“Simple and Convieniant”

Written on: 08/10/2012

This is a 2012 review, written by a 17-year-old typical teenager, whom has this phone. What does that tell you. Well, it tells how bloody amazing this phone is. It's where it all started; before all of these smart phones.All you need is tha ability to text, call, and turn the brightness up for when you're in the sun. BUT, you don't even need that with this phone, because as well as having a back-light, that backlight can turn off, letting you use natural light to see the screen. This is just one… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/05/2007 by viiintaaage (1 review written)

The Nokia 3100 was my second phone after my first, Nokia 3400. It's a good phone and believe me, very sturdy! It's had many, many accidents and still works perfectly, I'm still using it today, but I'm getting a new phone later this year. This one won't go in the bin though! One of the 3100's best points is, in my opinion, the alarm clock. You can set it very easily and it has a snooze control etc. The alarm also goes off even when your phone has been switched off, which I have found very handy… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2007 by Oterro (17 reviews written)

This is the phone I have right now. Nothing too special, nothing too bad. A simple coloured phone with a space of about 1mb or so. Has the GPRS which could be better, but is OK, and sometimes I really wish it would have a camera. But overall, the phone is simple, nice and probably pretty cheap right about these times, so its good… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/04/2005 by haddock26 (20 reviews written)

This is a typical Nokia. It should be nice and cheap by now, would be a good PAYG phone.
I thought the glow in the dark bit was quite pointless til it fell out of my pocket in the cinema, I managed to spot where it was!
The one phone I've had with changeable covers, and I didn't take advantage! But it was a nice blue!
The attachable camera was annoying, gave up with it. Picture quality from it wasn't amazing. But it was OK at the time, things get out dated quickly these days! I have always had… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/11/2004 by Picaroon (2 reviews written)

Bought after 3 years with a Philips Savvy, so came as an extreme culture shock!
Excellent as a basic phone, which concentrates on voice communication (texting looks OK, but not really my forte).
For the price (£60 - O2 pre-pay) it knocks spots of the competition in terms of display and key-pad. Can't imagine why I would need anything else for 'phoning / texting… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/11/2004 by Minh (1 review written)

Before this phone I had the Nokia 5110, 3210 and 3310. They were almost the same phone with different look so I didn't expect much from the 3100. Well the 3100 has really a lot of new *useful* features (see good points) it's so amazing. I could try the Sony Ericsson T230 and the Alcatel OT332 which are in the same price category and damn the 3100 is easier to use and so much better on many points… Read Full Review

The Nokia 3100 is a great phone to use for a simple person or at the work place. It has got some advanced features such as color screen, MMS, Java games and color screen savers. But it also lacks on some new features such as built in camera, infa-red, Bluetooth I suppose this is why it's a value for money phone… Read Full Review

Overall the Nokia 3100 is a very good phone if you are just going to use it for phone calls and texting, but if your buying it for the gadgets it's not that good, as the camera is hideous. Even though I have seen a blue version of the camera online, so it comes in red/orange/blue… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/08/2004 by FatRakoon (2 reviews written)

Not being too much of a mobile fanatic, I cannot say too much, but it's the best phone I have used to date... I also use a SONY J70 which is ok, but only ok, this Nokia has certainly given my Mobile use a big boost.
Love the way it dances with the ring tones, although a little sad, it's fun.
Easy to work around its menus, and it displays a picture of the people who phone me (when I get the cable back it should do anyway)… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/08/2004 by Mark Flury (4 reviews written)

The 3100 is my 4th Orange Nokia mobile, as I take the free upgrade offered each year. My previous 'phone before this was a Nokia 5210, which conked out and had to be replaced once.

I find the battery life amazing: about a week, charged from flat, with little usage. The handset is neat and the menus (like other Nokia 'phones) well thought out. In fact I was able to use this straight from its box, without refering to the instruction manual, having used Nokia's before.

What else swayed me is… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/06/2004 by John patson (1 review written)

I'm disappointed with the Nokia 3100. Compared to older mobile phones, the reception is terrible. Also, while the phone says I have coverage people have not been able to call me and go straight to voicemail. Sometimes my phone doesn't indicate I have voicemail until two days after it was left. This could be a problem with the service, but my wife has the same service and does not have these problems… Read Full Review

Overall i think this Nokia 3100 is a good mobile phone for the price. The phone is attractive as the size and the style makes it unique and the screen is very clear regarding the size and colour display. If you do not want to spend a lot of money on a phone but you want a lightweight phone with a decent display then i think this is the phone for you… Read Full Review

Sorry.....Ok, if you say so. Although some specifications do state that the ringtones are monophonic and they do not sound polyphonic...anyway I am not here to "nit pick" I am just giving my opinion on the phone.

Ive had the nokia 3100 for a week and what can i say - its a cool phone. It can play almost every java game, it has world time unlike a nokia 3200, alarm, calander, mms, sms, 4 inbuilt games and colour screen + java aplacations.

Written on: 08/05/2004 by sgrant (2 reviews written)

I signed up on a contract with a local carrier and they supplied two 3105 mobile phones. The 3105 is identical to the Nokia 3100 in every respect except that it is on the CDMA network, not GSM.

One of the phones I received was, in my opionion, perfect. Screen colour, quality and contrast is what I would expect. For this handset I would give it a 10/10.

However, the second handset I recieved had a DRAMATICALLY different quality to the screen. The screen, for a start, was much darker. Using… Read Full Review

I would like to expand on my review as presented here:
<br>
<br>I have now had the phone back to Nokia for the day for a service. After having the phone with them for most of the day, it was returned unfixed.
<br>
<br>I discussed the issue of the poor contrast with the Nokia customer care representative and he took the phone back out to the tech. After about 15 minutes the representative returned and told me that the tech has no idea what is wrong. he suspects that it is a software issue and is unable to fix it.
<br>
<br>The suggestion was I call Nokia directly, which I have done.
<br>
<br>I have been forced, now, to take my hand set, plus my wife's hand set to the repair centre for comparison.
<br>
<br>As a further kick, I have now been told that the 3105 is NOT WAP COMPATABLE in Australia and there are no plans to make it wap compatabile in the future - despite the fact that my service provider has assured me that it is going to be activated soon, the service providers web page STILL details this phone as WAP compatable....
<br>
<br>I am beginning to be VERY VERY VERY unhappy with both this phone and the service I am receiving from Nokia and Orange and the string of lies that are coming from both.

yep don't expect any help from Nokia, I've given up after years of using their phones their customer service is diabolical. I bought a brand new 3200 which I took to the Care Center in Sydney, they told me it had manufacturing problems, and charged me $100 to fix (On a brand new phone this is surely ridiculous), and took a week to do so, with no replacement handset available during that week. They also gave me a wrong email address (when I phoned to ask for one as their website feedback was not working, I tried that one 5 times from different locations). Absolutely terrible. If they keep disrespecting their cutomers like this theyre gonna go down.

There is a great "go to" section in the right hand corner that can be used for all the things you usually acsess on your Nokia 3100 mobile phone, but are limited to only 6 things. there are lots of folders and it is hard to realise which goes where even after having the phone for 7 months. the screensaver is very iritating, and also the way it goes dark very quickly, but long lasting charge of the phone makes up for that. overall this is a very great phone with some anoying and disapointing… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2004 by joeish (1 review written)

After having a Siemens C45 for ages, it stared to pack up on me with the speaker and backlight messing up so I bought this Nokia 3100 mobile phone for £60 on an offer at Woolworths (probably the cheapest place 4 u to buy one). It came on vodafone so i got it unlocked to use my O2 sim which works fine. Nokia are a much better make than my previous siemens as this battery lasts forever and the sound is like talking to a landline (ie. good quality!) This phone must have a hell of a lot bigger… Read Full Review
