  • You just can't keep your finger (prints) off of it!

    Jul 13, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, comes with lots of accessories, full of features
    Cons: No WAP browser, expensive, attracts fingerprints

    Summary: At the MIT media lab, you encounter a bunch of neat toys, and it just so happens that we got a Nokia 8860 in our research group to "evaluate." That said, we love the phone, and here's why... One of the smallest phones in the ... read more

  • Beautiful phone, ahead of the pack at the time, dated and weak now

    Jan 26, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful and shiny. Small. Soft carrying case for polishing phone. Charging stand.
    Cons: Awful battery life and memory. Horrible reception. Scratched easily. Cheap construction.

    Summary: I got this phone in late 1999 and paid about $500 for it. I saw ads for it and had to have it immediately - I didn't care at all about how it worked, I just needed to have it. That was a bad call. I eventually upgraded to the 8890 which was much much ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks too Kool!
    Cons: Not much functionality, fragile, battery drains too quickly.

    Summary: I bought the Nokia 8860 about 2 years ago for about $499.99! Well, it got me the attention I deserved. Over time I realized that this phone is not for the serious cell phone user. The phone is plain feature-wise. The phone is like any other ... read more

  • Nokia 8860: Is it worth it?

    May 1, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Pretty slick design, small and light weight
    Cons: Definitely NOT scratch resistant.

    Summary: I first saw this phone in a magazine. Popular Science I believe it was. When it came out on the market, I bought one. I was ecstatic about it. It was pretty cool for awhile but then I started regretting buying this phone. Not only is it much heavier than ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful, Nice Features, Small
    Cons: Poor Reception, Poor Battery Life, Scratching

    Summary: I was sucked in by the allure. It was THEE phone to have. It fared well in reviews, it looked amazing, and it was supported by my service provider of choice. I wish I would have known I was buying a $500 toy, not a useful piece of equipment. The ... read more

    Pros: Looks, size and clarity.
    Cons: Short battery Life, short battery life and short battery life.

    Summary: First off, let me say that when I first laid my eyes on the Nokia 8860 my jaw dropped. It is an absolutely gorgeous looking phone. At the time I received this phone, I worked for an organization that had Nokia as one of it's sponsors so the phone was ... read more

  • Put a bag on it !

    Pros: Newer model?
    Cons: Poor reception. Slip away at any time.

    Summary: I live Fremont, CA. I just bought 2 phones: Nokia 8860 and Motorola V2397. The 8860 simply cannot make any calls inside my house (or in the backyard) unless you try to repeat 10 times at some special time, all because the reception is nearly 0 all the ... read more

  • Nice Phone, Nice Price Tag, What Else Is Next?

    Dec 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: chrome look, slide functions, weight, internal antenna
    Cons: reception, fingerprints

    Summary: The Nokia 8800 Series is the most top model of Nokia phone available on TDMA technology in US, which is why I chosen this model. The chrome design of this phone is really irresistible (can be used as a mirror if you forgot to bring one). At the time this ... read more

    Pros: style and amazingly small size
    Cons: everything else especially reception.

    Summary: Even though I liked my motorola startac time port,I really wanted have nokia 8860 because of its cool design and size. If you are not interested in its mobility at all , go ahead and get it. I should have listened my wife when I was about to ... read more

  • Nokia 8860 good overall phone

    Dec 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: cool look, hidden keypad
    Cons: price, fingerprints

    Summary: I bought the Nokia 8860 about 4 months ago. The price at the stores were outrageous. Anywhere from $500-$700. I was able to find it on the internet for $260. This is one reason I chose this phone. As for looks, I feel it is the sleekest looking ... read more

  • Lust all over this fine piece of Chrome!

    Dec 10, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light and compact, Sliding case for easy button access
    Cons: Sure to be noticed, so it easily gets annoying

    Summary: I shouldn't be saying much about this phone, since it got stolen about 3 months after I owned it. But during the period I owned it, I kept on receiving oooh's and aaah's from people all around. I bought this phone before AT&T Wireless ... read more

  • This Phone Defines Form over Function

    Nov 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's beautiful (but perhaps a bit passe now with the advent of the 8260)
    Cons: Too few features for what they are asking for.

    Summary: I originally purchased this phone for the same reason everyone else is captivated by it: the style. There's always something nice about being the first kid (or engineer, as the case may be) on the block to have such trendy toy and this phone definitely ... read more

  • Just an unpleasant illusion

    Oct 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Achingly beautiful
    Cons: Achingly unreliable

    Summary: Once again, I had to pay for my uncontrollable impulses to show off and get kisked in the butt in return. I admit it: I had to get this phone just by looks alone, because you have to admit that this Nokia looks as cool as a taser gun from Star Trek. ... read more

  • The price of a toy

    Oct 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Coolest phone, so far
    Cons: Not the most practical

    Summary: Every time I whip out my 8860 to take a call, everyone in the room oohs and aahs endlessly. This phone has a great deal of sex appeal. You feel like James Bond getting a secret message from "M" to go save the world (again) every time the ... read more

  • But I Like It!

    Oct 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: very cool looking, decent sound quality and reception, very nice accessory set included with the phone, better built in USA than 8200 series
    Cons: lame battery life, when people see it they think you're rich (i guess there's a + and - to that)

    Summary: As a member of the Internet generation, one thing that I cannot live without is my mobile phone. So you can imagine my dismay to find that my new house was too far from a Pacific Bell tower to get decent reception. Something had to be done, and fast. ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful and Light as a Feather
    Cons: Scratches, Poor Reception and Small Battery Life

    Summary: From the very first time that I saw this phone, I knew I had to have it. The fact that it is 4 oz. of chrome plated fashion drew me like a magnet. I was finally able to find a price that I could manage (just over $300) and I grabbed it packaged with a ... read more

    Pros: Slidepad, Clarity, no antenna, compact and light

    Pros: Sleek and shiny
    Cons: Ear piece and buttons take some time getting used to.

    Summary: While all of you who are griping about this phone and how expensive it is, I will sum my review up real fast. I picked mine up for $199.00 and it still came with all the same gadgets. If you are looking to buy this phone check this site out, ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Super Small, great look, games!!
    Cons: Price, Performance, Ergonomic issues.

    Summary: This is one of the best looking phones on the market. Generally, I hate the look of the Nokia phones currently on the market because their design is not appealing at all even though they are small and light. That is why I was very interested ... read more
