Twenty years of the Nokia 3310

Nokia 3310 connected to test GSM network running with Osmocom

This year I started writing a series of blog posts about building GSM networks.

I already had a bunch of phones for testing available, but there’s only one phone I wanted for running the tests…

The Nokia 3310.

To my amazement, you can still buy refurbished Nokia 3310s (new case, battery and screen) for about $12 USD each.

So I bought one;

I learned that 1 September 2000 was when the 3310 was released, making it 20 years old this month. 20 years is also about the time between charges…

Happy Birthday 3310!

  1. Nokia still a good phone for doing tests!
    You can call me old fashion, but last year I’ve bought myself a
    Nokia 6720 classic to do some tests at work and just to have it again.
