The Nokia 3285 is a very functional and durable phone, featuring the basics with a little bit extra, like games, "profiles", and a calculator. I'll give you the pros and cons: Pros: It is extremely durable! It has quite a few extras, like games, "profiles"-a way to set up different configurations for the phone, and 40 different ring tones. Battery life is AWESOME!! I get 3 days of standby time in analog mode and a whopping 5 days in digital mode!! (With the optional lithium-polymer battery. Changeable faceplate's It seems like everywhere I go I get 100% signal reception! Very easy to learn to use-I received mine without a manual and learned everything on it within a day! Cons: No color screen, and no flip. Thats it! Overall, if your a cell phone newbie, yet want a phone with excellent battery life, excellent signal reception, thats very durable, and has lots of features, this is the phone for you! Less

Pro: can take a lot of abuse Con: lacks features of newer models, large, short batt life I recently re-activated this phone after trying two newer flip types. One was a motorolla, which had a strong signal but had a nasty habit of dropping calls, the other a samsung, which did not work inside buildings. My nokia has been dropped about a dozen times, most recently from a height of about 40 ft. After putting the battery and faceplate back on, it fired right up!!!! It may be an old design, but I can count on it even after abusing it. Has to be charged every night Less

This phone sucks

from Yahoo
Pro: Con: The phone will disconnect on phone calls, and turn off in the middle of your using it. Also there are no great features, you can't get ringtones or games for this crappy phone!
