I got this phone September 05, and I still use it as my primary phone and it still works fine. After almost 4 years my only complaints are that the camera quality isn't that great, it takes awhile to receive text messages sometimes, and you have to set the alarm in the calendar section in order for it to work.Never once has it frozen, and I have dropped this thing so many times and it still works fine. But considering I payed $100.00/pay&talk for this baby, I totally recommend this. Less

nokia 3205i a trendsetter...

i love the 3205i phone love the fact that i can change the faceplate/cover so easily. I love the fact that the numbers are doubled on each button.

Good design - unreliable function

I like the rocker keys, the durable body and the tiny candy bar size... but, I frequently have problems with the screen going blank and the alerts not functioning. I always have the alerts set to vibrate and yet I am lucky if it vibrates once a week, I am an avid texter so I have to constantly check my...More
I like the rocker keys, the durable body and the tiny candy bar size... but, I frequently have problems with the screen going blank and the alerts not functioning. I always have the alerts set to vibrate and yet I am lucky if it vibrates once a week, I am an avid texter so I have to constantly check my screen to check for incoming texts - as the phone doesn't alert me most of the time.

I had this phone for a full 2 years. It is true that this phone can take quite a bit of damage. You can also change the design of the faceplate. I can rarely think of any designs though. Cons: short battery life dialpad takes time to get used to can only receive IR pictures cannot send IR pictures the camera sucks, so i guess no point in sending pix out =p camera sucks, video also suck the plug for the handsfree thing break to easily the games suck only way to send pictures to PC is through email, which is costly. The case gets scratched easily, but i guess it's the same for all phones Less

Great... for a kid

Its a great cell phone that is very durable with a very hard plastic case. It is really good for some kid's first cell phone but for some one that needs a little bit more than just a regular cell phone than this isn't it. This was my first cell phone and I enjoyed, being a kid I did drop it( in water sometimes ) and it kept on working.

i have had this phone for the longest time ever.pretty much since this phone has came out! it has been through alot,like getting dropped into a lake,playing soccer with it,falling onto the ground PLENTY of times! its like steel, but it DEFFINATLY could be improved because the camera first off,is TERRIBLE, you cant see anything unless you are in the BRIGHT sunlight or something.its very bad! &i text ALOT,so when i am texting it seems to go down a battery level everytime i send a text message.so that deffinatly sucks! but it is a nice and light phone to carry and everything/but i REALLY want a new phone.im really sick of this phone because of all the problems i now have with it!

Can go through anything

I have had my Nokia 3205i since 2004, and it has gone through so much, like dropping into puddles, stepped on, chewed on by my dog, and other things. But this thing never stops.

I have had my Nokia 3205i since 2004, and it has gone through so much, like dropping into puddles, stepped on, chewed on by my dog, and other things. But this thing never stops. It keeps going and going. But, the only I don't like is that two numbers are on one button, the short battery life, and the camera. The camera is one of the worst I have seen. Other than that, I am replacing this phone of mine, but it has been great. I would recommend this phone for someone who is new to the cell phone enviroment (whoever that is), or if as a gift for a child. Less

Worst phone i''ve ever had...

....So bad that O considered going to my old Sanyo SCP-4500. The camera is uselss....The video camera records quality sound, but the image itself is almost nonexistent. The battery doesn''t last for more than a day of moderate usage. Mine usually died on Friday night before I came home from the club...More

The battery doesn''t last for more than a day of moderate usage. Mine usually died on Friday night before I came home from the clubs. The phone itself get''s really hot with prolonged usage, and the screen turns purple. I wouldn''t recommend this in any way, shape, or form. Less

I have had this phone for about 2months now and i personally think that it is one of the best phones ever.....people can say what they want about it but i have it two thumbs up. The radio is a great feature though you have to buy the headset. The picture quality is good when you are up close but it sometimes blurry but you have to know how to work it before automatically judging it''s features. i showed this phone to my friends and now like all of them wanat and stuff.....soo yeah Less
