The 8850 I got from Foneco.co.uk was refurbished. It had a brand new shell so no scratches, a new battery, original charger and an original Nokia 8850 box. Still going strong!
It's made of titanium..
Hry guys! Mine has a white led screen. U know why?? Did u know it comes whith 2 different screen colors? (white/blue)
i'm using this phone as a spare phone.. use it only when going hike/mountain/etc...
but i like it a lot... very nice looking...
i was just wondering, is the casing made of aluminium?? coz last time i noticed a dent on the back casing.. since when did plastics have dents????
just wanted to know, is it actually made of metal???
the sweetest phone ever. I want buy it, but can not find it. Nokia make it agin.
GUYS! I'm gonna get this phone as a spare phone. ONE question. How many sms can this baby store? Thanks!
bob,you are perfectly right!!! i have an ideea:let's send a letter to nokia,signed by gsmarena users,in order to make again 8850 ,limited edition. i don't know how,but it's not impossible!!!
nokia,i bet 1 million euro: if you bring back 8850 and 8810,they will sell like new,even now,in the era of great n95 and 8800 arte. too many people miss this models. they will sale again and again,no doubt better than in 1998-1999. just try with a limited number of this old beauties at a price around 250 euro
LEGENDARY phone... I brought the 8210 but upgraded to this shortly afterwards... have used the N80, Sirocco and Luna since but none come even close. The blue backlight, matte finish and keypad are unbeatable, all in a TINY package.
Shame technology eventually caught up with it, but its still the perfect combo of elegance and class.
Anyone looking for an 8850, you can get them here at www.foneco.uk.
I just got mine from here to today (along with an 8910i) and it brings back good memories of when I got my first one years back. Still a great phone, one of Nokias icons!
no dout one of the best phones i ever used..
its a classic nokia should consider makeing advance models of this design...
This is probably the best phone I've ever owned. Small, discreet, stylish, quick, easy to text with, especially with the tactile keys, the slider to hold it with and the Nokia T9 implementation for punctuation and extras. The cool blue light from the phone never bothered me in the car and never dazzled me at night and the display was always readable in daylight without having to light up the screen as we do now with modern colour screens.
This was phone was a masterpiece, genious. Everything was optimum.
Nokia are strong on marketing image and I always felt the 8850 said the right things about it's owner. As for the 8800, it just...hasn't got it. 8850 said 'smart'. 8800 talks more about itself, something like...'lead-lined gold-plated tea pot with 3 handles, buy me if you think you're rich enough'.
I own a Nokia 8850.. and its still going strong!
Ok it gets warm against your ear and after 10 text messages its full.
Ok and yeah its 8 years old... Someone still offered me 150 quid for this timeless classic!!!
I've searched for this 8850 2yrs to find it in good shape and finally I bought it... This is not a mobile phone, this is LEGEND. There are no mobile phones, there is just 8850
