I still have this phone even though it is a fairly old design...it serves as my back up phone nowadays as obvisouly even the cheaper pay as you go phones like the Sony Ericcson K530i blow this phone out of the water. Nevertheless in its day this phone was pretty good and it lasted far longer then most as people main mobile set, as a sign of its quality. Unfortuntely you cant buy this phone on contract or even pay as you go much anymore, but you cna pick them up cheaply from amazon or 2nd hand phone shops.
This was my first nokia phone and one thing that strikes you about nokias is their ease of use...by this i mean the controls and menu pages are easy to navigate, you find that you get used to them very easily and as muscle memory take sover you are flicking between menus in no time. The sam can be said about nokia`s today. I certainly found my sony-E that much harder in this respect.
The other thing you notice is that this phone, despite it farily good range of feature, is very light. This is attributable to the wholly plastic build, which when you take the facia of seems cheap and nasty. But once it slots together it is still a very robust phone. I have dropped mine several imes and other then a blemish on the screen, there is no direct damage. Because it is lightweight it can hang in yourpocket and doesnt feel like a brick...ive found that where most old phones were heavy because the build was simple, phones got lighter about 6-7 yrs ago and now because of extra functions are gettign heavier again, if alittle more stylish. The other aspect is the battery, this is very light, but I think it has a reduced power supply. My phone is old so its hard o tell how good it was at the start. Nevertheless the battery life is still rather good as the features are simple and dont run concurently, sucking unnecessary power.
You can also take this phone apart , quite literally to fix something or to clean the inside of the crystal screen, which unfortunately gets dust inside it too often. At the time you may remember walking around makets seeing man multicoloured facia`s on the stalls, and they are very easy to install, a 5 yr old could do it.
Their is a simple colour screen, but I find that as well as the dust issue, in bright outdoor light it can be hard to see the crystal screen. The sound quality is good, not great mind, and you ca always put it on loudspeaker if necessary, which is quite loud. There is the standard 0-9 daller buttons, with the alphabet on tem for texting, there is also a 4 way scroller menu at the top of these that you use to navigate. There is an on-off menu at the top of the phone but I find it slightly too small for my fingers to use. The keypad lights up well too, affording the user good vision of numbers in the dark, you can change the colours of the pad or even the lights if you wnat....this phone is the Japanese modification car for mobile phones !
It has all the usuals, multiple ring tones to select, wallpapers in built and games, (there is a very addictive ball spinning games hat took up most of my time)- all of which can be downloaded to update. To do this you will need to buy a seperate cable to plug into the PC, where ou can mange all your information. It has notes, calender and appointment reminder menu, so you can use this as you mini filofax ! It also has a FM radio, which again is easy to tune in, but the reception is iffy at best and you can only listen to it via the nokia headphones that you get, wich with one ear piece is iffy, but I believe that you can buy a two earpiece set now. The memory is big enough to sore simple VBA camera photos, and around 50 numbers, of which you can assign multiple numbers- i.e work, home, office etc ...to one contact. The alarm clock is sufficiently loud and the phone has a rumble pack just in case you need the extra help in getting up.
Overall a simple but effective package for anyone to use as a back up phone
Ive had this phone for 18months now and im still really happy with it. its the perfect size to have in your pocket or even put in a small bag! the battery is long lasting, i never switch my phone off and i only charge it up every 5/6 days. The great thing about this phone is the fact that it has radio. it saves a lot of space, meaning when im going somewhere i dont need to take my portable cd player with me, which is obviously bulky compared to my phone! one problem with this phone is the lack of a camera. i bought the camera attachment but much to my disappointment the pictures were not at all clear, therefore i havent used it very much.
the phone has the usual nokia layout, with the easy to navigate menu. the different headings being:
call register (missed calls, received calls etc)
profiles (silent, loud, vibrate)
alarm clock (which is very useful!)
gallery (images and sounds!)
games (which i thought were quite disappointing)
along with your usual phonebook
ihave found the internet very useful on this phone, especially when i have been going on weekend trips to visit my boyfriend on the train. Travelling on my own at first was quite a big thing, and if the trains were delayed it could panic me. it was good to know that i could go onto my phone and look up the next train, without having to worry about finding someone to ask!
I can store around 150 messages on my phone which is useful as i have a habit of saving them, and i stil lhave the problem of deciding which ones to delete! I can also store and send media messages, although i can only store around 3/4, however i dont tend to send them or even receive them!
the calendar i find very useful in storing birthdays and little reminders for myself, and i like the fact that you can set the same reminder for everyday without having to type it in everyday!
at first i thought the layout of the phone would be annoying in terms of the keypad, but it doesnt take long to get used to, and you can text away til your hearts content!
Overall the positives outweigh the negatives and i havent come across a phone to replace the nokia 7210 yet!
The nokia 7210 has a new keypad layout that makes the phone very attractive to look at, however this new layout proved easy to use.
It has a very light weight to it and is not that much bigger in size then the nokia 3300.
It has a new scroll capacity which allows the user to access the phone book, calendar and new message screen, without having to go throughout the menu screen.
It has been advanced with a gallery menu, game, applications and extras menu. Games and applications allow the user to save games. however once the memory has been used you will have to begin deleting games. The memory capacity is large around about 100 text messages can be saved and sent text messages too. Meaning you can see what you have written so you can never forget what you were talking about.
The colour screen on this phone is very clear and easy to be seen.
The sound quality is perfect and the GPRS connection is quick and easy to use. I would give this phone 10 out of 10. I really would advise this phone to nokia users and anyone who has never used a nokia, as it is a very good phone.
I've had my 7210 now for just short of a year - having owned several Nokias before. If you already own a Nokia, the controls and menus will be familiar to you, so you can get started very quickly. If you're new to Nokias, the menu system is very easy to use, so it shouldn't take you long to find your feet. I would only really ever consider Nokia phones now as once you've used one, you can use any. And they are very user friendly. I upgraded free as part of my contract package, so cost of phone didn't enter into it. I've found all Nokia phones to be well built and robust (The Nokia 3510 bounced out of my bedroom window once and onto the drive and was still working !) - Although the 7210 doesn't feel quite as solid. Infact my first 7210 had to go back as there was a problem with the inbuilt software, but this was all sorted within a few days, and I had a new replacement. As I said, using the phone is real easy - especially if you go through the instructions step by step. There are some functions I don't use (WAP) as I'm not bothered for using my phone for that. The phone has a large memory, so plenty of phone numbers can be stored, as can text messages (sent & received). One useful feature is the ability to tag several different phones numbers to one contact in your phone book - so you can have a persons mobile, house, office and fax number all stored. You can even put addresses, e-mails address and notes against contacts too. The alarm clock feature is also very useful - I use it to wake me up every morning. And a calculator function never goes a miss. There's also a handy calendar function; here you can enter appointments / notes / reminders and set reminder alarms to let you know in advance of any entries you've made. And you need never miss a birthday again as you can enter birthday reminders too. - It's like having a mini PDA with you, and infact I've started using it
more than my pda for quick entries are I generally have the phone on me at all times. I don't use the games much - I don't think the inbuilt games are up to much, but if that's you're thing, you can always download JAVA games. The same goes for rings tones / wallpapers - although I'm happy with the inbuilt choices. There's a neat radio function, so, using the headphones, you can tune into your favourite radio station (using the headphones as the Ariel) - reception is good, especially if you're not moving. Connection to the phone is with the 'pop port' on the bottom - It seems a bit flimsy, and I'm always wary of breaking the pins whilst connecting the headphones (also used for hands free). Although to be fair, I haven't had any problems with it yet - it just doesn't seem as robust as the push in charging socket (which is the familiar Nokia size, so you're old charges / in car adaptors still fit). Using the pop port, you can also connect to a PC (via a data cable). here you can edit phone data / settings and backup your phone book and calendar etc. You can also import files for wallpaper etc. - The Nokia cable is expensive, but there are loads of other cable available - check out e-bay. You can use the cable with Nokias free downloadable software - PC Suite which enables you to synch the phone calendar with various PC versions. But you'll need to make sure the cable is DKU-5 to do this (A lot of cables aren't, so you won't be ale to run PC suite, although you can still do other more basic things) The phone is also Tri-band, which means you can use it in USA; This was one of my main reasons for choosing this phone. And it works ! - although on my last trip, I did notice I couldn't get reception in some places where the locals still could. The phone is nice and compact and has a good battery life - I leave mine switched on all the time, and get 5
days usage from it (although it's not heavy usage). It's also light, so it can sit in your top pocket without it dragging you down. The colour screen is OK, but can be a little difficult to see in bright light conditions, and because the covers are changeable, it seems to let a lot of dust in which gets stuck behind the screen, so you have to keep taking the cover off to clean the inside. Sound quality is very good, and talking and listening have good clarity. All in all, a very good, capable phone - should meet most of your requirements.
What a phone this is! I first saw it on the side of a red bus in London about a year and a half ago and knew from that moment that this was something I had to have ? a landmark in linking of function and fashion. The first thing which caught my eye on this advert was the stylish colours and smooth contours of this model. And having bought it that Christmas, it is still something which I regard very highly. This phone LOOKS GREAT and feels great to operate. There are a whole host of accessories available, from cool fascias to attachable cameras. This phone has everything available that you could want. Also, yet again Nokia has demonstrated how its programming rises above all other makers. The simplicity of this phone is unrivalled and with the four-way button it couldn?t be any easier to write messages or set an appointment in your diary. Talking of diary ? there are a whole host of features and functions which give this phone even better performance. Whether it is the FM radio or loudspeaker function, this phone has pretty much everything you could need. As well as this there is a great range of java games and polyphonic ring tones to download from the internet (that?s if you need to. This phone comes with quite a selection of both). Another advantage is that you can purchase a connectivity cable and syncnorize the phone with your computer, including transfer your own pictures to the phone ? which I a brilliant facility!! However, as with everything there are down sides. The keys are very small and fiddly until you get a bit more used to them, and it can be quite tiresome when your trying to write out a long message or email. The accessories I spoke of before are very highly priced ? a genuine Nokia cover can set you back about £25 ? which is an exorbitant price considering what you have to pay for it in the first place. Finally, this model does not have an inbuilt camera. Although you can
buy a separate camera headset which plugs into the bottom, I found this an immense hassle and gave up after a while. In general I would recommend this mobile to anyone, but if you?ve got the cash to spare I would have a look at the next model up ? the 7250, which is just as stylish and useful, but with the built in camera. Overall a great mobile!!
Although the 7210 has been available for some time now, it is still the phone of choice for many and with prices falling on pay as you go it is becoming even more widely available. I?ve had my 7210 now for a year and although I am being sent an upgrade, I am still very pleased with it and would recommend it to anyone. FEATURES: The 7210 has all the standard features you would expect from a Nokia handset including text messaging (with t9 predictive text input), phone book, games and a multitude of tedious and annoying ring tones (well I think they?re annoying!). However, there are some additions to the feature list that set this phone apart from previous Nokia handsets and the competition. The addition of a colour screen allows for a greater variety of games to be downloaded with some stunning graphics (for a phone that is). The colour screen also allows for backgrounds to be applied to the phone, much like the wallpapers that appear on most computers. A set of generic wallpapers come pre-loaded such as a sunset and sunflower, but others can be downloaded via the phone?s wap Internet browser. These will most likely incur a charge depending on where you download them from but if you look around you can always find a few free samples. The addition of polyphonic ring tones means you can embarrass yourself even further by setting the most ridiculous ring tone (I suggest the a-team) to go off when your on a packed train and everyone can hear you but you cant stop it because you cant find your phone to turn it off. Like some previous Nokia phone?s, the 7210 comes with an FM radio and a headset for you to listen to it on. You can have up to 20 preset stations and it will auto-scan the frequencies to find stations. However, I have found that the scanner very rarely picks up stations unless you are very near to the broadcast centre. The radio can also be listened to via the phone itself (loudspeaker option). This means that everyon
e else in the room can listen to the radio and not just you (ideal if you?re going on a short break). Nokia have done themselves proud with the addition of a hands free option for the 7210, instead of having to buy an expensive hands free speaker for your car or office, simply select loudspeaker from the menu when you make or receive a call and you can now talk hands free! In the connectivity menu you will find infrared connections and GPRS. The infrared connection is particularly useful if you want to backup your data by connecting with am IR enabled laptop or computer port. I?m not sure what the GPRS option allows you to do so please enlighten me. DESIGN: The 7210 will not appeal to everyone in this department as it has a very colourful and distinct design to it. However, if you?re bored of the standard black and grey slabs of plastic that are most other handsets then maybe you should consider this handset. The express on covers allow for some customisation but most should be happy with the default green cover that comes in the box. At first glance the keypad appears to be difficult to use due to the orientation of some of the keys. However, after a few minutes you will find that they keys are very easy to use, especially for text. The addition of a four-way scroll button, rather than a standard two-way, Up and down, make navigation very efficient. There are also shortcuts with this button that allow one touch access to a new text message or your organiser (a feature that a forgot to mention? but its fairly self explanatory). The buttons provide very good feedback so you know if a button has been pressed properly or not. I think this is mainly down to the fact that the buttons themselves are made of hard plastic rather than rubber. The 7210 weighs 86g. PERFORMANCE: The phone responds almost instantaneously to button and menu commands making its use very time efficient. It has a stand by time of nearl
y 300 hours and around 300 minutes talk time. I have found that these numbers are slightly exaggerates, but the charge time of just over an hour surely make up for this. As far as reception goes I have had few problems, though this is more due to the network than the handset. VALUE FOR MONEY: The 7210 is currently available free on most contracts but its price is coming down on some pay as you go packages. However, if you intend to buy some of the accessories available you may be in for a shock. The camera attachment is currently £50 in most stores and chargers and batteries are also very highly priced. CONCLUSION: Firstly I apologise for not commenting on everything this model has to offer but I hope I have covered the important points. If you want a stylish, feature packed and lightweight phone, the 7210 is for you. Its compact design and stylish looks only go to complement its features and performance?. A pat on the back for Nokia.

Anyway, i decided to go for it and have to say really glad that i did. Firstly, the contemporary keypad is fab and you soon get used to texting with it, no prob. The graphics are crystal clear when compared to the 3410i and i have never seen the screen flicker as mentioned by other reviewers. The size of the phone is another plus as it is quite small but not too small. I have never had a problem turning it off or on as mentioned in another review so dont let that put you off. The radio is really cool with brill sound, the only thing i can say negative is that the radio cannot be listened to on speaker without having the headset plugged in but to be honest the stereo sound is so good when listened to through headset that can't see that you would listen to it on speaker anyway. What else can i say, well i am really impressed with the phone and i don't think the keys look tacky. You can also buy new keypads and covers now (cheap on ebay) so you can also customise it to suit your own style. I am getting a camera soon so that is another plus as it does media messaging. The polyphonic ringtones sound good to. So go for it is what i would say and i'm sure you won't regret it.
When I told my son that I was going on holiday for Christmas without him We struck a deal. He would 'let' me go on the condition that I phoned him on Christmas day from the beach. I checked and was told I would need a tri-band phone and a network such as 02 as vodafone told me they didnt have coverage for Jamaica. The phone seemed to be everything I ever wanted. Colour screen with a fairly high level of definition. Good quality polyphinic sound. Nice and compact, etc. However it did not seem to respond to well to 'hotter' climes, often resetting mid call and switching itself off on it's own. I found the same issues when i was in spain a few weeks ago aswell. I do not know if this is just my handset or an issue affecting all handsets of this model but I would say that if it is common to all of them that this is a massive oversight on the part of nokia when making a worldwide use handset. In the UK I have not had nearly so many problem with it. The new design keypad layout took a little while to adjust to but now I find it far easier to use than other nokia handsets. The casing is not all that resiliant and cracks easily. I liked the new games but was rather disapointed to discover that 'snake' is no longer in the list. I have downloaded a couple more games since then aswell. The radio feature is good although i have to say that it uses the headset as an antennae so you need it plugged in even to listen to the radio on loudspeaker.You can store up to twenty stations and label each of them within it's memory. It has a good reception and is easy to use. The organiser has loads of new features including repeat reminders such as birthdays, etc. I have not really used this feature much as I am not an organised person on the whole. As far as connectivity is concerned you can use a datacable or infra-red for using the built in modem capabilities (somethi
ng those of you who know me already know is important to me, see logomanager opinion). Using the infra-red I have already created my own ringtones and my own wallpapers and screensavers. The software to 'browse' your nokia 7210 is available as a free download from the official nokia site. If you are a real techie and would like to add new applications and/or games this is very easy to do and there are plenty of programs out there. The battery life seems very reasonable too although it took several full charge then discharge attempts to establish this. Also for people who like to use the net through their handset the 7210 has wap and java ability using gsmdata or gprs meaning you can choose a variety of packages from your service provider that most phoines before this one simply did not allow. As for the camera add on, I have tried one out but chosen to wait for a more refined camera to become available. Maybe I have been spoiled by the quality of my other 'toys' !!! I have been assured by another 7210 owner that the camera is good enough quality for his needs. On the whole a very good phone with room for a bit of improvement.
OK, well I am gonna be brutally honest with you from the start. I am a mobile phone fanatic! I use my phone for everything. You name it, I will use it. Whatever phone I have I will utilise it to the utmost capacity, therefore, I feel I am in an excellent position to review the performance of the Nokia 7210. Nokia are without doubt the kings of mobile manufacturers as far as I'm concerned. I have been loyal to them since I bought my first mobile phone about 3 years ago. One of their latest creations is the 7210. In my opinion, this phone is a quite superb piece of technology and dare I say it - a damn good phone! The first and of course most important aspect of this phone is that it's all in colour which I can assure you makes a huge difference. This was my main reason for choosing this phone and it certainly hasn't disappointed me in anyway on that score. The phone's display settings are awesome allowing you to alter the brightness and colour of the screen as well as the options to change your wallpaper or even turn off your operator logo! The ringtones are polyphonic and therefore have a superior sound quality. Any tone you wish for can be downloaded from a huge selection of wap sites accessible via the phone itself. This also applies to games, utility applications, and graphics. This phone has the capacity to store up to 300 names and numbers in it's phonebook and up to 250 on the SIM card. Once stored, you can then personalise your entries by using group titles, ringing tones and logos for specific groups of callers. The phone has additional features which include a fab radio (really loud & clear), a calendar & "to do list", excellent text message & e-mail sending facilities, a handsfree speaker option and a gallery enabling you to view ringtones and graphics in specific folders. I also love the fact that you can plug this phone in to your home PC with a USB cable an
d download all manner of things off the internet! I could go on and on all day about the advantages of this phone. I must however point out the one minor weakness of it and that is it's memory and storage capacity. Everything on the phone e.g. graphics, messages, games and ringtones etc are all part of the phone's shared memory. Therefore, if you have a lot of saved pictures, it cuts down the phone's ability to save anything else. If you're a games fan and have downloaded a couple of files off wap, storage of applications for example will decrease as a result. The only consolation is that storage space in total is good allowing for a fair number of files in each folder. Oh I almost forgot! The look of the phone itself is stylish to say the least and you can change the fascia to a whole range of colours and designs. This phone also has an MMS facility and an attachable camera unit which you can purchase separately from the usual suppliers. I would definitely recommend this phone to anyone without hesitation. If you're looking for a mobile that's got everything, look no further than the 7210. Buy it now and enjoy!

Having owned many Nokias, I know that they are extremely easy to use. Before my 7210, I had an Ericsson T68 with T68i software, and I adored the phone. I don't want to go into all the technical detail of this phone, as it can be found on nokia.com. I've had this phone for 5 months now, and I absolutely hate it! The screen always goes blurry, and i have to restart the phone. I have heard that it is due to inteference from the aerial, and is a problem on all the new colour nokias. I have never had a problem like this on the ericsson. The phone has no bluetooth - which i used quite a lot, and the camera attachment is absolutely appalling! The camera which clipped onto the t68 was brilliant, and the screen was used as a viewfinder. With the nokia, the camera is on a lead - which is very annoying to take around with you and the only way to see the picture is to actually take it. the viewfinder is very poor on the actual camera. there is also no voice dialling and recording which was a bit disappointing as most new nokias have thses features. the handsfree kit you get with the phone for the radio is also very bad - you have to clip it behind your neck! there are however a few things i like about the phone. if the screen is working correctly (hardly ever) then is is very good, the colours are bright (4096 colours i think - compared with 256 on t68) and the screen is very sharp, and the changeable covers. the call quality is also very good, but the build quality on the phone is very tacky. the ericsson feels solid and chunky. i also like the handsfree feature which plays the conversation out loud, and also playes the radio - but you still need the handsfree kit attached as an aerial - whcih is extremely annoying. Having used 7 nokias in my life, this one really has disappointed me. they have been market leaders for a long time, but i think this is soon to change if they don't start building better phones. i think i w
ill stick to sony ericsson for my next handset. hope this has helped anyone considering to buy this phone.
After having about 6 mobile phones in the last 4 years I decided to get yet another phone and opted for the Nokia 7210. I have had about 4 Nokia's ranging from the basic 5110 to 3310 and have found that they are deffinately the best phones as they are easily navigatable, reliable and incredibly durable, so the 7210 seemed like the only option for me (being an avid Nokia fan), first appearances of the phone tell you that it's got brains aswell as beauty. Although at first glance the keypad does look a little hard to use, after a couple of days I had no trouble using the phone and can honestly say that it is the best phone I have ever had the pleasure of being able to use, it's so easy to navigate with simple yet descriptive menus, enough features to keep you entertained for hours AND it has downloadable ringtones and graphics, and with the outstanding colour screen it compliments the graphics and games, especially with its almost 5000 color pixels it deffinately beats that of the Ericcsson T68 (in my opinion). Texting on this phone is brilliant as you can choose the text size, either small or big and you can fit up to 8 lines of text, with the ability to four way scroll it makes reading and correcting so much easier than that of any other phone I have used, and any message you send is kept in the Sent Items box. Another feature is creating your own folders EG a seperate "inbox" to keep private messages in, you simply move texts from your inbox to the folder you want them in. It's comfortable to hold and with the loudspeaker feature you don't aven have to hold it to take or make calls making it easier to take calls while on the PC etc leaving your hands free to type. The housings for the phone are also another one of it's many wonderful features as they come in a range of colors, all of which compliment the phone, I did initially have problems with finding places to get housings from but eventual
ly found a wide range on b3k.net. So, if you're thinking of getting a phone the Nokia 7210 is deffinately the perfect choice. The battery life is on average about 6 days standby time, except when I first got it as I couldn't put it down, the games are excellent and I couldn't stop playing Bounce so be prepared to charge it quite a bit in the first few days, I've had mine about 3 weeks now and wouldn't swap it for any other phone, and now I've stopped myself from playing on it so much I'm getting about 5 to 6 days out of the battery, even with the color screen. Although they don't come cheap you will deffinately not regret buying it, everyone should have a 7210.
