A well done phone

it's the one for me

from Yahoo
Pro: easy to use,light Con: have yet to discover this is the phone for me, although it doesn't have sophisticated features like camera etc, its basic function is more than enough for me. i like the colours and the tones. i love the weight and the size!
I like it because it's small and pretty. Its best features are the color screen and the java games. The only thing I don't like it's the dirty sound when talking.

6100 Nokia Cellphone

from Yahoo
Pro: Good looking and cute Con: A bit slow, but still ok! Nokia 6100 cellphone is cool! Its handful size and colour screen make it the cutest Nokia Handphone ever. The price is affordable to all. Battery charging needs not long time. With its loud speaker feature, makes it even more convenient to use. I liked it very much!

Nokia 6100

This phone creaks when you text.The sound is very bad when making calls. Your ear will get hot and go red after 5 mins of talking.
