When I worked in Mexico, the language school employing me gave me, and all the other teachers, a phone so they could harangue us with calls day and night. This was the phone they gave us, probably because it was the cheapest, most basic model they could find. I gave mine back when I left, but my...

“At last, less is more!”

simple, robust, efficient

basic, no extravagent features

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...

It has a torch and is a phone

Ugly as sin, Grey, Has alzheiners

**THE LOOK** The Nokia 1208 is not the greatest looking phone on the market. Its not surprising as its has clearly been designed by soemone who lacks any immagination, who most likely lives alone. The phone has a truely blightful two-tone cover, although both tones are grey. It is as if it were...

After losing my old slightly more high tech phone i decided to buy a cheap and cheerful phone out of the supermarket to tide me over for a few weeks until i raised the funds to buy something better. That was nearly 6 months ago and i am still using this phone, simply because it works perfectly...

None of the latest features

If you're not looking for fancy-ass features like a camera, bluetooth, picture messaging, mass storage, the latest tones, maps, and an mp3 player, and you want your phone to make calls and send texts, this is for you. It is incredibly user friendly, (an excellent phone for the older generation)...

Nokia 1208 Review I recentley brought the Nokia 1208 mobile phone on pay as you go format. Now I managed to purchase this phone for just £5 with a £5 top up card for credit. Very resonable sounding phone, huh? And this phone has been sold at that price as well as other nearly as cheap prices...

What use is a phone that won't receive calls?

I am writing this review on behalf of my dad (he lives 300 miles away) who bought this mobile as an emergency when BT cut him off 5 days earlier than requested prior to moving house!! (But THAT'S another story!!!) He purchased the Nokia 1208 from Tesco Mobile on Pay as You Go, for £17.97. It was...

“Nokia 1208 Nokia 1208”

Very small and simple. If it falls it wont break.

Should have added a FM radio

What I feel? Something which everyone likes is simplicity, And thats exactly what this phone delivers. The phone is really easy to carry , and use. I had an expensive phone earlier which by mistake fell from my hand and the screen was all spoiled. Then i brought this phone, and has been really...

Value for money, durable, simplicity

Usual annoying Nokia ring tones

Ok, so the Nokia 1208 does not have a camera or radio or anything fancy for that matter. But the 1208 does come unlocked so you can swap and change sim cards like the wind. Yes, this cheap Nokia is ready built do you to do what you like with it. It has the usual Nokia theme to it, has all the...

This phone is perfect for someone who wants nothing fancy - it does only what a phone needs to do! It texts, calls and saves numbers. what more could you want? battery life is good, but the phone can look a little clumsy when compared to fancier models.

“A simple hand Set”

Very cheap

No GPRS.Camera, etc.

It's a 2G network system that is GSM 900/1800 .It's dimensions are 102x44.1x17.5mm and it's weight is only 77g. Display is 1...
