will buy one this weekend. ^___^
toughest nokia phone i've used...
this is the phone that im using when I was in high school texting my first love :)
The most toughest (old) mobile phone. Nokia 5210 is now becoming rare. The 5210e (made in Gemany) with the arabic fix is even more rare. No camera, no GPS, no bluetooth, and no 3G data makes this mobile phone unhackable! no precise location can be detected only by the nearest transponder where it has been connected last. I can imagine in the future that celebrities and high officials will be wanting to use these mobile phones for sinful acts lol. I so want one of these :-(
Solid cell phone, survives a drop on almost any surface, has no issues with a bit of moisture, heat or dust and you can still get original NOKIA batteries, cases and other parts for it.
Having only GSM cell bands is not such a big disadvantage for voice calls and texts messages (SMS).
I got mine new for free when I extended my cell plan in 2004 and I am glad that I kept it, because I am back to using it again now. :-)
Still using the first one I bought , and I'm sure it was before 2002. WTF can't phone manufacturers make super durable rugged voice/text ONLY (with camera) and long long battery life that does nothing else but performs those functions flawlessly under extreme conditions ??
Looks very good. If only screen had more ppi I would consider buying it for my uncle...
this was my first ever handy phone, until now its working, i got this model year 2006 when i was in first yr high school, this phone is very durable, two thumbs up for this phone Good job NOKIA! =)
Anyone remember them being scented?? The covers smelled sooooo good! As well as the strapn that came with it!
It is a great little phone. I put a brand new genuine cover on my 5210, it's blue now and looks cool.
The orange backlight was very sweet that time. Siemens used to have orange displays and Nokia had green displays mostly.
And the coolest feature was the thermometer.
This was like the terminator.. Best way to describe it. Inside it had a naked plastic frame with buttons and seethrough plastic where you could see the PCB and chips. like a ribbed phone without chassis. The waterproof shell was splitt in the middle. a bottom and a top that snapped together. Hard to separate coz you had to press the sides a pull which required muscle fingers. Them fingers was also needed when typing on it. A nightmare in its own right. Hard rubber buttons.. A nightmare to use.
This was the best simple phone NOKIA has ever made. I hope Nokia can re manufacture this it with the new specifics. It will be a hit
