    low end phones of nokia are vulgar and a kind of cheating to middle class buyers. ie. from Rs 1100 to 6000 priced mobs. no feature no facilities nothing. actually the nokia company is cheating indian people. Others are offering 2 to 3 sim, multimedia, camera, mp3, 4 etc.4 gb mem. etc etc. at the cost of Rs between 1400 and 3000.only.
    don;t buy low priced nokia mobiles. this is my experience. other companies are offering plenty of features and low price.

    Nokia is a cheater in indian market, other companies like samsung, lg, micromax, lava etc. provides better phones in the middle range of cost, but nokia phones have no special features and having the high cost.
