This is another user-friendly and robust offering from Nokia that is likely to be ranged as both a contract and PAYT handset on most mobile networks.
It is a dependable device with little complexity that can often cause software glitches on fancier devices when they are launched by the manufacturers. The seamless keypad also protects the device from dust.
It is a quad-band device which means it can be used world wide (exluding Japan) meaning great value for money as you will need no other devices.
It is a wondefully simple device with no frivalities and for those of you that want a phone to be a phone - i.e. make phone calls rather than your Sunday Roast this is the ideal device for you.
No camera No internet No Bluetooth No picture messaging No radio No memory card
This phone makes calls, receives calls, sends and receives text messages and that is it! Ahhh what a relief to those who don't want a manula the size of war and peace and just want something simple and reliable.
It weighs 76g and is therefore both lightweight and durable. At only 102mm x 44.1mm x 17.5mm this candybar design is small enough for a trouser pocket or zip compartment of a ladies bag.
With integrated loudspeaker ideal for the outdoors, combined with a bright and handy flashlight feature this is ideal as an emergency phone as well... whether its to call a breakdown company or see the keyhole in the door this phone comes in useful in many situations. With talktime of up to 7hours and standby time of up to 365 the device just seems to keep going!
It has a clear and intense colour screen along with MP3 grade ringtones means that although it is basic it is no longer stoneage and doesn't have to be embarassing to have a simple phone.
This is also ideal as a first phone for children/teenagers as it does what is needed to keep in contact with family without being desirable, meaning it is less likely to be stolen or sought after by others.
The phone also offers a unique call tracking feature which allows you to pre-set cost or call time of individual calls, cutting the call when this limit is reached. The device also has 5 phonebooks available which means it's ideal for sharing or splitting your contacts into more manageable groups.
With stereo headset and X-press on covers available there is the opportunity to make the phone your own. Available in both black and red.
