I bought this mobile today. I read comments about this mobile on gsmarena and decided to buy this phone. I am currently exploring this phone but some points.
1) The design of the phone is way too good compared to the picture.
2)It looks better than Nokia 3500 which only looks good in pics.
3)Big keys and bright back lights and text on keys is visible in darkness.
4)durable as the body is made up of good plastic.
Hey nik, thanks your post man,am using this phone to update these post also,this phone worth every penny,and man its twice as fast than n70, even thou n70 is a better phone,but compared to the price nothing beats this phone,i wish only it was a symbian os phone,and it supported 3g lol,my expectations increasing day by day
Hey murali, hmm for caller tune option,please cal your service provider,you want specific ppl to hear specific caller tune when they cal you rite? Just cal your service providers customer care, you can not do anything about it with you phone cause its a option that your service provider provides,its not a option in the phone,thanks any further questions please post in this site:)
yes johan is absolutely right
no one can ever get such a feature packed phone at such a reasonable price
i sometimes wonder y ppl buy N series, he he
really nokia 3110 classic is just superb
some of my frends have nokia n70 n when i compare my phone with their phone they straight away lose on almost all aspects.
i sometimes feel that lot of ppl r still unaware bout this phone n its features
Hey murali, i am afraid if there is any option like that or not of setting a particular ringtone for one individual, its available in se phones thou, i don't think its possible in this nokia ,but i told you a way of doing it,by managing contacts in groups, for example you can make a group named Johan,then you just ad my contact in that group,then you select a ringtone for the group Johan,then when i cal that groups ringtones gonna play,this way you can make many group for your specific ppls and select different ringtones,hope it helps,thanks. any further queries please post in this site. and someone whose willing to know about the price of this phone,its around 125 USD now, and it was around 150 at the begining,so the price might fall a lil more,for different region the price might vary, and hey jerome, nice decision man,this is a gr8 phone,you can also check out 6233,which got stereo speaker and a 2mpxl camera and a qvga display,that phone is the big.bro of this one
Hey all, this is for olivepagla, man have you ever! Ever! Seen this phone in your whole lifetime? Ever touched this phone ? Man i have never seen such a worthless post before,you should have wrote your poetrys somewhere else where ppls sale cheap chinese phones, i suggest you to get chinese nokla phone your not worth of using real nokia phone man. The nokia 3110c supports upto 2gb of micro sd card,and thanks to its 243mhz arm-9 processor it never freezes like other phones of its price range,and for ppls saying the phone restarts,it really wont restart if you use a quality memory card,i have been using this phone for almost 6months and i doubt if it had restarted 6times or not, this phone is worth every penny, THIS IS THE BEST BUDGET PHONE EVER WITH ALL THE FEATURE IT GOT,thanks
to fgh and johan
thank you guys!
i already made a decision to buy nokia 3110 classic.......
tnx for the pros and cons
one more query which i have asked already.For example if u r calling me and it takes some time for me to pick up ur call.In the mean time can i select a particular ringtone for you to hear the same apart from normal calling tone.is there is any option for that?.
For OLive pagLa
I am using the same model with the memory card specified.But i am using only 1GB since i wish not to load my mobile/software.
I have already used the following features.
1.Taken photos/videos/voice recorded and stored in memory card.
2.I am hearing mp3 songs daily from the memory card.
its better to do a personal investigation within you before splitting out something.
I have used 3 mobiles of Nokia for the last 5 years of different models and i doesnot faced a single problem in those. i have changed the mobile only because of additional features. I am totally comfortable with nokia and so with this model.
This is for your kind information.
I intentionally planned to purchase this phone for my dad since his current one is gonna bye-bye soon.I bought it last Saturday and planning to give it to him next holiday,maybe New Year.(currently we're 600 km apart).
After a few days use I found it quite great,even for some senior people,thanks to its relatively large keypad and font size (a bit small display,of course).Earpiece volume is loud and cear.Other function is virtually flawless to me.
In short summary - this one is more than enought for general mobile - user who needs not much more than daily use,plus ocasionally taking snapshots and listenning to some mp3 during theit free time.You'll never regret buying this phone.
Right now, there only 2 minor flaws that I can think of.
-Phonebook displays both NAMES and GROUPS simultaneusly, in a mix- up order.GROUPS should be shown in their separated submenus right??Haven't seen any NOKIA phone with this configuration before.
-Some mp3 shown as UNKNOWN as their title eventhought they do have IdTag.Thought it might be long-filename issue.But shortenning their names still doesn't help.Moreover,when playing by ALBUM some will sort in wierd order.Fixing their IdTag still doesn't help.
PS.To OLive pagLa .
Grow up kid...Don't waste your time posting some thing like that.Most people have BRAINS.They knew what suits their needs best.
3110 is the worst product of the history of nokia. I used siemens mobile before nokia which was featureless but reliable. I think I should sell this nokia and buy a new siemens phone. 3110 was my first nokia phone. It will be better if I change this unreliable brand. Nokia disappointed me. If anyone cannot use memory card then why nokia has enriched 3110's features saying that it supports upto 2gb micro SD. All those are false. Nokia should take responsibility for that. they should upgrade it's version carefully with more devotion so that no restart occurs unless all 3110 user should throw this disguisting phone to dustbeen and have a new one. On a day of 24 hours we don't want to waste a little minutes for this phone.
Hey neha..thank god now your phone is working :p otherwise you would kill me,hehe just kidding,my network was down last nite couldn't update the post, i use my phone to write these post by the way,anyways this part is for Murali,if you want to select a specific ringtone for a special person :p i mean specific person,than just make a group,then you select a ringtone for that group,and add the persons number in that group thats it,you can make lotsa group i guess,hope it helps, thanks,any questions regarding this phone write on this site,i'll update everyday for the next two weeks.
I have got this mobile.Can anybody help me how to Select a particular Ring tone for a particular person.Also is there is any feature to select a particular Tone to the caller till we lift the phone to attend.
It is working now. I dont know what happened.
I renamed the memory card name.. may be due to this it happened.. now i formatted it.. and again it started working..
Been using it for about 2 months now, really nice big buttons for men's fingers, the white on black display is really clear at night. Its so easy to use the keypad. The display can be set to big text, suitable for my failing eyesight without glasses!
2000 contacts, huge amount of SMS and the use of a memory card.
I love the USB cable (standard cable) to the phone - SMS and software update is so simple
The software is quick and fast response. I used an N73 before, it was shitty slow.
Camera is basic, not complaining. If I want to take photos, I'll use a digital camera for that. :-)
Ringtones/loudness - choose your tones carefully, one that comes out loud on the speakers. Not all of them sound great. N73 had a super pair of stereo speakers.
This cheap phone comes with bluetooth, radio and MP3 player and memory card slot - superb value.
Screen quality is acceptable, don't compare to high resolution ones for heavens sake.
Hope that helps
Thanks.. I will check with the memory card.
N write to u... :)
Pros and Cons of Alcatel OT-C825:
Pros(Alc OT-C825 on Nokia 3110classic):
1. Has a larger screen display resolution(176x220 pixels) than Nokia 3110c(128x160pixels).
2. Has good chrome leather slider design.
1. Possible difficulty to find replacement parts.
2. Keypad feels like soft plastic and i think it's n0t durable.
3. GPRS is slow.
4. Battery life is n0t long-lasting(1-2 days without using MP3 player).
5. Slider gets loose easily.
6. Doesn't support WMA music files and you'll have problems in loading songs from PC to phone 'coz Alc OT-C825 only supports few codecs. (My friend has this Alcatel phone, he loaded 208 songs from PC to phone. Imagine out of 208 songs, only 4 of them worked?!)
If you will ask me, i'll go for Nokia 3110classic but the decision is still up to you.
Hey jerome, the alcatel phone support some interesting java thingy,which i haven't heard of before jsr75 n 135, but other than that i don't think you have any reason to buy that phone,but anyways its upto you,. . You get a infra and fm radio in that phone,but the display is better and bigger,and the thing is. . That phone is not out yet
Hey neha. . .well i guess there is something wrong wit your memory card . . Might be. . Check if the memory card is 'write protected' or not,try formatting the memory card n go to option in camera than use default TITLE to automatic i dunno if it will help or not but who knows! ,check if the memory card property is 'read-only' or not from properties using pc if its only read only uncheck it,cause you can't write data in read only storage,i am not quite sure about wats happening wit all you guys lol,cause i have this phone,i am using it,i never had a single prob,i bought this phone on 27may this year,and i am using a 1gb card,and i have my camera snaps directly into memory card,it made a folder called images in my memory card,but even when i select a different folder in memory card it never shows camera on standby, . .but anyways if your prob is still not solved please write again in details, thanks
Still the problem is same.
2days back I brought this phone. That day I took sm snaps. Those snaps got stored on memory card (external memory). Yesterday I took sm snaps, those got stored in phone memory although my memory card is 413Mb free.
Then I thought to move pics from Image folder which is by default in a phone memory, to the Memory card. It is saying Operation Failed.
I tried to move from memory card folder to phone memory, it got moved easily.
Then I tried to set pic storing option as memory card, it is still storing in phone memory. Then i tried this option with
"folder" Now it is giving me Camera On Standby mode.
What to do now?
PLease Help :)
