I love my Nokia 3310
by kati powers (4 out of 5 stars)

If I could, I would have reviewed at 4.5 stars.

I love my Nokia 3310. I mostly use it for snake, text messaging, and phone calls. Sometimes I like to take crappy photos with the camera just to show off how un-smart my phone is. I don't need a nice camera on my phone. I have a nice camera and now that I don't have a smart phone I actually carry it with me. I'd attach my blurry nokia photos but I can only send them through bluetooth. Don't get me wrong, I love having the camera in case of emergencies.

The texting was a bit to get used to but all of the necessary options are there. I really like that you can switch between text function (T9, #, ect) easily with out going to a menu. My only complaint is that if you have long conversations with a person it sometimes takes a minute for everything to load. I have heard that some people erase messages for more memory but I haven't gotten there yet.

The phone calls work pretty well but once again it takes some getting used to the functions. I've had it for over a week now and I finally looked up how to hang up the phone call. (Those big square buttons actually have multiple functions depending on the location that you tap - or look at the illustrations on buttons).

Snake is better than ever with the endless mode. I really enjoy that you can switch the controller style. (I prefer the old school up,down,left,right) but there are many other versions that may suit different game play.

The phone has a timer, calculator, unit converter, flashlight, and voice recorder (you can make your own ringtones)

My students love to give me crap about my "trap phone" so I brag any chance I get. Today I told them I only have to charge it every 3 days (unless I'm playing snake) and then I threw it on the ground and told them I didn't have to worry about dropping it. A student asked me how much it was and I said less than $60! I told them that I have internet everywhere I go and I simply do not need a smart phone distracting me from my everyday life while in public and also I don't want to get hooked in the cycle of spending over $500 for a cell phone. I think I'm teaching them about the finer things in life.

Edit: I dropped it again to show off its durability and when it hit the ground one of the tabs on the outer case piece bent in and would not immediately snap back in place. However, I bent it back and it went back on with ease.

Edit 2: The screen will not survive being ran over by a Dodge Mini Van. But I will be purchasing the phone again.

This is exactly what I was looking for. A few months ago I ditched the smart phone, downgraded to text/call only plan and got a little flip phone. Since then I've been looking for something a little more.. stylish isn't the right word, but.. something more than just a dull, boring black flip phone. This gave it to me. It fits well in my hand, the buttons aren't too small, and I love the light blue color I got! It does take a micro sim card rather than standard sim card, so I had to get one before I could use my phone, but it was no big deal and ATT gave me a micro sim replacement right away free of charge. The messaging system is great and show in one stream rather than the multi message that most "dumb" phones have. Anyone looking to downgrade from a smart phone - this is a great option.

Nokia I hope you read this, I really wanted to like this phone!
by Ivan Cross (2 out of 5 stars)

I've been using the Nokia 5310 expressmusic since 2010 or earlier. I really like this phone but they stopped making it a long time ago, it's getting harder to find and I was excited to try this 3310 reissue. I'm a big fan of Nokia, non-smart, bar-style phones with 0 through 9 buttons rather than a touch screen.

First I'll say what I liked about the 3310 reissue. The music player works well. Easy to use and sounds good with or without headphones. I liked that it has a flashlight. It's an attractive phone. I got it in yellow and It was appealing.

Here's what I did not like. It did not have T-9 predictive text. I've become accustomed to that and it's really easy to use. It's possible to text very fast with T-9 once you get the hang of it. For those who don't know what T-9 predictive text is, it means rather than push each number the amount of times to correspond to the letter you want (example push 7 four times for S), you just push the number once and the phone guesses the word. If it's not the right word you push * for more choices. It works great.

I would of been willing to put up with that, if the calendar wasn't so limited. Here's what I mean: I put in one month worth of my schedule, and then the phone would not allow me to put anything else in. I never ran into this problem with the 5310. I get my work schedule 2 months at a time, and I have other things I need to keep track of as well. I rely on my phone for this. I'd much rather Nokia get rid of all the games that I'll never use, and give me an unlimited calendar. I returned this phone within 12 hrs of delivery.

I took the time to write this review, because I'd like Nokia to fix these problems. If they did I'd buy this phone again. Or let me know if they have a similar phone with the features I need.

Thank you.

Works great! iPhone sits in the drawer now!
by Roy B. (4 out of 5 stars)

First things first: Buy a mini SIM adapter if you are a T Mobile customer!

There are many SIM kits out there and they are cheap!

The only issue I had was putting in the SIM card. It was arduous and your manicurist is not going to be happy!

When the SIM is installed, you are in for a treat!

I never thought I would say this: I have made my iPhone the spare phone and this Nokia as my main phone (I love SIM).

The call quality is excellent for 3G.

This phone is very easy to use. It connected flawlessly to my Bluetooth speaker phone in my car.

One of the best phones I have ever owned!
(Now, if Lenovo/Motorola could bring back their Tac series of cell phones...)

YES IT WORKS OUTSIDE US great phone for elderly
by David (5 out of 5 stars)

Ok, I receive the cellphone in its box with the battery, headphones and charger. I was worried that it would not work with the cellular carrier here where I live (BTW I live in COLOMBIA outside US) but it worked like a charm. I tested two different carriers (Claro and Tigo) from my country and both worked no problem. I order this phone for my grandma and it has the basics for her so at the end Im very happy with this purchase.

HOLY BANANAS

Okay seriously, this phone is really great for the people who want a social media/smart phone detox. Really easy to use besides texting obviously. Um, don't expect to send or receive pictures, you're back to certain amount of texting characters, don't expect to use internet or apps because the phone can't handle it, the sound quality is kind of funny sounding, camera is obviously a joke haha, um, OH, theres so many random apps like games that I wish I could get off of the phone but I guess I'm too stupid to figure that okay, jk. But seriously, I want those game apps off of this phone. But, if you're a lazy lady like me trying to get through school, get this phone. Heres to one year with no smart phone.

Smartphone Detox!
by Kevin Allmond (4 out of 5 stars)
January 25, 2019

Ok, I did it. I have officially switched from a Smarphone to a feature phone. 3 days in now and i am still functning...

Here is the truth, I don't need my smartphone. Yes, I said that. After months of frustration over my smartphone not performing to doing the things that I wanted it to do, and having an unhealthy attachment to my smartphone, I started to ask myself, "do I really need it"? There were things for work that I certainly needed, but I have WiFi at the office and a tablet. I can work around this. What can I do though? Here comes the Nokia 3310. I had the classic Nokia 3310 back in the early 2000's, when all that was available was this for a cell phone and loved it. For $55 dollars, there was really no reason to not try it out, in the name of science if nothing else.

What I have found in the 3 days I have had the Nokia 3310 is, I don't need a smartphone! With the combination of my tablet in WiFi, I am able to work through all of the things I needed a smartphone for my job. What the Nokia 3310 has forced me to do is make more phone calls, which I should be doing anyway, and being more attentive to the people around me. The biggest challenge that I have found so far is texting and navigation. The texting piece is as above; I need to make more phone calls anyway. For navigation, that just tells me I need to know the lay of the land better. Forward thinking, I can download a map into Google Maps on my tablet and have the ability to navigate offline. If there is an emergency where I need navigation, I guess I can make a phone call.

This is not a smartphone! It's frustrating to see someone compare this to an Android or iPhone. That's like comparing balloons to tissue paper; they are not even close.

If you want to detox from a smartphone, this product is for you!

3G only is a liability, minor usability issues
by Sashy (3 out of 5 stars)
August 13, 2018

Update summer 2019: Since this phone is 3G only, it is going to have increasing problems getting coverage in the USA, where many carriers have or are in the process of switching off their 3G signals. It works for me in Oregon with T-Mobile if I turn on data roaming, but your mileage may vary depending on carrier and location.
-------------

Original review:

I love how small and light it is, the way all phones used to be!

I'm using it with Red Pocket wireless $10/month plan which uses the T-Mobile network, and it does a good job with calling, texting, and (VERY) basic web stuff.

Only a few minor nitpicks...

Unlike other Nokias I've used there are not many options for tweaking the user interface - for instance you can't change the main menu from a grid to a list, there's no customizable "Go To" shortcut menu, and the direction keys don't do anything on the home screen. This doesn't really make the phone worse, it's just that if they had been included that would have been better.

As far as physical usability, the labels on the buttons are small can be hard to read when you're in a medium-lit room indoors - the illumination in the buttons makes the numbers wash out. So this might be an issue if you're looking for a basic phone for grandma etc. Also while we're on the grandma topic, the direction key (which surrounds the select key) is small and thin, so it may be difficult for someone with large fingers or dexterity issues.

P.S. The unit I received (purchased from Amazon) was a single-SIM model.

It's good phone, feels very smooth in the hand! The OS is surprisingly slick and it supports threaded text messaging. Overall, I'm happy with it.

(AT&T) Won't work with current network!
by Eric Monaghan (1 out of 5 stars)
March 23, 2019

I was psyched to use this phone, I love the design and I was eager to downgrade from a smartphone to a simpler experience. Unfortunately when I took the phone to my local AT&T location to get the correct size SIM card and install it, I was told by the rep that it would not work. He even made the SIM card up, installed it, and tried to get it to connect to their 3G network -- no dice. I'm sure that this issue will only become worse as 3G grows smaller and smaller in the rear-view mirror of network infrastructure, so I can't recommend that anyone get this phone. I've started the refund process with Amazon, hopefully I can at least get my money back. I don't know why Nokia wouldn't just integrate 4G into this phone if they intend on selling it. Despite the fact that it's presented as little more than a retro curiosity, it's a shame to see a company treating something that's as essential to peoples daily lives as a cell phone with so little care and respect.
