    I loved my 3310 - I can see why people would want one of those again! :)

    A week? ONLY a week? I loved — still love — THIS GEM.




    My favourite Nokia phone was 6310i. A gem.

    I remember my first time. ;)

    A Nokia 1610 - it took a full sized (credit card) SIM, felt like it weighed a metric tonne and was butt ugly. But I loved it and I was one of the first of our group of friends to have a mobile. :D

    I had an 8210 at some point and that was amazing, smaller than a deck of ten fags and would go forever on one charge!

    God I feel old now.... :cry:

    I had a 3210 and loved it so much! My first phone was a Philips TCD128, and getting the 3210 felt like total luxury. I remember it did predictive text which was amazing! Awesome phone :)

    Can't wait to see the new incarnation of the 3310! :thumb:

    The first mobile phone — "car phone" back then — I've used was THIS beauty in the late seventies. Network: ARP.

    Drat. I'm old. :blush:

    I wondered if they would at least give it Bluetooth at re-launch to allow it to be used hands-free in a car without the old school earphone set you had to buy or car fit mount, but it seems they are relaunching it exactly the same as it used to be.

    Still, Awesome phone. I had one or two of them - with the customisable cases.... They were great!

    I owned my first mobile phone from early '96 and tbh I haven't a clue what it was, but it worked. It may have been a Nokia but not sure.

    A phone is a phone is a phone. I can make and receive calls? Yes? Sorted :D

    Stuff & nonsense :p

    There's quality and then there's chintz.

    If it wasn't for chintz Apple wouldn't exist...
