Yes I too like the soft keypad, it makes me feel like a queen compared to the harshness of other phones. man i get new Fone and buttons sore.
my 22 year old person's opinion: ive had this phone for 2 years and hate letting it go, just because (out of a million good things) i got very used to the soft keypad which no other phone has now (im speedy texter and never had my hands/fingers hurt) and the phone is super fast which i like because other phones are just too slow with everything they come its really stressful to wait. i used to reply got o the main screen lock my phone and put it in my pocket in like 2sec. with some phones you have to wait for it to send or even finish catching up with your writing to be able to go to the main screen or else you lose your messege.. also if i didnt finish typing a messege i could just press the left (quick access/shortcut key) back to where i left off, and it would always save my last message so i didnt have to save my outbox i could just press the left key again and see what i wrote, even to reply and stuff, or send it to anyone else.. it was great... im not a big fan of the light show but you can easily TURN IT OFF! it seems that ppl think you will have to deal with the light show all the time, in fact you can customize everything. I cant find a negative thing to it except maybe a little thinner cus i always had it in my pocket and it showed also maybe bigger screen that's the biggie, with so many new phones with nice bright big screens.. so i switch to Tmobile dash and i absolutly miss the "wallet" function in the nokia 3220 though it kept you creditcard #'s and customer service phone # (in case you needed to report a lost card) and all that info even verification pin, i love to use it when i didnt have my cards in sight and was buying online also it saves ALL WALLET stuff even receipts (which i never learned how to use) and license.. i always misplaced my license and i needed that numer more than i thought i did.. OH! and my FASFA PIN ;) just LOVED WALLET feature.. all under a security code, just perfect.. i just remmebered i didnt like it didnt have real music ringtones which totally bumb me out at the time, but now that i can buy i dont even want it anymore :/ just vibration mode.. the dash is not considered a phone so you cant go onto the "TZONE network" sucks i used to play tons of games on my nokia and now i have to choose from limited handango.. the only thing i really got into with the dash was WI-FI but hey its not a necesity for me.. I liked everything in my nokia being soooooo simple and fast.. sim card and G3 is a plus i traveled a lot and it worked everywhere just changed the sim card and i was ready to go.. It lasted ALL weather, i used to get it wet a lot and would freak out at first but it survived also i live by the beach it used to get BURRIED in sand and survive, it got sand inside but it worked perfect. reception on this phone was better than any other phone ive had. OH! and the pics.. were very nice i used to email them to my yahoo and i had whole bunch of folders it was great to look back and see moments that could only be taken by fast thinking ;) but there goes one thing i could change, MORE MEMORY! i would always just send the pics to my email and clear the phone :/ with the dash though i havent even figured out how to send pics to my email and texting is so freaking complicated i have to aprove like 5 times the message the number, the text, it sucks, it takes me forever and i dont even like texting anymore because of it.. i know ill get it sometime but i just havent had time to figureit out.. 3220 though was simple and smart, i text ppl pics, voice notes, videos, emails, in NO TIME, great for staying in touch with everyone, cus it helps you.. responding and talking to ppl was simple and quick.. i was on yahoo messenger all day, i had great battery life, just loved it, i wish they would have made an updated version of it...
two things that broke though the vibration mode (because it was hardcore! and i guessed it just died one day) and the leathery keypad ripped between the keys but i replaced it.. i also liked the groups you can make with your contacts, if you wanted to receive call only from famili and stuff awesome! also it was easy to change modes and time them so i would time it to get into silent mode while i was in class... oh one more thing, it had a NOTEPAD something i have to pay $20 for to get it in my dash and it had a TO-DO-LIST and you could put them in order of priority and alarm on every one of them if you wanted to.. i think the main alarm was only one though that kinda sucked but i never used my phone to wake up i used my alarm clock.. anyway.. i know there are more things i could say but i dont want to bore anyone.. this phone was super strong i dropped it a million times down the stairs and street and once the bottom broke but it still locked in with the front so it survived yey! and never scratched the screen. would buy it again for any price if i could go back time and buy a phone :p not now, i have to move on :( but for me A+++ phone
I had this phone for 4 years and I am now 6th year medical student. It is excellent and I recommend every one to buy it.
i had this fone for about 2 years never proke or went wrong it was perfect but then i started secondary school n every1 had bluetooth n i dint so i got an upgraid to a 6230 its was brill
hello all, I own this phone from past 2yrs. no problem till now, for connecting phone to use interner first get settings from your service provider then do hav appropriate drivers installed on pc( u can find them on nokia's website)now connect the phone through cable and click one touch access, it tht doesnt works check the connection configuration and only keep a connection active ( select just one active option from listnot more then that) now remove cable and again connect phone, now it will get connected.
i cant use my nokia 3220 as a modem, my phone supports dku-5 and ca-42 cable... but it can transfer file phone to pc vice versa.. my phone is the new version of 3220.. it doesnt differ much with the old version.. will u plz email me for info and how to use it to connect to the internet.. i already download all software needed.. modem drivers, pc suite etc....
the closest ive found to this is the nokia 6300 it flashes blue on each side wen u have an unread msg or missed call but unfortunely it doesnt flash whilst a call is coming thru
it has a micro sd slot n bluetooth n all the works but its the closest to the 6300 so mayb nokia read our comments and r working on it have fun xx
I had this phone for almost 5 years. still works. The only thing i hate about it is it have low memory. u cant open theme with full memory. but its cool. I let my uncle borrow it for like 1 year, then he gave it back without the rubber things on the light... da hell...
i had this phone for about 4 months before i got a new one. this was the worst phone i have ever had. the keys break the rubber on the lights come off. i had to use a toothpick for 3 weeks to hit the keys because most of them broke and came out.
lovely phone,i am using it from the day it was launched....very happy it was great to have one at that time....
This is my first handset and i bought it on the day it was lanched............tough it doesn't have bluetooth and radio bt it doesn't matter.its lights are dashing.........i love my cell....n has a very good battery back up..............My battery worked for cosecutive 3 yrs without any fail.......so u cn go for it.............its worth...
this was my phone for 2 yrs or 3 i think. it was great. :( unfortunately it was stolen. i miss this phone. :(
I've had the phone since 2006 on the T-Mobile network. Very light in weight and has an easy keypad to enter phone numbers and functions. Nice flashing lights on the side help to alert on incoming calls. Has picture taking ability although resolution is more basic for a camera. A car charger and handsfree ear piece is also included depending on the set that you buy. Battery provides about 3 hours of talk time and battery holds charge for about ten days. Voice clarity varies depending on the proximity to the cell tower and location of phone. I haven't ever received a "no service available" problem that sometimes comes up on my Cingular phone service. If you don't need the fancy features of the more current cell phones, this model is a good choice.
Itís overall a very good phone!! Iíve had it over a 2 years and itís never let me down. The keypad is very nice same with the cover. The lights on the side of the phone are really useful because they flash when you have a missed call or an unread message. Also itís stayed in very good condition considering how many times Iíve dropped it!! Sometimes the photos can be blurry. Itís a shame they havenít made another one with bluetooth, infrared and mp3. Though overall itís a GREAT phone.
All in all, it's a good phone, it's organizer is so helpful. To me, the only problem with it was that the rubbers on the lights (2 on each side of the phone) turend yellow and fell after a while and so, after sometime your phone loses its charm.
When is nokia going to come out with a model like this. Which flashes lights when a missedcall or message is not read. Its the best fone i ever had. And i have six of them. Tired of waiting for a similar fone with a bigger memory and a similar good keyboard. Please let me know if u got any plans of such a fone in the pipeline.
Its the worst!!! no radio, no mp3, no infrared, no bluetooth. i had it for almost 1 year, sending messages takes tooooo long...
