excellent phone worked well for me last nite when i was at my regular dogging spot xx
what a cracking little handst it takes excellent pics of my new bottle green saxo xx
this phone is so amazing with the vibrating feature and the rubber case , god i love this phone and want to marry it
what a cool phone, especially if you are into extreme sports like mountain biking, just chuck it in your pocket and yer don't have to worry about it, very very loud ring tone.
I have owned a 5140 for 2 years and only had to replace the display twice. My fault on both occassions. Good phone if you only want a practical phone. Now looking at the 5140i as a replacement. Reason for replacing the phone, the keypad is wearing out, (touchy buttons) and battery is not holding a charge long enough.
can any one plz tell me if u can upgrade the memory one this phone plz wb
what the f...k are you arguing about? That its camera is not good enough or its memory is not big enough? this phone was not made for makeing photos, or listening to music. if you want to make good photos, get a camera and if you want to listen to music, get an mp3 player. this phone has long battery life, its signal is very good and its extremely resistant to shock. it has a thermometer, flashlight, compas, etc. what else do you need? if you want to have fun, buy a sony ericsson, its cheaper, maybe better looking, but you drop it once and its f...ked and you will have to recharge it every 2nd day.
so don't talk that much, see the facts.
The 5140 is the best phone ever,you can do anything to it ,like the perfect man and it still works!! i love it!!!
I've had this phone for a year and it's survived and thrived.(where others have not) I work as a landscaper and a bit of water is unavoidable. It's never been a problem with this phone. It's also been dropped many times and once again, not a problem. I like the flashlight feature as well and it's helped me out on more than one occasion. Mine also has the soundmeter, which sounds funny, but it's great if your having a party and the neighbors complain about the levels. A good way to get your guest to be quieter too.(lol)
Hey crazy forum dudes!!
Is this phone suitable for diving,or snorkelling?
This thing is not waterproof at all! Mine did not even survive 3 min. in the washing machine. (the time it took me to hear the rattling) This phone is still OK, besides the bad camera, terrable compass and stupid training programs. But it has very good battery life (if you don't use the LED light at all)
Well its not waterproof its splash proof,i splash around in the bath with mine all the time and its fine,I have also got several other liquids on it and it still works!
when I bought this phone I was told it was water proof, I went diving with friends and when I took it out of my diving suit and tried to make a call my wife couldnt understand a word I was saying, is there something wrong with my phone or is there a whole new underwater language we need to learn?
Well - after a month of use I want to change it ... The antenna isn't great, dialog partners complain about he quality of sound. The display is difficultly visible in bright enrironment (sunlight). The keypad isn't comfy - one needs to push hard.
The gadgets (compass, thermometre) etc and the rubber case are cool anyway.
I stick to Nokia but this model is not for me.
The rubber cover started to wear/tear after 3 months average town use and the warranty does not cover the outside part of the phone -huh Keyboard to small but they have given you spirit level incase you need to hang a bookshelf during sports activities or driving etc. Battery life not to good either. PASS you should.
Promises much delivers some all in squishy and disappointing fashion. Clever gadgets give way to cumbersome toys and the GPS mapping is very poor. Two months and replaced. Think again and buy elsewhere!
gigjas: The radio antenna is in the headset,I think, hence it needs to be plugged in to work. As to the radio as an alarm clock, you need an external speaker, eg. the Nokia MD1 music stand, see http://www.nokiausa.com/nokia_accessories/item_details/1,2305,product:MD-1,00.html
I love my newly bought 5140i BUT two things bother me. I can only send one picture attached to each email. Is this fixable? If not it is expensive for me to transfer pictures to my IBook one at a time....TECHNOHELP PLEASE..... I also don´t understand why the headset must be plugged in for the radio to work. I never use the friggin headset, the loudspeaker was one of the reasons I bought this phone. The alarm clock can be set to radio and it is possible to set it to loudspeaker, but if the phone is not connected to the headset it rings the standard alarm!!
Help me good ppl!
I'm using Siemens ME45 from 4 years and it is time to change it. The side buttons (2,4,7,3, 6,9,*,#) got a little frayed and it does not look good.
I am thinking about 5140i.. and i want to ask the owners - does this phone looks like it will work for about more 3 years, at least?
I am sentimental and I heat to change my personal surrounding too often.
