I just bought this phone yesterday in Hong Kong for HKD288 (USD37) as a spare phone after sending my smartphone to service.
The battery for my Nokia 101 is BL-5C 1020mAh 3.7V 3.8Wh. It's said to have standby time for over 32 days!
The choice of languages for UI includes English/Traditional Chinese/Simiplified Chinese.
The dual SIM works great for calls and sms.
Voice/Ring tone are reasonably loud and clear. Love it.
for u to avoid restarts or bug problems if u are lazy about the tips just replace your battery to BL-5C or other....
please give us detailed information about your hands-on experience with nokia 101 :) salamat!
cplover, 07 Nov 2011this phone is excellent but the battery BL-5Cb is very sensitive because it is only 700 mah so... moreReplace your batteries to bl-5c / bl-5j.
if you are in the Philippines price should be around P500 / P800.
HongKong, 07 Nov 2011Nokia 101- My phone hv problems with the loundspeaker (i exchanged with a new phone and still ... morehi,
really? the loudspeaker turns on before or after you answer the call? did you check if there's a setting for automatic loudspeaker turn on/off?
even the new unit has the same problem. was it the same color? then there must be something wrong with the software.
i hope fw update will be released really soon.
thanks for your comment..
this phone is excellent but the battery BL-5Cb is very sensitive because it is only 700 mah so tips in avoiding restarts avoid draining the battery power because of battery low.. it affects the power of the battery charge it if the battery low warning is in 5th to 6th warning ok... gudluck .. guys God bless..:)

yeah, same here. looking fw to firmware update. i really hope nokia will take care of the bugs that 101 has now, and release the fw update really soon, better yet update the newly manufactured units.
i was at the mall yesterday, surprisingly 101 is a best seller.. NOKIA, I BELIEVE THAT"S ENOUGH REASON TO NOT LET US DOWN.. i my self am a big fan :D
i just hope i will get a good unit. lol!
don't want hassles at all!
cheers Nokia!!! :)
planning to use a 4gb mc. would you know any difference between SD and SDHC except from memory capacity?
maybe i'll go for sandisk.
about the other bug you said you discovered, can you confirm about it now buddy?
what if it's just to store the message (or another draft folder/outbox) but does not automatically resend the text.?
so the message is ought to be sent manually then later.?
message no. don't matter at all, but it's a plus if they add it.
btw, are you from Bicol?
Jett, 04 Nov 2011hei buddy,
iknow a place where i can get nokia 101 only for 1,500. 4gb sandisk memory card ... moreSure. I'm looking forward to a software update if this really solves the problem.
I use a Kingston 2GB MicroSD (not SDHC) don't have much mp3s.
I'm using a 2GB Kingston MicroSD card.
I haven't tried to put in a 16GB class 4 since I don't have that much mp3s and I want to make use of my extra 2GB memory card.
It's like gambling as to where to get a unit that will not restart.
I already had my 101 sent to Nokia Care twice and the diagnostics came ok. I just can't figure out why it restarts.
One more bug I discovered is that the send later messages wasn't sent at all. will do further testing.
One wish I would like to have is the message number in the Inbox / Sent Items / Drafts Folders.
im a nokia fan. dont buy this fone! its a waste of money.. now im using it with 1 sim only, becoz dual sim function is just a gimik.. my worst fone ever! restarting over n over n over again..
Its truely a nice phone.. I have bought it.. Its good for music lovers.. Battery backup is excellent..........
