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!!!
John - What was the battery like after the first 2 weeks that you mentioned? So far since its second charge mine has lasted 3 days and is only now showing half a battery which is good. What do other people get for charge on this phone?
Wolves - I too was the same about getting the pink one but couldn't wait so got the black one instead and i absolutely love it. It still looks really sleek and stylish!
just got 2nd replacement 6111 from O2. Have to send this one back as well. Phone will not turn on (same fault as first)
Anyone having same problems?
I upgraded from to the Nokia 6111 and received it yesterday and charged it for 12 hours! To my disappointment after only 30 minutes of use today, the phone doesnt work any more. When i try to turn it off it asks for the pin code and then turns its self off. I am really disappointed!!
Oops - meant Tuesday 17th.
Dunno if this is a completely new and improved batch - hope so though.
I've got a 6170 at the moment which is pretty good and hope the 6111 matches it.
Monday 16th Jan :) thanks very much. Does this also mean that they are preventing the sales of the old batch?
I've just been on the phone to O2 re: upgrading to this handset.
They told me to ring back on Monday 17th January when they get their new stock in
Despite reading the not so favourable comments on this phone, I'm still considering opting for it for my upgrade. I'm getting it free of charge so not overly worried.
However, just out of curiosity, as a texter I'm curios to know how many it holds........
Thanks Nokia, you guys are lucky.
I have found out today that the Pink N6111 isnt due in UK until March.
Carphone Warehouse has exclusive rights on the pink one and they have informed me today that Nokia have informed them the pink one will be delayed until March, and they havent been able to even give any date on the silver one.
Looks like I will be buy the black one cos I cant wait till March.
May even buy the LG S5200 instead.
It's now direct available in The Netherlands at http://www.gsmtrack.nl
I ordered the Silver Grey color so i've to wait a bit longer :-(
I think the BENELUX-countries are the last countries where the phone is now available. I hope the have adjusted some hardware-bugs. The Software will be same V 3.41 I think.
this fone is quite stylish n sellable but bout the memory inside is too small to put in anything s specially mp3 n images.it's even better if the camera is 2mp. unlucky tis fone is not os symbian...
Since Nokia 6111 hasn't had a memory card, i wonder how many pictures can we take before we need to transfer the pictures to our laptop?
I had the same problem too, for the two weeks when my phone worked. A full charge would only last one day, with no pictures and average call time.
features are ok. no much change. but i think this time nokia has forgotten about the memory slot. not enough internal memory
the phone is ok, apart from a few times it re starts itself and asks me if i want to start phone with out sim!! takes a few goes to get the phone back on and working, battery life for me seems great, far better then a Samsung D600 i used to have
Thanks for that Cruz. I have always followed their advice and only charged my phone up once it has been fully discharged. I was just surprised that it lasted such a short period of time for it's first charge when it didn't have much activity. After reading everything else about peoples problems with the phone it kinda made me a bit more worried that this is a permanent problem with the battery, i guess i shall see.
Abouth the Battery,
Your device is powered by a rechargeable battery. The full performance of a new battery is achieved only after two or three complete charge and discharge cycles. The battery can be charged and discharged hundreds of times but it will eventually wear out. When the talk and standby times are noticeably shorter than normal, replace the battery. Use only Nokia approved batteries, and recharge your battery only with Nokia approved chargers designated for this device.

I upgraded free to this phone on Saturday and charged it for the recommended 12 hours and so started using it yesterday morning. All i've done is had a slight play with it and adjusted some settings and the battery died on me this morning when i got to work (Monday morning)! My partner and i had read previously that the battery didn't last very long but we put that down to peoples different degrees of use. I've just charged the phone again and turned it on hoping that the charge lasts longer this time and was wondering if anyone else had experienced this problem, and also if it is just because the battery is new and needs to get used to holding charge or if it is a fault!?
