Mine is in great condition - no physical damage after 2+ years.

This IS a very durable phone. Have your friend try a Moto or Kyocera and it'll probably turn to dust, in his hands.

Sorry dude, but my friend's 6256 broke, and now, since I made the original post in March, so has MINE. Crying or Very sad

These are not unique cases either... Google around, and you'll find plenty of folks complaining about their 6256's breaking at or around the hinge. Or you can just check out what other people on this very forum have had to say: ... » ... » ... »

Wish I'd known how bad it was before I bought.

And its not hard to see why the 6256 fails at the hinge lots... there's just not much meat there. The plastic is VERY THIN where it wraps around the hinge cylinder. Bad design on Nokia's part.

So, again I say, NOT a durable phone. And its a total cryin' shame. Because other than that, I really digged the phone (even wrote a very positive review for it), and took good care of it.

I'd be using it still, if it hadn't broken on me. Mad
