i bought this phone yesterday,its an amazing phone with its super coool keypad and good sound quality
got the model just 4 days back it is good with few features but what bothers me is the trouble with calls which keep on dropping, can't get through it and most of the time calls get disconnected after some 30-40 secs. in spite of having full coverage. I had some very impt calls but just got crashed out in between. I m not a gadget geek or interested in high end models but definitely need it for basic purpose of contacting but in vain......... can the nokia people help out with some solution.
This is a very good mobile phone. I am thanks to Nokia company for production this type of mobile. This mobile battery backup and sound quality is very nice. I am really satisfied to use this mobile.

in real.. how many days does this phone actually last, say on very low usage, with few sms's and mostly idle?
good hand set,good batt life ,best ring and mp3 vol,really very loud,good torch ,nice keypad while typing but not best like 1112 or 1202 or 1110,.the biggest and worst fault in this set is the SIGNALS PROBLEM,on one moment you have full signals and on other no signals at all,that's .calling is the basic function of every mobile phone ,so if its not good ,all its good points are multiplied with 0,so this phone is zero i used it with very keen observation........DONT BUY IT.
I find this phone to be worth its money 100% because the battery(BL-5J)that Nokia has provided for this model is worth more than half the price of the phone itself. Not only that the battery lasts easily past 4 days if you use it on single Sim. Just drop into a Nokia store and ask for the price of a Nokia 5800 battery and you would be surprised.
The things I like about this phone are the external speaker, the sound is as loud as a horn and the glossy finish to the body gives a richer look at a glance. The display is colorful and is perfectly sized and the torch comes in handy always. 3.5mm Jack is perfect to use the phone as a Walkman or plug it into an external sound source like your car stereo. When you talk about music, you are talking about memory too and you will not be disappointed by the 16GB memory support it offers you to have all your favorite music on a cheap phone dedicated specially for music lovers. You need to get used to the keypad because you don't get that soft feel like you get in a rubber Nokia 1280 but it does it job while it maintains its glassy class. It is not easily prone to scratch though the finish is totally glass like on the front, you keep your fingernails away to keep the scratches away.
The things I don't like about this phone are
1. The Dual Sim technology, it is crap compared to Samsung since the phone restarts too many times and sometimes if you have loaded identical operator Sims, you might lose the network on one of your active Sims and you cannot predict which one and when.
2. The music player is very basic and you get confused when you search for music within folders. It also lacks the FF and RW option though you find dedicated music keys.
3. No USB support to sync music though it has a memory card slot, you have to use an adapter to copy the music onto your memory card which is not provided.
4. No support for images which mean no wallpapers or caller ID pictures. (Not really necessary at such a price range but it would have made the device a little more market worthy)
5. Fingerprint magnet but you cant have everything now can you???
6. You hear your own voice through the microphone to the earpiece which I don't know why. Software problem??? very unlikely.
7. The phone becomes squeaky after some time when you keep removing the back panel often which makes the phone feel cheap in your hands...
Conclusion: It is worth every penny you spend and what more can you expect when it is ranged at a very basic price? Just go for it...

nokia engineers r just wasting companies money & time in nokia they r manufacturing a garbage like x1-01.
all users kindly get aware if u insert the same network provider's 2 different sims.
for eg. " if a costumer having airtel
1st sim postpaid of airtel & ( for official use )
2nd sim pre-paid of airtel ( personal use )
then the network will have clash between them & u wl not gent any network
according to nokia a costumer have do what they will tell. they will not keep in mind our convince while manufacturing."
a brainless million dollar multinational company with a team of brainless engineers.
1.loses all the call register data on switching off the mobile
2.switches of by itself sometimes
