this phone is good in fact it is the most affordable music dual sim phone and even durable but it experience restart so heres a tip: use BL-5C battery or BL-5J for avoiding restarts cause the battery that nokia chooserd for this phone is just for uncolored symbian phones which cant support the version of this phone so... change ur battery and enjoy..:)
nookey, 12 Oct 2011one question does it come with a USB port!? I am asking coz the specs says NO and without a U... moreusb slot is not there.., u have to use ur memory card with Card Reader to upload songs.
one friend bought Nokia 101, says that he cannot find out which sim he used when navigating across his call logs.
JROY, 15 Oct 2011Can a friend tell me wheather sound/call recording can be done in this Nokia 101 phone?No.., sound and voice recording is not possible in Nokia 101..., as it is s30 series mobile phone.
joo, 15 Oct 2011Howmany message may send one time?one at a time, let's say for example you a message on both sim and you want to reply simply select the sim you want to use to reply to ur message either sim_1 or sim_2.
in other words it can receive a message at the same time but u can't reply at the same time at both sims.
Can a friend tell me wheather sound/call recording can be done in this Nokia 101 phone?
I got this fone a week ago.n believe me it is the best nokia phone in this price range.no prob at all.so dun be confused and just go for it.
S30FanBoy, 14 Oct 2011Difference between X1-01 and 101 is the design: X1-01 is more shinny feeling, Dedicated Music ... morethank you so much for the practical explanation. i have 5233 for music so i am surely going to buy 101. would you please share the best price i can get it?
Have bought this cell phone yesterday. It is a very nice cell phone considering its price. The features are very different from C1 and other dual-standby models.
Just to clear the confusion, it can be configured to work both as 'dual-standby' and 'dual-active' To me this is a great feature for such low-end device with a relatively cheaper price.
-Excellent sound quality
-Vivid user interface
-When used alongwith memroy card, the phone is prone to restarts, esp. during messaging, I have experienced it twice and it is only my 2nd day.
-You can receive calls on both sims, but once you have got call - say on SIM1, during the call SIM2 will be offline (but considering the price, you can't complain)
So all in all I'll give it 9/10
to dull the screen brigtness
do following steps
menu-->settings-->display setting-->colour sceme-->left key 4-5 times and then down akey again 3-4 times left key --> save or done
got this fone 2 days ago for the price of 1,490php. i got the red one coz a lot of people likes the black one, i want to be unique haha, i also bought microSD card and transfer mp3 files and mp3 ringtones. for my convenient i created separate folder in the card for mp3's and ringtones. so far i don't have any problem with this phone, great buy and worth the money i spend.
Nikita, 13 Oct 2011please suggest me which to buy between x1-01 & 101. x1-01 is buggy but lots of people say ... moreDifference between X1-01 and 101 is the design: X1-01 is more shinny feeling, Dedicated Music play Keys: X1-01 has which 101 doesn't, Battery: BL-5J 1320mAh vs BL-5C 1020mAh. My suggestion is if you don't listen to Music 3-4 hours a day, 101 is ok for the price is less. Otherwise, you can spend more to get X1-01.
Mauragon, 12 Oct 2011Carlo, try re-formatting the card. The customer rep from Nokia Care said that the restarts may... moreyea mine too also having a lot of restarts and when it restarts my settings is back like restore factory settings... and will says (No SimCard) in sim1...
when it comes to memory card i dont get it i think they are wrong because mine has no memory card inserted but it still restarts a lot.. and also my Memorycard ive done re-formatting it. still the same LOL!
Jett, 12 Oct 2011no worries about this bugs
just wait for the firmware update..
by the way, users facing such... moreyes Jett. i will,, im experiencing a lot of restarts.. in idle mode, whenn reading messages/typing messages, playing music and whatsoever.
my friend and two cousins also bought nokia 101 when they saw mine they are easily attracted and amazed on my phone. but them they are not having problems like mine. i might say they are lucky and im the unlucky one. hahaha.
but i still recommend the nokia 101. not all phones have defect guys.. wish you were lucky :) or if not go to Nokia Care......
kev, 12 Oct 2011where is the hello store located? its only 1,430php?Hello store at SM Mall of Asia. But I'm having second thoughts of buying there since I get buggy phones from them since my 1202.
Better buy it somewhere else even a bit expensive but having a bug free phone is sure worth the extra pesos spent.
i have this phone, no any problems at all no restart,shutdown,voiceleakage or loudspeaker problem. It works perfectly nice speaker and easy to use it worths its price and one thing more when both of the sims are switched on it shortens the battery life if both sims are used its battery is not good enough.
