None Better

 

Apr 18, 2003 by Philadopolis

I agree with the last post. I have the opportunity to test a number of different phones, and I keep coming back to my Nokia 8290. It's like an old friend. Sure, there are a few improvements that have been made in phones since the release of the 8290, but for whatever reason, they come at the expense of other -- better -- menu hierarchies and shortcuts that the 8290 seemed to have perfected. I thought that the 8390 would be an even better version of the 8290. It's not.

One warning: Make sure you get the display defect taken care of under warranty before it's too late.

8290

I have had my 8290 for approximately 1.5 months now and have found it very user friendly. It has 8 one touch voice activated numbers which is a nice feature. It also has 8 personal ring options that can be downloaded from your service provider, which in my circumstance is Voicestream. I so far have nothing but compliments for this phone.

There's a reason this phone is discontinued

Nokia is my favorite cellphone maker, but they really dropped the ball on this phone. Only one thing screwed them. THE SCREEN! I must have done 4 handset exchanges before ending up with a red model, which I liked. After a few months the screen went bonkers again, then blank. I finally had to give up and go to a 3390 (very solid phone), but I'll always miss the size of this phone.
At least there's the 3100. I just bought one a week ago for my girlfriend and now I want one for myself.
