Nokia 6061 (AT&T)

Nokia 6061

Henry Thoreau once wrote, "Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify." Perhaps this is the approach Nokia took when designing its Nokia 6061. Devoid of any fancy design elements or advanced voice and data features, the 6061 for Cingular Wireless is a good starter phone for technophobes or teens. It gets job number one--making calls--done and even throws in a couple of extras, such as a speakerphone and a Web browser. The Nokia 6061 is reasonably priced at $79.99, but with online discounts, you can get it for free.

With a polished black and silver look, the Nokia 6061's design has understated elegance down pat. The sides have a rubberlike feel for a better grip, but holding on to this flip phone isn't a problem, since it's so light and compact (3.5 by 1.7 by 0.9 inches; 3.3 ounces). While we appreciate the simplicity of this handset, an external screen would have been a nice addition. Instead, there's only a red sliver on the front flap that lights up to alert you to an incoming call or message. Unfortunately, there's no volume rocker; in fact, there are no controls on either spine. That means during a conversation, you'll have to remove the phone from your face and use the navigation toggle--a bit annoying.
