I've had my Nokia 6030 cell phone since 2006, and it's still going strong. I have even dropped it multiple times with impacts that knocked it apart, leaving it with only some scrapes and nicks on the plastic parts and only one mostly-unnoticeable scratch on the screen. This phone is simple and basic--no camera, no keyboard, no sliding or flipping. It is a modest rectangular shape with hard plastic buttons (not the semi-squishy rubbery kind). It has a choice of a black or silver cover. The battery recharges very quickly. I've not timed it, but I'd estimate less than 3 hours to go from low battery warning to fully charged. My main complaint is with the alarm component of the reminder feature in the calendar. When I set an alarm to be reminded of a particular item, I only have 2 options: snooze or exit. I wish I had the convenience of an "edit" option as well. As things are, I must exit then go into calendar to edit the item.
