Decent phone while it worked

G. Altvater, Amazon
19 July 2011
  • 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.

Warning: Product description incorrect - No GPS

JK "JK", Amazon
8 July 2011
  • 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.

GPS doesn't really mean GPS

D. N. Brown, Amazon
21 June 2011
  • 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).

Frustrating

Peditab, Amazon
22 November 2010
  • 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.

  • 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.

Nokia 2730

jacksoj, Amazon
26 July 2011
  • 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.

Limited use

sh of bottesford, Amazon
4 April 2011
  • Summary: Simple to use for those who want to make phone calls without needing a walking computer. However the product information does not explain that the device is limited to the Vodafone network. Even with a Virgin SIM-card it could not be connected to the network. This information from Nokia is misleading and should be made clearer by Amazon. It had to be returned and replaced by a slightly more expensive item.

  • Summary: Pros: It's cheap, has a few good games, and looks ok. Cons: The battery life sucks. The screen is too small to surf the web.
