I still have my original one and every now and then i get it out of the box plug the battery in and boot it up and this is on it's original charge from 10 year or more. they don't make them like they uses to.
Still using this phone to this date, purchased second hand in late 2000.
Macbeth, 11 Mar 2018Wait, when was this released???It was released in 1999.
I had this phone for a while and although it felt huge, it was my first foray into the world of 'WAP phones'!!! I was simply amazed that this phone could use the internet!!!
Great phone and awesome green metallic like colour!!!
Received notification from network provider that they are taking their 2G network down March 2018. Not happy as 2G has been reliable and I am sceptical about 3G & 4G coverage in NZ.
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2016You can get them both on eBay and Amazon... Some are far cheaper than others mind you. Many se... moreThe phone will be rendered useless by 20/20,all 2g networks will no longer be, that's Technology for you I'm afraid!
This was the one of the best phones I've ever had. It made you feel like a CEO even when I was a student. It made you feel like king and heads turn whenever flip out this awesomely beautiful and manly phone. I wish they can remake this thing like they did with the 3310.
leeianmallari, 07 Jul 2016 help me find and get this phone please!!!You can get them both on eBay and Amazon... Some are far cheaper than others mind you. Many second hand phone shops will also have a handset or two if you look hard enough!
My first "smartphone" back in 2003. But mine was the TDMA version, called Nokia 7160...
Incorrect, sir. The term 'smartphone' was in use many years before the ability to access Wi-Fi came to the mobile phone. What defined this as a smartphone, was it's ability to access a limited form of the internet, via WAP (Wireless Access Protocols, if I remember correctly...) and have downloadable content. Though this was very limited, as I recall. Stuff like ringtones, as opposed to proper Applications. A true smartphone was considered to be able to download Apps, so i'm not sure if it would count as the first, but definitely more advanced than previous phones...
averhielle, 09 Jan 2015the first smart phone ever!a smartphone is a phone that can connect to a wifi network. this is not a smart phone
This was my first mobile ever, that I bought and I still have it at home, as a souvenir. It works, no problem with that. Nice to find such good comments here.
Great phone, i remember when it was launched, it was in the beginning of the time when WAP was coming into reality, but never became a big thing. The scrollwheel was there for "browsing" news as you could download simple news text and such, the humble and simple begining of internet data to be widespread in the community. It was not the first phone with WAP but the first phone designed to use WAP with better ease. WAP tanked and was to expensive to use. But a solid phone never the less. The coolest feature of it was the springloaded tray Matrix style.. Although the original 8110 wasnt springloaded but modified to be one for The Matrix, this was the closest one to be as cool as Neo.
