This phone is not much good,,Ok it looks good but it is a poorly made phone.After a while the flip part gets very loose.Some of the keys become loose and others get stuck. It has a terrible memory that you have to share with everything else on the phone.1 tiny mp3 and the memory is full.It will not work inside a shopping center.It has 4 default crappy jap ringtones and that is all.
The camera is poor (no ZOOm)quality of photo is poor.Nite time don't bother trying.
The case scratches so easily almost like the paint still aint dry.After a while the plastic starts to delaminate around the ariel and the chromr fades back to black plastic really fast and then it don't look all that nice anymore.
spend an extra few bucks and buy a Motorola 535 or a Motorola razr V3.I am not usually a Motorola fan but these 2 modells are brilliant and leave the 6101 for dead.They both have heaps of memory and do everything better except suck,,,the Nokia 6101 does that better.
when i saw it, It's just a fancy, lousy phone!
AND LOOK IT HAS AN ANTENA!! so cheap.
What is the storage capacity of this phone? I need a phone that can store >100 messages at least, and crazy as it may seem, my current phone - less than 1 year old- doesn't even do that!
i bought the phone for a couple of months already and recently the screen began to have some problem. When I flip the phone open, the lights of the screen and keypad will keep flickering and blackout. Just wondering if any of you who owns this phone had encounter things like this.
I bought an american 6101 at t-mobile.
1.I have also the problem as many 6101 users taht the camera as i make a photo on night mode it takes the picture in day mode.
2.My menu is also slow of 1-2sec as i enter it.
But my questions refer to you.
I would like to upload all the real Nokia Games, Wallpers, Sounds etc.. to the phone and delet the t-mobile ones.Can anybody help me where to find them.
ps:Where can I give the newest software on the phone?
Great Phone. Best i have ever had. There hasn't been a problem yet. The speaker and ear piece is fine, and im partially deaf, so that is syaing soemthing!!!!!! The camera is so good, im using it as a proper camera now. The battery life is alright. The keys are the best. they actually are "human-size." Its lite, its small, its perfect
dun u think the screen too small?
I like the design but the screen so small.
When I wanna take photo, the viewfinder so small, dunno how 2 see.
NEVER EVER buy this phone. 6101 looks fancy but nothing is what it seems. The sound level of the phone speaker is very very low. You never understand anything in a crowded place or cafe. And also the sound level of the earphone is too low while listening the radio. This is a real design mistake. I will not trust nokia anymore. If you read the other reviews, you can see the other people complain about this. So what is a phone for? talking.. But you can't talk with this phone. Trust me and don't spend your money on this crappy machine.
This phone's design is great. I love it. I received this phone a few days ago and only have two problems with it:
1. There is a delay after pressing the menu key
2. When you clase the flip, all applications do not stop
Add Bluetooth and a bigger memory and you will have the perfect cell.
Very good phone! Maybe there should be some more features as bluetooth for aexample. Now I`v been using my 6101 for almost two months and there haven`t been any problems at all. In my opinion handsfree works quite good and I use it a lot.
this phone sucks big time..... horrible reception, crappy camera. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!!
I had a look at this phone when I was in the market - I have had Nokias before, which I have alway rated highly, but in my humble opinion this phone looks and feels cheap and nasty. The graphics are ordinary and the external aerial is tacky.
I just wanted to know how the handsfree sounds. does it really work? because most of them are not really useful...
can i use MIDI-based polyphonic,
NB-AMR and WB-AMR (True Tones) audio clips as message alert tone??
I think it is a great phone one nokia built I have not had a single problem the sound is great and so is the rest of the features only wish it was bluetooth
it this phone a good choice, how long is the voice recording and video taking. and is the video taking show a clear picture and are the pictures taking clear. Please email me back soon
I bought this phone for $ 150 and I am loving it! Best Phone i've ever had!
I bought a 6101 recently, had to buy the black one , bcos white was not available. it looks good, but the build quality is not upto mark, . The navigation keys sound hollow. also the sound on the phone is not great..need to strain to listen in heavy traffic,or have use the ear phones. The Loudspeaker is good for handsfree operation..so are the large keys ..(i bought this phone for the keys..my thumb feels much better now , even after all the sms I send..my previous phone was t-100 from SE,which had small keys). Camera and main display are better compared to previous nokias(forget about the quality of the mini display on the front panel..its for displaying the caller id)..but not as good as sony ericsson..The reception is also great ..thanks to the external antenna..The phone stands out in the crowd ..due to its unique design.."good looking clamshell from Nokia..that too with an antenna"...its a hit in my office..
The phone design typical SE Asian..may be made with these markets in mind..reminds me of the phones in Japan..the camera position on the front panel is typical Japanese..they shoot self potraits and mail it ..
Buy it if you want a clamshell nokia..with great reception (thanks to the antenna)..the other features are all commomplace..for me its my first Nokia..I am not complaining either......Ramu Nair
I love the phone. Easy to read menu of who you want to call.Nice size numbers to dial.
To one who asked about radio. Headphones have to be plugged in then go to radio. Let headset plugged in and You can turn on speaker phone to hear. Also you can still recieve calls it will shut off radio and you answer phone.
Now Con for me.Cannot assign different ring tones to different people . Only able to assign them to groups.
Hey guys for anyonethinking about buying this it is a bad idea! Bat life blows!!
