A little old now but great when it was new
Member Name: Trengot
Advantages: Camera, personalizable, cheap
Disadvantages: Very dated compared to newer phones, did start to fall apart after a long time
I bought this phone a long while back when my old 3310 finally died (those things were indestructible). I was looking for a small phone and at the time camera phones were fairly new and I fell into the trap of wanting one then rather than waiting until they were worth it and actually took pictures worth keeping.
It did have a camera but the images that it took were low resolution VGA and weren't really that great I had was that I had no way of getting the photos off the phone. When I bought it it didn't come with the data cable and was therefore a little pointless as even a very basic camera.
The phone quality was very good and lasted five or six years of abuse, although towards the end there were a few problems that came up. One of the first things to cause a major problem was that the speaker started dying and turned really quiet so that it was impossible to hear the person you were talking to if there was any other noise in the area. Also a couple of the keys stopped working well and needed to be pressed two or three times for them to actually do anything.
The phone had enough memory to store about 150 text messages (inbox+sent) and could send and receive pictures messages (MMS).
One good thing about the phone was its ability to be personalized to make it different from the rest. There is (or was anyway) a huge range of different fascias available to change colours and styles and applications on the phone could be downloaded.
As phones go it was one of the best of its time, and while it is a bit dated now and has been superseded by other technology, it was a good phone and lasted me well.
Summary: A good phone for its time and one that lasted me well
