The Nokia-1661 Cell Phone is the worst cell phone ever!
9 September 2012
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...
Excerpt: I recently bought the Nokia 1661 back in August of 2010. It has been a terrible phone so far. It isn't fancy or anything, but it gets the job done that I need it to do once in awhile... If the phone wouldn't stop turning off on its own. Some of the awesome features include a flashlight (great for when you need to see the key hole on the door handle), a calculator, a calendar, and a couple crappy games.

Pros: Relatively easy to use, but learn through trial and error, no directions given
Cons: Sells minutes but doesn't say what costs are for local or international Extremely expensive, 50 cents a minute to Canada, 13 cents local No help at retailer for activation, or usage information - terrible
T-Mobile PrePaid Service is Awful, Phone is Cheesy

Summary: If you're planning on getting a prepaid with T-Mobile, just buy the phone. Keep in mind that the activation will take at least 24 and up to 48 hours to get into the system. DO NOT purchase the refill cards on line, don't purchase the card with the phone. Get your cards from a T-Mobile store (not at Best Buy) because the online store might send you an invalid refill card and it's almost impossible to get the problem fixed (Best Buy will tell you to call the customer care...
Cons: voicemail not easily accessible. Goes straight to vm without ringing. Alarm clock rings whenever it feels like (set to 5:15 am - rang at 12:15, 2:15 and 4:15). Can't save phone numbers to SIM card easily.
