Customer Review: The way to go
The Nokia 2630 is a good practical phone with a useful camera and speakerphone. There's nothing more useful than a speakerphone when waiting on hold. The FM radio is an added benefit although it requires that you have earphones handy in your pocket or purse.
I threw away my free flip-phone from the provider (actually I stashed it in a drawer) and shopped for a phone with the features I wanted. Buying an unlocked phone is a lot cheaper than upgrading from my service provider.
The Nokia 2630 is really thin making it great for a pocket phone. The best part is that it has no side buttons to accidentally push that hang-up on the caller when you reach in your pocket to get the phone. The sound quality could be a little better especially in noisy environments but I haven't found that to be a major problem. All in all I am quite satisfied.
