Liked it, but the phone was just too small for me.

Summary: I tried using this phone for about a month, and I found that the size was the major issue for me. It was just too small! I like the clarity of the screen, but that's about it. The operating system wasn't the best in the world, as everything that I was used to in my Blackberry was backward or it couldn't be found at all. Nokia is their own animal when it comes to this particular operating system.
Summary: I use the phone with ATT service in TEXAS and have used it in other countries were an 850/GSM network is available. I have been using nokia cellphones for the past 7 years without any major complaint. These are my pointers on the 700: The GOOD: 1)Its touch-screen 2)OS Symbian Belle 3)Call quality 4)OVI Map Navigation Turn by Turn A-GPS (Road and Walk!
Great design, performance, but screen is too small with bad resolution!

Summary: This cell phone is great, and the new symbian (Belle) is fantastic. But the small screen sometimes is a big problem: texting and using internet in the small screen should be a challenge. The resolution is also too bad comparing with the new phones. (Update: I don't have this phone anymore, but it looks like skype is now available). A fast and robust smartphone, but with a too small screen with bad resolution.
Summary: I have used Symbian devices in the past and wanted to try out the new Symbian Belle OS. This phone itself is great, very sleek. Loved it. And Symbian Belle is a great great improvement over previous versions of Symbian. But the hardware on this phone is a little lacking. It would freeze when tryng to open Social (which is Nokia's app for Facebook, etc). Other than the freezing issue connecting to Social, everything else works great.
Summary: this phone i was dishapointed with yes loud big text but the main reason i wanted it was for blue tooth in my car and the blue tooth does not work at all so is only good to me as a spare by time i realised this it was to late to send back
Excerpt: The Nokia 700 leaves me with a feeling of dread. How can Nokia continue to create such beautiful looking phones, but with such an awful OS? Symbian Belle is an abortion of an interface. Some will love the primary school-like look of the icons, others will want to dip their eyes into a bucket of weasels. Some will enjoy the clean and frankly snappy interface of the homescreen, others will detest it for its lack of innovation.
Pros: The sexy-as-hell design The bright and chirpy screen The breezy interface
Cons: Symbian Belle, the OS from hell The feedback every damn time you touch the phone. Seriously, you scroll, it vibrates, you stare at it, it vibrates. No.
Excerpt: Телефон используется больше двух лет, не раз падал и на асфальт и кафель, да сколов очень много на корпусе, иногда подвисает, перестает работать скрин тач и не видит контакты телефонных номеров, но потом чудесным образом все само собой восстанавливается. Этот телефон для маленьких пальчиков, т.к. Набирая смс попадаешь сразу на две буквы, в вертикальном положении вообще с большим трудом и то два слова. Камера понравилась, а что еще от нее нужно.
Pros: Маленький, тонкий, легкий, вспышка и как фонарь отличный
Cons: Маленький экран, экран поворачивается в одну сторону, если использовать интернет через оперу мини, и долго не обновлять страницу, то тогда приходить выходить и снова заходить в прогу. Трудности при наборе смс. Нет передней камеры, там нарисованная точка.
