After some initial problems with enabling surf/MMS Im now up and running. Im generally very pleased with C3-00 - although I would prefer Nokia adding offline Nokia maps 2.0 in future firmware updates. Nokia maps 3.0 was added to Nokia 6700 classic, so it CAN be done. I wouldnt hold my breath though. In the mean time one is stuck with online-demanding Google maps 2.3.2.
I agree with "c3_boi" that some criticism is really of target. Theres both a trade-of AND a flipside with a budget-phone like C3-00. Old trusty "Symbian s40" also means stable/very few crashes. 2G + minor screen-res + a big fat 1320 mAh battery means extraordinary long batterylife. Cheap also means less anxiety and more casual phone-use.
And by the way: the OP-system IS Symbian - although just s40. Its an updated version of s40v6. A nice surprice is that SMS now supports conversation-mode. One now also have direct-access to Photos (My photo, Timeline, My album).
How do you clear the cache of the opera browser. "clear private..." or something like that is not found in the options.
Can anyone help me?
Thank you in advance
I really do not quite comprehend why there are people who seems to can't quit complaining and whinning around how bad the phone is. First, this is a budget phone. Simple logic, have you ever seen a person who bought ferrari feature car that has a price of a fiat uno? For crying out loud.
The Phone for me is a superb phone. Those people who keep on complaining must have acquire it from a the grey market rather than directly from Nokia stores. I pity them. I never had any problem with htis handset whherein I ended up not using muvh of my high end blackberry handset.
I highly recommend this phone for those people who wants a great phone with great features.
It's not a perfect phone so keep whinning! It has it's own minute and tolerable flaws.
I need to install whatsapp for my C3, and I just can't find it online ... can anyone help?
I woudn't recommend anyone to buy C3-00, because I already made this mistake and all I discovered is that there's no office suite for it since it's s40-based (just looks like Symbian. don't fool yourselves), it's very slow (lags even when you exit the built-in Calculator), camera is awful (both still images and video are extremely low-quality and grainy), frequently crashes when you try to play videos that are saved on the memory stick, reboots out of nowhere, built-in Twitter/Facebook clients don't work when you go wireless, the built-in mail client also works only through GPRS, etc. And that's just the half of it, even though I'm with their latest firmware (4.60). The best part is the so-called "Wi-Fi" is absolutely unusable!!! And, if you think it's only my unit a faulty one, go to www.discussions.europe.nokia.com and see all the oppinions there for yourself - all NOKIA C3-00 have a SEVERE WI-FI DEFFECT! Do not fool yourselves, buy another phone.
