Older Nokia 3210 Mobile Phone For Sale

older nokia vintage handset There are lots of up to date mobile phones to choose from when it comes to the cheap basic phones of today. There’s no shortage of excellent budget priced Samsung’s and Nokia’s for sale starting from as cheap as £10 brand new. But step back in time and do a little Google searching and you will find that some of the absolute classic older mobile phones, like the Nokia 3210 (Pictured), 3310, 8210, and 8310 are still very much alive and kicking.

They are retro and nostalgic, but still very usable, even in today’s world of Smartphones. Some people prefer to use the older handsets over the more expensive models. The GSM Nokia 3210 is one of the most popular phones in cellular history, selling well over 150 Million units worldwide. This phone was one of the corner stones of the Nokia phone empire at the time. Today the 3210 is looked at as ever-so basic, but back in the day it was revolutionary.

Very long battery duration, no visible aerial (big breakthrough at the time), changeable phone (fascia) covers / cases, different keypads, unmatched durability for the time period, and the super popular Snake game, all in a small and relatively cheaply priced phone. It has a total of 3 games: Snake, Memory, and Rotation. Even today, the Nokia 3210 is considered as one of the best older phones to buy if you want something cheap and cheerful, with some old school character, to use for basic tasks.

If you want some green screen in your life, the 3210 can provide it for a low price. It has SMS (send texts), takes a mini-sim card, an alarm, and even has a Ringtone Composer. You can also download ringtones to the phone. Of course, this is a very basic phone so it doesn’t have many of the up to date features that many phones have today. It doesn’t have a loudspeaker, Bluetooth or a camera. And some models don’t even have built-in vibration.

But, if you’re after a cheap retro phone to use for calls and texts, do you really need all those things.. Probably not. For basic phone lovers, the 3210 is really all you need. Price wise, they are very cheap, costing between £7 - £15 on eBay.
