Worst Phone ever

Ken, Phone Arena
11 February 2011
  • Excerpt: This is the worst phone ever. I drop calls 20 times a day, the battery needs to be recharged after 40 minutes worth of use, and the sound.quality is not much better than Skype. According to Metro's coverage Map I should have good service but it sucks. Both Metro and Nokia will not stand behind this phone. I will never buy a Nokia phone or use the Metropcs service again.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Drops most of my calls;, Battery lasts only 40 minutes, Lousy sound quality, Poorest antenna signal is the worst, Gets hot after charging

It's alright for temporary usage

  • Excerpt: PROs: ~Cheap ~small ~easy to read number pad with light-up backgrounds ~internet ready ~in-depth alarm clock ~Includes Tip Calculator CONs: ~Software lags ~Not texting friendly ~Not browser friendly (pressing UP can mean moving both moving upward and previous page) ~Loud Speaker is not so loud Texting can be torturous, would not recommend this phone to anyone that relies heavily on text messaging (such as myself, which explains the low review).

I Hate This Phone!

MunchWife, Phone Arena
3 September 2010
  • Excerpt: 1. Dropped calls 2. Dropped calls 3. Dropped calls 4. OFTEN, (and not having it set to 'silent' or vibrate only) the phone doesn't ring at all but will sound an alert for a message seconds after it was left. 5. Changing Profiles takes 5 presses (plus navigation) even though I have set it with Profiles at the top of the settings list. 6. Alarm doesn't go off or goes off at some unspecified time. 7.

theatrecats, Phone Arena
23 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Dropped calls, low volume, texts arriving 30-45 minutes later, turns on and off by itself, NOTHING positive to say about this little phone - DO NOT BUY. Gets so heated when re-charging, God only knows how many grey cells this phone has killed when I have tried to use it! POOR quality, NOKIA really blew it on this phone.
  • Pros: NOT one
  • Cons: Poor quality

POS!!! DO NOT BUY!!!

katethegreat, Phone Arena
2 July 2010
  • Excerpt: I have had this phone for almost two months now. The screen freezes, it randomly turns off by itself. This morning I woke up and it was dead. I plugged in the charger and nothing. It wouldn't even turn on. Finally it started to charge but then it kept shutting off even more than usual. My aunt bought this for me off of Metro PCS website for 30 dollars. Should have known right then how it would be lol.

User Review

Anonymous, Phone Arena
24 March 2010
  • Excerpt: One of my fav fones. only con was the not being able to receive multimedia messages. Bought an aftermarket battery off Ebay for like 5 bucks that worked soooooo much better than the stock nokia battery it came with. Internet works hella faster than the other phones I've had and the "newer ones" that me and my man just upgraded to. You can download media and pics right off the net.
  • Pros: Faster internet than most phones, Download media off net, and bluetooth, you get to specify numbers to NOT call you! best part of the phone!
  • Cons: no cam, no mms

Most Disappointing Nokia Ive Ever Owned

Pedro, Phone Arena
5 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Ive had this phone for less than a year and Ive already had to swap it twice due to the same issues. Ive have preferred Nokias for over 10 years and this is by far the worse ever made.This phone is alright for the modest user who only make a few phone calls but it is horrible for the user like myself who likes to put to use many of its functions and relies on the calendar and reminders on a daily basis. This phone has thoroughly disappointed me. Pro's 1.

Most Disappointing Nokia Ive Ever Owned

Pedro, Phone Arena
5 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Nokia has definitely reduced their quality in this phone. Ive already had to swap this phone twice in a few months & all 3 phones had the same issues they cant address. This phone is alright for the very modest cell phone user who simply makes phone calls infrequently & nothing else. For those like myself who frequently use various functions, this phone is sub-par & by far the worse brick-style phone Nokia has ever created. I have been drastically disappointed.

Great for the Price

4bestway, Phone Scoop
1 September 2009
  • Excerpt: This is not a smartphone, but for the user that just wants a great little phone with basic functions, it is well worth the price. I use it with a Bluetooth speaker system and it works very well. The built-in speaker phone is not all that great but it does work. I like the small size. Text messaging works fine. I like the bar phone shape and often use it like a microphone when talking to groups. A good basic phone. Much better than any trac phone.

AVOID

James1111, Phone Arena
17 July 2009
  • Excerpt: DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE! You'll be tempted to by the price and the look of the thing -its small and sleek- but thats where it ends. The battery life is terrible. You can charge it one night andf the next day it will die, have more than 3 conversations in one day and expect not to have a phone by that night. Thats the worst part of it ***** BATTERY LIFE!
  • Pros: Tiny!
  • Cons: Terrible battery life!!!!!, Drops calls constantly!
