Pros Look, size, feel, ease of use, soft touch keys...
Cons No headset included
Summary Set the Automatic Volume Control to OFF. You can now control call volume manually. If set to "On", AVC regulates call volume according to background noise - quiet environment, low volume. Menu, Settings (the wrench), Call Settings.
Being a speakerphone is great; but not always appropriate. Bluetooth would've been nice, but there goes the affordable price! A headset should stilll be included standard equipment.
Slick, sexy, sized-right, uncomplicated FLIP phone - with MUSIC tones - that does quite a lot for the price! Nokia hit a homerun with this little jewel!
Pros free, small, nice look
Cons no external caller ID
Summary I have read where volume has been a problem for many people and it was for me too. After reading up on this issue I realized it is quite simple to fix. When you are making a call just press the silver ring to the right and the volume will increase. This only works if you have the auto volume skill turned off. Hope this helps a few people.
Pros No extras, I don't need reading glasses to use, no external buttons
Cons User manual leaves out important things like phone volume, speakerphone activation
Summary In contrast to some of the reviews I have read, I specifically picked this phone because it does not have some irritating features.
1. The external buttons on my old Motorola were constantly changing my ring settings, so that I would miss calls, so I did not want them on my new phone.
2. The external window on most flip phone covers I cannot read without reading glasses (I am 52), so I didn't want one. I wanted to be able to open the cover and actually see who is calling before answering the call.
3. I have cameras, I don't need another one in my phone.
This phone seems to work reliably, it is very compact, and I can use it without reading glasses. The ear speaker you have to have in just the right place, and the speakerphone option sounds tinny, but it is an incredibly compact unit with really good battery life. Using profiles, you can set the phone to vibrate mode for a certain amount of time, then it will automatically reset to the normal ring.
Pros A lot of good features
Cons Bad in call volume
Summary I got this phone, & it had repeated problems with signal fluctuation. The in call volume was bad, on maximum setting I still had to use the speakerphone on numerous calls. In order to hear the other caller. I was not to impressed with this phone, due to the signal fluctuation & the in call volume. Nokia needs to make improvements on this.Updated
I got a replacement Nokia 6061 through warranty exchange. This one is a lot better than the first one. It will place & make calls with only 1 signal bar. As I live in a rural area this is a good test for cellphones. The volume on this one is a lot better, still this area has a lot of signal fluctuation. This one so far is working good.
"Volume is a problem!"on by rhight
Pros Simple overall--great keypad, phone is easy to use.
Cons Reception not the best; no external volume control; volume not high enough.
Summary I wanted a basic, solid performing phone. While this attractive little phone fills the bill in several respects (nice large keypad, bright display with large text, enclosed antenna, easy one-hand manipulation) in other areas it just didn't measure up.
The phone just didn't keep signal as well as my Motorola. I used it around Houston, and had signal-loss problems in several places where my Motorola performed very well. Also, the volume simply didn't go high enough on a couple of occasions in traffic. This characteristic was combined with the fact that you have to take the phone away from your ear to adjust the volume--I found myself asking the other party to wait a second while I pushed the volume up as high as it would go, then straining to hear them.
An adequate basic phone for the occasional user. Not adequate for all-day use in business.
