This phone is very basic but perfectly useable. The battery life is excellent it can survive up to 3 weeks of heavy useage between charges. Also it is very simple to use with I like. Also it is seemingly indestructable. As I boasted to my friend about its indestructability he knocked it in the sink. Nothing happened at all. I accidently knocked it out of a 25 ft window onto concrete. Not a scratch. Although it could do with offering some more features and the screen is very low quality and... (read more)

Just bought one of these phones second hand - had one back in 1999. Got rid of my nokia N95 (too complicated) and decided to go back to basics! It does everything I want ...ie phone and text. Even today it is not too big or bulky
I seem to remember my previous model of this having a vibrate function ...unfortunately this one doesn't which is the one downside.
Otherwise pretty good. (read more)

Well the 3210 has had it's day. You really do not see a lot of people with it. BUT, it's GREAT for kids or a spare phone. I have this phone as a spare phone, and it is OK. Texts, calls and has an alarm.
Not great for business.

I am not interested in phones that do everything including showing videos, brushing the cat, cooking the tea and so on, all in one miniature package.
I bought this phone second hand through eBay for not much, paid a little more to unlock it, slipped in my Fresh network card and there you go. Some months I can spend as much as £5 on calls and texts but to compensate for that profligacy some months I don't need to use it at all. Fresh have a direct debit mandate and I get the confirming...

Brilliant, I have had lots of mobiles since 97 and this was one of the better ones, great games and a composer that was new back then composing your own ringtones had in January 2001 and still got it I don't use it anymore beacause I have upgraded but everybody likes the smooth keypad why did they stop making those keys? Generally brilliant but then it is a Nokia. (read more)

Very reliable phone, rugged, still looks as good as new even though I've had it 2+ years. I've had smaller/newer phones that cost me a small fortune and finished up going back to the 3210, as the keys are easier to read and use. I don't need any fancy little gimmicks, this phone works well for all I need it to do. (read more)

Nokia 3210 - It was my first nokia phone and I was very satisfied with its functions and ergonomics. Its functions were considered one of the easiest compared to many phones of other brands at that time. Signal was also good. Battery life is reasonable. Design is rather sleek with nice express-on covers. (read more)

I use the Nokia 3210 as a spare in case of emergencies now. When I got it, it was a well-made phone with a fair range of tones and the games weren't bad. I didn't have any problems with the signal and the battery was good too. Although it's looking a bit outdated now, it's a good phone to have as your first without great expense. I did drop it by accident in my garden when it was snowing once, and found it the next day still working and never suffered from any side effects which I was well... (read more)

This Nokia 3210 was my second nokia mobile phone, upgrading from a 5110, i saw great improvement. the phone was great at the time and had the latest technology such as picture messaging and t9.

I got the Nokia 3210 free from one of my family. I didn't mind that it was out of date by the time I got it (I had really old Alcatel at the time). It's reliable, it looks good, decent games, ringtone composer, picture messages, an excellent first phone. Looking at most of the new phones by Nokia, it seems they will never be able to top the success of the 3210. However, the reception on it did fail at the end of it's life. But that was my fault, I sat on it when I fell down whilst ice... (read more)

Nokia 3210 is, for me, the classic Nokia phone. Let's face it, what we REALLY use mobiles for are texts and calls, and this does the job better than any other in my opinion. Since this model, Nokias have only become more fiddly and full of useless features. Though I have to concede that the 3310 was fine, and a bit lighter.
It is a joy to use, with the classic Nokia interface and predictive text. Also, it has the best mobile game bar none: the original "Snake"!(which is in a different... (read more)

This Nokia 3210 mobile phone has served me very well over the past 3 years, and worked in thailand on my recent trip.
I often go down the coast, I always manage to get enough reception to make a call, and most others cant. For its time, the features are great, though old, the phone does just a good a job than any other phone. Includes classic games, snake, memory and others, and is now extremly cheap to but, around $40 in australia. It never cuts out calls, and the LCD screen has lasted... (read more)

When i got this phone (about just over 2 years ago) it was just before the 3310 came out and was one of the best phones on the market that a cheap student like me could afford. However, suddenly the 3310 came out and it was instantly dated, after i'd only had it about a month. Since then , many many more phones have come out, making it date even more, but being on pay-as-you-go, there were no upgrades available and so i've stuck with it ever since. As i have found with nokias, the screen has... (read more)

The Nokia 3210 was a breakthrough for Nokia and now a trademark in my opinion because since the 3210 Nokia phones in one way or another they have looked like the 3210, just getting smaller or wider thats all. The internal antenna was big for Nokia because there was no antenna sticking in your leg all the time while you was on the move. phones will always get better because of the 3210 and most phones in the future will be based on that one phone.

I have finally got to get a new phone - but I don't really want to! My 3210 has served me well. It has been reliable, sturdy (despite the number of times I have dropped it over the years) and, at the time I got it, was very futuristic, and still does not look out of place today. Put it this way, I'm not ashamed to answer it in public! The games are basic, but good, the T9 dictionary is still being used in new phones today, and although the graphics are basic, they serve the purpose well. ... (read more)

Even though this phone is quite old it is still very good and works very well. If you like ringtones you can get loads with the phone. A bad point is the weight, the phone is very heavy but pretty small. It hasn't got an ariel sticking out, which makes everything a lot easier. It can do most things you want, send text messages, make calls, play games, I would advise people on a medium budget to get this phone. (read more)

Got my Nokia 3210 mobile phone from my brother a year ago.

Wouldn't want to switch to another nokia model but the features are really not enough for me.

I have had a Nokia 3210 mobile phone for over two years now and it has served me very well. When I acquired it, it had a very modern, if not futuristic, design, without an external antenna and it offered quite a lot of features. Today it may be considered quite limited compared to WAP & GPRS features of other phones, but it still has a very special design which stands out from other phones. I like it very much and still wouldn't swap it for another phone.

The nokia 3210 phone is a solid performer, with a full-bodied clear sound. It is not tinny like some other phones and is pretty robust. Not had any problems whatsoever.
If you want a mobile phone because you want to phone and text people, not get involved in overly complex features that are just gizmos and mostly useless, then this is a good choice. The only down side is the weight - it is a bit heavy at 155g (but I think you can reduce the weight by using a lithium-ion battery). Size is OK... (read more)

I'm going to make this short because not many people will agree with me. Why? Because everybody has one and no-one likes to be insulted.
The 3210 is a great starter handset for the kiddies. The logos, ringtones and games will keep their playground buddies happy.
Unfortunately, i have used many other phones (have you??) so i can compare it quite well.
The 3210 is ugly, heavy, bulky and everyone has one.
Compare it with a Panasonic gd93 and there you see quality and style.

Excellent Phone, some people say its heavy but not compared to some other phones. It has heaps of features but the only one it dosn't have is Calendar.
