Nokia 1200 and Nokia 1208 come with built-in flashlight, which come very handy for moving around or searching for things in the dark. This page contains information on how to activate your Nokia 1200 flashlight.
There are a number of ways to turn on your Nokia 1200 torchlight. Here are a number of ways:
Press and hold UP Navigation key
One of the fastest ways to activate your Nokia 1200 flashlight is to Press and hold the UP navigation key. This must be done when your phone is on the home mode. The home mode is the mode were you see your battery level and network strength.

Note that you have to keep holding the UP key for the flashlight to remain on. Once you leave the UP key, the flashlight will off.
Press UP Navigation key twice in quick succession
The first method above can be useful when you need the flashlight for a few seconds or if you have no need of both hands. This is because you must hold on to the UP key, which may be inconveniencing.
