What a phone!!!
Used the phone for 6 years. Clumsy me dropped it into a glass of orange juice..took it to the Nokia service centre who advsied me to throw it out. Has a friend of mine strip it and wash the phone in plain water. Guess what it worked for two years without a hitch. Will pick up 3 pieces if available in India. Sady they don't make phones like this anymore.
This is the weirdest phone ever. It is expensive and reasonably new yet is a brick with a b&w screen and bluetooth???
Bring back the 6310i and don't fiddle with it, it's the best phone ever made for a man's fingers!!!!!!!
very important telephone.it's quite necessary for an business man.very good.
It has bluetooth but it doesn't seem to connect with handsfree gadget. I'm no tech whiz but i wonder if it can be used via handsfree gadget of Motorola?
i've been using mine since 2004 and i just can't live without it. its efficiency and battery life is superb and its keypads are still soft after years of use and abuse.
Does anybody know a modern phone with as good battery life? I'm looking for something that will act as a 3G modem but otherwise I don't need anything fancy.
its a rare gem... still using it after its release 5 years before...
Excellent... still as good and durable as it was 5 years ago... I am still using it and battery life is amazing... Nokia phones these days do not have the durability and quality as compared to older sets...
My aunt who is an executive vice president of a big university is still using this phone.
I repaired it once and was amazed by the battery and the hand working of it. I hope nokia will still make new phones with an attitude like the old ones..
I have used this phone for 5 years and no any mobile take place of this. it is rally phone.
The 6310i is a very practical and user friendly the battery life the bluetooth n infrared all together push the phone to a number 1 position. If we compare the latest phones to this they have color display camera and memory nothing more to gas about. a nutshell 6310i is a VFM(Value for money)
Nokia are trying to market the E50 as the new 6310 but it doesn't have the same class or presence. Battery-life on the 6310 is unsurpassable. I change my mobile/cell phone every six months but always keep my 6310 as my 100% reliable stand-by phone. It's pure business class.
6310i's sound quality and signal receival stands ABOVE AND BEYOND any other telephone offered at the time of this writing.A girl firstly laughed at my old,refurbished 6310i and then when she had to make a call with it because her phone(a Nokia slider)had erratic signal was simply awed:"It's like talking through a line phone".If Nokia believes it is unprofitable to reincarnate this true mobile phone then someone else should simply buy the rights on it and reproduce it as is.IBM type M keyboards are an example of this:These old,heavy and wonderfully clickey keyboards are still being produced but not from IBM:The copyrights have been acquired by a company named Unicomp and this classic electronic-era design(much like 6310i is already being hailed through these very pages)is being reproduced new and to original specs and offered to anyone who wants a true keyboard.And hell,WE WANT A TRUE MOBILE PHONE.
The only criticism i have against 6310i is the somewhat quiet ringing and vibration.Apart from that it is a superb and very much sought after phone,even as second hand.It is beautifully crafted and excellently balanced.Menus are VERY fast(monochrome screen plays its part here)and intuitive.Connectivity options are more than enough,and battery life unbeatable.6310i simply stands in it's own class with NO comparable phone from any manufacturer.Nokia should simply update some details and reissue it as it is.period.
We have 2 of this phone and both are in perfect condition till now. I got mine for almost 4 1/2 years now, Since then I had drop it several times but still it works perfectly fine.. Attractive design, Nice balance, Perfect battery life.. Just have to charge it once a week.. Simply Amazing! Its a collectors item.. hahaha :p ... With the phone trends nowadays some would say this is a piece of Sh!t, what a crap.. but hey, back then I can say this is the best phone of its time... "The 6310i Era" ... :) Hope Nokia Reincarnate this phone with some kick-ass Specs!!
