Summary: And this fills the bill. I bought this for use on the Redpocket (AT&T) network, and it has been excellent. My wife did NOT want a "smartphone" and this one works perfectly for her. That and it fits easily into the little side-pocket in her purse which is perfect. Do NOT expect great photos, however.
Summary: The Nokia phone has been in my possession for a few years now and it is very resilient. If you are looking for a simple dial phone that receives text messages this is the one for you. I would strongly recommend this. It charges in one hour and holds the charge for days.
Summary: First - I am shocked at the $30 rise in price in just two weeks for this well-made phone from Nokia. The only thing I can figure is this phone is not manufactured by Nokia anymore, per their web site (it's in their 'archive'). That aside, it is a great phone with excellent vocal clarity.
Summary: This phone is exceptional for sound and camera functions, for people that don't need the data package. I saved $20.00 per month by eliminating the data portion and only getting the 1000 text message plan for $10.00 per month.
Summary: If you are looking for a reliable phone that makes great quality calls, has good battery life and is reasonably-priced then this is the phone for you. It's very easy to use, nice and small and is GSM so works in Europe too. The USB cable it NOT included, which is a bit of a downside.
Make sure that you only want a simple basic flip phone

Summary: This Nokia phone is an excellent basic cellphone. Stores contacts, big buttons for pressing numbers and uses the Symbian OS. Only problem I've had with this is the back cover. It is indeed, like other reviewers claim, difficult to open. It requires some force or some fingernails to pry off.
