This phone is disappointing,unusual for Nokia.Poor reception quality,useless software that dumps your phonebook.Strange extras that don't work very well like the radio that only picks up one station,or all the ring tones that are on an 8250.Nokia can do better than this,my two samples crashed several times during calls.
Best go for a T39 if you want a phone that does it all,after all the 8310 looks like it should be sold in sweet shop,though only after a few days of use its just another Nokia but a not a very good one.I've used Nokia for 4 years,not any more.
Heres my top 5 GPRS phones I've tested.
Nokia vs Ericsson
Should be intresting........
This is what the renowned site www.wap.com writes about 8310, and I agree!
"This is not an attractive design. The result is a somewhat asymmetrical handset that looks like a small toy. It looks like the design favourite Nokia has made a couple of minor mistakes that have resulted in a (not so) good-looking phone."
- A plastic toy!
I am located in Mumbai (Bombay), India and wants to buy against Indian Rupees one new and in perfect working condition Nokia 8310 or 6310 or 8250 or 8850 mobile phone handst with Li battery and its original charger, all shuld be made in Japan / USA / UK / Germany and to be delivered in Mumbai. Please contact with price etc.
If you are intersted in buying Nokia 8310's now in the UK do not hesitate to contact me...they are not only excellent but also have been delayed for general release until late December!
I would go for Nokia anyday of the week, simply because they are far easier and quicker to use, have extra covers in case of damage. The T39 is already free on contract,in most places which shows its not holding its value or selling too well. When Ericcson and others decide to make their phones as simple to use as Nokia, and do away with external aerials maybe it will be a choice to make. Until then its no contest.
I was using a t39.....but now I have a real 8310 and I'm using it on BT Cellnet with GPRS.
What a difficult choice.
The Nokia has more looks appeal while the Ericsson has high end features.
The Nokia is definitely easyer to use.
All the reviews I've read on here seem to be from people who wish they had one,DREAMERS
Nokia vs Ericsson.......
This phone has excellent specifications, it is coming out in uk for £150 on contract, also not too bad for new phone - BUT - it looks too much like a TOY!
does anyone know if this thing is easy with the furious messager? pls tell me NOWW...
Hey Mark, that guy stole my name, help me.
his name is Ash damn it, damn it, DAMN IT!
Well i wrote that msg to give the phone a chance..... stop payin it out damn it!
a little more features would be great, nokia need to think big instead of thinking of previous models with a couple of add on's.
Hey im just a 17 fela that works for Optus in Canberra, and i must say this is one of the best mobiles i have seen in a while, no doubt the features and visual magnatism of this phone will make it a very popular phone for a long time to come, nokia have hit the jackpot here.
this phone doesn't cater for people with fat fingers like me. i am fat and ugly.
