With 20 polyphonic ringtones and downloadable MP3 tunes the Nokia 1600 combines great features with a sleek and modern design. A 65,536 colour screen makes best use of the icon driven menu & desktop and a speaking clock and alarm means you never miss...

Nokia 1600 Cell Phone Review

 

The all new Nokia 1600 phone makes life so much easier! Put yourself centre-stage with the 65,536 colour screen and spice it up with the MP3 and 20 polyphonic ringing tones. With the speaking alarm and clock, you'll never miss a party again. Break...

so user friendly that even your mother could use it

 

Just bought a Nokia 1600 on pay as you go and not only does it look good, it performs just as well as handsets about £100 dearer. It is so user friendly that even your mother could use it. Calling and messaging are so simple that I would give it fiv...

If you just want a simple little phone for texting and calling

cheap and adequate for the very basics of phonecalls and txt

 

A very basic phone with no music or camera, but for anyone wanting just a basic phone for calling and texting this is one of the cheapest and most adequate on the market. This phone is a useful phone to have as a back up, but as my kids say they are ...

Nokia 1600

 

Competitively priced and good enough quality for someone like me who does not want the latest and most fashionable all-singing, all-dancing gismo. I sinmply want to phone and text and occasionaly require it to be my alarm clock.

I wish the back light would stay on for longer when I am trying to maybe copy a telephone number from it for example. However that is a small point. Overall I am very pleased with this little bargain.

Nokia 1600

 

As a basic phone it does what it says on the box. Easy to use even for technophobes.

A camera would be nice but you pay for what you get.
