nokia 8310 that sums it all up
bought 2 nokia 8310s in january one for me one for my girlfriend, her phone worked ok except it kept saying "allow sim action" press a key says "how are you" sounds funny but very annoying after a while. my phone drops signal cant make call with less than 2 bar signal or gaurenteed to be cut off! put phone in pocket pull it out few hours later to find it saying "sim card failed" turn it off and back on works fine,(not much use as a mobile phone when it wont ring as sim card failed.) sent it of to be repaired had it back 12 hours now got 4 faults first 2 as before but now it turns it self of all the time (record 13 times in 5 minutes in vodafone store) and gives you unanswered calls without ringing, goes back for repair comes back had phone 1 hour works great exept when repaired did not reasemble phone correctly and now facia does not fit right, refuses to send it back gets a recondiond handset (cannot tell difference between this and new one) this works great for about 1 day and then one of the keys starts sticking turns out to be -volume key 2 days later phone 100% unusable as key stuck all the time all can do is take the battery out. WILL NEVER BUY NOKIA AGAIN when they make bad phones they cant even mend them right so i spoke to vodafone who did us early upgrade (6 months early) got 2 panasonic gd87s for £300 exelent phone only downside is games would highly recomend
