hye, im using this phone about 1 week already, and buy in malaysia with cost about RM105 (the cheapest price, normally RM135) and warranty from ZITRON (NOKIA). This simple phone with memory card, MP3 and support dual sim is really awesome. After all, ive found some major problem with this phone which is line drop, phone restart some times and the battery can stand up to 2 and the half days for standby (in the box said up to 25 days standby) .
i have BL-5C battery from my nokia 1208 phone and it is not charging on my new nokia 101. why it doesnt work?
I am using this phn..
but it Restart always.
may be ram does nt better.

I'm testing the send later function of... morebuddy,
good to know that you have cleared about the send later issue, unfortunately the restart problem is still there.
WHEN DOES IT USUALLY RESTART? AND HOW OFTEN DOES IT HAPPEN NOW?
i asked these because i also have asked one salesman about the restart issue in one of the retail stores at Robinson's (he does not look really reliable for me though) what he said was that nokia 101 is dual sim but dual stand by so it needs to restart in order for the other sim card to receive the message. it restarts to activate the other sim when there is an incoming text, he added..
so to make it simple i'll put it this way(in my understanding)..
you are using sun and globe sims (e.g. you are in the Phils.), you previously sent a message from your globe, automatically the globe is the active one then somebody texted to your sun sim. so the phone itself needs to reboot to activate sun sim and be able to receive and view the text... lol! is that it, really?
anyways, let us know the result of your test with bl-5j, ok.
I have this phone and put 4 songs on a microsd card. The problem is, the phone can't read my mp3 files on my memory card. Opened up the mp3 player with no luck. Anyone there knows this problem and how to fix this? I'm already compelled to bringing it back to the store. Thanks guys.
Already tested the send later message. No problems at all the message was sent.
specifications are good enough, what else a person needs in such a cheaper amount.. right guys?
Sir i want to know that whenever i switch on the radio of my phone its gets vibrated so hard what is solution for this problem plzzz reply me soon
i hav ths phone i restarts bt not always it is prone too saying no sim card sometimes the problm is the battery of ths phone is too weak u need to change it to BL-5j more stronger than 5C :)
i just bought this phone,,overall ok but my phone always restrt,,mybe i hve to chnge my battery,the mp3 sound not too gud but still ok
Unfortunately the BL-5C battery type didn't do the trick for me. I'll consider the BL-5J battery if this will solve my restart problem.
Thanks for this tip
kar, 07 Nov 2011friends can we put our desired song/tune as ringtone and calender tone in this phone??????? pl... moreKar,
YES. you can use an mp3 saved in your memory card as a ringtone, message tone and alarm tone
just a tip though to set your mp3s in the favorites so that in case the phone restarts the tones are not reset to profile defaults.
Jett, 05 Nov 2011hei buddy,
what up! Thanks to those infos..
yeah, same here. looking fw to firmware update... moreYes Jett I'm from Naga City but I'm here in Manila.
I'm testing the send later function of the phone. I was surprised to learn that there's no confirmation message that the message was sent as compared to my 1202.
The message was supposed to be sent 8am that morning but was surprised to know it wasn't perhaps it's my fault or set the wrong date. I'll let you know the results of this test.
For the memory card I think the difference is the capacity and the read write speed on the SDHC types. On the microsd the maximum capacity is 2GB I think but on the SDHC the minimum capacity is 4GB.
I was forced to buy a red one because I had the black serviced and I need a phone that time but still the bugs persisted. That's the first time I sent the black 101 for servicing. 2nd try didn't fare well either so I think a software solution might be the answer.
Yeah I think this one's a best seller I got he red one as the last remaining unit for that store.
friends can we put our desired song/tune as ringtone and calender tone in this phone??????? please reply as soon as possible... thank you :)
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....
