Summary: "purchased this 31st july & the screen keeps going white/blank.ee say its a manufacturing glitch in a new design so tough luck,you pay your money you take your chance.really tough if I need to make a call & I,m having to repeatedly turn my phone on & off till It decides to give me a screen back.so beware folks & thanks for nuthin,ee.
Summary: I purchased this mobile for my father. He specifically wanted Nokia keypad phone. He earlier used Nokia 2700 for 3 years. This Nokia 301 is not worth it. Saved numbers are not displayed on caller id if you have not saved as+91. Too slow. Software is buggy and irritating. Battery lasts one day only medium level use. Totally waste of money. Nokia 2700 was far better.
Summary: I can't stress enough, DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. It's 2014. It's absolutely amazing how this level of technology is still on the market. I'm pretty sure my Nokia from 2002 had the same capabilities and capacity. You simply cannot use the web. It's slow. Cumbersome. Utterly inaccessible. It doesn't have WiFi! Really, if there were laws about this sort of thing, Nokia would not be ALLOWED sell this piece of junk.
Summary: All but one of my mobiles have been Nokia because I really valued the long battery life. When I got this phone at first the battery lasted about 4 days. Suddenly after 3 months it went down to 24 hours. The thing is that I rarely use it. It is not connected to the internet. On average it handles about 3 calls and 6 text messages per week, and that's it. It's actually a rubbish item - more trouble than it's worth. My previous Nokia also let me down.
Summary: i BOUGHT THIS PRODUCT A MONTH BACK, BUT I AM VERY MUCH DISAPPOINTED TO FEEL THE PRODUCT PERFORMANCE AS ITS BATTERY BACK UP IS VERY POOR, IN 3G MODE BATTERY WILL DISCHARGE WITHIN FEW HOURS AND 2G MODE WILL LAST ONLY A SINGLE DAY. NOKIA 301 IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH NOKIA SUITE SO YOU CAN NOT SYNC WITH YOUR PC. INBUILT THEMES AND WALL PAPERS IN BACKGROUND REDUCES THE READABILITY OF CHARACTERS SO IT IS STRAINEOUS TO READ A MESSAGE OR MAIL..
A well made, simple, neat little phone let down by atrocious email & web issues.

Summary: This phone was bought for emergency back up. This Nokia's email & web capability were what I primarily needed and so I thought that this phone would fit the bill. Unfortunately, web connectivity proved patchy at best, even in strong signal areas. It was the Nokia's email failings that were the deal breaker. Images could not be displayed and downloaded emails could not be viewed without web access.
