i also am in the middle of searching for a new phone- it is turning off more and more often. Also i sometimes have to turn the phone on and off again to send SMS and the screen keeps going white and black!! ahhh!! its hard to find a replacement phone with a similar high quailty camera though!
my mum got hers on contract free then gave it to me
i wentto text and recived a white screen that wouldnt go away so it was sent back and a new 1 was sent out
the sim holder is tricky and often comes away
i am getting anew phone soon and dont reccomend it

my sister has bought the fone it isn't a bad phone buth you cant puth a card in it she payed a lot of money for it and I bought a samsung E210 for less money and my phone has the opportunity to put a card in it
I love this phone. Slide phones are my favourite and I love how small this phone is... it fits in my shirt pocket. I can listen to my music too.
On the other hand...
I have problems with it switching off on its own.
It started happening after approx 6 months of having it ( bought it new).
Now it seems to happen more frequently. Have it for 11 months now.
I am in process of looking for a new phone as it switched off while i was in the middle of an important call and since i had to wait for it to reboot...when i called back the person, they didn't answer...bummer! I guess they thought i hung up and never called back.
Anyway I will rate this phone 7/10.
I did some research and it seems that a possible cause of the "blank white screen" problem is a broken link between the phone and the screen. This inturn was caused by the slider mechanism of the phone.
i dont think this phone is as bad as people are saying.. i have had it for about 18 months now.. and i can't seem to let go of it.. it has never failed me. only the common problems of it switching off on it's one like once a month or so, which is common for all phones. after 1 year, sliding up tended to catch, which is also common for a slide phone, got it fixed and it was fine. Although there aren't any features to ride home about.. Simple phone for making and receiving calls, and smsing... if you want more with your phone, then i guess you could say dont go for this, but if you dont use your phone much except for basic needs, and want something like looks nice.. then this is for you :) i actually like it and am somewhat reluctant to giving it up
I have been using this phone for about 08 months now. I have never encountered so many problems in any other mobile that i have owned - It stiches off automatically every now & then, screen goes blank, trouble in sending SMS, now the flash doesn't work anymore, the volume control in the side doesn't work well too, the screen resolution has gone bad, if u buy this phone u can may be use it for 03 months after that all hell breaks loose - SIMPLY THE WORST NOKIA EVER EVER!!!! WASTE OF MONEY
Hi all,after reading about the n number of negative comments about this phone,i believe its a very ideal phone,works well for me,i've been using it for the past 6 months now,and i havent faced much of a problem with it,except for the screen going white for a while or black,yes it does happen but very rarely for me,as long as u don't try to kill the phone by sliding it in and out for no reason and i try not to talk through the phone by sliding,cos i believe it might just spoil the way it slides,its cute,i have the black one,and its absolutely chic!
my friend has one of these. Her 6111 is good,she had no problems with it, but I only wanted to know: Does this phone has a2dp? When I open the music player there is an option to play music via bluetooth. I only want to know if this option is enabled
worst phone ever. it wouldnt send msgs. or recieve them. then it decided it wanted to turn itself off all the time. after it got over that, i had to keep it slided up because everytime i closed it the screen turned either black or white. these days it wont even turn on. complete waste of money guys! i strong suggest you dont buy one!
this is the worst phone that has ever been made I work in a phone store and 99% of these phones have come back anyone who works in a phone shop hates the sight of this phone . nokia are on the slide sony are class .
It is a sexy phone but i must say it looks sexy for nothing. No card slot, less storage space.Worse off it like switches itself off when you are about to send a message(after typing a long message).
My advice buy it just for the looks, not reliable for business.
I got this phone for my birthday. it was great except for there is no slot card, and i couldn't use my address book because every time i went into it my phone would turn off then back on agen basically the screen would turn white then black and back on agen. and to make matters even worse the inside spring to make it slide came out and broke so it doesnt slide anymore! i have heard about these things ahppening to alot of other ppl and i didnt even drop it. so i recommend that you do not buy this phone!
I just got the nokia 6111 a day ago, i love this phone, so far evrything about it. This is the first time am coming across this site, and after reading all the negative comments am worried i might face the same problems is there anything i can do to private them from happening. This phone is my dream come true. Help me protect my phone from those problems.
the design is all classy & slique, but belive me anyone still thinking of buying it it's gonna be a waste of money and tym....... wen i 1st got it i had 2 take it back on the 2nd day for a new one, bt still da 2nd 1 has same hassels....... screen going white 2-3x a day , freezing wen trying 2 text........oh! en i can't even use my saved messages folder i case it jst dies on me.......... very nice looks but a crap 4 a phone, totally unreliable.......... & guyz u could have at-least made it use a memory card.
I finaly got some joy out of my 6111 situation. I HAD to go to the Telecommunications Ombudsman in Australia and within a few days the problem looks like being resolved, it pays to go straight to the top. I have had no end of problems and now looks like I may have joy. Watch this space and I will post the resolution when I recieve it in a few days. YYYAAAYYYY
