For gifting purpose I bought this phone(C2-06) a week back(Rs.4200) as I have requirement for
Touch and slider(did not have much option in market)both. Below are the facts:
1) C2-02/03/06 all are same except c2-02 is single sim and rest of the two are dual sim
dual standby(but not dual active*) and c2-06 has metallic(fake) cover that c2-03 does not
have. C2-02/03 has plastic cover.
* Dual standby is when both the SIM cards are active but only one is usable at one time and dual standby-dual active is when both SIM cards are usable simultaneously.
2) C2-02/03/06 all have S40 user interface customized for Touch and have resistive touch
screens. So do not expect touch sensitivity like Samsung/HTC(I am not also referring capacitive ones). Basically it is sluggish and only suitable for beginners(just to get a feel of touch). Rest of the specifications are identical in all 3 models.
3) Internal user available memory is 10Mb once you unbox it. And even if you make any
changes in themes, tones, settings etc. the memory decreases(do not know why). Mine has
become 8.9 Mb without any SMS or CONTACTS or anything stored in Phone memory.
4) you can not uninstall any Applications, games that came pre-installed. So the memory
problem will never be solved. Due to this the phone hangs some times. Other wise there are not too many issues.
5) C2-03/06(not C2-02) comes with a 2 GB MicroSD card. If you buy a separate card(like I
bought an 8GB), it will function but most of the pre-installed Apps will not be there anymore
as they came installed in the in-box card(not phone memory). And you can not do anything about it. You can not also install too many Java applications as the S40 UI is customized to Touch UI.
6) Sound quality is good with a decent headset, No equalizer option in Music Player. Keypad is okay, no 3G so Internet is very slow. Basic phone features are good(like call quality etc.). The phone looks good(C2-06 Metallic). Camera is average. No onscreen key board to type MSG however you get a Dialler(touch).
**These points should be enough whether to go for it or not. Do not expect much from it. Look at the specifications carefully and be sure that it does exactly the same, not more.
i had saw a specification that this phone can be voice specified and i want to know how it is appilicable and how can i use it

i used to think nokia's handsets are superb but when i purchased nokia-c206 i'm very disapponted with this feature.
* Facility is not good for using internet.
* Picture quality was also not good.
It really look nice but after reading your opinions I think that I would buy nokia 808 I don't know I'm afraid If i brought it , it would disapoint me :(
