Nokia 6215i, a Convenient, Easy to Use No Nonsense Cell

I love this phone! I am hearing impaired, and have tried several other cell phones, but this is the only one I can hear both when it rings and in listening to the caller through the ear piece. I also love the CDMA display on the inside and outside screens. It is an easy to use, cute, small, convenient no nonsense phone. I killed my first Nokia 6251i when I accidentally washed it in the washing machine (it was inside my jeans pocket). My cell phone provider was no longer selling this model, so I tried two other models, which both failed me miserably! Next I went to good ole eBay and sure enough I was able to get a great replacement Nokia 6251i at a very reasonable price! I highly recommend this cell phone. Barbara Less

Junk

Pro: Slim Con: Everything else Cheaply made, poorly functioning, broken before 1 year. Nokia customer care is atrocious. I will never purchase another Nokia product, I have found Motorola to be far superior.

This is my first cell phone that I got with the Verizon Wireless plan and I am quite impressed. I really like the sleek glossy look that goes around the phone. Suprisingly enough after 7 months of use it doesn't have any major scratches on its surface. I have NEVER lost a call or had no service wherever I have gone while using this phone. It is amazing since I always used to have a terrible time trying to find a spot where my older phones would get one bar of service. I do have a complaint though, the screen on the inside of the phone is tiny. If your eyes are bad then I would recommend a phone with a larger screen. Other than that I praise this phone, especially since I didn't have to pay anything for it with my plan. Less

I just bought this phone from verizon as a replacement for my 6256i which rocked to high heaven. I bought this partially because of the glowing reviews in this area and especially for the signal reception reports. I find this phone to be poor in reception compared to my 6256i. It takes a couple of bars of signal to even boot where my 6256 was booting with not even a bar. The camera is crap but I knew that in advance. The buttons are way too close together and cause lots of screwed up sequences of button pushing. The clarity of reception I don't see. My mother who is a little hard of hearing can't understand me with this phone but had no problem with the 6256. The front display is tiny but the clock is large and readable. The inside display is small and made smaller with the banners up top and bottom with another banner added whenever voice or data mail is received. The colors are very vivid however. The available memory is VERY small...I can't believe they made a phone without more on-board memory. I'm getting another replacement sent since it will not perform some of the advanced functions due to it's inability to get a programming update via the *228 function. If the reception is the same on the next phone and the clarity is not understandable by my mother, I'm swaping for another phone. Less

Upon recieving the phone, there really wasnt anything wrong with it. However, online the description said that it was "new, never opened" but it clearly wasn't.

The Nokia 6215i may be an entry level phone -- one of those that are given away with contracts -- but does the job more than adequately. The reception is excellent, which to me is the most important feature. The phone does have an extendable antenna, which might seem out-of-style, but reception remained quite good without extension. The camera is very average, but as far as I am concerned, the phone camera is just for taking quick pictures to show your friends where you are, something funny, etc. If I want something I can print and frame, I'll still use my regular camera. There is a flash, which has come in handy. The most unique part of the phone, however, is the screen. Though small, the screens are made with new OLED technology, which is extremely bright with terrific contrast in average lighting. On a traditional LCD screen, there is a large backlight that sends light through every pixel, and each pixel is like a little nightshade. To make a dark point, the screen pulls the nightshade to block as much of the backlight as possible. But the pixels can't block 100% of the light; a little bit always leaks through, especially if you look from other angles. A good analogy is a window blind -- never perfect at blocking all of the sun, and if you look at it from different angles, you get more or less light through. On an OLED screen, each pixel is like a tiny little light bulb, which can turn on and off independently of one another. When they are off, they are completely off, which gives the screen its amazing contrast. It also looks identically sharp regardless of your viewing angle. Unfortunately, it is COMPLETELY invisible in bright sunlight, even more so than most cellphone screens. This is also because of the fact that each pixel generates light directly rather than blocking it. Even though the light generated by an OLED is impressive, it is no match for the sun, and gets washed out completely. On the other hand, since an LCD works by blocking light, it is still able to block some of the sunlight to form a visible image, even if it was designed to be illuminated from the back. The nightshade/light bulb analogy is again appropriate. In a sunlit room, turning on a light bulb makes a lot less difference compared to pulling the blinds. So, the OLED is a bit of a double-edged sword. My only other significant quibble is the low memory capacity, with no ability for expansion. 4 MB is just not very much; you won't be able to keep too many pictures or ringtones. Overall, the phone is quite good. It is small and light, and looks rather sleek. Most importantly, it makes crystal clear calls with no drops that I can remember. That would have earned it 5 stars, but the screen problem and limited memory knock it down a notch. Less

I like the small size, easy to use, can hear much more clearly than my last phone (an LG.) Dislike--wish graphics were larger, but can't have it all!
