Summary: Works good as a backup phone .I think this might be the only nokia feature phone with 3G capability. Squeezes a couple of days battery backup easily. Another benefit is that it uses micro sim , for when the juice runs out of your smartphone you can easily pop the sim without looking for sim adapters. Micro usb charging is another plus as chargers can be found easily. Battery gives up early when 3G is on , keep that in mind.
Summary: Good basic Nokia phone,without all the techno bells & whistles,so back to basics indeed. However,be warned,if you buy this sim-free,as I did,you'll need to replace your old standard size sim with a micro sim card to fit this new phone.You'll also need to order a new separate memory card as this comes with no memory card at all which I thinks a real let down indeed!

Summary: A few years ago, Nokia made a mobile phone, model numbered 5230 - a semi-smart, sim-free, touchscreen phone, with 16gb memory card compatability - like this 208, to a degree. Here we are in 2014 with a similarly priced Nokia 208 moblie, which can accommodate a (bigger) 32gb micro memory card, is sim-free, and still semi smart.
