Regarding dual SIM
by Pepe7 / March 3, 2013 12:53 AM PST

Keep in mind that 99% of those handsets have poor support post-purchase. Stick to single SIM if possible.

Also, 10,000 in which currency? Rupees? Pesos? Euro? (LOL)

Shame you asked for that. I rarely see phones get that old. You should not get this.

The average life span of any cell phone is only 2-3 years. Yes, it is possible to have a phone 4-5 years but not likely.

I meant that the cell phone / smart phone which i buy should be working without any problem for that 4 yrs....
and pardon me, its maximum 4 years...

and also, i don't want to go to a service center for a repair for that 2-3 years as per your suggestions...

Life span.

The only old phones I see are simple things. Usually they are the simple "phone" phones with maybe a new battery after a few years. Not one maker today gives much past a year warranty.

Think about it.

In what way is Windows Phone 8 incomplete? I didn't read anything about incompleteness in the reviews of the new Nokia Lumia's, for example.

In what way is Windows Phone 8 difficult to use?
