Summary: For anyone who doesn't need (or want) all the bells and whistles of the newest phones, this item is excellent. It is the Sherman tank of cell phones - short of dropping it in water, there's pretty much nothing you can do to this phone that will make it stop working. Unlike the new phones, the phone won't crack or break if it's dropped (and we've all dropped our phones many times over). I had to replace my original phone because I messed up the USB port.
Excerpt: We were looking for a straightforward, low bells and whistles cheap cell phone option when we chose the Nokia 6205 phone. Overall, I'm satisified. We have 3 young children that seem to constantly be finding the phone, it's been dropped on the ground, briefly submerged in water and over 18 months still works well. It looks like it's taken a beating but it has. I like the simple camera phone feature and it's simple to use with easy to read numbers.
Excerpt: The nokia 6205 is a sucky phone. I have to charge my phone up just about every night because it runs down, even when i don't hardly use it. The battery cover pops off when i barely touch it. The music player does work very good, whenever i play a song, it comes out sounding all tinny and not very good quality sounding music. The keypad is flat so when you try to text or dial a number it can be difficult to press the right button.
Excerpt: This phone is not that great. You can't see the numbers or letters in bright light even though the light is on. The battery doesn't last long.. You have to charge is so much. Sometime you hit a button and it goes to mobile web and if you are not subscribe to it you get charged $1.99 per megabite. The speakerphone is not that great either. The speaker is on one side while the microphone is on the other side.
Excerpt: my nokia is a pretty good phone. its has a lot of options on it. what i like the best is the fact that is has a camera.i use it everyday. it also can record video which is nice because i can put it on m computer and send it to others.the video quality is also pretty good. its pretty durable too i have a 2 year old who gets a hold of my phone all the time and it is still working. its a little dinged up but it works.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for another basic phone. It's features are good for what it is. Really good pics if you remember to check the camera settings first. The battery life may be average, and is not the best if you talk or text a lot. I do, and find myself charging twice a day. Comparing this phone to others in its class I rated high. It's sleek and easy to use. Overall it's a good basic phone.
