I just bought the C2-01 and love it. Yes, a bit pricy, but practical, in comparison to what it replaced. I had an HTC Desire, which I hated, try answering while your driving! In Sweden we can still talk and drive. I gave the HTC to a younger family member.
After that I bought a Galaxy GT-I5500. A more practical phone, but like the HTC, the battery life is horrid. I gave the Galaxy also to a younger family member.
In closing, it's nice to be back to a common sense phone, that has good features and doesn't have to be charged up constantly. I just don't understand the global frenzy concerning tablets and touch screen phones in general. To me their only practicality is if you commute on public transport every day or dare I say, just to keep up with the Jones-es.
I purchased my c2-01 in June for $129.00 AU. I replaced a 3 month old samsung f480i, which had very poor call quality, hence my decision to go back to an older style Nokia candy bar design. The call quality of this phone is good but I am disappointed in the service offered by Nokia. Unfortunately the usb data lead I purchased was faulty and I had to replace it at my own expense. I also have contacted the customer support department a second time, to advise that the battery only lasts 48 hours, whether the phone is used or left on standby. I was advised to purchase another battery, once again at my own expense. Considering the cost of this phone and the lack of support, I feel I could never buy a Nokia product again.
I have now bought two Nokia C2 cellphones and both starting giving trouble after a year - in my mind they are junk and should be removed from the market. Rubbish product. Going back to Samsung and will never touch another Nokia again.
