an affordable dual-SIM phone from Nokia
Nokia C2-00 supports two SIM cards. Both SIMs operate on the same dual-bands 900/1800MHz. Nokia C2-00 joins C1-00 and the new Nokia X1-01 music phone in Nokia’s dual-SIM phone lineup. Switching from one SIM to another requires you to hold down a key. Unlike the cheaper C1-00, Nokia C2-00 comes with dual-standby features, which means users can receive calls and SMS on both the active SIM and standby SIM. In addition, the secondary SIM slot is hot swappable, meaning that you can remove and insert SIM cards into the secondary SIM slot without having to switch-off the phone, a very convenient feature. These two features make Nokia C2-00 a great double SIM phone.
A dual-SIM phone empowers you; you can take advantage of reduced call rates, without losing your existing line. If one network is erratic in a given location, you can switch to another network with better signal, keeping you in touch with those that matter to you. Another possibility being promoted by Nokia is the possibility of two people sharing the same phone, but each having a separate line.
Nokia C2-00 features a 1.8-inch colour TFT display. The display offers a resolution of 128 x 160 pixels and a colour depth of 65k. Nokia C2-00’s display shares the same spec as the Nokia C1-01, C1-02, and C1-00.
