The Nokia 3500 classic is everything that most people will need in a phone. If you are someone who wants to check the internet and update their facebook while sitting in a park or cafe, then stop reading now.
The 3500 is basically the same phone that Nokia released when they first started getting popular a decade ago - it can make calls, it can do SMS. Added to this are the other useless items such as the games and applications.
Of course it has all the trimmings like bluetooth and a pretty decent camera (2 megapixel), a radio and MP3 player, but my favourite part about this phone is that it just works.
I can set an alarm and it wakes me up - I get a call and I hear it - I send a message and it is easy to retrieve. The battery life is also superb and lasts about a week with normal use.
One thing that makes this phone unique is that it has a metal band around the front of it to protect it from drops and bangs. This is very useful for people like me who manage to drop things all the time. Of course Nokia has always been good at this - almost any Nokia smashed into pieces will be put back together and work within about 3 seconds. A friend of mine also bought this phone because his toddler is now old enough to know how to throw things against the wall. His phone still works.
If you are really into listening to music on your phone, you can insert a miniSD card into the phone - my 2 gb card holds well over the amount of music I will ever listen to from my phone. Something to be wary of is that the factory headphones are very flimsy, so be careful with them or learn how to use a soldering iron.
The price of the phone is very low - this varies depending on where you buy it, so I won't write anything here.
Nokia 3500c was given to me by my parents when I started my senior year in high school. I needed a cellphone to use for communication and for entertainment. I was really happy to be able to purchase this product. The model that I bought came out also with a 512 mini sd card, a very valuable item because I needed space for music, images and videos. It is handy, has sleek design and the keypad is awesome. It is very useful wherever and whenever I am. I use it as an alarm to wake me up everyday for school. Then on my way to school I use the music player to keep me company while riding the car and walking to my room. I also find it very useful because I can connect it to our computer with a usb cable, one thing that at that time is not always found in phones. I download applications and programs then load it into my phone, then voila! I can read ebooks, I can save text files, I can play numerous homebrew games, I can convert, I can manage my budget, I can do everything! It's
almost like a pocket personal computer. I always bring it with me because of its many functions. I am forever glad that I have this phone.
Nokia has never disappointed me and I'm very happy to have received this phone as a gift. Simple yet so useful.

Design and look
Phone is measured about 107 x 45 x 13.1 mm, 59 cc, and the total weight is about 81gm. Now the good point here is that its thickness is only about 13mm and it can be consider in slim category phone.

Resolution is average but phone is compact so they have provided enough screen size with good resolution.
In terms of internal memory this phone doesn't have good memory and there is only 8.5 MB user memory. Phone also support micro SD card and maximum support capacity is about 2GB. Not a big point but as considering this phone maximum support memory is average.

You have to switched off your phone to remove the card otherwise there is a chances of DATA loss.
Phone supports all traditional connectivity solutions except latest Wi-Fi and 3G. it has Bluetooth, USB, GPRS, EDGE etc etc. Now the time is for important 3G technology and Wi-Fi connectivity but phone doesn't have both of them. Not a big matter in this category of middle range phone.
Music, FM and camera
There is 2 megapixel camera but doesn't have autofocus and flash. Not a good camera but it is time pass solution they have provided.
Phone has a MP3/MP4/AAC/AAC music player and stereo FM radio. You are unable to get stereo sound in FM without handsfree and even also in music player. So have a good handsfree for better music experience.
Battery back-up is average with Standard lithium ion battery, Li-Ion 820 mAh (BL-4C). 820 mah is not a good capacity but it has average back-up with about 3 hours of talktime and same as in music and FM.
