I remember my friend had that phone when he lived here in Kuopio, Finland. Now he lives some other place and has other phone. But great phone anyway, I think...
Looks like a brick, Weighs about the same as a brick, and by god, its as tough as a brick n' all!
The first nokia/mobile without an atenna, my first cell phone
I use this to smash the crab shell when im eating seafood, it is that sturdy!
This is one of the sturdiest phones I've ever seen...I was given a relative of this (3310--there's hardly any difference) when I was about 8 years old; I've dropped it several times and one time it literally flew at least two meters away and fell on the road while I was playing after school, and yet it still continued to work! And to think that it was my mom's since I was in kindergarten... and my mom's kind of clumsy with her phones too.
I think it's a great product and I still use it until now and it still runs 100% functional. I just replace the batery once in 2005 since I bought in 2003. Awesome product.
This phone is solid, proper oldskool nokia. You can drop it about fifty times and throw it against a wall and it'll still work, after you put it back together again that is lol. I bought a sony erricson k700i to replace it a while ago but the thing stopped working properly after about 8 months, basically on of the keys wore out. I'm going to get a KRZR to replace the 3330 though, because the thing will only store 10 text messages! It's really annoying having to delete them all the time when you're having a conversation with someone via text.
i like this phone i still have it i have not got a new one yet but i will but i think this phone is not half bad at all!!
I had this telefone about 3 years and I have only great things to tell.
A reliable workhorse of a phone, I used mine for nearly 5 years! Only problems that have arisen are from a life-expired battery (so it now occasionally shuts of mid-call) and a very stiff '3abc' key. Original price was £200 (as PAYT) from a Vodafone store in the UK, so has proven excellent value for money. It's WAP feature is underrated, but it is my reason for keeping hold of it for so long. Have since replaced it with a refurbished year-old 6100. I doubt I'll be using this one for 5 years!
i got this phone in 2001 and it lasted me over 3 years, i got an upgrade and give it to my granny, its still in great condition and works perfectly.
Definatly one of the greatest phones ever on the market and now i have a Samsung Z500 and its doing amazingly well! ive had it for about a year and a half and it is a great phone!
3330 the good old phone, i have it til 2002 and stil working after thosens of drops crashes and many other dirty things, best phone ever build.
well its quite a cool phone. can any one tell me where i can get free ringtones or composable tones for this phone? thanks for all who help.
I have a 3330 and I tell you , Its a must of a Phone. I have had the 3310 as well but this one is much better. It has´nt got those fancy functions like Camera Bluetooth Infrareds etc.Who cares. For me a Phone is used to make calls & receive, send SMS & receive. But man I like it. Its a very strong phone.
What can I say?, it does exactly what it says on the tin.
I have had this phone over 6 years and its absolutely bomb proof.
I have been up 40 feet on a building and dropped it(I nearly cried when it hit the ground and shattered into bits).
When I got back to the ground, I put the battery back into where it came out of and it lit up and started to work as if there was nothing wrong with it, I couldn`t believe it.
It also fell into a concrete mixer(on a truck)and when I managed to find it after I dischared nearly half the load, it was still working, as if nothing had happened.
Since my first episode, I have had a new facia(in original 3330 colours) and a new battery from ebay(all the spares are easy to obtain for this model just about anywhere.
I have also got a 3510i, but that is another story. From what I have read on this sight, its reputation is bombproof as well, not bad for a second hand phone that my sim card fits.
As I said before, this 3330 is absolutely bombproof.
Maybe Nokia and the other phone companys should take a leaf out of this phones reputation and produce these fancy phones that are reliable and not break down.
I was going to get a new phone, but I think that I won`t bother, I will stick with the ones that I have and see what happens.
The way things are going, I will probably end up saving a lot of money in the long run.
Cheers for now.
This phone will be a legend. i just love it.
Very strong i must say. Even if it's fallen badly for several times. all you have to do is restart.
its been 4 years and it never failed me, the batt's just great (eventho now i charge it every 2 days). I use it as receiver for my sms project; and still works.
i had this fone 4 2 weeks adn what did it do it stoped working but apart from that it was pretty good
An amazing workhorse. Had it with me now for more than 5 years. Finally the battery is giving up. I think this is the sturdiest, most easy to use phone ever built on this planet. I'll miss it when I buy my new mobile.
