Nokia 501 is a very very good phone in all asha series & S40 OS platform.i am very impressed & happy by the phone.
If any one thinking for buy it i will say "Don't think it is a very good phone"
It's just a feature phone with smartphone like features.
So, remove the misunderstandings from your mind.
WhatsApp lovers, don't take care, WhatsApp is coming soon on this device in this or in the next month.
I am waiting very eagerly to try WhatsApp on my NOKIA ASHA 501.....!!!!! :)
*Main Problem : So much laggyyyy......!!!!

if you cannot afford high end phones and thinking that this phone will make your dreams come true then do not buy it.. a lot of people here if not asking about apps that will work on this phone, they are complaining about this...this is very simple..if you are poor just buy nokia 105. if you are rich and looking for a back up phone, then this is a good option

Anonymous, 05 Aug 2013My asha 501 doesn't support pdf format. How can I read a text or document? Download the free "Calibre" converter software to your computer. It is good for converting text files to various formats. Try different formats and see which one comes out well in your phone.
anon, 06 Aug 2013i want to buy it but,i'm confused after reading their opinions? what should i do?First, understand your own needs from a phone. I mean NEEDS, not WANTS. Then see which phone can meet those needs within your budget. If the price is still too high for you, see which features you can compromise on or leave out.
Remember that the phone, like other things, is meant to be a solution to your needs. If you buy the wrong phone without understanding your needs, you will be fuming like many of these guys who bought something because the dealer told them "this is the fastest moving product, saar" or because the girl they were crazy about had the same model or something like that.

It would be nice if other people too kept their comments relevant to the issue instead of taking the opportunity to rant and rave against unrelated products.

You are confusing the issue by bringing in complaints against other unrelated phones like the 620. It would be more helpful if you posted your anti-620 comments in in the relevant thread.
