Nokia C2-03 Review
The Nokia C2-03 runs the Series 40 platform, and although its interface offers a certain degree of customization, we think that the company could have done a much better job designing it. Sure, we liked how widgets and shortcuts can be placed on the device's home screen for quick access to pretty much any of its functions, but overall, the interface is quite unpleasant to look at, as if the designers have tried to cram as mush stuff as possible on the phone's tiny display.
Perhaps it would have been a good idea for Nokia to have stuck with the classic D-pad instead of equipping the C2-03 with a tricky touchscreen for marketing's sake. The interface as a whole simply doesn't feel optimized to be used with a touchscreen display, and navigating around isn't as fluid as it should be on a modern phone.
All of the phone's basic features – contacts list, messaging, calendar, alarm clock, are intuitive and pretty straightforward to use. You can search for a given name in the contacts list and the results would update in real time, which is pretty neat.
email client on the Nokia C2-03 supports the major email service providers, which makes setting it up as easy as pie. Furthermore, if you are an active social network user, Nokia has included an app that gives you quick access to Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr, along with a home screen widget to send you notifications on certain events.
Using two SIM cards at the same time is the perk that makes the Nokia C2-03 stand out of the crowd. While the primary SIM card slot is located under the phone's battery, the secondary one is located right on the device's side, which allows for SIM cards to be swapped on the fly. On top of that, you can pick which services each SIM card you want to handle. For example, texting and dialing can be charged to your primary one, while the secondary takes care of data connectivity.
In terms of software, the Nokia C2-03 comes with Nokia Maps out of the box. Maps can be downloaded over the web and stored on the device for offline use. You also get a handful of games and productivity tools. There isn't much more that comes pre-installed, but thankfully, the Ovi Store has a fair selection of games and apps that you are free to check out.Downloading software is a simple process, and all it takes is for you to register an account.

I have purchased the model Nokia c2 03. I won’t say it’s a bad gadget. There are few problems.
1. There is no option for viewing online video. Flash player is missing, though one may find it in some more chip phone.
2. Internal memory is too short for installing any software.
3. pdf reader is absent.
4. There is no download option.
It’s a request to everyone viewing my post; please suggest me the way to resolve this problem. And request for the software moderator to moderate the OS and add those feature to make the phone more complete and attractive.

Samsung C6712 Star II DUOS is also having Dual sim support with touch screen & better fetures than Nokia C2-03.

Nokia does not provide such software embeded instead try to sell pdf word zip anti virus and video player thru other SOURCES LIKE OVI. Means extra cost. Not a gud practice fm nokia.

Don't buy this phone.. If you did, you will regret it just like me.. A lot of its feature aren't working, for now Nokia c2-03 is a trash phone, lets just hope for a firmware update to be released soon. That's what Nokia c2-03 says.. Soon.. The question is when will it be released? i'm bored waiting for it. I'm thinking of buying Samsung phone this December. I have been watching the reviews of their phones on youtube and i think their phones are a lot better than Nokia.

Bad fone this one,network fluctuation,alternatively network failure despite of that strong signal. Nokia is not successful in duei sim fone. Samsung is very successful in duel sim fone.

Write additional, thats all We have to mention. Virtually, it seems as though you relied on the video clip for making your point. You obviously know what youre discussing, why waste your intelligence on just posting video clips to your blog after you might be providing us something informative to go through?

I have purchased C2-03 mobile in December, 2011. From the starting week, I am facing so many problems with this phone. I am really feeling bad as I purchased this mobile. Recently, I am not able to listening music on it. I have reset it and update the software online. After that, I am facing the more and more problems which I don’t have previous. Today, I thought to throw the mobile as I am fed up with c2-03 also with Nokia. If Nokia continues to produce this type of mobiles, soon Nokia will vanish in the Indian market. I will go to Nokia care to see if it will be solved or not. If still I face these problems, I will destroy the mobile and try to buy Samsung. Very bad Nokia mobiles………
49. Venkat.K (Posts: 3; Member since: 29 May 2012)
I hope the bad comments on Nokia will help the people to overcome from not purchasing the Nokia Mobiles. Its better go for Samsung..........

This is the worst phone Nokia has ever produced.
Nokia is thinking Indians are stupid enough to fondle with such petty toy.
I am listing a few cons of this phone which I faced:-
1. You can not delete a number form calling list. beware your wife can check if you call your girlfriend and wish to hide it from her.
2. You can not edit the name of a contact.
You can not add or delete the contacts.
many many many other I can write if i have time.
Indian will soon teach Nokia good lasson.
