Hi all. I actually like the J132. I am considered by my friends to be a phone guru, because i have owned every single one in the Nokia communicator series from the original 9000 to the new E90. I have also LG Viewty, N95, SE k850 and most other High-end phones. The J132 in my opinion isa simple basic and straight forward phone. Ideal for a 1st time buy or a child. Its not customizable, so no music or ringtones or pictures or themes or anything like that, but it's still decent. Battery life is good. I am on my phone for about 6 or 7 hours per day and it still lasts me 2 days without charging. I like the weight and size too. Wasnt so sure about the 'torch functionality'. All i is, is a white screen and depends on how bright you have set your display. Here in England i paid £5 plus £10 top-up on Virgin network which also works fine with t-mobile network. For £5, i think it is EXECELLENT value for money.
How to put date on screen, like time appears? Is there any way to turn off vibration, but when you press silent button to turn it on again? Because i noticed that if the vibration is turned off and is set to silent, it won't vibrate when someone calls (i want vibration off when using ringtone)
thank you in advance for your answers
hiiiiiiii, this hand set is very good but this set betrry is low. the most advantage is looking very simple & nice............

awesome handset with usb charger and 3.5mm headset, so i can enjoy the radio anywhere and without carrying my charger because its use usb to charge the battery, i like hear the radio via my laptop speaker... its like real radio...
i have never been so blown away by the amount of features and gadgets on a phone!
this is definate must for 2009. and the vibrate function is so strong, my bum is still tingling merrily.
i bought it cause i need a mobile without a camera and with radio for the army. It is not that bad if you know what are you paying and for or you need a such phone. The main menu is very simple and very basic but it is well built as a plus i consider the option to minimize the radio. The sound quality is good both for ringing and talking. Although sms writing performance and easiness have nothing to do with a more expensive phone (you cannot erase a message from the list, t9 is not capable for new words) it supports group messaging and with a key the swap between the writing methods and languages. Battery is really amazing and the overall phone quality its not so cheap as the keypad is better from a few more expensive phones.
this phone really suck, u lost your money value if you buy it...really regret
when did the phone come out and can you put music and pictures on it
Joe, 26 Jan 2009Is this phone come with a "Torch" ?.The "Torch" function only displays a white screen, but it can be usefull.
Hello guys bought this phone a month ago, Its really a good mobile. Now got some question is this phone really support USB, if it is where should i download the drivers? Couldn't see the drivers on Sony Ericsson website...
Finally got hold of this phone, but I am really disappointed because of the lack of entering my own words in the T9 mode. Sigh... Guess I should just return to using nokia's low-end sets.
Anyone know if this phone has "acept call" ability (whitelist) like any other se phone?
So i dont have to hear a call from someone that not in my phonebook..
Frustrated, 19 Jan 2009It#s been asked before.....but no clear answer
How do you get the back of the phone to inse... moreI explained it and I think I was precise enough. To repeat myself:
Instructions on how to open it: there is a small hole in the back of the phone. Use your fingernail on that hole, pull it downwards (towards the USB and earphone connectors). It will click and slide down aproximatelly 1 mm. Now hold that small part that slided firmly, with fingernails of one hand and stick your other hand's fingernail (index finger) into MiniUSB port. Pull in opposite directions, it will open.
To eject battery there's a small hole inside on the lower part (close to USB ports), where you stick fingernail or screwdriver and it will pop out. SIM card is under the battery, easy to put in and remove.
If you eject the battery you will have to set the time & day again, but that's liek 15 seconds work.

How do you get the back of the phone to insert battery and SIM card?
Alarm clock doesn't work when phone is out!!! No spelling suggestions, you can't add words to the dictionary. Pitty because the rest is good.
its t9 typing speed is above average i.e. faster than other brands except Nokia. i can type 'complicated' twice fast w/o problem when all the keys were pressed correctly.
since there's no memory slot the stereo FM radio with RDS is very useful cos its 3.5mm audio jack is compatible with any standard earphone!
the best thing abt J132 is its price in UK. it cost just £4.84 plus £10 airtime purchase. i only paid £4.84 in total after trade-in my old nokia phone. and its unlocked too.
Efire -> go for it. its better than j120
