This Nokia 9210 mobile phone can be a real boon as it can give you complete independence from the office, with calls and faxes diverted to the handset, and the ability to collect emails from your personal ISP account - very handy indeed.
But... the unit is unreliable and flaky. The slightest tap and it will start to deteriorate - loss of telephone display, fatigue in the screen cable leading to 'snow' on the main screen from time to time, non-functioning keys as dust makes its way behind... (read more)

Overall The Nokia 9210 is a very good package, the software is user freindly and very easy to access, and the need to carry two devices is eliminated.
The screen display is very bright and shows well.
The lack of a touch screen function lets it down slightly. (read more)

This seems to be the only 'smartphone' with a keyboard around at present and it does an excellent job. To be able to look at internet and receive email attachments on the move is great and the keyboard enables you to write long replies. The office software like word etc is extremely useful. The fax facility is also very helpful as you can also receive faxes. The software is on the whole stable although I have had to download programmes from the Nokia website to reinstall when I have had a... (read more)

I've had about 20 phones in the past 8 years. The 9210i is by far the best phone i've ever used. I've had Ericsson, Siemens, Motorola, other Nokia's, but this is definately the phone to have. (read more)

I wait for the new generation of the 9110 or 9210 ... but for the moment I have never seen another wonderful tools from nokia. The color in the 9210 ... not improve realy the power of the device. You can do everything like an little old computer with internet. So email and telenet work perfectly with a real keyboard and a real screen. I have buy my communicator since 2000 and use it every day. It's the phone use for system administrator or geek. (read more)

I am lucky enough to have tried them all Jornada 928 (fragile and buggy software), Ipaq 3850 with GPRS/GSM sleeve (disaster, crashed all the time), Handspring Treo (surprised me, but terrible battery), 9210 (flaky software in early versions), 9110 (good). There is only one which truly works, it does what it says on the box. The Nokia 9210i. Battery life is measured in days rather than hours. Software implemented well, and works as exepcted.

My Nokia 9210 mobile phone needed to be "booted" at least once a day to prevent errors and hang. I got a v.4.13 RAE-3 and sometimes, my SMS messages rerouted to "outbox" and send it many times without warning. Not until i "cold" boot it. It's very frustating to access Mails because you can't delete unwanted mails not unless you reconnect again. PC mail sync is also irritating. All in all, 9210 is buggy that's why 9210i went boosting as a nifty alternative. Nokia guys should do something in... (read more)

Well Phone is goood but i think Nokia ppl cant handle it properly. I bought this from UAE and i live in Pakistan.

Loved what the phone could do - could send emails and faxes on the train and surf the net. Handsfree phone, good with SMSes.
But could not get any backup when the software acted up. Had to find out the phone was sold to me with outdated software and that the most current version is riddled with errors as well.
Handed my 9210 back to nokia after 3 weeks. (read more)

The Nokia Communicator is by far the worst phone i have ever bought. It was a disaster from the first instance. i Couldnt bare the weight, it was literally like carrying a laptop around with you, and to pay 500 pounds or so for something so ridiculously overrated is crazy. its a good job, there was a 14 day money back guarantee, or i'd still be pulling out my hair! .. DONT BUY IT. :) (read more)

Everyone knows the memory probs on the Nokia 9210 mobile phone however with work these can be overcome, for example by compressing files, storing data and installing programs on MMC. If you're serious about using this for work, as I am, buy a 64Mb MMC or if your budget allows the 128MB one. You can then use this as your main memory drive and keep the phone memory clear for accessing large files and of course running graphic rich programmes like Dragonfire and Rayman!
I wouldn't buy the next... (read more)

Overall, the Nokia 9210 mobile phone is a step backwards after the simplicity of the 9110. Although the whole package is far more glitzy there are a huge number of features missing or ludicrously well sequestered in the monstrous OS. Writing a fax or SMS required two button presses in a 9110, now requires 4. Function buttons used to toggle between applications, now every time you access more than one open file you have to leave another running and reselect it through a central menu rather... (read more)

The Nokia 9210 is the worst mobile phone I have ever bought in my entire life. Have been experiencing very irritating problems since I bought this expensive phone. My unit is now in its v4.13 but still hangs and system crash very often. Could not send SMS, get auto shut off, very embarrassing especially in the middle of a very important phone call. Very impolite indeed. Unstable synchronisation, gets plenty of error messages in between. Insufficient memory. Until now Nokia is not answering... (read more)

The screen was the first thing that I fell in love with on the nokia 9210 phone. The volume was good. In the office I use the speakerphone although in the field I use the handsfree kit. I was just told that if I took out the earpiece but kept the handsfree attached, they were able to call my phone, hear me talking, but am not aware of the fact. I still have to figure out whether that's something to do with the handsfree or the anykey respond setting.
I have accepted it to be 'bulky'... (read more)

People call the nokia 9210 'bulky' or a 'brick', but do they put that criticism into perspective? You cannot judge the 9210 solely as a phone, it is a hybrid product with combined PDA and mobile phone. In that sense it is still the market leader and beats the latest generation offerings of Sagem and Trium hands down, especially on mobile phone functionality, colour screen and build quality. It is longer than the Ipaq style PDA's but not as broad and takes up the same room, but then you need... (read more)

For someone on the move a lot, who has to receive and then distribute messages using various media the nokia 9210 is brilliant. I wouldn't be without it.
The device itself generates an initial reaction from people of 'brick' but once you've used it, it actually becomes quite sexy and attractive; it is definitely the dinkiest palmtop type of device you'll get at the moment. Functionally it is pleasing to use and has many appealing features such as 'flight' mode (disable network comms when in... (read more)

THE NOKIA 9210 HAS EASY TO USE FUNCTIONS AND RATHER QUICK MOBILE W.W.W. ALLOWS YOU TO ACCESS THE INTERNET AND SEND E-MAIL ANYWHERE. THE COLOR SCREEN IS PERFECT FOR POWERPOINT AND DOWNLOADS. THE FULL 'QWERTY' KEYBOARD IS IDEAL FOR SCHOOL WORK(MICROSOFT WORD) AND SENDING SMS (TEXT) MESSAGES FAST AND EASILY.
THE NOKIA 9210 IS JUST THAT LITTLE BIT TOO BIG AND HEAVY. IT IS HARD TO FIT IT INTO A TROUSER POCKET. IT IS SLOW AT SENDING E-MAIL WITHOUT A NOKIA PHONE CARD.

The symbian alliance was created (Psion,motorola,Nokia...) to bring phone & PDA technology into one Operating system. This they've organised well with quartz, crystal & Pearl.
If the idea is to allow the pda to browse the net and receive email then a touchscreen is vital. The screen is to small and screen space is wasted by titles at the top of the screen and the 4 function buttons on the right. Touchscreen would have been far better. Todays computers are about being enjoyable and... (read more)

Great if you want an all in one unit, using this machine is like having the 'swiss army knife' of the PDA world always at your side.
You can read Ebooks on it, look at maps, plan routes, send email, look at your diary, surf the net (wap amd web)and still make a hands free call when your doing it all. (read more)

Having owned a nokia 9110 for two years I was looking forward to the release of the nokia 9210 since it was announced in 2000. Upon buying it two days after its release date I was very impressed by the colour screen and much improved keyboard but felt that the screen could have been a little larger without increasing the dimensions of the phone. The software capabilities of the device are light years ahead of its predecessor and web browser is a significant improvement as is the inclusion of... (read more)

The Nokia 9210 Communicator is a great concept: the synchronizable calendar is great, and it has improved considerably from the Nokia 9110. Also, the design and ergonomy represent an improvement over 9110 Communicator, not to mention the color screen. However, the epoc operating system is not there yet: the system is simply too slow. I suspect that the design of the memory indexing function has failed miserably. Even the text message function is too slow: it takes ages for the icons to... (read more)

This phone is a superb replacement for the Nokia 9110, I just can't wait to see what the replacement is going to be like for the Nokia 9210.
There is no other mobile phone on the market which can match it on the number of features it has. I use a psion 5mx as well, but now that is left at home because the Communicator can take care of everything, the digital Camera supplied is garbage, I brought a Sony DSC-P50 to use with it, the picture quality is sensational I can now take pictures and...

An incredible mobile phone/PDA and more. Nokia, however, need to start improving their customer service. Try emailing them or asking for support!!! The very annoying bugs have yet to be formally announced by Nokia, though I have heard rumors that they are recalling units. I called my distributor in Oman and they confirmed that there were problems with my phone, and said they would replace it. 10 days later I am still waiting! (read more)

After a few days use, the Nokia 9210 seems to be living up to expectations. The screen is superb, web sites look like web sites, games look like the Gameboy advance and the free digital camera is limited but does a satisfactory job (you could take a photo, download it and then connect to your mail server and email it within a minute)
If you have a 9110, its worth the upgrade, if you don't have a 9110, its worth the money. Buy one and you'll wonder how you've lived without it (haven't... (read more)
