This is not the 101! My first cellone in 1993 was a Nokia 101, i still have the original box and receipt, i paid more than 1000 US dollars for it, its weight 330 grams. Google it.
Well it was not GSM, the system used was NMT900, a system that originated in scandinavia, and scandinavia is the cradle of modern cellfones, nokia in finland and sony ericsson in sweden and their early handheld GSM fones wer made in norway. The low cost countries were not advanced enough at the time to manufacture such hightech products, thats why it had to be done in hightech highcost countries like Norway and Finland, plus USA and Japan ofcors. Today a 330 gram cellfone dont seem hightech at all with their text onli displays and watever, its weird that its only 18 years ago this was too advanced for most countries in the world to even manufacture, not to mention impossible to engineer, even for south korea who is now becoming #1 in cellfones.
when you activate dual sim,one always losing signal not a very good handset for dual standby
Highbros, 20 Oct 2011I just bought the red one and there is no such problem like restart. I love d phoneThat's what I though because my girlfriend and her sister got the red ones and encountered no problems. But I think it's not safe to assume that all red 101's are problem free.
I hate it the signal will drop again and again and voice some time it's not hearing properly and battery back up is not good pls make a solution for it
i purchased the phone 2 days ago and so far no restart problems.. phone is good.. my only comment is that S30 is so basic, why?:
1. cannot create folder to save messages from inbox.. all messeges can only be viewed on the inbox or draft folder.
2. speaker volume is weak during voice calls even u turn the volume control to max (unless u use the loud speaker)
3. voice calls are unclear and difficult to understand (maybe because of very basic phone)
overall phone is good but i recommend that future buyer should consider the c2-00 or c2-03 because those are S40 nokia phones..
I just bought the red one and there is no such problem like restart. I love d phone
Here's another restart problem encountered.
The phone restarts by itself while in Silent mode. I used to encounter restarts while sending, composing, opening a message or unlocking the keypad but this one is happening by itself.
I really need to get this phone serviced.

if u still experience restarts on this phone swap ur battery to BL-5C 1400 mah more powerful or BL-5J a stroong one to and avoid hard messaging it shakes the battery... ok... be gentle in using this phone and avoid always playing games it affects the battery.. if u want to store music use a mem. card reader..:)
Nokia 101 is great budget phone.
Nice keypad, dual-sim features - dual standby.
The only problem is when you call (either sim1 or sim2) is automatically converted to Loudspeaker but not always, just annoying sometimes.
Battery is good enough for BL-5CB but much better if BL-5C 1020mAh.
Overall. This is a good phone.
Absolutely a good experience in case of dual sim mobile phones.Its the best selection for our pockets fulfillng the demand in cheap way.
if compare the battery..better choose nokia x1-01 with 1320mAh..others features are quite similar with both have dual sim card function too
cplover, 16 Oct 2011this phone is good in fact it is the most affordable music dual sim phone and even durable but... moreI think it has little to do with the battery type except just to extend the time between charges. I already changed the battery type with BL-5C but the phone still restarts. The worst was when it totally shut down. I'll have this one sent for level 3 service. I just hope they change the main board altogether.
Anybody here with red 101s experiencing problems? I think the red ones are ok.
JROY, 15 Oct 2011Can a friend tell me wheather sound/call recording can be done in this Nokia 101 phone?No, there is no function for it in Nokia 101
