Nokia 6030


Pros: compact, good screen, fm radio, durable

Cons: plastic of keys squeak a little, but I didn't care

I loved this phone. Friends teased me eventually because it's a bit old school (no camera, etc) but it met my needs perfectly - easy nav and shortcuts, good screen, good battery life fm radio (which I love for my walks to work), good sound quality, etc. I eventually upgraded to a new phone but definitely held on to it as long as I could. Don't think they still sell them new but if you're looking for a good deal by a new or refurb one on eBay and you won't be disappointed.


When my other phone split in two (no joke!) and I was faced with buying one $200 phone or the other, this was my happy Plan B - the free phone from my boyfriend, who long ago upgraded to iPhone.  I have not yet entered the world of email on anything other than a computer, so this phone is just great for me and my simple expectations.   Still holding up after two owners and a few drops.  The only downside is that the screen is terribly hard to see when I'm out in the sun. 

Nokia 6030

First and foremost, the 6030 is designed for stylish simplicity. Large, easy-to-press buttons are arranged on a sleek oval-shaped case, which is compatible with Nokia "X-Press On" faceplates. A large 128 x 128 color display resides above a five-way center button that controls most of the phone's menus and functions. A 2.5mm headphone jack is provided if you want to use a wired headset for calls or the included FM radio. Note that stereo sound is not available, however. Lastly, the 6030 uses an internal antenna -- meaning there's nothing to snag or break off.
