Anonymous, 14 Feb 2011where did you buy this phone worth 1,500?? thank you..just bought c1 at one of the retail outlet in SM Val, 1,560 with Nokia Warranty, 1,440 (Gray Market) Store Warranty. 4 Days use still wd 3 bars battery. all in all nice simple Phone.dual sim(no problem)takes 3 secs to change sim via dedicated key.
enough type of phone. in this day and age? please. Most important it uses the greatest battery ever invented bl5c. I have tons of these and loads of extra batteries already. since 1100, n6600 and friends. this is what nokia does best. enough phone, long battery life, awesome.
considering the price i think this phone is worth your money. i just bought this phone for 1,560.00 php pesos.so far im liking it.
its a really good phone
*long battery life
*awesome radio and back speaker
*it comes with an earphone
*voice leakage at the back. the person beside could hear you. its audible enough for them to understand what is being said. but still its a good phone for calling. you could put a tape at the inside part of the back lid of phone, problem solve.
*no internal antenna. you have to put the earphone while using the back speaker for radio.
*the sounds from the earphone is not load enough to overcome the sound of daily traffic.
overall, if your looking for a handyphone for texting and calling with a long battery life. and radio for entertainment while jogging this is the phone for you.
Superb phone for those living in the real world and using an iPad or laptop for computer work. Beautiful shape, clear bright screen, outstanding radio and powerful inbuilt speaker, excellent battery life, wonderful torch and dual sim function. Comes with hands free and first class earphones. Does most things a smart phone can't do and hardly noticeable in the pocket. Then at about 5% of an iPhone cost. Way to go Nokia! A true winner.
the question about if the two sim will work at the same time, is a good question because i have been having same problem to know if the two sim can work at the same but i realised that is not posible because i have search all through the phone but no link for two sim but swaping of sim..if there is any short cut to activate two sim please do display the process to go about it. tnx
I'm using this phone almost 2 months and had following difficulties
1. Sudden restart while working with the phone
2. Signal dropping (abnormally)
3. poor sound quality
4. Bad loud speaker
5. Poor response time
6. Bad user experience while doing the contact searching
But it has following good features as well
1. Superb extended battery life
2. Good FM Radio
My battery lasted 10 days!!!!
The FONTS ARE HUGE for us wearing reading glasses, this is great!!!
It is a nice phone from nokia, I prefer it from Nokia 1616 because it has Dual SIM slot. So easly switch between two SIM's. Thanks to Nokia
i think so NOKIA 1st time launch this kind of cell-phone in the market but, i like very much this kind of cell u don't know that the battery timing is very awesome because its past 48 days in stand by and also 13hours in continues talking on any network in every country
Geek, 23 Jan 2011this is totally insane! this nokia unit is full of crap! i js bought a night ago, they told th... moreAre you really sure it's not double stand-by (like for example Samsung D880 which I presently own and was one of the first DuoSims).
fone is good
battary is excellent
dual sim one active and other is capable of accommodating setting to tell you if another calling
Exactly the phone i wanted,,,
I dont think you can talk simultaneously on both the sim active. So why complaining of switching. You can switch to your personal number or common number according to your need. Battery is excellent, i have not charged phone since 4days ago i bought it although i talk almost 2hrs a day on phone......
It has everything in price Rs. 1400 and never compare Nokia with chinese or other phone. Just compare the network capablity for which i think mobile phone is meant for.......
this is totally insane! this nokia unit is full of crap! i js bought a night ago, they told that it is dual sim, but not dual stand-by! what's the point?! this is good if you're just want a very very cheap mobile unit!
If you are over 40 and wear reading glasses, this phone is for you - the TEXT can be adjusted to huge proportions and readable even with no glasses on.
