It's simple, small, good standby time, and almost impossible to break and have all the basic functions. It's a keeper:)
santhosh shet, 06 Mar 2009its a fantastic phone i want 2 buy this phone for any costReally? Even at $300, for something that is almost ten years old now. No bluetooth, mms, nothing but the radio. Try ebay or better ye retrobrick.com sell some old clasics but I think the 8310 is still relatively modern to be considered a classic. Try that site out.

You don't know what you're missing out on with Nokia N97, a new rumored touchscreen communicator, Samsung Omnia HD, samsung INNOV8, LG Viewty 2 with 8Mp, better yet, get a sony ericsson C905 in copper gold. Even the basic entry SE J132 would be a wise upgrade for less than a bag of fish and chips and it comes equipped with fm radio, torch and colour screen!
This is my seventh year using this phone with this battery every day. Work that out! Compare a new Nokia with the 8310 after a small drop on the ground; new Nokia features-nil (except for a handful of broken plastic), 8310 Phone calls- yes Text-yes Radio-yes and still one of the smallest Nokias ever made. Although I am upgrading to a new Nokia this month, after seven years it's time to get a new one.
I think there is nothing wrong with this phone , if you want just to receive and make a call this phone is fine cause these latest phones you go and spend alot of money on them and then the phone breaks , then what you have to buy another one that is going to cost you alot of money but this phone is cheap but strong ,i think this phone is ideal for me , hope you feel the same.

Excuse me sir, bu... moreWell, the 8310 was good in it's day and s the build was good unlike some Nokias today. The radio was pretty good and that screen was just gorgeous,shared the same blue lighting as the 8850 series. But don't diss the classics, they are what they are, classics! I prefer this over the 6310i

Excuse me sir, but even the lowest spec phones have a radio today and have more processing power than this, don't even compare this to an Android or WinMo 7 smartphone circa 2010, you'll only be laughed at for being a philistine.

Best phone nokia have released. The radio on this was awesome and the menu was very easy to navigate. Also is still the best looking phone to date especially with the blue and white cover. Love the way the lights shine shrough the keypad. Much better than most nokias today

Melia, 10 Jan 2009This phone has been with me for a long time..about ten years.and it's still works perfectly, d... moreten years? are u sure? ten years ago NOKIA just even started mobile phone division.. which they launch first mobile phones (BIG like bricks. This mobile phones is launched around 2001 - 2002 which is only 6 - 7 years ago :P LOL
nice phone. 1st nokia phone ever to have an fm rcvr. one of the smallest & has nice colors also, was using the blue & yellow
Ive been using this phone lately because my samsumg u700 broke.. not because of a fall or because i spilled something on it.. it just broke, so unreliable
anyways been using this one and even played snake 2 with a friend of mine who had it from 8 years ago like me.. these are awesome and should be remade
battery is still going at its best!
kitty, 29 Jan 2009I just bought one (secondhand), because I'm fed up with modern mobile phones. there is just to... moreoh yeah, and I like the fact that it is made in Finland and not in China :)
and the design is the BEST.
I've had a 7260 which is made in Germany, I gave that one to my mum and she adores it.
it's so much fun to read all these reviews about the 8310, it proves I'm not mad because I'm so mad about this phone :)
