n.shuvo, 25 Jan 2012i just want to buy this phone..but i need to know one thing.. In the talking time in a call, ... moreI've used this Nokia 101 for about 1 month. Phone is good in the price segment. It supports local language by doing texting. On the otherhand we can reduce volume of the loudspeaker while talking., its not the same like Nokia 1202. N 101 is really good and economical phone, it has many functions such as : scheduled sms, talking clock, dual sim, flashlight, multi lingual sms ect. .the only problem is : sometime the speaker turn on by itself while calling so we have to press the speaker button 3 times to switch off speaker. Finally I thank to Nokia for releasing this nice handset and hope to see more dual sim models from Nokia.

In the talking time in a call, ... moredear shuvo,
nokia 101 have only one speaker, it is located at the back side.. it's called integrated speaker, if i recall it right. this series from nokia has this, the advantage of this kind of speaker is that it does not easily turn hot even in long times of call. i'll give you a tip, turn your volume to 3-5 bars only (in my case i have it set on 4) then use the back side of the phone during a phone conversation, you'll find it unusual at first but you'll get used to it.. :)
10, 11 and 12 series are one of the best of Nokia's creation.

sorry to say but there is no possible way to update your nokia 101 by your self as this phone does not have usb port.
take it Nokia Care Center (NCC) nearest you and have them do it for you. just make sure you'll give them a call first for you to be sure that they already have the 6.65 version..

exchanging your unit to a new one with the same fw will not make any change. just take it to ncc and have the firmware update :) make sure you will call them first and check if 6.65 vn is available so you will not waste your time.

Every 1 here is telling abt update s and ... moreif you need a cheap, dual sim basic phone, light weight, flash light and mp3 player this is the right one for you. yes, this is a best buy for the price.. the bugs the you are hearing about are normal. the answer for it is firmware update, it's necessary because it fixes bugs. this issue is not only with nokia 101 but with most of the cellphones from different companies. i don't mind it at all, at least i can prove that nokia listened to our complaints and released the new firmware version very soon.. :) good luck! :)

Myself and my friend both using Nokia 101, so far both working fine and looks good. SGD$33.00 worth to buy.
This 101 phone has problems if it's firmware version 06.25. If it has 06.65 phone works perfect. My 101 was 6.25 & troubled. Then I Updated it to 6.65 by Nokia Company under warranty & Now works fine. check firmware version *#0000#

cheap phone i give 101 that.but reliability?ZERO!! phone restart when sending messages and the loud speaker automatically turns on when answering a call..i had the phone replaced with the same model and it still has the same propblems...although i like the plastic build coz its light and not a finger print magnet, nokia phones have been very unreliable,firmware wise.. go for Android if ur planning to buy a phone... sony ericsson is a very reliable phone... a bit expensive but it very worth it.
i just bring my 101 to nokia care center in greenbelt makati philipines on sunday but until now they dont have any update yet they say they replacing the motherboard of the phone but why have to do that is that leagal?
how many days until you get your 101 after updating it?
Above all nokia 101 is good and i wish this cAn support all mp3 files tsk
