Pushing a button 3 or 4 times before I get the correct letter? I don't think so, thank you very much... :p

My wife taught her 3310 a lot of Afrikaans words. That, and predictive text made it easy for her to type out SMSes.

Pity on the networks planning to discontinue 2G...

If it had Whatsapp... *sigh*

ah well. Maybe the 3310.2 (or 3311) will have it...

Will have to wait and see.

Not true, fake news. 2G will stay. More likely 3G will be phased out earlier.

A 2G phone with a 2mp camera... in 2017? :wtf:

There are plenty of better spec phones available at lower prices so... why?

With a standby time of a bazillion hours? :D
I don't think it's meant to compete with "camera" phones.
I think it's just supposed to be a "phone-phone" -and you're probably also paying a little extra for the nostalgia.

So what's next? A resurgence in snail mail and faxes... you know, for nostalgia's sake? :p
