Best phone I've ever had. Still have it after 5 years! Working perfectly. I am looking for a newer replacement though. Preferably clamshell with great keypad. Any suggestions?
I've had a lot of old cellphones (Siemens C35, A50, C45), and one old Samsung X-100, but for allready some time I use this cellphone and I must say that it is great! If I compare it to any of this old cellphones i see that this one is the best I have ever had.
best phone I have ever used. solid, frill-free. Never lets you down. No fireworks.
I had used this mobile for some time, and I think it is the best phone I have used in its category. It is simple, stylish, rock solid and not expansive. If you want to have a phone for calling and messages, this is the best option. Keypad is fantastic to write SMS. In its category I rate this phone 9 stars.
Y, 08 Oct 2008Hi can any one tell me if this phone works in the US??? Thanks!!!i've had mine since 2004.work real well in the u.s.still using it today.
I've had this phone since Feb 05, nearly 5 years!
This is a really solid phone and was a rare find for $300 outright at the time.
Great solid phone, I've dropped it many times with no problems. Kinda get sick of deleting SMS all the time because the memory is full. Other than that, this is a damn good phone. Sure it doesn't have good internet, camera, music, storage etc but that's what other devices are for. It does calls and SMS well and that's all I wanted.
The battery life is AMAZING, I charge it maybe once or twice a week, my wife's iPhone is on charge every night.
Looking for an upgrade soon, want to get a decent camera phone w/ 3g internet.
this phone is not touch ay ya ya i hate it i have had it for about 5 years.
OMG what do you people do to your phones ? I've been using this phone since I first purchased it in 2004 and , the key pad is still intact , the housing is scratch free , both displays function properly , the reception is outstanding , the speaker will break your ear drum , and the battery life is awesome. First off I've seen a lot of people say the phone scratches easially , Ok well if you toss it in the glove box to get scrambled around everytime you take a sharp turn , it will scratch. If you throw it in your purse next to a big cluster of keys it will scratch LOL. If you carry it in your jeans pocket and bump into the door jam the outer display will crack ( pressure crack ) if you expose it to moisture ( standing in the pouring rain having a conversation ) you could damage the speakers. The bottom line is TAKE CARE OF YOUR PHONE ! It will treat you as good as you treat it.
i have this phone for almost 4 YEARS.
it works just like in the first day
there were some problems with the screen-saver jamming when u close and open the lid fast,
but if u deactivate the "open lid to answer call" function, it will never jamm again.
the other anoying thing was the scratching of the display from the keys.
that are the only problems
i`m gonna hold this phone untill it drops dead :-)
P.S. the battery still has a 5 day uptime in idle, and 4 hrs in conversation
my camera is not working good and mine has radio.
but its not playing and my charging point is also bad. pls can someone tell me wat to do firstname.lastname@example.org
Y, 08 Oct 2008Hi can any one tell me if this phone works in the US??? Thanks!!!Yes, it works perfectly well in the U.S. I got mine from the Orient in Nov., 2006. Never had a problem. I never replaced the battery since I bought it. Unlike other cells, you need to replaced the battery after 2 years.It is the best phone I ever had. It doesn't get overheat while battery is being charged. The best phone I ever had. I bought it for $300 back then. You can have the fonts adjusted to large font and I don't even need my glasses to read messages. It stores about 500 messages. VEry good cell, if it's available, get it. And if you use it with another sim card while you are in another country, it is functional as is. I used it when I travel to the Orient. No problem at all since I had it. Get it where available.

my cellphone can't get signal when i'm at the house................
It was my first phone ever and i loved it so much! The keys were so easy to use becasue they werent cramped and they were big. If you put a picture on the main display it is so clear. I love the fact that it has a mini display! For some it might be annoying that it doesnt have Bluetooth but you can record things really well! I loved my phone and i miss it so much that i am saving up to buy a new...................... (drumroll) NOKIA 6170!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hmmm... lemme see, around 2004 as well? anyway, bought this, had it for 3 months, then sold it. i hate the cam. it sucks! but loved it for 2 months...
april04, 20 Oct 2007bad thing about the phone is the keys on keyspads are falling, hard to replace the housing and... moreI've had this phone for 3-4 years and I'm totally in love with it, although it has these flaws:
1. keys are falling
2. very low memory, no possibility to increase
3. it accepted only one mp3 in all its history with me
On the upside, it never let me down in the middle of the conversation, the sound is good...
Now I'm looking for a replacement (nokia 4ever) and I can't find any...
It was the best phone i ever had. Durable, compatible, lovely............. I miss it so much
