AM FROM INDIA I LOVE MY MOBILE A LOT.
I BOUGHT MY MOBILE ON 25th dec,2005.
and from then onwards i really sent 2,75,000 messages through my mobile which is an enthralling feat in the history of mobile.
All the credit goes to the greatest NOKIA.
and my suggetion is please buy the model
although keypads takes time to get used to. at times i get confused with the circular keypads which way is up or down when playing games. overall it's very good and affordable. great for nokia's 1st. color fone (i think). lots of features.
This is the best ever phone i have had and it's battery performance is just awesome and last for atleast 2-3 days even after 2 years of it's purchase.More than worth the money spent on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!greatest phone ever made by NOKIA.
i love my keypads! i sms almost 24/7, n it has been a great phone all dis while
Using this phone since 2003. Overall phone is good. No problems such as lcd failure, system freeze and so on. The only thing is the keypad need to be pressed hard and not practical for heavy sms users.
The keypad was this phone's failing. Keys started to stick and fail after a while. Not recommended.
Crappy keys that need to be mashed to work have got progressively worse over the 2 years I've had this phone to the point where it has become too frustrating to use. Also, having no option to scroll up and down when writing a text (only left and right) is annoying. Other than that, it would be a good phone with good battery life, excellent back light.. if a little chunky.
This phone worked fine for the first couple months I had it...but then I had the constant problem of it turning itself off and frozen screens. Very frustrating!! I'd have to take the battery out to reset everything! Maybe it was just my phone in particular, but after a while I got fed up and got a superior Nokia model, the 6010. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of other phones (bluetooth, camera, video, etc.), but it does have polyphonic and downloadable ringtones, and four ways to IM: Yahoo, ICQ, MSN and AOL. That makes this little phone a definite plus. I've had mine for a year and have experienced NO problems whatsoever. Some of the ringtones are a little low, and the alarm is inaudiable, but it is still a good investment.
After all my research , ifound that 3530 is an excellent model ,but according to my friends its resolution is not so good .but in overall its a cost effective model compared to its features .
This is the first phone that i actually bought with my own money, and i wasn't disappointed at all. Great in terms of features, a bit bulky but excellent when it comes to surfing the net and downloading tones and games as well as applications like clock and compass. The keypad tends to get stiff after a while though, or it could be because I was playin crash bandcout every day.
it's a nice phone especially the java games that you can download but i don't know how to setup my GPRS.can you please give me some tips on setting my gprs?
this is a really good phone and it's very strong.I have one problem though that after a while the keys gets very hard to press. Other than that this is the ideal phone for basic phone users
nokia 3530,no good selular phone like it.this phone is very amazing cause its simple for using anybody and its have a completed menu ,i think this phone match to use for everbody with any more reason.thanks nokia!!!!u really conecting people.
hi to all readers, may i ask if this kind if phone can recieve a video clip?
A very decent Nokia. The keypad is the same as the 3595 (US 850/1900mhz). The 3520 and 3560 keypad is interchangeable and much better to work with as well as the Nokia 6010 which is an update to the 3500 series. The 4K display is a bit cruddy yes, but the phonebook and menus are extremely user friendly. The battery life is extremely good. RF reception is excellent and holds where most flip-phones start to fade. For a basic GSM phone this series Nokia holds its own quite superbly........
