The build quality on this phone is absolutely shocking. The two selection buttons at the top (blue stripes) are actually one button that swivels this way or that in a way that makes it almost a given that it will break. The entire keypad squeeks and has the feel of the plastic they make party cups from.
A huge disappointment overall.
Mike Hunt, 17 Jun 2009...battery life is, as i said, impressive. i've had it 44 yrs and have never had to charge it.... moreIm concerned that someone else is posting as me. Anyone who knows me knows I cannot stand wifi!
The Cup & String Classic sounds good in Proud Yellow. Where can I get hold of one of these? I imagine they are quite exclusive.
I would be very proud to own such a wonderful device.

My friend, Bunty McSprocket, has the same phone in Proud Yellow and has always commented on the cup and strings excellent battery life.
Mike, Does your cup and string have wifi? If so, how much battery would it drain in 100 years?

Shame no camera - Not even a pinhole camera? (I dont mind waiting for my photos)Also does it come in the nice purple colour that my 6220 comes in? I just love that colour. Sometimes I look at my purple 6220 and think to myself - What a great looking phone! Then I use it and end up wanting to crush it.
No, i went for Cup and String Classic which unfortunately doesn't come with a camera, screen or keypad...haven't had any trouble with it though.

Does your cup and string have a camera?
If so how many megapixels is it?
i use a cup and string, its about 100yrs old now...reception is pretty rubbish unless you are within 10 metres or so but the battery life is amazing. All in all 8/10
Yeah the keypad is very cheap. I dont even like the feel of it. The last poster is right. I really really dont like this phone anymore. I think I might stamp on it.
Can anyone recommend a good alternative?
and yeah, the keypad is cheap looking and feel.
it feel likes its going to fall off, very wobbly and loose...
Geez... i don't know about this phone. i mean add US$80 u can get N82, same spec but with larger 2.4inch, wi-fi and stereo speakers. the 5mp is just average almost all nokia now have it, but can't compare with SE 5mp phones which is better camera
...was that a Nokia 6220 in your pocket or were you just pleased to see me?
...and your right, i do want it.
