Reading the posts I can sympathise with all those having problems.
Current 6111 handset I own is the third one in three weeks since my upgrade. First two handsets would not turn on after the sim card is inserted, some problem with sim registration I got told by Carphone Warehouse and its a problem with this model of nokia! - Wheather anyone's fixing the problem, is a different matter all together. Seems to me like Carphone warehouse in conjunction with Nokia is turning a blind eye!
Secondly battery life is appalling. Battery lasts less than 3 days on mine (normal use not even playing games or using WAP) and this is after following reccomendations to charge the battery for at least 12 hours before first use.
Does anyone have the same problem with battery life?
I don't think there are big improvements from 3.41 to 3.45. But if someone can put the changelist online here...
With my (second) 6111 my problem is about the battery length.
Last time: two days of life, with normal use (maybe a little of games...), and turned off @ night. It's to little for me!
im planning to get this phone soon , but after reading all the malfunctions and about how the battery life is crap, im planning to doubt whether this is a good phone or not. anyone still having the problems?
Yeah I know, thats why I asked if someone got the change file of the new Firmware V3.45
It's now available at the Nokia Service Points. It woulde be nice if someone can post the changes?
Is not all that easy to understand what's written in that link, Cruz! :D
I read that for the Nokia 6111 a new Firmware is available:
Has anyone got the Change-file and can post it here?
Obvious there is something wrong with the N6111. It was planned before X-Mas 2005. But still now it's hardly to get one.
Well, Nokia 6111 is good as sony ericsson's sets but one bad thing in it is memory of phone calls which are only 10. too lil memory, but set is fantastic
I emailed Nokia too and got the same standard reply so I think that they're refusing to acknowledge the complaints - more fool them :o/
I have been reading the comments about this phone on a few sites, so I asked Nokia about the problems - "is there a duff batch of phones" etc
This is the reply I got yesterday:-

Perhaps you should all email your details of the problems as Nokia do not know about them!

@ Wolvesfanette (Re: themes)
It depends on what you think is "nice"... I downloaded plenty of themes, so there might be some you like! ;)
Hi! I can tell you, that Pink-one is comin out Finland in 23Jan. You can visit site http://www.gsmmaailma.fi/index.php?page=2&pid=1036
got my nokia 6111 for xmas and have been rly pleased with it up until now. all of a sudden i got a message saying 'sim registration failed' and it will not let me make calls or send texts. its not a problem with the sim as it works fine in other phones. can any1 help or should i just send the phone back to nokia for repair? thanks
Well in The Netherlands it was planned to be released 2 weeks ago, but Nokia recalled all the 6111 due to bugs The Phonehouse Netherlands said this to me!
It might be sold begin february. But some shops are selling a few but very hard to get. And only in Black. I think if you buy the silver or pink version you might have got a better version. Because these colors are not available yet, or hardly to get!!
Well I bit the bullet and bought a black one. I compared to the LG and the 6111 was just so nice to hold.
Mind you the woman in the shop had informed me she had had 4 back with faults, so they had tested the rest of their stock, and this one seemed ok.
You are right the black is a lot nicer than I thought it would be. I am wondering whether to cancel my pink one.
Apparently, that was the problem with the other 4 in the shop. I think it must be random.
Touch wood, mine charged ok and I have had it on for 1 hour without any battery loss so far, but will keep you posted.
Anyone found any nice free themes?
I love the nokia 6111 and had my eye on it for months. Its a great phone.........when it works!!!!!
Here are the faults i have had with mine.
Got one of first ones on the day it was launched.
Worked fine for 3 weeks then keypad wouldn't dial normal numbers. It kept going straight to shortcuts eg 0 to wap and 1 to voicemail.
I took it to O2 shop and they said I had changed settings. I new I hadn't! As they had no members of staff trained on the 6111 they sent me to ask the on-site Nokia engineer in "carphone warehouse". He immediatley said it was a fault with the firmware. I rang O2 and they sent me another one out within 4 days.
Got my new phone on Tues and opened the box. Didnt even put sim or battery in because when I slid the phone up the slider was catching on the keys on the left of the pad and grinding the numbers. Not good!
I rang O2 straightback and they tried to talk me into a different phone saying they had had alot of these back. I just said no and will go for one more Nokia 6111 and hope for the best.
If the 3rd one is faulted I guess I will go for another handset. Maybe I'm just unlucky!
Just to add - O2 said they will refund me for everyday I have been without my handset.
So I'm due a free upgrade and fancy the look of the 6111. Been on numerous sites and hearing some good/eports. O2 have told me they are waiting for new stock so will this fix the problems? Anyone have problems with the sliding mechanism, does it get very loose?? Please advise b4 I sign up for my 18 month contract!!!
