If you need a very basic celphone this works great.

  • Summary: It does the job, good quality, hardy, and battery life is long. Cons: Buttons are small for some..for those with thick fingers.

Works fine for what I need

Bob Tyler, Amazon

  • Summary: OK, this is my emergency phone. I will only use it to take with me for calling AutoClub or the hospital! (I don't have another cell-phone). So for that purpose it seems fine. It is slim, light, fairly easy to use. Takes and receives call fine, audio quality acceptable. I don't know if it's just the one I got, but the menu is a little wonky. Sometimes it comes up, sometimes not. I dunno, maybe I'm not pushing the buttons hard enough.

great for the price and like the fm radio

Henry, Amazon

  • Summary: I only use my phone for basic calls and an occasional text which is why I have a prepaid phone at 10 cents per minute. I dont want to pay all that money to the cell phone companys for the smart phones and internet although if I had the extra cash I would. This Nokia 1616 is a great bonus for people like me because you get an fm radio with it. I like this feature very much.

Makes/Receives Phone Calls, Easy to Write Texts, Does What You Want a Phone to Do

James N Simpson, Amazon
25 August 2012
  • Summary: This is simply a review of the actual Nokia 1616 handset, not T-Mobile or whatever carrier or prepay service Amazon is packaging with it on this page. This review is simply for people like I was, who when their old phone has died, need to get another cheap one, and are looking for info on the ones they've seen in junk mail catalogues, online websites or in the isles of department stores to make sure they are not buying a dud.

Good cheap phone

  • Summary: No problem with this phone. Long stand by battery life. Can't beat the price. Bought a gel cover to protect it and it feels much sturdier now. The only sad thing is you cannot download new ringtones to it.

An adequate basic phone

Tsarli, Phone Arena
26 May 2010
  • Excerpt: With the market saturated with iPhone wannabes, its comforting to note that major mobile manufacturers like Nokia have not forgotten an important demographic: the basic phone segment. There is still a substantial demand for these simple no-nonsense handsets. Not everyone wants a camera, bluetooth , touch screen or microwave oven in their handset, the 1616 has none of those but it does do what a phone was built to do: Make and take calls and send/receive text messages.
  • Pros: 1) Basic but sleek design., 2) Minimalist look and feel for those who want it., 3) FM radio compatible with 3.5" headphones., 4) FM sound on loudspeaker mode is excellent., 5) Adequate battery life., 6) Flashlight (torch).
  • Cons: 1) Some menus are very counter intuitive., 2) Alerts aren't loud enough., 3) Voice calls sound tinny and plasticky., 4) Saves a copy of your sent SMS (thinks its a Sony Ericsson).
