    The fact it is GSM only means that, in the states, you would be limited to T-Mobile only.

    Disappointed. I had hoped for a better specced phone for someone like my father who doesn't want a smart phone. A new model to replace a 2008 era Motorola flip phone that at least supports 3G. Something that supported VoLTE.
    I now have the 7+, continuing my pattern of buying every other iPhone generation.

    Even the smart phones are limited in the LTE bands for the US. No Band 12 for T-Mobile or 17 for ATT. No CDMA support for Verizon or Sprint. In the future, I want the capability to buy a phone that supports the carrier of my choice. For a mid priced model, it looks like Moto's new phones.

    Android 'clean and untouched'
    What we think is most appealing about the new Nokia trio is the attitude towards software. The phones come with pure Android 7.1 Nougat - the company didn't touch a thing - and a commitment for timely updates. Effectively, this makes them the affordable Pixel phones Google never gave us...

    VoLTE on the 3310?

    Nokia's feature phones are all GSM 900/1800, not targeting the US market.

    Which is why it is a disappointment for customers in the US. At some point Verizon/Sprint will drop CDMA. So phone on those networks will need VoLTE to talk. And at some point T-Mobile and ATT will start to phase out 3G/4G for LTE, and even feature phones there will become less useful.

    There are still a number of people who only use a cell phone to talk. Not even to text.

    Not me, of course. I would feel cut off if all I had was a feature phone. I've had a smartphone continuously since the Treo.

    Australia is phasing out the 2G network, so I'm not sure why they made the phone as a 2G phone. Doesn't seem to even have Wifi.

    Post MWC 2017: The Return of Nokia

    (Posting this here to direct readers from the front page to the appropriate thread...)

    So this year's Mobile World Congress has kicked off in Barcelona, Spain, and it seems that Nokia is back in a big way. Now I could start off with their new and rather lackluster Android phones, but you and I both know what you're really here for: the re-imagining of the Finnish phone-maker's iconic 3310. Here it is—and yes, it plays Snake.

    Now the bad news: it's a 2G phone, and only supports Asian and European bands at that. Here are the full specs from its product page:

    PERFORMANCE
    Operating system: Nokia Series 30+

    DISPLAY
    Size and type: 2.4” QVGA

    CAMERA
    Primary camera: 2 MP
    Flash: LED flash

    STORAGE
    Internal memory: 16 MB
    MicroSD card slot: Support for up to 32 GB, memory card sold separately

    BATTERY
    Battery type: Removable 1,200 mAh battery

    NETWORK AND CONNECTIVITY
    Networks: GSM 900/1800 MHz
    Network speed: 2G

    DESIGN
    Colors: Warm Red (Glossy), Dark Blue (Matte), Yellow (Glossy), Grey (Matte)

    As for the Android offerings there is sadly no Nokia 8, at least not yet. Instead, it looks like the stellar record of leaker Evan Blass remains intact.
