I bought my nokia 6170 about one and half year ago and I must confess that it never gave me any trouble. I am a hotelier and always found my nokia handy anywhere in the world. It depends how you use the mobile, you cannot put it in a tight jeans. My daughter has changed three mobiles in the same period I have mine. My 6170 may not be pretty but very user friendly and always there when I need help.
as i read the opinions os all the ppl who own or owned this phone i start to realise that 6170 realy has problems.i had problems with installing java games.sometimes the memory freezes and i had to delete all the gemes put in and take out the battery for a few mins.i was called a few times and i couldn't hear the caller althou they could hear me.i think nokia started to throw phones on the market without proper testing them just to cover all the needs.with problems and all it seems that ppl still enjoy nokia but with some regrets.i realy would advice nokia engineers and designers to take their time and try to make some phones that can satisfi a larger group of ppl not necesary by design but by performance and durability.something good made and thought about it.better materials ion the places that realy matter.i still can belive that nokia ppl didn't saw that the display would rest on the keypad...that was dum
hi am from romania and i sell mobiles for a living...about 8 mounts i bought this pfone for myself couse i liked it and it was the best that i could afford.the 2.4 mb of memory realy stresed me out throut the use,by now no trouble with the keypad(i only heard about this problem here actualy).but i know about the keypad scratching the display cover,and i also saw thw clients who bought the phone that had trouble with the coil from the clemshell.the phone was blocked open or closed and couldn't be moved in any way.i hope in the future nokia designers will learn to avoid at least the obvious problems.this phone with 10mb and 1mm between the dispay and keypad would be gr8
i've had the fone for about two years and by now it's run its life, the buttons apparently are glued onto a pad and now they're starting to come off one by one. the inside plastic covering the reflecting faux-chrome is starting to "speck" off. but i loved it while i had it in prime condition. i think the camera is also misaligned now it doesn't really focus as well as it use to but i prefer they kept the camera function to just getting nice focus instead of video and all that, i only used it to take pictures of peoples faces. i like how it stood out and people always commented how cool it was. similarly i don't think people actually knew it was a fone and so it never got stolen even though i've been rather careless now and then. i think it has a great touch of class and why nokia doesn't just make a slim fone with this style is beyond me. i think its calendar function worked pretty well for my purposes and SMS TXTING WAS EXCELLENT. So definitely a girls fone in the end in terms of practicality. I did wish it was smaller cuz i hated carrying it in my tight jeans.
I dont know what all you people are complaining about.
Sure the low memory and the inside screen getting scratched by its own keypad! but who needs 200 SMS's? why would u NEED to keep 200 SMS's ?
I've had the Phone for about 5mths and its great, does everything i want it to. I havent noticed anything that is bad with this phone except for what i mentioned above.
I can no longer get the updated Version (the Nokia 7270 - Unfortunatly.
oh well i forgot to mention.. though having a low capacity of memory 'still good enough for basic usage & it has great resolution & watta a great keypadzz.. =o)
i had this unit for quite a while now & i would say that this phone really rockkkzz my worLd!!! I find this unit so simple yet so elegant.. Thanks for innovating such a wonderful unit.. 6170 was the bezt!!! =o)
YOU NOW WHAT ? This phone is better then the motorola pink! those mobile sucks .. NOKIA THE BEST & 6170 ROCKSSSSS !!
Nokia 6170 is a very nice phone. OK, no generalization - it's a nice phone in my opinion and according to the reactions of my friends. Designers bet on pure design, which is not disturbed by any ornaments. The phone features block form with slightly rounded edges; front and rear parts are absolutely flat. OSman kidik nokia is nokia anyway..
finely i get this phone so video record not enough should have more memory.i'm happy what else you need asap you got ring you say yes that is it..
Solid phone, except for the fact that the buttons from the keypad starting falling off one by one, until I had only the numbers 9 and 6 left. Replaced the key pad with a new one, and after 3 months, I have just lost another button. :\
Has this happened to anyone else?
Also, I forgot to mention that the 2mb memory can be annoying so think about it :)
I've had this phone for 4 months, great phone I must say for people who don't need all the fancy options. I did like the material from which the phone is made, it feels really solid. Keypad feels very good and T9 and sms'ing is great. It's really weird, I've had a lot of friends who like this phone but some find it absolutely disgusting. I guess you have to find out for yourself, but one thing is for certain... you don't see many people with this phone :)
Stupid thing they did...only 2 megs of memory.......I already fixed the display conector twice....no radio even thow it has the option on the menu......camera doesn't always work....the rest does nt matter
ok fone does the job it is designed to do, (just) its been back to the shop to be fixed (faulty volume buttons & outer screeen faulty) not the best nokia ive owned, needs bluetooth to be a winner! 5/10
I have had this phone for 6 months already and it is already broken. When i open the phone, the screen turns white. I always hangs and the signal is so low. I love the design and the camera is really clear but then now i have to buy a new phone. :(
