i am also using this phone.it is gud looking but i am facing lots of problems,lyk in music player no proper folders can be maintain ,it is not providing whatspp,recording during the call is missing,good quality videos are not running and so on....
Very low pixel density only 133ppi.it's rubbish fone.guys dont by this mobile it's waste of money.
what if when asha 501 gets whatsapp,its only for the updated ones and not for the existing ones??
it is cost but no worth. there is no recording option when we talk over the phone. this is user friendly but not worthy.
Why Nokia Asha 501 does not support record calls (record call conversations) as other phones?
This phone is smart and nice BUT does not snyc its contacts with any other contacts- nokia phones, nokia PC Suite, outlook, windows contacts, etc... that makes it almost impossible to backup the contact... been using mine since August and i'll do away with it if Nokia refuse to update and fix all these little (but big) problems
Another problem is the music player doesn't have an equaliser, the music player needs some updates....

Dear all friends, i got news from mobile phone magazin today ..they said that from now on all the Nokia Asha mobile handsets support Whatsapp ! i think its a good news :)
According to Wired UK, we will be getting WhatsApp only next year. So, dont buy this phone. If you already have this phone, congratulations, now you know why not to buy another Nokia.
BTW, here is the link of Wired UK - http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2013-10/22/nokia-asha-500-502-and-503-hands-on
Also, it does not have contact sync with Google/Hotmail, so we have to transfer the contacts via BT. Also no Ovi Suite support.
