Using two SIM cards

With the possibility of inserting two SIM-cards, the Nokia C2-00 can be used for your business as well as personal SIM-card. The 'main SIM-card', indicated as SIM1, is placed under the battery, as usual. The extra SIM card, indicated as SIM2, can be inserted into the side of the phone. In order to switch to the second SIM-card, it is not necessary to turn off the Nokia C2-00. That is very handy! The SIM-card can be removed by opening the cover and pushing in the SIM-card a little bit.

In the Nokia C2-00’s menu, the contacts of both SIM cards are shown under ‘Contacts´. Contacts can be moved or copied from one SIM to the other or from your SIM-card to the phone itself. On the Nokia C2-00’s 2.6" screen, both SIM-cards, with provider and range, are shown. When you make a call or write a text message, the Nokia C2-00 lets you choose SIM1 or SIM2. You can also give a preference for one of the SIM-cards under ‘SIM settings’ in the menu, and then this one is used to call and to send text messages. Incoming calls and messages are still received on the other SIM.

Nokia C2-00 phone functions

The Nokia C2-00 is clearly a beginner cell phone with Dual-SIM functionality. There are a few other functions available, such as an Internet browser and the possibility of setting up an e-mail account. Personally, I think it would be a waste to get a data subscription for this phone. Without Wi-Fi, you always have to rely on the network. Perhaps that is handy for emergencies. In the Nokia C2-00’s menu, under 'Music' there is also an FM-radio, and the headset that comes included must be attached as it serves as the antenna. Other applications on the Nokia C2-00 are a stopwatch, an audio recorder and some games.

Photography with the Nokia C2-00

The Nokia C2-00 can be used for mobile photography, thanks to its 2 megapixel digital camera, as long as you do not expect too much of the photo quality. The camera has a maximum resolution of 640x480 and offers a 4x digital zoom. Additionally, there is a built-in self-timer and a simple photo-editor. Further, the Nokia C2-00 Dual SIM phone is equipped with a simple video function; the phone saves videos in a 176x144-pixel resolution. Via the integrated Video player, the video can be displayed immediately. Photos and videos taken with the Nokia C2-00 can also be easily transferred to a personal computer via Bluetooth.
