crkkuczek's review of the Nokia 6030

original version, submitted Feb 5, 2014, 2:11 PM:

a good basic phone and backup phone

After my phone broke two days ago, I began using my grandmother's Nokia 6030 phone, which she hardly uses. In the short amount of time I have used it. This phone has a long battery life and good audio quality. The speaker volume is better than on my much newer and, now non functioning, LG Xpression. I like the physical buttons and how you get firm feedback when you press them. I like how you can customize the arrow keys so that you can access other parts of the phone that do not make the phone launch the internet. Texting is alright. I also like that it is small and compact and fits in my purse. I also wanted to point out that this phone does, in fact, read the new SIM cards that AT&T has.

One of the downsides of this phone is that it feels cheap, like it's going to break just from holding it and pressing the buttons. It is not a world phone. So, if you need a world phone, I suggest looking for something else. There are also not that many ringtones to choose from. There is also not a camera on this phone, which is why I left the camera rating field blank.

All in all, this phone is great for a back up phone. It is a phone and not anything else, really. If you are someone looking for a cheap basic phone that does not have a bunch of added features, or if you need a backup phone, you may want to check this one out.
