I've had this phone for about 8 months. I really liked it at first, but now I have to say it is the worst phone I've ever had! I used to like Nokias, but I think my opinion has definitely changed. I don't know why it is advertised as a music phone/mp3 player when you can only get about 3-4 songs on it. In the middle of texting, the screen goes white and turns itself off. It also switches itself off and on whenever it feels like it, so text messages come through hours after they've been sent. My charger died so I had to get a new one. Do not buy this phone, its a waste of money!!!
Don't get this phone
This is my fourth Nokia. Usually they are great but I wish I had never bought this phone.
Have had it for 5 months and it turns itself off at random, can't recieve messages for days, has a terrible battery life, keys don't work properly and loudspeaker volume is terrible.
Try a different model and don't get stuck with this
I got the Nokia 6111 in April and for the first couple of months its was great! However, since then it seems to be having the same problems as you guys...the screen goes white and randomly turns itself off, i'll be halfway through writing an SMS when it seems like the 'cancel' key is stuck and it starts deleting the text as im trying to type it. The top of the slidey-bit is loose on one side and just last weekend it stopped charging completely!! thankfully i took it to the 02 store in Stirling where the nicest man ever tried it with a different charger and replaced the charger for free!! i used to work for 02 Online...this would never have happened with them!
anyway, all in all a very cute phone but has so many problems i'm absolutely gutted i ever left my old Samsung!!! x
plz someone help with the question i asked b4!! are there nokia faceplates that will this phone and not wreck it
This phone has to be without doubt in my opinion the best possible phone on the market. Ease of Use, FM Radio, Games, Durability, You Name It its GOT IT!! Love it loads. - my lil pink baby
When the volume button is at its highest you still cannot hear the caller, switches itself off all the time, nice looking phone but is rubbish
My sister wants to buy this ugly phone and she likes it I hate it

Okay, I've had this phone for about 9 months. And just like the other person who commented on their 9month old 6111, the only thing that's been bothering me is the dust behind the screen!
It fell and the top thing was a little wobbly, then it fell again but it went back to normal and not wobbly haha
And guess what? It fell again today, right into the ground street, and yet it still works. I hope. I think. No, i know.
So yes, all in all, i think all those who complains just got the crappy ones of 6111.
My inbox works fine, tones don't reset to default unless you change the theme, if volume is too low when it's the highest you're a bit deaf, screen quality is just fine, if you know it only has 23 mb why did you buy it?, poor battery life? i don't know how hard it is just to charge a freakin phone, and bad signal? it's your provider, not the phone, most likely.
Cute design, small, and really light. I recommend.
had a 6111 for about 3 months, its dire!! Signal reception is bad, its flimsy, it feels like it could break at anytime, now it squeeks when sliding up or trying to text. Memory is low (but I knew that when i bought it) Sound is low too. And if you've got long nails forget about using the 1 2 3 keys LOL
my last phone spoilt when i dropped it into the water 2 weeks ago. now i'm planning to buy a slide phone. all i want is that the phone is small enough to fit into my palm. the size of the phone matters me more than its function. so i'm planning to get this phone soon. but there are so many bad comments posted here that making me think twice to buy this phone. can someone drop some advice here that is it worth of getting this phone? if not, which phone is better with the criteria of slide phone, small in size, and some normal functions?
the worst phone ever, can't access my phonebook, switches itself off all the time, volume on loudspeaker poor, poor quality finish - menu key scratched. useless. do not buy. i am sooo disappointed in nokia
how do you put songs into this phone? ive had it for two weeks now and it awesome except the green arrow in the background that i cant get rid of and i cant get music in it. PLEASE REPLY!!!
im going to get the black nokia 6111 cause its the cheapest plan even tho i want the white one. i went on ebay to see if there are white faceplates for it and there are but im worried it isnt a licensed nokia product and it will wreck the phone! plz help someone!
i bought this phone about 1 week ago and 1 problem the screen broke but i sent it back and the replacement came the next day and since then the phone has been perfect i recomend this phone very highly
i had a nokia 6111 pink in may 2weeks later it broke, it locks up then the screen slowly fades out and turns its self off!i took it to O2 for a repair and it took 14days, i got it back and 1week later it has broke!today i took it back to the O2 shop and all he said was he was having lots of them back with same fault he could send it off for repair and if its still faulty he would give me another 6111??why would i want one because it would probaly break AGAIN so i have just brought a samsung D900 hopefully going to work!!! do NOT buy the nokia 6111 waste of money!!!
is there anyone who can help me get instant messenger on my phone? or help me put music or something on there....
The first 6111 I bought I had to return after 3 days because I could not get into my message inbox. I was getting “operation failed try again” when I try to open it. So I carried it back to the store and got back my money. Took the money and had someone buy the same 6111 from another country and bring it for me. Well that was exactly one month ago I got the phone and guess what, I cant get into my message inbox on this phone either, cant delete messages or check messages from my inbox. Because I bought it from foreign I can’t return the phone. I am stuck with a piece of junk. CAN ANYONE HELP ME FIX THE PHONE??? I think this is the worst phones nokia have ever made!
once again nokia make a handset thats not a smart phone what a let down no mp3 player no i tunes and no way to watch mobi tv its seem only the n series have thease abilitys
