REPOSTING (corrections to Asha 300, replaced by Asha 200).
In reply to sara..
Actually, didn't that familiar with C2-03, since I haven't used that phone. As I'm basing on your experience with C2-03, I would say that you switch to this Asha 200 as I compared yours with mine. I cannot find any reason why C2-03 is more expensive than this phone. They have the same features and also the same with the memory. I think the slide thing and the golden keypad contributes to it's price higher than Asha 200.
If you're a simple person that only needs a dual-sim with a qwerty pad (however, you might be a bit confused with its keys at first..), and a good camera with an average music player and speakers, I recommend this phone to you. Speaker is not as loud as x1-01 (as being the Nokia's loudest speakers in line to low-end phones ever..), so don't expect that much. Camera quality is good in places that are bright, even with a little light, it's good compared to old Nokia phones from 2009-2010 that are at this price. It's clear, but not crisp. You can install apps and games, just don't forget to buy memory card of yours.
The overall quality of this phone (for me), is at 8/10 rate. At this price, even with a bit complains (slow browsing, can't receive incoming calls in both sim cards, can't play music with a downloaded theme), I'll give it an 8. Since this is just a simple phone, not an android nor net nor SUPER phone.

Are you already subscribed to surfing with your network provider? And also, ask for manual settings for the internet connection. Mine I can connect to Ywitter and Facebook thru Social app.

AnonD-19220, 17 Jan 2012Hi THE NOKIA ASHA 200 !!!
I have a question for you...is there any problem other than the low... moreIn reply to avi23..
You can read my answer with the echo thing below.
Animated themes with the 10MB? Yes, it can support even it is s40.
You can download apps, games and themes. However, here's the catch, you cannot play music when you applied new downloaded theme. You can only open the music player with a Nokia's defaulted themes. That pisses me off. Whenever I'll listen mp3s, I change first my theme into a pre-installed ones and apply back again my downloaded themes whenever I'm finished with the player.
Haven't tried to chat with Facebook or Nimbuzz. Sorry for that. Pertaining to others, have you tried the Facebook/Nimbuzz chat? Can someone answer avi23's question. Thank you to those will answer.
I am experiencing some echo.. But seriously, I swear you guys that are still wondering, the echo effect isn't annoying. For me, it's not irritating nor a disappointment at all. Trust me. It's just for those people that expecting TOO MUCH of this phone. Remember, this model is at low price. Don't complain that much.
nokia is very good and responsible company.
her product like as asha 200 is very good it has no echo sound while calling
I got this peace of crap on 15/1/2012 in bangalore as the from univercell initially i was look out for a dual sim samsung mobile but the salesman insisted me to buy nokia 200 as i required in white colour. After getting back to home i inserted the sim to make a call and to my shock my voice was echoing, after trying making several calls i got the same echo sound. Later i inserted other sim card but the voice was still echoing. I also found that the ringtone volume was very low. I felt cheated and next day i went back to univercell and shouted on the salesman and demanded for a refund of my money but instead the shameless creature denied to refund back or exchange and told me to go to nokia service centre.i shouted back just within a day why should i go there its none of my job . And i got frustated and took back the crap phone.left to my work.and gifted itto my office peon as it was his birthday. My final advise to all of u dont ever buy nokia phones as its not a trusted brand anymore. And never buy any mobiles from univercell.
how much contact & message can be stored in it ? can they be shifted to memory card plz reply than you in advance only who is using asho 200
Rockesh, 18 Jan 2012Hi ALL,
I have mailed to nokia care about the problem of echo while calling. the below text i... moreNokia's support email is worthless. I too had some communications icw some handsets. They provide incomplete and wrong information.
Resetting the handset is not useful because it brings the handset to that status when it was first purchased and does not correct any flaw in hardware. this echo problem of nokia seems to be a hardware problem rather than the settings-related one.
Can this be an issue with a specific network provider?
Is there someone using Asha 200 but does not experience this Echo problem?
M Using this phone from last 10 days & its sound quality is too bad & third class,its have eco sound major problem which is not can b solved so please dont buy this phone ....nokia have broke my last 5 years trust ......

It does not happen to my providers (Globe & Smart).
Bought nokia asha 200 pearly white Jan 13 and actually overall I find it worth much higher than the price you're paying for (remember the older phones without much functionalities but costs 4k and up).
Everything else with my asha 200 works fine with what I had expected but when it comes to texting, I had a little but irritating issue with sending a message using Sun sim. I thought it's just something to do with the signal because it will always say retry (message sending failed). But then I figured out a solution for it which was to add the message to archive then forward it to the same number I'm texting to, which by doing that will be sent successfully. It's just so irritating that I have to do it everytime the message will not be sent successfully. No matter how I retry, it will always fail but with my solution, it will be sent successfully. Anybody else experiencing the same issue with the Sun? I'm not sure if it happens with the other networks.
