Written on: 19/07/2004 by Babyface (1 review written)

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… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/04/2004 by FabioG (1 review written)

I really don't understand why so many people waste half a month's wage worth of money in these new super mobile phones. Ok, so the Nokia 5110 won't take pictures, record short movie clips, record sounds, serve as a remote controller for your tv set, and bring you coffee.

So what? It's as tough and durable as they come, I've had this mobile phone for four years now. Four years. Most things I own never last me more than two years at best. It's seen the skies of six different countries, fallen… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/04/2004 by Mikeb100 (1 review written)

Having owned 2 of these Nokia 5110 mobile phones, i found that the only major problem i had with them was the screen. The other problem i had which forced me to get a new one was the common fault (or so i believe) of the contact service message. I have since replaced it with a 3410 purely to keep up with the times as it is a bit old now. However it is still a good entry level phone and takes some hard knocks… Read Full Review

I found this phone a classic one from Nokia. I purchased my Nokia 5110 in 1998 but never been repaired eversince except changed the backlights. Well, of course battery don't lasts forever so I changed a new one every year to keep it running. My back-up phone in case my new generation Nokia phone goes kaput. Nowadays Nokia phones are not good or as reliable and durable as the 5110s. The 5110 should have been made as a model to copy to build new generation phones for Nokia..but they made another… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/06/2003 by Jen. (1 review written)

This was the first phone I ever bought with my first ever wage packet basically because it was the next stage up from a brick. I have to say that this phone (or at least MY phone) has seriously earned it's place in the hall of fame. Not only has it always been so easy to use and I can navigate the whole phone and write and send a text message with my eyes shut, it is the most durable phone I have ever seen. When I was taking my GCSE's me and my friends relaxed by playing "toss the phone" and it… Read Full Review

My primary business is in the computer and telecommunications business and I have used and dealt with many cell phones but the nokia 5110 really stands out. For starters it is built like a tank....yet looks sleek and pleasing to the eye. I use the phone regularly and the most striking feature of this phone is its durability. I am stating for a fact that this phone is tough. I must have dropped this phone at least 30 times (DO NOT TRY WITH UR CELL). Each time my heart skipped a beat but i was… Read Full Review

Miyu.'s Response to 9115110.'s Review

Written on: 22/03/2003

I don't know whether you bought a Nokia 5110 which is 3 years old (~ max battery lifetime), or just broke your battery with methods I can't imagine.
<br>
<br>It sounds like your battery is messed up anyway. Do you expect a battery to last forever? Well, guess what, they don't... It's not totally broken down either.
<br>
<br>I have had one of these phones for almost 3 years, and it still looks and works good, even after being thrown against the wall and so on. Yeah, mine is totally modified, and only the internals remain original. (But the original BMS battery I have still works without problems, altought it has not been used for ages)
<br>
<br>I would have just bought a new battery if I were you. :) And a slim one, makes the phone weight a lot less, plus it has more energy capacity.
<br>
<br>Well I thought I would just get this off my heart. I hate when someone says bad stuff about the only phone I find truely worth the money it costs.

Sadly I still have my Nokia 5110 mobile phone and have had it for two years. It is a good phone, it does what you need and I haven't had any problems with it. However it isn't exactly "cool" as it is So old (can you even still buy them?!) but my only really complaint is not looking that stylish...but even worse I really want a new funky ringtone and my phones just too old!… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2003

If you think a Nokia 5110 can't look cool, just because it is old.. Think again!
<br>Here is what to get, if you really want it to look good instead of buying a new cellphone. The prices are estimates as the pieces cost different in each shop, and since I live in an expensive country they can possibly be cheaper elsewhere:
<br>A no antennae back cover, I got mine for $10 including expert change; it has better look and gets the radio waves really good aswell!
<br>A slim or ultra slim battery, they both look really cool on a 5110! I got my slim battery second hand for $10 dollars. PS slim battery from Nokia lasts longer than the standard BMS battery (and weights a lot less).
<br>A nice looking cover and some cool buttons to go with it, in my case it was a sleek black cover and black buttons. They cost 10 dollars together.
<br>And for about 12 dollars you can get the leds for lightning the keypad and display changed aswell, to either blue for nice, friendly look or red, for the demonic look.
<br>
<br>I think it is possible to get new ringtones for a 5110, if it is manufactured after the mid 2000 then it should be able to recive ringtones. (Unconfirmed tho, my phone is from start of 2000)
<br>
<br>Oh well, I don't expect many want to waste time on making there old cellphone look better... But since everyone has these new fancy phones which have keys that are SO tiny you have to use all sort of tricks to push 'em, I hope it inspires someone to make there old Nokia 5110 look unique instead of buying a new one! (I have 4 phones, with the oldest one being a 5110, I still love that one the best ^_^ )

Written on: 11/04/2002 by T. (1 review written)

I brought a Nokia 5110 mobile phone off a mate for seven quid and it's a real workhorse. For its age it has loads of features which some phones of the same age lack. For instance it has interchangeable facias and it can recieve picture messages which a lot of older phones lack. These phones are well built and there are plenty about so you can get a good secondhand buy. overall a great buy. I'm looking to get a 3310 now tho ;-)… Read Full Review
