Excerpt: I recommend if you want to use simple Mobile or Want to have a backup phone than this phone is for you. Best Ever, I had it for about a year and half, and it was perfect. Actually i want it to use because i kind a use to it now. For SMS typing its perfect with smooth and soft buttons which won't worn-out as other phones.
Pros: I don't see any other mobile as perfect as this one.
Cons: They should put camera of about 1MegaPixel or 1.5, that would have make it my permanent use-phone (For Life)
Summary: Just opened the box and loaded it up with 2 sims. So far the reception isn't very good. I live in an area that has weak to no service anyway but compared to all my other phones that show 1-2 bars and this dual sim phone doesn't show any bars no matter where I stand indicates not very good antenna. The real test will come when I am in an area with good service.
Excerpt: It does what it says, great call and sms. Awesome battery life, i think it could last a week or more, as i just got this phone recently. but note that i've saw some review stating that the early batch of the phone which came with the frimware version 6.30 or those pre v6.65 version are having auto restart problem and auto activation of loundspeaker during call (press *#0000# to check), but as stated you can updated to the latest firmware by going to the nearest Nokia...
Pros: Battery Life, Good reception, Practical Design
Excerpt: I have bought this phone for basic calls and messaging. The Design is the worst, not very sleek, looks very bulky for a phone that does nothing much, the back panel cover is not seated properly [when I am on call, there is this squeaky sound it makes when holding it, very irritating], there is no proper grip to hold the phone [it keeps slipping], the graphics is horrible [some Indian designer must have done it, because these phones are being manufactured in India...
Cons: Bulky, No Grip, No support for WAP/BT/USB, No good games
a bit annoying for me that has not italian as T9 language

Summary: resistant, i've dropped it so many times and it's still responding well. battery life is not as long lasting as the previous nokias but still you can do 3 days with it. a bit annoying for me that has not italian as T9 language. speakers are very quiet and at times is very hard to hear people.
Five stars for practicality and ease of use, as well as battery life.

Summary: I have used this phone for just over a month and bought this dual sim phone to take it on holiday so I could still receive calls or texts from UK, but also take advantage of cheap local calls by using a local sim for the duration of the holiday. I was really impressed how easy it was to choose through which sim I wanted my call to go. It was easy to set up everything when I first got the phone. There is a slot for music memory card, but I haven't used this facility.
Phone great but came with German instructions and two-pin charger

Summary: The phone arrived very promptly and is great, especially the dual SIM feature. Battery life appears very good. However, the paper instructions are in German (although the phone menu is all in English) and it has a two-pin charger that needs an adaptor for the UK. I have re-checked the product description and this is not mentioned.
