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: 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.
Pros: Powerful flashlight, Good sound, Cheap, Functional
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: Not able to find a single issue. This is a basic entry level Dual-Band GSM phone. Do not expect a camera, games, a huge display etc., Only thing is the caller on the other end can tell you are on a cell due to the bottom hole voice receiver like on the older Nokias. Otherwise this phone is the best basic one out there in regards to price and dependebility.
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.
Excerpt: This is a cheap replacement phone for a cheap phone.
As a communications device, it actually has more useful phone features than the Nokia 2610 it replaced. Sure the screen is low resolution, but the numbers are easier to see, it has a louder speaker, and its easy to use. The reason for a "4" was the short battery life. I need a phone, not a phone-camera-PDA-music player. I have an iPod Touch for the PDA, music player, and portable internet.
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.
