10. Changeable phone covers... it's great to be able to personalize your phone.
9. It's incredible easy to use... and it's pleasant looking.
8. It's got a good color display, very bright and cheerful.
7. It comes with fun games, cute ringtones, and nice wallpapers that are free, so you don't necessarily need to buy any.
6. But if you want to... it comes with T-Zones, which means you can access the Web and buy ringtones and wallpapers, etc., from the phone.
5. It comes with AIM built in, so you can access that and use it easily, it's not confusing. Also, every message you send or receive counts as a text message, so there are no obscene fees.
4. Bringing me to text messaging... . it's very easy to use and fast with text messages... once you figure out the predictive text mode; writing out a message is very fast and easy.
3. Don't like searching through the phonebook? It has voice recognition. Ditto speed dial.
2. It's under T-Mobile... actually, that's only good for T-Mobile users...
1. It's cheap.
10. After a while, you WILL get tired of your faceplate/ringtone/wallpaper... and its money down the drain.
9. It doesn't pick up signals as easily as I would like.
8. No speaker phone.
7. No email.
6. No Internet... just AIM and T-Zones.
5. No camera/video recorder.
4. The phone book is small, and tends to break down... causing some major annoying problems.
3. Only a few people can be put in memory under voice recognition and speed dial.
2. No PTT... which I consider a very bad thing, though you might not...
1. The memory screws up after a while... and slowly the phone deteriorates until you have to replace it. This probably will happen once a year with good care.

So there you have it, the Nokia 3595. I would give it 3 out of 5.
I bought this phone in March of 2004 for $80 or $50 -- I can't remember now. I have been using this phone non-stop for three and a half years and I have been very pleased with it. This phone is a basic phone -- phone calls, text messaging and that's about it. If you don't need Internet or fancy things, then it's the phone for you.
Signal: I live in South Central Kansas, have service through Cingular (now AT&T) and have never had problems with the phone's service. I also travel across the Eastern half of the US and always had signal unless I was in a specific area that they had on their map that wasn't covered. Areas like the UP of Wisconsin etc. had difficulties. I was in New York State once and picked up on a Canadian signal even though I was still in the States. The phone has eight bars on the signal strength and I liked that it had eight and not four because then you could really tell how strong/weak the signal was.
Volume: The ringer volume and the ear volume are great. The phone rings loudly (and you can change the volume) and the ear volume can easily be changed while you're using the phone -- for those loud talkers. The phone also has different profiles for say work, school, normal. This is handy.
Durability: This phone really does hold itself together. I can say that in the last year things have started to fall apart though. There is a finger grip on the back and in the heat of the summer last year it started coming off (the glue was letting go). I just stuck it back on there and it has stayed put. Then there is a small Nokia sticker on the front by the ear speaker, and it came off a couple of months ago. I've dropped this phone several times and it's never "broke" on me. I've never submerged it in water, and I try to take care of it.
Overall: Great phone -- lasts forever, basic, cheap, just what you need to make phone calls and send messages. I'm not even sure if they sell it anymore though.Was this review helpful to you?
