Most durable phone Noia ever made. Got one in 2003 and it is still used as my back up.
Nokia, please make 2009-2010 model. 5100 is a so great phone that I will never scrap it (even if I do not use the phone anymore). Please also do not forget Gps as in 3720 model.
Have the phone for about 5 years now, and it still won't break down. The only downside are the buttons, which don't work to well any more. Finally time for a new phone, but still this one I'll happily keep as my backup phone.
User-of-names, 18 May 2009I have this phone from when it first came out, which is a long time ago, I can´t remember exac... moreDo you know where in Canada I can get a new battery and new charger for this phone?
I HATE it by the way.
The NOKIA rep who sold it to me (while I was vacationing in Denmark) promised it would work anywhere in the World. I was living and working in East Asia. Well this expensive thing sat in my trunk in Japan and South Korea for 6 years. I had to buy another phone. It does not work in those countries.
I lost the charger in my travels and now 6 years after purchase, the battery is likely dead. The only time I was able to use it was for 6 months in 2005 when I was back in Canada on vacation.
There is no number pad cover on the phone, so it dialed numbers on its own in my bag as I walked around.
Now in 2009, merchants here tell me, it will cost less to buy a new phone than to get it going again. What a ripoff.
I have this phone from when it first came out, which is a long time ago, I can´t remember exactly. It still works great, with good battery life even for modern standards. What is most impressive is this phone´s durability, amazing, because my previous phones always died because of water damage/heavy usage etc. I have thrown it around several times to demonstrate it´s indestructablity to my friends, it has been to beach where many a phone find its grave due to sand, it also does not fear rain. It was pretty cutting edge for its time, it´s dated now obviously but if Nokia would launch a 2009 version of this I would totally buy it, like a bit thinner and add GPS and a small camera maybe.
My 4th Phone!! This is the first Nokia phone which i bought.. I saved all my money to buy this phone in the year 2004 and i am using it up to now without needing to change a battery!! My Battery is still working perfectly... THis is the best Phone that Nokia every made.. I Love this phone
