Hot pink banter!

Advantagessee review

Disadvantagessee review

"...one of which was the Nokia C3. I knew I wanted a QWERTY keyboard as I had found using a friends Blackberry keyboard much easier for texting than my phone. A bit of quick research soon helped me decide to go for the Nokia C3, as it had lots of good features, looked good and had positive reviews. It was also available in hot pink! I have now owned my new phone for a few months so feel able to review it! I placed the order for my new phone and received ..." Read review

Right For Me

Advantageseasy to use, good battery life

Disadvantageskeys small

"...often). I purchased the Nokia C3-00 in navy blue – it is also available in slate grey and hot pink – and it currently prices at around £70. THE LOOK The phone is slimline (13.6mm) and rectangular in shape, just larger than the palm of my hand in size (length = 115.5mm and width =58.1mm). The predominant features when you look at the front of the phone are the screen and the full QWERTY keyboard underneath ..." Read review

A great little option if you need to update but are on a budget

AdvantagesVersatile, modern but modest in price, difficult to break it

DisadvantagesThere are definitely more cutting edge models out there

"The Nokia C3 is your basic issue smartphone. For those of you that like your phone to be compatible with all of today’s technology without mortgaging your kids to buy an iphone then this might be an option worth looking at. I spent years with a brick in my pocket since all a phone is really meant to do is make calls and send text messages. I did not feel that splashing out was worth the money for what a smartphone offers. As such, I am aiming this ..." Read review

Its a blackberry! oh wait no its not.

AdvantagesLooks like the blackberry

DisadvantagesWould have been great on the android system.

"...the same as all previous Nokia models. The phone uses the standard Nokia operating system which is the same as a lot of the other Nokia phones which are not smartphones. there are some slight differences such as the Ovi store, and the community applications. The basic Nokia web browser is usable however if you want to use this phone for frequent web browsing i would suggest downloading an external application such as skyfire ..." Read review

Nokia C3 - A great little smartphone!

AdvantagesCheap, apps, pink

Disadvantagesonly has gprs

"...my Samsung! I came across the Nokia C3 on eBay, averaging around £60 used. However I ended up buying online fromm Phones 4 U, priced at £74.99 but this included a £10 airtime voucher as I bought it on pay as you go. When it arrived, my biggest gripe was that there was no airtime voucher - instead I got a sim card preloaded with the £10 credit. I asked Virgin if they could transfer it to my existing sim (as I did not want to change my number) but ..." Read review

Nokia C3: Handy for texting

AdvantagesQWERTY Keyboard

DisadvantagesSmall Buttons

"-When I bought this phone and what made me decide to buy it- I first read about this phone online shortly before Christmas 2010 as I owned a touch screen phone at the time that I was dissatisfied with so I decided that I wanted a phone with standard buttons. Once I decided that this would be my next phone I added it to my Christmas list and received it Christmas Day, I used it for just under two years until I replaced it with an Android phone. -Features- This ..."

Nokia C3

AdvantagesAmazing battery life, looks like a Blackberry

DisadvantagesNeeds more features

"I have had my Nokia C3 for around 6 months. People always mistake it for a blackberry so if you're someone who wants a cheap looking version of the Blackberry I would definitely recommend this. The keypad is in the same format as a blackberry and the talk time is amazing! Like all Nokia's the battery lasts for a long time and takes only 2hrs to charge fully! Being the clumsy person I am, I have dropped this phone more times than I remember and it ..." Read review

It had a nice good sized qwerty keyboard. Wtih Email, GPRS, WiFi. All that I need in a smart phone was here now in my hands! I have had it for over a year now.

Nokia at its best!

AdvantagesEasy to use, reliable, many features.

DisadvantagesOvi Services can be difficult to use, 2 megapixel camera is pretty much useless.

"...the age of 9. A Nokia 3310. The main things I remember about that phone is it's blocky, brick design, green screen and the ability to play 'Snake'. This Nokia shows us that their designs for phones have improved over the last 10 years. The technology we now have helps us to communicate with people in many different ways, but the mobile phone will always be the most important, in my eyes at least. The design seems somewhat similar ..." Read review

who needs a blackberry? Review with images

Advantagesgreat keyboard, cheap, easy to use

Disadvantagesaverage camera

"...losing a £140 touch screen Nokia phone whilst at university i started looking online for a reasonably priced phone that wouldn't be as painful to replace if I lost it! I bought the C3-00 for roughly £50 at a phones4u store, it was on O2 and the transfer of my old number wasn't an issue. The main reason for my love of this phone is the qwerty keyboard, the buttons are a decent size compared to a blackberry and make texting extremely easy. One downside ..." Read review
