this is an awsome phone only if it had a bigger screen and more memory than it would be even better and it seem to bee unbreakable.......
Yeah this guy I know through his up in the air and hit it with his skateboard! It still works fine!
now i must say this phone is incredible since m a nokia addict.if t had a bigger memory say like 1000fields,a camera, mp4 radio n a bigger screen then nokias 4 th quater sales would be incredible.i guess its also bullet proof ha ha ha
its an incredible phone in its own class if it had a camere with a bigger screen it would be a bomb.thankx nokia
yes people... i forgot to mention... sometimes when i'm in a call there is a screeching noise. When U hold the phone away from U U could still hear it. If the headset is connected I wouldn't hear the screech but the other person still hears it. I've never heard it on loudspeaker, but then again, the screech comes and goes. I don't kno what causes it but this phone has been through some rough times! It would be cost-efficient to buy a new phone rather than fixin it. plus de keypad drives me crazy... but all in all its a grat phone... Hello fellow trinis!
i've had this phone for 2 1/2 years. I love it! Dis phone indestructable. lol. My only problem is the keypad. It takes alot of patience to use this keypad, else U could go mad! Maybe that's why nokia made this phone almost indestructible! The keypad make U wanna throw the phone into a wall and then stamp on it! U gotta press it real hard and sometimes U would select something without meaning to! All kinna madness... But other than the keypad, this phone made for people who live a rugged lifestyle... not the "pretty" people...
Wow!! These fones cant break!!! I've had mine 4 almost 3 years now... It has fallen a gazillion times, been thrown across a room into a wall more than 3 times, been in a pool, and now the power switch has broken off, so it has to be switched on with a screwdriver, but it just wont die. Really is a pity there isn't really a replacement (except 4 the 5140 which i don't like). The fones look was just so different when it came out.
This phone is simply bullet proof!!I have got it wet while diving and dusty and oily while at work and thrown it across a room in anger yet it just keeps going. It is a shame Nokia cannot come up with a suitable replacement. Perhaps they do not want thier phones to last so long in order to boost sales?
absolutly solid i'v had mine for years it's worked perfectly even after been in the pool with me, i find it's a solid performer. and would love nokia to make something as solid as this.
seen this phone in real life and my 1st impression....ugly!
dont wanna bash the fone but in my entire lifetime i stayed in uk and dubai and i only saw this phone with 2ppl uptil now.
Why this cell phone is not available in Brazil???
He seems to be perfect!!! :((((((((((((((((((
At least for me :)
I'm from Trinidad & Tobago and I've had this phone 4 over 2yrs. I've had xcellent service! Never had 2 do repairs til now an that's bcause I accidentally cracked the screen. My friends r tellin me 2 get a new 1, it would b cheaper, but i can't seem 2 part wit it. Also, this model is no longer available in our country.
can anyone tell me why this is 199$? cause i want it but i might as well just get a nice camera phone instead ya know? but this ones SOO cute!
someone email me and lemme know..
ilive in trinidad and tobago and i love this phone so much i made all of my g-friends purchase it, this phone is neat and very reliablewith service, in my location its very hard to get service with mobile phones but with the 5100 i get perfect service.
This phone is not bad when you think about it. My only problem is my radio doesn't work and i am having trouble using my infrared port. Is this feature only compatable with other Nokia 5100's?
i love the nokia 5100. only it is hard to find covers/fascia in the usa. ihave used it with t-mobile and cingular. i have yet to find something that is published on the web site it doesn't do. it works great wet.
Iv have this phone for about 2 years and its been great. its never gone wrong once. the only down side is it hasnt got a camera iv got a detachble one but it doesnt work v. well. if ur lookin for a simple eay to use phone this is perfect!
An excellent phone. Battery takes approx 45min to fully charge from dead and lasts about a week. Very durable and simple to use. a good buy
