One of the most durable phones I have ever used.It was the second mobile that I have owned and it is still going nearly 10 years later. Call quality is just amazing even by todays standards and the BPS-2 slim battery that I have fitted courtesy of Ebay lasts around a week on standby. It was never intended as a texting phone first and foremost, but as a reliable telephone that is car kit and headset friendly, it is truely an awesome tool and they really dont make 'em like it any more. I defy todays all singing Nokias to be still standing in 10 years time !!!
10 years and still going strong... it came with my mercedes (no prank, C-class dealer carkit) and they both keep on going!
Anonymous, 19 Aug 2007great phone!but had this problem, the cover is damaged and so the LCD fades and automatically ... moreGoogle search around - there are companies that sell replacement screens. Otherwise buy a second hand phone and do it yourself - it just slots in - I did it with mine.
I've owned mine for ten years - even dropped it in a hot cup of tea by accident once - took it to bits, dried it out no problem - bet you can't do that with the new ones! Very nearly indestructible! Why follow fashio with a new phone every five minutes when you can be fashionably "Retro" :)
I really love this cellphone.. Although there are some new brands of nokia where released.. I still have my Nokia 6150. Its 10 years and still working..
I started my Nokia 6150 (I used it 2 yrs ago) and when i make a phone call I dont seem to hear anything or when somebody calls me, I also dont hear anything. Everything else works fine. And all the game sounds and ringtones I can hear. Help please!
Fine phone. If you want a phone that just works, then just go and get the Nokia 6150!
i had this phone since 1999 till present (2007). has been dropped so many times and still is working. the most durable and reliable phone ever. not much feature but just use the basic: messaging, call & alarm clock :)
great phone!but had this problem, the cover is damaged and so the LCD fades and automatically switches off. is there any chance for me to repair it? i feel comfortable using this than any other modern phones today
This was my first phone.
I still have it.
I cannot power it on anymore
This used to be the ultimate business workhorse. Virtually unbreakable with excellent battery life and sound quality. Since moving out of Europe meant different frequencies, I left it at home. Otherwise, I'd be proud to show it around to all who complain about their latest tech stuff (and it's mid-2007 now).
This is the first ever cell phone i hv bought,i still have with myself and its still working,its quite awesome,since then i m buying only nokia brand phone
LOL my grandma is using this phone.That fact makes me laugh a bit.HA HA HA
Well good phone no doubt (for people of her age) she says that it is the only phone in which she can see buttons and numbers.
1. This tool is good for talking.
2. I´ve solved THIS displayproblem...
3. Open the phone(carefully) and put bit of paper between "metalhold" of the LCD display... and your´s screen w´be ok
So happy to see this site about this great cellphone.
I've had one for several years now - even used it everyday, when working as a truckdriver! It's the best!
Recently, I bought a new phone - a Nokia 5140i; but I had to get rid of it again... It was much to slow to use because of all those menues, - and also the keys (the whole phone) was much too small for me...
I have one small problem though: When I'm not using the phone, the display tends to fade somewhat. The text comes back, when I press slightly beyound the display. Anyone who knows, what is causing this problem?
I was suprised to hear from one of my client's that he is using this phone he said it work's like a bomb and he is happy with it.....I sold mine many years ago but sorry that I did because I am not happy with these new phones they fo-ever going in for repairs.
