don, 07 Feb 2012these is avery bad................... what's bad???
i've used Nokia 101 for almost 2 months. This handset is good for its price range. Only loudspeaker turns on by itself sometime but i dont face any problem else. This phone supports multi-lingual by doing text, it has speaking clock, scheduled message, screening list, mp3. One more thing : we can set different tone for sim 1 and sim 2. It will be better if Nokia can release 3 sim phone because its very useful in our country (Asia).
I'm from Indonesia,just bought it with the price IDR 285.000(29USD). I get the problem with the loudspeaker which automatically active when making/receiving a call. Checking *#0000# appears that the software version in 6.25 then I go to Nokia Care to request software update. After 1 hour waiting I get the new s/w version which is 6.65 and my nokia has no problem until now. I like this phone very much since it has many "smart feature" like scheduled sms,sms speed dial,call tracker(which is i can make time limit for a call),and screened number(which i can ignore any unwanted call&sms from my admirer lol..) Thanks Nokia.
inday, 03 Feb 2012hi van..i just bought a nokia 101 last friday..it doesn't have an ntc sticker on it..is that o... moreHi inday. yes, the unit is either a smuggled unit or of those rejected by the NTC. the problems you mentioned are the same problems of the Nokia 101 version 6.25. have you checked your firmware version? better if you have it be replaced with one which has NTC sticker. because you are not covered by Nokia Warranty in the Philippines if you do not have NTC sticker.
its a bad model, sound quality gud, 2 networks disconected to somany times
[deleted post]guys i thnk u need a Belle Update. Wait..nokia will surely provide the update.
i bought this yesterday here is my experice ... last mobile i used was n70(god of all time)...:D
here my review abt phn
this phone is mainly for the chit chatters class....and buyers who purchasing first time mobile or want to experice nokia ...
VALUE FOR MONEY (I ENSURE u will not regeret even if u use for 2-3 month)
good batery life ....
since mp3 supports via card slot so cant be bored by using this set
if u alter sim or use sim for cheap call rates
good keypad for messaging (160 chars in 45-50 sec presing speed ..:D)
loudspeaker with refined sound quality(..not like china phn ewww...)
good management of contacts and view
simplified color grafics .. iensure u like (pixels corrected)
ideal for gift to gf/bf or granparnts
WHY NOT TO BUY
u cannot delete or disable sent items in messaging
u cannot delete songs once inserted card into phn (..very bad or no file manager type option)
loudspeaker sometime automatic ativated..(bad for night call when mumma next to u )
not for buisness class pplz and tech freaks...(they need gprs or bluetooth :D)
panic headphone nokia provides nowdays all headset same earphone (nokia saving 0.01$ without puuting foamed cover in ear speaker)

tanduayice, 05 Feb 2012hey h0rhe, yes, it's essential to update your firmware my friend, it should solve all the iss... more(fix)- Sorry, I misread some comments here. Hahaha. I thought v6.65 is the latest firmware where in my mind is v6.50. Yeah, mine is v6.65. as I stated, still has many problems that can't resolve by technicians. ^_^
kumar, 04 Feb 2012plz dont buy this:
1. it does not support usb
2. no bluetooth also u need to purchase card... moreare you on the right mind?
what do you expect from a very basic & cheap phone?

h0rhe, 04 Feb 2012Hi tanduay.ice!
-Yes, I already check all settings. Even Nokia.Care.Center said it depends ... morehey h0rhe,
yes, it's essential to update your firmware my friend, it should solve all the issues you are facing.
Nokia will not release an update for nothing after all!
good luck! :)
dude, the battery in this cell-phone is BL-5C: the best battery in its series.
if u'r getting only 1 day back up, sth is seriously wrong..
for instance, i get smwhr around 6-7 days back up, on a normal usage
tanduayice, 27 Jan 2012hey h0rhe,
did you check your profile settings already?
-Yes, I already check all settings. Even Nokia.Care.Center said it depends on profile settings. No, they cannot confuse me because I'm electronic technician so I definitely understood them, even they can't fix the hardware/software because it's Nokia-engineering problem. (nah, probably I don't want to touch the inside of it because it has warranty covered so they must fix and do the work). They said the only thing to solve it is to sent on silent mode which is useless to do that where I'm using a headset to privately monitor the sound even I'm at work place.
-maybe this might be fix if I update it to v6.65.
i bought it from flipkart.com, battery backup is worst, i am getting 1 day and 5 hrs backup with basic usage, without using mp3 player, sms'es , flashlight.
Plz let me know how much backup u r all getting
