I used to have a Siemens ME45 and then switched to this one...very bad decision. For durability, splashproofness, dustproofness etc. the ME45 beats this one by miles. The 5140i looks sturdy but it's not, so I'm considering switching back to Siemens, this time to the ME75, a far better choice if you want a phone that can take a hit and still work...
I had the 5140 for about 18months. It worked well, took a bit of a beating etc. The only problem is that the rubber flap at it's base pushes on the charger and slowly wrecks the pop port. As it is an all in one (for dust proofing) you can't fix it. NOT HAPPY. I'd suggest ripping that rubber base flap off on day one and enjoy the use of an otherwise decent phone.
I am also about to buy an 5140i. I searched for it at californiacomputer and found out a price of 150$. But they are selling 5140 for 175$. Its kinda wierd. But I guess 150$ is a good price for such a good phone.
I guess it will get cheaper buy release of 5500..
We are about to buy 6 Nokia 5140i phones are we doing the right thing serious answers please
This is the shock proof phone....right.....is it water resistant? Can Someone tell me more about this phone and how it performs...Thanks guys......
this phone isn't water proof. Its water, dust and shock resistant. Although a lot of time it can get pretty wet it can be damaged by water and not work
The Nokia 5140i is indeed a top phone. It's not a flashy handset but then again it doesn't need to be because of who its aimed at. The basic functions are typically 'Nokia' i.e. relatively straight forward and easy to use, although as can be expected the camera and screen res are a little rubbish. I had this phone for 2 years before it finally packed up and in that time it took a serious beating through various bashes and drops. The various 'special' features of this phone are interesting if a little useless (the compass tends to be dicey and the torch is dim when compared with the latest SonyEriks), but that aside its great. 5140 does what it says on the tin, its tough and will still call out after you 'accidentally' lob it off the wall after a phone call to the missus.
