it always crashed when i had to send a long sms, the buttons were too close together and the battery life was lousy compared to the 6310 which replaced it. Reception wasnt great either.
But i admit that i dropped it MANY a time and a few times in the swimming pool - nothing happened to it. Still worked underwater.
5210 is Great. I bought a second hand 5210 3 years ago and it's still looking fine. Just the look. I threw it about 20 feet in the air and it's CPU is dead. Guess it's not strong enough.
I LOVE it it does everything that mobile phone should and its allmost impossible to break. Only problem is the microphone, that I'v had to change for 2 times. But im still using it. Ofcourse best thing is that its from my home country Finland (atleast nokia is from Finland notsure where my phone was made (probably in china :/ ))
I had this phone for 4 years! impossible to break it: droped it into the water, sand, droped fom 3 meters high...so resistant! ok the performance are not the best, especially at the end...But it was designed to be unbreakable, not to be a fashion andd high performance phone...
bought one of these when they first came out. i still have it. it has never gone wrong. it's had a hard life; been dropped, trod on, soaked and got covered in mud many times. replaced the cover easily when screen got to scratched to read. one day it'll need replacing - there will be nothing to compare...
Completely bad performance phone ! Dunno why Nokia had produced such type of phones !!
I've just buy a new Cellphone, it's call 5210. Oh! i never believe one mobile: Beautiful, Stylish, Strong and Manly... OH I love Nokia 5210 and maybe in Future i"ll be buy a 5140i. I like Nokia Sport 5 series (not 5300 and 5200 and 5700) Bravo
i think this phone one of the best phone built by nokia, the quality is great, good for people that drops there phone everytime. it just wont break, my god.
Gr8 phone I have ever had. First I had Nokia 3210, later I changed to Motorola E1000 but over a year only, I lost 400us. At last I found out Nokia 5210. Good. Great. Battery last 4 4 days more. I do not like the mono ring tones. I have a question. Nothing in phone outbox after I sent messages.
They don't make them like this anymore.
I have owned a 5210 for 5 years and it still works the same as the day I first used it.
My N73 lasted only 7 months, 5210 5 years and still going with same battery but new case.
This phone is simple, reliable and effective, it does what you need a phone to do.
i had this fone for 2 yrs and never changed it even when my dad gave me a K700i. but then i accidentally lost it in the camping trip. i cried when i couldnt find it anymore...
love this fone so much.....
Nokia lost a lot of money in this one.. coz the phone just dont break. LOL. thats the reason why we wont be seing these types of phone very soon. if another type of phone like this one will ever come out that would be very expensive.
This was my first phone. after 1,5 year i didnt like it anymore. I've tried to smash it but it didnt work. I've tried it even with putting it under the car of my dad and even then it didnt broke. So better dont buy this phone if you're a hypocrit..
(finally it worked destroying it with orange juice)
its a gr8 phone .no problems since 5 yrs .its fallen a thousand but still going strog i advice u 2 buy this phone at any cost.
This phone of mine has been dropped, run over, stood on and got wet more times than I can remember. I use it on site every day and have done for four years. If Nokia bring out another phone as tough as this one, I'd buy it.
very,very good phone-no problems in 4 years,forgot phone in my pocket,had it washed ,rinsed and spinned for 45 minutes in the washing machine---still going strong-
Very strong mobile i have 2 of them..can anybody answer to my question,what number is the latest software upgrade for 5210?
