I got this phone in December 2006 for my birthday. At the start i was overwhelmed with joy about this phone, but 7 months down the line I HATE IT SO MUCH. I first started experiencing problems about a month or two ago, when the screen would go white and fade and turn itself off, or it would freeze. Then you would have to reset all your settings e.g. ringtone etc. Also the appearance of this phone is not good, as it is really quite thick and some of the keys stick down so i can't text. And when the keys do work when i text the letter n for example not on predictive text it'll sometimes give two m's instead. As this was a birthday present and i had whined about getting this phone i cannot get a new one, unless i buy one myself however it isnt very helpful when you have no money. The picture quality isnt that good and the memory is horrific. it can only hold about 3 photos before i move them into the recieved files folder to get more space. There seems to be more memory in that folder than anywhere else on this phone! Overall i am NOT satisfied, and my family and friends know this as i have been moaning about it so much. And what with all these new phones such as the LG Shine coming out it makes me realise how disappointing this phone is.
i love it but i think the fact that it doesn't have a memory card stinks! i like the size, colour and speed
well i dont know what you lot have been doing to your 6111. as mine is fine and my mate has had it over 1 year and still no problems..
I've never had any problems with this model - no freeze-ups, blank screens, nothing. I'm just mad that the memory's only 20MB. But then again, I do have an iPod.
My Bestfriend got this phone for her birthday in January. She's had endless amount of problems, she had to send it back two weeks after buying the phone. She & I traded phones for 2 weeks(She had her number put on my RAZR and my number put on the Nokia 6111) and we traded phone for 2/3 weeks. When we first traded I loved the design of the phone, but once i had the phone I hated it and it wasnt even mine! During those 2/3 weeks we traded phones, the thing would never respond, it wouldn't light up or anything when i slid it open, the screen nor the buttons.The times it did work the screen was just turn white at times and I'd have to reset the phone. The phone would freeze constantly, and sometimes the menu wouldn't respond. I was so glad to get my RAZR back.
hi all well after reading all your bad comments about this phone i was not going to buy it, but still went to have a look at it. and i bought it, ok its not got a big memory but its very neat, well done nokia this is really lovley...
HI all this is the worst nokia fone I had ever seen!! this is a piece of crap ??I bought it from 1 year and I fixed it like 6 times I actually paid money on fixing iot more than its cost!! I don't recommand u of buying it at all
If God was real, he would have never allowed this phone to be released.
Only buy it if your favourite screen saver is 'Insert SIM'.
i bought this fone 8mths ago and i just discvered last month that when i slide it open or close, the screen goes blank and i have to keep sliding to get it back....now i dont get to see the caller ID and i canot read ny text messages or send text to anyone. I thought it was a really cool phone, but i am so dissappointed. Also the memory to record songs is too small,and i cant download any of my pictures into my laptop. I dont think i will be buying anymore sliding phones from nokia, it is just a waste of money and time.
I got this phone in October '06 and had to get a replacement in January '07, then again in April, again in May + then 2 days later I had to go back to the shop!
This is possibly the worst phone I've ever encountered.
It switched off whenever it felt like it, wouldn't allow me to send text messages, ended calls, froze up......I can't even remeber what else.
Only one of the four mobile networks in Ireland sold this, which just proves that problems were anticipated - personally I think Nokia should never had put it on the market!!!!
please can someone tell me how big the writing is when you do an sms thanks....jane
i like this phone a lot!!!!!!!(although ive only had it for 5 hours). So far it rox!!!!
hi all i am going to buy this mobile very soon but i whould like to ask anyone who can ans about the writing in sms, is it small writing i have a nokia 6600 and its very small. thanks you can ans to firstname.lastname@example.org thanks to you all this is a great web site to check about mobiles well done to the owner
I think this cell phone is very cute. After ordering this phone i got this site and read all these bad comments. I hope that this is not true because i would be really mad at myself for getting this phone so expensive and it would be crap. By the way wat is meant by shared memory?
Please, someone who has one like this one tell me more bout this phone
I also forgot to say, I've dropped my fone many times so it's badly scratched :( and the flash on the phone doesn't work anymore. Otherwise it's good.
I've had this phone since late December and haven't had anything wrong with it except for one thing. Sometimes when I'm writing text messages or playing a game it'll freeze and eventually screen goes white & goes off. It can be annoying but it seems to have settled down at the moment which is ok for now. I read on here don't use this phone for longer than 6 months. Well I've had it nearly 7 and seems to work good usually :) The other annoying thing is you can't change the sim card? I bought it with a tesco mobile so that might be why but otherwise it'sgood :)
To arrow: for louder ringtones on the right mobile side there are - button & + button, if u want more louder ringtones u press the + button
