Written on: 22/12/2002 by Rit. (1 review written)

Nice features on this Nokia 8310 mobile phone. It would be perfect if not for Nokia's inability to produce WORKING software for a mobile phone. How hard can it be ???? The 6210 I had before this had problems, but the 8310 just takes those problems to a new level.

This time the problems affect your ability to make, and take phone calls. I've had the phone for a few months now, and have decided I'll sell it, will probably try to get an Ericsson T300 in place of it. I'll miss the Radio, that's 1… Read Full Review

HI!
Have you seen the size of the Nokia 8310 yet?
For the size of the phone it is really, really packed full of features a'm so suprised! GPRS, WAP, changeable covers, Radio, E-mail, 150 messeges including creating your own folders, infa-red port, call register, settings, profiles, receive ringtones, games, get game packs, calculater, 2 do list, calender, extras!!
All this in one of the smallest phones in the world so far... i mean look at the Nokia 6310 the size how big it is? It still has about the same amount of features as the Nokia 8310 and the Nokia 6310 hasn't got a Radio!!!
SO COME ON GIVE THE NOKIA 8310 BREAK!!!
my 8310 has also taken sum bashing and is still working by the way!!!!!!
WHAT A PHONE!
BEST NON_COLOUR SCREEN PHONE OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I agree with this review. I have had my 8310 for about a year now, and I'm sick of it. What's the point of loads of features if the ruddy thing won't work!! I keep getting an "Allow SIM action?" message, and sometimes while I am using it, it turns itself off! Seriously considering getting rid.

Written on: 16/02/2003

I've had the phone for a year now and I think the phone is GREAT! I live in an area where signal levels are normally low and I've no problems with reception. I love the white backlit display. It's very clear to read. Don't know how people can stand those blue screen phones. The 8310 can store about 170 sms's internally, has sms templates, picture messages, the built-in FM radio is very very clear, its phonebook allows you to store name, address, phone/fax/email details for each entry, and its reception is great (did I mention that already) :) plus heaps of other features that I can go on and on about.

Written on: 22/12/2002 by ange. (1 review written)

I love my phone! As for the problems that others are having with reception on their Nokia 8310's, perhaps this is a problem with your service provider? I have had no problems with reception, in fact the reception has been fantastic. There is a warning in the manual to avoid touching the area where the internal antenna is located perhaps this advice isn't being followed?
No problems so far, and I'm enjoying all the features this little phone has. Don't quite know how to use all the features… Read Full Review

You should check sl45i for better and lot bigger memory capacity.. it has 32MB memory, allowing you to store any kind of files... and I still don't understand your saying 8310's memory capability.. if you mean the address book, the sl45 has 500names with multiple entries each.. =)))

Yes I agree it is not worth £300. At the moment if you insist on buying the 8310 go out and buy the 7210. It has the same features plus more. Like a colour screen and loudspeaker! Also has java technology! Buy the 7210 its the same price !!!

Written on: 19/12/2002 by Wildfire. (1 review written)

Ok where to start? I initally got this phone because of the long lead time on the T68i on Vodaphone, free I might add. Ou of the box it is the same as any Nokia, very easy to use, fast and stylish. It was a definite improvement over the T28 I used to have and probably a little better that my Alcatel Onetouch 511. Despite the X press on covers it felt much better than the Alcatel. I was incredibly impressed by the text message capacity, and the T9 dictionary, as well as the games. Also it has a… Read Full Review

BEFORE BUYING A PHONE REMEMBER THAT IT'S A BUSINESS TOOL AND WAS NOT DESIGNED TO BE A TOY!!! I'M SICK OF READING REVIEWS WHERE PEOPLE MOAN ABOUT A LACK OF SCREANSAVER OR THE INABILITY TO GET RING TONES! OPEN YOUR EYES AND LOOK FOR THE IMPORTANT THINGS SUCH AS SIZE, WEIGHT, RELIABILITY, RECEPTION AND BASIC FEATURES SUCH AS SMS, ALARM, VIBRATE ALERT ETC. FOR WHICH THIS PHONE IS PERFECT!

I have one and one that is more full of fun than work.
<br>Personally, I like a phone that can be a communicator and be an accessory that is an enjoyable experience. I like to look at something that pleases the eye while being useful.
<br>If ringtones and screensavers are not your thing, buy a phone that doesn't have them. Don't knock those that like a bit of variety and colour.
<br>This phone suits me right down to the ground, being functional and fun.

With all due respect, phones now ARE becoming toys as well as a tool. If people want to complain about features, let them. Everyone uses a phone for different purposes. Some for business, some for just texting.
Many more people are requiring phones that will do a lot more than just make calls.

Written on: 10/12/2002 by AjC. (1 review written)

I have been using this phone for about 3 months now, and have to say I have very mixed feelings about it. On one hand, it seems to be just about the perfect size, easily fitting in your pocket. It also has a number of useful features, such as the calendar, and task reminders. On the other hand, the phone seems to suffer from some software faults. These include an intermittent problem with text messaging, whereby it switches itself off when you're about to send the message you have written… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/12/2002 by Chris. (1 review written)

The 8310 in my opinion does look very good and does have a fair few worthwhile features packed inside but the problem is, the platform they have been built on is unstable. When I say this I mean the software and hardware of the phone. First of all the phone itself is on the fragile side, I droped mine from my bed by accident and the volume button broke inside, plus the case broke too. But the real problem lies in the software. On many many occasions my phone has locked up whilst typing a… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/11/2002 by Dinio. (1 review written)

The TO DO LIST function doesn't seem to allow you set an alarm against an entry, even if you file it into the Calendar. When purchasing a new clip on cover, the new cover does not come with a new keypad that compliments that cover, ie, I have the red cover with red keys 1,4,7,*,3,6,9,#, and if I were to put say the Blue cover on it, I still have the red keys. The local dealer did not have any additional rubber keypads either, but the appropriate keypads should come with the new cover. Other… Read Full Review

I don't know what some people are on about when they say this phone breaks all the time, this phone is a gem. I've had mine for nearly a year and I never turn it off - only have to charge it once a week and never had any problems with it. I got it back in January when the phone was brand new, my phone doesn't have Snowboarding on it :( But it is excellent.

To get delivery reports when using o2 you must type in *0# at the start of each message. Its a bit of a pain but thats the only way.
