Buy Quality Phones:
Even how expensive or how cheap cellular or mobile phones you want to buy, what matters most is the quality of a phone it has. Here are some tips and guides i'm going to share which I read in the other forum site on how to buy high quality phones regardless of it's current phone prices.
1. First, you need to test the phone you want to buy through hardware and software.
2. IMEI on box matches IMEI on phone (*#06#) and the IMEI on the phones sticker(battery compartment).
3. Minute scratches on the screws may mean that it has been opened/tampered with already. open the casing if possible to check.
4. Battery must be the actual battery specified by the model and that it is new and 100% original. It helps to bring a friend along who knows, fake batteries are very hard to spot these days. but some are obvious fakes
example: 6600 uses BL-5c, a bigger more expensive more powerful battery than say BL-4c. both looks the same but bl4c is slightly thinner.
5. Unit turns on the 1st time.
- LCD lights up as it should (watch out for dead pixels)
6. Make a call: there's sound coming from both the earpiece AND the loudspeaker; you can be heard by the person you called; play around with the tones; make the phone ring by calling it (i recommend you use ur own sim to test the unit you are buying) some units dont work with some sims. example, a batch of 6600 doesnt work with smart 64k sims. particularly version 4.09.
7. Type in a few text lines. check how each key reacts.
8. Test out other sims (different networks) to check if its openline as it should be. But if it is sold as locked or kit then no worries unless.
9. Casing fits snugly and no extra uncut plastic from the mold and check out if may worn out areas or used na signs.
10. Checkout the phone's firmware version (*#0000# for nokias) check unit code matches the actual unit. It's also good to know what version the unit comes in, compared to latest version available. You might consider having it upgraded to the latest verion right there an then Or checkout its manufacturing date (*#92702689# or *#war0anty# for nokias).
11. Make sure you are getting the right product. Some units have the same model number but intended for different networks. What this means is that you get less signal or no signal in many places where other dualband (900/1800) or triband(900/1800/1900) phones have signal. Example: product code RH-12 and RH-28. both are nokia 6230 and both are triband, but what you may not know is that (6230b) RH-28 functions as a single band 1800mhz gsm in the philippines. it doesnt have 900mhz band. only 850/1800/1900. Many shops dont know this difference actually exist. many shops purchase this type from suppliers thinking its the same and cut cost coz its cheaper. To the naked eye its identical to the RH-12 and it does work here in the philippines.
Nokia are nokias, SE are SE's...as long as its not recon/referb. then they are all original...they are of the same quality regardless of where it was made.
12. Those so called recon/refurb units are not just repaired units, they are actually and completely FAKE. made by different underground manufactures in china and are only made to look like those nokia's and SE's never buy RECON/REFERB, save urself a lot of trouble and money.
13. Tips in detecting a FAKE nokia unit.
notice each product has a code.
example: NSM-3D for 8250 and NSM-3 for 8210.
