Nokia 106: Simply essential

The Nokia 106 features incredible battery life enabling you to talk from sunrise to sunset on a single charge. With up to 15.7 hours talk time and up to 21 days standby time it wont let you down. You can also use a micro-USB charger to power up your Nokia 106.

The Nokia 106 offers an iconic Nokia feature phone design in a tough polycarbonate body. Its inherent colouring means the colour runs through the material, which makes scratches less detectable. Thanks to the contoured design, the Nokia 106 fits perfectly in your hand. The carefully considered spacing between each button on the keymat, makes it easy to dial and text, even in the dark.

Featuring all your everyday essentials, it comes with the classic Snake Xenzia game and can store your entire address book with space to hold up to 2000 contacts. You can light your way with the LED torch, listen to your favourite radio stations with the FM radio and store up to 500 of your favourite SMS messages.
