Nokia 3310 Review
Review: March 2003. Updated October 2004.
The Nokia 3310 has been one of the most popular mobiles of all time,
so it seems mean to award it just one star. However, the truth is that
the 3310 cannot compare with modern phones: it's big and heavy, has
hardly any features, mediocre battery life, and is not as reliable as
many people would like to believe. The newer Nokia
3100 is a much better choice.
Features of the Nokia 3310 include:
- Predictive text messaging
- 35 ringtones plus ringtone composer plus customisable ringtones
- Voice activated dialling
- Data capability
- Downloadable games
- Animated screen savers
- Changeable front and back covers
- Size: 113 x 48 x 22 mm
- Weight: 133g
- Battery standby: 55 - 260 hours
- Battery talktime: 2.5 - 4.5 hours
- Vibration alert
- Dual band

I have this phone now almost for 10 years. It still works great. I mean
modern phones are weak and easly broke. I drop it from 7th floor STILL
WORKS! I drop it while calling in the car driving at 120k/m STILL WORKS!
Then accidentaly drive over it when turning back to get it STILL WORKS!
I drop it in toilet STILL WORKS! I smash against someones head who tried
to steal it STILL WORKS. This phone you can do anything with it and
it will STILL WORK! Unlike moderen phones where they are weaklings.
They need a lesson from my Nokia 3310!

Great little phone, had mine a few months now - no complaints whatsoever.
Considering it's size and cost, it's very comparable to a lot of the
similar (but a lot more expensive) phones in its class. This phone also
has heaps of style, so you can customise it to look just about however
you want - business, sophisticated, fun.. etc. Definately one to consider
if upgrading - and a lot more reliable that those flip phones!!

theres nothing really that exciting about this phone, ive had it for
about 3 years because i havent had the chance to afford a better one.
it takes ages to open messages, it thinks for a long while, and its
getting worse too. the phone weighs a heap, and its pretty bulky for
today, its annoying to carry around. if i was an electronic dummy getting
a first mobile, i'd get this one, because it is so basic and "user friendly".
but otherwise, i wouldnt recommend getting this phone.
Reviewed by mobilboy from uk on 18th Jul 2004
id say this phone was very ahead of its time when it first came out.
it was slightly bulkier than the 8210, but alot cheaper and was in fact
decent value. had some really cool features, including the profiles
and the screensaver pictures, which were things that other affordable
nokias lacked at the time. i havent used this phone for 3 years and
have had about 5 handsets since then. i can honestly say that this was
the phone i really did appreciate at the time of owning it.

I had a Nokia 3310 for 2 years and replaced it with a samsung A800 last
christmas. The Nokia 3310 is a classic phone. Its good features are
: long lasting battery, extremely easy to use, changeable phone covers.
It can`t be a bad phone if people still use them surely? It never let
me down once. I would say this a good phone for anyone who doesnt use
there phone much or wants a simple phone. If they still them, do they??
Its a good phone but unfortunatly i think its days will be over this
time next year - but what a classic phone!!

Here's the thing. This phone is a great phone, basiclly just a workhorse
you know? Weighs an absolute tonne and has vitually no modern features.
I have had mine for 4 years and I'm upgrading. Anyone considering buying
this phone should opt for something a little more modern because this
thing is a dinosaur. If however you do want to go as cheap as possible
beware. The charger blows after a couple of years and doesnt work, and
screen WILL crack and nokia WONT replace it and it WILL delete names
and stuff unexpectably. A very Nice phone, which was extreamly practable
in 2001 but in todays world it should only really be bought as an antique.

I had this phone for 3 years and still goin strong. After countless
times of dropping it off my doubledecker bed, contact with water, it
still works perfectly! There were occasional glitches like "hanging",
but it happens very rarely. Very easy to use compared to other phones
during its launch. Heck, my gramma can use it perfectly! In conclusion,
a very loyal phone...if you bought it from an authorised Nokia dealer!

No matter what others say, this is one of the best phones available
for now. Nokia has the best software for phones and that's why it's
very reliable, also the menus are great. This phone gives you the feeling
of reliability and it is also functional, and it is kinda cheap. I had
lots of phones and this is one of the best. Changeable covers, good
ringtones so if you want to get a good phone don't hesitate. For a better
feeling try changing the plastic buttons with rubber ones (those that
look like the 3410's)... mail me!

Me and my husband have these phones and they were fine till we'd had

the battery has been fully charged. Even bought new batteries to see
if it was that, but they are still as bad and not worth the time and
money. Best place for them is the bin. Got a siemens A55 given and it
seems to be good and at least hasn't cut out.

Okay... I know EVERYONE'S got this phone and it's one of the most popular
choices. But the covers are changeable so you can change the style of
your phone as many times as you want. The ringtones are quite good and
there's loads to choose from and you can also compose your own. Also
there are some reasonably good games incase your bored...really bored!
(Actually I'm addicted to snake but hey!) And you can have pictures
as your screensaver. So what I'm trying to say is that it's a popular
choice because it's one of the most reliable phones i've ever owned
(and god have i owned a lot of phones) and when dropped it still works,
ive dropped mine about 5 times in the last few days and the case came
off but no damage! All in all, this is a good phone! Buy it if you want
something simple and reliable.

games are great, you can play Snake 2, Space impact, Bantumi and pairs
2. You can compose your own ringtones and go on a website called www.mrtones.com
to get free ringtones. you get loads of cool ringtones such as, merry
xmas and loads of cool ones. The screensavers aren't very good but if

I've had my 3310 for about 2 years now. I like the changeable faceplates
- i have a spiderman one, although they don't fit on tight enough -
it needs a rubber seal as it gets dusty inside quickly. I have dropped
it quite a few times and it works fine although about once a week the
screen goes a little fadded, but all i do is hit it and it goes back
to normal. Vodafone sent me a handsfree head set for my 3310, but, even
though the phone hasn't been for a swim its been 'water damaged' and
the hands free wont work. There is a slight software bug in the menu
numbering system, it misses 13 and goes on to 14 for the sim2 service,
and there is no numbering for the sim2 services. A nice phone that fits
in your levi's pocket.

I've had this phone for over 2 years now and have had no problems whatsoever
with it. It's a great, basic phone and if you dont want all those fancy
features then go for this one. My only complaint is that it only holds
10 texts, which if you send/receive a lot each day your constantly having
to delete messages, tho this is only a minor complaint. 5 stars from
me because, even tho its very basic, it does what it does well. The
only reason I'm going to upgrade soon is simply because I want a camera
phone. But if your wanting a good basic phone, perhaps a first phone,
then go for the 3310.

I have had my nokia 3310 for one year and i hadn't experienced any trouble
with it, just recently i had it sent in for repairs, for a faulty screen,
i received it back and two days later i sent it in for repais again
because it was giving reception problems. This is a great phone to have,
but it's alot more trouble than what it is worth.

simple but great. for people who want a phone for ringing people and
sending a text, easy to use and reliable. had this phone for a few years
now and not once has it caused me any problems. not reccomended though
for people who want lots of flashy features.

This phone is 100% quality. Lets face it wot do u realy need a fone
for, texting and making and recieving calls, not all these useless feutures
u see on the new phones. The 3310 is the best for makin calls and texts,
its so simple to use 1 button does everything even my nan could use
it. IT doesnt look that bad either and if you really want ther are thousands
of covers you can get for it. Its not to big, its not to small and the
price is fantastic. There is no need to be ripped off with prices up
to £300 for useless feutures such as bluetooth, cmaeras...etc.

with my last 3310, i'm going to by buying another 3310 to replace my
old one. if we do find it, my lil sis'll have it, so it's not going

it has all the things that are needed for a phone.if u want to get a
phone and u don't want one of the new high tech fancy ones, then i think
that u should definetly get a 3310!

i've had this phone two years now and let's just say it's worn out its
welcome. at first it was really good and worked really well, admittedly
it's very durable, i have smashed the screen once when i dropped it
off a podium in a nightclub, but that is unusal! i've chucked it about
and it doesn't break..BUT after two years it's just looking really old
bulky and boring. my main reason for changing phones however is that
the star button has stopped working properly, which is pretty damn annoying
if u wanna lock your phone or use predictive text! it's startiong to
happen to the other buttons too i don't know why and i don't care coz
i'm trading in the ugly block of nokia for a cute little samsung, yay!

This phone is really great. Have been using it for two years..will change
to 6800 or 5100. I have several complaints about text messaging..for
you who use text message...this can be unreliable at times because of
weak signal at times and can only support up to 460 characters or so.
Also, unreliable to deliver more than 300 characters depend on the signal.
Some people didnt get my long msgs...mostly short ones. And also the
short battry life too. This is still pretty good and cheap.

this phone is one of the best phones that they are in terms of value
for money. It is affordable and is the cheapest phone on the market.
It has games and all the features you will need/ever use. Pity it doesn't
have wap but 90% of people who have this phone don't even need it so
i think that this phone is built to perfection and I am glad about the
changes they made to the 3410 which is the upgrade but yet the price
goes up. If you have a low budget, get this phone!

I've had this phone for two years now. I'll soon be upgrading, probably
to the 6610. Anyway, overall the phone has been great. Its definitely
user friendly, as most Nokia's are. The phone has all the functions
most people would need, I'd still recommend this phone today for people
new to phones eg grandparents/kids etc. The phone is quite durable;
I've dropped mine numerous times and for the most part it keeps on functioning
as normal. I did happen to break the screen once when I dropped it on
the road, but I think that was just bad luck. Although the screen was
cracked, the phone continued to operate! As others have found, batterly
life can deplete quite quickly, but replacement batteries are relatively
cheap. If your phone came with a Nickel Metal Hydride battery, replace
it with a Lithium Ion battery. Definitely improved performance from
Li-Ion batteries. The phone is great. Its not the most stylish out there,
and if you want the latest and greatest model, this isn't your thing.
BUT, if you want a good phone that is reliable and damn easy to use,
you can't go past the Nokia 3310.

i have had this phone for 8 months now and i much prefer it to my old
one those big bulky motorolas. i like its design could do with some
more imaginative call signs but it does everything i need but i dont
need one of these new phones that does everything because i wouldnt
use all the features so i will stick with a simple basic nokia that
is easy to use and does what i need to do on it.

I think the 3310 is good value if you only want to use a phone for calling
and texting or if it's your first mobilephone and you're under 12.The
only fault is that very rarely it unlocks or phones people when it 's
meant to be locked but thats if the buttons are being pressed.

I have had my phone now just over two years and the only critism I would
have is the battery life. I have now replaced it with a longer life
battery and it only needs charging once or twice a week instead of every
other day. Other than that it does everything I could want from a phone
and I can even send ring tones to other nokia phones which you can't
do from the 3330 as there is no composer on it. I think that this is
also the case on some of the newer Nokia phones. Overall, I am really
happy and have no intention of changing it in the near future.

The Nokia range on a whole are outstanding phones. I have progressed
through the ranks 5210 3210 and now the 3310. I digressed and went with
a Samsung T100, all looks and no substance. The Nokia is sturdy, easy
to use and totally reliable, plus you can dolly it up to your own likes.
