alansm, your is a well known problem of this phone.
Some people resolved it by taking off the personal picture set as desktop.
Just try that way! ;)
Well, my friend just bought this phone a week ago.
Here is a serious problem he encountered. While trying to dial up a local telephone number that start with 'zero' e.g 02-xxxxxxx,
the '0' zero keypad will activated the Web Service. (It's actually a shortcut key). Normally, this feature should only be activated when the user press & hold the key.
Unfortunately for Nokia 6111, even the slightest press will cut straight to Web Service. No way to go around the problem. This could be a firmware error or else; could be a fatal problem. Please let me know if this is only a one off probelm in my friend phone. Thank you:(
i have been reading all ur comments about this fone and it really puts me off, and now finking twice about geting it. wud any1 kno if the white screen and d ribbon being torn knos if nokia is fixing it? cos i lyk this fone
Well, I've waited this AWSOME phone for months, since I first saw it in early 2005.
For Xmas I got it has a present, and started to use it on Dec 26.
In one day of massive use, the screen turned blank several times.
I brought it back to the shop, they're going to change it with a new one. Lesshope the new one is better, even if I fear it's a natural bug of this phone.
Ev'ryone interested in Nokia 6111, this is a Great cellular, but my opinion is to wait before buying it for some months, i.e. the time the finnish brand will need to fix this bug.
I got the 6111 a couple of weeks ago and haven't had any problems with white screen or anything like - but - does anyone else get a clicking noise from the keypad when using the zoom on the video? It's driving me mad and makes the phone feel cheap.
i reaaaaaaaallly want this phone but ive heard alot about the ribbon tearing and the screen going blank, whos phone has NOT done this? I am hoping to buy it 1st Jan but im worried about this... HELP!
I got a nokia 6111 for christmas and was so happy because this is such a wonderful phone.
There's only one problem i'm having. Sometimes when i want to go into a certain
application, say for instance, into messages
or gallery or whatever my screen goes blank.
And throughs me out, to start again.I have this phone now for only few days, is this normal?
My son bought the Nokia 6111 on Ebay about two weeks ago. On December 23rd the slider mechanism started making a clicking type noise and the screen went white. Since we bought it off Ebay there was no warranty, so we took the phone apart. The connecting ribbon was torn, it looked like the spring may have torn the ribbon. Does anyone know where we can buy a new ribbon? We would like to fix the phone.
i have this phone, it is great! there is only one small problem...when u have a photo as a wallpaper when u press 0 it takes u straight to the internet, it is a bit annoying! does anyone no if there's a way to fix this?
nooo.. this phone ain't just for women. that is unless you got the pink version..
for UKers I had a go on the nokia 6111 in the link and the phone was really nice so much better than the dummy models that are in the shopsat the moment :D Really like it think Im gonna get it but really have no money to get it at the moment. :(
Are there also users who are happy with their 6111 and have no probs?
Still got 2 questions:
- how is the speaker volume? Some say loud enough some say very low...
- Is it available in Silver Grey?
i have 2 friends who bought the phone about a week ago. BOTH of them said the phone is wonderful with excellent functions & quality but rather low price.
but when i look around the net, i see quite a number of negative comments. it's really weird as it seems like people are talking about 2 different models.
Just got the phone for about 5 days. The screen went white/blank for 4 times at least. It just hung there for abt 5-8 secs then it pops back to the main screen. Each time this happens, a warning with "Check Connection Setting" flashes across the screen. Also it rebooted on it's own twice. The lid on top that conceal the charging + ear piece socket is quite a hassle to handle & it does not close up nicely. The sliding mechanism of the phone feels somewhat loosen after 3 days of usage. I'm beginning to worry that it might fall apart soon. Besides all the above problems, all other features of this phone's alright. I give this phone a 4.5/10 rating.
hello! I am an Italian young lady. The nokia 6111 has just come out in Italy. I find it really "attractive" but I woud like to know how long does the battery last, and if the audio is good..these are the two most important qualities I look for on o a phone, i do not care about the quality of the camera etc etc...but I just want to hear the other person on the phone loud and clear when I am speaking..after all that is what phones are for.
thanx and Merry X-mas!!!
i've seen on some peoples comments that say this phone has no CARD SLOT. like the actually phone card? or they meant MEMORY card slot? =/
who says the keypad isn't backlid? see photos for yourself!
this phone rocks. what a beauty man. haven't had any problems bout the phone hanging so far. trust your instincts man. go get it!!!
I bought the phone 2 weeks ago and already it hung a few times while trying to send SMS. Also, when sending sms to many people, while adding the contacts halfway through, it just went blank and a few seconds later, it went to the main menu and I had to compose the SMS and resend again. Sometimes while navigating to other options, the phone would just go blank and restart itself. This has never happened to my former Nokia 6230. The battery goes flat quite fast too. I am disappointed with this phone.
