Nokia 2330 Classic - A Great little phone !!
Decided on this phone after a) reading reviews and b) got fed up buying phones that do everything and then only used them for calling and texting !! I've gone back to basics.
I haven't had a Nokia for several years now but I have to say, I'm delighted.
Stylish, small, light and very good value. Nice clear screen, the resolution is not too bad but obviously can't compete with higher end models. The camera is adequate with no frills, better for outdoor shots as there is no flash. The big plus with this phone is the battery life. I'm not a big user however, after the initial charge the phone went 8 days before running out. I expect this to improve further still once the battery has been run down and recharged a few more times ! The earpiece volume is very good as are the ring tone volumes.
The phone menu is clear, concise and very easy to navigate.
Only one really and that is a concern as to the quality of the central keys, (2,5,8,0). They do seem a touch fragile and I would imagine that if you were a heavy texter they may cause an issue.
That said I would thoroughly recommend this phone to anyone, like me, who wants a, no frills, no fuss, value for money model that does exactly what a mobile phone should do, make calls, receive calls and with a bit of texting thrown in.
Had it not been for the keypad issue, I would of awarded this phone the full 5 stars.

Good value for money, basic set of facilities, including web email, bluetooth and camera. Paired easily for hands free car use.
Battery life and durability not as good as early Nokias, but that comment applies to all modern phones.
Wouls recommend this to others seeking good features at cheap price.
Great little phone
This phone is fantastic so small yet easy to use with good size buttons. Great battery life something like 5 days on standby before you have to recharge. Also I noticed a big difference from my previous erricson xperia the way this little phone picks up the signal, get full bars in places I was lucky to pick up 1 with the erricson. At around 40 quid you cant go wrong!!!
