r.k, 02 Feb 2013Dear friends...
I'm using andiod on galaxy and want to move on nokia due to battery and inter... morer.k bro... Symbian phones production has officially been terminated. But I suppose it will keep on being supported is some way or other for some more time. If you want to move to Symbian just for the battery, it is your personal choice. Yes Nokia Store also offers many apps and games etc... but nowhere quite like on Android market. Android phones get the latest in development and many developers have moved on to developing for the Android phones. But Nokia still offers considerable goodies. Most of the built in Apps are good on a Symbian, while you have to download many utilities for the Andorid phones. However, I would not advice you to move to Symbian ... specially now that the production has been killed.
Skype, Facebook and Viber are all available for Symbian... but you will feel that they lack the fluidity. Skype and Viber do not have voice support.
Why dont you try a Nokia Windows phone.
I'm using andiod on galaxy and want to move on nokia due to battery and internal memory problem.
Some body was saying nokia stopped supporting symbions is it true? then what will happen to old symbions?
can we download free online apps as andiod...?
and how good it support face book, viber and skype?
Does it have a recording option for its FM radio? I'm searching for a phone that offers this.
one thing i dislike about this phone is the poor reception because of the aluminum used. Its much more likely to lose signal compared to any other phone i have used. battery life is also poor but its easily solvable if you buy the 701's battery.
I used to have this phone for 2 years and i can only say that its absolutely brilliant. The only downfall is that it was too slow when browsing heavy internet pages, and also the poor baterry (solved when i bought the 701's battery). Otherwise the build quality is out of this world. it fell numerous times and nothing ever happened. Symbian belle is very convenient and tuns smooth. It had some goodies that were rare at the time like NFC, and some others that cant be found ANYWHERE now like the FM transmitter. Music player was better than the one i currently have on android. If only symbian wasnt dead...
pete, 01 Feb 2013Ashman is it possible to connect a portable usb hard drive to my nokia c7pete, I often successfully connect pen drives of various capacities. I have also connected a mouse and an eternal keyboard. I have only once successfully connected a small external hard drive to the phone. The thing is external hard drives require considerable power to operate (they are actually laptop hard drives and laptops require considerably more power to run). I believe that if the drive can be powered through an external power supply, the phone would be able to read it. Otherwise, it might be asking for too much from a not so powerful cell phone.
Go ahead and try it and let us know. Cheers!!!
this phone is great, highly recommended for gaming, playing videos, capable with hd games and play videos with 720p, it can play mkv,,
very very nice,

My Nokia C7:00 feel from my hand and hits a very hard surface but no damage was done to the screen. Superb phone
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2013i dont agree your commentWhile it is true that the type and amount of use determines battery life of a phone, it also depends upon the screen size and apps and apps running in the background etc etc. But given the same battery capacity and similar CPU & GPU and similar screen size etc, I belive Symbian can beat the Droids ... at least in battery life.
... It is purely my opinion.
bebz, 21 Jan 2013Can you be able to download medical dictionary and bible or quran in this phone, if yes how?. ... moretry n8fanclub that's where i got my medical dictionary i don't know if they got the other apps hope the info will help u
Ashman, 27 Jan 2013Hey Sid bro... the battery is much better than on Androids. Use a Droid and then comment.i dont agree your comment
eddy, 26 Jan 2013someone help me I've got a call screen problem any time I make a call or receive a call my s... moreeddy, the problem you mentioned is not even a problem. The Proximity sensor in the phone turns off the screen when you make or receive a call and bring the phone up to your ear. It does not happen when you use handsfree.

Ive been using this baby for over a year now and oh my im soooo in-love, but then what else can u expect from Nokia " only thee best" . And the best thing about it is that u don't just find it anywhere and not many people have it, its not too big or too small , not too slim and not too heavy its just perfect. Thanks Nokia
Symbian is officially dead now... a sad day for all of us and Symbian lovers. That means no more support from Nokia. I will however continue to use C7 till I move to another platform. It could be Android or WP. I guess we now hold a treasure in our hands now… or it could be junk depending upon how you feel. I still feel C7 is a brilliant piece of engineering and feels solidly built and fits the pocket easily. Just wish there were more apps. Android has won due to sheer number of Apps.
I have a Samsung SDuos, which my wife uses. It is inferior to C7 but the apps are great.
I guess Nokia as a company has taken a wise decision to put Symbian to rest and move on with WP. Let’s hope they continue to show their innovative approach and win the public back.
