Recently bought a Nokia 5510 on ebay as I wanted one when they were first released but couldn't afford one at the time.
Nowhere near as big as I remember them. Radio and music player are really good, and the rest of the menus are laid out as every other Nokia has been. Would be considered a brick compared to the phones available now, but I really like it. (read more)

I purchased the Nokia 5510 quite a while back, in red. I was really excited when it arrived, but that's when I realised I made one of the biggest mistakes in my phone career. I couldn't believe the poor size of the phone. I could barely fit it in my pocket, and when I could I couldn't get it out!
This phone is pretty much the 3310 but with sideways keypad. If you use your phone a lot, and carry it arond with you - I suggest you do NOT buy this. This phone should be marketed for first time... (read more)

OKay, my Nokia 5510 was second hand, and i bought it in the summer (03). It looks great - always draws attention because not many poeple have got it - and the mP3 player is good (if a little limited in memory by todays standards). The QWERTY keyboard allows you to txt quicker, but only when you've got used to it (which takes time). One of the only REAL problems is that the earpiece seems to be in an awkward place for some people - but only some. Oh and the back cover is a bit flimsy...

I got my nokia 5510 a few days ago. I got it for a price of 899 DKR (86,34 pounds).
For that price it is a great phone. I bought it for the Mp3 player. And was happy to find out it worked great!
I can use my own headset so i dont have to use Nokias little junky headset. But you need to use the adapter that comes with the phone .. but that is a good thing so you wont break the socket on the phone (having a normal headphone plug in the phone, in your pocket, would not be good for the...

I bought this phone and was one of the first people I knew with it, the salesman told me it would really kick off over here. lol 1 and a half years later im still waiting. I ordered the phone from a catalogue without thinking about the dimensions lol but i wanted something unique & thats what i got, it may be a little different but then again that reflects my personality, the mp3 system is great,the texting is cool, tjhe games are hard to play but overall it ROX!!!!!!!!

Almost everything about this phone is better than it seemed apart from playing games. The controls are extremely hard but once you work it out it can get a bit easier. I have never been able to text faster unless I go to 02's website! The space key and the shift key make it really easy but still not cluttered. This is my 3rd phone (Nokia 7110, Siemens SL45i, Nokia 5510) and it's the best by a margine. Everything works flawlessly on it and is overall an excellent phone. (read more)

This Nokia 5510 is my 3rd phone i have purchased (Nokia 3210, 3310 and 5510) and this one has to be the worst one out of them all!! The QWERTY keyboard makes texting HARDER instead of easier. There is also no composer on this mobile phone, unless it is a flaw with Nokia, i'd say they'd rather you wasted your money on the SLOW WAP service and and download them, or you get ur m8 to compose one for you, and send it 2 you. I payed £230 and i am quite disappointed in this phone. I thought that... (read more)

When the Nokia 5510 was first released in New Zealand, the going price was $900 (that's about 1800 euros). When I went into a shop recently, I noticed that they are now down to $260 (520 euros). When I questioned why the price has dropped so dramatically, the sales assistant told me that they had bought all of Nokia New Zealand's stock at a huge discount. It makes sense; the trendy young people at whom the 5510 is aimed would never be able to afford to spend $900. However, at a more... (read more)

When i got this phone I though it was totally fantastic. It is basically a 3330 with the ability to play mp3s. It has a cool design that I totally love, but I'm sure Nokia could have made it a little smaller. You get bored of the games real quick, as they are the same ones Nokia has been using since the 3310. By all means buy it, but later you may find it impracticle. Once again, the music player RULz!!! (read more)

The phone is great in many respects. The music quality is outstanding and it comes with really good software to download music and stuff. The FM radio is also cool. Sending SMS messages is so easy and quick however you do have a tendency to go onto the second or even third txt message! The buttons are very clanky..especially the up and down ones. I hate the little flap that covers the USB and audio out bits. Wish it had more fascias and more readily available accesories! (read more)

The Nokia 5510 mobile phone needs more ingenuity in it's design. It's as big as a 5110 and it lacks functionality- it functions like a 3310 with a mp3 player. And the software doesn't work with windows XP. Very dodgy!!! Very cheap though. (read more)

5510 is a great mobile phone as it keeps me entertained when commuting. However this is its only good point. NAM is the WORST software I have ever used. Song transfer is SLOW and in most cases crashes half way through. In short once you have spent a lifetime getting songs on the thing your stuck with that music as it takes another lifetime to change any music, extremely stressful, what were their programmers thinking?

I bought this Nokia 5510 mobile phone a month ago against my friends recommendations. They saw it as a bulky phone and often referred to is as a brick, but it's not as big as you might think.
The way i looked at it was, I always carry my cd player around with me and a CD only has limited choice on it, this phone allowed me play any song i wanted anywhere i wanted and saved me carrying a cd player, as well as saving money on batteries!
Basically though it is the same as a 3330.

After using the Nokia 5510, I was asking myself how I would be able to use another mobile phone again after being spoilt by the complete QWERTY keyboard and built-i MP3 Player and FM Radio. If you are the type who listens to music while waiting for the train, this mobile phone is for you. If you are a POWER TEXTER who has average-sized fingers, then this phone is for you. But beware, you can end up running a pretty huge phone bill because writing text messages has never been easier.

This Nokia 5510 mobile phone has served me well for a number of weeks. Only a few minor problems encountered, as outlined above. I'd recommend this to anyone who is a lover of music, and let's face it, that's nearly everybody.I won a Creative jukebox for my MP3 pleasure, but the 5510 has taken over as my primary source of music, because of its smaller size and radio function. It's also an impressive phone in terms of battery life, reception and features. Highly recommended. (read more)

DO NOT BUY!! I had my Nokia 5510 mobile phone for two months and sold it. Its keypad was very awkward to use and keys were too small to type anything that made sense, it weighed a ton, wouldn't fit in pocket, the phone casing creaked and groaned when used, the back cover fitted poorly, the front cover is fixed and cannot be replaced , battery life is ridiculous - it uses a smaller battery than 3310 which is bad enough but it has so many extra features and the battery does not support it very...

Good phone, very easy to use, easy to use software. Sound quality is amazing and it has a equalizer too. With many of the phones you will be bored after playing 1 hour of Snake 2 or bantumi. With this one ... NO, because u can do a lot of things: listen to fm radio or to your favourite mp3's while playing snake 2, or check your phone book for some friend's phone number. Cool design, eye cathing and great colors chosen by nokia: blue and red. I like this one ... when you got it in your hands... (read more)

I have had the Nokia 5510 mobile phone for a few weeks now - as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have one. First of all it's great for listening to music. You can download over two hours of music and no matter what you do it doesn't skip like a personal CD player would. The next best thing is sending text's is so much faster - the keys are laid out like a keyboard which makes sending texts or emails a lot faster.
The best thing I ever done was get this phone. You only have to have it for... (read more)

I use Nokia all the time because of it's user friendly software. I have used Nokia 2110, 5110, 3210, then this 5510. The shape is indeed too big for a mobile phone, I have difficulties bringing it everywhere, and it's not pocketsize. But I love the mp3 player, very fast downloading files, and clear sound. Also the AAC format is smaller than MP3, but has quality as good as MP3. The first mobile that can record from FM radio or other devices directly. Wish it's shrinkable ! (read more)

I brought the nokia 5510 phone on a Virgin pay as you go contract and took it back within the week. I was disappointed at the feel of the item, it felt cheap and not very solid. The software that came with the phone caused no end of problems on my computer. The instructions did not meet with the software either. The screen was also disappointing .. far too small.

This phone has a revolutionary appearance. I had this phone for one month and people just like come along and ask "whats it?". Yes it looks very weird and it just attracts people very much. Very good if you need more chat topics with friends.

The only improvement I would like to see is to put AM frequency in the radio (read more)

The Nokia 5510 is the best innovation done by Nokia this year. The mp3 player works very good and the audio quality is very good. I can hear MP3 songs all day long and there remains still enough capacity in the battery for phone calls. The FM radio has very good sensitivity but lacks of RDS. SMS typing with the keyboard is fast and convenient.
I like this phone very much. (read more)
