I bought my Nokia 8310 second hand 2 years ago and it has been great! Small size makes it easy to slip in your pocket, has alarm clock with snooze, voice recorder and stop clock (and other functions I've never used like the radio and WAP).
I've read some of the other reviews about noise and turning itself off. I've never had the noise but about 2 months ago it did start re-booting itself. However, considering this phone is about 3 years old and had been fine up till then, I think that's... (read more)

The Nokia 8310 is the best phone I have had 4 years now I have had it paid an arm and a leg for it £299 but it was worth it 4 years hassle free brilliant battery life. I have made calls and sent text and it is still on full battery after 5 days with the 400 hour battery in it, one word for it, amazing. (read more)

Can't fault the 8310 yet. Not had it long but I'm pleased with it. I have recently got rid off a Nokia 6820 and I prefer the 8310.
It's got a good radio, messaging key board, and excellent blue light. (read more)

Nokia 8310 - A nice phone to hold, but a bad phone to use. The software is very unstable and hangs often. It also switches off by itself all the time even after the phone was sent back to Nokia for repairs about 3 times. The calender function is also not as good as the 6510's. Some functions are not even on par to the 6510 even though it's more expensive than the 8310 and under the same category. Not a good phone to buy. (read more)

I had the Nokia 8310 for about 12 months, and at first it was the best phone I had owned so far. But from 6 months onwards it was always rejecting the sim card, re-booting itself (switching off and turning back on) and I had never dropped it at all. A lot of my friends owned this phone at the time and many had the same problems. On the good side, it had a radio, a blue screen (or red) which made a change from the boring green. It looked great and the best thing for me was the memory capacity... (read more)

The Nokia 8310 is a truly excellent mobile phone which in my opinion cannot be faulted. It does the job extremely well and efficiently even after I have dropped it on the floor and on hard road surfaces several times. The logic is excellent as on all Nokias. The only drawback is that it is not 'Bluetooth' without extras. (read more)

I have had the Nokia 8310 for just under a year now. At first i thought it was great it appeared to look great and have exiting games. But as timw went on the novelty sort of wore of. The games become quite boring after a while. It looks very good but it is old and out of date now. Also it doesn't have composer so every time you want a new tone you have to pay about £2-£3 for it! The internet works well and is easy to use. It has a calender which can process dates untill about the year 4000!... (read more)

The Nokia 8310 is very stylish and is small enough to fit in the smallest of pockets. BUT, it switches off without warning meaning you miss calls and texts etc.
Callers often complain about a squeeling noise when they call me. This is not audiable to me, but means sometimes calls have to be terminated and made again.
The radio is a cool feature. Some of the other features are useless. You would never use them.
Not the best phone on the market by a long shot. (read more)

I picked up a Nokia 8310 as a free upgrade from my 8210 (which was 2 years trouble free). All I wanted was a small mobile phone that works well for basic use so I figured the 8310 would be as good - right ? WRONG. Whilst I haven't suffered the 'switch off' problems apparently common with this phone, friends and family constantly complain about line noise when they ring me, likening the noise to 'crackling' and 'a fax machine'.
I will probably switch back to my 8210 until my next 'free... (read more)

The Nokia 8310 mobile phone's tech support probably doesn't exist when their phones are designed by so-called "fashion designers"?

I "graduated" to a Nokia 8310 from the older 8210. Its main selling point was really its size. I wanted a phone that I could bring with me on nights out which would fit comfortably and inconspicuously into my trouser pocket. The 8310 does just that. It is a nice size phone, with decent reception and enough features to get you through, although it won't blow the minds of any technophiles. I have had it for over a year now so feel able to comment on it reasonably dispassionately.

Immensely annoying. I know a lot of people who have these Nokia 8310, and everyone has had problems.
