I bought it few days ago. Phone design is so good. Its feature is also good. I used nokia 206 before , it can support viber, whatsapp and line after updating phone s/w. Nokia Asha 501 supports Youtube, Line & express browser at the present. I hope that whatsapp and viber will be available in Nokia store soon. Every people has their own preference , it will be good if Nokia launchs bigger screen Asha phones for the next model ( Asha OS is amazing !) . After using Nokia Asha 501 i feel that its phone keyboard and full keyboard are very usefull and easy by texting. My phone supports many languages ( for my device : english, vietnamese and thai languages " can read and write" ). This phone has option to send multi message at the same time, voice quality and battery are very good. Thank you Nokia for your quality and modern mobile phone.
how to download whatsapp nd we chat in nokia asha 501 ovi store is nt giving option to download it????
Dont worry about lack of apps,this is newly developed platform,takes some time for main apps to be introduced,few months atleast.besides the display quality,nokia has outdone rest of the companies by creating the best smartphone in 5K range even including the best android budget phones on same price range,atleast 80-90% popularity among all top mobile sites proves that.on next asha model,it would be good to add more RAM to 256 mb for much smoother animations/multitasking plus atleast above 166 ppi pixels density with 3.2-3.4 inch screen for better video/game playing experiance and optional dual core processor or better graphic processor and decent battery within price bracket of 8.5-9.5K range with same user friendly platform along with well stocked apps market will annhilate every other android phone till 15K range.very good phone with current features and platform and with few improvements it might become the best budget phone around the globe.oh yea forgot to add,try throwing a 5 megapixel camera with flash on upcoming 3g phone and see your market figures going skyhigh.

Umersm, 21 Jul 2013Thanks SAM230396, just another question, like many other phones, can we set different tone for... moreYes bro, you can keep different alarm tones for different alarms.
I had set 7 alarms and the tones of every alarms are different......
In the last 3 days, NOKIA ASHA 501 dropped 4 times from my hand and 1 time in cold water.
But I was surprised to see....!!!!
My cell was still working perfectly. First I thought that my money got wasted, but when I put the battery after one hour in the cell, surprisingly it was working. That's the NOKIA.
NOKIA you rockssssss...........
SAM230396, 21 Jul 2013You can add maximum 10 alarms. It's very good job by NOKIA....Thanks SAM230396, just another question, like many other phones, can we set different tone for different alarms?
