It's durable, think and classically stylish.

This is the best phone you can get if you're looking for to satisfy basic necessities of a a phone that great. Quality for a low price.

This is the best phone you can get if you're looking for to satisfy basic necessities of a a phone that great. Quality for a low price. I couldn't ask for more, wouldn't trade it for a blackberry or an iphone. It's small, thin and very styish. I mean, of all the phones as time passes this kind "number key-screen" phone still looks stylish. With camera, video, radio, voice recorder, calculator, mp3 player, games, conference call, text message and all. Really simple and easy to use with, for those who don't want a huge smart phone. 2 years and 2 month. Still going strong. Dropped it a gazillion times, still going strong. VERY DURABLE! Because it's light Less

All I need

I got this phone from Wind after getting the finger from Rogers after 20 years. It replaced my land and mobile from Rogers and so far so good after 2 months. I use this phone for talking mostly although I do text now and then. Overall I like the small size and clarity is good. The best part though is saving over $100 a month by going to Wind!

phone's a disappointment

Got it from wind. It is annoying to talk on. Agree with others that keypad is too small. Sometimes reception is quite hard to hear even at max. volume. To call your contacts have to push 2 buttons - call, voice call.

Got it from Wind. Disappointed with the phone. It is extremely hard to hear it ring therefore I leave it on vibrate. You have to push two buttons for one function most times. Friends complaining they cannot hear me. The volume on the phone is not all that loud. Camera is not very good on it either.

Pic, music, and calling that's enough

Cheap, 50$ after rebait Unlimited callig to wind mobile I don't need wifi or MSN on phone, That's enought for me That's good one!

Good cheap little phone

I have had this phone for a few weeks now. It's not a super-duper Smartphone by any means, but I just wanted a cheap phone that holds a good signal to be used for a fair amount of calling and some SMS, but not a lot of SMS. It is quite small, which I like, except the keys are also very small, which is...More

I boght a Huawei U1250 when my nokia suddenly stopped working, primarily because it was cheap. I must say i was dissapointed. Allthough cheap, we are living in the 21st century and could expect a little bit more from our phones. The buttons are small,to small, and i keep hitting the wrong ones--and the text i' ve written is saved and closed, or the browser closed down. Using the phone as a moden to connect is a sad chapter.it works but veeery slowly. pages taking ages. One positive thing: I poured water in the sink and soaked my dishes, puting the phone on the shelf above the sink.I heard it ringing, while in an other room,i heard a splash,but did not think more of it. Half an hour later i fond my Huawei U1250 completly covered with water at the bottom of the sink. i opened it and dried it. it wasn't even wet inside! and it woked as before! noting was damaged after 30 min under water! not many phones would, especially not Nokia.
