This is one of the most disappointing phone models I have ever owned. Within months, it starting hanging up frequently and restarting on its own. Since it has a metallic outer casing, it used to get hot (trust me, abnormally hot that it hurt my ears) while making a call. At first, it didn’t use to hang up that often but soon, it become more frequent. I gave it for repair to an authorized Nokia care since it wasn’t responding and was showing a white screen “restart failed. Please contact retailer”. They probably did a hard reset and wiped all data. I had to give it two more time for repair to Nokia care for the same problem. I paid Rs2500 for power ac strip hardware on my second visit. The third time I gave my phone; they messed up with the whole internal circuitry, and told me they couldn’t repair it since it has some motherboard problem. Now when I switch on my phone, I get a white blank screen with a black circle on it. Like the one shown in the “Ring movie”. The best part is Nokia care people don’t accept any responsibility on your phone repair. I’ve lost my faith in Nokia (I’d been a long time Nokia loyalist, but not anymore), thrown away this junk phone, and bought a Samsung Galaxy Y Duos phone which seems to be working amazingly good. No wonder the world has moved on to Android based phones. Trust me, they are much better, faster and cheaper.

anonymous, 24 Aug 2012The only shortcomings experienced are that the phone hangs when two or three applications are ... moreI don't think so coz i usually have 3-4 apps running simultaneously and it works just fine, although not that fast. And btw you have to take into account the internal memory of this mobile which is pretty low as well. So i would advise you to have a memory management software, preferrably Netqin MobiGaurd which is free as well as highly efficient.
As far as smileys are concerned, they are available under the name of Emoticons in Create Message. And if you still can't find them then you need to make sure that you are having the latest version of firmware installed on your handset, which should be 071.004.
And I agree with you, this is a nice phone!

The only shortcomings experienced are that the phone hangs when two or three applications are running concurrently, and also goes off on its own and sometimes refuses to turn on...also amazed that it doesnt have smileys. Otherwise its a good phone
i like it but the worst part of it that there is no free internet i mean no w_lan and i hate that :@
just bought it two days ago, brand new phone (old stock) without nokia warranty only for US$60
a very nice phone, with great camera and sound speaker
overall it still very usable even in year 2012
I am using this phone since 2yrs, Initially I do not see any problems upto 10months, after that I come across the problems frequently like hanging while getting the call if it is playing music, And Automatically switch off and taking own decisions. even at the time I have used Frinz and did so many video calls to my friends, but from past 3-4 months onwards my phone is not supporting to Frinz application I dont know the reason, even If I reinstall the latest or Old versions of Frinz also not working in my mobile, friends please suggest me how can I use frinz application.
It is not a good set. Many important thing is related with ribon. If your ribon is gone than many other items will be damage. My camera is n0t open.
this is my worst phone. I seldom use my n6700 bec battery life is low. The volume is not so good..Phone memory is low. Power button is problem too. Wont turn on at times. This phone is a dis appointment to me

i hv been using the for nearly two year..3times i replaced its flex..but the operating system is awsome,can do numerous at one time..camera is really superb,all in all i love this phone..thanks
I have been using this phone for 2 years. It is good for a camera freak. Its awesome camera capabilities come at the cost of some other basic features. There is no external volume control button. The software doesn't provide some very small features which are usually supposed to be implicit for the phones of lower cost brackets. You cannot scroll songs in music player with the earphone button. Its loudspeaker volume has deteriorated greatly over the years.
