Got this phone in December as I thought it look great and my old phone was getting dated (6610i). I found it very hard to use and in 2 weeks the sliding ribbon was knackered so I took it back and got the 6230i instead. I'm so glad I changed my mind, this phone is so much better!
i have the 6111 and no issues with the screen going blank
however does anyone know how to set this so the screen clears when you close the slider?
also the blue tooth dosent seem to connect automatically even tho this option is set...anyone else have this issue?
This phone has a MAJOR fault with the slider. Mine broke on new years eve - the screen goes totally white and renders the phone totally useless. Have loads of stuff stored on there and cant even get at it. There are a few bugs too - if u have a photo of a certain size on ur wallpaper, the phone keypad "sticks" (i.e. u dial 0 and it tries to acces the internet) - sometimes the screen resets itself. Also the call volume is poor.
O2 are sending me a replacement handset for free thank god - not that I really want one!!!
i have brought this phone last week and i am havin no problem what so ever .. my battery is fine and the screen ever thing i love this phone i ALWAYS have nokias and this is my best one yet !
Hey guys im just wondering how u set up internet on 6111 cause i got it set up with nokia massages u know...but when i try to go online it says something about packet data error :(....help plzz
I'm the original poster for the slider problem. Lately I have heard from many people that they're having the same problem. Nokia is not helping anyone, even though it's their fault. So I have created http://nokia6111sucks.com . I will post more info soon.
If you see this problem, let me know and I can add you to the list of people who've experienced this.
Good phone... but the only thing that limits this phone is no Card Slot (6600 & 3230 are far better phone in this respect)
does anyone know what is the maximum amount of songs that can be transferred into nokia 6111?
I was in love with this phone since june! It was only since the recent reviews and complaints i was put off. I decided to but the Nokia 6230i its a better phone e.g camera and vol plus its cheaper and has a card slot, if this phone had stronger ribbon and card slot i may be more considerable. well done anyway nokia
After reading all your reviews here I went out and bought my nokia 6111 and I have absolutely no regrets whatsoever! I've had many phones but this is by far the sexiest piece i've ever held in my hands. And for the price... whoa!!
In reply to errrrr one of the earlier posts.
The "white screen problem" happens because the ribbon is broken, not because the firmware is dodge. I really hope that we get free repair.
Hi all. My Nokia 6111 arrived today. I bought it from a UK internet site for £240.00. I am totally in love with this phone! Just hope i dont have any problems with it. If anyone is havinh probs with the keypad backlight not coming on - turn off the power saving mode in the setting menu.
Forgot to mention im in the UK. Phone cost me £250.00. Its available on contract too on some network but not on network pay as you go.
Had my 6111 for 2 weeks and only had to charge my battery 3 times! No problems with my screen! Mine is sim free and the software is original, if problems are appearing with network locked handsets you may need to check if the network has fiddled with its software. Got a 6230i aswell which is a 1.3MP camera conpared to the 1MP on the 6111. but when printing out my photos i cant notice any differnce. Great phone, shame some people are having problems.
i bought the 6111 3 days ago and i've already had to charge the battery 3 times. is anyone else's battery dieing on them so fast? all my other previous phones have been nokias and the battery lasts for over a week before it runs out.
wel after hearing from the nokia person i do hope all dese faults r fixed b4 i get it bcos i really lyk this fone. i just wait till 2006 in jan. hope it goes wel den n dat the white 1 is out
