The cover of the phone took lots of scratches in several days but I was saving my phone out of them...my siemens looks better in 6 months...if i knew i wount buy this phone...
I ahve also had this phone for a week now . I have changed phones so many times- as I did notlike the OS of many of the brands .I have finally come home to nokia after not having a Nokia phone since my N70 last December . The more I use this phone the better it seems .I have tried HARD to like the other brands but no OS comes close to the Series 40 3rd Edition.The ease of use is superb and I am very hard to please ! The SMS is great. The meail client is OK - ish but still excellent- it downloads complete messages .like i said earlier- I got sick of smartphones with useless applications.This is a fun phone with great usability and excellent phonebook .Yes, Samsung phones have 1000 contacts fixed andyou can enter 5 tel nos .per contact but you can't enter a postal address or a web address - ever .How many people do you know have 5 tel numbers ?
The Nokia 6125 is a highly underrated phone in my opinion and not reviewed at all.The 6131 has had all the acclaim though I am very suspicious of the soft screen that the 6131 has - see the mobile-review.com review if you are thinking of getting the 6131.The soft screen is under protected and fragile compared to the 6125.
This phone fits my hand perfectly, not too bulky and not too tiny. It's got a nice weight which doesn't mean too heavy or too light. I love the keypad, so easy for a quick sms.
Hi "nat" Please tell me ... Does the phone feel bulky in your hand!! 23mm is little thick!!
Yes, Nokia 6125 does have a calculator. It also has a very convenient converter and much more. :)
I had this phone for a week now. It's a very good phone. It's relatively light compared to other phones that are as loaded as this one. Bluetooth works great! Keypad is very convenient to use. Menus and interface are very user friendly and you can find your way around even without reading the manual (for the most part). Camera is a lower quality; it's only 1.3 mp. However, I didn't buy this phone for camera; I already have a good camera. For downloading stuff from PC I have to get another cable because the one I have for my old Nokia doesn't work with this phone. The sound quality is absolutely great and very loud if you like it this way (of course you can adjust the volume to fit your taste and needs.) Overall it's a good reliable phone with many nice and easy to use features. I like it!!! :)
This phone packs a lot of suprise - even to an ex-6230i and ex-W800, W550 user like me. It's been such a great productivity tool for my business and personal life. Here are some goodies...
1) Active Standby is great! I can see all of my meeting in one go. and play my mp3 player immediately.
2) Browsing via Mini.Opera.Com is superb, eventho the display is just 128x160, the fonts can be set so small and readable.
3) SUPERB music player. Superb sound quality (using aftermarket earphone, i use Philips). Best part - it can play via individual folder, which mean, each folder is equivalent to a 'playlist'. BEST part: music can be fast-fwded and rewinded =D
4) Phonebook 1000, mine current contacts is 610, so, this is just great. All of the contacts are synchronzed to my Microsoft Outlook.
5) Synch ease - i use infraRed coz it can be hooked to my laptop effortlessly, and it synchs meeting, notes and todo list - FAST.
6) Fast operating system, browsing within the files in the phone is fast, even with pics amounting to 500Kb.
7) File manager system is better than ever, you can "mark" files, to either move it, or delete it.
8) COnstruction of the phone is solid.
9) you can add LOTS of shortcuts on the main screen, min of 14, to a max of... LOTS.
10) One of the best keypad i've ever used.
Cons? Well, here's some:
1) 128x160pixel display? That is SO outdated.
2) I can't get the battery to last me more than 48hrs on a single charge, maybe coz it's still new, i dunno.
All in all, the pro outweighs the cons.. by a thousand mile. this is probably remain as my phone for the next year. no regrets.
its a reall neat fone...it supports mp3...has its own mp3 player..1.3mp camera wit video recordin..blutooth v2...micro SD card support...connects wit the usb cable really well...over all a work of art..and its pretty cheap also..a must buy....
Can anyone tell me if this can be synced via iSync on a mac? I really need to know!
This phone is just great!
I saw some questions here.
The phone camera has 8x digital zoom, some effects for photos and videos(non-true colours, negative and more), it also has compabity with mp3.
For example, I set an mp3 file as my ring.
Also, I liked the radio very much.
I bought this phone - 6125 yesterday afternoon.It was a toss up between this and the 6131.
Howver, the 6131 is too fragile - re. the soft screen and the overall build quality .
This is a really good mid range phone. It uses the Series 40 3rd Edition - the new edition ( non symbian ) .
The thing I wanted to know MOST was the capacity of the phone book .Well, folks- you can get 1000 contacts in it if you have to because I have over 310 contacts in it now and I have 75% storage left for more contacts. The phonebook is good allowing 3 email address,2 postal addresses- a real improvement on the old series 40 phonebooks.
True- the 6131 has 16 millions colours for its screen resolution but really - it is not practical .The screen is soft and easlit damaged. As a previous poster said - check out the very thorough review on the 6131 at mobile-review.com. The 6125 is definitely more hardy .
Well this phone has the latest Bluetooth protocol 2.0 and it works well .I have transfered all my contacts and pictures via bluetooth and no cable is really needed. Bluetooth does drain the battrey so for this reason I will get my own cable for transfers .
Build Quality - there are a few creaks along the top of the back cover.Nokia used to be so well built but I feel the quality is cheaper these days compared to Samsung and SE.Saying that- it still feels fine.
I got sick of my smart phones and I wanted something with some personality .This little phone has it.
This phone is value for money.
can any one tell what is the operating system of this phone,and if some one already have it tell me ur general idea about it!!!???
does this phone's camera have zoom. if so how big. also is the camera on itable to record videos, and does it have mp3 compatibility
correction to my post below... the display for 6125 is 128x160 o-n-l-y
Just got myself this phone. I was using a 6230i before this and was looking a worthy phone to replace it. 6131 was on top of my list but the design is too feminine and the 320x240 display is not protected (see mobile-review.com). So, I had to do away with 6125, so far, I'm happy with the phone and have got used to the fact that the display is just 170+ x 220+ pixel only. Oh well, the features are good. I'll post more findings as I keep using the phone.
