(RE: SJ - The first charge of the battery needs to be at least 8 hours and you still wont have full battere charge until the battery has completely discharged and then charged a couple of times. It needs wearing in.)
It still doesn't work, so I took it back to the Carphone Warehouse on Wednesday and they have ordered me in a new handset, which i'm going to make them test before they send me away with it this time!! Lol. SJ x
hey I Bought this phone 2 days ago I and like it very much. My one has no problems, and I hope it wont! lol =) anyway the only negative thing about it is that the glossy black back side of the phone gets scratched very easily because the material is very sensitive and that makes me crazy!!so if u cant decide what colour to buy get the silver or pink one, but the black one is still the most chic one !
I have had the Nokia 6111 for a few days now and I just can understand all the negative things that people are saying about it? It looks GREAT! Slides open and closed very easily! And this size of it! Well, very sexy indeed! It is a phone that EVERYONE admires, male AND female! It is not the most sophisticated phone on the market but who wants all that in a mobile phone? In my opinion I would tell everyone if they are thinking about buying this phone to go ahead and buy it!
BTW - Anyone brave enough to copy this whole page of complaints to Nokia who insist (seriously lol!) that there's been no adverse comments made to them!?
Just a thought! :oD
I did really want this phone as it's a pretty one at last for us girls (in the pink) until I read these reviews. I am a little perplexed though :o/
I'm sure Nokia can't afford to deliberately put all these phones out if they're faulty, only to get them all back, perhaps th first lot out had the problem, and the rest are ok, as I've emailed Nokia twice and they have not recalled them or intend to.
What d'ya think guys? T x
i went to the carphonewarehouse and they said there were alot of problems with this phone, is this true and those of you who have it tell me what it is like... i want 1
Get rid of your 6111. It has a major defect, that's why they didn't get it out on time. The ribbon cable connecting the two parts of the phone breaks easily and with time. Also Nokia knows that and its warranty does not recognise these default. It's one of the worst phone Nokia has put on the market for a long time from the technical side. Buy the Samsung instead.
I have had mine for over a month now and I love it to bits. No problem with features and battery life or ribon, etc... screen quality and usability are very good. A very stylish phone and very good working. I don't understand why some people complain!
nice phone, but alot of problems with the slide mechanism catching and ripping the ribbon that connects the circut board to the screen. wolud recomend the samsung D600 or D500 if you want a good slide phone.
I have had my 6111 since it first came out and i love it.. the features are great, the sliding mec does not screech or make a noise and i have had no problems with batt life or anything.. No downfalls to buying this phone and you will be extremly happy with it.. Dont listen to all the other reviews they probably dont even own a 6111.. good job Nokia..
How do you what is the time when u recieve a sms? i m having a big problem with this. And whether there is a filmware to be installed or what? Can anybody help me please. Thanks
expensive phone..u better buy SE W550i, Samsung D500, or wait for Nokia 7370.. This phone is overpriced..W550i & D500 beat this phone in almost every aspect yet it's even expensive..though im sure d price will fall dramatically in the next few months..but at this time this phone is OVERPRICED..it shouldnt cost more than Us $200.00..
My friend just bought one yesterday. Nice looking phone, but it makes a kind of grinding noise when you push the screen to open the phone. Definitely there is a problem with the sliding mecanism
Well, I just want to say thanks to everyone who's been posting on this forum thing recently. I got my 6111 at xmas but read the reviews after I'd got it as it was a present etc. So when the stupid thing started making a disturbing clicking sound when I pushed the screen up I knew that its life expectancy had plummeted to Not Very Long. After three days of this sound, I pushed it up just now and the screens gone completely. If you hear a clicking sound on your phone please *please* save all your numbers immediately while it still works. Other than it now not working at all, it had plenty of glitches before then as mentioned by other people here. For example, resetting itself, and not letting you use the 0 key when you have a photo as wallpaper.
All in all, not a happy bunny with Nokia.
SJ - The first charge of the battery needs to be at least 8 hours and you still wont have full battere charge until the battery has completely discharged and then charged a couple of times. It needs wearing in.
I've had mine on for 2 days with limited talk time but have been playing games and have only just lost the first slice of battery.
Mark Burton - The video will record longer than 10secs. Check video setting and set video clip length to maximum.
Donna - has now stopped screeching thank god, must have worn itself in.
actually i really dying to get this phone but after i saw the specs i must say camera is ok but not the memory space of the phone...really so angry when i heard nokia say this phone is design for woman...i must say nokia is stupid...cant guys aim for this phone??? if guys also buy this phone this will also means they earn more right??
