i bought my 3510i in october 2004 and it is still with me today, working like a clock.it has been dropped more times than i can remember but it is such a robust model that it just keeps going. sure, by today's standards its basic but for sheer practicality it is unbeatable. the battery life is on the wane though and im sure its end is nigh but if the salesman had told me back then that for the 150 euros i paid for it that i would have 4 and more years of reliable service i would not have believed him. a legend of a phone and because of it, when i go to buy a new phone, i certainly will be buying a nokia.
I owned a 3510i in 2003 and it was honestly a great phone i miss the days when phones were just phones now theyv evolved into camera and mp3 player wannabe's, the 3510i i have to say is a great phone it did it all well great keypad great battery life and solid build and it was on the fashionable side.
basically its a proper phone and what phones should be
one of the best phones iv ever had, 3510i is a legend
i used to have this phone since dec 2003. it was stolen in 2005. i called my dad to buy me another one - 3510i. i had a conversation with my friend with this phone 5 min earlier before i log in here to post my comment. i think i would stay loyal with this for life! it's like a classic vintage car produced decades ago that never stops running! guess what, the battery lasted for a week before i recharged it again. thanks nokia! 3510i for life!!

im back after 1 Year, owner of this Legendary 3510i (well was)
it was wicked Loved owning it
it was my second phone ever, upgraded from a 3330 to this
never regretted it
bare in mind this was in 2003 Donkeys Years ago lol
3510i = Legend
I have no idea, actually. My phone was completely resetted about 1.5 years back and so the counters where also set to zero again.
Calltime is now on 450 hours. So that would mean that in five and a half years the total callduration would be about 1350 hours. Not too extreme.
The SMS-counter got resetted also,but now has 4587 recieved and 2496 send messages. So that would be around 15.000 recieved and 7500 send SMS-messages in five and a half years. Not that much, considering the fact I know some people who claim to send a thousand SMS-messages a month.
I'm just nog much of a phone-person I guess ;-)
TO MR C! and to everybody who still uses this nokia! How many hours have you talked...i've seen one opinion with 300 h! WOW
Yes, this phone is ugly. Yes, it's shaped like a brick. Yes, it's heavy. Yes, it's too big. Yes, it has a few annoying softwarebugs like suddenly locking the keypad while typing a SMS. Yes, it has an extremely low screenresolution, only a few colors and the display is not readable in bright daylight.
But still, I love this phone. Why? Because I bought this nice piece of electric engineering on 17 december 2002 (early christmas present for myself ;-) ), and it hasn't let me down ever since.
The batterytime is still very good, lasting almost a week with normal usage. Ofcourse, it lasted longer when it was new, but hey! What do you expect after almost 5 and a half years?
All my friends have bought at least several new phones after 2002, because their old ones would malfunction after a while. But not for me. The Nokia 3510i is build like a tank and made to last forever.
And yes: I would like a camera on my phone, and a MP3-player would be nice too, but as long as this 3510i is still working, I'm not buying another one. And altough the case is all scratched and dented, and the key's no longer have any visible numbers on them, I still think this phone will easily last me another five years, as long as the battery keeps working.
It really is a shame that newer phones aren't built so good as this one.
It's great phone! I still using it although im starting to thinking about retiring it as the battery last only a day or few calls. I admit - i never really liked it appearance but i don't care when it lasts like a tank. I droped it few time on a hard ground and nothing happened. It's full of scars and buttonedges are missing it's colors but thats the sign we've been together a long time. i love it.
Crazy, I have this phone 4years.
The Battery is still good, though when it gets to 3 bars, its pretty much gone.
Durable phone and nice to use
Even in narrow network range area especially in myanmar, it is very rare to out of service;
some of my friends' phones are out of service in some place, but my one is never. I love it very much.
Im having this phone since 2004 and my total call duration is not less than 3000hrs. Still I my talk time in the phone mostly more than 3hrs. Im very much satisfied with this phone. Once I dropped it on the road when I was riding my bike. No harm happened to the phone only few scrtch marks on the housing. It's very reliable durable phone one can have.I love my phone. Many thanks to NOKIA.
Very durable and reliable. Both me and my girlriend have ones. My girlfriend wetted my phone and after that we just left it aside for several months. It got quite rusty inside. Six months later I brought it in for repair out of curiosity. They repaired it (twice as the firs time was not good enough) and after that I have been using this phone for more than 3 years. Only minor accidents which I attribute to the wetting. My battery now dies for 3 days instead of the usual 6-7 days. Same with my girlfriend's phone.
I have a Nokia 3510i and is the must available and rezistent mobile phone.I'm lucky with this device, is my best friend, never let me alone, betwen -25 to +60 degree Celcius (from Europe to Africa). Thans a lot to NOKIA.
Already, I have the second Phone (Nokia 6280),but 3510i is everywhere with me.
