I decided to buy a new phone b/c I needed a newer phone than the one I had, but did not want a "new" phone I wanted an old school Nokia, so I looked around on eBay to see what I could find. This one had some features my current phone did not. After the purchase of the "new" phone I like some of it's functions, but dislike others. I'm really looking for a new phone with old school functions, ie. the one button does it all, not this new toggle button with 5 functions plus the 2 buttons for call and end, 2 more for clear and enter. I LOVE the functionality of the Nokia 3395, but it didn't have a camera or enough phone number storage.
So all in all I'm mostly satisfied with my new phone, but I don't think I will keep it too long. I'm still on the search for the "one button that does it all" in a Nokia.
I do really like the lights and ring on my new phone, but it's not as easy to use as my old one. However, it did come in good condition and since it was already on Cingular network I had no problem just putting in my old SIM card and presto, the phone worked like a champ with all my existing infomration, so that was a huge plus.
The Nokia 3220 is REALLY GREAT. I love the tones and the way it lights up. I had an older Nokia cellphone that just did'nt live up to it's name. You could'nt talk very long. The battery would run down in no time, but the 3220 lasts for several days before I have to charge it. When it rings, it really puts on a light show that gets your attention. My friends think it's the wildest cellphone they've ever seen. The camera takes really nice pictures and excellent movies with sound. I checked out alot of different cell phones, but this is the best one I've found for my needs.
This cell phone is small, compact and and excellent telephone. The signal strength is completely acceptable in outlying areas that are some distance from the transmitting/receiving towers operated by Cingular/ATT. Clarity of the voice receiving is better than most other phones. This was purchased as a replacement for a Motorola Flip Phone that was a piece of junk and only worked IF you could see the tower and then that was only about 50% of the time. The extra feature of the phone, such as the camera are excellent, especially if you order the software that connects the phone to your computer and you have a photo program such as MGI or Adobe to work with the photos that you download. I would highly recommend this phone to anyone that wants a top of the line small phone at a reasonable price. To me this is a better phone and the Nokia 6100 series phone. Pay a little more and get the best.
The original idea was to get a multi-band, unlocked cell 'phone in a "candy bar" shape for use on vacation in Canada. The Nokia 3220 is a tough little device that, with the side grips, fits easily in my small hands. The sound quality is fairly good and I don't have to shout to be heard, which is a relief to the people around me. While I wasn't looking for a camera/video recorder, I am now hooked on those features and can't imagine not having them in future cell 'phones. The picture quality is decent and the video recording, while not "Oscar" material, gets the idea across.
The negatives: the command buttons have to be hit EXACTLY in the middle or the wrong command is given; the number buttons are not individual. I find the operation prompts difficult to follow and haven't used about 85% of the 'phone's features because of that. The operating manual I find confusing. I don't really need a 'phone with as many "bells and whistles" and flashing lights that this one has and I've had different brand cell 'phones in the past that were easier to use.
This would be a good first cell 'phone for a pre-teenager who has a gift for 21st century gizmos. This is an "interim" 'phone for me until I can afford a little more of an "adult", multi-band 'phone.
I chose the NOKIA brand of telephone because the ones I've had in the past have been durable and reliable.
I bought this Nokia 3220 because I already had one and really like the phone. This one was for my son who needed a new phone. The camera features of the phone are nice and I have used the camera to provide myself with a screen background photo of my dog. The other feature such as the blinking lights when it rings, etc., are helpful when it is dark and the phone rings. It isn't a problem finding this phone. Audio clarity is good and the phone operates well. I think my family of 4 has had about 10 cell phones and all have been Nokia. As a result, all of our chargers are the same. So, I've go a charger in my office, at my cabin, in my RV, in my dining room, in my home office, a car charger, and one in my suitcase for traveling. It is really convenient to have the same type of charger everywhere I will be. I'll always stay with Nokia phones just for the common charger.
