Summary: This phone is one of my best phones, from Nokia. I had a phone like this before, it had good volume level, which made me look for another one like it when I needed another cell phone. This purchased phone had a low volume in its hearing, ringing and audio settings. I could barely hear the callers, especially in public places. I think it has something to do with either the phone's battery or a hardware than a software in the phone, relating to these 2 features.
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.
Summary: I'm currently using this phone under the $29.99 (talk-text) Family Mobile plan at Walmart. It doesn't get on the internet, but that's fine by me, because my plan doesn't allow it. The good: It makes calls and you can text on it. PLUS, it has a flashlight feature, which I think is neat. Also, you can create your own ringtones (plus, the pre-set ringtones aren't bad!) The bad: There's no way to turn the ear piece/speaker phone volume up or down.
Summary: This phone will make and receive calls but that is really all. The texting keyboard tries to guess what you are typing and is horribly wrong all the time so I completely gave up trying to send 'Hello World' to a friend after 5 minutes of typing. Of course no camera and its an old school cellphone, but I think the price could likely be even lower with the extremely low end tech included. It will get us by and works on T-Mobile with no issues.
Summary: Okay phone brought it to replace a blackberry! It CANT replace a blackberry! Dumbest replacement ever! Its good for people who dont care to have high end phones. It has email, web, text, phones, picture mail etc... Its okay picture quality is gross -_- seriously no good and messages take a while to send/receive and web is superrrr slow but that cause im used to the blackberry so for others it might not seem so bad. Its okay overall. buy with caution!
Summary: I have an Android smartphone on T-Mobile's network and it works well, but my plan only has 100 minutes to last the entire month. Since I occasionally have days when I have to make a lot of sales calls and my experience with VOIP has been nothing but bad, I decided to get another line and activate it on the $2 pay by the day plan. Basically, you pay $2 and get unlimited calling for that day, plus unlimited EDGE data.
Summary: Well I don't want to entirely give this phone a bad review but It wasn't a pleasant experience. I got it because i thought it would be a perfect phone for me since I am not a big fan of smart phones and what not. I needed a new phone since my old one started acting up. Anyway when i received the item everything seemed to be going good.
The Nokia 1661 is a no-frills phone for calls and texts only
9 September 2012
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.
Excerpt: Let me break it down. There is no way this phone can compare to any smartphone or any of the fancier models available in today's market, so I am not here to tell you how this phone is better than all others. All I can say is that this phone does what a phone is supposed to do: it makes and receives calls and texts, keeps your contacts and has the basic calendar, alarm and calculator. Nothing fancy, nothing amazing.
Excerpt: This is my husband's phone, and though it is not a phone I would ever want to use (I'm a Blackberry girl, myself) I will say that is seems to fit my husband's needs quite well. He is hard on phones, and is often dropping them in liquid. This Nokia can actually handle being submerged in water on multiple occasions before it stops workings. This phone is very inexpensive, we got it for $14.99, and it works just fine for calls and basic texting.
