very much surprised by this phone as this is not at all a good phone. repetition of n5100 looks but no additional good features. Memory is very low.
This looks like YUCK!
What is Nokia doing, i think they need to take some ideas frm products like Ultra and Krazar
The Nokia 5140i supports Push-to-talk (PTT), a technology that allows you to instantly talk to other people owning a PTT phone on the same network, just by the push of a button, as with a walkie-talkie.

This phone was going great for me.. then one day I dropped it accidently and the screen never worked again. It was justoutof its one year warranty so I hadto pay $35 for Nokia to look at it, only to tell me that it could not be repaired and it was useless.
Good phone for because is nokia , ugly, but the batery , memory , case , not very good
This phone seems to have nice features.. vga camera, usb connection, fm radio etc. But damn it looks poor to me! I don't like the looks this mobile at all. Maybe 'cause I'am a woman.. So I think this was designed for men only who sees all the other stuff except the appearance.. :)
I'm not saying this is ugly, it's just too rough to me. :D
it very simple to turn the flash on.just unlock tha phone by pressing MENU &*(you know that).press and hold # button till the light is on.to turn the flash off press and hold it again(#)you can put it off even phone is locked
i have this phone 2, and im happy with it, i just wonder how the flashlight can be turned on??
I totally agree with you steve, this phone is like a mobile god.
Don't understand what you people grumble about, I bought my 5140i for the simple reason that it's a hell of a lot more resistant to knocks and scrapes than your average mobile. No it isn't bullet proof or waterproof and it probably won't stand being dropped from a great height, but it's still tougher than 99% of normal phones. Which is exactly why you should buy it. The camera is crap, but hey, you know what i did? I went and bought a Canon Ixus digital camera. Remember cameras? they take pictures. Good ones. And as for music, I've got a stereo that does that. So that leaves making calls and sending texts, both of which the 5140i does pretty well. It also does it reliably come rain or shine. It's proved resistant to mud, falling off my mountain bike once or twice (and if I ever break my leg in the middle of nowhere, at least the battery will be full and it'll have a strong signal, so who cares if the photos of the air ambulance won't be brilliant) and the attentions of a two year old child. My last Nokia, a 6600 cracked in two when i dropped it on my wooden floor. So if you spend time doing sports, or maybe working outside, go and buy one, it'll do you proud. It'll happily survive knocks, splashes and falls, just don't make the mistake of thinking it'll take deliberate or constant abuse. Because it won't.
I do not beleive mine eyes!
Qutoe:Do not drop this phone on its back!!!
I think you dropped it on it's back on purpose to try and claim on warranty yes!
Quote:I broke my screen this way, and another 5140i owner told me he similarly broke his speakerphone.
More evidence! You and your friend were in league with each other!
Quote:It is not as durable as you might expect. It also has very poor warranty support by Nokia.
Oh yes! Nokia have more IQ that you, they saw through your feindish plan to scam them via warranty and send you packing!
Quote:The screen is too dark to read when it is not backlit.
You need yours eyes testing!
Quote:The operating system is horrible to use.
You need to take a computer course!
Quote:The thermometer is so slow to react, it will measure the temperature in you pocket for 15 minutes after you take it out.
It has a thermometer??? OMG! This phone rocks my world!!
Quote:The earpieces aren't well designed to fit human ears.
Your ears must be oddly shaped!!
Quote:Do NOT buy this phone. It blows.
Do not drop this phone on its back!!! It will likely break when dropped from modest heights (1-2ft). It has no rubberised protection on its back. I broke my screen this way, and another 5140i owner told me he similarly broke his speakerphone. It is not as durable as you might expect. It also has very poor warranty support by Nokia.
The buttons are fiddly and small, particularly the on/off button. The screen is too dark to read when it is not backlit. The operating system is horrible to use. The thermometer is so slow to react, it will measure the temperature in you pocket for 15 minutes after you take it out. The earpieces aren't well designed to fit human ears.
Do NOT buy this phone. It blows.
nnnooo how dare nokia withdraw this i cant live with out it got no reason to go on going to end it now
If you check Nokia 5140 on most e-bay sites you will find dozens of new unlocked ones at reasonable prices being offered by Hong Kong vendors who will ship it to you
just ordered this phone today to upgrade to,never had a play with it, but o2 assured me its the best nokia on the market at the moment and that because i was a high spending i could have it for free. i think o2 r great for that cant wait to get to grips with the 3 megapixel camera on it.
Does anyone know how to change the main menu display on a 5140? I just picked up a used one on e-bay as I liked the features and hated my new Motorola with passion, but I don't like the icons display when you push menu button, want to change to plain text as I do know how to read! Can't seem to find anything in the instruction book on this.
Also funnily it doesn't seem to want to read my address data stored on Sim card, I hate the idea that I am going to have to stick the sim into the motorola and write all the numbers out. Any ideas?
