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.
Absolutely a good experience in case of dual sim mobile phones.Its the best selection for our pockets fulfillng the demand in cheap way.
if compare the battery..better choose nokia x1-01 with 1320mAh..others features are quite similar with both have dual sim card function too
cplover, 16 Oct 2011this phone is good in fact it is the most affordable music dual sim phone and even durable but... moreI think it has little to do with the battery type except just to extend the time between charges. I already changed the battery type with BL-5C but the phone still restarts. The worst was when it totally shut down. I'll have this one sent for level 3 service. I just hope they change the main board altogether.
Anybody here with red 101s experiencing problems? I think the red ones are ok.
JROY, 15 Oct 2011Can a friend tell me wheather sound/call recording can be done in this Nokia 101 phone?No, there is no function for it in Nokia 101

x1-01 dont have it option. only next and previos.
it is important for me
this phone is good in fact it is the most affordable music dual sim phone and even durable but it experience restart so heres a tip: use BL-5C battery or BL-5J for avoiding restarts cause the battery that nokia chooserd for this phone is just for uncolored symbian phones which cant support the version of this phone so... change ur battery and enjoy..:)
nookey, 12 Oct 2011one question does it come with a USB port!? I am asking coz the specs says NO and without a U... moreusb slot is not there.., u have to use ur memory card with Card Reader to upload songs.
one friend bought Nokia 101, says that he cannot find out which sim he used when navigating across his call logs.
JROY, 15 Oct 2011Can a friend tell me wheather sound/call recording can be done in this Nokia 101 phone?No.., sound and voice recording is not possible in Nokia 101..., as it is s30 series mobile phone.
joo, 15 Oct 2011Howmany message may send one time?one at a time, let's say for example you a message on both sim and you want to reply simply select the sim you want to use to reply to ur message either sim_1 or sim_2.
in other words it can receive a message at the same time but u can't reply at the same time at both sims.
Can a friend tell me wheather sound/call recording can be done in this Nokia 101 phone?
I got this fone a week ago.n believe me it is the best nokia phone in this price range.no prob at all.so dun be confused and just go for it.
S30FanBoy, 14 Oct 2011Difference between X1-01 and 101 is the design: X1-01 is more shinny feeling, Dedicated Music ... morethank you so much for the practical explanation. i have 5233 for music so i am surely going to buy 101. would you please share the best price i can get it?
Have bought this cell phone yesterday. It is a very nice cell phone considering its price. The features are very different from C1 and other dual-standby models.
Just to clear the confusion, it can be configured to work both as 'dual-standby' and 'dual-active' To me this is a great feature for such low-end device with a relatively cheaper price.
-Excellent sound quality
-Vivid user interface
-When used alongwith memroy card, the phone is prone to restarts, esp. during messaging, I have experienced it twice and it is only my 2nd day.
-You can receive calls on both sims, but once you have got call - say on SIM1, during the call SIM2 will be offline (but considering the price, you can't complain)
So all in all I'll give it 9/10
to dull the screen brigtness
do following steps
menu-->settings-->display setting-->colour sceme-->left key 4-5 times and then down akey again 3-4 times left key --> save or done
