If you need a simple, no-frills phone that keeps you in touch, the Nokia 1600 deserves a serious look. This compact, lightweight candybar phone features a color screen with 65K colors, 20 polyphonic ringtones, MP3 ringtone capability, icon-based phonebook, and speaking clock with alarm. It’s the perfect complement to a Net10 prepaid wireless account.
The candybar-styled Nokia 1600 offers long battery life, with up to 5.5 hours of talk time and 18 days of standby.
The Net10 pay-as-you-go wireless service offers all local, long distance and roaming calls at one low price of 10 cents per minute. All Net10 prepaid wireless service is provided by TracFone Wireless–America’s #1 prepaid wireless company with a national footprint covering 99 percent of the U.S. population. There are no contracts, credit checks, monthly fees, security deposits, activation or deactivation charges, or age restrictions.
All Net10 handsets have a display that shows the actual airtime balance on the phone’s display for ease of tracking usage. Net10 handsets also carry an “instant refill” feature that allows users to add airtime directly from the handset on a real-time basis. Key digital features include free call waiting, free caller ID, free voicemail and text messaging at 5 cents per message.
At first, the 1600 looks like a mild-mannered candybar phone. Looks can be deceiving, though. The 96 x 68 pixel display, which features support for 65K colors, gives the user a crystal clear screen, which makes it easy to type text messages and place calls. An internal antenna means there’s nothing to snag in your pocket. The simplified menu and navigation with 4-way scroll key and easy-to-use key pad make for easier phone calls and text messaging.
The 1600’s address book can store multiple phone numbers, as well as physical and email addresses. Meanwhile, the phone’s built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear. Polyphonic ringtones are included, as is a vibrating alert. Ringer IDs let you assign specific ringtones to particular callers.
The 1600 is a natural mobile messaging companion with support for text and picture messaging. T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit– a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.
Other features include:
- Stores up to 200 contact entries (plus 250 stored on SIM card)
- Full color-display, screensavers and wallpaper
- Store up to 60 SMS text messages
- Full duplex speakerphone
- Headset jack
- Changeable faceplates
