Just bought the "101" because i broke my previous 2sim mobile - again. What I was looking for : basic functions, no-nonsense, no extra's that i don't use anyway. I just want to phone + text message. Internet i do at home, for pictures/video I use a dedicated camera and.. I'm in the habit of losing my mobiles, crushing them accidently, letting them fall a few times a day, dropping them in the water on boat trips, spilling drinks over it, etc.. So i want it to be cheap, but do the basic job.
I almost fell disappointed because too little functionality regarding addressbook/(no)callergroups. But working my way around it, i quickly started to like the "101".
On the verge of too limited, but doing what it does well, no-nonsense and a rock bottom price. A simple honest phome as a back-up / for clumsy people who will lose or break it sooner or later / for low-income people / and those who don't care about all the latest modern technology and just want to phone and text
I just had my 101 serviced and still experiences restarts. The customer service representative told me that it may have something to do with the memory card. He said to have it formatted which I did. I will observe further. I noticed that the mp3 files that I used for ringing at message alerts are reset to profile settings when a restart happens.
Here's a tip : swap your battery to BL-5C to make it last longer.
Dr.fred, 08 Oct 2011Is nokia 101 have sound leakage?I bought my Nokia 101 on Oct. 6, it has voice leakage when making a call(I have to switch to loudspeaker mode and then switch back to handset mode to remove the voice leakage), but none when receiving a call. It also suddenly restarted(once...so far)when I was replying to a message, other than that it is a good phone, very light and has a long battery life even with a BL-5CB 800mAh battery.(I like the number screening feature).
ocbeatz, 08 Oct 2011i freeking love this phone, just traded in my GS2 for it ! go nokia go ! he,he,he ;-well said

Does it have two speakers(one for voice input and for ringer) because nokia 1280 has only one speaker for both the purposes. So it would be great if u just confirm me since am planning to buy.
i bought mine today it is superb soo cool and nice both simcards work at the same time is really a cool phone.

I just got this phone yesterday and I am loving it.
It got a great speaker for the music. It is easy to use and it is a dual sim phone (Only dual standby and not dual active). Dual standby is when it is not in use and you see the two sims on but when you make a call or receive a call in one sim, the other sim will be shut off. We can also insert a micro sd sim up to 16GB. The keypad is soft and easy to use. I don't have any issues with the phone for the moment. Overall, for me it is a great phone with a great price.
so far nothing is happening on my new nokia101, they just replace my unit 3 days now... just 1 restart as of now..... I will update you guys regarding the restart,bug volume,voiceleakage,selfshutdown when receiving messages,etc... tnx.
can anyone tell me that both sim cards works at a time or one sim stays in standby mode.
very nice price near 35 $ low price good use dual better than samsung nokia is the best but back cover is weak
I just got this handset today.
Looks fine as of now ...
In line with my expectations ...
a phone with dual sim, just very basic functions like mp3 player, memory card and FM ....
no bluetooth !
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2011wow!!! nice phone. definitely an iphone killer. i think it is better than iphone
With a long and vast experience in mobile technology...I don't know why Nokia can't come up with a flawless dual-sim phone. Thinking these are all super low-end phone.
i bought a noika 101, i found that 8/10 calls were automatically shifted to loudspeaker. to remove it frst i have to activate the loudspeaker, then to deactivate to have proper saound.
after this i replaced it with the new one but find the same problem...
this time the battery backup was less then a day, i was just shocked... a china phone is much better then this, they r less in price and far better in service.
it has no satisfaction like nokia phone...
It is the worst nokia phone i ever bougt...
