Summary: I have had a phone like this Nokia all 10 years I have had a cell phone. It does what I need it to do: makes calls and be reliable. I purchased a replacement for $14 when my old one went through the washing machine. I put in my old SIM card and I was ready to go. I did not shed a tear when it was broken unlike a Apple 5 user ($700 cell phone).
Excerpt: With the help of my 1208 flashlight, my walk-in-the-dark is not so torturous anymore. Sometimes when we have been using highly upgraded mobile phones, where we don’t even use the “other special features” that made the phone so very expensive, we tend to settle for the very simpler ones. I for one have been feeling that already, that’s why I opted for the Nokia 1208. It provides me with my communication needs without spending too much.
Excerpt: This is a very basic phone, perfect for the essentials (SMS, calls, phonebook). It's durable, but the keypad is fragile. The best thing is the flashlight, and the sound. I've used by two years and still working.
Summary: It was a gift and they LOVED it. Their previous Nokia 1208 got ran over by a forklift so they have been mourning that phone for quite some time. So I decided to buy another one for them. They couldn't have been happier, got all the features back. Mostly the flashlight. Love it.
Excerpt: I got this phone for $20 and I found out I could have gotten it at Walgreens for $15
With that said, I love the phone, it gets great service with T-Mobile, it has a flashlight, it's small and Nokia.
T-Mobile is cheap and nice to me on the phone
Alarm clock will not ring when it's set to the time. 17min before or 3 hours later. You have to use the calendar or reminder in order to have an alarm.
Excerpt: Had it for about a year before moving to a Blackberry. Never let me down, great call quality, durable although I cracked the display cover after sitting on it. Still sitting in my drawer and will crank it up again if something happens to the 'berry.
Not a lot of features, but the flash light came in very handy on several occasions.
