Essential Internet

If you're not a heavy data user, the Essential Internet tariffs from Three are for you. With a fixed data allowance, Three guarantee you can’t accidentally spend more than you planned. When you reach your data limit, Three will send you a text alert. If you want more data, you can add 250MB data for £2 or all-you-can-eat data for £5 - both last for 30 days. Or just wait till your allowance refreshes next month – Three will block data usage until then so you can’t accidentally run up any extra data charges.

Our Nokia C2-01 Review

Are you looking for a good, multi-functioning mobile phone for a great price? If you want to spend a small amount of cash and still get a nice bundle of features take a good look at the Nokia C2-01.

Phone Design

This is one durable phone. Several reviewers are asking for a slimmer phone. However, the heft of the mobile phone makes it more durable with a truly solid build. The phone weighs 89 grams and measures 109.8x46.9x15.3.

The Nokia C2-01 is a simply designed mobile phone. You get a screen, two soft keys on each side of the D-pad plus the phone keypad below. The D-pad operates as a five way toggle – a step up from basic Nokia phones. The size of the soft keys is appropriate and users are leaving great feedback.

Calling the primo function of the Nokia C2-01. The keypad offers comfort for easy keyboarding. All extras, such as the micro SD card, are easily marked and identifiable. The device is easy to understand, even for first time users. This easy user interface means you do not have to endure a learning cycle as you adapt to the phone. The home screen is designed in the most logical layout for the majority of users. If this layout does not work for you it can be easily changed by the swipe of your finger. The phone book is basic and as the UI, it is easy to use. You can store up to 2,000 contacts from SIM or memory or both. The phone does not offer voice dialing or smart dialing.

Yes, we said this is a phone for talking. But, is is a good choice for messaging. It gives users a straightforward message program with no bells and whistles. The messaging program is sleek and fast. It supports SMS, MMS, flash, audio messages, and email.

What We Liked

A mobile phone for talking? We are fascinated by this ‘back to the future’ idea. Nokia really found a niche in the mobile phone market and jumped on it. The Nokia C2-01 is affordable and not overly burdened with too many features.

When reviewing phones it is important to keep in mind what the phone is for. This phone is not a top of the line smart phone. It is a good mid-level mobile phone for anyone looking for someone to talk with or use voice features. When you kep this in mind you will still notice what features are most important to you.

What We Disliked

This model is not our first choice if you will be doing a lot of video recording. It has no smart dialing which is a serious problem – probably the biggest disappointment. Users report low scores for audio replay and display.

The Final Verdict

It is hard not to like a phone made for the budget conscious with high end features plus an easy UI. Choose this phone for a first phone, a new phone for a kid, or an excellent choice for elderly parents. You will get a generous two and one-half weeks stand by time and plenty of talk time, but keep in mind – this is the phone for keeping in touch, not for playing Angry Birds!
