I have had my 6086 for over 3 years, and would not hesitate to buy one again. It has never failed me. Even it remote areas, it has been able to communicate when my friends have had issues with their units. Of course there are some places that no phone will work, as in valleys, and far from towers. It has good sound quality, both talking and receiving. It is sturdy - I have dropped it, lost it, found it again the next day. I usually hang it around my neck on a lanyard and it gets banged around a lot when I go hiking. The battery lasts about a week - I have 2 fully charged spares at all times. Music sounds great. I create my own ringtones and background pics, and upload to the micro SD card. Nokia software for the PC is on the Nokia site and is free. The camera is the only bad thing on this unit. Results are poor, at best. I would give it 5 stars, but because of the camera I give it 4.3.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2009-01-12 14:43 from 4SxZ - click to readI have had 3 of these phones since July 2007 when the Hot Spot at home came out. Two of the phones have died, one under warranty and one out of warranty. The 6086 phone has only a 33% chance of surviving the two year contract. A replacement 6086 has started overheating and I am afraid it will catch on fire. So that makes the odds only 25% that it will last over two years. It is a good thing you can't buy this phone any more. The Consumer Product Safety Commission should be told about the overheating. I am not wasting any more time with this junk.

I have experienced connectivity speeds of 229 kbps, near the maximum data transfer rate for the Class 10 EDGE protocol (236.8 kbps), which is the EDGE data capability for this phone. Time for an upgrade soon, as the 6086 is far behind the technology curve, but it would be cost effective to keep it around, as it's not at the end of its useful life just yet.

This phone is used as a cellular modem paired with a Toshiba Tecra A9 Notebook over bluetooth connecting with the T-Mobile Total Internet dial up.
(no Wi-Fi, Ethernet LAN or Air Card available to me in the field). Every function in this mode is flawless. Download speeds over this connection are running at 200 kbps - respectable for a dialup. Works as a simple and quick web connectivity backup option. It also functions as a T-Mobile Hotspots@Home phone employing encrypted pairing with the WRT54G linksys wireless router. Purchased the phone in June, 2007 from T-Mobile when they rolled out Hotspots @ Home that month so that it might be used at a residential location in the T-Mobile cell network which has low signal strength (UMA protocol -- Unlicensed Mobile Access). Wi-Fi to cellular switching back and forth performs well. I have never had a big problem with it, but two weaknesses do exist: the antenna system is a little weak where the cell phone signal is of very low strength and the screen is a little delicate (if excessive pressure is applied to the clamshell when closed, it then begins to take a few seconds for the LCD to come up when unfolded -- a build quality and durability issue that is a concern). This phone is too delicate to be thrown around. Also, the screen resolution is not the greatest at 128 x 160 pixels. Even the old Nokia 3650 had 176 x 208 pixels.

Both my wife and I have had this phone for about a year and a half. Since nearly the beginning we have had battery overheat issues. Tmobile sent us a new battery to replace one and we put it in my wifes phone. It started overheating too. My phone still overheats and now the screen blinks to black on a regular rate, about every 5 seconds or so. When the phone is open it will just blink real quick to black and then back to the screen. This also interrupts dialing. If I'm dialing a number it will momentarily stop accepting the number and cause me to double enter a number.
We live in an area where tmobile coverage is not great, so we use the wifi feature to call through our home wireless network to give us better reception. This is a great feature, but for all the other problems we have had, I'm not impressed. I have always had Nokia, but this ranks up with one of the worst.
