I've still got a 6610 I think I bought back in about 2002 and costs $10 a month to keep it on the network as my 'emergency phone'.
Thing has been through 36 countries, soaked up more x-rays than most satellites, drunkenly drop kicked across the odd dance floor a few times, trodden more than once and the damn thing just keeps going... reality is that there is no point throwing it away despite my blackberry I use for business and a sat-phone.
Just works, makes phone calls.
Thats the reason i keep my old 6310i...sold off all the other phones i had, kept that one just in case i need a protective shield in case of a nuclear attack.
Although the worst abuse i ever inflicted on any nokia phone was my first nokia smartphone, the 3650...Got dropped from a 3rd floor balcony several times, got wet twice in a pool, once in the sea, forgot it on the roof of the car several times which resulted in it hitting the asphalt at 50kmh at the first corner...
After years of abuse, what happened is that the battery had enough and swelled to twice its original size, the speaker works, but barely and it barely has any origional paintwork on it...but otherwise, the damn thing still works
