OK guys, Gps is free its gprs that you pay through your network for,However some Gps software does connect through the phones gprs connection to get traffic updates,now this is chargeable, So rule of thumb Gps not chargeable; GPRS Chargeable
You do not have to pay for GPS. Its free on this phone, you only have to pay for maps. It should come supplied with the appropriate maps for the country you buy it from, so in theory you only buy extra maps if your going to travel out the country.
Its currently priced at £299.99 + for the UK (sim free) but this may change.
For everyone wondering why its got a 2mp camera, and no wifi etc its because they are keeping the cost down. This is supposed to be an entry level phone with GPS, so whatever features they add is a bonus.
If you want GPS and a huge MP camera with wifi, etc etc thats what phones like the N95 are for.
If it wasn't for the sub 4h battery time - this would have been one of the best phones...
Does GPS work ALL AROUND THE WORLD (for free???) or is it a service that you need to pay your service operator??
The big question finally answered...
After extensive research one has found the release date to be July 2007!!!
Still a couple of months left
I actually used the phone the other day and it is fantastic, this will be a hudge seller wont be much longer nokia should have it in stores in Australia in about 7 weeks, navigator function on it is awesome
The big question seem to be:
When can we see the phone in our pockets?
Can some one clarify this please?
This device comes with built-in GPS and maps and works independently from any operator right in Your hand.
If You want to track the device from a website, well, yes: then You need to find a provider for such service (e.g. fleet tracking)
When is it coming out? Good Question!!! I rang Nokia as well as other leading network providers…none of them can give a definite date. In this day and age that is poor.
The CarphoneWarehouse advertised it in their April magazine stating that it will be out in May. But now that I look in the May magazine it seems to completely have disappeared.
Well everyone have a question about this phone for using gps on it and will they have to subscribe for it after puchasing the mobile through gps operators?Does gps depends upon network whether the ntwork provides the service or not?Can we have maps of any city and can it work in every country i mean gps????Will it work in Lahore,Pakistan.
So anyone who knows about all these in detail please reply soon as i have confusions about it...
As to GPS, the phone has the capability for GPS locator systems, however, you'd have to subscribe with a GPS provider to be able to use GPS on the phone.
ammm can somebody tell this GPS alrite but is it free or it isn`t because this is the main reason to buy this phone ??? because if it`s payable is better to buy 6288 which cheeper :)
the phone looks good.....got good features...but the battery life is poor....
the bigger question is when will it be launched in the indian markets...n..wat wud be its price band??
i pay $100 more for symbian and good UI, not for the name.
SE is cool, but in UI is confusing sometime, yet too simple, you cant do much with it IMO
If SE come out with a symbian gps phone, i will go for it.
When is it coming out ? It takes too long that waiting becomes a problem end up buying sony ericsson which to are superb and some even better then nokia. Sony ericsson will one day beat nokia as their are better sony ericsson even now if checked i.e camera quality, batterie life and much more wake up sleeping nokia lovers why be coned just for the name nokia you pay $100 just for the name. God please help the blind nokia buyers.
