The Nokia 6315i (type RM-215) is a Nokia-branded CDMA flip phone released on September 21st, 2006 for Verizon Wireless. Much like many Nokia CDMA phones made for Verizon, this was manufactured by Compal, under supervision from Pantech.

Its main features include a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and external music controls. It has an external antenna, a feature that was seen as outdated by some, but it provided decent call quality. The 6315i also supports Verizon's VCAST video and music services.

A review from the time praised the phone's external controls and good feature set for the price. They noted that the build quality was decent, but not as good as phones manufactured by Nokia.[1] Another review criticized the device's multimedia features and boring design.[2]
