Anonymous, 11 Jun 2010Does it support multi tasking ...Plz reply ....No, this phone is neither a smart phone nor supports multitasking. It is S40 not S60 or Maemo which supports multitasking.

Anyways what about call log? The website says, "Call records: Detailed, max 30 days"

I know S60 already do this. but as far as I know about S40 it can only store 20 Missed, 20 Dialled, 20 Received contacts in its call log.

himanshu frm india, 10 Jun 2010okk thxx plz don't mind if i ask u a thing... can u plz e... morey*utube is not the best, nokia down scale the y*utube to 1/4 of the screen, so if you want to see it full screen, it's run on 2x the size of the movies. but considering the price of only $94. this is the best device in it's class.

I haven't try see any mp4 on these phone yet, will report very soon.

no multi tasking. :(... i like the symbian better. but with this low price, i think i won't b*tch*ng about this. and I use this as a buffer for E5/C6. :)...

all in all, i'm very satisfied with this phone. although this phone is not fulfill my idea of perfect phone. but this is the best phone in it's price range, and i'm very excited about this phone. The feeling of excitement is the same as the first time I touch symbian (3650), and try the S60v3 (E61i).

and again....
this is not a smartphone.
when you buy this phone you should know it

This phone is great.

but ok when i split into several post

once you enter a wifi area that already pre-saved on the WLAN, it will use the WLAN.

quality build is nice, back side using a metal, i believe it's an aluminum because it's very light. and i like it because it's a bit rough metal, not the glossy one. so it's fell great in the hand.

screen great, sound great.

the h*t swap of memory card work great. if you take out the memory card, the photo apps put the photo in the phone memory. once you put the memory card back, it would store it on the memory card automatically.

once you change the sim card, the saved password of e-mail and instant messaging were gone. it's a good safety.

batery life.
it seems the battery life were good enough.
standby time could reach 3 days easily with nokia mess*ging turn on.... meaning that the phone connect to wifi/gprs/edge to stay alive at those mess*ging apps. please note, that my house happend to have a great signal, a full bar, if your signal is not full, your phone using more power, meaning that worse standby time.
whereas the up time / use time of the phone can withstand 8 hour non-stop usage of j*v* g*me + internet and still have 1/2 battery life. again... my house have a full signal.
so YMMV.
