This is the most beautiful phone ever made. Great display, big keys, button to answer with one hand... I have it for 15 months and it works just perfectly. I accidently dropped it several times and nothing happened. It`s undestroyable :)This is the best phone I have ever had.
kitty, 24 Jun 2008i found this phone easy to use, great size buttons makes texting a breeze. i really loved it. ... moreSame thing happened to me, Keys freeze up, phone turns itself on and off and it has only been about a year since I bought the phone.Will not buy this model again. Will stay with Nokia as I do like thier products and have since 1996.
I have owned nokia phones all my life and loved every one of them, but this is by far the worse phone I have ever had. I have had 3 identical phones now and every one of them was horrible, stay away from this particular phone and go with anything else from nokia, TRUST ME!!!
I have to open the phone twice to get it to start. It shuts down if I try to send a picture. It freezes from time to time and I have to take battery out and start again. The battery does not last long if you are using the phone - Photos - esp. those taken at night have very poor quality. I am not happy with the phone.
hello every body!! i have this phone now since 6 month...and he is a very good phone..easy to use and fun with special button..good screen...high qualite of sound...nice design....but one bad think ..is the camera..just 1.3 mpx :(
but it s okey i use nokia 6131 and nokia 6230i
i like them...best for me!!
i found this phone easy to use, great size buttons makes texting a breeze. i really loved it. BUT. after about 12 months (just after warranty, hah), it now stuffed up. turns on and off by itself- without me pressing anything, buttons freeze, screen freezes.
took it in to be fixed and apparently it's quite a common problem with the 6131.
its a shame cuz i quite liked this phone, but it's unreliable. horrible.
i've had this phone since september 07, though i gave up using it like a month into it, reasons being:
battery life SUCKS
music player SUCKS
opening mechanims SUCKS
build quality SUCKS
probably due to my liking of playing music, it rinsed the battery, but never-the-less, the music player is really bad.
the opening mechanism is just a gimmick, there's no point in using it at all.
the flip and joints are lousy, they wobble.
however, the phone does have good points:
good screen resolution.
im now back to using my old trusty W800i. haha. seriously, dont bother buying the 6131, its not worth it.
great phone love the larger keys, easy to use, could do with a better camera tho...

I bought this cell phone 10 months ago and I can say I'm totaly satisfied.
First of all I was looking for a cell phone that could cover the following parameters:
1)Flexibility in settings.
2)Connectivity (Bluetooth AND InfraRed.Now,I know most of the people don't use IRDA but it was useful for me.Plus, many other phones that are high much more expensive than this phone, don't give you this option).
3)MP3/Music Player.Fully satisfied for a cell phone player.Nice equilizer and some other settings that didn't disapoint me.
4)Camera.(camera's capabilities rate to medium levels.I'm satisfied with still images that I capture, but video res. is a little bit disapointing.
a)Nice audio performance.Loud and clear as possible for its little speaker.
b)Ok,now many other cell phones fell into my hands in the past.So, I believe that the option of multiple file marking for transferring or deleting or... is so important to mention here.I see that many other new phones give you now this feature(in the past few of them did)...So, it is also an other ability of this phone that satisfies flexibility that I was looking for.
c)Very good screen res.Both of the screens.
a)Small amount of memory.Only 11MB as this site stated in review section.But I've installed a 512MB Micro SD Card and storage problem solved.
b)Screen has no glass cover or something in front.You have to be careful not to jam it because it's kinda easy to brake.
c)Battery's stand-by time lasts for 1 1/2 days or 2 days maximum.Note that when you play sounds or mp3's from loudspeaker,it drops to 1 or 1/2 day,it depends.
A small reply to user : emy.
Go to Settings-->Call and there turn "Summary after call" to ON.If this is what you mean.Other than that,you can't see anything on screen after a while when talking because
screen turns black(off)for having less power consumption.I hope that helped.
i bought this telephone since 3 months
i donot find any wrong in it
as i said before, i got it 3 days ago.
as going with Nokia tradition, i believe it will not break before 6 years time.
mark my words i will repost in 6 years if it is still working. ;) in the meantime everyone, buy this phone while its cheap. its great.
lol who would charge their phone for 12 hours.
it says on the manual charge for just 2hours 20mins
i got mine 3 days ago and i think it is the most AWESOME phone on this planet for this price ($AUS150)
nothing matches it in spec, it looks great, feels great (grippy), and its screen is truly amazing.
