I used this as my main handset ever since it was released, even though I managed to test out loads of other handsets because of my job role in Orange I always, without fail, returned to my trusty old 702. Although this has now changed since I got an 8210 (although I still use the 702 in my car because I’ve got a car kit installed) I would still not hesitate to use it if I had to. This phone was, and still is, an absolute gem and I believe the only reason it hasn’t retained its popularity is the fact that it doesn’t have predictive text messaging or removable fascias. This and later its dual band counterpart the 6150 were also the mainstay of the corporate market but since the introduction of the 7110 and later Nokia models a lot of large companies have upgraded therefore leaving a shrinking requirement for new stock hence the discontinuation of production. As far as size goes the 702 is quite small in comparison to a lot of other models and is a very comfortable handset to hold, the keys are very responsive and of course it has the hugely popular Nokia navigation menu. These factors make it a very user friendly handset. It was also one of the first phones to give the user the profiles set ups a lot of the more advanced phones have now, this allowed the user to set up groups of contacts under different headings and allocate different call settings to each. For example you could put your girlfriend under “Lover”, friends under “Friends”, the boss under “Work”, family under “Families” etc etc and set the phone so that it would have a different ringing tone for each. You can even “mark” any particular groups you wanted and these wouldn’t ring at all if somebody in that group called you. Another new function included was the calendar, this allowed you to set all sorts of alarms to remind you of meetings, birthdays, etc. This from a work perspective was
invaluable and I for one have been very grateful for this particular function on more than one occasion when I’ve been away from my desk diary and had forgotten a meeting. In a way I suppose this made the 702 the first phone with an incorporated PDA built into it, albeit a very basic one. It was also the first phone to have built in games with snake being my personal favourite, of course a lot of people would say whats the point of having games in a phone but think of all the times you’ve been on the train bored stiff, snake at least gave you something to occupy your mind and kill 20 minutes !! Of course if you were with a like minded person you could go head to head and play them at snake by utilising the infra red and linking the phones together ….. aaahhhh, little things please little minds !!! As far the serious stuff goes the 702 was excellent and its battery life was brilliant, providing of course you had the lithium iron battery, then again even the earlier versions with the NiMH battery could not be faulted in this respect. There was a recurring problem for a time with the 702’s where the screen would fade, this though was easily solved by simply pressing down on the top of the screen and hey presto the screen would come back to life. The cause was eventually traced back to the elastomer lining which held the LED away from the glass and a change in the design rectified the fault. If there was one complaint I had about the 702 it was the fact that it wasn’t dual band, this sometimes caused you problems when you travelled abroad but it wasn’t a major issue as far as I was concerned, anyway when the dual band 6150 was launched (which is by and large the same handset) this problem was solved. So as you can probably gather from the tone of my review I have nothing but praose for this handset and I would say if you get the chance to own one don’t hesitate …. p
roviding of course you can live without being able to change your fascia !!!
The nokia 702, a phone which is now in limited numbers due to its production being stopped, is becoming outdated a little, although its still in the times with its infra red and fax capabilities. This phone looks quite smart and would suit the new business man, who hasn’t got the budget for a top end phone. This phone has the capabilities for ringtones, oporator logos and connecting to computers with nokia’s data suite. It has now been overtaken by the 6210 wap phone which is its superior in many ways and I would only recommend buying this phone second hand if it is the only thing you can afford as there are many better phones.
If you are thinking of getting a mobile phone you will definately be wanting a Nokia. I have used quite a few different kinds and have always found Nokia's the easiest to use. The Nokia 702 if far superior to the 402. It has a lot of extra features, the most useful being the phone memory. As well as the sim card you can also store numbers on your phone a)increasing the amount of numbers you can save, and b) allowing you to copy numbers from sim cards to your phone. I find this useful when changing phones/sim cards between people and not having to copy each number one by one. Another useful feature is the infra red sensor. Instead of spending money (only 10p I know but I am cheap) sending a business card you can 'shoot' it over to your friend, Star Trek style (much fun). Of course you get all of the basic features as well like games (good for passing time), alarm clock, diary etc. You can store all of your friend's birthdays in your phone and set it to tell you before so you don't forget! The 702 is capable of holding one personal ringtone, which can be downloaded/sent from the internet. I have also just found out that you can change the front covers but you have to buy a screwdriver kit to do so. I have just bought a lazer aerial which sends out pretty pictures when someone ones you which is different. You can buy a lead to link your phone to your computer enabling you to download caller group logos to your phone, you have to buy the software for this as well though. The 702 is definately better than both the 402 and 3210.
This is an excellent all round phone with many features, it's quite small, good looking and like most Nokia phones has an exceptional battery life. I use it regularly and the battery lasts me 4 days, but it can last a lot longer. I am hopeless when it comes to remembering things, but now my phone's calender beeps me reminders and informs me of events. I no longer forget things like posting someone a Birthday card, remembering to pay a bill Etc. I really think this feature is great, you don't get it on all Nokia phones. I use the Alarm Clock feature every day to get me up for Work, it has a 5 minute snooze button too. I send text messages regularly, it has a user friendly front end, complimented by a decent size screen to display 4 lines of text at once. The calcullar function can be useful, but I don't find it particularly easy to use. It has 3 simple games, although I got bored quite quickly. I must mention the ring tones on this phone, it has over 35 of them. It can even have 1 custom ring tone, but there's no facilty to create this on the phone itself. Other features include Caller Groups where you can have different ring tones for different groups of people, speed dial, profiles Etc Etc. This phone is available for free on most contracts. It's also known as the Nokia 6110 on Cellnet and Vodafone. The phone is only single band, which means it's not so good if you like to take your phone abroad (I don't anyway).
Well I have lost count how many times I have unintenionally dropped my phone or slung it across the room or thrown it about. A very wearing phone it has proved its existance in my life. I rely on it a lot, I have been without my phone for only one day and I would break into a sweat at the prospect of not having a phone in hand for much longer than that. Its safe to say mobile phones have become many people's lifeline. Being out and about a lot I need to keep in contact with my family and boyfriend. The Nk702 sparkled from the other side of the shop. I liked the look of it, this was Christmas time last year, the only other phone in my price range was the 5110 which I had looked at but hadn't appealed to me. Being on offer when I bought it aswell was even better. The layout of the buttons and the navigation around the phones menu was easy to work out and it has proved to be very efficient in my times of need. The infrared function has helped at times, mainly for sending numbers across to other peoples phone without misreading numbers etc. Still a smart looking phone, maybe not the most advanced or the nicest looking around it still keeps me happy and satisfied.
Yes my Nokia 702 has had a bath!!!!!, not intentially of course. I have owned my Orange 702 for about 18 months and have had no problems. About a month ago I was having a bath and accidently knocked my 702 into the bath. It was fully submerged and I quickly took it out, I realised that I did could have completely broken the phone as it had no display. I took the battery off and quickly tried to dry the phone. After 24 hours it was working again and I have had no problems since. I am definately NOT saying that the 702 is waterproof but it certainly did well in tolerating such a testing ordeal. I think the 702 is a great phone, it is dated but offers many user friendly options.
No one has ever had a bad thing to say about this phone.. All the newer phones maybe be dropping in size, but this phone has built a reputation that will never drop and cos of this reputation everyone wouldn't mind having it. It's built with functions galore. * Calendar.. Store all your important dates/meetings and you will be notified so that you dont forget. * Call Register.. Displays stats, such as, last 10 received numbers, last 10 dialed numbers. Time of calls. How long the last call was. How long all your calls were put together.. plus others.. all stats can be erased and started again whenever you want. * Messages.. send and receive text messages. The one thing that his phone has got (which many dont) is that when you send a txt msg, if you want to, you will be notified when the other person has received it on his phone.. (by this it means, when the person has actually received it.. if the other persons phone is switched off, then that does not mean the person has received it and you will then know that the other person hasn't read it yet). The notification is completly free (definitely works on the Orange networks, don't know about others). * Profiles.. Can have different tones for different people... you might want to have a different tone for some of your friends and a different one for another. Also you can assign different logos for different people. (a heart for the one you love?) It also has space for one ring tone off your own choice. * Settings.. various settings to suit the phone to the way you want it. * Games... three games. * Calculator. * Infrared.. used for receiving data from other equipments. Also can use it to play the 'Snake' game as a two player (play with someone else who has a nk702). You can also exchange caller group graphics for free throught the infrared. As well as that.. the phone is very durable
.. I've dropped it many times and it's still working fine..!!
OK, so its been out for a long time, and there are newer, sexier looking phones on the market now, but the nk702 still has to be the phone of choice as far as I am concerned. The size is, in my opinion, as small as you would practically want a phone to be, and the functions it offers are still the same functions offered in later handsets from Nokia. In fact, I feel it has the edge over the 3210 because of its ability to do data, which I use alongside a palm pilot for truly pocket sized net connectivity. Still the one to have I feel. OK, so there are better looking phones around, but when all the functionality is looked at, it is No. 1 as far as I am concerned
I am happy with this phone as it has several advantages along with afew disadvantages. The advantages that ths phone has for me are: The IR link which allows it to communicate with other products such as laptops, computers or similar phones. The diary and calender which include date alarms for such things as birthdays or anniversaries. Also the ability to store 1 ringtone which can be sent to you from the net or from a 3210 or other nokia with a composer. Another thing I like about this phone is its weight as it is much lighter than some other nokias of the same size. The menus are reasonably easy to navigate through although the disadvantages I see are the taking away of Nokias famous NAVI KEY which I missed from my 5110 but have got back on my 3210. This one button allows you to do everything as it is a multi purpose button. The only other disadvantage I have with this phone is the size of the screen as it is slightly on the small size for all the things it has to show in it. Overall I would say this is more of a business mans phone, where as if you are looking for something to have fun with and use casually, I would go for the 3210.
702 is a great mobile, it is a much upgraded version of the 402, 5110 and even the 502. It still has the same games and mainly the same features but there are a few extras. For e.g. it comes with a slim line battery and another very good feature of the phone is the Infa-red facility on it. You can connect it to a P.C, which can receive infa-red signals and can also play two player games with it. You can set different images to appear when somebody calls you and you can also receive ring tones and save them as a pre-set ring tone. You can hook it up with a data link cable and download things to it from the net as you wish. Overall I will give this phone a 8 out of 10 for ease of use and performance. So bad that they have stopped making them but an alternative to the 702 will be the 6150.
Well if you ask me yes I have had this phone for 12 months now and it has been one of the best phones i have ever had, the down sides to the phone there is no internet on the phone and compared to the newer phones this phone is way behind in its specifications, but I wouldn't buy this phone for a new phonenow as I know the newer phones are lighter and have better features but I am going to buy a new sim card for the pone and make the phone pay as you go because it will never ever get old. If your thinking of getting a cheap phone then this is the phone for you I have had it for 12 months now and I have had no problems at all. I have noticed that this design is now beingused for the more upto date models but if you put a phone cover case over the phone then people think your phone is new. I really like the look of my phone and I think this phone is perfect for Teenagers looking for a cheap, easy to use friendly Graphics. This phone is simply brilliant for its price as it costs nothing with a contract and if you are looking for a pay as you go phone then it costs £5 without a contract. This phone is just Great for the Price.
I've had my nk702 for about 18 months and it has survived some serious abuse in that time. I'm still using the originial LiIon battery which gives me about 2.5 days use normally, including and average of about 5 mins calls per day. New aerials are relatively easy to fit if you break them off (which requires serveral large drops onto the floor) and the rest of the phone seems to survive well. Not quite as sturdy as the Nokia 5.1, but probably more robust as it is smaller. I won't consider upgrading until I've tried a 6210 - and then only if WAP has become useable. The only real downside of the phone is that it is single-band 1800Mhz so not as flexible for roaming as a single-band 900 or (obviously) a dual or tri-bander. If you can still find them, you an usually pick them up for freee with a new contract connection on Orange.
The Nokia nk702 is a slim lightweight mobile phone that was years ahead of its time, appearing on the market a couple of years ago when the average phone could best be described as a digital breeze-block. Even today as the technologies have moved forward and the phones have become so small and light that a sneeze in the wrong direction could send them wafting under the door, this unit is still very desirable. It has a large, clear display with a mixture of text and graphics and even has an ‘online’ help facility to help you get used to the phone. It is a very elegantly designed phone that despite its age, it still appears modern. The nk702 is feature rich, in fact it would be fair to say that it is not only a phone but a personal organiser to boot. Features include – SMS, calculator, calendar (which also acts as a diary and alarm), caller groups (with graphics and changeable ringer tones) and games (including 2 player games that utilises the in-built infra red system). The nk702 boasts many ring tones and even allows tones to be downloaded from the Internet (www.yourmobile.com). I have found this phone to be highly reliable with up to 10 days standby (the phone has the charge available displayed) and is charged from flat to full within a couple of hours. The one downside that I have found with this phone that it has a slight tendency to ‘lock up’ (fortunately never during a call, it appears to happen when using its functions but is quite rare!). The phone uses CLI identification so that on inbound call, you have the chance to see who is calling (before answering) and by pressing the ‘busy’ button divert the call to your voice mail if so required. So, if you are after a unit that provides excellent functionality combined with reliability and don’t fancy forking out top money for the latest sets then the nk702 is definitely for you.
As a versatile, reliable mobile phone the Nokia 702 must rate as about one of the best on the market. With extensive phone and SIM card memory for names/numbers; call waiting; caller display; alarm clock; personal organiser; games; calculator; infra-red port for transferring data between phones; and an optional cable attachment for connection to a lap-top computer for web browsing makes it ideal for business and personal use. The phone is easy to use and the instructions clear and simply understood. Its compact, sturdy and attractive. Though newer models are now available - I have no plans to upgrade.
I had an nk 702 for well over a year, but decided to "upgrade" to a 3210e. What a mistake, the 702 has a great range of facilities, is small, lightweight and the batery lasts for ages. OK so you cannot change the facia, but with a handset like this, who needs to! Its not a posers phone, it is functional and is able to get the job done without fussy lights or too many whistles and bells. The games on the phone are classics.
