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.
Hi, I have recently just had the "Motorola V3 Razr Blue" Mobile which I have had Faulty 3 times and 3 replacements, Its not a good phone as it collects Dust very easily through the TFT screen but a lovely phone, Just been to Carphone Warehouse and purchased this lovely "Nokia 6101" its a nice stylish phone from Nokia and I am on a Pay As You Go "o2" network, anyone I know the memory is low but when you think about it, If you want a phone with lots of memory and a great Camera and other features then you dont need a Mobile you need a "Laptop"... Get this phone, Dont listen to other comments...
As far as Nokia flip phones go, this one seemed simple, elegant, light, and easy to use. The reception was good in urban areas, and the earpiece volume was also good. Pictures were fine as novelty items but not especially worthwhile for prints etc... So what went wrong? Hard to say, but I do know this: one day the screen went kaput for no aparent reason. It was treated well, so who knows maybe it was a lemon or had a bug. Would I recommend this phone to others. Probably, since when it worked, it was very nice.
It has a really small Memory. I was able to free memory by deleting pre installed ringtones and graphics, so now I have arround 2.4 Mb free.
You don't need to pay to listen radio, you can't listen mp3 on the go, but you do can use an MP3 for ringtone.
It has a great battery life (my first reason to buy it), kinda excellent signal (at least better than with previous models), it has a buildt in camera (that i don't use because a digital camera can take better shots and has an extra memory slot, that this phone hasn't)
It is a good cellphone if you want long battery life, good signal and very little customization. (like me)
hi i would greatly appreciate it if some one could answer my question im going to purchase a new Nokia 6101 for apporixmately 30$ and i wanted to know if it was an actaul mp3 player that i could listen to on the go?
I am 13 can someome tell me if it is a good buy for prepaid people like me. Do you have to pay for the radio? Why do does it have small memorey
it is not a good phone at all i notice flip became loose a after a month it came off all togeter held in 2 bits by a wire.. an friends the same problem i would not advise anyone to get it
I bought the Nokia 6101 in september last year and I thought it was a great phone at first, sleek design, radio, MP3 player, camera and the list goes on. That was till it started playing up on me and now I have had it repaired on 3 separate occasions and no longer use it. I have been using Nokia's for about 8 yrs now and I feel they are starting to lose the quality that I think they once had. To be more honest I think the Nokia 5110 & 3210 were the best models that were ever created. They were basic, if you dropped them they would not break and there was none of this fancy modern technological stuff that is put into all phones today. This will not put me off from buying another Nokia one day but this phone was not well thought out and now I have bought the new Motorola Pink Razr V3 which is has all my needs met that I would need in a mobile phone.
I got this phone about a month ago because my little brother drowned my other phone in lemonade :(!
But i wanted a new phone anyway, but my mum couldnt afford one i wanted (im only 13) I wasnt to sure on this phone but i decided to get it anyway. ALthough it is a good phone it gets cratched to easily from the keypad, like all the scratches on the inside screen look like the keypad which suks! ALso i dislike the ariel, it should have an y internal one!! I really eanted the 6111 but couldnt get it as my mum didntt want to pay that much and then 2 weeks later at the exact same shop i could have got it CHEAPER then the 6101. I was really annoyed but i have to deal with it. I wouldnt reallly recoment it though!
you can edit your pics on any photoshop software on PC and resize your picture to 128x160 then use file transferring FROM YOUR pc TO YOUR 6101 USING pc suite through infrared or CA53 USB.
Its a good phone, the memory its so poor but if you not use the cell like a walkman the memory reaches and exceeds.
The pictures taken with the camera are best even the shown ones in this page.
Is very recommended if you want a cheap phone whit camera and good quality
i like this fone and all but ive herd that it is very flimsy and does temp to break easily.
sombody please tell me if it is good and should i buy it?
I've had the phone for about 2 months and I do love it.. the only thing that sucks about it is that whenever i lost service (like going into the basement or in a place with bad reception) i'd have to shut the phone off and turn it back on again which isnt a good convience because i missed many calls.
besides that i liked how you could basically get your own ringtones for free as long as you had internet since it plays mp3's. i paid $129 for it even though it's free now i think it was worth it.
the camera on it is very clear also!! it looks bad from the second display window but when you open it up, the pictures are very good! holds a LOT of space (a lot more than my last nokia)
Hi, I purchased this phone a couple of days ago it seems to work well. it has many great features that can keep you company. The downside for this phone is that it has very low memory, so there is basically no point of Nokia adding all those features because the memory always seems to be full, your always limited to the amount of pictures, videos, ring tones, and games you can have. Other than that the design is excellent.
I’ve trying to the Nokia software Suite 6.70.22 to resize some images so I can download to the phone. But I can’t find the Nokia 6101 on the pick list to resize the images to a screen size of 128X 160 for the main screen. All I can get is 128 X 128.
Does anyone know if another phone has the same size screen size? I have downloaded the latest Nokia software.
Hi, I've been having this phone fr a few months now and really like it but it does have some draw backs.
Firstly the battery life is only about 3-4days and that too by not using the phone often! Secondly everytime I swich it on I get an error "checkconnection setting" well I've taken the phone to be checked several times and dont seem to fing anything wrong with it. If anyone else has the same prob as me would appreciate if there was a solution.
Lastly I cant seem to download mp3 rigntones from the phone. I've tried from the site saved on my bookmarks but keep getting an error as "file format unknown"
Can anyone tell me a way of getting mp3 rigntones onto my phone or a site to download through gprs?
i've had this phone for 2 months now and i am very pleased. it hasnt given me any problems and it's easy to use. it's my first nokia and will probably purchase another type in the future.
This phone is a disaster, after 1 month the screen would freeze, a million and one error messages would appear and after it being "repaired" three times its still doing the same thing!! Ive had to try very hard not to destroy this thing against a wall and be done with it. Ive since heard bad things about nokia flips, they should stick to what they do best cos this model is for the tip! All my other phones (samsung and motorola flips) have lasted 2 years plus!
