I bought my Nokia 6101 Decemeber 9th 2005, and not until I read the previous reviews did I realise the "talk" and "end" buttons are the same color. However the buttons are still distinguishable. The "end" button has the "o" circuit symbol on it (the symbol that indicates how to turn on the phone).
Once you 'know' how to operate your phone, the color of buttons shouldn't be a problem.
And about the paint easily stratching off thing, I haven't experience that yet and I even have my phone sometimes in my jeans pants pocket. The most I can say about the phone is that its a 'dust magnet'. Because the phone is black, the slighest dust and you can easily see it. Same with finger prints.
But all in all, I'm in love with this phone although it lacks a memory card and bluetooth. :)
Well... It´s quite cheap... But good though... Could have Blue tooth...
No problem at all Mayra. The funny thing is, i just noticed the "call" and "end call" buttons as well. I didnt realized before that these buttons are blue colored, lol. Yea i dont think people notice about it as well or they dont really bothered with it at all. *Still in love with my Nokia 6101!
Thanks Coffee. That's so inconvenient. I've never seen a phone do that. I'm surprised in all the reviews i've read on many sites no one has complained about that?
Hi Mayra..Yes, mine is all in blue. I think its just the way it lights its buttons up.
I just got my 6101 and the side arrow button does not work for lowering volume(down arrow). This is minor. But I need to contact the company to exchange if this other odd inconvenience is actually broken. When you open your phone and all the buttons light up, the green and red "talk" and "end" bottons turn blue so you can't distinguish them from the other buttons. In all the site pictures they show these as red and green. Is this normal for them to turn blue? Please respond asap.
Yup, same here. Im experiencing the same problem. Apprently, the paint is not strong enough. Its get scartched easily. But still, i love the phone so much!
m using the nokia 6101 for last 2 and half months. the problem lies with the memory.it should have been given more memeory . other thing is that there is some fault in the fold that has made the color on the panel above the camera gone off. did anyione faced this similar problem.
i got this phone on the 3rd Dec(i got it at RM899)!! I am soo happy!! I got the white one and it's soo cute and pretty.The phone is great too!! The design is nice and the keypad is good too.What I want to say is that go for it!!
hi! I previously owned a lgb2100 and faced a "little" problem.I had activated gprs and after downloading a few ringtones i shut down the phone and it didn't start up again.Is it becaus of virus problems or anything?some one mentioned the same problem with a nokia phone.
Yes it turns on the lights when an incoming call is recieved... This telephone is amazing, the lack of a bluetooth is a serious mistake from Nokia but Easy to use, nice look, and light
I bought this phone back in September and it has been a great phone so far, except for a few little probs. It have turned off and frozen before for no reason. Has anyone else experienced this? Also, has anyone else had the nice chrome bits on the front and top of the phone come off? The black part on the aerial is also starting to come off! I am a little disappointed about this as my phone is very well looked after.
Would any forum users know if the external/ internal display or keyboard illuminates when a call is received.
*little correction.."for ppl who still consider to buy (not but) this phone [...]"
got the phone today and i just simply love it! Have the white version and its sooo cool! This phone is really2 awesome im tellin you. For ppl complaining about bluetooth, it doesnt really matter for me coz it has infrared and its really fast. Whats the use for bluetooth anyway if you only have a memory of 4MB(1.1 to be exact). Exploring through menus arent that fast but overall this phone is totally rockin! Great in design, a pretty good feature (just like what a cell phone SHOULD DO! not as MP3 player or digital camera). For everybody who still considering but this phone or other, you really should pick this one! Worth the money (isnt so expensive, got mine for $210CAD unlocked) and it has a nice features. No problem at all so far. The most important to me is battery life and this phone lasts for a really long time. Nokia 6101 is one of the best phone (with its affordable price) out there. Later..
