Nokia Lumia 710: Connected to my world

, posted: 2-Apr-2012 11:00

The Nokia Lumia 710 has connected me to my world. I always have wifi and Bluetooth permanently on so I do expect to charge the phone nightly. I want to be connected whenever possible, however possible.

The down side of that is using up the battery.

The Nokia Lumia 710’s battery is good for a day’s normal (to me) use. Using the internet, accessing emails, my children playing games, checking Twitter or Facebook etc.

Using Wifi is easy to set up, a 12 year old can do it, and did do it on my phone. I found it would pick up wifi connections whenever I was in the area of a signal.

As for Bluetooth, I use a stereo with built in Bluetooth handsfree and as soon as the car was turned on it would pick up the 710. Sound quality is good when I am on a call in the car. The person I was talking to have no trouble hearing me. Which is always a bonus in any conversation.

I have had no trouble using internet via 3g or wifi. I found it fast and with no lagging.
To me having a phone that will keep me connected to my world is the most important fact in choosing a phone, and choosing the mobile provider.

A good priced plan is always good but also necessary to me is how the cellular coverage is. I hate dropped calls, or lagging when I want to watch video. I have not experienced anything like that since using the Nokia Lumia 700 on Telecom XT.

My friends who are middle-aged are interested in a phone that can connect them to their families overseas. They seem very interested in the windows phone. Several like how easy it is to set up and use.  And also the price of the Nokia Lumia 710 is very attractive to first time smartphone users. Telecom has made it very simple to access my mobile account to addon or change my plan. This appeals to me as my life is always changing, and I want a plan to suit me now.

Taking photos and sending them to my ipad, desktop or someone else’s computer is so easy. I downloaded dropbox onto the lumia and then put the photos in it. Must admit I really like using dropbox and was hoping they would have one for the windows phones. Very fast and easy transfer of photos and any Microsoft word document.

We might miss a party in the family, concert or some event, but with a phone and internet access we can check out the videos or photos of the party anywhere. That’s what we want, in our hand at our finger tips. Right now!
