Just to clear some confusion out here, YES this phone supports another brand's headset as well. I am using TDK earpiece/headphone with my Nokia Asha 501 and its just working fine.

AnonD-166282, 31 Jul 2013Now these are the real cons in Nokia Asha 501..
I'm using this phone from the last 20 days ..... moreDude, a question for you. How many phones in this price range multi-task? I am not speaking of the local-branded android phones which have no control over the SAR of their products. Yeah, you mightn't have heard of that one, I betcha!
ALso, how many sub-100$ phones play HD videos?
If you've handled any Apple products,they don't have a home screen either.
You don't have to scroll all the way to the contact, just drag the screen down when you're viewing the 1st contact. You will see a search box on the top. Same is the way with refreshing/updating your inbox of emails. Drag the mail list down.
Of course, this phone is not for those who want to fiddle with their phones all day. But it's more than useful for those who wants to stay connected, thru telephony or thru SNS. And to those who handle their phones roughly.

Now these are the real cons in Nokia Asha 501..
I'm using this phone from the last 20 days ...
U cannot do multitasking in this phone
When u open any application in Asha 501 & in the same time start receiving any data from other device through blue tooth ...then whenever the data transferring is completed, it'll display a message with "ok" button & after clicking on it, it'll take back to ur home screen(menu page). So again u should open/play the same application(before what you opened)
U cannot play high quality videos in it(hd videos)
There is no home screen for this device
U cannot send messages to multiple contacts
No search option(when u r in hurry to cal to ur friend/some one else then you should scroll down until u find his/her contact)
Don't expect any good games/interesting games in this mobile
So my suggestion is ...if u r a student those who keep on sending messages then i would say it is not better option for you
If u like games then go for good gaming android mobiles ...
U cannot play videos vertically(when someone is playing videos, they keep their mobiles horizontally. so it's a con which is not a big one)
Ear phones are not upto mark ..
watsup...bla bla bla are not there & already known fact is ..it's a 2G hand set
Overall i would say.. it is the better mobile with best build quality...
battery backup was good & touch is responsive
U can listen to songs & play videos & u can use internet for a long time
Don't compare with other phones ..
It's a worth able phone at 5000 rupees because this hand set belongs to nokia family which has more durability in terms of its life & usage..
This is nokia's premature baby.....
please don't waste your money on this phone....
it not even worth for Rs.2000.....
phone is useless and doesn't have even basic function like insert contact in message...
group message , send to all,.... wifi is also useless... U can't configure for manual IP....
no whats app no nothing guys dont waste ur money to this crap, nokia fail big time.
cvkr, 31 Jul 2013Nokia pls make a ph which has
1.2 dual core
4.5inches IPS display
4gb intrnl mem... moreThen.....that phone should not be a nokia phone.....
Just take a look at other nokia models and prices.....
If nokia having features you've mentioned will be
priced around 15k.....stop dreaming.....be smart.....!!
