The Nokia 1661 is a no-frills phone for calls and texts only

By 

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Nokia - Cell Phone:

If you're in the market for a cellphone, you could either hate this phone or love it, but it depends entirely on what you need out of a phone. The Nokia 1661 is absolutely barebones with minimal functionality, a typical user interface with much to be desired if you actually care - BUT if you just need a phone for emergency and once-in-awhile calls, it's the perfect phone.

In terms of value, this phone can likely be obtained for almost-nothing to nothing with a pay as you go promotion, so compare it to other offerings in that price range. In that light, it has done everything I need of it in the last year of usage. I use it perhaps 10 times a month, for either a quick text message or a phone call, and the phone has always worked well in each situation. So no technical issues on my side.

The build quality is unsurprisingly very cheap; it has no weight to it as it's made entirely of cheap plastic, and the buttons don't feel that good to press relative to better quality phones. I would not want to drop this phone as it could likely break quite easily, but much higher quality phones still can break very easily. As long as they have a screen, it has a very equal chance of breaking on impact. At least this phone doesn't cost almost anything.

There's not much else to say; if you want lots of features and good build quality, look elsewhere. But if you want a no frills, very capable phone to use for calls and text messages, this is great value for the money.

The Nokia-1661 Cell Phone is the worst cell phone ever!

By 

from Worcester, MA

Comments about Nokia - Cell Phone:

I had left my usual cell phone on the bus a few months ago, I have a plan with AT&T so I went out a bought a new cell phone. I wasn't looking for a great interactive cell phone, I was just looking for something to get me through for the time being. What I wanted was a cell phone that could make phone calls and thats it, because I have been meaning to get a better phone and loosing my current phone gave me a reason to just grab a regular cell phone and research a good one. So I picked out this Nokia, and don't get me wrong it was cheap on price- but with this phone you seriously get what you pay for! I wanted a phone that could make just phone call's and this phone can barely do that! I have bought phones in the past that cost me right around what this one cost me, and they were nowhere near as retarded as this phone- and I know your thinking "Retarded?" But I seriously can't think of any other word to use to describe this phone! It's the perfect word! When I press the "Call" button, a screen pops up that says "Packet data not available" What the heck does that mean?? And it does it like five times in a row. It's not just the call button that does that either, the "Select" button does it, and so does the "End Call" button. Another thing is when I select one choice from the menu, something completely different pops up- like say I selected my "Phone Book"- the "Settings" menu will come up instead and it doesn't bring the same thing up every time sometimes when I select my "Phone Book" the "Settings" menu will come up, but other times it will be something else for instance the "Tools" menu which isn't even one of the selections- the "Tools" menu is a sub selection in one of the other menus (The "tools" menu is located in "My Stuff")! It is just unbelievable! I am currently researching phones so that I can get rid of this one- I hate it! So if your considering buying this phone- please save yourself some sanity, and don't!
