I have had this phone since Jan 2011. It was OK until the battery deteriorated and suddenly needed charging twice daily. I'm not a heavy mobile user. A coulpe of texts and calls per day. I returned it via the retailer and it was returned with a different fault. It's not now possible to use the phone once the lock key has been activated. When pressed again a grey patterned screen appears with a flashing green arrow that says 'unlock'. Unfortunately it doesn't. It's not possible to use the phone at all once this has kicked in. None of the keys or the touchscreen responds.The only thing to do is take the battery out as it can't even be switched off. I've sent it back twice but it's been returned with the message 'it is working perfectly'. Well that's not the case. Has anyone else come across this problem?
Hi, I am totally disappointed with the quality of Nokia C3-01. I was Nokia only user since the very beginning. My last phone was 6300. This C3-01 is like cheap Asian copycats. The software is unusable and the manual is clueless, using this phone is totally unintuitive. RTFM is needed. At least 3 times I had to Google certain features on the net, because I did not find in the manual!
I was avoiding smart phones, to be on the safe side with phoning feature of Nokia phones… Nokia lost the focus, to many phones – below average - quality of user experience.
I just bought the Nokia c3-01 Touch and Type , 8 months back., I am facing problems like camera-on standby problem, touch is not working properly. I put my mobile to Nokia care centre, but even they also cant able to identify and rectify that problem. Without proper testing, why Nokia introduced this model? I want a solution to my problem or replacement of model.
well Ive had my C3-01 for nearly a year now & Im generally happy with it. I wasnt expecting it to perform like a smartphone & the reason i chose it is because mainly of its size - I cant be doing with these great big phones that seem to be coming back in again! My only real annoyance with it & its probably the same for most other phones now too, is the complete lack of a comprehensive instruction book - either in paper or available to download. Its like Nokia dont want their customers to be able to make use of all the phones functions!
W,T,F is that all about?
I know you can get help here & other forums but a complex device like a modern mobile phone should really come with a FULL instruction book!
Id even be happy to pay another £10 or so if it was available to the public? -- any thoughts Nokia?

I have the same problem here .. 2nd time now that my c3-01 touchscreen failure . i wait 1 month each time to fix .. This is a big problem and Nokia doesnt do anything about its own mistake . I gave 189 euros for this phone , i bought it in Greece and i want to get rip off it and buy one other . This time i wont go for a Nokia model , i had enough .. Shame on YOU NOKIA !!
Can you please tell me how your daughter sorted it. I have just got this phone and it has locked itself and can only get in if I take out the battery. I have read the handbook and still can't get the phone to unlock.
The touch pad problem is almost common in c3-01 model. I bought it 1 yr ago and had to give it to nokia care 3 times , they change my touch pad two times and dont know what I hv to face with it later....... no other problm yet...
I have encountered the same problem as yourself. I returned it via the retailer and it was returned with a different fault. It's not now possible to use the phone once the lock key has been activated. When pressed again a grey patterned screen appears with a flashing green arrow that says 'unlock'. Unfortunately it doesn't. It's not possible to use the phone at all once this has kicked in. None of the keys or the touchscreen responds.The only thing to do is take the battery out as it can't even be switched off. I've sent it back twice but it's been returned with the message 'it is working perfectly'. Well that's not the case. Has anyone else come across this problem? You said your daughter sorted it out in your next post, could you tell me how, so I can try and get my phone working again.
I used this phone for abot 6 months, the touch screen stopped, I replaced it from nokia local care centre (Softlogic) for (Rs. 3500.00) $27. But again it failed after about 6 months. what is with this countinuous issue.
