Summary: I bought this for my aunt who lives in the Seychelles and wanted a not-touch phone. As such, it may serve her purposes. I can also use it on the way over when I stop in London for a week. I would never buy this phone for myself in a million years. The advantages it has over a non-wifi phone are crippled by the slow, slow page loads and overall crummy design. Whenever a wifi is available this is the last device I would grab.
Pros: Use anywhere it anywhere, its unlocked! Looks good.
Cons: Slow, horrible interface, and screen is very low quality. battery cover is cheap and feels like it will break easily
Could have been a good feature phone, but it has a fatal flaw.

Summary: Preface: This is not what would be considered a smartphone in the United States (Nothing on the par of Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone), it is basically a feature phone. Also, although it says here that it has a US warranty all of the warranty material it came with referenced Latin American countries so I am not sure if it is really covered under a US Warranty. I returned it during Amazon's return window so it wasn't an issue. Now for the phone review.

Summary: Not liking touchscreen keyboards I wanted a QWERTY keyboard and to upgrade from my previous basic phone. I do not use social media or apps, just need the device to operate as a phone and MP3 player for podcasts plus I had hoped to be able to access my emails when on the move. After 6 weeks of struggling with it, we have only just managed to get the device working as a phone and MP3 but can only access emails when at home (rather defeats the object!)on a wifi connection.
Excerpt: Really to say I was at the begining with this mobile. I work better than other model like c3. But now i find problem many problem using it. firstly it show my security code error however i type a correct one. Secondly and most important one none of the application I download via computer doesn't work since such application was made for this mobile. And none of the application which was in this mobile also doesn't work.
Summary: The wi-fi has a big problem in this phone. It gets disconnected automatically after sometime even if it is kept at the same place in a room. When you move around in the house, it gets disconnected easily, unlike the Blackberry I was using earlier. The overall look of the phone is okay though it could have a bigger screen and keypad, which is very compact and often, difficult to type on. Ease of operation with the apps (for e.g.
Summary: The phone is good but the pricing is high. Its good for 3500 Rs. Doesnt have android and GPS. No touch screen either. Better buy something else. Pros is , its NOkia . so there is reliability. I think its not worth 6500 RS, buy samsung galaxxy.
Summary: there some major problems with software compared with old s40, 1)you can not delete selected sms in inbox or sent mail box. 2)you can not open new page while using WAP ( long press 0)when click on start page it close the page. 3Battery hardly last two days( in spite of 1430 mamp rating) 4)can not update contacts automatically. 5)software look is like china mobile.
