***This phone is a magnet ****
On the back of the phone, just right above the battery cover you'll see the "nokia" logo. Put a paper clip right on it and it'll stick to it like a magnet! This is awesome.
I really like the physical look of this phone. But not a typical fast menu like other nokia's. Memory too small. Hard to hear ear phone volume is too low4 in loud places. Microphone is not very clear, sometimes i have to repeat myself twice to people i talk to on the other line.
I've had better nokia phones. I recommend the 3220 over this phone. But i like flip phones better. No good nokia flip phones out there. I've had the 7270, had to return it with same problem.
I'm keepin this phone just cuz i only spent 100 bucks on it (american dollars).
Anymore question, please email me. thanks
I accidental deleted fete tone. Can anyone tell me how can i restore it as I cannot send it from another 6101 as all tone are copyright protected.

- Flip could use more "spring" action

Some worth mentioning pros are the fact that there are a good amount of phone features such as a camera, voice dialing, picture messaging, and more. Features such as wallpaper, ring tones, font color, and icons are all customizable. I recommend getting a data cable to take advantage of all the features the Nokia 6101 has to offer.
The most noticeable con would have to be the low audible volume during calls. This only affects what you hear during calls, the other persons volume seems to not be affected. It seems as though it varies with different phones/providers.
Overall, I am very pleased with the Nokia 6101. I had a tough time deciding which prepaid phone to choose, but after doing some research decided to go with the 6101. It has a nice design, good features, and one of the best prepaid phone options on the market.
If you have a cell phone contract/plan, there are far better phones out there.
- Navigation buttons are customizable: change the shortcuts to what best suits you!
- Voice activated shortcuts: assign a recorded voice to a shortcut, hold the volume down button, and then say what shortcut you want to go there
- Loud speaker radio: plug in headset, go to radio options to switch to speaker
- Use camera when shut: just hold down the right external camera button, view yourself in the mini screen!
- Download Nokia Series 40 Theme Studio: program to create themes and customize your 6101
If you like the 6101 design and don't want a prepaid phone, I highly recommend the new Nokia 6125! More features (Bluetooth, internal antenna) but with the same sleek design!
ive had this phone for three weeks and already the spring inside shattered so it didnt wanna open and close properly, the worst phone from nokia, very cheaply made, doesnt wanna open files either, only functions when it feels like it.
Phone looks very nice, and has a good camera. But it has a very big problem: the speakers are really bad. i had it for a week, and i'm returning it because nobody could hear me when I speak. so it's nice that a phone has a camera but if it can't do the basic thing a phone is supposed to do = communication. then, NO thanks
good phone, i'm happy but nokia hasn't showed the best that could do on this model.
the pieces are made of poor material and that cause a wrong impression about quality.
6125 is a kind of evolution but next time don't get wrong because motorola is here to stay!
It is all crap, within the 3 of usage, few of buttons got jamed and it is very slow
overall the phone is crap I sold it for a half a price
Please do not bye this phone
it s a very good phone.make some nice photos and i lke this phone very much.it has infrared and radio.grate job from nokia
this phone is my favourite.It is really good and fashionable!!Me and my sister have both the same mobile!
It froze once when I was using alarm clock function. The alarm kept going off and nothing else would work. That problem stopped after a while. hope it doesnt happen again.
Cant get the sync cable I ordered c 42 to work with nokias pc downloaded program. Service from 800 lines totally unacceptable. Cant find anyone who can help with the problem. Hung up on twice after being put on hold.
Supposedly downloads to my album with are free for pics. That is pretty cool.
This is such a good phone !!! i'm so happy with it , looks really stylish too . it is so easy to use and takes really good pics ! it hasn't got bluetooth but i wouldn't use it anyway , really good buy i would definately recommend it to anyone !
hey i wanna get this phone 4 my mums b'day prizzie should i? i like it tho i dont like the antana thing!!! can u plz tell me if it is coz her b'day is on 15/1/06 this sunday so hurry
Hate it its the biggest rip from nokia ive eva seen thay should be ashamed and why are they bringing out so many phones with such random designs its a waste of money.......
I think it's a cellphone suitable for ladies. It's size is small and you can hold it comfortably. The buttons are large enough so it shouldn't be any problem. It's easy to use. I like it (",)
