hello to all. please suggest me which to buy between x1-01 & 101. x1-01 is buggy but lots of people say bugs are out by 2nd fw update. 101 is far less buggish but i am doubtful about the battery. i own a 5233 so i know the power of bl-5j of x1-01. bl-5c isn't that bad, but i think it will fall apart in dual sim as the requirement is double here.

please only users of these phones help.
i will buy one of thsese before diwali. thanks in advance.

Have a fun :-)

one question
does it come with a USB port!? I am asking coz the specs says NO and without a USB port the card slot is meaningless...

I did re-format my Kingston 2GB microsd card also bought from CDRKing. I still encounter restarts. Maybe I'll just wait for a firmware update since it would still be under warranty I just hope by the time the update is released my phone would still be under warranty.

The cheapest I know so far was in Hello for Php 1,430 cash but I got it for Php 1,500 because I charged it to my credit card. I just hope you'd get a good unit.

I have experimented a bit on the ringing and message alert tones because mine is reset to profile settings when the phone restarts. What I did was put the mp3 files for ringing and message alert tones on the favorites and so far the tones were not reset to profile or default settings.

I also noticed that the coral red 101's doesn't experience restarts? Mine is the black one. Can I confirm to anyone of you guys that the black 101's are prone to restarts?

i currently use 1280 as my primary phone though i also have 5530(serves as my music player and camera).

now, to answer your query. 1280 has integrated speaker, which you can find at the back side of the unit. one good thing i find in it is that it doesn't turn hot even though i talk for long period of time.

one technique that i can share with you during a phone conversation is to lower the volume (as for me i have it lowered to level 3 or 4 only) and use the back side of the phone. sounds not normal but it really works, and i can say it really is an advantage..having an integrated speaker.

good luck!

when your call suddenly change to loudspeaker u should click loudspeaker and then it will say loudspeaker activated and click to handset.. that's it

and when you'll encounter Restart and after that your sim.no1 will have no simcard just restart your phone.

in regarding to the MicroSD card.. i had an experimentation bout my problem regarding ..NO MUSIC FILES.. when i will search to music..,, i have tried 1GB MicroSD and 4GB MicroSD and 4GB MicroSDHC and it works perfectly..

here in the philippines there are so called CDR King shop. its generic because of low prices and i had tried that. 1GB,2GB,4GB CDR king microSD and works perfectly..

my 2GB MicroSD from Nokia is not working properly here in my nokia 101 ( idont know why )

there are times that my phone would restart maybe in a day it will restart 10x ,, and will have my sim no.1 (no simcard says)

i guess not all the unit is defective. because, my cousin has bought this same kind of phone.. and he's not facing any problem.. also my friend.. my bad i think im jinx LOL..

i will report this to nokia customer care center to be fix...

REMEMBER: NOT ALL PHONE HAS DEFECT.. wish you are lucky :)

> In reply to itsmef96 @ 2011-10-11 07:37 from Kgfp - click to readWithout the restart and switch to loudspeaker bug yes I'd recommend this phone. It's pretty much like gambling because there's a chance you'd get a defective unit so have it replaced or serviced immediately. For its features without the bugs mentioned it's a pretty good phone for its price.
