The Good The Nokia 3155i is easy to use and features a roomy dial pad, a speakerphone, and an FM tuner. It also supports text and multimedia messaging.
The Bad The call quality on the Nokia 3155i is a bit muddled, and you have to purchase a separate headset to use the FM radio.
The Bottom Line The Nokia 3155i is an affordable starter cell phone but has only mediocre call quality.
Nokia 3155i (Sprint)
You know what you want: a basic cell phone that makes calls--and that's it. Forget about fancy cameras, Bluetooth, and multimedia. And you don't want to spend a fortune on it, either. Well, let us introduce you to the Nokia 3155i from Sprint. This basic flip phone won't overwhelm you with bells and whistles but instead offers a decent-sounding handset that can get job number one done: making calls. The Nokia 3155i is priced at $189.95, but after rebates and specials, you can get the phone for around $10.
Like most of the company's flip phones, the Nokia 3155i sports a blocky design that isn't particularly ugly but rather utilitarian in look, which is fine since this handset is all about making calls and not impressing fashionistas or early adopters. Outfitted in silver and midnight blue, the 3155i is relatively compact and light (3.3 by 1.7 by 0.9 inches; 3.9 ounces), but the expandable antenna adds another inch of unwanted bulk. The phone feels solid in the hand, but the hinge of the flip cover seems a bit loose, and we worry about its long-term durability. On the front flap, there's a large, 1.5-inch-diagonal external screen, and while it's only monochrome, it shows the date, time, date, battery and network strength, and caller ID (where available).
