It does what it says, great call and sms. Awesome battery life, i think it could last a week or more, as i just got this phone recently. but note that i've saw some review stating that the early batch of the phone which came with the frimware version 6.30 or those pre v6.65 version are having auto restart problem and auto activation of loundspeaker during call (press *#0000# to check), but as stated you can updated to the latest firmware by going to the nearest Nokia Care Centre, but you have to check with them whether they have the update or not. Other than that this phone is great, in terms of keypad and physical design.UI wise the phone is also pretty pratical with features such as calender and torchlight right at your finger tips. Pretty good call quality and responsive UI and of course the awesome battery life. using this phone as a backup phone for my samsung android phone, just perfect. Does what it says. for this kinda phone you just dont expect data support such as GPRS, EDGE or even 3G, forget about bluetooth, is just not made in mind for that kinda purpose. if you want that kinda feature this is just not the phone for you. The only thing i hope it has is a micro usb port as the standard for charging port has been change the the universal micro usb and data transfer
I had SIM1 signal lost (recovered only after phone reset) and intermittent loud speaker automatic activation. I sent my phone to Nokia care in Hanoi for firmware upgrade to 6.65 this morning. Now SIM1 signal lost is automatically recovered. Hope that loud speaker works well either. So go for 6.65 fw upgrade guys.
is the voice leakage fixed by software update? Is this phone better than nokia x1-01?
It's Not Java Applicable. and No way to Browse/manage files of the memory card
Hi I purchased 15 days back.
No DualStand by.
Poor battary back up.(Up to 1 day even though i used bl-5b 1020mah 3.7v)
While using the mobile eco sound will came, after resetting the phone i will comes to normal otherwise eco sound is occuring while using the mobile.
that's how it should be.. this is what we get from a very very cheap phone. :)
after 6.65's release i don't have anything against my 101/nokia..
btw, there are other phones out there that can satisfy the need, which are more expensive of course. :D
h0rhe, 12 Feb 2012I don't like it when using headset, the phone speaker will sound at the same time when receivi... moreI think it should be like that. Its a sound alert.
Lets say you are listening to the radio in loudspeaker mode. You put the mobile in your bed or in your table & you are a meter or more away from your phone. How would you know when someboday text or call you if the loudspeaker is deactivated? (unless of course the vibrator alert is on).
I have this phone also. I also have n70 & even if the headset is connected to the phone, the mobile alert me thru the phone speaker when there is an incoming calls or sms.
BTW, re this N101, i really hate the loudspeaker being automatically activated when I make or receive calls, it really annoys me. & the battery only lasts for 2 days with minimal usage.
AnonD-2368, 06 Feb 2012with version .65? are you sure?
problems like?I don't like it when using headset, the phone speaker will sound at the same time when receiving call/text. Only they suggested to me is that I must use profile SILENT which is useless while I'm using headset. ^_^
