A Basic & Dependable Workhorse
I've owned my Nokia 3595 (through T-Mobile) for about 10 years and still love it. It is tough, easy to use, and the stand-by battery life still lasts about a week. Both reception and audio quality are excellent. I've long since stopped my monthly plan and pay $100 a year for 1000 minutes (and have never used them all). I'm a very light user, saving it for quick calls and emergencies, so I don't really need anything more. It feels great to save money and have a dependable phone on hand.
Obviously it is not for everyone in this age of do-everything smartphones, but it suits my needs perfectly. I would also recommend it for parents who want to get their kids a nearly bullet-proof emergency phone, but want to save money and not "distract" their kids with internet access and tempting apps. As of this writing, it can be found unlocked starting at around $20. I'm considering picking up another one because my wife prefers my 3595 to her more modern touch screen Samsung. Nokia hit a home run when they made this model, and the ball is still in the air.
UPDATE: 07/17/2015 - Mine finally started having issues recently where calls would go through, but I could not hear the person on the other end. It worked on and off. Removing the battery to reset for the closest tower didn't help. My wife and I ended up getting the iPhone6. A lot more $ but what a difference. The Nokia 3595 worked great for a long time though. A 10 year old cell phone!!!

I mean how can I complain... it was free with my service!
Overall it is not a bad phone... it has plenty of options like text messaging and all that fun stuff... It has voice dialing (you know when you just say the name and it calls the person) if you feel like setting that up... A nice address book feature that allows you to store several numbers under one name and label them with cute icons like a house for home phone and a little cell for mobile phones etc...
Sometimes it freezes up (kinda like computers) and you have to remove the battery to get it to work again!? What do you expect for free though?
Major complaint: WHERE'S SNAKE??? I miss it! But there is a cute bowling game on it!
It's a phone... it serves its purpose. It does not take pictures, but then again that's what cameras are for!
