owww, im missin my nokia 6170, It was the most durable phones i ever had, it never failed to work it never hanged, never been broken to bring it to service, and i never replaced the battery since 2004, when it first came out. but I dont have it now any longer, my mom bought me a nokia 2680 slide and nokia 2630 which i am using right now. and she get my nokia 6170, so now im missin it. but its fine, dis phone, it gave me perfect service, from 2004 up to sept of 2008. =)
it`s really a nice phone,i`m so proud for it,but i think it needs additional memory .
we have recently purchased a freeloader solar charger for our brand new all singing all dancing itouch and it works perfect for charging the itouch but alas it does not charge my 6170 .is there anyone else having the same problem
this is an overall great phone if you could only make use of all the features (PTT, email, IM, etc) and if they managed to put external memory since 2.2MB shared memory is not really enough even for just contacts. i've had this phone for 3 years already.
Not a good phone.
Holds about 10 photos and comes with a bunch of junk that wastes the little space it has.
It's such a dull phone, grey and black is gross and there's pretty much no colour when using it.
I am using this fantastic phone and I think Nokia should use the battery and component development of this model on other models also. Its so strong and can withstand any kind of situation. I love this phone....
This phone in once is best,of other phones:
that is theyr "KEYBOARD"
very nice & very easy & very good handly
it's a good phone. i am so satisfy with it. inspite of i have it for 3 years, i havent ever chenged it's bottery(belive me).
I still have mine from almost 3 years ago and I think it's a lovely phone although it is now beginning to show its age. This phone has survived almost 3 years of HARD knocks and still works like an absolute charm. I want to upgrade to a N82 or N96 but we'll see. In my opinion, nothing beats a Nokia.
A nice phone though very heavy to carry around.
I've been with one for almost three years but its now worn out. Very expensive to change the housing despite it being kind of plastic.Well, i don't regret having it. It looks cool and expensive which technically is of poor quality.
The best 'phone there just about.
Really excellent excellent telephone.
Nokia - check. Steely finish - check. Flip (active) cell - check. Big buttons - check. Big easy-read screen - check, & standard 'Low' ringing tone - check.
This portable phone is the best. Brilliant, had it 3 or 4 years. Cannot recommend it enough. Sturdy and inexpensive. Natural to use.
If you want a camera, buy one. If you want a radio, go & buy one, if you want a music player...
Nokia 6170 - brilliant unit. After a loooong time the speaker can go (where the person can hear you but you can't hear them), but they are a pound or 2 on eBay.
Dial *#06# for the IMEI number, & *#0000# for the software version, as it is with any Nokia. Imagine this company started out making rubber wellington boots and car tyres, & now produce the best battery phones.
At first I did not appreciate this phone a lot,but it is very easy to use and very durable.I just hate the fact replacing the case is too expensive!crap!but still,love it!
I have it for 3 years now and I must say it's a GOOD phone even though I was angry with its lack of memory at first and I NOW have problems with the fact that sometimes I can't hear anything- but that's all, no other problems what so ever.
After a year of using that phone here are my opinions:
- love the design, phone is beautifull
- just broke, I hear no voice, except when on speakerphone,
- "steel" design is only cheap paint that wears off easily
- 2MB is useless
- scraches easily
- basically I would have never buy it if I knew
this phone's really nice.i've had it for a while now,a year.the features,suck.camera and all.the design of the phone is really nice,but the features killed it.
It's a beautiful phone but bad things happen to it ... I have one so here are the problems :
1. The case is made o plastic, covered with some kind of steel . The plastic part breaks very easy is u drop it on something solid .
2. The designers were drunk when they made it . So, you have mp3 and aac player on 2.2 MB of memory with no card .
3. Your buttons will remain printed on the screen after a while .
4. The outer control buttons get messed up pretty quick . Volume doesn't work anymore for me .
5. For some reason de gray shiny part around the main screen gets ripped and looks bad .
If you just want to talk and look cool, buy it, if you have bigger plans leave this one .
