I'd been looking for a new phone for many months. Wanted something not too big, robust enough to stand up to being carried around in a girl sized pocket or handbag. Wanted to be able to access internet and e-amil if needed, but important to be easy to use. Looked at i-phones and HTC but felt that the risk of me cracking the screen was big. Blackberry, especially the Pearl, went to top of my list, but then saw the Nokia C3-01 touch and type.
This phone is gorgeous - beautifully made, small enough to stay in my pocket without risk of damage. So, got it yesterday in a lovely gunmetal grey finish. Everything just works - no complications to set-up. Quick to set-up access to internet through wi-fi and 3g. Easy to set-up e-mail accounts and they work without any fuss at all.
The camera works well. The radio is the only let-down - so far, it's only managed to find one station. However, I can't see me using the radio much anyway.
All in all, I am delighted with this phone. It was free on my very modest contract with Orange, came with a £25 department store voucher and, as a loyal customer, I got a 10% line-rental discount. I'd have bought the phone without the freebies as I really loved the design and build quality. Having lived with it for 24 hours, made and received calls, sent and read texts, surfed the net and dealt with a few e-mails, used the camera ... I have no complaints at all.
