Decent free phone but missing the bells and whistles
9 September 2012
Excerpt: If your looking for the latest and greatest in techincal advances in your cellphone this is not the phone for you. However, If your like I was and looking for a decent phone with not alot of complexity and extra features this may be what you are looking for. When I first bought this phone I had looked at several websites for reviews, One website stated this phone had a built in Am/Fm tuner which I was trilled about. So I ordered the phone.
Summary: I had purchased this as a gift for my father-in-law back in India. My wife used it for few mots as our secondary phone. The speakers are not that loud enough to notice a incoming call. The build quality is ok as expected from Nokia. Unfortunately this product did not work in India due to band difference and now it is used as a paper weight in India.
Couple important details not in the reviews below from ...

Summary: Matthew and Vik: At least at present in my state, when you order the phone as a GoPhone at the AT&T site, they will tack on tax based on what they say is the full retail value of the phone, so that added $14 or so to make it a $23 phone. Yes, that's still better than buying it unlocked elsewhere, but should be kept in mind when comparing to other phones you are considering.
Summary: I bought 2 of them from Amazon. I received them but they were not unlocked, I had to pay separately to unlock them. Besides this, the phone is fine. Very basic, but is what I need for a low price. Update: After using the phone for 1 month, I meet my expectations. The signal is good, the volume is great, and the phone looks very good, not cheap made. The camera is not powerful, but anyway I see it as a plus. The radio works fine.
Summary: I ordered this Nokia Classic 2330 mobile by mistake as I wanted the other one which is Nokia Classic 2730. This mobile does not have the Memory SD Micro Card so I am returning it. Paying the extra I preferred to have the Nokia Classic 2730 but they look identical and nothing wrong with mobile either. It is all preference.
Summary: This is a stylish little mobile from Nokia. Slightly more than basic with pleasant ring tones and excellent and clear reception particularly with the radio.The e-mail and internet facilities are difficult to access which is a nuisance. To access the e-mail facility which is fairly quick you need to press retrieve on each e-mail which sometimes takes ages. Browsing the net is a whole to-do and is very off putting.
Summary: I purchased this phone on the high street, so don't have experience of amazon's delivery. It is ideal if you don't want anything complicated but has a few problems which may or may not affect you. It finds signal well - the signal where I live is atrocious with any phone! The call and text facilities work well, and the radio works reasonably well if you find the correct position. I have been satisfied with the battery life.
