i used this kind of phone for several months.. actually at firs it is quiet good but now i discovered that the battery is low..
its always low batt even if you dont use it..
maybe its because it has double screen
The Nokia 6131 is a sleek wonderful phone, but u've get 2 be careful in handling else u loose ur phone. Enjoy the feel of it on ur palm!

can any one tell me about its battery? how long does it take to discharge?
I love this phone i upgraded the firmware ando work flawless, the camera is the only fault but i don't care is a phone .. i have my canon rebel xt for that la labor, excellent phone!! with a 2Gb microSD 1.5 Gb in music 500MB in games rulez!!
It is a very nice in the midclass phone,very good innovation in series 40 in nokia, just press the side button then the phone will open out,i have this for 2years it still works perfectly,even i use it frequently i never repaired the flex of this phone.
And i have it with 1GB card with no hangs. screen resolutions are good (like in latest phones), the keys are comfortable,soft,easy to press keypad, i has a good sound in media player when you use hs-23 headset.. the cons of this is the battery life.,maybe it is for only in calls/text not for music phone.of youonly use it for texting only it can last for 2 days.
the camera is one of the good 1.3megapixel camera.
it has elegant design,conservative (maybe bacause of the combination of gray,black,silver color).
just keylock it to prevent the accidental press of camera key when it in your pocket or somewhere.
Other say it is not a good phone but if you compare it in other series 40 phones it is one of the best, if you want a simple phone.This one is for you.
8/10 - coz of the camera - 1.3 megapixel and the battery life - not for music phone.
I've had the Nokia for about 2 years now until last week it decided to break into two pieces (the bottom half hinge separated from the screen).
I took it to my local Nokia repair centre and was quoted $40 for them to asses the problem, and after that i would get a quote for repairs. I declined. It was a perfect opportunity to get a new phone.
- Big bright screen (16m colours)
- Nice key pad
- Inbuilt browser was nice, due to the big screen.
- Battery life is terrible
- Inbuilt space is a miesally 11MB (i put 2 songs and it was already full). Yes, you can get a microSD card, but still it should be somewhere in the 200mB-500mB range.
- Music player isn't up to todays standards, headphone jack is very annoying
- Video recording time limitation
- Flip mechanism can be troublesome, and may break after use
- Medicroe camera
- Silver plastic edges show scratches easily
- The large screen is exposed, and can get damaged quiet easily
Overall it was a very solid phone and did its job quite well. I am now a happy brand new owner of the iPhone, and whilst this phone pales in comparaison it was a good phone in its time.
i hate this phone.i had this phone for about a year now.and the flip has broke into two.plus,the camera sucks,music player is not loud as i wanted to.but the keypad is comfortable for me to texting.i really hate this phone.now my 6131 cannot be used anymore bcos it has broken in two.haha.i laughed when it split.cos i really2 hate this phone u know.and i prefer sony ericsson rather than nokia :DD seriously, i recomend u guys not to buy this phone.its not a good phone.but its a terible phone and i hate it.hahahahahahaha.i bought w810i for a month now.it's a very good phone.i salute sony ericsson! :DD

The camera button is easily pressed by accident, putting the camera on standby and draining the battery. This happens if the phone is in my pocket or even the holder. I'd never have this style of phone again.

i had the 6131 for around 3 months.
personally, i think the phones is mediocre.
the screen is fantastic, the buttons are decently sized for convenient texting.
the problems i found were that the camera was a bit poor, the opening button is gimicky (no real use at all. the spring will flip it open if you pry it open with one finger anyway), the buttons on the side (mainly the on/off and the camera buttons) can be easily pressed which can be irritating, the battery life SUCKS, the music player SUCKS, the headphones SUCK, the plug for the headphones can also be irritating, whenever you take the memory card out and put it in again, the settings like wallpaper and ringtones reset which is overlly annoying.
so overall, not a good phone. i'd recommend sony ericssons =) i've currently got the W800i and it's worked like a charm.
6131 is great, i think it's an excellent phone, when it comes down to the headset, it's uncofortable and cable is too short!!
does anyones have same problems with the headset??how'd nokia could do somntheing that short??and the part that goes in your ears are too big,for my ears at least..so, as a result of this, i can not use the phone to listening some music...
i couldn't install the software in my pc, that's the olnly problem i have... =(
emynousy, 19 Aug 2008what about bad bluetooth? it is very very bad . the worest bluetooth Hey the bluetooth is exellent !!!
there is problem only with Samsung and LG.
Hi you guys having a problem with the Opera browser. I had the same problem until I changed provider. I was on a Tesco`s pay-as- you-go tariff but because I wanted free internet browsing I changed to a sim only contract with o2, as I wanted to put the sim in this phone. Since then it`s worked fine and I get 1,000 texts, 600 minutes and a free bolt on of unlimited internet browsing for £25.00 a month. Since it`s a sim only contract I`m not tied to a fixed contract but a rolling month to month one.
I have had this phone for 12 months now and it`s super. Great for texting and downloading via infra red if you don`t want to install the PC Suite. The Opera browser 4 works well and I am very pleased with it. The only niggles are the battery life isn`t that great, but what do you expect with such a large screen and you need a memory card as it only has a small phone memory. Overall a very nice phone.
i had nokia 6131 from 3 months
