Easy to use
Does what I need it to
Brick-like compared to trendy newer phones (that's about it!)
I was bought a Nokia 5110 at Christmas 1998, after struggling with a naff Motorola and am still using it five and a half years on! Still using the original battery, this phone has never needed any repairs despite it being frequently dropped, thrown and chewed by my toddler son! The charger decided to pack in a couple of months ago and I have had difficulty trying to find a compatible replacement (currently have to share one).
I feel that it is time to upgrade to a 3510i (I would prefer to stick with Nokia) but am worried this will not be as reliable as my beloved 5110! Might just stick with it until it eventually gives up the ghost. I like the 5110 for its simplicity, although it has features that I have never needed to use.
I am very impressed with this phone. It may not be a fancy fashion-victim's gadget that does just about everything, but it has certainly done its job!
