Jett, 17 Nov 2011thanks Mauragon, keep us posted. btw, which NCC did you contact?I contacted NCC Nokia Store in Greenbelt 1. Although the nearest is in Mall of Asia but there's a lot of people there so I prefer the one in Greenbelt 1. Not too many people so you get serviced right away.
Mauragon, 17 Nov 2011I called Nokia Care yesterday. Their latest version for RM-769 is still v6.25Mauragon,
No! not a 'Droid, I just wanted a simple phone which I could hold comfortably in my palm and make a call without the freakin squeaking from the back cover panel. You too should try the Samsung 1085 which costs alot less than the Nokia 101 and is sleek and functions better than the 101, and 1085 is my fav now...
Jett, 17 Nov 2011thanks for your comment Moe,
it will help a lot.. haha!
simple advice everyone if you need... moreJett,
Exactly, I am giving my review to the other people before they end up buying one. Nobody really would know about the flaws unless one has used the phone to the fullest. And the reviews I have read till now do not talk about these flaws. So that’s why ended up with this dumb phone. Basically, what really is bad about the phone is the design, the squeaky sound from the back cover when you’re holding it on a call. And the bulky design with protruding edges, does not seem comfy holding it in the hand. There are some really nice sleek phones Nokia used to make in S30 series [1616, 2310], not sure why they are messing up things now. They are just focused on making the high end phones better, and totally neglecting these range of phones. I hated having 101 phone so much I went a bought a Samsung 1085, and I just like it!…you should try this….

simple advice everyone if you need more than n101 can give and a computer or smart phone capability then don't buy this phone. you are wasting your time and money. this is not what you're looking for.. :) and make your self realize that this is s30 phone, it's so cheap in fact you get more than what you've paid for...
make a review before you buy, there's no one to blame here but your self.
I have bought this phone for basic calls and messaging. The Design is the worst, not very sleek, looks very bulky for a phone that does nothing much, the back panel cover is not seated properly [when I am on call, there is this squeaky sound it makes when holding it, very irritating], there is no proper grip to hold the phone [it keeps slipping], the graphics is horrible [some Indian designer must have done it, because these phones are being manufactured in India nowadays], the sound quality of the speaker is pathetic [there is some echo heard always on calls, because of the bulky size and open gap caused by the back cover panel and speaker. It boasts of a micSD card, but without Bluetooth or GPRS or USB, how does one expect to transfer music files to the microSD card? What a dumb feature for a phone that still cannot impress anyone!
Please do not go for this phone, it is one of the worst phones Nokia has ever designed. There are much better phones for the same price. Simple words this is the Worst phone......
guys w8 for nokia to update and fully publish this phone..:) i thnk next yr. for u to avoid restarts this tym just use another battery first temporarily.. tnx :)
I just googled and saw the 6.30 but with Ravil's 6.60 I guess I'm late in the news.
Ravil, How's the new software? did you experience restarts?
I have 2 101s and also with my gf and her sister's 101 we will be going to the nearest Nokia Care for an update while it's still under warrranty.
[deleted post]i see,

just a heads up my dear friends...
if it's going to be a windows phone, then that's what i have been waiting for!!!
by the way, you're welcome Priya and SAFDAR.

1. i cannot be specific with my answer with you as i haven't tried to use only one sim with my n101.
there is a function that you can set the phone to use only sim so why don't you give it a shot.. :)
2. i believe s30 phones don't have that capability..
Mauragon, 15 Nov 2011I'm really hoping that a firmware update would solve some if not most of the issues like the r... more@ pading Mauragon,
what is your source for RM 769 v6.30?
are you sure about that? where are you from my friend?
SAFDAR, 15 Nov 2011thanks for information. is the red color beautiful or the black for this set.@ Priya and SAFDAR
in my opinion the red one is more feminine, so i went for phantom black. my girl chose coral red.
fyi, i sold my 5530xpressmusic and 1280 for n101 :)
i updated my nokia 101 with the
