any other options instead of nokia 3120?
can i buy nokia 3120 or nokia 5310?
my phone does not have PTT (Push to Talk) on the menu... Although we don't get to use the function here, I think it should have been there. I guess that's another reason for me to consider changing the phone.

It only has Dual Mode and UMTS. Isnt that strange? I guess I might consider changing the set.

Lupu, 15 Apr 2009I olso have the firmware 7.16 and I have the GSM mode on my phone settings.my phone is made in Hungary and comes with 3 printed on the cover. It also does not feature Go To shortcut with the left selection key which was present with Asian models. Instead it has Launcher which has a selection of many internet sites which includes 3Planet, 3Music Store and other 3 related stuff... I think that is why it has an artistic 3 printed on the cover. I guess Nokia issues different firmwares for Europe and Asia.
I reinstalled 7.16 again from Nokia Europe site but still no GSM only selection. makes you wonder.

I have an argument with people who posted :- to Save Battery - I would suggest turn off the dual mode and use GSM only settings in the network. Disable the dual mode to GSM only. Battery life doubles! To change your Network mode: # Menu > Settings > Phone > Network mode > # Now you can select GSM mode.
Well folks, this is not possible as the phone does not give too many options: Just Dual Mode & UMTS. At least in my firmware v.7.16
yes I agree that the screen shuts off too soon. It may be fine... but Nokia should give us options to set our own timings to suit or own indivitual preferences. Let's hope they improve upon this in the newer firmwares.
the very useful "Rythmic Lights" feature that used to be present in various Nokia phones is missing in 3120c. This feature allowed us to notice any missed calls or messages by constantly flashing lights. Maybe the new firmware will give us this option.
The memory card is a slot under the battery cover towards the side and requires bigger stronger fingernails to insert or pull out. quite a struggle and a bit cumbersome.
I found that the Menu - Grid with Names quite a good addition to the phone. You can also move individual buttons and assign specific locations as per your own choice and preference. Nice feature Nokia
I found the camera to be OK. not too excellent. not too bad. While viewing the photos on the phone screen, the photos look great. When viewing on a PC monitor the photos dont look as good. And believe me folks, my PC monitor is tuned to represent excellent colors and sharpness for design works.
However, I must say the Video is more than satisfactory for a mobile camera - 640x480 @15 FPS. not too bad. While it wont win any awards, it will work in an emergency and better than not having one.
The battery is really being eaten up... I just bought this set a few days back and it has gone only through 2 charge cycles. So, I guess it might be too early to comment... And also because it uses 2 Networks which might be responsible for the battery drain.
Anyone has an idea? please comment.
This phone also considerably slows down after changing Themes, and pauses for quite a bit. I guess the duration is enough to make people think it has "Hung Up" or something. I thought that way too - initially. But later it gets its composure back and begins to function normally.
Found it strange.
