I have owned this phone for like 2 months now and I think I got a good deal. It is a rather sturdy phone, has it all really and is a great considering the price.
I never faced any problems with it really. It just works.
I know the camera is not exactly the best on the market but it does the deal, so do the video.
The only set back was the small memory but it is nothing really important since a memory card of 2gb can be added to it.
I have seen that someone had trouble with sending files over bluetooth, I have actually been able to send like 14 files in one time. I was sending the files to a Nokia 6300 and it was the one that got blocked.
I face no problem with the GPRS either.
The phone buttons are very easy to use, the battery life is quite great.
I recommend Nokia 3100C, great feature, great price.
wats the hell nokia is doing for d restrarting problem?the problem started just after a month of purchase.poor software.
Hey, I forgot to tell you that I have already registered with Smart's Internet Browsing Promo last Dec.28'07. And now, I already have 46 points... I just hope that Loadstar will be renewed by Smart so we could get bonus load. hehe..
I think this phone doesn't fully support WMA music files. I have had 10 WMA music files in my phone but some of them when opened in the gallery says "file format not supported". Only 6 of them opened. Then the remaining four won't..
I agree with u guys, da battery sucks.needs more dan 3hrs to charge &hardly lasts upto 2dys.if AC-4 CHaRGER is beta dan AC-3 den y didnt nokia include it wid da package??why??
Yes that is exactLY what I was thinking.
thank You fOr ur comment. my maiLing address is firstname.lastname@example.org. YOu can contact with mE through this.
thanks again anD havE a NicE DaY!
if you're having doubts about the phone. try to handle or test one today. it doesn't look as good looking at its images here. but it really feels good using and having one. i also like the it's being black. i just do not know how to make the alarm sound louder. right now it's almost soft even after having set the phone's volume to loudest.
i got lucky i guess. i'm not having any of the problems already mentioned in here. i do not have to reboot or restart. i do not have problems with charging. the battery door is difficult. it's like you are going to rip it off every time you need to open it.
i just love the phone. the whole package is a great idea. it's got rubberized sides and back. keys are really large. screen is wide enough and almost everything on it can be customized. it's not bulky. it's got bluetooth, irDa, microSD slot, and usb. the frustrations i have is the slow camera capture response, package does not come with memory card and USB cable and it cannot synch with a bluetooth portable keyboard. yeah it's not a business phone type, but it would have been and it would have been better if it had these features. i'll probably get an E51 when it becomes available around here. but i am proud to show off my 3110 classic right now.
Thanks for your clarification.. Now i know that my batt life is just normal.. I was totally confused of whom would i ever believe of all the people here.. Each of them are saying different contradicting ideas.
just to clarify things up:
1. changing ac-3 to ac-4 will improve charging time and not battery life.
2. there is no need to initial charge for 12 hours because the battery of the phone is already lithium ion type (li-ion) intial charging is only recommended to batteries with nickel metal hydride type (ni-mh) this is because ni-mh has this "memory" effect while li-ion and li-polymer does not have memory effect. meaning it is ok to charge and re-charge the battery whether it is not low battery or half full battery. in ni-mh, it is recommended to charge the battery only if it is totally drained, because the battery will "think" that it is already totally drained, however, if you charge it every time it is half-full, the battery will "think" that it is already drained even it is still half-full, thus resulting to shorter battery life.
3. battery life is dependent on usage of the phone and also the environment. in the philippines, where the weather is tropical, average battery life for an average user is only 2-3 days.

the memory card seems to affect the phone it hangz and loses screen display. this begun to occur after about a month and a half.probably the phone has a low memory to operate 1 GB cards capacity..
cul phone with some high end functionz in a simple design. make sure it doesnt fall down all the time it can affect screen display and lead to hanging during operation. It has happened to me..
