Summary: This phone is a very cheap phone. I kept getting error messages when I tried to use the messengers. Very small memory... It also doesn't hold up when getting run over, lol, that doesn't hurt the rating though. This phone might be okay for a 3 year old.
Excerpt: Not recommended; while I have enjoyed using Nokia phones for many years, this model version is sub-par and not recommended. You get what you pay for, and since I didn't pay anything for this phone, in hind sight, I shouldn't have been surprised. enuf said.
Great Potential But Nokia Removed Two MUST HAVES from this excellent phone

Summary: The 2610 had all the promise of a great upgrade that improved some of the issues I had with my GREAT 3120 and 3220 previous, and almost perfectly enjoyable, Nokia phones. But, alas they blew it with a couple of stupid and totally unnecessary killers. First the GREAT things did with the 2610.
Summary: This is a great, simple phone for those who just want a phone for making and receiving calls and text messages. Reception is quite good and battery life is great -- I go days and days and days between recharges.
A simple mobile phone, which is practical for the very basic use of calls and messages

Excerpt: I bought the Nokia 2610 when I simply needed a mobile for simple purposes to call and text others. As I already owned an iPod Touch that was capable for my music and other needs, I wasn't looking for any special features in the mobile. This phone only costs around £25.00 on pay as you go.
Get it if you need a coloured screen to make calls only.

Excerpt: Nokia is known for its quality and user friendly phones. The Finnish giant has something to offer for almost everyone. When I first saw Nokia's 2610, I really liked the design. It had a nice black and silver plastic finish and looked pretty neat.
Summary: I bought this phone for a relative of mine who is not that uptodate on phone technology. There are several problem with this phone. Firstly the back light aint that great its hard to make out the lettering on the keys. secondly the buttons require super human strength to press they are not easy.
Summary: I recently decided to change my wife's GSM from a Nokia 3330 to a Nokia 2610. The key criteria were simplicity and price. We also got more battery life and a smaller size and weight. But it uses the same charges as we had from previous models.
Summary: The 2610 is a basic phone that in theory should work great. Unfortunately it has a few minor flaws and one major flaw that makes the phone almost unusable. In normal day light it is impossible to view the screen.
Excerpt: When my last phone (Sony Ericsson - quite expensive at the time) finally decided it would pass on to the other side I needed a phone and the bank balance meant it had to be very cheap. So this was the cheapest I could find - and it shows! First off the good points: it does the bare minimum well.
