"N0KiA is the Best solution"

Hey Hi there! for complete information about this mobile phone u must read all the review from up to bottom...THANX....
Its look is deceiving, because the 'chunkyness' of it I think makes it look bigger than it really is. It's actually smaller than my last phone (Samsung C100; don't go there; read my review) at 10cm x 4cm x 2cm approx.
The great thing also is that the cover is replaceable, so when it gets completely knackered you can just give it a 'facelift' and it will still look fine!
The best thing about messaging on this phone is there's a shortcut from the main screen straight to write message just be pushing the left navigation button.There are three games in NOKIA 3100 bowling, beach rally or snake EX2 which are enough for a mobile user..
This phone does have WAP also,so u can easily use WAP on NOkia 3100.Battery life very good, expect about 5-6 days with average use. I like the fact that there are 7 battery bars, so you have a much better idea of how much battery life is left at any time.
There is also a disadvantage of NOKIA 3100 because there is no integral camera - althhough this IS possible to buy one separately that interfaces with the phone.
It is small enough to fit easily into a pocket and hardly be noticed. It has a full colour screen and the buttons are very small.
The phone menus are quite clear, and the navigation is easy using the arrow keys on the phone.Each different phone function can be accessed trough the menu simply by pressing the buttons.. It allows you a lot of talktime and when it is on standby it seems to last forever.
Hands free speaker - This is a great facility so that if you are driving you can put the phone onto the loud speaker and still be able to hear what people on the phone are saying.Flashing lights - The phone has a flashing light when the phone rings or you receive a text message. You can even set it so it flashes in time with your ring tone.
This is best mobile fone for Great people so u must use this mobile phone and facilitate yourself by brilliant mobile phone..rate best for me

    Not a bad review, have the layout more spaced out to make it easier to read!

Product Information : Nokia 3100

Manufacturer's product description

Light up the night with a glow-in-the-dark cover - when it's charged with light you can easily find your phone in the dark. When you get a call, the Nokia 3100 phone flashes in tune with your ringing tone. And when you snap on a Nokia Xpress-on gaming cover, you'll get luminescent light effects in time to the gaming action. Shoot a picture with the Fun Camera (available separately). It comes with a flash so you can capture the fun indoors and out. Then just load the photos on to your Nokia 3100 phone, write a note, add a smiley, and share the moment with your friends. Play the day away with the pre-installed Java games on the Nokia 3100 phone, including the all-new Beach Rally. You can add and change the games when you feel like it thanks to Java technology, so when you're ready for a new challenge, simply download new games to your Nokia 3100 phone.
