V3 black-dont waste your time
has anyone actually broke one????
talk about "hard to kill"...1996, 10 yr old,
dropped off 3rd floor balcony still works better than a 6 month old v3 black. i recon if i got a flat tyre in my car i could prop up my car with it.....(daihatsu charade 700 kgs)
v3 black-dont waste ur time
the first ever fone i had 4yrs ago and it's still in gud condition....it's incredible..the best.,
like many others this was my first phone. got it in 1999, it's still lying around somewhere in my parents house. this is a brilliant and durable phone. trully a brick, but if they brought this one out today with a color screen, bluetooth and mp3's i would buy it in a heartbeat.
my dad bought my mother a contract when she went to hospital with cancer and got this phone with the contract. she already had another phone so he ended up giving me this phone with a pay as you go sim card. this phone was my life line, connecting me with my family even while i was in school.
BEST PHONE EVER!!!
Solid as a brick. (Was often referred to as one too) Drove the car with it on the roof numerous times and It was fine. It never skipped a beat.
my first ever phone. it lasted 4 years too bad i lost it to muggers. it was only repaired once under my care and its the lcd. but other than that, its numero uno in terms of phone strength and sturdiness. truly one of the best phones nokia has ever made. simple dsign, powerful, and user friendly.
my first cellphone..i used to have one with no antenna.. i used to think it was cool..
in addition to this, my mom still use this fone and the hell to this .. she placed a rubber band around the phone since the battery is kinda loose.. and the lcd is blurred but one good thing is that it still works and i love playing the games on it..
peace out !!! hi jeff!!
well, i am so proud of this phone, since as everyone has been saying that this is the best phone ever built.. honestly i never had this one but my mom still owns this.. i consider this an inheritance.. know why? a bit story about this phone.. my cousin first had it, a gift from her suitor, then she gave it to ma bro then and after some months my bro bought a new phone and gave it to ma mom... so until now ma mom uses it!!haha..funny but true.. it's a phone for keeps!!
WOW! The Phone That DESERVES The Title THE WAR MACHINE! I Have One (Date 20-11-98) !!!
You can use this phone for talking, SMS, games and, of course, for self-defence!!! :)
You can hit any dog bigger than you and make it run away from you forever (LIKE I DID) :)
In ONE word, THE BEST MOBILE PHONE EVER MADE!!!
My First mobile - Dropped it 180m of a tower and although the housing broke (eailsy replaced) the phone was in perfect condition!!!!! LOL
the thing is.... this phone is just a phone. It was my first ever contract mobile and it was possibly the most used - would last a week between charges, could drop it down the stairs, pick it up and keep talking, it was so reliable.
so yeah it IS the best phone nokia have made - i've just got a 6280 and it's nice, but i've had it three days and had 4 crashes and charged it three times. the 5110 is what phones were meant to be like.
Im a celphone technician... I believe this is Nokia's most durable phone. I wish they can design a new phone with the toughness of 5110.
