I had this phone in 2002. it was payed about 170 euros ( german marks was in that time about 300DM ) and it was soo cool...Best phone ever made by Nokia. Some guy stole it from me in 2006...i was soo sad...i love this phone...and i`m gonna buy him again just to have him :)))))
At the time this phone had one of the largest clearest displays.
The microphone was connected via terminals gold plated terminals withing a sliding plastic moth piece.
This made it possible for any dirt on the 2 tracks to disconnect your outgoing audio.
You really had to look after this phone well,it had a rolling clickable bar in center that you would navigate menus with.
Two people could even play a game via ir on it.
It was featured on a blockbusting film and rushed out - some 7110's work better now! years later after proper attention to the sliding mic mechanism.
The sliding feature looked cool but caused many of these to be returned on launch
Greaat Phone ever. I'm still using this phone. Still Works good. one of my best collection including nokia 6210
i have got this phone second hand, with a good condition, this phone is great ....
My Best friend Still uses this fone in their house, like a family fone, and i can't believe it still works.. the fone looks like it was sooo ready to die. He wrap it up with Rubber bands to prevent the fone from falling apart, some series of masking tapes and some inserts of paper.. if you know what i mean.. the line of the fone is SUN cellular, I call him and we talk over the line for hours. and that fone is what he use. wow.
To the long time users: I read comments about
the slider being kind of fragile and that it doesn´t
work properly anymore after a time, like it`s getting
loose, breaks easily or, due to damaged or loose or dirty etc. contacts, one has trouble to answer phone calls?! Since I am tired of multimedia cells with
software bugs I wanna get back to the old times with
phones like this one, reliable and well-crafted.
This slider prob is the only thing which is holding
me back buying one instead of the mighty 6310i (which
is three or four times more expensive - in new
condition). So, any comments?
got 2 unlocked 7110 nokias and 2 900gsm 8110i matrix fones , style icons that still turn heads especially the spring loaded slider on the 7110 shame the 8110i never had the spring (special effects made a one off for The Matrix part 1) so cool Nokia made the 7110 to mimick it but more features, batteries are so cheap on ebay for 7110 and Amazon for 8110, i use mine daily and the auto flip Ericsson T28. sweet.
I purchased this phone when it was the hottest thing on the market for around 120 GBP + 12 Month contract + 110 insurance. Expensive? NO! It lasted 4 years till 2003ish, nothing has come close.
So I just bought it again from ebay.
You wouldn't believe the kudos you get from this. This is the true techie phone, the flick slide gets nerds rubber necking all over the gaff. When I show them WAP google via its 14400 isdn link they start stuttering and look down at their iphones in shame. lol.
Franco, 20 Aug 2009Very good phone, I still use it and bought it back 8 times. :-Dthat's good to know. i thought i was the freaky one, bought the same 7110 for 5 times. i still use it until now.
