WOW , this baby accepts the old 5 Volt Vodafone WHITE SIM cards , Bonus , usually when I try the old 5 volt sim card in ANY NEW NOKIA it always displays SIM CARD REJECTED but not the 6030
i juz bought it last few weeks...
very nice batery life...
n a nice fon too..
is this phone capable of playing mp3 tones? and how is the keypad? I really sms a lot. Something like 50 texts a day. Is the keypad soft enough for my fingers to type so much?

is the games working good on this phone?
does the ringtones sound good?
did any one know that where the ringtone converter software avaliable in internet coz i think 6030 only supports midi files :'(
i bought this phone last week. downloaded a bunch of java games. nice graphics, music and sound effects. i myself was wondering whether can data be transferred to the phone from PC. the phone is really cheap, but the GPRS rates are killing me.
I bought 6030 phone just because my friend pursuaded me. I think it is a blunt model with no support of infrared or bluetooth, which is an inevitable these days. Moreover, ringtone is always ascending no matter even I choose ringing. Only 1 game is provided that to awful. I initially had 3100 model which has good built in polyphonic tones. But 6030 has a bunch of noisy tones not worth listening even once. The phone has FM radio option, which is fortunately good.
In response to all those questions as to whether your Nokia 6030 supports data connectivity through cable, the saddening answer is NO. The port at the bottom of the phone (it's a 4-pin Mini-USB port) is only for servicing (ie software upgrades, flashing etc). This was the response given to me by Nokia's Customer Care directly.
But what strikes me as funny is that, if you check out Nokia's description of this Phone's features on their website
they say its got a Plug and Play connector. What's the use if you can only "Plug" and not "Play"!!
But I admit, it's a great phone, no-frills, great battery life, network reception and reliability.
on questions regarding MMS on 6030:
the MMS send/receive is working fine, but every network has its own MMS settings for every phone model. so you have to download/update these settings first. it's almost SOP for MMS-capable phones.
there are separate data cables sold for the 6030. unfortunately i can't find one anywhere, so i had to figure out how to upload photos from my PC. i found a neat way to do it. upload your photos on the web (there are tons of sites that offer free web hosting) and download it via GPRS. my network provides free GPRS and charges only when i download something (something like $0.003 per kb) so that's an advantage. also, photos don't lose their high-quality this way (as some networks do to accomodate OTA MMS).
as with the polyphonic ringtones, i use the same method. there's a neat PC program called the power tab editor (for musicians) where you can download these tons of popular songs and export them as midi files. not too many great accurate songs are out there, so this is a very good alternative.
i hope all these helps.
www.datakits.co do not have a cable there fit to Nokia 6030. I have a problem with them to get a return-number, so I can return the cable and get my money back!

i have bought this set yesterday i wanted to know that can this set play mp3 tunes
Darnit, I've bought a Nokia 6030 today but there's something wrong.
Whenever I select a ringtone to be used, and I switch the telephone off and on again, the ringtone has set back to the default ringtone, which is "ringtone 24 sp midi.MID".
Does anyone know how to fix this issue? Other settings like keyboardsound and loudness of the ringtone are held just fine after switching on and off... Plz help :(
Hello Sir/Ma'am, I have bought a nokia 6030 (only after satisfying myself with the reviews of your Site). I found a 4 pin Mini USB interface at the bottot(Bottom Connector). I tried in different places to get a connector for this but I failed to get one. I live in Bangalore. Kindly help me out to get one.
>How can I turn of the background in the menu's?
>I once succeded in turning them off, but don't remember how... so it is possible.
I bought a 6030 yesterday...
I needed only to switch on and off the phone, I didnt removed the simcard. Maybe it needs to be switched off for a longer period cause I experienced background image to be gone in the morning after 8 hours of off state.
If so it would be really interesting ;)
