Hey, I have had this phone for about three months now and until now I have been over the moon with it. All of a sudden it has started playing up:
1. Buttons along the right hand side didn't work very well (This got fixed)
2. The camera button on the top doesn't work anymore
3. The screen freezes and then goes blank
4. The envelope and the sending message icons will stay along the top until my phone is turned off. Will come back when I send or recieve a message.
5. When trying to go into my outbox a message appears saying 'Operation Failed. Try again'. I try again, same thing
6. When I go to read a new message, it will say that it is an unsupported message type. When I turn my phone off and read it again its fine.
7. It takes a full minute to turn on.
If anyone has any tips or whatever to maybe get some of the problems fixed, it would be much appreciated :D
ok . . . i think this phone is great. im no phone expert but for ease of use its a doddle! personally i haven't experienced any problems with the battery life. On the first day I charged it for 1 hour until it was full and it stayed that way for the next week even when I did make calls . . .
The camera is ok the only problem is that the capture button on the side of the phone can be a little stiff so you have to hold on tight if you dont want to drop it! be warned! The only other thing which I think could be improved is the video recording - it only lets you record for 10 seconds at a time and the quality is nowhere near as good if you compare it to something like a samsung. Apart from that its brill. It slides so easy and is small enough to put in ur pocket. The menu is easy to navigate plus- if you dont like the way it's set out you can change it!!
I got mine in black because I think all these pink phones look a bit tacky and will be out of fashion in a flash. Its a fairly practical colour- only downside is that it the fingerprints.
hi guys.i'm in big trouble:(i can't decide which phone is better:nokia 6131 or nokia 6111;the first one has card slot,wonderful display,but the second one has very good design and camera in landscape mode;i really can't decide.please guys help me!
beautiful, nice, lovely, graceful, ...

I wan to have dis fone soooo bad. I have Nokia 6131 but want to upgrad 2 dis coz features are waaaaay betta. I love the 20mb memory and 1mp camera is just tooo much.
If dis fone was ne betta I'd be locked up Ha HA!

Hi..........I saw the phone and thought it was really cute and I decided to get it. The problems that it has??? POOR battery life - have to charge it every day and a half - try and get a car charger for it or it will leave you @ road. Another thing - it fell out of my hand and that was the end of it - after having it for 1 month. Sent it to repairs and they said it needed a software upgrade. Pretty phone but 2 fragile.........I need a W810....can anybody tell me about that one???
no probs with the phone so far very nice to have in my pocket just that the battery life on it is well to short i seem to have it charging most of the time other than that cool.
generally the phone is ok but the main problem that i have is that the screen tends to become white suddenly and the images get distorted.i sent it for repairs and the same thing happened again...
so really,i wouldnt reccommend this phone cos it seems my friend has the same problem too.
i want this phone it looks good and has great features on it it is exactly what i want and i would like this phone in pink as i have been seeing it everywhere in this colour this phone has many features e.g bluetooth mp3 overall its just a great phone definatley worth buying ....
i agree,this phone has a horrible battery life. only lasts for 1.5 days. i just got it 4 days ago.i charged it for 7 hrs and it still lasted for 1.5 days.
other than battery life, everyting else is fine.
@Radu - Tanks for you are help. I realise my problem I had not didn't have inserted sim card. Now I can SMS today.
Dis fone is orrsom. I luv de bittons. Want to by 2 more ov dese fonez for my b'day :>
Im from Mexico, and this phone is not what I expected. I hope I can change it for the SE W300, that has better reviews and it is almost the same price (at least here).
Reasons: 1.Battery life too short (I´ve tried to do all the tips to save battery, like turning off the phone at night, choosing the save battery options, not using the vibrating alert, changing the red operator to manual)and the battery only lasts 30 hours (1.5 day). I think battery life also depends on the good reception, cause I always have only from 1 to 3 reception bars, not reaching the full bar and that´s because the phone keeps searching for a good reception, and that spends battery. I´ve read there are people that have a battery life of 3 or 4 days, maybe they have a better reception or just lucky.
2.The screen freezes and goes blank
3.It overheats when charging, playing games and recording video or audio.
4.Having the latest firmware wont solve the phone problems(mine is 03.58. These problems are not caused by an old firmware, cause other users have changed to the latest firmware and are having troubles anyway.
Good luck to all of us with this phone.
@pls_help :)))))))))))) You are complety st...ed. Of corse it has SMS. Look at sms settings from your phone and modiffy the service number. You can find the number(that you have to enter) at your client reletions.

you know..i do love that nokia alot ! coz i got every thing i need ;) ! you want my advice..go ahead and get it ;) ! :)
This phone is pants, plain and simple. It isn't what I expected from Mr Nokia. The battery life is rubbish, the navigation controls are flimsy (like the rest of the keys) and frequently I end up with the camera ready when I wanted something completely different. Then there is the problem of people complaining to me that I sound like a robot????
I called the supplier who told me I am stuffed coz I have had it a month. I got it the day before I flew to Lithuania (where I was for 2 weeks) and when I returned I tried the phone and thought perhaps I am just being a clumsy clot. But alas no, I have read the reviews with sadness wishing I had done so before purchasing this phone.
I doesn't do what it says on the tin folks. I am off to Trading Standards to see how I can reject the phone. I can reject a car after 6 months if it is rubbish so I assume my rights are the same with a phone. Anyone out there who can help in regards to this problem? I want another Nokia, but deffo not a 6111.
Good points - It's pink...........
I would really like to go for this model!!! But in 2 minds, whether to wait for Nokia to launch the same model again with a memory slot in this.. I love the looks as has been die hard fan of slide phones. Not that particular about the camera, But the sound quality is good as i have heard. would request Nokia to re launch the model with some extra memory. Would definetly go for it.
I've had this for about a month and I have absouletly no complaints! its a great phone except for it doesn't have a memory card slot and its only 1 megapixel. But everything else is great. Love the look. I recommend it!
