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
my first handphone....very nice...the keypad is so hard i think, the orange light was so bright, i use this phone over 4 year and it's never had a trouble...now i still have this phone on boxes with all original part of package...realy miss this phone *thumbup*
One of the most memorable phone I've ever had. Through difficult times, heartaches, romances, happiness and sadness, this phone had been with me until one day it was stolen from me. I still remember the ringtone when a call from someone I've been waiting for calls me. Good times..
Though still i didn't use this phone but i wanna get this phone.If it is possible.

I've had 2 of these. I only had to replace the first one because I spilt milk over it. The second one has been dropped down 5 flights of concrete steps (at the same time)and still works after 10 years although the keypad is now missing. I only keep it now for sentimental reasons (texts from my late sister on it) All in all a reliable and almost indestructable phone.
I must say wow! I'm still using it until today after i posted my comment a year ago. The only difference is that my rubber casing is now totally shredded and only the plastic casing is left, but still, it works brilliantly! Phone battery is now showing its age (6yrs to date) but still suffice to reach 2 to 3 days of stand-by time. Brilliant phone indeed! Nothing short of being a legend!
