Excerpt: This phone was a good phone when it first came out, but now its just outdated. Pros: Easy to use Good reception Good battery life Practical Features Cons: Small screen NO color No camera NO web browsing Polyphonic Ring Tones *Ugly (my personal opinion*
Excerpt: very very good phone, lasted a very long time, i could probably still use it if i wanted to, ive had it for 3.5 years before i upgraded to the Nokia 3250. Very reliable. And its a good size, fits smug in the pocket.
Excerpt: Had this phone for several years now; entire family has one too. Just fyi: went through the trouble of switching out for a GSM Nokia 3200, touted as a great phone...well, 4 out of 4 us had many reception & service problems w/ATT's GSM network; unanimous..
Excerpt: You don't see a lot of long-term ownership reports on Phonescoop, but as my 8265 approaches 2 years, I thought I'd share how reliable this phone has been for me. I've gone through 5 headsets for this phone but the phone itself remains as solid as a rock.
Excerpt: PROs: excellent reception, durable(I've had for almost 2 years and dropped so many times and still works fine), changable covers CONs: cover scratches easily, talk time is only average (maybe 3 hours)
Excerpt: I've had the Nokia 8265 phone for just over a year now. It's my 4th Nokia phone - why is it they all seem to die/break just after the warranty expires? Overall, I have really enjoyed this phone but just after a year I'm picking up horrible (LOUD) static on just about all calls.
Excerpt: The 8265 is a nice small phone. It has features that most phone's have, however for the price you pay you're better getting either the 6360 Nokia for infrared and voice activated dialing or the 3560 Nokia for the color screen.
