Don't know about that other reviewer perhaps, he's having a bad day, lol... Just I cannot for the love of god find any fault with this NOKIA 1616 (SIM FREE) PHONE. (Its Superb) even the Hands FREE has a Wonderful stereo effect....
I was working underneath my car the other day while on "Hands FREE", the phone just sat beside me on the ground. (with perfect reception both ways). 5/5.
Whatever, 'Sim Card' you put in (a part from the 3 network) it will work perfectly...
More important, is the "fabulous (1) week average battery Life..." which is a breeze, saves one having to recharge every other day, (this is much more common with smart-phones with bigger CPU's and much bigger LCD screens, which really drain the battery).
I just was so, impressed with the price I bought another one this morning for an Xmas present to my Girl.
I think Nokia got all the important spec's correct, at the right price point, like I own an 'HTC Desire', so I'm not too fussed if I loose this one, its really just a spare. 'Great reception BTW'.
It's got rubber type gripping at the edges, the Phones fits like a GLOVE in ones hand, it will NOT slip nor slide, its just a Fab Phone at a Fab Price, if you don't need internet, BUY this NOKIA 1616.
+Plus its SIM FREE Which means it never needs unlocked, so you can use, o2, Vodafone, Virgin, T-mobile, Orange, Tesco, etc. and others.!
