Nokia 6060 review
| ||Review: February 2006
In a nutshell: The 6060 is a mundane phone from Nokia, who still seem to have trouble getting their flip phones up to the mark.
A very basic phone, this one is overpriced and has reliability issues too - not great for a phone with so few features. If you're a Nokia fan looking for a basic clamshell-style phone this might appeal, but we wouldn't really recommend it.
Everything about this phone is underwhelming, from the basic low-resolution display to the very poor 16-voice polyphonic ringtones. The competition has been offering 40-voice or better ringtones for years. Other negatives include the small, fiddly keys and the below-average audio quality.
Looking on the positive side, the 6060 is a nice-sized clamshell. It's smart (if you ignore the ugly external aerial) and has cool pulsating lights. Battery life is good, the integrated handsfree speaker and voice commands are a bonus, and there are a few extras such as email, a web browser and an expense manager program.
Nokia 6060 features include:
- Display: 65,536 colours, 160 x 128 pixels
- Integrated handsfree speaker
- Voice commands and voice dialing
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, Instant Messaging, email (SMTP, POP3, and IMAP4)
- 16-voice polyphonic ringtones / MP3 ringtones
- Pulsating lights
- Java games
- Themes and wallpapers
- Date & time screensaver
- Phonebook (500 entries)
- Caller ID with image
- Personal organiser functions: calendar, notes, to-do-list, expense manager
- WAP 1.2.2, GPRS class 6
- xHTML browser
- Vibration alert
- Dual band
- Size: 85 x 44 x 24 mm
- Weight: 93g
- Talktime: 3.5 hours
- Battery standby: up to 400 hours

I had this phone for a couple of months and I thank goodness I could sell it because that time it cost fortune. The only one good thing about this phone is quit comfortable as you can use the clamshell answering, but another features like menu, ring tones did leave me a lot of impress

My wife and I have a pair of Nokia 6060's and over the course of the last couple of years have suffered from an annoying problem. The ringtones keep turning themselves off and we are left with an inaudible beep when a call comes in. This only happens from time to time, and it seems to be midi tones rather than MP3's that turn off. Any thoughts anybody?

You gotta be kidding. This is one of the best cost-benefit phones. It has excellent audio and a really powerful speaker phone, I can make my calls while driving without any cops realizing I am on the phone. Although very limited on memory (2Mb) I can play .mp3s or use them as a ringtone and carry my son's pictures as a wallpaper. I also could backup all data to the PC and restore it later. It cost me 29 BUCKS for which I am very happy with it. My phone received all kinds of abuse (less water, of course) has lots of dents and dings and works FLAWLESSLY. I Recommended to many friends and they bought it and think pretty much the same. You review is too biased or focused on tech hungry people and their big buck cumbersome devices. Common!

I LOVE BUYING NOKIA PHONES AND HAVE BOUGHT A FEW OVER THE PAST YEARS, 6600,N90,N91 TO NAME A FEW. I BOUGHT THE 6060 AS A SECOND PHONE AND ENDED UP USING IT AS A FIRST PHONE. I PUT ASIDE MY N8800 CAUSE THE BATTERY WAS NOT LASTING LONG.HOWEVER THE 6060 BATTERY LASTS WELL OVER THREE DAYS AND I DO MAKE ALOT OF CALLS IN A DAY. I AM AMAZED AT THIS LITTLE CUTE PHONE. HAD IT OVER A YEAR AND NO PROBLEM.

I bought one in Saudi Arabia and had it for 4 months. I fell in love with it after I gave it to my Mother in Law and couldn't replace it due to market unavailability. It's user friendly and for the person that don't need a on-board computer, this little phone is great for allround use !

I have this phone for 1 year now. It's great! I don't have problems with it. But hey, I only want a basic phone, no cameras needed since I don't like phone with cameras (poor picture qualities usually). Drop it few times, but still OK. A bit disappointed for not having an FM Radio. But overall, I'll stick with it till I found another basic but fashinable phone. (with the Radio, of course)

the people who have written bad things about this phone are very stupid,
i payed 99$ australian thats around $70 US and it came with $30 credit.
THE POINT TO THIS PHONE IS THAT IT ISNT MENT TO SOUND GOOD IT ISNT MENT
TO HAVE A HUGE LIST OF FEATURES ITS A REALLY CHEAP PHONE THEREFORE YOU
CANNOT ASK ANY MORE FROM IT!!. if you are unhappy with it then SUFFER@!,
it servs you right for buying such a cheap phone in the first place
have you ever heard the saying you get what you pay for? its like comparing
a mercedes to a hyundai, a sony to a radioshack, you get my drift its
a great phone and it does what it is ment to do, personaly its perfect
for me as i only use mobiles for SMS and phone calls. if i want to take
photos i have a 6 megapixel digital camera for that, if i want a decent
movie without large pixel blocks then i would use my digital video camera.
great phone, just because you have gone and payed for a new mobile doesnt
mean it will be state of the art, and when its only $70us then WTF are
you complaining about!!!?

Have found this a great little phone. HOWEVER, the audio quality is
terrible. I find it difficult to hear people when talking on the phone
& it is beginning to drive me nuts. Sometimes you can hear really well
& other times you can't hear a thing people are saying to you.

My 6060 is business standard so I had no choice. Nevertheless, it is
functional enough for my job BUT the ear audio is not loud enough for
me - I struggle to hear the caller. Cant find a control to increase
the sound, can someone advise me how to do this? I assume it is possible,
most mobiles do offer loudness control.

Simple and reliable phone for excellent price. Don't know what some
other reviewers do with it, but never had any problems since I bought
it 8 months ago. Flip works good, screen is fine. If you want to use
your own wallpaper / mp3-ring, upload it on the internet somewhere and
download it with your phone.

What is all this talk about the phone being unrealiable and crashing
all the time? I've owned this phone for 6 months now and never had any
problems with it. The review mentioned that it has only 16-voice poly
ringtones. Who needs them when you have mp3? Gotta be honest that the
mp3 quality isn't too good either but that's the case with all cell
phones. Can't give a bad rating for a fairly cheap phone for lacking
all different kinds of gadgets. One tech minus for me is the a lil bit
below the average sound quality. The other one as someone mentioned
the problems with downloadable applications, couldn't make some game
work even when it was supposed to be compatible with the phone. Configurable
menus really make it easy to use and the "small" keys just take a lil
while to get used to. Overall it's a very nice and good looking basic
flip phone for a comparable price. ****/*****

I dont know what to say about this phone.. sure, it looks cute, but
it has let me down, where no other Nokia phones have before. I find
that it is almost impossible to turn the phone on or off, and, you almost
need to turn the phone around the wrong way to hear when on a call,
otherwise, you need to use "Speakerphone" and that is rude and still
bad quality anyway.

I have used the Panasonic x70 but lately it won't hold charge so have
decided to change phones. After a lot of consideration I decided to
go for the Nokia 6060 without actually seeing it and going frofm what
wasa written on it. Menat to get 50 text message free a month but ocntract
when received said 250 free for 6 months. That is false advertising
and its not even 50 per month. I don't like the maga large digits when
tyoing int eh phone number and over all I find the phone far too basic
and I do like an average phone with no too many aspects to it. On a
good note the Nokia 6060 is a good size and looks brilliant. Easy to
navigate and a great phone for htose who feel intimidated with too many
fancy options. I have had this phone for just enough time to decide
it is definately going back. My son has the Nokia K750i so will have
a look at his before deciding to get that one or not. As i find the
phone average rather than good I have given it only 2 stars.
