I got from 2 hand market. still work . I've been waiting for 2 years to find after using 5210.
nice batterry life.
but how can I get original casing since my previous one has broken and hard to find the comfort one in Ygy.
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
