Picture editor is useful (lot cheaper than downloads!) ;o) - it's unbreakable! - looks good - if outer shell is removed keypad lights will easily light a large room!! (great in powercuts!) Infra red also came in useful for net surfin via laptop.
when sending long 3 page txts, key reaction is VERY slow - often crashes at this point (v. annoyin) >:-( Thermometer is a gimmick (it is not ever -18o even in my house!) Outer shells are expensive! There is no phone storage for additional txts. My sim only holds 10 :-(
I've had this Nokia 5210 phone for a year now and although i did wear out one of the buttons at first (far too much space impact!) which needed a replacement i've had no problems with it. I found the vibrate very strong which is useful in very loud environments, particulally as the ringing volume is not very loud. (although the strong vibrate can be somewhat embarrasing in quiet surroundings!) I have dropped it a vertical distance of over 20ft onto a hard wooden floor and it survived! this phone is great and if it wernt for the networks giving new phones away free i wouldn't be changing!
