The 3310 shot Nokia to the front of the mobile phone race when it was released in 2000. A massive hit with consumers of all ages, it went on to sell 126 million units, and is fondly remembered for its toughness and straightforward interface.
Standout features included the addictive Snake II, custom ringtones, interchangeable covers - back and front - and the ability to send SMS messages three times the length of a then standard text. Although phones are more advanced today, they are rarely as reliable as this old workhorse.
