Nokia 6030 Review
Review: September 2005.
The Nokia 6030 is a non-camera phone with a smart appearance but limited
functionality for the price.
On the positive side, this is a good-looking phone, with an appearance
more like a top-end business phone. The keypad is well designed and
functional, with a nice 4-way scroll key, and configurable right and
left soft keys. The keypad does suffer a little from Nokia's habit of
making keypads "cool", but it's perfectly functional. All
of the basics are here, plus a couple of extras like the FM radio and
integrated handsfree speaker. The display has 65k colours and is better
than many of its competitors.
On the negative side, the 6030 seems to be rather pricey for what you
get. For the same money you might have expected some decent connectivity
(the 6030 has none - not even cable or infra-red), triband and even
a camera. The 6030 has none of these features. It's not even that lightweight,
considering that it has so little functionality. However, if you're
a Nokia fan looking for a phone that costs less than £100 and
doesn't have a camera, then this is as good a choice as any.
Features of the Nokia 6030 include:
- Display: 65,536 colours, 128 x 128 pixels
- FM radio
- Integrated handsfree speaker
- Polyphonic ringtones
- Messaging: SMS, MMS
- Downloadable Java games
- Speed dialing
- Four-way scroll with select key
- Configurable right and left soft keys
- Xpress-on covers
- XHTML browser
- Phonebook (300 entries)
- Vibration alert
- WAP 2.0, GPRS class 6
- Dual band
- Size: 104 x 44 x 18 mm
- Weight: 90g
- Talktime: up to 3 hours
- Battery standby: up to 300 hours

The Nokia 6030 is in essense a good phone. Feature count is good given
it costs around £50.00 GBP. The radio is listenable (mono only)however
the supplied headset sounds vague/distant in use. The use of a standard
Nokia earpiece solves this. The speaker phone mode is effective if a
little distorted. Ideal for inverting the phone in a shirt pocket (so
mic is facing you) and talking handsfree. The calender works well with
seemimgly infinate space for reminders (I haven't reached the limit
anyway, and it's used a lot). The keys are worth a mention too, as they
are very comfortable in use, soft yet positive. The main silver Navi
button takes some getting use to, but works well enough. Battery life
is well over a week on standby. Oddities include not being able to perform
a group delete on text message delivery reports (you could on the now
ancient but still good 3310 and 3210!)and the fact it seems to like
collecting dust. Not good even if the covers are changable so you can
get the dust out. Maybe someone will make a Dyson attachment. The biggest
issue however is the screen. At night it's great, but in strong daylight
its almost useless with visibility being very bad indeed. To sum up
I still like it. It's nice to use and is comfortable. Ringtones sounds
good enough and to be fair the screen works well most of the time (reasonable
quality, it's just in sunlight forget it!) Would be a fair bargain if
obtained secound hand for say £25 mark.

Traded an old tatty 6100 against a new 6030 and paid the equivalent
of 21 Euro for it here in Thailand Seems a very cheap price for a smart
phone. Radio is ok but all local Thai stations so don't understand anyway
but it sounds nice.
Reviewed by Candy from Guyana on 27th Aug 2006
I think that this phone lacks in the area of features for a phone with
that price. It should be priced basically in the same category as the
Nokia 1600 which is a bit better than it in some ways save the FM radio
for example. I really do enjoy the radio that was what misled me into
buying that phone.

This phone is awful - badly designed and shabbily made. It has a cheap,
plasticky feel to it. Operation is awkward if your fingers are any bigger
than matchsticks. It is slow, the audio quality is bad and it sounds
very tinny. Ringtones are too quiet. A total disaster.

1. Good as a phone. 2. I like the battery charge holding time - 10 days
at moderate use with DAILY (adjustable) ALARM Clock on!!! Very efficient
and configurable feature - I love it!!! 3. Although there is a very
annoying BUG - when you switch the radio ON and then disconnect the
headphones the phone DOES NOT recognize it and when you receive a call
or you call sbdy then you can't hear anything unless you turn on the
speaker ("hands free") or connect the headphones back! For 2 DAYS I
was looking for what the heck happened to my phone?!!Eventually I noticed
the radio is still on although it CAN NOT work without the headset.
I simply needed to switch it OFF manually. This really sucks - it is
your fault, Nokia designers!!!. 4. To connect to computer you need either
a special service cable to connect UNDER the battery (you can see there
a few connector "spots") - extremely uncomfortable!!! - OR - suprisingly
- buy an USB data cable (DKU-5)for this phone ;))) It costs 5 to 10
USD (on ebay) PLUS shipment. Produced in China ONLY - as far as I learned.The
USB Cable comes with a driver/software on a CD. Finlly I managed to
dowload a "Solytare" game (free!!!) and other stuff from Internet to
my PC and to transfer it to my NOKIA - that's great!!!!;)) The only
pitty is - whenever I look at my phone I wonder why is it not loaded
with some more features (e.g. mp3 player, etc.)since it really looks
like capable of much more...:))) After 8 months I realised I really
need a bluetooth phone, so I need to change. But I really like this
one, and I can't make this final decision. Not yet :)))

If you're a technology buff who has this phone, there are a lot of things
you will not understand about the design of the phone itself. I had
a very old inexpensive Nokia that was about 3 years old, and it had
all the features the 6030 has, and then a few more. The 6030 does not
let you customize ring tones for different people which I found to be
rather odd. The navigation buttons are difficult to just press ONE button,
instead of slipping and pressing other ones (especially the center black
menu button). It is actually very common to try and press the menu button,
and end up pressing FIVE other buttons. I would not reccommend this
phone to any tech buff, I think it would be perfect for someone who
does not use a phone for much other than dialing. Texting is a pain
with this phone as well. You will see what I mean if you get the phone.
No regrets in buying it, it's just very limited in features. Usually
when you get a new phone, you get a few surprise features that you did
not know about. Don't expect that with the 6030, in fact don't even
assume it has some of the standard features your old phone had either.

Mobile is very good and easy to operate. Easy Navigation and stylish
look. The voice clarity is very good and FM Radio is Excellent but the

the Mobile phone then this the Model which has no competation.

Does (or rather did) everything I could have wanted from a no-camera
'phone. Until, about 3 weeks after I got it, the in-car (hands-free)
connection failed. This is proper Nokia kit, compatible with this 'phone
as well as my previous one (3510i). Nokia tried to blame the in-car
kit, until I was able to prove (by connecting the 3510i to it) that
it was the 6030 at fault, not the kit! Having got the 'phone from Vodafone
in the first place, I tried to get a replacement from them, only there
weren't any in the UK, and they couldn't explain why not. Two months
on, and I'm still waiting for my call to tell me that they finally have
one and can replace this one. However, I'm not holding my breath!! Good

there is no way i can retrieve files/data from another cellphone. and
it just sucks badly. i wanted to have a very rare ringtone and i just
couldn't get it after trying every available medium. the phone couldn't
even download from a commercial ringtone site. my service provider has
charged me with an amount that corresponded to the download cost, but
the phone had just dysfunctional features that prevented me to download
the tones that i requested. at first look the phone seems to be made
of metal but after doing a thorough scrutiny, or after owning one, the
metal-looking designs eventually reveals themselves to be just mere
plastic. although the plastic succeeded in imitating the metal look,
i can't think of other good reasons why nokia wanted to imitate metal
but to actually make other people to believe that someone who owns a
nokia 6030 is someone who owns an expensive phone. it's like, if "poor"
people wanted to show off an expensive phone, they could always buy
a nokia 6030 and let everyone know that they're owning an status quo
phone. the only thing good in this phone is that it has a good battery
life. compared to other phones, it is relatively heavy. the design of
the battery cover is loose.

2. Ringtones loudness is wonderful. 3. GPRS is fast in comparison to
previous s40 entry level phones. 4. Keypad is the best among all other
nokia phones. 5. Attractive appearence. 6. Radio Quality is great. 7.
SIM holder is better than others in many Nokias. 8. The phone was dropped
around 5 times since 21 August and it's still functioning as I just
first bought it. 9. Ease of use and wide configuration of shortcuts.
------------------- -ve: ---- 1. Back cover falls easily. 2. Screen
fades too much in the sun. 3. Lighting interval before the phone saves
power is very short. 4. When some body calls u, the phone displays the
name around 1 or 2 seconds earlier than the ringtone. 5. If u try to
edit a 128*128 JPG image & save it, it saves automatically as 96*96
GIF image! (I believe this is a bug in all s40 phones) 6. Calendar has
only month view. 7. No IR, BT or an official Data Cable. 8. No wallet,
count down timer or a stop watch. 9. If u remove the battery then insert
it, u have to set time & date from scratch. ------------

of which Nokia are aware but appear unwilling to address: 1) The saver
feature (where the screen brightness dims after a short interval) is
too short, if you've a long text you cannot read it in the available
time. There is no way to adjust the time period. 2) The phone comes
with 2 themes named Microdots and Flower. With both, when you write
a text you get a white background, nice and easy to view. However on
ALL the other screens these themes remain in the background and cannot
be removed. This is very problematic when trying to read a text against
one of these coloured backgrounds! Nokia's helpline solution was to
download a 3rd party theme with a light coloured background. Hardly

Hi! Me, too, is a NOKIA 6030 user. Everything in this set is perfect,
but lack of IR and connectivity cable has reduced its popularity. The
concerned fellows need to add the features in it.

If your after a simple non-camera phone this is well worth checking
out. As a phone it performs well - battery life so far is very good
and it looks rather smart. The FM radio is a nice bonus and offers good
quality sound. (For those wanting a case, the krusell one is a very
good fit and also looks the part if a bit pricey).

If like me your after a mobile that does what it needs to do and don't
need all the flashy gimzo's, then you can't go far wrong with the Nokia
6030. The styling is excellent for the price, & looks alot more exspensive
than it is. Receiving calls are good & clear, the color screen is ok
and the FM radio is excellent, and comes in handy when your at work
when you want to now the latest footy results. All in all this another
good cheap mobile from Nokia it does what mobiles were designed to do
in the first place with a bonus of a FM radio

This phone is not enough value for money.the only features worth mentioning
are 1) the stereo headphones 2)the FM radio 3)the four way navigation
key which can be customised.But the build quality is really poor and
the phones squeaks right from the time you lay hands on it.And what
is the use of 65 k color display if it doesnt have a camera? Arent you
beter off buying a 2600 if you just want a basic phone?

Hi ppl. this phone is just nice, i like the messaging, its just wonderfully
easy to use the predictive text. Its light very stylish and elegant.
Tha FM is owesome and enough preset stations. The only thing i dont
like about it just like all Nokia phones, is the losing of time and
date when the battery is removed. Again the lower cover feels very loose,
owing to the fact that I have only had the phone for two weeks. To solve
this problems,i am thinking of SonyEricson K750i, Please would any one
inform me if SonyEricson phones loose date and time on battery removal.

Everything is Ecellent at such a price. But no data cable information/available.
So you have to shed lots of money to download wallpapers, ringtones,

I got this phone for a day as of this writing. I initially bought a
Nokia 3120 but I was dissatisfied with it (poor response time, ghosting,
poor screen, etc.) so I opted for a new budget phone. This review is
somewhat like a comparison between the two. The Nokia 6030 is priced
a little higher than the Nokia 3120. For external appearance, I give
it a 4 rating: the black colored version looks cool, elegant and expensive
(lol!). The plastic almost looks metallic. The keypad is evenly spaced
between rows, the 4 way navigational keypad feels solid but the central
button could have been made smaller because my thumb bumps into it when
using the navigation pad. The screen is bright, and with more color
capability than the N 3120, looks more pleasing to the eye. One problem
is the plate at the back: it seems to have come loose and in another
review site, the author says he had the same problem. Another is that
there seems to be no way to connect to a PC! It has no bluetooth, and
as of the moment, no data cable available. You have got to wonder what
the little rectangular slot at the bottom is for, though. The manual
doesn't state what it is for. The included software features are pretty
standard. But you have to use GPRS to download/update applications and
games and to install new tunes, themes and graphics. With this kind
of hassle, I give it a functionality rating of 2 -- it could have been
avoided if Nokia gave it Bluetooth or cable connectivity. Even other
lower end models can at least use a data cable. Geez. Overall, a good
looking phone, but don't expect too much on its software or connectivity

With FM radio. But no IR, bluetooth and camera(but I don't need a camera
on a phone I do have my digi cam.) Screen is bright and you can adjust
brightness. You can also modify the shortcuts to your liking. This phone
is only dual band. Must buy another phone when going to US. Battery
lasts 4 days(normal use plus FM radio 2 to 3 hrs a day) This phone looks
like a SE phone. Overall this is a very excellent phone for simple people.
Affordable and great value for money. =)
