The 6010 is designed with first-time cell phone users in mind. The buttons are large and the case, which is compatible with Nokia "X-Press On" front and rear faceplates, is ergonomically shaped. A large 96 x 65 color display features large fonts for easier reading and navigation of the phone's menus. A large power button dominates the top of the phone, while a 2.5mm headphone jack and charging input are placed on the bottom edge. The 6010 uses an internal antenna-- nothing to snag or break off.
The 6010's built-in address book can store up to 500 contacts for quick and easy management of phone numbers and addresses. In addition to a vibrate alert, the phone comes with built-in polyphonic ringtones. Different ringtones can be set for individual callers so you know who's calling without having to look at the device. One-touch dialing and voice-activated dialing are also supported. A call log keeps track of your 20 most recent dialed calls and 10 of your most recent missed or received calls.
Messaging, Internet and Tools
The 6010 has all the bases covered when it comes to messaging and Internet connectivity. Use the phone's built-in picture messaging capability to send text, graphics and pictures to your friends. The phone features support for instant messaging applications (carrier messaging charges apply), and there's also a built-in web browser for downloads and mobile web browsing. Traditional text messaging and picture messaging is also supported by the phone. T9 text entry, a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.
A number of handy software tools are bundled with the 6010 including a calculator, a calendar with up to 500 entries, a to-do list with up to 30 entries, and an alarm clock with snooze.
Imaging and Entertainment
Use wallpaper templates or customize your own wallpapers to give your phone a look that suits your tastes. Eight color schemes are built-in to help you dress up the phone's menus. The 6010 is Java enabled, meaning it supports games written on the Java platform. The phone ships with some great games, Air Glide, Sky Diver, Backgammon, and Bowling.

Customer Review: excellent service
I received this phone very quickly. I bought it for my mother and she had a problem with the battery. I had no problems at all with getting a new one. Excellent service with the seller.
Customer Review: malfunctioning product
this was terrible - did not work, I am thinking that the old product had been in original case for so long that the battery was completely dead (not responding to charging). Bought an Iphone instead of wasting time on this garbage
