I was really looking forward to using my new 6111, but after my third handset in a week, I am now giving up and looking at changing to a competlely different phone. Each handset has had a different fault, the first with the hands free connector damaged, the second an electrical problem with the keypad and the final phone I am about to return is just autmatically switching itself off and unable to receive calls.
i bought 6111 fro about 2 wiks. and i am a bit disappointed!!! it's very slow when opening the images.when i browse games for me to download, it will turn off and on.
i don't think it's normal. it's battery life is just for 1 day only. even if i'm not using it, the battery will decrease. i love the styles and all it's fun stuffs but not the whole package. i'ts maintenance is not good.
when you'll browse on the internet its features, MP3 is not available. and im wondering why mine has it. whew!
i love the flash effevt of this phone but not the quality of the camera as well as the video. do u think this phone is still good for u?? it's ur decision if u will still buy this. anyone may send their opinions w/ regards to what i've posted. and may also tell me some good qualities of this phone. thank u!
My friend was just like you, going through the same dillema and he finally bought it. And unfortunately he was not lucky and now the phone is dead becoz of the white screen peoblem. He was happy for week, just like some people here saying they got the phone and its working fine.
My point is it's a risk. You gotta be lucky to have no problem. So I wont recommend this phone. In my opinion, you should look for something else. Its a cute phone, but its sad that it has so many peoblems.
Its upto you.

Thanks 4 your replies Lexy and JV, I am still in 2 minds about purchasing this phone now, but as yet there is no other phone I would want other than this one anyway! If I do go ahead with my purchase I will be sure to ask in the shop about problems with the phone! (I just hope they don't let to make a sale) Lexy, where I am, I would have 2 pay £180 for this phone, u?
should i buy the 6111 or 6101 nokia phone?i am in a complete dilemia !! i saw a lot of bad comments on the two phones.. i wonder if the text messaging sysetem is good or not...
message details are availible just click on 'message details'while in the message to find out time etc...
in addition to my other comments i wont be suprised if my fone dones not last till the warranty expires(8 months to go)im pritty clumsy and am known for dropping it(only once in the first 4 months)i am pritty sure i wouldn't buy another!
what would you pay for a new nokia 6111 where you are chaz?
This is for Chaz. I got the phone about a month ago after they said all the software problems were now fixed. Well guess again, 2weeks after I got it there was a software problem. Bascially whenever I tried to get to my phone book (names and numbers etc) my phone would switch on and off. If you do get this phone make sure you ask about the software problems. I love this phone but it's been a realy pain as well.
just pick up the 6110, looks very cute,sleek and very beautiful infact i never knew is this beautiful, i have used it and am recommending it for everybody...............u'll just like it
hiya everyone. can anyone tell me how to show the time and date of text messages if it's possible? thanx :D
I know there have been alot of faults with this phone, but the people complaing all seem 2 have purchased their phones last year december or something. Can any who has purchased the phone last month or this month please tell me if they too are have problems with their phone! I BEG U, PLEASE SOME1 ANSWER THIS POST, because I badly want to buy this phone, but should I chance it, considering all the bad reviews????
I bought my Nokia 6111 at the beginning of December. I had ultimate enjoyment with the phone. It is sleek, stylish and practical. I enjoyed the clarity with the bluetooth link-up. Most of the features were just what an avid phone user would ask for. There was only one feature that I was a little bit disappointed with and that was the phonebook. Having experienced the phonebook of the 6670 (my previous phone), i expected a little more from the 6111.
However all the enjoyment was shortlived as the phone seems to have one fundamantal problem and that is sturdiness. After only three (3) months, I lost the use of the phone, because the ribbon which connects the front and back sections of the phone became damaged. This is despite limited sliding owing to the fact that I primarily used my bluetooth headset.
The further horror is thatI am not able to obtain a replacement ribbon. I AM EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!!!
this phone is a complete dissapointment but at least i got it free (i was a journalist and received it free at the launch). 3 weeks after i received it, it completely died on me! i also had battery problems (it'd last 1 day at most -low usage-) but after i chanrged it again for about 12 hours, it lasted about 3 days or so. I'm annoyed because I sold my old mobile very cheaply (as I moved overseas) and now I've to buy a new one (and phones in Europe are twice as expensive...) .. I can't get it fixed without paying as my warranty isn't valid in europe... the crappiest phone of all time..all looks and zero substance
Thankyou JV, so i assume all the problems have been fixed by Nokia now then? Or maybe you have just been lucky and purchased one without any faults? Is it also true that the name and time of a received text message dont show up?
ive owned this model of phone for some months now and im completely happy with my purchase.no faults as yet the battery has gotten better with age,like alot of the new models comeing out treat this particular phone with a great deal of care.with ref to ppl saying that the slide mech is faulty,go easy with it.btw the golf game is awesome when you consider i can hardly hit the ball for real!
hello, i have read alot of the posts dating back 2 january, and have noticed that over half of you are complaning about faults. has any1 bought the phone recently? Cos i am assuming all the faults would have been fixed by Nokia now? Cosidering its been months since the phone was out, PLEASE some1 answer my post, because i really wanted 2 buy this phone and now have 2 reconsider because of all the complaints its had! Should i buy it or not?
