Excellent basic phone with internet/mail access

Summary: Has FM radio, calendar, music player, and the like. Nothing fancy, but works well for me.
Pros: This looks like your typical basic Nokia candy bar style phone. What sets this phone apart is that is gives you the advantages of a basic phone (good call quality, long battery life, low cost, and keypad) with the ability to have basic internet access (not WiFi) anywhere you have cell coverage, and at little cost. The interface for the e-mail isn't slick, but it works quickly for my Yahoo account. The interface for the internet browsing is a bit klunky, but it is adeq...
Cons: If you are looking for a smartphone with a slick interface, touch screen, etc., this is *not* for you. It's a basic phone that has the added bonus of being able to retrieve e-mail and get the information you might want/need from the internet.
Summary: Nice wee phone for the price, fits comfortably in your hand, not too big, can see easily enough when out in daylight. Easy push buttons, wish I had purchased for myself before getting contract phone
Summary: Happy with this phone. I like a mobile phone to be a phone first and foremost. For calls and texts. This mobile fits the bill. It has a nice clear screen and keypad which I find far more reliable than a touch screen.
Summary: I am fed up with stupidly oversized smartphones with terrible battery life. I like Nokia. I also like basic phones with a decent screen, buttons, features, settings, enough volume to hear outside, excellent battery life and preferably in a good looking & well built package. The Nokia 301 ticks all those boxes. Best phone I have ever owned.
Summary: Bought this for my mum who was still using a text only one-colour-display phone. She wanted a camera phone but touchscreen smart phones were a step too far as she doesn't really do more than text and call. I haven't used the phone much personally but the comments below are from helping her set it up and what she has told me... Good points: It's really easy to navigate.
