Recently I was forced to, yet again, go back to my trusty old Nokia 6310i, having destroyed my previous two phones in water related incidents, one which was extremely humorous, but that's a different story.
Now I am reminded of the brilliance of this mobile, because it does what every good phone should do. Makes calls. That's it's primary feature. Sure it doesn't have some of the more recent applications that other newer trendier phones have, but it's entirely fit for purpose. On top of this it is also the mos robust phone I have ever come across. The amount of bumps and knocks this phone can take, and still function perfectly, is ridiculous.
The interface is fairly simple, with a simple menu system incorporated. The buttons are big enough to still be pushed with ease. It's quite chunky compared to mobile phones nowadays but it's not so big that it doesn't easily slip into your pocket.
I also have last pro for this phone, and that's the fact that it has the best mobile phone game that ever existed. Snake 2. With this phone in pocket, no one can dare compare insult it ad compare there own newer phone to it, as I only have to say; "Oh I fancy playing a bit of Snake 2" before they shut up. (Not including iPhone owners :P)
The Nokia seems a dinaosoaur in todays world of phones, butnin business, its still one the best.
It does just waht you need it too, without all the fancy gizmos you are never going to use. I have had one for over 6 years, and it has never let me down. The battery life is second to nonw, and with the optional large battery pack, it can last a week or more between charges.
The phone menu is simple to navigate, and has functions such as calulator, messaging and the age old game of Snake.
GPRS seems outdated, but still works well, as does the wap function.
The buttons are big and precise, making dialing and text messages easy. The phone is sleek and fits nicely into a pocket, and the screen is big enough to be clearly seen. This is a real work horse of a phone and will still be going strong when all the iphones are in phone heaven.
These can be bought for peanuts, and I have bought a few over the years as backups, but in all truth, have never needed them, as the original still works flawlessly.
Love this phone, easy to use for a technophobe. Only trouble I have had is that the on/ off button has got jammed and useless but the rest functions well and I switch off by disconnecting the battery (which has long life).Hope it never goes out of production, the latest models are too faddy for me and many of my business contacts.
This is a business phone as opposed to a fun phone. It can be used for e-mail and the phone itself has a memory, rather than saving everything onto the simcard. If your simcard goes down, you don't lose any information. This phone has a few games and many ringtones. It uses a standard Nokia charger/car charger and has long battery life. It is a very robust phone which can withstand being dropped regularly! It has a browser which allows limited internet access.
I've had my phone now for over two years and it has been trouble free and a pleasure to use, and I have not had to worry too much about being careful with it as it is very robust. It's slightly larger than most phones but is still pocket size, but has the advantage of being much easier to find than the very small phones that are coming out now.
Theres a reason why youll see business men and women the world over carrying this handset
.when it comes to acting as a phone above anything else, its the best at its job. This workhorse has a huge memory and battery life and does everything you need (like email and Bluetooth) without all the bells and whistles. An extremely solid performer.

My Nokia 6310i has proven to be an excellent and reliable phone. I have now been using mine daily for over 18 Months. >> The Use and Abuse << It travels with me daily back and forth with me to work, and is plugged into it?s mains charger whilst at work. Calls are made and text messages sent daily Once or twice weekly it is plugged into a car hands free kit whilst I am travelling on business General usage in evenings and over weekends for calls and text messaging. It has accompanied me on a couple of trips abroad I have dropped onto concrete more than once! ? And it has survived OK. >> The Phone Itself << The phone measures 13cm by 4.5cm and is just under 2cm thick. It fits comfortably into a suit inside pocket or trouser pocket. It is not so comfortable if wearing tight jeans ? but isn?t that to be expected! They say that size isn?t everything, but as with this phone, I think it helps! The phone is relatively large compared to the very latest phones, but I think this is actually helpful. The phone fits comfortably into the hand and the keys are a sensible size to be pressed by real size pinkies. The phone weighs approximately 110g, which feels quite light to me, but again this is probably heavy compared to some of the latest very small phones. >> Price << It is difficult to advise directly on price, as there are numerous deals available, which keep changing. If you?re signing up for a contract a lot of companies will sell the phone very cheap (£30 - £50). If you want to just purchase the phone then someone like www.shopgenie.co.uk will sell it for approximately £190. Prices on E-Bay can be much lower than this >> Features << The main feature for me with this phone is the battery life. On several occasions I have been away for periods of over a week, without a charger, and made numerous calls and texts and
the battery has kept on going. The quoted standby by time is 17days It has a clock and an alarm clock, which is easy to use, and loud ? ideal for actually waking you up There are a number of games on phone (Snake II, Space Impact, Bumper and Racket) It is Bluetooth enabled, although I have not really used this It is Tri-band (not sure entirely what this means ? but I know the phone works fine across Europe) It has WAP which I find useful for getting football results It also has voice commands for selecting stored numbers but I have not really tried this out The display is bright, clear and shows up to six rows of text There are various other features available through the different options on the phone and more information is available from the Nokia website (www.nokia.com) >> Summary << Overall I am really impressed by the phone, its battery life and reliability. The only downside I can think of is it doesn?t take pictures ? but I?ve managed to live without that! Thank you for reading this review. P.
I recently upgraded my ever reliable 6210 to the all singing, all dancing 6310 and at first view there seems little difference other than a nice silver case. The devil is of course in the detail (not that I have ever read the manual). So, good or bad? Good I would say. It works exactly the same way as every other Nokia phone I have owned so no need to re-learn the user interface. My address book copied via IR with no problems and it fit's into the Car kit perfectly. Even the old charger still works. The biggest issue is just an annoyance. When you plug the phone into the car kit, it does not switch off when the ignition key is removed. Not a major problem but if you did leave your phone in the car kit and left it there, it may have a drain on the car battery, assuming some local youth doesn't help themselves to the phone first. I have made use of the GPRS data facilites via a PC Bluetooth dongle and it works well both here and abroad although the network has yet to be extended to Moscow which was a problem recently. The software to drive the GPRS on my notebook installed fairlty easily although the firewall setup was more complex than I would like. The WAP functionality is as much a waste of space as it has always been but you can't blame that on Nokia. Battery life is a significant improvement on the 6210 and I have yet to have any low battery warnings even with heavy use daily. Overall a good business phone. Nothing flash, just the functions you need to travel the world, make phone calls and download your mail.
This is by far the best phone I have used. It is provided as part of my corporate mobile contract and is the standard phone supplied. Everything about the phone is of supreme quality, the layout and size of the keypad is perfect, it's physically quite small, weighs virtually nothing and easily fits in an inside jacket pocket without looking like you are carrying a pistol. The battery always seems to go on and on I have left it several days with quite heavy usage and still not had to re-charge it - quite incredible! The menus - like most other Nokias - are easy to follow although it is sometimes a bit of work to find a feature you don't use very often. For example the alarm clock is found under the settings menu rather than a clock menu on other phones. I don't currently use the bluetooth capabilities but have colleagues who do and are very happy with functionality. The only annoyance is that the decent earpiece kit I bought for my prevous Nokia doesn't have the same plug as that required for the 6310 so I have had to buy a rather fragile alternative as I couldn't find an equivalent replacement.
I recently upgraded from a 6210. I was very happy with tis 'phone but my service provider offerred a free upgrade. I chose this 'phone over a T68i despite the fact that the latter has MMS capability and a colour screen. I feel I made the right choce. The 6310i is an excellent 'phone for those who want clear communications, long battery life, good rudimentary organiser facilities (a filofax or PDA does the job better than any 'phone can do) and reliability. It is not a phone for those looking for something which will be a nice gadget to play with in addition to its communication abilities. The voice recognition is excellent and I feel that the purchase of a bluetooth headset which allows this to be used will complement the 'phone well. I am looking at the purchase of one of these. Overall - Choose this mobile for excellent communication with others. Do not consider it if you are looking for something to impress your friends at a social function.
The 6310i is an incredibly good phone. Its not a toy phone, its not made by Fisher Price or Tomy, its a real, sturdy business phone from the ever popular Nokia 6-series range. The phone itself has a supreme set of functions including automatic switching tri-band functionality, bluetooth, GPRS, java games and....... an alarm clock. Yeeeehooooo It does lack certain modern features like camera, polyphonic ringtones or video phone.. But looking at it objectivly, do you need a camera on your phone? How would you feel if your on a bus journey sitting next to a lady you'd quite like to get to know better - and bang, in a flash, the latest rendition of the funky hip-hop style Eastenders theme jumps out on you. My advice, get off at the next stop. As always - the menu system is second to no other, it is superb. I've used most other makes of handset (Motorola, Ericsson, Samsung, Sony, Sagem etc) and no others even come close to the ease of use and just completly functionality. As for battery life, I only need to charge mine every 4-6 days and it use it several times daily and its never swtiched off The phone can store 500 numbers on it which is more than enough for the average social deviant. It has predictive text, it comes with the Nokia 6310i special software - but not with a data cable, this is purchased seperatly. I've used the phone as a modem connected to my laptop and it works really well, much more reliable than previous Nokia models. Overall this phone is good, I like it a lot. If I wanted a spanky super dooper toy-phone I'd go out and pay £400 and get the latest model, but if your looking for a lightweight, reliable, useful and actually quite nice looking phone (you can choose between Silver or Gold) then go for this baby, its got a good year left in it yet before it's shelved only to be replaced with the afformentioned Fisher Price alternative with lots of flashing lights and groovy sounds.
