"A decent quality phone from back in the day - Nokia 3210"

You can't beat Nokia phones for durability and stability. I bought this phone off a friend when I was still at school. I remember giving her £30 for it as she wanted something a little more "cool". Back in the day this phone was cool. It flashes on it's side when you receive a message and/ or a call and comes complete with the classic that is Snake!!!

The phone has a great battery life. I only charged this twice a week when I had it and that was with average use. The phone's menu is easy to navigate and the phone is easy enough to learn, even without a manual (I never had one). It doesn't have a bulky ariel (unlike the 402) and has a sleek and elegant design. It doesn't look too masuline, so females can get away with using one of these (I am a woman and I never felt masculine when using this phone). It charges quickly and the clarity is fab. Sound quality (ringtones, alerts) is average. Ringtones are polyphonic and you can customise this phone with it's own logo.

Not a bad phone. A little dated but ideal as a spare phone. The old phones are the best sometimes! I would recommend this phone and you can buy it really cheap now. I've seen these on auction sites for under a tenner. Bargain!!!!

    Welcome to Ciao popmusicfan. I do remember this phone and I think I might've even owned it. Nevertheless I would have liked to hear a bit more about its features.

    Not really a helpful review because you can get far more advanced phones nowadays for a tenner! Sorry for the low rate :(

Product Information : Nokia 3210

Manufacturer's product description

New Nokia 3210 looks fun on the outside, but inside it means business. Nokia 3210 stands by for up to eleven days with the standard battery. And you can write messages fast with predictive text input. Even when you use Nokia 3210 just for fun - to keep in touch with your friends, when you are out in the evening - it's nice to know that there are some serious features inside. Features that make Nokia 3210 more dependable - like long operating times and dual-band operation. And features that make Nokia 3210 easier to use, like the all-purpose Navi Key and predictive text input, so you can write fast. Nokia 3210 is the first mobile phone with Xpress-on covers you can change on both sides - front and back. Snap off the front, snap off the back, and snap on a new cover to match your mood or to suit the situation. Rocket Silver for a party, or - who knows - Zircon Green for business. You can have any color your want. Graphic covers give you the possibility to get really wild Xpress-on covers for your phone, including a matching keypad. Predictive text input makes writing fast and easy. Instead of pressing each key one, two or three times, press it just once. The text input software decodes the keystrokes and scans the internal dictionary for matching words. With this software Nokia 3210 is much easier to use for writing short messages.
