This phone is not bad as it has some pretty good features like infrared to communicate between 2 nokia phones and games.However apart from that,it doesnt have much to offer,its a fairly heavy and bulky phone.Its does have a good battery life though and its a solid phone too.Overall though,i wouldnt really recommend anyone this phone unless you can buy it for cheap.Its been replaced by the nokia 6250 so its hard to buy now.It has good reception though which is a good side of it
I was looking for an average phone that I could use both at home and abroad, and this phone at the time had only just come out into the market due to the popularity of the 702. I wanted to use it for both business and pleasure and with the types of selection on the menu, this just let me do it. *Problems with the phone* Due to this I had this phone from an Orange dealership, so therefore I am on Orange. I have had a couple problems with this phone since I bought it 2 years ago and it is used everyday for hours on end. The only problem that has occured is that the battery has become loose and that the LCD screen failed to work sometimes. *6150e menu* As with all orange phones, Orange puts blocks on certain functions in the menu guide. On the 6150e, there are the following in the menu; 1) Messages - options for text messaging and answer phone messages andthe iformation service, as well as for fax / data calls and the servicecommand editor 2) Call register - Includes phone numbers of recent calls, as well as call durration and costs. Costs are only given if pay as you go. 3)Profiles - Includes options for customising your own modes of phone use e.g. outdoor setting i.e. loudest ring, silent, meeting, etc. These setting can then be changed and personalised to indiviual tastes. Different caller groups are set up (a maximum of 5) with individual ring tones per caller group. 4) Settings - This includes settings related to calls e.g. speed dialing, call waiting, automatic redial, etc. Phone e.g. language settings, network selection, alarm clock, etc and security e.g. pin numbers. 5) Call divert - Options for diverting incomming calls to another phone. 6) Games - 6150e has 3 games. Memory, snake, and logic. With snakes you can have a 1 person or 2 person game. If you play a two person, the other phone must have an infra red at the top of phone. 7) Calculator 8) Calend
er 9) Infrared 10) Services - includes a collection of services provided and updated by Nokia or your service provider. Out of all these 10 sevice menus, some of the seb menus have benn blocked from being used. *Reception and signal* At home (in this country) the signal and reception given has been outstanding. I have know some phones not to have a signal whilst I have and that is being on the same network. This phone has been used abroad about 5 / 6 times since the purchase and the quality of sound and the signal has been great. The battery life is also brilliant. *Sound quality* The sound quality is exceptional where ever you are in the country or abroad. *Overal personal outcome* I would highly reccommend this phone and I am not going to change this phone for anything. This phone is still higly reccommended in the Orange phone shops as being the best on the market. Well worth having.
With brand new mobile phones entering the market all the time, people would be bewildered with choice and easily swayed by fancy gimmicks. The truth is that the best Nokia phone to date is without doubt the 6150 (with infrared). It has been growing in popularity ever since its introduction and even more so now that it has been discontinued. It is the most robust phone available. The new 7110, 8210, etc. have some better feature (more personal ring tones, text messaging recognition, etc.) but they actually fail too often. By fail, I mean freeze, switch themselves off for no apparent reason, call cut-offs. Lets face it, these are the most essential aspects of mobiles. The 7110 in particular has had many problems, resulting in Nokia coming out with 4 or 5 new versions of it! The 6150 is light, sophisticated, and well respected by handset experts. Having had the phone for over 18 months now, I felt like a change but an assistant advised me to keep the 6150 as its value has increased and it still remains the best Nokia phone to date. If you have it, keep it!
I have owned and used various Nokia phones in my time and this one is certainly something special. Its not too big or small, its got plenty of functions and yet its not complicated. So below I have described the phone in some detail. It has four key features: Firstly its superior design ? Everything is neatly packed together, with the aerial being the only major vulnerability. However, this is not such a problem as it gives you better network coverage I feel. Secondly its is Highly durable ? It's small, sturdy and has a small aerial. When using this phone I dropped it on a number of occasions, but no damaged was caused. Mind you, I would expect that most phones Nokia phones should be able to withstand damage up to a certain level. Thirdly it includes the three standard built-in games. They?re not particularly amazing but still they pass time waiting for a curry! Finally you get up to 3 and half hours' talk time and 200 hours' standby time with standard battery. This is not that bad, although maybe you would expect more for a phone of this price, and position in the market. However, it is unlikely that I am going to be on teh phone constantly for over 3 hours, so this is not really a problem for me. There are many reasons that I love this phone. Above I have described the features of the phone below are the reasons why I like the 6150. This is not the one of the smallest phone I have seen, but the quality is what attracts me to Nokia. It is very light, weighing about 5.8 ounces and measuring approximately 5.3? by 2? by 0.8?. This means that it is still small enough to go into your pocket or in the case of a lady into your handbag or even your purse. The 6150 offers excellenbt features such as a calendar (great for busy Mothers or people that need to keep track of appointments, me not being one of them), a calculator, lots of options to personalise the phone and as I?ve already mentio
ned three mildly entertaining games. However, I would not buy the phoen only for these features, as the main thing it is for is to phone people, as we tend to forget!!! Like all phones, it supports text messaging, data transmission capabilities and has a phone directory capable of holding up to 199 names and numbers. Nokia's soft-key menu system is intuitive and helpful. The large display screen clearly shows menu functions and features, and it is particularly useful for me with my poor eyesight. If you pause at any point during menu navigation, a brief pop-up tip appears to clarify that menu function. This can be very helpful to you, partuclarly on your first go at all the different menus. The 6150 lets you track incoming calls, outgoing calls, and missed calls in three separate logs. This is great for when I can not take my eyes off the road and get to the phone. The 'Navigate' button, centred just above the keypad provides up/down navigation for your phone directory, call logs, menu functions, and volume. Overall, this is an excellent phone, but consider that there maube be better ones avaiable like the 6210. Everyone has different tastes, and for sheer ease of use, I would buy this one!!!
I have been through my share of mobile phones. This one I have to say is one of my favorites. Why? 1. Compact design 2. Highly durable 3. Includes 4 built-in games (OK, I get bored) 4. Up to 3.2 hours' talk time and 200 hours' standby time with standard battery There are many reasons that I love this phone. Before owning the 6150 I owned the 5160. While it shares most features with the 5160, it is slimmer, a tad lighter, and offers improved battery performance. The 6150 also packs in a few extra features including more ringer styles. This is not the smallest phone I have seen, but the quality is what attracts me to Nokia. Weighing in at 5.8 ounces and measuring approximately 5.2 by 1.9 by 1 inches, so it is still small enough to go in a small purse or even your pocket. Like the 5160, the 6160 offers baseline features such as a calendar (great for busy Moms or people that need to keep track of appointments), a calculator, lots of personalization options, and four mildly entertaining games. The 6150 supports text messaging, data transmission capabilities and has a phone directory capable of holding up to 199 names and numbers. It's three-NAM capability, ability to work at both 800 MHz and 1900 MHz frequencies, and support for both digital and analog networks provide mobile users with a great deal of flexibility. Nokia's soft-key menu system is intuitive and helpful. The large display screen clearly shows menu functions and features. If you pause at any point during menu navigation, a brief pop-up tip appears to clarify that menu function. The 6150 lets you track incoming calls, outgoing calls, and missed calls in three separate logs. This is great for when I can not take my eyes off the road and get to the phone. The 'Navi' button, centered just above the keypad provides up/down navigation for your phone directory, call logs, menu functions, and volume. The
standard NiMH battery will hold a charge for about 3 hours. This came in handy for me when I was stuck on the side of the road in a snowstorm. If you're looking for a durable phone with easy-to-use features, the Nokia 6150 would be perfect for you
This Phone is one of the best ever business phones ever. This phone has been mine for quite a while now and it hasnt gone wrong once since ive had it. The infra red works excellently for transfering data between 61** series phones. The colour is also cool hat is what makes it stick out from the non dual band nk702 and 6110. The games are good as on all new nokia phones. Its not as easy to use as other phones as ther is so many more menus but if your a business person then you are not stupid so this phone should be a breeze once you get used to it.(didnt take me long to work it out) The extra menu it has is world service which is a menu to get things like football results rugby horse racing etc i dont use it much but find it very useful when i do. World services is a menu that many phones do not have like older 3210's 5110's 402's and the nk702. this phone also accepts ringtones, logos and caller group logos to make your phone unique even as rare as it is. This phone is just perfect for a business person on the move.
~ ~ In a mobile phone market that seems to change practically by the day, if not the hour, the Nokia 6150 feels like it has been around almost since the dawn of time. At this stage it is fairly well recognised as one of the better phones on offer, and for very good reason. ~ ~ The talk time is excellent, as is the stand-by time, and it also boasts some fairly handy features, even if they are beginning to appear a little “long in the tooth” when judged by today’s standards. ~ ~ The calendar feature which allows you to store reminders of friend’s birthdays, appointments, and anniversaries is a great idea, but falls down a little as it is very hard to actually use. You have to use the phone pad itself to input any data, and this is very awkward to say the least. ~ ~ You also have a directory for storing names and telephone numbers, but there is a drawback here too, as it only allows you fifteen “characters”, which often means you have to abbreviate entries to make them fit. There is a calculator function (which I’ve never used), and also a few rather simple looking games, which again aren’t up to much by today’s standards. ~ ~ Having told you the “minus” factors, I still think this little phone is a very good buy at the price. It is small and versatile, and it is far easier to get accessories for it than some of its more expensive rivals. ~ ~ It’s simplicity itself to work out how it actually works, which is a lot more than can be said for many phones, where you nearly need a degree in maths to figure out their functions. It also runs in the GSM mode, which means you can use it on your foreign holidays, unlike the old analogue models. ~ ~ A security code can be imputed to protect you from unauthorised use, and if you ever decide to upgrade to a newer model, all you need simply do is remove its tiny “sim-card” and insert t
his in your new phone, which means you are up and running straight away. ~ ~ While it is true that there are unquestionably more sophisticated phones on the market, this is a terrific little buy, that simply gets on with the job in hand without too much fuss and bother. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants a phone they can actually use, and not just another fashion accessory to dangle from their belt.
I must admit my mobile phone is a work phone, so I didn?t really have much choice in what I wanted, but I have to say they made a pretty good choice. This phone has all the functions you need on it, it is not connected to WAP, (but then why pay to go on the Internet with my mobile phone, when I can wait till I get home and go on the net for free?) the features on this phone include; receiving and sending picture and normal text messages, answer phone, call diversion, call waiting, a phone book, the ability to have two lines on the one phone and you can also download free ring tones and graphics, off the internet, the best site I have found for doing this is www.yourmobile.com, but you only get 5 downloads in 24 hours. The phone has lots of other great features too. I am also on the orange network and it is the best network I have been on, you can get a signal in most places, the only problem is I am finding increasingly more and more busy and at certain times of the day it is hard to make calls. I have been on one2one before which was a load of rubbish, I never had a signal even in large towns and cities, I have also been on the Vodaphone network too, which is just as good as Orange. This phone maybe slightly outdated now, but I can still use it for what I want and I certainly stick with the Nokia make if I ever purchased a mobile phone in the future.
If you don't need a WAP phone, this could be the phone for you. The 6150 has been out a while yet but is still a very popular model indeed from what I have heard people say, and I can see why. I have had one of these phones since January and can't see myself wanting to change for a different model any time soon. The features on the phone and the quality of it's build and reception still make it a more popular phone than those more recently released from other companies. And it's much cheaper now than it used to be!
Very good phone, robust. I have had it for a year now and havent experienced many problems....the only thing i dont like about it, is it is quite heavy and slightly bulky.. It also doesnt have a built in modem, so u cant transfer data to pc or pda. good talktime, good standby time. lots of useful things like calender, for notes, caller groups , profiles, and download ringtones....I got a vibrating batter, coz u need one nowadays......well i am selling it, contact me on 07010 711314 Well recently updated my phone to the new spt88d......one of the best phone around in terms of size and quality....
The 6150 was my previous phone, and it was a sad day when i parted from it. The phone is reliable, sturdy and although big is very easy to use, even my dad can use it. The display is large and the nokia interface makes it easy to use the address book, and make calls. Reception and call clarity is probably the best you can get on a mobile phone and although it is slightly dated the phone still has technology that exists in today's phones. The Tony Adams of the mobile phone market, adaptable, strong, consistent and clear. If you ever have problems with the phone it is normally the network and not the phone that does itself justice.
In a society where mobile phones are in use by the majority of people, it can be very difficult to choose between a high priced model with special features and a budget model with basic features. This phone solves the problem completely. It may not be the cheapest phone available, but the quality of signal and reliability more than justify the extra cost. If you are considering a mobile phone then you can expect to use it for a minimum of 2 years, so it is necessary to select one that will still be operating well after this period. My personal use of this model has proved to me that it qualifies as an excellent purchase.
I have been a long term user of this phone and would recommend it very strongly. Nokia have crammed it full of features and yet made it both attractive and portable. The 6150 is extremely reliable. Having dropped it, sat on it and generally mistreated it, I can safely say that it is also extremely robust. Battery life is also excellent. The phone will not need recharging for a week if left alone, and one can talk for hours on it. In several years of use, it has only run out of battery once. The phone is also extremely easy to use. Menus are accessed through a 4 button system and are all self explanatory. The only negative points that I can think of are that the 6150 is begonning to look dated in comparison to Nokia's sleeker 8210 and 8850 models.
When you have to depend on communication in your work or in your freetime, you need a mobile phone you can count on. I have found that this is certainly the case with the 6150. It provides long and dependable operating times. And it operates in three networks, so more calls will get through more of the time. Mind you the Esat network can be a pain at times. The Nokia 6150 is one of the smaller dual band phone available, and I find that it provides the good operating times. According to the spec it stands by for up to 11 days with the standard battery and for up to 18 days with the extended battery. I only have the standard battery and I find that 10 days would be more accurate. Even if you are on the phone a lot, an hour in the optional desktop stand a few times a week should give you all the power you need. Overall if you do not require WAP on your phone the 6150 is a good choice.
