The mobile sw has issues like searching alphabet in a contacts. If i type s in phonebook it never displayed any names. But some times display. There is ambiguity in handling both the network. When ever you in call suddenly both network ll be lost even though i am using airtel in banglore...!!! mobile is handy and nice but some times very irritating. Even though i updated the software but still no change...Nokia fell down in the market. But are not they trying to get up.?? i feel they want to die permanently doing such mistakes i believe..!!!!
I bought this phone about 2 weeks back, it is really very nice handset compare to any mobile. Quality wise sound wise, clarity wise its too good. Once again thanx for NOKIA making this one.

It has almost everything I need. Just its loudspeaker turns on by itself while dialling (not always & we can turn off by pressing its loudspeaker button 3 times) besides it has speaking clock, flashlight, black list "can stop 10 unwanted number", battery back up is enough for two days for normal use, signal strengh is always good but depends on the coverage erea of mobile network. .I am still using this mobile because the newest nokia handset doesn't have flashlight & speaking clock. .this N 101 can write sms fast by using T9 and supports many languages such as: vietnamese, chinese, french, russian, thai, cambodian ,fillipino etc . .
I was very excited when I first saw this model but then I decided to search the internetz about any related problems and issues and I see a lot of people have complains.
I desperately need a very simple Dual Sim mobile phone that can actually have no flaws and yet Nokia isn't giving quality like it used to be.
Restarts happen when the Dual Sim feature is enable. A workaround solution is to disable the 2nd sim if you are not actually using both of them.

But if someone call me via Sim one while I am on call with Sim one : I can hear a beep (alert tone) so I can accept a new call by pressing the receiving button.
Ritesh, 05 Jul 2012Does the call on the sim 2 appears waiting when i am on a call with sim 1 or does it show busy?while u r in call ur second sim network itself disappears (No Tower in sim2) so the persons calling might get no tower else not reacheable else call wont get connect it wil just simply beeps

But its perfect by texting.Its not costly. .it has torch, screening list/black list, mp3, dual sim & dual standby, signal streng is very good, battery can last for two or three days depends on how long we use it. One more point: this handset supports multi-lingual by writing/receiving sms.
just go through the nokia mobile pages in gsm arena...you can see similar looking phones introduced by nokia in late 90's and early 2000...that is nokia 101....volkswagen beetle, fiat 500, etc are classics still in production with more features than earlier....that is what happened to nokia 101...featured an old phone with color display mp3 etc...
These type of nonsence thinking is the reason why people hate nokia...
Nokia's life cycle is in declain stage now...Every thing is against nokia , mostly because of their bad marketing techniques and lack of proper competetive models...
Just compare Nokia 101 with similar featured Samsung e1232....
In India Nokia 101 costs 1200 to 1400 INR based on markets..
Samsung e1232 costs 1500 INR..
Display is similar size..
Samsung jas many extra features like privacy lock for applications, most importantly BLUETOOTH is there... And looks far more better.....
Nokia's rival is samsung , sony, and HTC etc... Not Karbonn, Lava , videocon or any other chinese outsoursed phones...
