I have seen this in the mall today. The features are nice for an entry level Nokia phone but the look is terrible. It comes in pastel faded colours (looks kinda old for a brand new phone) but overall, i don't think it's such a bad thing if you're after a phone that doesn't attract the attention of rubbers.

i encounter restarts but seldom only,, but im not encountering no sim card this time... very nice sounds like xpressmusic. nice phone hahaha
if you are thinking that if the phone can save messages and contacts on the microSD card? The answer is No.
The dual SIM worked perfectly in standby mode and the other SIM gets deactivated once you are on a call so it’s not ‘dual SIM active’.
I have purchased Nokia 101 yesterday and found it great. In this price range this is a very good phone to use. Display, keypad, sound quality, battery timings and signals ALL ARE FINE!. I recommend to get this phone.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2011Is It Dual Standby?Yes it is dual stand-by. Both sim is active at the same time but I think this will use a lot of battery power so there's an option to just activate one sim at a time. Or you can choose to have both of the sim active but as I said it will drain the battery much faster so I would recommend the BL-5C not the BL-5CB for this. Unfortunately the package here in the Philippines comes with the BL-5CB. I'm looking to try 3rd party batteries if it's worth it.
CARLO, 28 Sep 2011mauragon------------ have u tested it??? the music on your nokia 101??? The sound quality is ok. I just wish that the phone supports playlists but you can organize your songs into folders and the mp3 player app is able to make you browse thru folders. you can also save songs into your favorites.
bosjef, 28 Sep 2011Hi Mauragon,
Thank you for the reviews. I'd like to ask how is the call reception. In the X10... moreThe voice call is ok the volume adjustment is the left and right of the scroll key or the navi-key.
I think there is minimal voice leakage and you have to really stick your ear to the rear speaker to hear the other party. I will test further to confirm this so please stay tuned.
One problem though is the chance it restarts. when I;m trying to view a message or sometimes when I'm typing a message. I need to have this serviced or replaced.
I would suggest you guys getting this unit to get the BL-5C battery for this.
On the dual sim capability, It's dual standby. You can also switch-off one of the sim to save battery. Sorry this is my first dual sim fone so I still need to fiddle a alot.
I also like the audio quality. I think this is just the x1-01 repackaged. At the minimum volume. The audio quality is decent.
You can also use the saved mp3s in the memory card as ringtone and message alert. Something that I've been missing since the nokia 1202.
I already mentioned the light weight that you almost feel like nothing in your pocket.
Message is 250+ but there's no message number in the inbox though so you cannot know how many are there so that you can delete the messages. I'm lazy so I just collect the messages so when the inbox is full I just delete all.
bosjef, 28 Sep 2011Hi Mauragon, Thank you for the reviews. I'd like to ask how is the call reception. In the X10... moreusually for a Nokia to add volume you need to press the add key when you are in a call. try
have u tested it??? the music on your nokia 101???
to bosjet... yes it has voice volume control. when ure calling just press left to lower voice. right to higher the voice call..
im just experiencing signal loss(no simcard) on sim1. i dont know why. but very occasional,. at first i think the simcard is the problem but i changed the sim but still i get no sim card on the sim1. but this day i dont encounter that problem. i have this phone 4days now. 1 No simcard display on sim1 for 3 consecutive days..
but for newbies like signal dropping they said. i think they dont know that this phone is not dual active. but dual stand by.
when ure gonna call using the sim#1 the signal on sim#2 will drop to zero because this is not dual active--- after ur call then the signal on sim#2 will be back...
