This phone is amazing for texting. Been using this for nearly 5 years and i haven't seen another phone that can match it in the SMS speed typing department. Nokia should seriously consider bringing this phone back they may sell another 200 million of it. Also none of the 1100 successors have been able to do what 1100 did.
Michel, 15 Oct 2009I want to know what is the first year of this Nokia phone?Help me please. Also i want to know ... moreNo, this came out in 2003 and wasn't Nokia's first phone. Nokia's been around a very long time, over 100 years before they made electronics

There is absolutely NO POINT in a color screen on a non-camera phone - it just makes it harder to use the phone. The 1100's mono screen is far superior as I can easily see the time / battery level, and if I've had any missed calls instantly without having to press keys as with color screened phones. Really, we've gone backwards cos the kids want ever more gimmicky features and Nokia has given in. Modern phones with color screens are like going back to a 1970s LED watch, having to push buttons to get the display to light up every time you want to see the damn thing! I'm gonna run this phone till one of us dies.
Excellent navigation keys on these - so simple and so much better than the four way scroll nonsense on all new Nokias like the later 1200 which was of course a downgrade from this phone in all respects. Nokia: BRING THE 1100 BACK!
Near perfect mobile. Why won't Nokia do a simple mono screen version same spec as this, maybe a touch thinner and a few grammes lighter... I'm sick of color screens and other utter crap that makes modern day phones such hard work.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2009my docomo sim is not working in 1100 plz helpI faced a similar problem. I simply upgraded the software form Nokia Care centre & then the Tata docomo sim started working.
Bring this back!
Best mobile ever as a PHONE. These are sought after now and are selling used for top prices, for good reason - it has never been bettered and now all other phones are much the same.
i buy a second hand nokia 1100. also i utilised it very much and so many times it fall down from my hand. but still since 3 years no complaints on that mobile and still using it perfectly. i tried to buy a new 1100. but its very bad to know its not manufaturing now
this is a royal mobile
i thanks the nokia for this mobile
this is a nokia's best mobile
On a side note... If you click on page 39 of this 1100 discussion, you can read very different views (back when the phone was just released) than the ones in first pages...
Oh how the time has changed:P
