Nokia 6310 Phone with No Features

Want a simple Cellphone ?

Recently shopping for a cell phone I walked into a shop asking for a simple pre-paid phone which only did calls and text - I was directed to another shop - this shop sold cellphones not cheap simple things that only did voice calls and SMS! What I really wanted was something called a:

Nokia 6310

The Nokia 6310 was launched in 2001 and withdrawn 3 years later, but today re-furbished 6310's are selling well on EBay to buyers who want a simple reliable phone. Although only released in 2001 it is now a considered by some to be a modern design classic. Initially demand came from owners of certain models of Mercedes who really liked the car kit which came installed with the vehicle and didn't want to replace it.

Top Reasons to buy a Nokia 6310

  • ease of use - decent sized buttons and not too many of them! it's a phone and it has a simple to use phone book
  • it also does SMS and picture messaging
  • it has bluetooth to sync your phone book
  • you can surf the web using GPRS - but the screen is tiny
  • Nokia has excellent battery life because of the simple functions - oh and it has a calculator if you want to get fancy!

      You're very right AboutTheHome - I have problems with some phones keypads and have normal sized fingers - how do older people with arthritis or loss of feeling in their finger tips cope!

      I have a Nokia N95 - Waaayyyy too much for what I need and waaayyyy to complicated but the camera's ok.

      My wife needs something a child could use. Oh no a child is way too advanced!!!

      I suspect a lot of (older?)people would be happier with a basic phone.
