Summary: I would hesitate to gave this phone any stars. There is really nothing good to say about any aspect of this phone beyond its compact size. I bought this phone about a year ago after a lot of research. I pretty much looked at Nokia exclusively, because of great prior experiences with Nokia products. I did not want a smart phone for a number of reasons (battery life and large size being the two largest reasons).
Summary: Now I kick myself for not paying attention to one of previous reviews. This phone is not usable. I had several other Nokia phones. Most of them are reliable. That was the main reason I decided to get another one. However this 2630 surprised me. I can't hear anyone talking over phone. Volume is extremely low if speaker off. I had to turn speaker on and put the phone next to my ear to have any conversation. This is already after I turned volume to maximum.
Summary: I can't believe Nokia made such a useless product 2630 model (in comparison to Nokia 6126). This was supposed to be my secondary basic phone, but so disappointing - 1) The call volume is too low 2) Loud Speaker (handsfree) volume is also quite low. 3) Bluetooth range is less 4) Frequent disconnection from laptop connection (bluetooth sync) 5) During the call, when the device syncs, it is not an easy task to get back to call options 6) No easy option to turn off the...
Summary: Both Amazon's product description AND the Nokia website say that this phone has pop3, etc, email. Amazon's description mentions it several times. It does not. The manual does not mention it, and it is obviously not present on the phone. I returned it immediately, and did not spend much time with other features. The display is brighter than the older Nokia 2610, although scan lines are occasionally visible.

Excerpt: It is good to see and little care to be taken while handling because very slim. But its battery is not good enough.We have to charge daily even we not use it.And a littile software problem also there.Response is very slow.
Summary: When the item arrived, the screen was cracked and there was what appeared to be a photocopy of the first couple of pages of a manual, not even switch on instructions. However I contacted the seller immediately, they were courteous and apologetic and offered full refund which I now have. Product was rubbish but the seller was very helpful.
Summary: The plating around the "Navi" key seems very soft and quickly wears away giving the phone a very battered and tatty look. The "Navi" key button itself appears to have been plated to a far higher standard though. Within less than a year my 2630, which was always carefully looked after, looked a complete mess because of the loss of plating. I've now changed to a silver 2330 but haven't had it long enough to find out if Nokia got the plating right on that.
