No frills/camera/bluetooth or any of that. What it does have is :
* Good sound quality
* Easy to navigate buttons and menu functions/address book
* Alarm that sounds even when the phone is switched off (some of the more recent models dont, which is a pain as I use my phone as a wakeup alarm when travelling)
* decent battery life - I tend to recharge overnight, but it can last a few days in a pinch.
* Solid build. Mine has been knocked around a fair bit, and is showing signs of wear on the case, but it still functions perfectly.
* vast range of changeable covers. Not my cup of tea, but if you want to colour co-ordinate then you can, they are sold cheaply at any market stall.
* fairly cheap to buy these days. Thay can be unlocked to all networks for £5 or less at many internet sites.
I have tried many of the modern phones, and their features are very impressive. But call me a ludite, I really just want a phone to make calls, not to play games or do bluetooth dating.
If you want to impress your friends with the latest technology, dont buy this. But if you want a good, dependable phone that is easy to use and reliable, you could do a lot worse.
The 3310 took over the 3210 as 'the phone to have' but now its very much dropped in popularity. However I believe it still has a lot to offer. My dad recently got given one for work and it is PERFECT for him, someone new to mobiles. The navi key is very simple to use, and a quirky idea. The menu contains games, the ability to text, an alarm, I mean what else could you REALLY want? Sure my own phone has a camera, colour screen etc...but we wont go into that!
I would say all in all that for the parent just buying their child their first phone, or for someone new to using mobiles, this is the perfect choice. Nokias are well made, easy to use and there is PLENTY of documentation about for them. If only Nokia made a flip phone, I'd still be buying from them.
I remember back in 2003 I was trekking through wartorn Baghdad when a stray 50 calibre sniper bullet hit me directly in the chest. Luckily I had my Nokia 3310 in my breast pocket, which deflected the bullet and blew up a tank.
A few years later, whilst on a business trip to Paris I decided to visit the Eiffel Tower. Whilst raising my phone into the air to try and attain signal (I was on Tesco Mobile) a 20m wide meteor happened to strike me directly. Luckily the meteor completely disintegrated upon contact with my trusty 3310, earning me the Légion d'Honneur.
Slightly embarrassingly, I have dropped my phone once or twice. I seem to remember once on holiday in Haiti in 2010, and again visiting Fukushima in 2011.
This phone has served me very well, and still does to this day.
Forget cameras, apps, the Internet this phone is all about durability. I literally threw my 3310 up in the air and let it hit the ground, bounced it off walls, dropped it in a puddle, dropped it in the bath and to this day it still works fine (after drying it out). I keep it as a back-up for when my phone (blackberry curve) runs out of battery or I cant get signal (3310 seems to manage to get signal where ever I go).
This phone is great at being a phone, nothing more but then it doesn't pretend to be anything else. Its such a shame to see Nokia now, their phones are not to the same standard as the 3310 was. My latest Nokia was the c3 which was a huge disappointment and subsequently saw me 'sack' Nokia as my handset of choice, I have now reluctantly converted to Blackberry (they are all-round good phones).
So many great memories I share with my little 3310, I will never get rid off it. Nokia, go back to what you were good at (making indestructible phones). Give up on the smartphones cus you cant do em as good as apple or blackberry, sorry its the truth.
Overall the 3310 was a turning point in the way designers made mobile phones, just about all of us had one and loved it. Nowadays this phone is only really worthy of being a back up, but its a back up you would trust your life with.
My rating: 92% One of the best mobile phones ever made worthy of 'legend' status.
Reliability: 10/10 The most reliable phone I've ever owned.
