I've got one! It's working great as a phone, but i want that hotspot function so i can use a tablet for the things the phone can't do and i cant get it working properly. I'm getting "no DNS" error messages and no internet on connected devices. Internet on the phone itself seems to be working fine.
I'll give it a few days but if i can't get the hot spot to work it will have to be returned and that would be a shame.
I'm experiencing similar issues with my new Nokia 8110 4G, specifically with the T9 keyborad being so slow it gives only numbers instead of letters at the beginning of typing. anyhow, I've sent the following message both to KaiOS and Nokia customers support, and I advice all of you to do the same. Maybe if they see enough people care about this phone they mighy consider an update.
To whom it may concern,
I've recently bought the new Nokia 8110 4G with KaiOS and having hard time using it. Unlike old "dumbphone" and normal smartphones, this new Nokia is full of bugs, and generally not smooth at all.
The main bug I'm experiencing is the long time it takes for a screen (like contacts or new message) to open up and be ready for typing. when I open the contacts screen, for instance, and start typing in the search field, usually only numbers are typed-in and not letters. Only if I wait for a while I can type letters.
There are many bugs and missed important features which are pretty common in the old nokia, these are just a few:
- no option to set shortcuts on arrow buttons like on other feature Nokia phones
- cannot change or add shortcuts in shortcuts menu (hotspot, usb-thetering, etc.)
- bluetooth reconnection with paired device does not work, you must turn on/off bluetooth on phone again.
- when using hotspot phone gets very hot
- google calendar doesn't recognize user's password and therefore not signing in
- no easy way to turn volume up and down, only by turning on and off the vibration mode.

I'd like to advise that the following make my user experience with the phone not only discomfort, but almost impossible to keep using.
I expect an OS or firmware update to be released ASAP, if you want this phone to be anyhow attractive.
Thanks a lot,
good but not make this to perfect because old nokia use like me having not properly all old options and work done it so bad phone i don't like because no call log and messenges and contact backup like old nokia phones with pc suite or in phone option and other many option have not and new option not for done to my life style so i don't like it but i like nokia old phones.
The Nokia 8110 4G hangs often (software), so you have to switch off and on again.
Bluetooth does not work in your car unless you start it manually over and over again and even then it is not always working.
I live at the border, and the network don't switch automatically to the strongest provider, so I have to do that every time manually.
The Nokia 8110 4G is a disappointment for me, I have also many problems with the Nokia 3 (maybe it can be repaired, screen for entering a code during a phone call does not show always, weeks ok and then weeks not ok), also problems with Nokia 3310 3G, no, Nokia has lost his name for me ..
At least one new feature phone is going to be announced
in a few days by Nokia/Hmd.
That's good news.
Khan, 01 Oct 2018Is there any call recording option ???No the phone can't record calls. It can't even add words to the dictionary. It can't even block numbers. Really KaiOS isn't finished yet
K Mughal, 29 Sep 2018Contact block option not available.No the phone can't block numbers.
1. Is there's a record for the duration of all calls?
2. If there's a record, what kind of information showed in screen?
the duration of receive calls and Dial-out calls respectively?
or the total duration of receive calls and dial-out calls?
3. Is passward input required before call duration reset?
