Durable starter phone!

I owned this phone a few years back but upgraded to a Nokia 6820 cause I needed a world phone. Now my wife uses my old 3595 and she loves it. Everybody keeps raving about the durability and I can vouche for that. She's dropped it how many umpteen times and it keeps ticking. The only problem it's ever had was the 3 key wouldn't respond all the time but I just took the phone apart two years ago and cleaned under the keypad and it's still working fine. I know so many people that have had to replace their more modern phones cause it fell out of their pocket once and destroyed the phone. Mine is still in use after 5 years of abuse. Yes, it is a basic phone but for people who want a cell phone for just that...a cell phone and not a camera or music player or movie player or whatever else they do now, this phone was perfect. I don't know where the complaints about bad signal strength are coming from. I would suggest blaming your carrier, not your phone. I've been using Rogers in BC for years and have always had excellent coverage. Better than people on other networks for sure. This phone was always connected, no matter where I was. And compared to my 6820, accessing menus and looking up contacts is actually faster on the 3595. It's way faster to load the screens. And text messaging was way easier too because the buttons are a bit bigger. I could reliably type out a whole message without looking at the phone. With the smaller 6820, it's way too easy to hit a wrong button if you're not looking. So ya, it's too bad phones are getting packed with more useless features but are being made so cheaply now. This phone was, and still is, a good solid performer! Less

I had this phone before getting the phone I currently have, and have missed it ever since. I would have switched back, if possible, but I had to change to a GSM, and this phone was a TDMA, which made that impossible, as my cell phone provider would not let me, and said these were no longer being made, so there was no way I could get another one. This phone may be a little on the large side compared to a lot of the newer, sleek designs on the market now, but it fits in your hand good and makes for easy one-handed manipulation of the keypad. It's also lightweight. The reception is excellent. The wallpapers made the writing on the screen hard to see, so I opted to not use a background on the screen. This phone got completely immersed in water, and convinced it was ruined, I went the the shop that very day and got a new, different phone, which I regretted, because the next day, after it had time to dry out, it turned on and there was no indication that it didn't work as usual. Battery power was awesome. I talk a lot, and could go a week without charging. Now that I don't use it anymore, it lays in my desk drawer, and occasionally I turn it on to get a number I need that I didn't transfer to my new phone, and I'm not kidding...It will still have almost a fully charged battery after months of laying there with the power off. It didn't have a lot of good ringtones. Most of them were silly sounding, but since I kept mine on silent most of the time, that wasn't a big concern. I've always been a Nokia fan, and I believe this is one of their better phones. No bells and whistles, just a good, dependable phone. Less

The Nokia 3595 is a very durable basic phone. You can abuse it and it still will work. There are a few things I didn't like about it. It has an internal antenna. The internal antenna cannot compare with a rod or external antenna. Reception inside buildings are a challenge. The minute I go outside it is fine. I never had this problem with the rod antennas. There was always somewhere in the house where I could get reception. With this internal antenna reception within my house is virtually nonexistant. There is also the drawback that there is no jack to attach an external antenna to improve reception. Finally, I hate the keypad. The numbers are in an up and down pattern instead of horizontal and have no space in between them. The phone constantly enters different individual numbers than what I entered. However, overall it is a decent, durable phone for basic use. Less

don't buy it

from Amazon
I hate this phone with a passion. It dies on me at least once a day. The loudest volume for listening while on the phone is barely loud enough (no speaker phone). "Insert SIM Card" always randomly pops up, even though my SIM card is perfectly in place.

I got the Nokia 3595 back in 2004 (I don't use it anymore, because I update my phone every year, but its still there.). It's a candy bar model with an internal antenna. It's not too big nor too small and it's pretty light. I must say that I am very impressed with the strong signal this phone gets, and the battery life, I could leave it for days without charging, and I would still see it with every single bar. The phone is also very sturdy, and strongly built, because no matter how many times I dropped it, it got no scratches nor did the system mess up. The Phone has very good sound, and a decent color screen, not the best but it's good. This phone doesn't have any special features, but you could download, ringtones (Only Midi files, not Mp3), Wallpapers, and games. Other than that this phone just has the basics, so if you're one of those people that must have the camera, and the bluetooth, or speakerphone, and so on this phone isn't for you, but then again we are in 2007, so the phone is pretty outdated. Pros: Strongly Built, Excellent Battery Life, Good Sound Cons: Weird Keypad, No Big Special Features. Overall: Good Basic Phone. Less

Awkward design, but EXTREMELY durable

I've had my Nokia 3595 phone for about four years now.

I've had my Nokia 3595 phone for about four years now. During that time, I've dropped it while walking about a thousand times, have had it run over by a car once, dropped it in water and paint a few times, etc., and the phone is good as new. It's a great starter phone...I'm kind of technologically awkward, so I'm still using it. Very easy to use and virtually indestructible. It is a good size - not too big and not absurdly small, easy to use. It's not a flip phone, but it does have a keyguard. And the headset works well with it. My brother, who has another kind of flip phone, has gone through 8 headsets already and they all seem to die on him. The phone looks pretty old-fashioned (that's why I said "awkward design") but it more than compensates for that by being of high-quality material and for its durability. Less

This phone is very robust. If it is simple, it still does the job. The sound is loud, the screen bright and the buttons are easy to use. The rocker feature is a bit annoying; you have to rock the buttons to hit some of the numbers shared by the buttons, but this isn't too bad. The prepaid feature lets me buy minutes as I need them. I am not a cell phone yapper, so a monthly plan is a waste for me. Once you buy about 120 minutes or so, your minutes don't expire as quickly (T Mobile Gold status) and you can store minutes without worrying about them expiring before you have a chance to use them. I got to this point, and now I spend very little on my monthly cell phone bill. This system is perfect for people who don't use cell phones extensively, and I still can IM my friends, send SMS messages, use Yahoo Messenger, get stock quotes and news items. I paid about $30 after a rebate for this phone and I am completely happy with it. Less

Pro: Everything! Great quality, great standby/talk time, and great style! Con: None, so far. This phone is great! I have been using it for awhile now, and have been nothing but pleased! A friend of mine had T-Mobile for awhile; and when he switched to Cingular he put his old 3595 in a drawer.. When my phone went out, (I have Cingular btw), he told he me had the Nokia and that he would let me have it. So, I got it from him, and I was able to get the phone working on Cingular.. (It look a little modifying, but I got it working).. And, I have been using it since then! :) The reason I wanted to bring up the fact that my phone was ported from one provider to the next was that alot of phones just do not port well. Alot of phones just simply do not adjust to this sort of activity. But, I can assure you that this phone is sturdy enough for just such a thing! One other thing I wanted to mention was that the keypad layout is NOT bulky or otherwise uncomfortable. The phone I had before this Nokia was a Siemens A56 (great phone! But, the battery needs replacing now, and I haven't been able to locate one thus far.. but, it still works!), and if you know anything about those, they are truly pint-sized cellphones! But, I had no problem adjusting to this change, personally.. So, I think the pro review was a little harsh.. ANYWAY! Great phone! I would certainly reccomend it to anyone! Less
