Summary: Small compact, good for basic calls & text. I bought it because I only use it once every 1 or 2 years. However one problem is that I cannot find a free Unlock code. If you buy a locked version you will have to find a pay service to unlock it. I would like to have the ability to switch to any service with an unlocked phone. Seems this type of BB5 or DCT4 Plus phone cannot be unlocked by any free service. Currently it only can be used with T-mobile.
Excerpt: It was my second phone. It is a very basic colour screen GSM phone which is ideal for someone who drops phones quite often and needs a long battery life. The torch/flashlight feature is quite handy.
Summary: This is a great basic phone and has the great battery life Nokia phones are known for. We bought this phone for its simplicity and ease of use, though the buttons are small. We like the small size as it fits in your pocket easily.
Summary: Even though the product description said Unlocked, I got a locked T-Mobile phone. I found out kind of late as I tested the product 6 months later when I was travelling and got the SIM card. I will find out how good is their customer service soon.
Summary: Bought this Nokia to be used as basic phone. It is as easy as they come as far as use and maneuvering through the menu. The calls stay up and audio is crispy clear. It is tough and durable, reminds me of the cell phones that Nokia used to make for Europe markets.
Very simple and easy to use phone for texting and calling.

The phone is very simple to use, I like it. The only thing i dont like about the phone is the buttons, they make this knirking sound every time to press a button.

Excerpt: I had left my usual cell phone on the bus a few months ago, I have a plan with AT&T so I went out a bought a new cell phone. I wasn't looking for a great interactive cell phone, I was just looking for something to get me through for the time being. What I wanted was a cell phone that could make phone calls and thats it, because I have been meaning to get a better phone and loosing my current phone gave me a reason to just grab a regular cell phone and research a good...
The Nokia 1661 is a no-frills phone for calls and texts only

Excerpt: If you're in the market for a cellphone, you could either hate this phone or love it, but it depends entirely on what you need out of a phone. The Nokia 1661 is absolutely barebones with minimal functionality, a typical user interface with much to be desired if you actually care - BUT if you just need a phone for emergency and once-in-awhile calls, it's the perfect phone.
