To honey who posted a puerely opinionative comment about nokias decreasing shares due to models like the 5140i. i have worked in a mobile phone retailer for the last three months.and not a week goes by without somebody asking me to order them a 5140i. sure its military esq looks and its now outdated vga camera may not suit everyone. but with its sheer durability and bullet proof reliability. continue to make nokia a market leader catering for many who rely on such a sturdy phone.
i used 2 have a 6101 and im surprised that this 1 is better. very pleased!
i dont think anyone would agree with me but this phone has got style. it is rugged and tough and its also got style! and its got all the features u would need. i bought mine for $139. its great!
fantastic phone, had it for about 2yrs now, have not gotten any problems with it, the camare could be better though, but overall it;s a great phone!
I've had mine for long. Fantastic, I love and use all the functions. The screen display is not the best around, but for me its ruggedness and features more than make up for it
does anybody know how to install the mms seetings in this phone i cannot get it sms'ed from my service provider as they do not sell this phone in canada.but they gave me the setting details (apn:. username.password .ipaddress etc).
i cant seem to be able to load these settings so please khelp somebody as nokia support sucks and cant help
Awful keypad. The rubber is floppy, and after 1 year typing is becoming really hard. Maybe Nokia accounted for this as this phone has a replaceable key pad.
Only it is not clear, whare to get a new one...
Great phone, perfect for any trades-men ie electricians, plumbers, joiners etc. This phone can handle the durability required and last lots longer than any other.
One year ago my wife put this phone through the entire wash cycle on our washing machine. over 1 hour in water. Guess what... it is still working. There may be many better phones out there, but none as clean!
this handset is very good previouly i was using a d900 and this handset is so much easier to use and more pleasing to the eye and of cousre i can throw it around
Nokia 5410i,good sturdy looks.
Poor camera Feature.It also scores
low with its talk time.
I got Nokia 5140i and its too good man...i love all its features. It looks sturdy and it very easy to navigate. Previously I was using Samsung X100...it sucked! Nokia 5140i satifies all the basic needs a mobile user needs..Must buy in medium end series of mobile.
Had this phone for about 3 months and was very disappointed with it. Prior to this I had the 5100 which was excellent, but this doesn't meet the high standards set by that model.
The build quality is terrible. The two halves of the shell don't even fit properly, and the bottom half wobbles loosely when using the keypad. Perhaps my shell was poorly made, and an exception - I certainly hope so.
The camera, while obviously not a main feature of this phone, is such bad quality it wasn't even worth adding as a feature.
Also, the screen is difficult to read outdoors. This is a problem with many phones but seems worse in the 5140i. On the other hand, the standby display (clock, icons) is near-impossible to read in any lighting conditions - you can't just glance to see if you have a message or missed call, but rather will have to press keys and deactivate the standby.
Other things to note:
- The included themes and colour schemes are badly designed, in that many clash with the menu fonts and make them difficult to read.
- There seems to be no option to turn off the sounds in the games, or even reduce the volume. Even on Silent mode the games will still make VERY loud irritating beeps.
This post may seem entirely negative, but the phone is not without good points. Indeed, it uses the familiar Nokia software that is, on the whole, rather excellent. It shares many other good points with many other Nokia phones. It's just a shame that it adds absolutely nothing of it's own, apart from an inferior build-quality.
very good phone
recently launched by nokia in india
a few things are missing taking into consideration of presesent trends of india
2 only 3.5 mb
i think this set would not give much sales to nokia as motorola recently launched l6i
on comparison with 5410i its having 10 mb memory, very good speaker, looks goog, bluetooth and stereo fm....
i only want to suggest nokia echelons that indian consumers wants bluetooth,good memory atleast 50 mb if not extendable inbuild and very good speaker ie supports mp3 files
please good sake donot put futile features thermometers ,compass etc
its better giving right type of features
ours objective is not about launching n numbers of products but launching products which the consumers of that country wants in this way we can save lot of money etc
