      • "NO CHANGEABLE COVERS"

      the 6210 is a great phone.it was a one of a kind about a year ago when it was the only phone with 150 txt message storage space,but now there is the 8310 ,6310 and the 6310i.i also like the design of this phone. also it has very good reception AND THE VIBRA CALL FEATURE..So now if you are going to buy a new phone i would advice you to get a 6310i.I WAS EXPECTING A COMPOSER FROM THIS PHONE.iT is also a dissappointment that you cant change faces on it.

        Disadvantages

        I have had my Nokia 6210 for over 2 1 /2 years now and its still running strong. Working within the IT industry I have had chance to test a lot of mobile phones. None of which are as good and reliable as my 6210. Usually the buttons fade after a year, or the battery becomes loose or the screen becomes fuzzy, but this is all in a days work for my trusty 6210. The reason I found it so reliable is that it doesn?t have clip on fronts or backs, which tend to wear out the phone. The screen seems more robust than others and the keys don?t seem to be the usual cheep things that wear. I have taken it around the world, dropped it (some from quite a height), got sand in it and use it regularly every day, and it still looks new. Well almost, just a little worn where the plastic is painted grey, but nothing major. I used the 8210 for a while and this failed after a few weeks, its replacement had a faulty screen after a short while, similar with the 7110. I found the Siemans phones to wear quickly and the keys to break. The Ericsons are made like tanks and will plough through anything, but the previous models are very dated and the new ones are very fiddly. For now I am sticking with my 6210 as I haven?t found anything to replace it. I haven?t tried the Nokia 6310 yet though.

          • "Difficult to find replacement fascias"

          I've had my 6210 for about a year, and it has been a typically reliable, well-designed piece of Nokia kit. My phone takes quite a battering, and regularly gets dropped, scraped, and sat on. Luckily, I have had no problems with the phone yet (fingers crossed). I take good reception and speech clarity for granted on modern phones these days, and had no problem with the 6210 in this respect. I occasionally have to connect my laptop to the internet for work purposes, and the infra-red link between the phone and the PC works perfectly, and eliminates the need for messy wires trailing all over the place. The things I like best about this phone are its large memory (150 texts!), its large screen which is great for WAP browsing, and its ability to connect to a PC allowing you to quickly and easily edit your contacts and texts. My only dislikes are the phone's size, and its plain looks. I have fitted the ultra-slim battery, which helps the phone to slip into your pocket slightly more easily and also reduces weight. I have also fitted a silver fascia, which gives the phone a more modern look. Replacement fascias are difficult to find for this phone. I couldn't find any fascias in the major high street mobile phone chains, and ended up getting mine on ebay from a Danish company. Fitting the replacement fascia is reasonably easy, but requires a special mobile phone screwdriver (a Torx T6, again available on the net). I am very pleased with my 6210. I am soon upgrading to a Nokia 6510, which should hopefully give me all of the features but in a smaller and better looking package!

            This phone is great! When I first got it out of it's box, I was surprised how thin and light it was. The best bits are the huge memory for hundreds of SMS's and addresses, so you shouldn't ever run out. Using it connected to a laptop via infra-red or cable is good for surfing the web, and for WAP it has a nice big screen. There have been a few problems due to faulty software, but this can be upgraded free of charge. The battery also tends to wobble a bit which can cause the phone to turn off. Other than that - a great all round phone. I expecially like the games, the newer games are much better than (dare I say it?) snkae!!!

              Will the letter be really delivered? How many days will it take to reach? When will I get a reply? So do I feel lucky that I am in these times where a time difference of a second is called delay! For long I had this thought, that cell phones are only a CEO?s boon and a salesman utility. For others, especially non-business people, it is just a frippery. At least the way people carry it around and feel their ego pumped to hold one and say ?Hello? and look around for gawking neighbors gives me that impression. But on second thoughts, I think it is a state of technology item, which everyone must own as it has a feature of ?contact me anywhere?. Now parents need not worry about their grown up kids being late, as they now have the kids location (if the truth travels through radio waves i.e). But telecom today is a revolution with SMS, GSM, I-Mode, 3G and such other technologies. I like this technology and carry a calculator, a personal organizer, an alarm clock, a fax machine, a pager, videogame, a net browser, an electronic diary and a mobile phone to my office everyday and my profile does not permit me to wear cargo pants to my office. Actually I am talking about a single product here that is just slightly bigger than my palm and weighs only 114 g. It?s my NOKIA 6210. Nokia 6210 is priced steeply at £200 in England, though I got mine at £120 at gray market. The NOKIA 6210 comes at a steep price of Rs. 18,100 in Maharashtra (as mentioned on my box dated Nov 2000). It could be Rs 12,000 to Rs. 15,000 now since Nokia is aggressive about its new 8000 series phones (seen the ad with blue screen). I got mine from gray market at Rs. 12,000 (boxed piece). The NOKIA 6210 ships with a Nokia charger (ACP-8), a PC Suite CD (software for modem installation etc) and an owner?s guide. So the question lurking in your mind now could be ?Well mobiles are now available at Rs. 3000 to Rs. 6000 and also includes WAP enabled phones from
              Triump and Siemens C35i or Alcatel 500 and 700 or even the NOKIA 3210 or 3310. So why the big tag on this one? Is it worth the price? I strongly put a ?YES? opinion. The reasons are as follows: 1)CLARITY: Old Mobile phones ships with Half rate (HR) and Full Rate (FR) codecs. But 6210 ships with an extra Enhanced Full Rate (EFR) codec. What it means is better clarity of speech even in a significant interference. 2)BATTERY LIFE: I mention this because it is the prime factor that decides the performance of cell phones when you need it most. People land up buying C35i because it is slim and small, but repent due to poor battery life. I can carry my Nokia 6210 for 6-7 days without charging, though I admit that my phone usage is not that high. But a standard NiMH 900 mAh battery has 4h 30 min of talk time and 55-260 h of standby time. The expensive BLS-4 extended battery and Li-ion 1500 mAh claim 7 h of talk time and 95 ? 430 h of standby time. 3)HUGE MEMORY: Though the SIM cards can hold upto 250 numbers, what does one do when he/she has to change SIM card. Retype all numbers? So a phones memory is next important component. My friend says he can store 200 numbers on his Triump model and another claims 300 numbers on Nokia 3210 (extinct already). So naturally I feel proud of 6210 as it can hold 500 names with 3 numbers and a single line of text and upto 150 text only messages, 50 picture messages and 220 calendar notes. 4)LARGE DISPLAY: 96 X 60 pixels and illuminated by traditional green light (not blue like the 8250) 5)PREDICTIVE TEXT: SMS services is yet another feature and messages long as 160 characters can be sent. But keying a word on mobile phone is a boring and painful job. This is possible using the predictive text technology from Nokia and activating the T9 dictionary. For slangs or words that do not exist in this dictionary (eg. Kaise ho), one has to necessarily follow the traditional painful process.
              6)ORGANIZER: So your task lists for the day, week and month, appointments, reminders, birthdays and anniversaries can be fed into the phone and you have a secretary with you now. This feature is compatible with MS Outlook and such tasks etc can be downloaded from your PC. Then there is a phone book where one can store names of contact persons, their phone numbers, e-mail ids, short notes on each. Mails can be neatly organized into folders 7)CALCULATOR: A good utility but lacks precision and may result in errors due to rounding of digits. 8)WAP 1.1 BROWSER: Now this allows surfing the WAP enabled sites like Bplmobile, Yahoo and Rediff too. 9)DATA AND FAX COMMUNICATIONS: This can be done after installing the software (modem drivers etc) and is possible in two ways ? IR port and Serial cable. NOKIA 6210 is the first ever-mobile phone to boast of new High Speed Circuit Switched Data (HSCSD) technology, which doubles the data transmission speed (28.8 Kbps as against 14.4 Kbps for other makes). For Internet downloads it claims speeds of 43.2 Kbps though it is largely dependant on network conditions and ISP. Well still not like the future 3G technology, but good enough. 10)GAME: There are 3 games. ?SNAKES? is quite common and PAIRS is a test of our memory but the one I like is OPPOSITES as it is really mind taxing and impossible to win at higher levels, second only to chess. These games can be played between two Nokia 6210 owners via the IR port. 11)VOICE DIALING: As many as 10 numbers can be dialed by using this voice tag feature where slightly long names can be spoken to the phone and if it matches with recorded voice earlier, it dials the number in 1.5 seconds. The list of features just goes on like 1. different tunes to identify different group of contacts. 2. picture messaging 3. 32 ringing tunes and more can be downloaded. 4. Vibrating alert 5. Security in terms of pin code, pin2 cod
              e, call barring code, security code. 6.Keypad lock. Well I think I have already crossed Rs. 20,000 worth of features. Anything more than 6210 is a communicator.

              Disadvantages

              Dear Reader, Browsing through some of the other opinions here this is going to come as a bit of a surprise to you all. but this phone caused me one hell of a headache - and that's without the microwaves! I bought the 6210 because it is a 'business phone', and i thought that this meant that that it would be reliable, dependable and have excellent aftersales service. Oh Dear. in the short life it lead (4 months), my 6210 went into the repair shop no less than 3 times - why? because it kept switching itself off! what is the point in a phone that deactivates at random? it saved battery power, sure. but it meant that i couldn't recieve calls. D'oh! Anyway, the fourth and final time i took the phone into the repair shop it was pronounced dead on arrival due to water damage. I was confused, i'd never knowingly taken my phone swimming and, as much as i loved it, i never bathed with it. The problem, it seems, was that i was using it outside (it's humid -see?) Call me a literalist if you must, but i think if a mobile phone is to be truly 'mobile' then outdoor use is pretty important, after all, most indoor places have landlines. Think about it. Go ahead - buy this phone, it looks cool, it has snake 2 and it can store 180 text messages. But when it breaks, and it will... think of me! Thanks for reading

                Nokia 6210 is convenient and pleasantly lies in a hand, and the small thickness allows carrying it in a pocket. By the telephone is rather comfortable to use. The buttons large and easily are accessible. Already has become good tradition, that the devices Nokia are equipped with an extensive and very in-depth system of the menu with the floating helps. Due to a large size of a screen all information is perceived without problems. The functionality also is traditional - from a model to a model an amount accessible to the user of functions is only increased. So, for example, in the telephone are present infrared port, modem, WAP-browser and much other. Connection with the computer has passed without any difficulties. It was not required and to install additional drivers. Windows 98 independently has defined a type of the connected device. By the way, from a point of view of Windows built-in in the telephone the modem is determined just so, as well as usual, in external or internal performance. Accordingly through the modem of the cell telephone it is possible to receive access to all functions, which are accessible from the usual modem. The quality of infrared connection nor has caused any problems. The model has not a cover, therefore keyboard lock is obviously necessary. However, after tiresome and continuous searches, by addressing at last to the description, I have detected a required sequence of pressing. Has appeared, that for the keyboard lock it is necessary to press a button of "Menu", and then "*". Notwithstanding what the sequence is rather convenient and is logical, it is necessary to spend a lot of time to have. By the way, the deblocking of the keyboard is accompanied by the help and any problems does not call. A voice set and system of accelerated input of the text messages T9 favorably supplement the large set of functionalities. The qualitative and convenient telephone.

                  Disadvantages

                  The Nokia mobile telephone is sheer class easy to use and packed with features. I don't really know where to start with the amount of features this phone has but I think one of the best is the phone book. The fact that you can store so many names is wonderful and that you can store different numbers under the heading of one name is also great and saves on time and space. The phone also has a great calendar feature which allows you to enter appointments. Once entered the phone will then bleep at a time you have requested to remind you of the event. It also has the ability to store birthdays and anniversary’s and then remembers them for the following years. The wap feature on the phone is very easy to set up and use and you can be surfing within minutes. It also gives you the chance of saving your favourite wap pages for direct access. Another great feature of the wap is that on the network I use which is One 2 One you can access your account and check how much your call spend is. The Nokia 6210 again has all the standard Nokia games on which can pass away a few hours. The standby and talktime on the phone is very good and will easily last the big uses a couple of days. I have found that after a few months of use the battery does become a little fatigued The phone also has the ability to store many text messages which means u don’t have to keep deleting them all the time. But of course when it does become full it takes you much longer to delete them all. The phone is also very good on reception and I have never dropped a call yet with it. One downfall I have found with this phone is that when you take it from your car kit, the keypad lock should come back on. But although it does show the symbol that the keypad lock is on sometimes it is not actually on. I would recommend this phone to anyone but the business user especially due to great battery perfor
                  mance and large phone book.

                    After using an Ericsson handset for the past 18 months, it was nice to make a return to the Nokia fold. My company now issues the 6210 and standard across the company, much to my pleasure and I was quick to take up the offer of a new handset. WAP WAP has turned out not to be all it was cracked up to be, but it still can be a useful, if limited tool. The 6210?s WAP features make setup a lot easier than with some other handsets. (Ericsson handset can be particularly difficult in my experience) Battery The standard battery supplied is a Lithium-Ion which has the benefit of being light, having long standby and use life and not suffering from memory effect. However, a Li-Ion battery still needs a good charging on first use (in excess of 16 hours) and unfortunately Nokia neglects to mention this anywhere in the packaging for this handset. Memory The 6210 comes with a large address book memory holding up to 500 entries and can also hold in the region of 150 text messages! Voice Dialling A great, useful feature for car kit users, however, in my experience this is something Ericsson have mastered more efficiently. My 6210 often confuses commands, while my old Ericsson T18s was very accurate. Plus I still haven?t found a way to answer the 6210 with a voice command! As with everything, there are good and bad points; in my opinion the positives far outweigh the negatives. Overall, this is a neat, feature packed handset which is now becoming affordable

                    Disadvantages

                    The 6210 is the most unreliable Nokia phone that I have ever owned. Over the last six years, I have used (with pleasure) each generation of technology from Nokia. I had never had serious problems with any Nokia phone, that was until I upgraded to the Nokia 6210. The problems that I have encountered are as follows: 1) Rapid fluctuations in signal quality 2) Every 10-11th call will disappear mid call 3) The phone will randomly freeze and lock up either mid call or once you press cancel 4) The battery connections are loose and this causes power to disappear 5) Every fifth or sixth call will not complete In total I have replaced my 6210 over 7 times, each time the same problems always reappear within 1 month of owning the phone. Every time the phone is replaced I get the same messsage from my Network operator (Orange), that is that the 6210 has some known problems, but that the replacement phone will solve my problems - guess what, it never does. If Nokia could solve these technical problems then the 6210 would be a fantastic phone to own, but until then, I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy.

                      Ok my phone is ringing. What phone is it? Its a nokia 6210. Its actually really grat, yet i haven't tried everything yet. I can go on Pay As You Go, or contract, I know that much for sure. I can play snake 2 though and I find that really fun on really long and annoying journies. Yets its just so tiny! I can fit it in anywhere in my clothes, yet that can be a bit annoying when its hard to find. Phone companies can send you the greatest hits as a ring tone. If you find websites on ask jeeves, they can usually send you logos or ring tones for free. Some of them can be really naff so try out the internet first before you shell £5 to get what you might think would be a good ringtone but it turns out not to be. The WAP is actually really cool. I can send e-mail on it, which is handy, as well as check out some of my cool sites on it, yet I cant play some of my online games on it (boohoo!). Wiht high-speed data tranfer it can do really cool stuff with other phones at high speed apparently, yet I haven't tried it yet. Apparently, the specs are: Availability: Europe, Africa, and Asia Pacific Operating frequency: EGSM 900 / GSM 1800 dual band Weight: 114 grams with standard BLS-2N battery Dimensions: 129.5 x 47.3 x 18.8mm, 95 cc Talk time: 2 hours 30 minutes – 4 hours 30 minutes Standby time: 55 – 260 h Key features: slim, light, very useful calendar, long talk and standby time. Display: high resolution, illuminated graphical dynamic display, 96 x 60 pixels Colours: available in 3 chameleon colours – black night, grey dusk and red sunset. Games: Snake 2, Opposite and Pairs 2 Now that sounds quite good. Yet, as many nokia owners know, the menu features are as standard: 1. Messages (The Option which lets send and receive text messages) 2. Call Register (allows you to view recent call operations) 3. Profiles (this include
                      s ring tones. You can have a total of 40 tones, and different modes, e.g. Silent, General, and personal ones) 4. Setting (loads option here) 5. Call Divert (Allows to choose options of where to divert your calls) 6. Games (includes Snake 2(2players) Opposite and Pairs 2) 7. Calculator (allows to calculate sums, also includes an exchange rate) 8. Calendar (important dates) 9. Infrared (Infra Red devices) 10. Services (WAP browser) Which I think is wicked. Depending on where you are and what time of day it is and who you call can determine what the price of a call per minute could be, but I like by phone, and I gotta go answer it now! Bye!

                        Disadvantages

                        Nokia has struck gold with this new phone, designed for the buisnessman on the go. It contains a huge range of features, most of them extremely useful. For example: Text message capacity of 150 Phonebook memory of upto 500 WAP-enabled Large screen No antenna Light, at less than 150g Lithium-ion battery as standard. Voice dialling These features are some of the reasons why I find this phone so appealing. It is light, with a large backlit screen, suitable for WAP operation. Navigation on the WAP system is hampered by Nokia not programming the predictive-text function into any part of the phone other than the text-messaging option. That aside, it is relatively easy to access email, news and other network-determined services from the phone, although with the absence of predictive-text, writing emails is not favourable. The large text message capacity is also a much used function of my 6210. Previous phones were limited to a SIM-only text message capacity. With the 6210, you don't have to worry about your inbox filling up while you sleep! The battery is not to be sneezed at either. If you charge it for the recommended 16 hours at first, you get a phone which is capable of remaining on standby for a long, long time. If, however, you decide to only charge for eight hours, like me, then battery performance will not be great. However, I'm still able to get 5 days on standby out of the phone, as well as making 2 hours of calls during that period. The voice dialling feature on this is more of a novelty than a useful function. It only records your voice once, so you have to voice-dial in the voice you recorded in. Sounds daft, but many people, myself included, put voices on for the record, and can never seem to make the voice tags work after that. Overall, though, I am very pleased with my purchase. Having previously owned an 8210, I can safely say these are better built, and
                        although slightly bigger, will last longer, and have many more useful features. If you can afford it, buy this phone. With the mobile internet ever expanding, it will be an excellent buy!

                          Nokia 6210 is in my opinion the best-looking Nokia mobile phone. It feels perfect in the palm of your hand, and all the buttons feel in the exact correct position. Even that little wheel on the side of the phone is in the perfect position for your index finger to roll over the top of it. The wheel is used to change the volume, but could have been put to better use by enabling it to scroll through the phone book, or maybe scroll through the lists of those annoying ring tones. The layout is nearly identical to all the Nokia phones that have stood before it; the only differences in the phone set-up are that you can use the wap feature. This enables you to access a mini version of the Internet. Or at least that is the best way I can describe it to everyone. *WAP = Wireless Application Protocol Mumbo Jumbo It looks quite good however you cannot change the covers on it, I think this is a good feature as you can make a common phone look personal, and it will be sorely missed from this phone. Maybe Nokia thought it would be a bit to common for this phone aimed at the business market A good phone book that is easy to access and look up various names. You can have voice dialling and a vibrating alert when someone calls you. This is a very good feature when you want to be more discrete! You can store 500 (YES 500 HUNDRED) names/numbers and search them via the inbuilt facility. Also you can display the phone book either by name or number. Also you can send the number as a business card to a friend. Overall I would say this is an excellent phone because: · Light weight and fits nice in to your palm · Looks good and has build quality to match · Good brand name behind it, you get a good warranty too · Loads of features, and perfect for the business user Why you shouldn’t buy this phone: · A bit large for some people · Cannot change the covers, so you are l
