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 more)

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,... (read more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

The Nokia 5110 mobile phone was, for many people, their first "proper" digital mobile phone.
I got mine after SIX previous different models of phone that never lasted more than two
months, and although old even when I got it; I had very few complaints with it.
You still see thousands around, which must be testament to their longevity.
I replaced mine only when the screen started going blank. (Solved with masking tape around the headpiece). (read more)

The 5110 was my first Nokia, and a major advance on the Motorola Memphis which had been my first mobile. Delighted at the wider choice of tones particularly the musical ones, the changeable covers and enjoyed playing Snake and Memory. However, with not being able to download or compose any tones, I did feel I was missing out on something.
Still, it was a good basic introduction to Nokia phones and, like all Nokias, it had that easy to navigate menu system and if you missed a call, it was... (read more)

I had the Nokia 5110 mobile phone for the last two years. As mobile phone goes it works great. The battery life is fantastic. On one charge it has a standby time of about one week. Even after two years, with some battery care the standby time remains unchanged. I highly recommend it for those who recharge their phone infrequently.
Unfortunately, being "old" technology, the phone is larger than some of the newer models. With a leather case, the phone is quite large, and would be... (read more)

This phone has lasted me a few years, there hasn't been any problems with it. If there is one thing I don't like about it, it's that I can't get extra ringtones. But for the price that I paid with a vibrating battery on a prepaid plan it wasn't a bad price at all. I find this phone economical, especially on prepaid, and easy to use. The buttons are an excellent size, while the buttons on smaller phones, such as the 8250, or 8850 are VERY small and hard to touch. Overall, I rate this phone a... (read more)
