Re: C3-01 Problems and Limitations

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?

Re: C3-01 Problems and Limitations

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.

All C-series phones are same. C-series means problem.

Re: C3-01 Problems and Limitations

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.

Re: C3-01 Problems and Limitations

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?

Re: C3-01 Problems and Limitations

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.

Re: C3-01 Problems and Limitations

Hi,

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.

Thanks
