Which one you think suits you best? All of these are in C5212 and B5702.

I knew the sim/pin lock was there from the power up function, but I'm wondering if they can be password protected from the sim management menu, ie,, when switching sim's can i password protect at point of switching. Hope this makes sense.

Security for SIM cards is there, both PIN lock (Security > SIM > PIN lock) and for switching SIM cards (Security > Phone > SIM lock). Those options are individually available for each SIM card.

It's a 2-in-1 mobile, battery is supposed to end earlier. I have my cell phones turned on 24/7 and usually charged D880 & B5702 once every 3 days (2 if I had make many calls).
Felipe said: 22'nd June:
"Just got mine today and I must say this model won me over D880 (which I own too)."
So, Sam is right, Lee... maybe Felipe keeps it on the shelf because it is so beautiful to look at?;-)

One question if I can please.
I have the c5212 which i like very much, however the one thing missing is security for the sim cards. Can you tell me if the B5702 has password protection when switching the sim's on and off from the sim management menu ?
thanks in advance

Thanks for the nice comparison. Its a good indicative for potential buyers. Do update us on the battery lifespan. Thanks alot.
It seems like Filipe only receive his phone somewhere around 24th Jul.

Still waiting for mine:-(
Lee, 27 Jul 2009Hi Filipe,
Are you able to help us to compare the basic functionality of both B5702 and C52... moreWell, they are from the same brotherhood so both have very similar functions. B5702 is faster in menus, has better screen resolution so images and menus look nicer. C5212 in red color looks cheap for the plastic cover, but it's not supposed to be higher class like B5702 which looks much more professional. However I don't dislike my red C5212, it does its job and was less expensive.
In B5702 when you get to call manager and choose Reject list, there is an option that you can tick if you want to reject 'unknown' callers; in C5212 this option isn't explicitly there but you can select an 'unknown' caller and use left softkey to bring a menu then choose 'Add to Reject' list so it's no big deal.
People like me who love that C key (in D880 & B5702) for deleting characters, numbers and files might sorely miss it in C5212. I personally don't like going into menus and selecting "Delete", that's one of the reasons I don't like Nokia mobiles.
When it comes to shortcuts, C5212 has less options than B5702. My B5702 came from Spain and my C5212 came from Hong Kong, both have the Contacts menu on right softkey. We brazilians are used to get our contacts by pressing down on D-pad so I was able to have this behavior in B5702 (can access contacts by either pressing D-pad down or right softkey), but in C5212 I can't do the same as 'Contacts' isn't available as a possible shortcut.
Can't comment on battery duration though, as I received C5212 too recently and only gave it one full charge, as you might know batteries need to be fully charged 3 to 4 times before they achieve their best performances.
As I told my C5212 came from Hong Kong and indeed it has the capability of recording up to 60 minutes of phone conversation (only for primary SIM). My B5702 came from Spain and can't do that unfortunately. I don't know if asian B5702 are able to record phone conversations, would like very much to know that.
They both have loud volume but I prefer the sound quality on B5702. It's a better product, it's worth its cost so if you can pay the extra money I suggest you go for it. At eBay USA you can get C5212 for US$ 200.00 (shipping included). In Europe there are online stores selling B5702 for prices betwen €215.00 and € 249.00 plus shipping, it's just a matter of looking.

Are you able to help us to compare the basic functionality of both B5702 and C5212 since you have both? Like the talking sound quality, speed of the phones, loudness of the speaker phone, battery lifespan, etc ? Thanks.

According to specifications B5702 weighs only 4 grams more than D880 but it feels heavier than that. I like B5702 more because it's faster too, the calculator has bigger buffer space for digits, I can block 'unknown' callers, can use whatever SIM I like.
Only find a little bit more difficult to get used to the new way of working for the switch button. You own both D880 and B5702 so you know what I'm talking about: people who never used D880 might get used to it in no time, but we who still use both models sometimes forget what SIM B5702 was left on the last time. While in D880 it's always the primary SIM :)
Have the D880 and got the 5702. Just seems a better phone, quicker, more sleek,just better really, can't finger it but I like it more
Fanboy, 23 Jul 2009Does this model have also the sms Problem like D880. Will it recive sms when it was off before... moreHonestly, I never experienced what you just described with any of my D880 (I owned 3 of them) and certainly not with B5702. Since I still own a D880, I just tested both now and less than a minute after turning both on, they received the SMS I sent while they were off. I guess it's a problem with your operator, Fanboy.
