I have used this phone 5 years ago...
I still keep it at home, it has cool design, good functions as old phone... I own Nokia N95 now, trust me buy NOKIA nothing else :)
Just remembered something... Actually it did have some rubbish games... snowboard was terrible but I wanted to add one other thing.
This is my fallback phone... everytime one of my new delicate phones dies I go back to this... it is uttery indestructable and seemingly, like the terminator, it absolutely will not stop :)
This was the last good phone I had, I've had 2 Sony ericsson and a samsung since and they're all too damn clever for their own good this is solid reliable sturdy, allows custom ringtones and message tones and thats about it... No camera no fancy pants internet malarky and no rubbish games... The OS was rock solid too... everything I've had since lags and crashes constantly... Unfortunately I think this was pretty much the last good phone they made... allegedly their tech peaked around this point and now its all laggy and unweildy with 5megapixel MMS Wap enabled pontlessness capabilities :(
i have this for few years from now and i can tell that this phone is the best choice i've ever made; this little thing is strong as a bull, i drop it many times and it doesn't break
the battery life time is very good if is new ,my battery has 3 years and it still runs for 4 days
Its hard for me to compare phones, as I've had just the one 8310 since 2001, and ITS A BRILLIANT PHONE!!! Not a single problem in six years, study, perfect size, used it across the world. I've a couple of friends who have also had them that long, it really is simply a classic model
This phone was one of my favorites until it died on me last year. I still have a bunch of official Nokia faceplates that I don't know what to do with and every time I see that I think back at how great the phone was. I am now using the Samsung t809 and it's also a great phone, with a lot of things that the 8310 doesn't have, but I would still pick this phone over the t809 if I had a choice. This has got to be the best phone I've used.
i've had this phone since 2002 it's been chucked, dropped, drowned, u name it it's been thru it, but it still works just like the day i bought it, probably the most reliable and unbreakable phone out there
this phones unbreakable........ the only way to get rid of it is if you give it someone otherwise its always gonna be there to use
i dropped it in the bath laods of times let it fry for 2 days and it still works
its been in the sink full of water for over 5 minutes still works
i smashed it on the floor more then 100 times still works
ive smashed it against the walls and it still works
do everything and it still works dont no how it still works but its just unbreakable
most reliable phone ever
The new 8310 should have a colour screen, polyphonic ringtone, mp3, mp4, aac, aac+, wav, video support and card slot based on its original sleek, cute, stylish, modern design, than it will rock and rave.
I don't think Nokia is going to come up with a new version of the Nokia 8310 looking at the direction Nokia is taking, currently making ugly blocky phones. I like the Nokia 8310, had the black one and it is damn cute, modern, stylish and sexy.I wish Nokia could make all their phones including 3G phones look like the 8310.
i have this phone about 3-4 years and i cant give up from him.I pos this comment because today it drooped me in to the river after 10 hours my phone works fine
Some people voted this phone as a "stupid phone".. But I really like this tiny little cute phone, and I still have it for the last 6 years!! Maybe Nokia will develop the next generation of this 8310.. I'm waiting guys... !!
My dad got this phone when it was first released on a contract. he dropped it a good few times and we now keep it as a spare phone. my mum dropped it in the washing machine and after a full wash, i let it dry out for a day and it works perfect!! i am using it at the moment as my very unreliable motorola v3 just blanked out on me! the Nokia 8310 is wicked!
Wow... I see everyone loves this phone... well it's obviuos, because it's a pretty good phone, I used mine for 6 years and has no problems .... I really liked it, best phone I've ever had.. :D so if someone wants to buy this phone, than just go for it! :D
this is not '1 of the best phones'
..its the best phone ever been built
iv had mine for 8 years, its never let me down. its fell from stairs, out of pockets while running etc..and this phone never broke on me.
iv still got the original orange cover, white with white lights, its got few scratches on the cover, which cud be replaced with a new cover. i tend to take care of my phone, i guess its part of me now.
