memory isn't expandable.. but it takes good pictures... you can transfer data (pictures, ringtones) thru infra. no bluetooth.
would anyone know if you could send pictures to other mobile phones using the infrared??? pls do tell me if its possible.. thanks
i have this phone and its great.i love design,but there is not too much memory.
my best friend has this fone and it rocks. i was going to get an LG but when i saw this nokia i fell in LOVE. only one prob, howcome it says that u can only get it in black but i have seen soo many pics of silvers ones? pleas help me....
I bought a Nokia 6101 about a month ago and I love the phone. The only two problems is that the loud speaker is that great and it is sooooooo bad on memory! You can only take about 10 pictures and it gives you a message that the phone is low on memory. The two displays are great!!!! I would recommend this phone but if you plan on taking a lot of pictures I dont suggest it!!!!
I would not reccomend this phone to anyone who text messages regularly...you cannot write a new text message without manually erasing the last one you wrote...AFTER you do that, the title stays the same until you exit out of the "message" menu and then return to it. There is no setting to change this.
Also...it takes a few seconds for each screen to load
AND...unlike other phones where i could see 7-8 entries in my missed/recieved/dialed calls list and inbox/outbox, you could only see 2 or three.
I could not get used to this phone for the life of me...Samsung all the way!!!
this phone is real gr8 i hav had it about 8 months the problom is it stores hardly any photos
I have had my nokia 6101 for 6 months now, and i have to say it's the best phone i ever had,i dropped it on really hard surfaces and never broke,up to date never had one single problem and if you play with it long enough you will be surprised what you can do my wife has the same phone and she never had any problems either, only phone i will ever buy.
I have had my 6101 for 5 days. I have never owned a Nokia phone before and was excited when they finally came out with a flip phone. It worked fine, the camera is much better than the Motorola V-300 I traded it in for. Then it dropped from my hand, once. From about three feet, to the ground. Not an exceptionally hard fall, it just fell. The ringer no longer works. It is amazing to me that a phone could be designed under the pretense that it will never suffer a three foot fall, one would think that the designers would give some thought to the possibility of a phone being dropped by it's owner.
In any case, other that the fact that I do not know when someone is calling unless the phone is in my hand or very close to me it works great.
Oh, just one little thing.
If I was to review this phone I would change the GSM's Arena headline: Nokia 6101 The Asian Way. I would call it: Nokia 6101 The Stupid way!
It seems that people don't have good hearing anymore:
MY SITER HAS THIS PHONE:
-Horrible slow menu response
-Cheap plastic design (and that's only $50 less in retail price than my perfect $200 6170!)
-Very low volume sound quality (again comparing to my normal loud 6170)
WHY DOES NOKIA/T-Mobile release this model and not a beautiful/perfect 6170 in the U.S.?????
I just bought this phone for a great bargain deal with t-mobile. I originally had a Motorola V300 which was so frustrating due to flaws, i ended up destroying the phone.
For the duration of 5 months, these are my observations.
A nice solid durable phone.
no factory flaws
comes with a quality battery
If you are looking for a "bling bling" phone with all the fixins, this phone is not for you.
I personally adore this phone because it is perfect at being a phone. It has video capabilities, and camera, but it is at best average. Where this phone exceeds is bringing you crisp phone calls, and portability. The best i've ever experienced compared to the 2 motorolas i owned. (v300, and the RAZR)
it's a really great phone. the picture quality is pretty good and it stays looking nice easily. the only concern i might ever have, is that everytime i've tried to send a picture to my email or something, or even friend's emails, the url it sends me to doesn't work. but i've never had a probelem with the phone!
I work all day with phones, and what you are saying about this phones memory is very true, but there is a simple rememdy. Once a week you should clear the "cache" on the phone and you will be good to go. My friend also has this phone so I know it works.
i would like to know if both holes output sound or only the one furthest away from the antena. i have a feeling that i might have got a drop of cola in the one closer to the antena and could be blocking the little speaker screen it has in there. so id like to find this out which hole outputs sound before i take it apart and clean it. thanks.
i bought this phone unlocked, its native t-mobile. im using it on rogers in ontario, and its a pretty sick phone. the only drawback is it memory. but that really shouldnt be a selling point of a phone. (well maybe now a days it is). i like how u can make ur own mp3 tones and send em over to the phone using the IR. reception is decent. i had a samsung p207 before and only bought this cause i needed speakerphone. but the p207 reception in an underground concrete garage in a condo building was usually 5/6 or a full 6/6 bars and this phone is only 2/4 but there is no cut outs or crackles when ur in a conversation. so all in all i like this phone cause it fits my lifestyle a bit more than the p207.
M E M O R Y ! ! ! !
PLEASE!!!, IT has practically no memory, MP3 is a useless feature coz 1 song will consume the only 3MB of shared memory it has.
Ext screen Awfull (Please, a CSTN disp? what about the SGH-E316 and his both TFT Screens? Nokia, you can do it better)
Memory BAD, HORRIBLE, NO MEMORY
Good characteristics: IRDA (no soft for upload to the phone but for download it needs the f*ck*ng PCSUITE) camera, unlimited video, radio (it came with stereo headsets).
BAD characteristics: The radio doesn't work without the headset, can't download from the phone to a PC without NOKIA's software, VERY LOW MEMORY, Not all MIDI ringtones works (Only Yamaha OPL or XG plays on this phone, otherwise it says "Damaged file" - "Archivo dañado")
this phone has really really good design but a little bit thick....the memory is very very low if it had a card slot it would be much more better and of course the lack of bluetooth is bothering too and i hope nokia add unlimited video recording (in 3gpp or mp4) and unlimited voice recording (in amr) to its future phones in 61 series but this design is briliant i put a 10 for design , 5 for features and another 5 for performance.
