A real away from the office communication centre which gives me complete independence, but.....
... Poor build quality, unreliable, prone to dust ingress, big, but that would not matter if it worked all the time!
This Nokia 9210 mobile phone can be a real boon as it can give you complete independence from the office, with calls and faxes diverted to the handset, and the ability to collect emails from your personal ISP account - very handy indeed.
But... the unit is unreliable and flaky. The slightest tap and it will start to deteriorate - loss of telephone display, fatigue in the screen cable leading to 'snow' on the main screen from time to time, non-functioning keys as dust makes its way behind keys and buttons is a real problem. There also appears to be a very, very low level of product knowledge from the high street retailers as to what it does and how it works - leading to cancelled expensive contracts and lots of wasted time.
This is the second communicator I have owned. The first was replaced by this one 18 months ago, which died from similar ailments! However, I am now addicted to what it does and will not spend good money on a replacement, so I will keep it. If anyone knows if I can get full function from the phone on Pay-As-You-Go please let me know!
