Thanks for your explanation, Lucian. I only had little experience with a Motorola T191 GSM phone. Several times I needed to take the battery out of it (it would not shut down otherwise), but it didn't "forget" its time and date.
I like the big keyboard of 3510i, but resetting its time sounds unpleasant indeed. Maybe it is a bug in early firmware of this phone?
P.S. aren't GSM phones update their time and date automatically from the network, like my CDMA phone seems to be doing?
When you want to change your sim with other sim or you want to chenge the battery (lets suppose your battery is dead and you want to use one of your friend's), after starting the phone, you have to set again the time and date. This is not very pleasant, isn't it?
This happends when you want to use a data cable also, the time is reseted, so you are forced to set it very often.
Only the first mobile phones had this problem. My old one (nokia 7110, made in 2000) was ok from this point of view. Probably that's why I hate to set the time in such cases.
Hi Lucian, I am a newbe with GSM (been using CDMA most of the time), so can you explain the: "you can't even change sim without restarting the time". If resetting time after SIM change is needed, it isn't that bad. No other phones need doing so?
I am using this phone for past 8 months. It's not good coz it weighs more and moreover it hangs three times till now. Only thing to appreciate is the ringtones. Its damn good to hear. GPRS is not connecting many times since data transfer is low compared to SE phones. Now i am going to switch over to SE T610 which is very good for a good price.
my security code has changed and it is not the standerd one! please can some1 tell me how to change it. is there a puk code or something..... plz some1 reply
Before nokia 3510i I had a Nokia 7110. A very good phone that did everything I neeed - I'm talking about 7110, of corse.
About 3510i - this is a black point in the Nokia history. It has nothing to do with a normal phone, you can't even change sim without restarting the time. If you want to do a data transfer... pray that it will not be disconnected. Of corse, you can't use it this period. But why do you need it?
Very dissapointed :((
I think that nokia 3510i is a good phone. Very cheap. And with datacable (costs under 20€) you can download games polyphonic ringtones, wallpapers, games... So it's a good choice if u don't wanna have any extra stuff in your phone, like camera.
so...what can i say about this phone is that it's a very fun toy for young people,because it has java games,polyphonic ringtones and much more,that you can download right to your phone through GPRS.i'm one of those people,who don't need many unnecessary features just to be cool.and besides,it's one of the best phones for such a low price.so...i guess,for me it's not a problem that it is bigger than nokia 3310,because it's much lighter than nokia 3310 and the buttons,i find,are very easy to use,because they're soft.so,i reckon,this phone is just made 4 me :P
this phone is just too good.it was my 1st color phone,never gave any serious problems.For those who complain about the lack of features,remember this is targeted towards the lower end of the market,& v don't need any of those features.For others get a datacable,its cheap & u can install all kinds of wallpapers,poly tones,& java games.Anyway its time to say good bbye after using it for 18 mnths.
i don`t know what to say about it i think it`s cool it has beautiful colours and i want to buy one but i don`t have that kind of money because ...not because i don`t have i don`t deserve it but i will do my best to buy one it has a great design and i don`t know i think the colours are great and i don`t know how it sounds and if u think it`s ugly and big and whatever it`s u`re opinion because it`s you`re opinion:>but i hope i will buy one cause i rili want one this IS ROMANIA GOOD BYE TO ALL !
For normal working very good.I wanted to know whether it is GPRS and can i connect to my PC to access Internet.
it was a really good phone before i put it in the wash with my jeans and the screen stopped working :(. I might buy the same phone again, it did everything I wanted to do. The phone is really light and NOT very bulky or that big.
dis fone is sucks!!!! i will recommend SONY ERICSSON T310 because its have infrared port,have external camera,downloadable games,ETC..eventhough its only 256 colors it is great fone than 3510i!! THINK ABOUT IT MEN! NOKIA HAD ALWAYS THE SAME FEATURES, THERE'S NO DIFFERENCE IN OTHER NOKIA FONE! high price cheap fone!!!! SONY ERICSSON IS THE BEST MOBILE MANUFACTURER.. here in the philippines almost people here have nokia fone but when sony ericsson appear in the market they changed it into sony ericsson fone.. i admit my first cell is 5210 then i trade it into t68i then t310 because i realized nokia have high price cheap fone
