i've got my unit from my family, they gave to me as a birthday gift. the moment i opened the gift wrapper and saw the box, i immediately thought that it contained something else besides a cellphone cause the box is rugged and worn out.when i opened the box, there it was, the phone..one look and i could tell its fake cause 1) the box doesn't have nokia authentication sticker and the IMEI sticker, and its wornout; 2) the phone and its accessories are wrapped in plastic (not zip bags), 3) missing accessories that are printed on the box that should have been there, 4)manual is printed on newsprint-like paper (first time i saw this kind). and when i turned on the phone, more tell-tale signs appeared: 1) very very narrow viewing angle (jus a very, very little tilt up or down the screen goes white); 2) speaker has static sound; 3)screen turns black when backlight turns off,4) screensaver is never displayed; 5) i can't seem to find the hands-free feature, 6)miss-spelled function key "shoutcut", i do believe it's "shortcut", and a lot more flaws that i may not have found yet (haven't tried and compared the cam yet).. but luckily i use my phone just to send sms and make/receive calls.. other than that, any added features are just bonuses to me,which i really don't use a lot..and really, i can't complain cause my family gave it it me even though i didn't ask for a new phone and they were short on budget ( bought just a third of the price of originals)..and, its way, way better than my previous phone (8210)..so there, i still love it even if my unit is crappy, but i do think that the originals are great.. but, that's just me...
i have a serious problem with my set.. the screen is turning white from inside at the corners.. in bright sunlight the screen looks fully white as if there is a layer of whiteness on the inner screen.. plz can anyone tell me watto do?.. will the problem be solved if taken to service centre??
I won a Nokia 5310 (latest one).
I have 2 queries:
1. How to change the backlight time (in my mobile, it's default 20 sec; I want to reduce the time to save battery power )?
2. How to increase the volume of Alarm?
Can you please help me out. Reply me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm unable to use Operamini. When I try to do Network setup it failed to connect to internet. But I can browse internet from ny phone. Can any one help me regarding this?
My phone is recogonized and registered to the Nokia site and services using its own IMEI number.. It was bought from an authorized dealer and also costed the same as of any 5310.. Still it sucks too much.. Disqusting software.. I even updated it using Nokia updater.. Fed up with it...
Hi i have my Nokia 5310 bout a month now an my battery gives me bout a day and half charge if i talk for 20 mins straight the bars start goin down i recondition my battery everything plus if i use my music player the battery life completely goes i love my phone but i hate my battery
My take on this tiny pack of gum AKA Nokia 5310.
First of all let me note I have updated mine to the LATEST firmware which is 7.0.1.
Even if your phone is unlocked to nasty services there ARE ways you can obtain 7.0.1 firmware. Do your research and only go forth with it if you know what you are doing. Do this in your first 30 days if you are smart ;) so that if you brock it you can return it.
(I upgraded from 3.63)
This firmware means:
~20% LOUDER Speakerphone and Ringtones
~35% Improved music clarity and the EQ is now flawless. With headphones the sound is clearer than my ipod nano.
~Camera is a tad less blurry (not a big improvement, maybe 5 to 7 %
Upgrading your firmware from 3.63 to 5.81 or higher gives this phone twice it's worth. TRUT ME. I went from slightly dissapointed to OMGTHISPHONEROX!!!! after the upgrade. I can't stress this enough.
So now for the actual review.
I won't say what has been said so far. Ill say it's an amazing phone.
I have dropped it numerous times and I'll have you know, altho this phone is very tiny and made completely of plastic (no metal back plate) it can take a beating!!! I've dropped it from about 5 foot straight down on concrete on several ocasions and it is working perfectly.
The 3.5 mm headphone jack is very very sturdy. This phone sits in my pocket with headphones connected all day and as you can imagine it shifts and pulls on the connector from side to side. Given the thinness of the phone I would think it would get busted in no time BUT, what I noticed is that unlike some phones, the connector is not only bound to the electric board inside the phone, but also bound to the hard plastic case of the phone. So that thing won't shift on you and go bad like you would think.
This phone has a good design, pretty durable given it's size.
Another thing to note is the battery life which blew me away. I listen to music on my phone EVERY time I am not in my classes or at home or sleeping. Loudspeaker when I am with my friends or in non dangerous areas (LOL) and I can pull like 2 days on my battery. But I usually recharge it every night.
Worth the price. Buy it unlocked for cheap and unbrand/unlock it yourself. 300$ phone for under 40$ with a plan lol...
I FORGOT TO ADD!!! IF U mess up the case like get dents scratches on any part side or face of your phone, fret NOT! the WHOLE outside of the phone can be changed (to different colors too!!!) i found some nice ones on ebay.
Ratings(considering firmware 5.81 or greater):
Music Player: 10/10
Screen Quality: 10/10
Battery Life: 9 ~ 9.5 /10
plzzz...plzzz...any1 help me out...the volume is very very low..i was asked to update the nokia software to have a beta volume..i feel there is no change even after updatin the 07.01 software..!!!!..wat shall i do..
I think it should also be clear that nokia fones assembled in china is different from the fake nokia phones also made in china. the first still conforms to the standard so it should work well like the rest of its co-models assembled in other accredited countries, wyl the latter rili sucks big time so don't buy it. It easy to tell whether a nokia fone is fake or orig, by its looks you can tell if its fake or not. fake nokias looks lousy and rubbish. I've seemn many of it in my country. But they can't fool me..Go for the original..
i've dis phone in red and black color.. but my themes are in blue color.. i dont like my themes can anybody tell me from where i can get the original red and black nokia themes for my 5310..
To those annoying people hu hav a bad specs.,
U'R USING CHINA PHONES!! This site is for ORIGINAL Nokia™ only!! D fon u'r using is a CHINA PHONE!! k? And don't upgrade it coz Nokia wil NOT recognize it due to unknown serial number! Upgrade only d finland made.
hayyyyy. how yall doing????? da fone is da bomb digity how dare u controdict its software im disgusted :|
Jules, 02 Sep 2008Hi, My Nokia 5310 is locked. That happened few days ago. I restore all the factory setting an... moreThe last four digits of your phone number is the code. If that don't work then try the last four digit of your SS#.
Ive had this cell since 3 months.. But to my luck had only the oppurtunity to use it for 3 weeks.. It worked fine for the first 3 weeks.. I loved this cell for what it gave me.. But now , it gets a software corruption problem.. I've claimed warranty 2 times.. But still the phone suddenly fails to boot after I switch it off.. The rest 2 months its been in service centres in Dubai from where it was bought and in India where I reside.. Im fed up with this thing... I payed for something good and dont even have anything to communicate with... Im going to sell this damn thing.. I swear..
I bought this phone rite after its launch n i must say that i had the worst experience of my life...The screen goes black anytime without any reason..secondly its ringing volume is too slow..3 times i claimed its warranty but nothing good happened...at last i sold this cell phone and promised never to have nokia cell phone again in my life.
I bought this phone yesterday and man its an awesome phone to have...it has everything....its like music in your hand...lolz..the sound system is awesome..love this phone...lolz
Has anyone had any problems with the screen(going black) and certain keys being hard to press?
