restart.
3: Opening contacts menu gives an "Operation Failed" error.
I restored my phone but still facing the same problem.
Tried to flash it with its firmware but surprisingly the Official Nokia PC Suite doesn't support this one.
I am having the same problem. As soon as I updated the phone i lost functionality of the mail icon. Looking for an answer I have read that the fix is a factory reset - but does this work or is there an alternative method of restoring functionality?
this phone is too expensive in sierra leone it cost $100 is this a fair price?

you need to update the phone software to version 9.04 before doing anything else. then update each apps. you may need to delete/uninstall whatsapp if you see conflict on your browser.

Is the 301 bluetooth compatible with JaguarXF? Not shown on Jaguars rather out of date listing.
Also the Lumia 530.
dipankar, 04 Nov 2014If you are buying it expecting that it is like those old sweet nokia c500 or other phones, you... moreDuh, C5 runs Symbian OS and 301 is Java-based S40. Obviously they will function differently.
If you are buying it expecting that it is like those old sweet nokia c500 or other phones, you are going to regret like me, It's a good looking phone with nice color and all .. untill u switch it on and start using it, u will find things like tethering(wifi or usb both) suddenly absent, crappy camera without any focus, and the list goes on, .... and on ... still I was tolerating this phone untill I saw that this phone was unable to receive a call if a webpage was open.. (forgot to tell u camnnot even use two applications at the same time) .. so the ultimate comment about this phone from me will be "Its like a phone built by some college students as part of their final year project, not something that we want to buy as a nokia branded phone, but it looks colorful and very attractive to the eye"
