Excerpt: I just wanted long time a phone and nothing else to use as a secondary phone. Nokia 1208 is excellect in this regard, it has loud ring tones, clear sound, and very sleek and handy. Only after purchasing, I found the flashlight feature, which means it can be used as a torch. Now I have my torch always with me, no need to search one during power cuts. so it is very-very good thanks nokia.
Summary: Lousy phone. The screen scratches easily. It's virtually impossible to read in bright daylight, even with maximum contrast. The keypad doesn't illuminate so you can't use it in the dark. The navigation button is very temperamental and needs careful use. Scrolling through its memory is slow. Incoming caller volume is low, and there doesn't appear to be a way to increase it.
Summary: Not a great deal to say about this ordnary little phone compared to what is on the market. However this was bought for a nine year old boy and he was thrilled with it. Unfortunately I couldnt fnd a cover for it, they were more expensive than the handset. At the present it is doing its job as required of it. A great Nokia starter phone.
Summary: This is a very VERY basic phone. I bought it when my expensive contract phone got broken, I needed a cheap open network phone to take my sim as I was still paying my contract. I does what I bought it to do, text and phone but it is so basic its infuriating. The battery lasts about 18 hours, so its on charge every night. 10-15 texts and the memory is full. The contact list is obscure, some contacts are shown as mobile numbers, some as names.
Summary: Bought this to replace my ageing but reliable Nokia 1100 (black and white display!) But quickly ditched it on account of its even clunkier interface and low resolution screen. Save up for something else.
