this handset is a great one... been using it for 3 days already and so far no problem. considering the price, we really can't demand for a memory expansion slot. if you want, buy the nokia 3110classic just shell out more money for that, but you'll have to give up this phone's style (thin and great screen!).

the screen has a small problem if you're using dark themes... there's a glaring effect... you feel like you're reading texts immediately after waking up from a long sleep hahaha. brighter themes (no black background) are suggested to solve the problem.

battery is also good compared to nokia 2630. the operating system allows you to send sms quickly as this phone allows you to type the first few letters of the person and click "match" using the navikey (like the Symbian OS 60 of Nokia)... its a great help compared to lower model units that would require you to choose from favorite/recently used/call register etc.

all in all, i would give this phone an 8/10 rating. go for this if you want a basic call and text phone with style and basic features. =)

Gosh!!! I am of the same concern with Dani. In these times havig an mp3 phone with no extra memory slot is unpractical. the nokia 6320i was such a great product! thanks to the developer.

Dani, 20 Dec 2008REALLY!!!!!!!!!!! Bad phone it's pointless having an MP3 player ... moreIt's a Realley Good phone

  • Dani

I think it's a really good phone and people shuld buy i't. It's a good phone really. Don't say ooh the others says it's horeble means that it's horeble because it's not.Delicate your own opinion.

  • Dani

REALLY!!!!!!!!!!! Bad phone it's pointless having an MP3 player and so little memory. My pervious Nokia 6230i is far better than this piece of junk. I'm so dissapioned in this phone honestly I should have never taken it,R999 down the drain. This is not a phone I would recomend in buying.
