Written on: 13/09/2004 by wilber (7 reviews written)

Nokia 6510 - It wa the second Nokia phone I owned. I chose the brown one as I felt the black one was awful. The phone has rather useful and good functions except that it gets a little unstable when there are many items stored in the calendar and archive and folders. The handshaking welcome animation goes off after I start saving quite a lot of things in the above-mentioned functions. The radio function is very useful, but the reception of the radio functions seems to be quite lousy at places… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/04/2004 by quadred (1 review written)

This Nokia 6510 mobile phone handset has some lovely features. The unusual green tint high def screen is very cool and easy to read. The Nokia menu system is to its usual high standard and it is very light and small.

However, the problems are niggling. Reception is generally poor and the handset often has to be turned on and off for it to reacquire a signal. It also hangs every so often.

Overall, an ok phone. but it has been surpassed both in terms of size and features by now… Read Full Review

I find the battery life on this phone to be great! Over 3 hrs talktime in one go!! Also - it's still ONE of the smallest Nokias made - but yes it has had its share of software issues - though latest 4.21 Nokia firmware isn't too bad.

I bought the Nokia 6510 phone recently from the leading cellular network in my country at a very good price (40% lesser when it was first introduced in the market) with a seal still intact and with an aroma of fresh from the factory. In fact there are many Nokia non-color handsets to choose from at a lower price but I picked this one from the rest 'coz it really appeals me. Obviously, the company is quite in a hurry to dispose this kind of phones from their inventory. Well, color phones had… Read Full Review

My Nokia 6510 is Slowly dying as the sign-on tick no longer displays after 12 months and now the clock has gone missing off the main screen too. Of course it is not under warranty anymore and is not listed as a current phone on nokia.com.au!

Written on: 15/10/2003 by christian (1 review written)

The Nokia 6510 is infuriating when it switches itself off when writing texts, then switches itself back on and you have to re-write the whole text. I've had it for about 9 months and this has gone on for a while now. It has limited text message space and the inbox has poor memory. However, it is small, light, easy to use and doesn't look offensive… Read Full Review

The switching off problem is a software problem , take it into your nearest nokia shop they will update your software free , it takes about 4 hours, you drop it off in the mornin and pick it up in the afternoon.

Written on: 21/08/2003 by Pyromania42 (1 review written)

I'm not one to dispense accolades easily, but this little phone really is quite excellent. Most of the reviews that do not give this phone high marks complain about the fact that it's not enough of a toy. They want to compose ring tones, take pictures with it, play videogames, etc.

Personally, I buy a phone to make phone calls and write text messages. And the 6510 is the most reliable phone I have ever owned (memories of my ericsson phones make me shudder).

All the features are well… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/07/2003 by Dias. (1 review written)

I have had the Nokia 6510 for a year. I owned the 3210 before that, amazing, die-hard machine. This one is small, light, pretty but very expensive, even now that it is obsolete and you can get twice the stuff at the same price!
5 months in use, one day it chose not to let me access the catalog, though it recognised people when they called me. The official Nokia service charged me 17 euros (about 11 pounds) even though the warranty was valid and the fault was obviously not mine. The result: I… Read Full Review

Amstel's Response to Dias.'s Review

Written on: 12/11/2003

My Nokia 6510 also locks up when using sms to text a message and is very annoying to have to turn off and start all over again. The thing also likes to lock up and turn off doing a reset for no apparent reason unless it is the network sending out some sort of reset signal. DUNNO
<br>
<br>My 8210 used to do similar things until the keypad and screen were replaced. The blue screen is ok at night but in the day it is too dull to use. Why are the earpieces still so awkward? need some that actually fit peoples ear and not cause earaches when used for extended periods listening to radio! Manufacturers need to look at this valid comment. Some features are missing that my 8210 still does such as send an sms to a printer or computer via infrared port. Very handy when one has harassing sms and needs to log work ones also. Please NOKIA put this feature back on business phones. Pity did not find this out until i bought it. The plastic dummies in the store are next to useless to ascertain the actual features available and brochures don't help let alone ask a salesperson! An analog clock is much better as a screen saver than a tiny digital one in the corner. When it is dark one can always tell the time by where the hands are but try and read the 6510 digital clock even with the blinking light on for us who are losing our sight as we get older!!!!!
<br>
<br>Cheers
<br>Hans-Robert.

Hmm, bad luck on servicing. Overall though the phone is excellent, does all it's supposed to do and more, extremely reliably. Not the newset phone, but the best of its kind.

Yes, I agree. Also switches off if you open a text message and another one arrives as you do it.
<br>I'm also disappointed with the way the cover has worn - all the corners have rubbed away, as well as the seams between front and back covers. I know you can replace the covers, but at ££££. Reception doesn't seem as good as my daughter's 3410.

Written on: 24/05/2003 by Kat.. (1 review written)

I've had the Nokia 6510 for almost six months now. I have to admit, I never had any problems with it. With me being a Nokia user already, it only took a couple of days to get used to its new features. I have to admit, I miss the ringtone composer that my previous Nokia had, but that's a minor point when I consider what a reliable, stylish phone this is. Lightweight, small, user-friendly, good for fast texting, good reception, high resolution screen, fast internet access.

I was really looking forward to this Nokia 6510 for the design, but the design is all thats good. This is a very bad phone, very slow, bad battery, not much features.

The above review is pants, he must be talking about the wrong phone. I have had the phone for a year now and it is the best phone i have had so far. It aint slow, the battery can last for over a week without charge and it has loads of features. How about the FM radio? vibrate mode? multiplayer games? pffffft.

The only problem I have is that about 2x per month it turns itself off for no reason. Can be middle of writing a txt or using WAP. Probably needs to have it's firmware updated. It's V4.12 which seems to have most the bugs fixed. type *#000# or *#9999# to find yours.
<br>
<br>Otherwise very good, especially at keeping hold of a signal.

Well I'll have to agree with the others here too, cause i've been using all sorts of phones in the last 5 years here at India from Motorolas to Panasonic ...... to finally the Nokia 6510. Great phone, which is worth the money you pay for. A no nonsense phone which keeps doing its job for months without a glitch. Mind you a phone which lasts that long here at India has to be real good cause the signals are bad, the envoirnment is rough yet this one stands out. One minor thing being that the rear console seems a bit loose even when new, a bit tacky. Apart from that its good.

Written on: 15/03/2003

Th3 6510 is similar to the 8310. The 6510 has a better calendar display and an electronic wallet (fine if you do internet banking). If you enter *#0000# into your 'phone you will get the software version. My 'phone is running V 05.06 07-03-02 and occasionally crashes when I am writing an SMS message and I lose all that I have entered for that message. It doesn't happen often and I find it best to frequently COLD start your 'phone by powering it off, waiting, then powering it back on at least once per week. It's like any computer, it occasionally gets its knickers in a twist and a cold start loads the software afresh. Otherwise my 8310 is running okay. I imagine the 8310 and 6510 have very similar software. I know my software is not the latest and there is a later version available V 05.11 27/05/02.
<br>
<br>Think about getting your 'phone's software flashed-up at a Nokia Care Centre.

I've had the 6510 since Jul last yr. It seemed fine for the 1st 3 months then the problems came. It will auto-reboot when a few SMS comes in at once or when I'm composing a new SMS. There are other symptons as well but overall it just hangs or give me a "blue screen of death" similar to WinNT 4. It's most annonyin at times. Overall, it has great features but I just wished it hasnt hung so much.

My 6510 crashes too often! It is so annoying...I just can't be bothered to txt people anymore, because when it crashes all I have inputed are GONE! It is very strange...I don't trust nokia with their software anymore...most of my friends had nokia 8310, but they all BROKE..my mum's 3310 is also broken! Lucky I am getting a new contract soon...i want to get rid of this awful 6510...It is so slow...when you try to open your inbox...have to wait for 10 years...I guess the memory is too low...MAYBE NOKIA company should go back to their CELLs and investigate the problems before they sell more! HUM! Sad isnt it? I always had Nokia...but now its time for a change...

Hi... I've got a question that has been stuck in my mind for almost about a year. Since you said this phone is better than an 8310, I assume you've had an 8310. Anyway, I'm only 14 years old and from July, I've been saving up my allowance to buy a 6510. However, I couldn't make up my mind wether I should buy a 6510 or 8310. My friends say I should get an 8310 'cuz it has a younger look, but some of my friends say I should get a 6510 because of its features. To me, the looks and features count, but now I can't figure out what I want. In your opinion, please tell me what I should get. Thank you.
