Summary: liked the phone, but after a week or two the screen went crazy in the middle of a call and I could not see half the screen.....returned it and got another one... after a week I could barely hear sound out of the speaker.....worked fine if I had my bluetooth on...so I sent this one back.....third one would NOT recognize my SIM card - so I gave up!
Summary: I bought the phone 4 months ago and it worked great until now. It has all the functions I needed and then some. The phone itself looks good, however it feels a little cheap with the plastic housing. My wife has a similar Nokia phone, however her housing is made out of metal. I didn't think much of it until now. The phone slipped out of my hand and hit the ground from around 4 feet. Not sure if it was an unlucky fall, but the screen broke on the inside.
Summary: While this is a fine phone, there is a serious error in the product description. The phone does NOT have GPS as listed. Straight from the product manual: "Your device does not have an internal GPS antenna. To use applications that require a GPS connection, use a compatible external GPS receiver (accessory sold separately). Pair the GPS receiver with your device using Bluetooth wireless technology." This is, obviously, useless.
Summary: I'm mostly happy with this phone, as it does the quad-band, world-wide stuff very well. However, I thought the letters "GPS" in the product description meant full GPS abilities. Here's what the Nokia 2730 user's manual has to say about this: "Your device does not have an internal GPS antenna. To use applications that require a GPS connection, use a compatible external GPS receiver (accessory sold separately).
Summary: Pros: * The phone has a clean and simple design. The navigation menu isn't cluttered like most other phones these days. * The call quality is decent, and the screen is bright. * Bluetooth works as it should. CONS... Here we go... * The battery life is sub-par. An hour-long call is enough to bring the battery life down to half-charge. One of the methods the manual offers to conserve battery life is to lower the brightness of the display. The thing is, YOU CAN'T.
Summary: I have bought this as a SIM free second phone to use with local network when I travel outside Europe to avoid excessive charges on the phone I use in the UK. I must say I do not like the feel of it in the hand, as it feels as if it has been made of tin foil or something. It is OK as a knock about phone and I intend to give it to the local people before returning to the UK.
Excerpt: I was in the Optus store in bay St. Port Melbourne recently and they were selling this phone for $20. I've had one for 2 years (time to upgrade) but it does all the simple things well. Does have Internet access but is limited and slow.
Summary: I bought this as I've always tended to stick with Nokias. When I received the phone i was surprised considering the amount In had paid for it that it was quite chunky and not the slim discreet phone i was expecting. Also I find it awkward to text as the buttons are hard to depress. All in all not great value for money.
