Nokia C1: Original Dual SIM Nokia Phone (2 Slots For SIM card)




After years of watching their rivals introduce one dual SIM phone after another, a few months back Nokia finally decided to join them and unveiled its first mobile phones capable of accommodating two SIM cards at the same time.


 The Nokia C1-00 works with two SIM cards and comes with a color display, a built-in FM radio and a handy flashlight. As the short specs sheet reveals, there is no camera on the C1-00 back, and there is no need to look for a memory card slot either – you won’t find any.


Here’s the pros and cons of getting a Nokia C1-00.

Key features:

  • Entry level dual SIM feature phone
  • Dual-band GSM support (GSM 900/1800 MHz), no dual standby
  • 1.8" 65K-color display of 128-by-160-pixel resolution
  • FM radio
  • Flashlight
  • Low price
  • Promising 1020mAh battery

Main disadvantages:

  • Only one SIM card is active at a time
  • Keypad not comfy enough
  • No memory card slot
  • No support for GPRS, EDGE or Bluetooth
Long story short, the Nokia C1-00 feature pack is actually just fine but only one of the two inserted SIM cards is active at a time while the inactive one is unreachable.

Despite that, the Nokia C1-00 is still quite useful. You don’t need to turn off the phone each time you want to toggle the active SIM card, and let’s not forget that the C1-00 is among the most affordable phones out there.

The Nokia C1-00 comes in a plain cardboard box. Other than the phone itself, you’ll get the typical basic accessories: a charger and the good old one-piece handsfree that ends in a 3.5mm audio jack. It comes in handy when making phone calls while driving or when using the FM radio (the phone lacks a built-in antenna). There’s, of course, a manual too.




NOTE: If you want to switch from one active SIM card to another, press and hold the asterisk key, while the phone is in standby mode.

Two SIM card slots and a standard 3.5mm audio jack along with a built-in FM radio – not bad at all for the price you pay.
