My A411 still works perfectly on Telstra 3G/4G network here in Australia as at March 2018, in city and country locations. Note that the 2G network has been shut down. I use the phone for voice and SMS only.
It has good performance in low signal-strength areas (Telstra blue tick), and has a socket for attaching a wired external antenna. Now that's SMART.
I would not describe it as a "feature phone", since it runs the Symbian operating system, though it's an early version and no apps are available.
Had this phone since introduction but now my Provider says it won't work with the new systems coming in. What O/S does it use and how do I transfer contacts to Galaxy J1 please.
It has served me well.
Learner, 30 Nov 2016Is this a G3 phone? 3G - UMTS 850 band only. If you expand the "network" section of the specs above, it will give you the details
Anonymous, 02 Feb 2015Turned phone on and "download" came up on front.Inside we only have an orange screen... moreHi.
What has happened is that when you turned on the phone you had your other finger on the 9 key pressing the nine key and the on/off key puts the phone into download mode. Remove the battery and replace battery turn on phone on and it all should be OK
Turned phone on and "download" came up on front.Inside we only have an orange screen. No buttons are working. We are pensioners and only ever make or receive calls.Plese how do we fix it?
I've had the phone for a couple of years (my first Samsung) and am very impressed. Would recommend it to anyone who wants an uncomplicated nextG phone with great coverage (including rural) and so many other positives - including battery life etc. etc. The only real problem for me is the VGA camera, and the only real problem there is the small image with lack of megapixels - otherwise camera (and video) is so easy to use. If the phone is still available - black colour is best as the red and silver have poor backlighting for the keys - difficult to read. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
how many messgaes at maximum does it hold in the inbox and sent/out box?
not the easiest phone to use ring tones and personal settings are limited but its functional.... i will never buy another one

I was thinking about buying this phone, it seems good value for money, but the antennea has me worried. Do you need it for better reception or is it just there to be ugly?
