THIS PHONE IS GREAT! I got it after my Samsung got stolen and its indestructable. I've dropped it off a two storey building, threw it at countless people, dropped on the concrete then stood on it(quite a few times), my friend chucked it at our school building, I cracked it with a rock, its even been thrown at me and I dropped it in the bath. AND IT STILL WORKS PERFECTLY!! Its a bit scratched BUT IT WORKS! And battery lasts sooo long, its also very simple to use! Great for a first phone or if you are extremely clumsy :)
For those asking what the difference is:
- 1101 has WAP with basic GSM data. Not something you really need in a phone like this.
- The display is different. That most likely also causes the reduced battery life. Not sure if it's actually shorter. I would say this is what makes you choose between 1100 and 1102. It depends on which screen you like more.
I think its so boring it dosent have anything (its prety easi 2 handel). But it grabs realy bud signal and the gatery lasts a lot!!!!
I like this basic phone. One thing is missing from this model ! The FM radio. Nokia, please integrate FM radio on this model !
this is a good phone had 4 ova a year now..its kool...it is strong..fallen up to 2otimesand still works...yea when the battery falls out tha user settings dissappear..but which phone doesn thave this problem
it is cute, small, light..4 ppl who just want a phone that calls and can send sms..its perfect..tha number pad is easy to press and u can change tha face..it is worth is price..
wellllllllllllllllll, this is the best phone so far because it is cheap and has some fine colours. When my husband get this phone for me my friends are telling me that my husband does like me but now i believe he love me most because since i get this phone it has not be once have a problem. my friends that get the coster once has been having problem and they want to buy this phone now. they said my husband loves me because he does want me to be disturb.
Comment below about bugs is definitely wrong IME. No problems AT ALL here.
MUCH better than expensive 5140. You can actually read the display and press the keys with the 1100, and that's not easy on 'most all current Nokias (or others)...
Don't bother what these little lads who post here say. The 1100 is actually the best phone out there for calls. All kids want is toys and lots of 'em to boast to their pals.
To all of you blasting this phone-please dont!! its one of the cheapest phones out there, what do u really expect-for what you are paying for the phone i think its a gr8 little phone-i had a samsung d500 n it broke so while it was getting repaired i bought this one for the week so i had a phone-it cost me £15 n i had no problems whatsoever n for what i paid the phone did the job-i have now given this phone to my mother who loves it n says its easy to use so to all you haters of 'not so good' phones just cos u have a good phone or whatever dont hate cos this phones for those who dont want a great phone or can ony afford somethin a bit cheaper!
* often the alarm fail to ring due uncleare reasons. This is a very nasty bug. Imagine, I was in a bussines trip and I failed to wake up in time due this telephone alarm failure.
This bug is reproducible !!! So NEVER trust in this telephone alarm.
* the signal isn't that good as they claim.
* disturbing echo during the phone calls may appear withaut an obvious cause.
* Come on,... in 2005 they don't offer you any calendar feature
* remove the battery and put it back. You will see that it will loose all your user setting. That is extremely bad and unpleasant.
* low price, for no features
* torch ;)
* good battery life
Nokia 1100 and 1101 are disappointing!... so basic and full of bugs !!??? :
In the past I had a 4 years ols Alcatel 311, http://www.gsmarena.com/alcatel_ot_311-285.php and was more featured than this telephone.
What should I add more?
Operative word being phone. Isn't a phone supposed to make and receive calls? Isn't it what this unit does? Walks like a duck, flies like duck, is a duck.
This is one of the modest phones on the market. But I think it's very good for people with low budget, or those who don't want anything else but to call and SMS.
I use it as a "secondary" phone, I have as a "primary" phone Nokia 6630.
Nokia 1101 it's very good as Stand-By, Talk Time, Signal Strength and basic functions. Anyway I have a lot of friends with Nokia 3310 which is a bad phone compared to this one(N-1101), from any point of view.
So want a good, simple, longlasting and also a cheap phone? Then try it! I bought it yesterday from Nokia Store. Here in Romania Nokia offers a warranty of 2years for every Nokia model. I payed for it 67euros.
I like it very much, cause is very simple compared to the other phone N-6630.
I'm not joking, and I don't make free advertising for this model or for Nokia. But it's my opinion and I have the right to inform people about my opinion.
THOSE WHO DON'T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE GOOD TO DO ON THE WEB EXCEPT TO POST YOUR WRONG OPINIONS ONLY BECAUSE YOU DON'T LIKE THE SIMPLICITY OF THIS PHONE, TRY TO STOP. JUST THINK ABOUT THE PEOPLES WHO WANT REAL USERS OPINION ABOUT DIFFERENT PHONE MODELS, AND YOU POST YOUR FAKE OR PERSONAL OPINION JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE SEEN IT IN STORES AND/OR WEB. GIVE THE FUTURE GUESTS OF THIS SITE THE RIGHT TO CHOSE BETWEEN DIFFERENT BRANDS AND MODELS.
HAVE A NICE DAY U ALL!!!!!!!
BY THE WAY I'M FROM BUCHAREST-ROMANIA, AND I'M SERIOUS ABOUT WHAT I WROTE ABOVE.
Hey dogs I totally agree with you this phone is totally so techneclogicy advance for me to use
This phone is the ultimate phone of the year!!!! the game snake blows my mind!!! the torch on it has got me out of alot of sticky situations. The only problem that i find with it is that it is so technologically advanced that im still trying to learn how to use the many functions of this futuristic phone. if someone can help me to use this phone that would be great
Spot on! 1100 is a great simple *phone* with fast menus and processor, a display you can actually see in daylight (how novel eh?!), and does more than most phones did a few years back, when phones were just that--not gimmicks for the playground. Just right size and weight, battery life great. Color screens are crud; stick your cameras, video, internet, poloyphonic tones up your jacksie! More greyscale lcd phones please nokia, less toys.
