The Nokia C3 is no exception and is therefore equipped with QWERTY keypad for text messaging and Nokia in particular to facilitate mailing. Other devices in the C line include the Nokia Touch and C3-01 type, equipped with touchscreen, the Nokia C6, high-end smartphone, the Nokia C5 – mid-range candybar phone with touchscreen.

The Nokia C3 is true specialist in the social field. Through the home screen you see immediately in case you have any new messages, and you can jump to the site to read them.

  2. Hey frns,really the phones voice recorder doesnot work properly.anythng u record vl nt b heard wth clarity.its vry problamatic

  3. Well if it is for the young people this cellphone model will do… I believe what is important to teens is that they have something to communicate with their friends and family I think that is it.It is even easy to manipulate compared to other units.

  4. I using C3 on last 5 months …it is very good mobile ….. long battery life …. Camera quality is good ….. Wifi is very good

  5. i have a c3. don’t see the big deal. if any of you has more budget, don’t go for this one. yeah its cheap thats a plus point(good for collage students) and good battery life too. But its not the type of phone that you would want to keep with for long.

  6. to:- jane… no ! its not for young people. its boring actually. the wifi speed is not good and for some reason it disconnects every 2 minutes from networks and other bluetooth devices (not sure if this is in my one or a defect in this model). plus the(press three instead of one keys) on the qwerty keyboard are a usual nightmare especially if your fingers are not pencil type.
    further more the operating system is not comfortable to use. the phone has overall poor performance, you cant run any good games on it either. i am not an apple fan but still a used iphone 2g would be a much better choice than a c3.

  7. i just don’t get it why some are saying it’s a gd phone and some are saying it isn’t :/ i am thinking about buying this phone , should i buy it or not?

  8. iam useing nokia c3-00 1month but problem with 2weeks between .video sound not clear ,video recorder not sound play,avi format not supported .
    c3 mobile waste .bad quality
    be careful people
    nokia not connecting people

  9. This phone did in fact hanged on me 3 to 4 times after I bought it. Gave up usin it after that. Buuut I went back to use it a few more days later cos I still find it not as complicating to use as the E71. I updated my C3 using the ‘Nokia Software Updater’ I downloaded from the net. I don’t know if it really stopped the Hanging but I haven’t encountered a Hang since then. But when I browse through my pics, The sudden freeze sometimes really scares me cos I thought it hanged. This Phone does have it’s ‘Tons of cons’ as compared to the E71 but I seriously thing this is an acceptable piece of Device. Especialy since I’m a student. So with teachers confiscating it, I won’t feel Much of a pain compared to someone who has an E71 taken away. But no 3G means I get bored easily too. The Hotpink one is quite a looker but I got the blue one instead. Haha. But I put on a red casing so the very blue part at the back did not really bother me since it already covered it. Best not to drop this phone too cos I know the Material’s cheap. I got it as it was cheap and was quite a looker. Plus it is a Qwerty keypad phone which Sums up to… I Cheap good looking qwerty phone. But without the ‘Very Fast’ word.
