Nokia 3310 to be available through Spark New Zealand

HMD Global, the company behind Nokia phones, is introducing the Nokia 3310 3G. With fresh new colours and a new user interface that lets fans pick a theme to suit their mood, this modern classic is now 3G enabled. And yes, it still has Snake. 


Available in New Zealand from 7 November 2017, the Nokia 3310 3G combines the talk and text appeal of the current model with a 3G data connection, meaning you can now enjoy the classic across more countries. 


The new Nokia 3310 3G will be available exclusively through Spark and customers can pre-register their interest from today at


“We’re excited to provide our customers with a Kiwi favourite and to celebrate this awesome comeback Spark will be hosting an open event at Spark City in Auckland today from 10am to 2pm where members of the public can put their snake skills to the test. Those with the highest score will walk away with their very own 3310 before it hits our shelves,” says Clive Ormerod, GM Customer & Marketing at Spark New Zealand. 


The retro user interface has been improved to deliver an enhanced, customisable experience which means you can now change the icon colours and position to ensure your favourite functions are exactly how you want them to be. 


“Our reimagining of the Nokia 3310 has been a global and cultural phenomenon. In a world dominated by smartphones, the mix of nostalgia and a beautiful phone that just keeps going has captured people’s imagination. Our fans around the world have been asking for this iconic phone to support 3G. Fans asked, we listened, and today we’re pleased to announce the Nokia 3310 3G arrival in New Zealand,” says Mark Trundle, Regional GM, HMD Global.
