Excerpt: The Nokia Asha 300 is a good phone to have if you lose your phone and will only be using it for a short amount of time. I kept mine and used it whenever I lost or couldn't find my phone. Not having wi-fi connectivity is a huge flaw, but is partially made up by the internet sharing option.
Pros: almost impossible to break
Cons: no wifi, the default app for fb and twitter, 'communities' isnt very well thought out
Summary: Nice phone, didn't noticed that it came from over-seas, but its a nice buy. Works with Att, tmobile and H20 here in California. I'm not much of a touchscreen person but this is a good cell since I like to feel and know what I'm pushing, I think having touchscreen was just something extra for me. I like the screen shortcuts, easy to access easy to see, search and change around. Calling, texting, camera, radio alarm clock all are great on this phone.
Excerpt: If you receive a call, it just shows the contact name, not its number what it's really important in order to differentiate if the contact is calling from the work, home, cellphone, and so on. Keys are very hard to press, "send" and "end" keys are very thinner, this is annoying because you have to be very sure you are ending the call or calling. Resistive touchscreen sucks. I just use it to make calls and connect to internet via bluetooth. Internet is really fast.
Summary: have been using it for last roughly 12 months,its ok,but now the battery seems to run down very quickly.touch screen is a bit hit and miss and can be anoying at times.if you want to use the alarm be carefull as when i put in the alarm time,it comes up with how long before it will go off,it says alarm set for 40 hrs, but should be 8hrs !! ahead. now i've gone back to a new motorola old school gleam !!
Summary: Whilst now rather long in the tooth (and I suspect harder to buy) this little Nokia is doing an excellent job. The speaker is nice and loud, you really won't sleep through an alarm and having used smartphones and their onscreen keyboards for so long the little physical dial pad is a breath of fresh air. Two things.
Summary: I feel that a mobile should be one thing or another and going from touch screen to the pad can be annoying, I have always had Nokia over the years but could not recommend this one, although it does look good..
Great spec but touch screen takes a bit of practice

Summary: Excellent value for money and easy to use, plus great battery life (about a week between charges); went for this one as it's the cheapest Nokia on 3G (that you need for use with Sure Signal). Only downside is that the touch screen is not very responsive so anyone used to, say, an iPhone will find it very irritating - but you get used to it.
