The Nokia 6131 has the potential to be one of the most sort after phones on the market today. It has a great grip, ergonomically speaking, the phone is fantastic. It has everything that the multimedia power user wants in a small hand held device. While Nokia has improved on the size and weight of the phone without having to compromise the features, the battery life needs to be compensated for the added features the phone has to offer. Phones have evolved a lot in the last five years and the battery power to fuel the features of these modern phones has not and if its one thing I know Nokia for is its standards for long battery usage.
However with the Nokia 6131, unfortunately the battery can hinder the impact it can have on the market. One of my suggestions that I have for Nokia is to introduce an expansion pack for the phone. This can include a bigger battery (or an improved battery) with the rear cover casing that can fit directly onto the current 6131, without the user having to replace the entire phone. Or introduce a Nokia 6131i, the exact phone with a better battery life and more internal memory. I don’t think that users would mind a phone with the amazing features of the 6131 with a little weight added to it.

gerwin > You buy a mini SD card. You get an extra 1 GB for around 40 USD.
ey thanks pal, just actually read your post...well i may probably buy this phone but if i do have enough budget, i might as well have the black version of n70..how about for a sony ericsson phone, what can you suggest?
I know this might sound stupid but how can i buy more memory, where and for how much??

yes, you can reject calls when the phone is closed... you press the volume key (doesn't matter which one) for about 2 secs
I wouldn´t call the low internal storage a problem when you can insert a MiniDS up to 2GB. The rather weak battery is a problem, and why doesn´t the external turn off when you are using the internal display? It seems to be a waiste of battery. In any case, I get 3 full days with 20 messages a day and 10 min talk, I should get a week with such a low use, like my old Nokia 6220 did.
A decent, low-medium end handset,
unwise choice to combine a very weak battery to two very impressive displays,
what a waste this phone has became without the use of a decent cam to take advantage of those high consumtion screens,
the ridiculus internal memory and transfer problems totaly amputate it as a multimedia device,
its that Nokia cant present a decent phone only in the dimensions of the N90...
...is it possible to reject the call without opening this phone?
There is something intrinsically wrong with the supplied HS-23 headset.
The volume adjusts itself upwards and cannot be re-adjusted and the phone keypad freezes after a few minutes of usage with the headset attached. This happened to two separate HS-23 headsets used on my phone. It also happened on my friend's 6131. The problem does not occur when a HS-3 headset is used instead. Anyone has the same problem?
Baught this phone after reading the review here and am quite satisified with this amazing phone. The s/w is very fast and there are lot of minute features hidden. Apart from low battery n avarage camera,there is no problem at all!!. BTw, did anyone notice that the camera is angled a bit in the opposite direction of flap??Great thinking by Nokia.
can this phone play music while typing sms ?meaning minimize the mp3 player while opening other applications
Hey there! I just sold off my 6230i (but still keeping my 6230 as backup). I'd probably buy a 6131 by next week...
Looking fwd to exchange notes, tips and tricks with other 6131 owners out there =D
maybe your friend got a symbian nokia... those phones have included cable and cd (i guess... i mean all of my friends who have or had a 60 series nokia got a cable and a cd)
as for the 6131... i didn't get a cable or a cd (the last one can be solved by downloading the soft from the nokia site)
to the owners of this phone:
i've tried to transfer some pictures from my phone to 2 motorola (v535 and v3) via bluetooth and it didn't work. i tried to receive some files from them but no results...
anyone had this problem before?
Just got my 6131. Two things. I got no connection cable and no CD! A friend who recently got another Nokia model got both these things with his phone - what about you other 6131 owners? Did you get a connection cable and/or CD with your phone? It does not say what is supposed to be included with the phone.
