th3D, 21 Oct 2011and whats the problem? Dual SIM has always been bad and always will. To be realistic, no one n... moreNo one need dual sim phone?? really? do you know what you're saying? dual sim phones are very useful if you have 2 sims - say 1 personal and 1 for work, also useful for travelers abroad, etc. etc. And in the philippines unlimited calls are allowed only within the same network. So how can 1 user make an unlicall if the one he's calling is on the other network?
Oh and by the way, not all users are in the philippines.
i bought this phone i bought the coral red no restarts i only have 1 sim if u want dual sim phones do not use nokia just use myphone...:) just be gentle in using this..:)
Can any one tell me whether we will get a missed call for SIM 2 if we are on a call on SIM 1 ... Wht does it really mean by dual active ?
the dual sim will not work...only one sim at a time.. the phone keeps disconnecting from network also...
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2011when you activate dual sim,one always losing signal not a very good handset for dual standby and whats the problem? Dual SIM has always been bad and always will. To be realistic, no one need dual sim, its much cheaper to buy load (prepaid credits) that enables you to text for cheap to all networks, than to maintain load on two simcards.
In Philippines it now cost 25 peso for unlimited text to all networks if you have Smart/TnT, thats barely more than half a US dollar. Its like free, so why make ur life miserable wit a dual sim fone?
This is not the 101! My first cellone in 1993 was a Nokia 101, i still have the original box and receipt, i paid more than 1000 US dollars for it, its weight 330 grams. Google it.
Well it was not GSM, the system used was NMT900, a system that originated in scandinavia, and scandinavia is the cradle of modern cellfones, nokia in finland and sony ericsson in sweden and their early handheld GSM fones wer made in norway. The low cost countries were not advanced enough at the time to manufacture such hightech products, thats why it had to be done in hightech highcost countries like Norway and Finland, plus USA and Japan ofcors. Today a 330 gram cellfone dont seem hightech at all with their text onli displays and watever, its weird that its only 18 years ago this was too advanced for most countries in the world to even manufacture, not to mention impossible to engineer, even for south korea who is now becoming #1 in cellfones.

Highbros, 20 Oct 2011I just bought the red one and there is no such problem like restart. I love d phoneThat's what I though because my girlfriend and her sister got the red ones and encountered no problems. But I think it's not safe to assume that all red 101's are problem free.
I hate it the signal will drop again and again and voice some time it's not hearing properly and battery back up is not good pls make a solution for it
i purchased the phone 2 days ago and so far no restart problems.. phone is good.. my only comment is that S30 is so basic, why?:
1. cannot create folder to save messages from inbox.. all messeges can only be viewed on the inbox or draft folder.
2. speaker volume is weak during voice calls even u turn the volume control to max (unless u use the loud speaker)
3. voice calls are unclear and difficult to understand (maybe because of very basic phone)
overall phone is good but i recommend that future buyer should consider the c2-00 or c2-03 because those are S40 nokia phones..
I just bought the red one and there is no such problem like restart. I love d phone
Here's another restart problem encountered.
The phone restarts by itself while in Silent mode. I used to encounter restarts while sending, composing, opening a message or unlocking the keypad but this one is happening by itself.
I really need to get this phone serviced.

what is the price ? i purchased yesterday @Rs.1600/-.That Shop owner suggested me its good.But here negative comments. it automatically switched off in this morning .i confused as i didn't switch off
I hate it the signal will drop again and again then i take it in nokia care for the "problems" then 2days later i got it back 1day after i get it the signal droped again and again ang restart again and again nokia pls make a solution for it
if u still experience restarts on this phone swap ur battery to BL-5C 1400 mah more powerful or BL-5J a stroong one to and avoid hard messaging it shakes the battery... ok... be gentle in using this phone and avoid always playing games it affects the battery.. if u want to store music use a mem. card reader..:)
Nokia 101 is great budget phone.
Nice keypad, dual-sim features - dual standby.
The only problem is when you call (either sim1 or sim2) is automatically converted to Loudspeaker but not always, just annoying sometimes.
Battery is good enough for BL-5CB but much better if BL-5C 1020mAh.
Overall. This is a good phone.
