Just to add to the many people who have made this point before me: this is a fabulous phone with an amazing lifetime. I've had it over 7-8 years now (can't remember exactly when I got it so it could be even older) and it has never failed me. Sure it's a little scratched and the outer paint has worn off around the edges, but it's still a funky looking phone. My friends just can't get over how this phone has lasted as all of their ones fail on them year after year! Such a shame this has been discontinued!
i had this phone for 5 years and it has 0 (zero) problems. it is small but not to small. it looks great even for today standards. quality of the plastic is excellent. it fell many times on many hard surfaces with no problem for the phone. battery life is excellent too. today i have it stored for a backup of my n95 8gb
This is by far the best phone Nokia has ever made..I have used it for 6 years still not a zinch of a prob..have all the original colour covers and believe me, every time i take it out of my pouch everyone jst turns and luks..it an awesome phone..specially for a girl.. i wish the company can upgrade this phone with a gud camera and bluetooth..i would definitely buy it..:)
This is a ugly phone from Nokia. The key board is really ugly!Mybe the Nokias designer wont to create one original form to fit, but in my opinion this is not works.The other technical data i have not a skill.Im sure that is a good mobile phone, just quite the another Nokia models.
i still use it,and it's almost as new with only 99 hours talktime in the lifetimer(the one on the code)very good,sound,signal reception,super design,very durable,work perfectly...just amazing,all these new phones are just SH** ... i had a lot of them,but the old ones are the best,after all,for what i need a new one?for give/recieve phone calls and sms?with an old one i can do this AS SIMPLE AS IT CAN BE.
the most amazing phone nokia has ever made this is the best phone awsum battery backup ausum standby it is just amazing ...it even beats any mordern phone atleast for me
i have it from last 5 years and jsut amazing
how i miss this phone.
we went island hopping in '02, dropped it in the water near the beach one time, scooped it up, guess what? it still worked fine after drying it.
was in the middle of a storm last '04, the got wet in my shirt pocket, still working fine after drying it.
dropped it countless times, just had nicks and scratches, still functioned well.
i lost it in around '06 or '07, our german shepherd bit it and ran away, when the dog came back the phone was no longer with it.
how i wish current nokias are as durable! i dropped my n95 as i alighted from my suv, it broke into several pieces.
the inventor, 18 Jan 2009Nokia has had many great indipendant mobile phone designs in the past,this being one of them.T... moreabsolutely agree with u..nokia should stick to the old designs and incorporate those new features rather than become a follower
one of the best nokia phone..unique design, small size and light..used it since 2002 until 2007
I had this one is very Good.And must say that is the most beautiful nokia model
Nokia has had many great indipendant mobile phone designs in the past,this being one of them.Today nokia comes up with a new design,& the next day the market is filled with 30 same-design phones,that vary in feature n price.A really great idea,that would make many many many nokia users happy, would be to take the most popular phones from few years back,leave the design unchanged,and adapt the features to todays standard.Whoz with me?
I wanna have dis f0ne even if its a bit old! But this ph0ne way m0re cuter and better looking the 7250 or 7250i. I hope n0kia would upgrade and relaunch dis ph0ne with camera, mp3, mem0ry card slot, email and even wi-fi. And with its exact physical appearance, and i would definitely buy this ph0ne. Ü
i had this fone until now but recently it fell form my bell then its lcd turns blue with no display i guess it has already said good bye to life, time to move on....LOL
anyone that claims this phone to not be a good performer all around is completely right...this phone is a great performer! I normally go through 2-3 phones a year, and not cheap ones either, but this one, since its purchase in 2002 has stood the test of time. Water is certain death to Nokia phones, and anyone thats ever took their nokia for a swim knows that, but not this one, mine went swimming 3 times, and went for more than a handful of showers, and still lives. been run over by cars at low and high speeds, and dropped countless times on hard surfaces, and the phone still performs as it did out of the box. And as for the keypad not holding up to the riggers of texting, I text all day long, and the buttons still make a very pronounced clicking noise when pressed, very durable. if you are having issues with keypads, don't press the buttons so hard and they won't go bad on you, they never changed the manufacturing technique of the buttons any since this phone, they are no more durable now than they were back in 2002. I still have, and still use my 7210 due to its very compact size and extreme durability but as of 2007 have moved over to a Nokia N95-8GB as my main phone, will see how this little gem performs, and so far, swims, showers and drops aside, smokes every other phone on the planet in features and usabiity HANDS DOWN! Apple iPhones don't have a thing on a N95!!!
may, 06 May 2008i hv been using this phone since it launched. and now it's 2008 it served me rally long n reli... moremine went to the swimming pool. two days later he was back in its best, until he fell from a bus in the middle of a highway and i never saw it again..
one of the best phones ever made.
i hv been using this phone since it launched. and now it's 2008 it served me rally long n reliable. of coz comparing to the "new " phones now it has less features but i would high recommand it to ppl who just wan the basics.up til today. i'm still using everything as i got it the first day ( includes battery, covers and etc) and never had to repiar anything.. just some s/ware upgrades only
I think this cell phone looks like a picece of nothing so If I was you I would not buy it it looks ugly EEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
this is a good hand set but u get fed up while using it as up to nowerdays mobile phone this phone doesnt stand a chance........... hehe........... lov who eve reqads this
Awesome phone got one in 2003... got 2 that year in fact the first got stolen :( ... so the 2nd one has like 5yrs now, only thing that works lame after all these years is the battery like 1-2days.. 3 if I don't have calls, need to get a new one and just found the right shop. About covers... I like the orange ones, hard to find one these days around here at least. The keypads last enough, depend on how much u txt message :)
After a 5yrs usage I must say I'm impressed, it keeps going and going even tho it had lots of drops, throws etc...
I admit I kinda like new stuff like mp3, mp4, document viewer options, but I luv my 7210 been with me in good and bad times lol. I just scooped for some prices the other days for a phone I like... way too much considering its purpose so I'll stick with this one for some more time.
