just had one yesterday, and the phone was great, want to know how to delete logs.e.q. call logs, missed calls etc. thanks

is not good at all
i just buy tis fone and it got a problem
i can hang easily when u make a call
it also cannot switch on after u charging up..
so i had to sent tis fone to nokia centre.
tis fone are rubbish...
I ordered the phone today for 200$ too, and that's what I call a "budget phone". For a high midrange phone it's quite interesting.
I can't wait to have it in my hands! :)
I was considering purchasing this phone. I like the touch-and-type concept because lets face it, one-handed texting on a touch screen handset can be quite a chore. Specially if you're in a hurry. A few months ago, this model was being marketed as a "budget phone" which made it even more attractive to me as a back-up mobile.
Lo and behold, today (Nov. 9, 2010) it's being sold here in the Philippines close to USD$200. I don't know about you, but that doesn't sound like a "budget phone" to me. Unless Nokia Philippines does something about the pricing, I doubt this phone will sell well here.
Touchscreen and QWERTY phones are all the rage here. Something priced this much with an "old fashioned" keypad will be the last thing on consumers' minds this coming Holiday Season. Prepare for an Epic Fail Nokia.
I would like to use Ovi Maps / Nokia Maps on the X3-02 even if it doesn't have GPS. Does anyone know if Maps can be installed or if there will be a S40 Touch And Type version at all?
After having read several reviews it seems that this phone doesn't come with any sort of maps pre-installed, and as the GSMarena review revealed, Google Maps (at least in it's current, non-Touch & Type-optimized version) doesn't work with this device.
To comment on the nokia bashers: Nokia is doing what they should. Making decent phones for good value.
This phone has what I need; It has a good touchscreen, it has a numeric keypad and it's light. I don't want a chuncky touchscreen phone, loaded with stuff I am not going to use. This phone is a your basic workstation and not some SLI QuadCore powerhouse.
I played with this phone for about 10-15 min. and it's a great phone. If you want more gadgets or better browsing, buy this phone and buy a V4 IpodTouch for your multimedia stuff. Because let's face it. It's still just a phone..

AZIZ ABBASI, 31 Oct 2010Nokia X3-2 Here iz in Pakistan the price of Nokia X3-2 iz 15800 but i wna ask one question ... moreCan you please tell me which part (city & area) in Pakistan is the price of X3-02 for Rs.15,800? As I have been asked to pay Rs.17,000 for this mobile. Thanks
Since I tried wife's 5230, I have multiple times trying to access menus on my E52 with touching screen, so add GPS and you have a customer :)
A tip for UK buyers:
If you just want a handset (as opposed to a contract deal) - Fones4U have X3-02 in-store at £120 including £10 of credit on Orange SIMcard.
However, the device is not locked to Orange and is not branded - so you can use your existing SIM.
Better than paying £159 for a handset as advertised elsewhere...

So you can listen to music whilst browsing or texting, but you can't switch rapidly between programs like yo can with, say Symbian60.
That said, apps open & close very quickly with S40 on this device, so i don't think it'll be a problem for many people
Just spent the last few days playing with my new X3-02 (which accompanies my Nokia N900)
A very capable, smart and unobtrusive device for a 'dumb phone' Battery life seems very good if you're in a strong signal area and stay off the GPRS and WiFi (use it like a smartphone and it'll eat battery like a smartphone) After the initial cahrge and discharge I easily get over two days use with average use (whatever that is)
The overall interface just works and is more than snappy enough. The keypad takes a little getting used to (*,# and 0 keys to the right) but the button action is nice - so good to be able to speed-dial by feel again!
The camera is pretty good - EDOF delivers consistent, if not ultimate quality. No problems outside in good light, but suffers in low light. Video is surprisingly good on high quality.
I could easliy use this as my main device; You have to bear in mind the advantages of simplicity and efficiency: there are far 'better' devices with better cameras, music players, web browsers, bigger screens, etc., but these come at the expense of price, bulk and battery life.
The X3-02 will accompany me just about everywhere - you hardly know you're carrying it. Good battery life can be further enhanced by carrying a fully-charged spare in my wallet (they are tiny) and the camera is more than good enough for the odd snap. I can access my email, twitter and facebook with ease and the Opera browser even allows decent web browsing. It's stylish even manages to attract admiration from smartphone owners.
What more could you want?
What more do you

Do you have any idea what does it mean by multitasking? Is that it cannot run two programs simultaneously in the background? What's your experience about it?
