My 5140i is still going strong since 2005! Only problem is I can't find an internet supplier who will help me install configuration details so I can surf with the miniature screen. Can anyone help me with this? I live in Sweden and use the state system Telia.

In fact a 3g/4g sim will even work in a Nokia 2110 or a Motorola MicroTAC. Thing is the phone itself is only 2g, and its the telco shutting down 2g, hence why the phone has to be replaced.

the first gps on cell phone. It was released couple of years later and was optional. The gps was in the bottom cover. Great phone
Great phone, I've used mobiles since mobiles were invented. This little phone was the best ever made for taking it tough and bouncing back. Easy to use, powerful and quick to navigate. Screen is a bit small, but the way it worked was fantastic.
I absolutely love the Nokia 5140i. I have had mine since it came out. Still working beautifully.
Living in Malawi, the only problem i am facing is to obtain the original cover for the phone. Mine is deteriorating. I would appreciate it if you could help me in finding/ordering 3 or 4 covers.
Would really appreciate your feedback.
I got my Nokia 5140i the same year it came out. Have used it for 6 years now. Still have the original battery and it lasts for 6-7 days easily. 5140i is what a mobile phone should be. I have no bad words for this phone. It has fallen on solid ground from over 5m, been in water several times (I lost it one day and it staied under the rain outside thru the night - no problem for this phone:D )
Sry for my bad english
But all i wanted to say was:
Nokia 5150i - Best Mobile In The World
I have been demanded the covers of this model in my shop in suburban area here, it is not available by the suppliers here in Ethiopia.If it is possible to send me some from your old sock please I am here to appreciate your good service. My post box address is:-
Mesfin Tadesse PO BOX 14588 Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
This phone is one of the best phones Nokia has ever produced in my opinion. It's built like a rock, has an impressive battery (up to now!) and the flashlight and compass come in very handy. You can do basic stuff on the internet with it (like googling something), though the phone isn't great surfing on the web. The keyboard just feels right. The phone can be used while showering (tested this), withstands short submerging in water (didn't do that one on purpose) and a LOT of abuse. I've had mine for nearly five years now and it hasn't given me the slightest discomfort. Nokia, please make more phones like this one. It's awesome.
i have this one before and it's so cool to have this kind of phone!!it is so handy and so smooth to handle with!i hope there is still more in the mall..especially in the nokia store's..
I still own one green 5140i and it still works as new ! I replaced only its battery with a slightly bigger one, 850 mah instead of 760, but the talk time is still as stated in the technical specs, and stand by time is at least 1 week if I use more my other phone (6710 Navigator). Only the rubber keypad wears quick, but you can find a replacement. I like a lot the thermometer feature and its rubber coating which saved the phone from a lot of accidents. Even my kid didn't manage to break it! When a lot of people still use the modern cellphones only at voice calls I don't see the reason why buy these expensive full-featured mini-laptops with big dusplays that eats battery quick!
One of the best Nokia's made ever... I'd really wait for re-release, with more available options. Works fine even in 2011, after few years of use. Too bad that memory is too small for storing music :(
Survives much better than s*itty Nokia 5800, which got corrupt quite fast...
