Can't believe how long I just watched that for

The silly numptys making this couldn't add 3G.

What would you be using 3g for on this phone? Yes, it then excludes some networks (Three) but it's designed for low use and high battery life. 3g would severely affected battery with very little gain.

I can remember way back when, the day I got the wee snake to the full size of the screen. Took me about a year of trying. Miss them days. 3310 FTW
The new snake game is nowhere near as good as the old one, but I love this phone as a replacement for my old work one. It's tiny and the old predictive text took me way back, instantly got reacquainted with it.\x0d\x0a\x0d\x0aThe camera is crap but nobody is buying this for its camera.
Locked to Vodafone - should be mentioned in the title

Pretty overpriced for what it is, but if you wanna honest review, here you go:

I bought one directly from Vodafone on the release day and it wasn't locked.

I wouldn't bother with this. I use a V3 which is the best phone EVER!

Because 2G networks are slowly being allowed to slide into oblivion, cause network congestion and are being phased out. Your comment about 3G adversely affecting battery life was probably true back in 2006, it's more efficient than 2G these days, if only because you'll get better signal.

Bought one of these, it was fake - plenty of clips on youtube to comparing them - the seller wouldnt admit it was a fake - eventually got them to accept a return
Don't like the design of it, pity they couldn't have made it exactly the same case wise as the original.
This is pretty expensive for what it is

This is incorrect information. In the UK it's a far more likely scenario that 3G will be turned off well before 2G. The original estimates for 2G & 3G turn off was initially around 2020, however this is no not at all likely for 2G. The reason for this is primarily due to the volume of embedded devices that have been sold and are still in action. These devices are everywhere from nurse call systems, to alarms, to industrial machinery and even 'smart' meters. Although newer embedded devices such as cars have the option to update the majority of these systems sold in the early 2000's do not. Estimates in the industry for certain networks put the data around 2025. It is likely that 'EE' will be able to switch off 2G much earlier, however this is not the case for O2 and Vodafone.

Additional, 2G radios are still more power efficient than 3G (for standby time, making calls and sending SMS).
This is hot VS the RRP, especially if it turns out to be unlocked.

Not entirely sure why people are so keen to buy these though as they look pretty rubbish to me, but a £10 saving isn't to be sniffed at.

Is anyone able to confirm if these are unlocked and if you still need to £10 get credit with this?

Two reasons:
1) Nostalgia
2) Aversion to smart phones.

Both of these are why my dad wants one.

edit:

NVM, found out you do need to buy airtime, so actual price is £48.99 (unless Fast track trick works).

I'm convinced that Lenovo are going to re-release the V3. It was as iconic as the 3310 in the mid 2000s.
Wild goose chase time Good luck finding one.
Locked to Vodafone and if you're with them then it's fine otherwise no point in getting it as they can't be unlocked.
Its a shame this isn't on 3G because i was interested in getting one and before anyone starts moaning.

I have a Three pay as you go sim because they are the cheapest for sending texts (2p each) they also seem much better with the call costs then other networks, we don't all sit here paying £100s a year locked up in contracts some of us just want a phone, so its rather stupid that this rather nice looking and cheap phone is not available on the cheapest pay as you go network

I get that in principle I honestly do - like a bit of nostalgia myself - but my overriding opinion of this is that it neither looks like a 3310 nor acts like a 3310. They shouldn't have put a camera in it as this is an unnecessary upgrade for a phone that's supposed to look like its original and ruins the back of it, yet they only put 2G bands in it, which restricts its ability to get coverage in areas that have 3G and no 2G - this would have been an actual useful upgrade on the model.

Basically I don't think for the money it is either a very good tribute to the original model nor does it make up for it by offering features above and beyond £20 dumbphones which also don't look like the 3310.

For those that want it though, fair play. Not pouring scorn on them I'm just a little disappointed with this attempt from HMD as I think they could have done a better job and made some better decisions.

3G would have made this far more useful as an emergency phone as there are areas where you can't get 2G (believe it or not) but where there are 3G transmitters. It would have made almost no difference to battery life these days. It's a bit baffling that they added an utterly rubbish camera - something the 3310 is certainly not known for - yet didn't think to add bandwidth upgrades under the hood. I'm not even sure what they expect people to do with these rubbish pictures once they've taken them anyway. MMS at 40p a pop?

Not necessarily locked to Vodafone judging by the comment earlier from someone who bought direct from Vodafone and found it to be unlocked.
I've successfully unlocked payg phones from vodafone a month after a purchase. Just make sure you also use the free SIM card they usually provide. You have to wait 30 days before making a request.

They allow 3 unlock requests a year.

The name's the biggest issue I have with it.

I wish they called it the 3310e or something because now it makes research/discussions more annoying, plus it fits old school Nokia naming schemes. To me they're just abusing the name to sell a phone few would otherwise care about.

Same goes for anything, if you have to put a date at the end to distinguish it then it's a bad name.

I think we have to put this device in context:

What the NES Classic Edition teaches us is that at the moment there is a buzz for nostalgia. HMD have bought the Nokia brand and some of their patents and workforce and want to remind people of the brand. The 3310 was their first major attempt to do this, and to revive the brand for those who were teenagers and beyond when the 3310 came out, and for those who went on to become Nokia fanboys and enjoy devices like the N95. For those people the 3310 could have looked like a potato with '3310' on the box and a Nokia logo on it and they would pay £50 for it. I know a fair few people who are buying or who have bought this phone, even though they will never use it - though they convince themselves they will.

I used to be a fan of Nokia but I moved on long before they sank, so I perhaps can take this device on board with a little more cynicism than some...or maybe I'm just a grumpy old old.

Either way this is a device littered with anomalies and which doesn't look as much like the 3310 as it should be. I wonder if the design team actually ever owned one. The ideal 3310e (as you described it) would be as follows:

The same size and pretty much the same design as the old 3310, with a resultant massive battery due to the shrunken innards.

A transflective screen of the same size as the original, albeit colourful and much higher res

No camera - this is a dumbphone after all

All major world bands to increase the flexibility of the phone and make it at the very least an unbeatable 'glove box phone.

Lots of bright colours - much like this model.

It didn't really need much else. The thing that stops me spending £50 on this is not that I'm tight or that I don't think the tech is adequate; it's that no amount of convincing can make me think of this as a 3310 - it just feels like a cynical money grab, and for the first time ever I feel that a cheap knock-off from eBay actually might be at least as good as the original device.
V3 me
Rehash.
Thinking about upgrading my 6310i, might go for this one
Can anyone please recommend a good smartphone sim free for around the £50-60 marks? Looked at Amazon and its coming up with this one below which has been picking up bad reviews lately

amazon.co.uk/Mob…one

Or should I buy a second hand Apple 5C/5S? I know the latter will stretch the budget to around £80 for a used one.

Can anyone please advise?
Err isn't this a non smart phone thread!
