Hi, someone asked for the pros and cons about the Nokia 6131 and since i bought it 2 weeks ago well here's my verdict.
PROS : Beautiful 16.7 mill screen believe me u'll luv it!
Nice user interface S40 seried which you can customize !!
Great sound quality from the default headphones! i was actually suprised!
Expandable memory upto 2Gb so you can store alot of stuff.
Nice fold mechanism u even have a button 'push to open' so u dont have to use both hands.
Great rubber-like paint finishing on it's body that feels good in the hand.
The outside screen is also good and it functions semi independant from the inside screen.
The wosrt camera phone i have ever used. I think Nokia were asleep when they made the camera dispite it being 1.3 megapixels. I was ssoooo disappointed! i wish someone told me before i bought it.
Poor video playback ! dispite it having multiple video format support and a 2.2 inch 16.7 mill screen the video playback is just sad!
A very nice small light weight phone good for listening to music and radio and i still think the screen is amaizing dispite the fact that it doesnt have a protective glass. But if u want it for the camra or video playback ......... search for something else please!!
another nokia.excellent phone but really boring.after a few months you look at it and want to throw it at the wall
I got this phone in January. The camara is not that good, quite grainy. Battary used up quite easily. Well it is a low end phone, can't expect too much. However the sound quality is not bad, the reciever is also fine. Functions all ok. It is a low end phone, if you don't need too much functions, this is relatively a good phone.
Need help urgently. Can someone list out the pros and cons for this phone?
Thanks in advance.
is this flip phone good? will the flip become loose very quickly after use?
hey everyone my dad has the phone but did anyone notice that the bluetooth connectivity does not connect with or accept anything from other phones????
plz plz plz guys can anyone know where we can download a free games for 6131 ( don't need web connection to download ads on mobile )
Did someone notice that camera is very poor when you take a picture in dark places or in a room with little light? In that conditions, I get some vertical lines on screen.
Like there must be a perfect light when you are taking picture???
Or is it just my phone?
looks real ugly especially when closed, its like it has a big lower lip,lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey peoples... If you want some photos about this phone using the battery BL-5C, I can send by e-mail. You have that change some parts on this battery only, no on phone. You can gain one day in comparson with this original battery BL-4C. Only that difference that will be do, is the back cover will stuf a little, but isnīt a trouble or problem.
And I am very not happy with this phone: The plastic black turn on internal display goes out with corporeal watter (head, suor). This isnīt a paint. Itīs a plastic. and the corporeal watter can demage the phone enter the internal display. Itīs very bad... bye!
I bought my 6131 last week after searching (alot) for a replacement for a Samsung Sync (A707) from Cingular. I loved the features and design of the Sync, but the reception and call quality was horrible.
The 6131, by comparison, has excellent reception - probably the best of any phone I have owned. It has a wide array of features and is designed to function and look good. I have discovered a few little quirks and offer a few solutions:
-Battery life is shorter than I would like, but I charge my phone every night anyways. When I get less than a day I will complain more.
-The outer screen is great, but probably the cause for the shorter battery life. Turn off the wallpaper, screensaver and power saver (read more below) and you will get a white screen that clearly shows time, date, and call info without turning its backlight on.
-I am running firmware 6.10 and I had a problem with the screens coming staying dark after being put into Power Saver mode. After a weekend of no lockups or screen sleep issues I have to conclude the Power Saver function is buggy and I recommend you leave it off. I still had a full battery meter yesterday after 16 hours of being on and used lightly.
-Themes. Pick a theme and leave it. If you swap themes alot you will run into profiles forgetting their tone settings.
-Memory card as storage. This works great. The 6131 will happily use the memory card to store everything that you can access on the internal phone memory (most phones I have used limit you in some way). The caveat to this is that if you take the memory card out, it will revert custom settings in the profiles to default (it seems to remember individual ringtones, but I have tried to edit one of these options with the card out )
That's about all right now. I am generally very happy with this phone and as long as the battery situation doesn't get worse I will hold onto this phone for awhile.
Other phones I have used: Sony Ericsson candy bar phone (no idea the model number, 5 years ago at least), Moto V600, Moto V551, Samsung T809, Moto V3i, Samsung Sync (A707), Nokia 6131.
I think that battery is very bad.
I have to charge Nokia 6131 every night.
If I use it a lot the battery last no more than 12 hours.
I have really disappointed with N 6131
HELP, HELP, HELP YOU MOBILE TECHIES!

Hi, I bought a 6131 in Ireland and brought to Brazil.....It is supposed to be Sim Free...but
everyday it comes up with Restricted and I can't manage to upgrade the firmware using bluetooth.
Anyone got any suggestions? How to solve the problem of being restricted and how to update the firmware (hoping that would solve the problem)
Had mine a wile now camera aint briliant but acceptable iv had 6233 6280 and 6300 an find the 6131 the best of the bunch buy 1 u wont regret it il b stickin wiv mine 4 a long time!
z 6131 can connect to sony ericsson & car kit via bluetooth with firmware 3.70. To conect to motorola and all, u`ll need firmware 6.10. to update to 6.10, u`ll need to buy the usb cable or u cab have it updated by z nokia representative in ur country.
hope i replied to some of ur questions, dont hesitate to ask me for further questions and opinions. ciao.
