I can't believe nobody of you people mentioned that this is the only phone that has 'Accept reply cost' feature for sending SMS (you can pay for the one you send and the one that was replied). I had one, 8110 (model from 1996), and now I bought another one, also plain 8110. But, there is 8110i model (which was actually in the movie), from 1998 - GSMArena does make mistakes :) I would like to buy 8110i (it has 10 menu features, instead of 7 in the plain, and light gray border around the screen, instead dark gray). Contact me for more information, if interesed.
it was my first phone & i loved to use it. it is very user freindly & easy to use.
Hello folks...The deal is what our fiend rightly said...It is for those fanatic phone collectors...I too own one...I have to get it repaired though...But I am a proud owner if 8110 even if it does not work!!!
The phone got immortalized in the movie "The Matrix" as this is the phone Neo uses to contact Morpheus ...
However, if i were Morpeus i wouldnt choose that phone to send to Neo to contact me :-P LoL. Even for its time it was a bulky and big phone.
I Guess the movie producers choosed it because of its high-tech ( at least by 1999 standards ) looks
yep the Nokia Banana...I used to have one, darn I still feel sad for selling it :s
I just got this phone on a $99 plan with $45 for the phone. Im so exited, it actually holds 125 contact! im lovin this phone!! i can use it when im travelling on my cougar.
Matrix jas it too i thin
This isn't the nokia banana fone is it because my dad used to have one back in 1997, damn I loved this fone, it was wicked back then!
Nice phone, we've got this one at home. We only use it with the French Sim card (I live in Belgium, near the French border). But the battery is so dead!!! We have to leave it plugged all the time!
i rate this phone i used ti have one but daftly gave it away i think ill buy it it the one from matrix film
Ok, I've had this phone. ITS NOT AUTO SLIDING!
The only "auto" sliding phone was the Nokia 7110, which had a little silver button in the back that when you pressed it, it would "auto" slide.
Do a search on google with the words
And you should see pictures of it both in front and back. You'll see the little silver button =)
Yes it does auto slide, i got it when it first came out and there are two different versions, one has the slide and one doesn't. Europe got the none autoslide.
nope its only in the movies. even inthe movies believe it or not they use their hands to open it the must have loosened the mechanism so it drpos easily. any the answer is no its not an automatic opening.
Can someone of owners of this phone model say, if it's really "self-sliding", or it's shown so only in movie?
The wrong choice to replace my 2110 in 1996. Nice shape but reception a real nightmare. Had to live with it for a year and a half. Then thank God came the 6110...
Just bought one the other day for €30. Needs a new battery, but those are for sale for €10. I love it's shape and simplicity and the fact that Morpheus used it to call Neo ;-)
A "must have" for all handphone collectors. Forever remembered as the "Matrix" phone.
There's quite a few 8110s floating around on ebay and the like in the US and Europe. Got one today for £5, it just about works, needs a new battery. Can get those too. Good signal on what it calls Cellnet!
Impressive for it's age! I love the old Nokias, and this being the matrix model, I had to have one. A classic.
