Nokia 5100

In general, the Nokia 5100 is quite good and reliable. Moreover, for those of you who have super-active activities, bringing the phone a little more secure from water, dust and even the possibility of falling from a table or your pants pocket. Cover it...

I bought this phone about 6 years ago. Then it was very expensive. Now you have sleek that look like sports cars and which younger generation prefers. My 5100 looks like a bullock cart compared to the sleeker models; my friends tease me for using a...
