Nokia 2100 Review
Review: July 2004. Updated October 2005.
The Nokia 2100 is a cheap entry-level phone with basic features. It
has been designed to be a practical and fun phone, with ease of use
as its main selling point.
The Nokia 2100 can easily be customised to suit your personality, with
changeable Xpress-on™ colour covers, a photo insert cover, and ringtones
that can be customised for different callers.
The Nokia 2100 is a good phone for texters, with SMS, concatenated
SMS, chat & picture messaging. You can make up to six distribution
lists, each with up to ten names, so you can quickly distribute a single
message to several friends, family members, or colleagues.
The main problem with the 2100 (aprt from its low spec) is its poor
reliability, which is a major fault in a phone with so few features.
Read the consumer reviews below to get an idea of the kinds of problems
that people encounter with this phone. Battery life is also vrey poor.
A better option is the Nokia 1100 which
has a similar spec but is more reliable.
Features of the Nokia 2100 include:
- High resolution display (96 x 65 pixels)
- 35 fixed ringtones plus ringtone composer
- Speed dialling
- Predictive text input
- Picture messaging
- SMS chat
- Changeable x-press on covers
- Phonebook (100 names)
- Animated screensavers
- 3 games (Link5, Space Impact, Snake II)
- Calculator, currency converter, stopwatch, countdown timer
- Reminders, repeated alarm
- Size: 106 x 44 x 21 mm
- Weight: 86g
- Battery standby: 50 - 150 hours
- Battery talktime: 2 - 4 hours
- Dual band
- Vibration alert

I use this phone for almost 1-2 years and I must say as a phone it works
great, I have never had any problems. But the bad thing about this phone
is because with this phone you can call and sms ...that's all...so for
people who like more things (MMS, photo,...), then you shouldn't buy

sorry for saying this but this phone is crappy? for $199.00 i thought
it would at least be reliable. The screen is small ringtones are too
quiet, keypad preses 2 keys at once and the microphone broke when dropped
once, have had it for 3 years and its been nothing but chaos. Vibration
stopped after 1 year usage, was only kept in pocket or on charger. battery
life is good. but thats about uit.... dont get it.

the phone cost about 60 us dollars (600 hk dollars)... just before i
went to england it stoped working it just wouldent charge or turn on
so i took it to the shop the guy put a new battery then it charged but
stoped chargeing in about 3 hours and i kept fixing it and it kept dien
eventualy it came to a cost of 110 us dollars 1200 hk dollars but apart

Realy reliable, Nice Clear screen, buttons are a bit small though for
people with big fingers, big range of ringtones plus a ringtone composer
if you don't like any of the standard ones. Some of the useful features
are: Calculator, currency converter, stopwatch, countdown timer Reminders,
repeated alarm. vibration alert is really useful, snake II is really
good for those boring meetings or bus trips. Overall this phone is excellent
value for money and can be used by all ages.

Nokia 2100 This phone is great because: *Easy to use *Not packed with
confusing, un-needed features *Very reliable *Good size & appearance
Its not the top of the range phone these days but does the job- and
very very well with a few extras like good tim passing games. There
is nothing bad about this phone that I have a discovered. I currently
have a Nokia 3220 which is great but I have a lot of experience with
2100s. If I had a 2100 I would not be dissapointed but seeing as I am
young all my friends have flashy colour screen, feature packed phones
and I wanted to be one of them. LOL Great phone so I recomend it as
a starter phone but not to someone who wants lots of features. My rating
is based on for that style of phone, not comparing it to any of those
modern, camera phones that is basically a portable computer!!! If I
could have I would have given it a rating of 3 1/2 Bye

a Nokia 3315. It is an excellent lil phone and fits in my pocket which
is very convenient! You can buy different covers for it to suit your
personality. The only thing I don't like about it is that there isn't
many space for text messages. Which for me is annoying cuz I always
receive heaps of messages from my friends and some are just too good
to delete! But other than that this phone is easy to us and very cheap!
It's a great phone...I definetly suggest you BUY it! Nokia all that

The phone is generally good. Almost all the basic functionalities are
present. Keypad light is terribly too strong. If there were a feature
to reduce the luminocity of this light, the phone would be great. So
this is more a torch than a phone. Battery power would have been saved
if not for this strong light.

Excellent phone if you use a phone the way it's meant to be used - making
calls. Personally I use an actual digital camera for taking pictures
and an mp3 player for listening to music, so these functions are completely
unneccessary on a phone as far as I am concerned (especially at the
low standards that phones are currently doing these stuff anyway). If
you don't want to pay for features you never use anyway, then this is
the phone for you. I've been using it for almost a year and have not
had any problems with the reception or texting functions. Highly recommended.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because no phone actually deserves all

I think its fairly hilarious the supposed kudos that mobile phones have
these days. It seems all the rage to have a phone with a rubbish camera,
slow internet, tiny colour screen, lame java games, bluetooth, wap &
polyphonic ring tones. These people need to also invest in purchasing
a life in addition to their phones. If you want to take pictures, buy
a digital camera, computers give you access to the net, gameboy advance's
are available in most good computer stores. It's so refreshing to have
a phone that focuses on the two most important functions - calling and
texting. The sound quality is excellent on the handset, and its extremely
easy to use. One for the people who already have a life.

Stop complaining guys (and gals)! It's a phone - you make phone calls
on it and send SMS!! You want internet? Use your computer? You want
games? Get a handheld - or use your computer! That's what phones do?
Predictive text is my favourite feature - it really DOES save your thumb
a lot of wear and tear (and probably arthiritus further down the track).
The ability to set a different ring tone for different callers is a
fabulous idea - now you dont even have to look to see who is calling.
Great phone for the price.

In "Write Message" menu once the message is sent to destination there
is no "Back" option to go to the "Message menu" which is present in
the previous model.Each time the message has to be cleared to go the
previous menu which is bugging.I wonder how the developers and testers
missed this out?

This is a truly wonderful product from nokia, subject to the condition
that you are purchasing mobile set for conversation and not for games
and all other things. Its biggest attraction is its light which can
really help u in finding things in the dark. Its ringing voice is little
low. For those who want to attract people in 500 metre circle, this
will be a disappointment. But it's cell not a loud speaker. Really a
trendy one. My suggestion:- GO FOR THIS.

I think that it should support longer SMS messages.

I was contemplating getting a phone that had a radio and digital camera
when I upgraded my contract but my parents rightly asked 'Why?' so I
went with the 2100, a fantastic little phone which has all I need, reminders,
alarm clock and extended sms. What else do I need? If I want to surf
the web (ie WAP) I'll do it at home on my PC where it's CHEAP! Plus
side is you can use the phone as a torch at night (seriously!) because
the key lights are quite bright. My dad's got a 6210i and all he uses
it for is calls. He should get a 2100. It's a phone!! You shouldn't
need extra fancy schmancy stuff.

One of the best low-end phones Nokia has to offer!Simple menu structure(as
with all Nokia phones), great SMS functions, neat little Picture Editor
and cute Photo-insert-(on the back cover).ALL up it is a neat little
phone for a great price. Recommended for anyone who wants a good, reliable
phone for a low, cheap price. 2100 RULES!!!!

I bought this phone on the grounds that I used my last mobile for texting
and calls, which is exactly what the Nokia 2100 does. The features are
quite basic and similar to the Nokia 3310 but some little touches make
it stand out. The picture space on the back cover, for instance, is
a great way to personalise your phone. It doesn't deserve the 5 star
rating just yet but certainly could do in the near future.

PROS: smallish has some great features audio quality screen clarity
- easy to read phone menu structure - easy to follow CONS: reception
not the best in fringe areas key lights far too bright at night while
driving keys could be tricky for blokes with big fingers

Had if for like almost 3 months, prety "alright" so far. what do you
expect from a phone thats being priced at this level? U get what u pay
for.... pretty user friendly and all, but nothing really fancy bout
it...u get mostly standard functions alrite,, anywho, I would definitely
recommend it for anyone looking for a budget phone.
