Have had this phone since May 2002 and it still working good. Only issues are the covers are not very durable...the screen on the original cover cracks easily. Original covers are expensive to replace. Imitation covers are very poor quality (poor fitting/keypad paint comes off easily).
On the 3rd year found the phone will sometimes turn off itself due to lose battery connection. Probably because it got dropped so many times. Fixed this by wedging a bit of paper in between the battery and the outer cover.
Overall a very good quality phone.
This is a 100% phone, nothing more. i really love it though now i owe a SE K750i. i miss my old Nk 5210. it was really a great phone
i love the 5210, i had it about 3 years ago and it was the best phone i ever had. I really miss it. Those old nokia's like 5210, 8810, 3310 are the really decent phones. They did the job of calling and did it well.
not a bad phone but despite it's rugged look it couldn't handle so many things... it was quite sensible ti shocks! and the battery was a failiure... the rest was ok!
My 2nd phone after the N3310.. it was the coolest phone in the market, and turn heads too... but now, the clam shell starts to peel of, the the side buttons and the shell release buttons are gone..but, overall, it was a good phone, nice design (urban style and rugged, and tough too... thnx nok.
I have been handling this phone for about three years and i have not come accross any problem in this phone. I think that it is just the phone that atheletes like me might want. The only problem is with the red coloured X-pres on shells. Their red colour fades away. Rest all is nice and well Other colours like Wave blue(the one i am using) retains its colour. If you are thinking that this phone is outdated then let me tell you only three upper models of this phone have come(5100, 5140, 5140i) which are better than this durable phone. 5210 is another name for durability.
this phone was handy! nice little phone good case for all th nocks and drops! still got it now but dont use it no more
This is the fone for playaz, locking the keypad is the thing. And you can kick it, toss it and throw it around. Nokia props for you guys. Had given to my galfriend but had to get it back and gave her a 3120 instead.
Can anyone pls kindly advice me if i could still get a 1st/2nd hand phone(if really stop production)of this model in the market? My bf has been so clumsy that he keeps dropping his hpS!! All are spoilt after the drop.. except this phone, i rem that it's the best phone cauze it's SOoooo shockproof for my clumsy bf. Haha.. Needed the phone urgently.. Thanks alot!
I have found sometimes when accessing the Video recorder the 256k screen starts to pixelate, i use a 1GB memory card and the video doesn't seem to go for very long, this is no good because i coat my balls in peanut butter and get FIDO to lick it off. Its not cheating.....
When I had the 5210 it was the happiest time of my life. Unfortunatly my boyfriend ran over it with his monster truck and it didnt survive. I tried to resucitate it but it was to late.
I love how much memory it had. I bought a 128MB memory card to put in it and I had hundreds of photos saved in it.
The camera quality was brilliant. It was a 7.5 Mega pixel camera. The best quality ever. The detail was great.
The bluetooth headset that came with it was awesome. The highest of quality. It was valued at $399 on its own and I got it for free.
I loved how it was water proof. I went swimming with it hundreds of times and it worked fine. My boyfriend took it to his work occasionally and he is a carpenter and he gets dust everywhere and it still worked fine.
I miss this phone greatly. I got it at a bargain price for only $99.
I wish I had another one to replace it with.
it's a nice phone.i have it for 2 years.and it's still functioning well.even if i have a new phone,i still use it.
this set is not nice? it's main problem is it becomes dirty after using a few days
I have a carkit for the 5210 but lost the phone and want to know if there are any other Nokia's with same inputs that will fit my carkit. I dont want to buy a new carkit. any ideas?
Hy ... i've just bought this phone from somebody ... and it works perfectly .. but there is a little problem, when i drop it from half a meter it reset ... well i think the sim card resets .. because the fone is not closing ... please help me ... i need your help ... thanks ...
I used this phone for about 3 years , i think it was the best phone i ever had , it's shockproof , water proof and all around a great phone!
can any one tell me how to break security code on my 5210 and put my own, because I dont know the old one and I can't restore factory settings
ive used this phone from december 2002 to date and i have never been let down.its simply excellent and i am in love with it.
I've been using this model for 2 years now. It's a good phone cauze it's shockproof for the clumsy me. The only problemS in this phone is that the housing of the phone fades...it lasted me for 6 months, then I have to change to a new one. The other problem is, the keypads are kinda small, my thumb tires easily whenever I txt a VERY LOOOOOOOOOOONG message.
