“Before anyone slanders me for slagging of this phone,...”

Written on: 07/11/2002 by teemesiter99. (1 review written)

Before anyone slanders me for slagging of this phone, ask yourself what you are upgradign from when you go this phone? Chances are it is a bulky old Nokia or an 8210. If that's the case then you will think this is awesome. If however, like me, you have used many equally priced phones and not just this it will put it into perspective. This is cheap, flimsy and boring. Everyone has one now. The interface is no different to the usual poor system, even though it is simple and easy to navigate. This… Read Full Review

Or better still, buy a Panasonic GD88. It has a colour screen and inbuilt camera.

I'm sick of people saying "this phone will break or it looks horrible". The phone WON'T break if you don't drop it, and... What's the purpose of putting bad comments about the looks of a phone in a review. People who read this obviously know what it looks like, and what they really want to know is, how it works as a phone.

The 8310 is by far the best Nokia released. The radio is brilliant, and the phone its self looks really cool. All you people who are moaning about screensavers, I mean come on, don't you think it makes up for not having them with all the other features it has!… Read Full Review

Anyway, it HAS screensavers (standby pictures actually) as a screen saver is what comes on to replace the standby screen after idle for a given amount of time (like on a PC). In fact, very few phones have actual screensavers but my SonyEricsson T68i have a built in one & you can select others from the pictures saved in the phone.

Written on: 05/11/2002 by Lisa. (1 review written)

After always having Nokia phones, I feel let down by this one. It is constantly turning itself off while texting or accessing the phone book, the sim card is always moving as the little plastic thing holding it in is rubbish. Also the phone itself sounds so cheap and plastic when it vibrates. I know alot of people with this phone and not many of them have been happy with it, I'm very dissappointed. Wouldn't advise people to pay the money they are asking for these… Read Full Review

Between my family we have had four faulty 8310's and one faulty 5210. All crash even once they had been updated with new software!! Even a singlepoint employee told me they wouldn't touch a new Nokia with a bargepole. I had to buy a new samsung as Nokia would only replace my 8310 with another 8310. Hmmm No thanks!! Nokia are knowingly ripping people off it makes me sick!… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/10/2002 by Tom. (1 review written)

Well, the first time i saw the Nokia 8310 in the shops i straight away got it. Its looks are so sexy that it stands right out from the other phones. When you first open the cool looking silver box you will notice the little phone staring right back at you, and that is when you want to grab it straight out of its box and use it straight away. I enjoyed walking in the shopping center and showing of the phone, it feels so good when you know you have something better then someone else.
I would say… Read Full Review

I bought my Nokia 8310 mobile phone five months ago. During a call suddenly my screen froze and the phone switched off. I tried charging the phone but it never switched on. I gave it in for repairs but still it cannot be switched on. It may look good but the bugs are a problem. I think i will go for a 6510… Read Full Review

You buy the phone because it is the smartest looking phone in the store. You can buy all the accessories and the glammour casings!! but soon as you get the thing home you realise several noticable points:- 1.You cannot send/compose ringtones 2.The games were better on your old nokia phone(these ones are bobbins) 3.You want a screensaver but the phone doesn't support this feature, oh and the list grows on and on. You'd think that paying more money on this state of the art tiny Nokia 8310… Read Full Review

I completely and utterly agree with this person. I think that nokia should allow their customers to claim their money back. Afterall, they have been mislead by Nokia. Maybe, we should pronounce Nokia with a 'F' instead of an N. This seems to be more to the truth.

Written on: 18/10/2002 by phantom. (1 review written)

The Nokia 8310 is a stylish looking phone but is let down by a few things. It does not have a composer and cannot access the internet using Windows XP (Nokia will never develop a modem driver for this phone). Previously, i had a 8850 and could store logo/tones as txts in my phone and send them on to others. Unfortunately, this phone cannot do that. Also, when you receive a text message that is supposed to flash, the 8310 does not support it… Read Full Review

Actually, my Nokia 8310 works fine with Windows XP -- no need for a driver (XP sets it up as a modem for you).
And if you want to use it for GPRS with your computer, your network should give you the software for this (Vodafone does -- it's called Vodafone Connect Me and is free on CD in Vodafone stores or downloadable online). I'm very impressed with this.

The Nokia 8310 mobile phone is really stylish, and is really light and smal, great menus... FM radio is brill...just the thing you need when you're waiting ages for your date to turn up (after all, playing snake all the time did get a bit boring!) lol. The thing that really bothers me, is the fact that I can't compose ringtones anymore, esp. as I have two books on the codes for composing your own ringtones for various songs!! The only other thing is that you also cant use picture messages as… Read Full Review

If you want to compose ringtones you can download "Nokia PC Suite 4.3" for free off the Nokia website and you can also make your own graphics.

I have had a Nokia 8310 mobile phone for six months and I am not satisfied with this phone. I have gone to the service center several times for firmware upgrades but I still come face to face with bugs. Sometimes the screen freezes, other times the phone reboots automatically or hangs when I try to send a message. The reception is below average and often I have no signal while other mobiles have. Finally, I don't like the build quality as the phone rattles although I haven't dropped it. I am a… Read Full Review

Overall the Nokia 8310 is a good mobile phone. It could have been made better by bluetooth and triband but would mean it was less accessible to people without that kind of budget. Just hoping it won't go the same way as the 8210 as far as the screen is concerned… Read Full Review
