Nokia 1606

I love this phone!!! If you go into security settings you can call block annoying callers just by adding their numbers....The only bad thing is the speaker is messed up. But thats ok because i dont use the spaeker phone anyways but i do love the caller block!!!! Thanks Nokia!!!

I have had this phone since it came out. I love it because it can get MMS. Its small and simple: only problem I have with the phone is the speaker could better. this Nokia is one of the best cricket phones so far. Oh yeah did i mention it has a flashlight!!!!!AWESOME

pros

good battery, loud ringers, sleek design, and good internal memory

cons

speaker sucks
no camera

not so good

 

Jun 25, 2009 by havensjulie

not happy with this phone. it's light and affordable, and has all the features I need- but the membrane-type keypad is terrible- I've had the phone for 2 weeks, and already most of the keys won't work. voice clarity is bad too. feels too fragile, and apparently is. don't buy.

Slick little flip

 

Feb 27, 2009 by cellyoresole

I recently purchased this phone for use with metroPCS (detroit market).

good:
-Nice design, sort of tricorder-like in a way. Very slim and light.
-Decent external screen. Basic, but has everything you need (mostly).
-TFT internal screen. A little low at 120x160 but not too crammed. Good refresh rate and bright, no slow unevenly lit STN.
-Pretty much standard S40 v4-5 UI, so thats nice (aside from a few exclusions). Active Standby.
-Loud speakers, with a few exceptions.
-Good RF
-Decent, well spaced keypad.
-Built-in LED flashlight is always a plus.
-MicroUSB connector, so it is fairly standard.
-8mb internal memory, not that you even need that much.
-Can set voice recordings as ringtones.
-Compatible with the new AWS 1700 band so it will work in upcoming markets.

Bad:
-External screen doesn't show signal level.
-Lame openwave browser, brew.
-No java so no opera mini, gmail etc.
-While loud, the speakers arn't the best quality.
-Membrane type keypad, so not as accurate as possible.
-Case is a bit creaky, but not too unsettling.
-No bluetooth or really any other connectivity options, other than 2.5mm headset.

Overall very pleased for 80 bones. Haven't been able to really get a feel for battery life yet, but seems fine to me so far.
