this is excellent piece i like the features of this mobile specially the looks . its a classic looks and can win the customers confidence very easily but you should mentioned the price too as it plays a very important role to increase the sale .
Thanks John, I think I'm going to persevere too cos everything else about the phone is excellent. Just one other fault I've noticed - I have 'Instant messaging' listed twice in my messages menu. If I select the bottom one it takes me to the relevant menu, whereas the top one switches the phone off and on. Obviously related to the first fault but not sure how!
this phone is really good!! i got it today and btw it actually supports mp3 !! so i got true tones...teh ringtone the graphic is superb but not the external lcd the colour is too weak while the camera is too sensitive to light but its not a cam its a phone!!so overall i think most tof the users can grade a 8/10 for this phone..great phone nice design..too bad no radio even or its great reception.. nice price too..
My bro uses the 6170 and is very impressed and the camera really dosnt do justice to the phone.It is a very excutive looking handset.Hope there are more coz im very intrested...
I imported this phone and it works great with Fido Canada. The photos don't do this phone justice, it's one very sexy gadget.
-big number buttons, no accident key presses
-user friendly interface
-great looking main lcd
-easy transfer through IRD
-Not made by Nokia but actually BenQ
-outer lcd has weak colors even for a 4k lcd
-outer lcd could use a lit clock
-casing loves fingerprints
What really suprised me about this phone the most is the amazing reception. No phone, and I repeat, NO PHONE ever had adequate reception at my home. By adequate I mean good enough to even hold a conversation for 10seconds ^^. This phone has no problems with that, infact the reception is strong. Transfering files from my pocketpc to the Nokia was a snap. Camera is ok, don't expect great quality but it's good just in case you need a quick shot. Don't find space a concern, this is not an MP3 player and I don't need 1000 wallpapers....just 2, one for the big lcd and one for the small. It's a cell phone, not a multimedia center.
I've had same problem, Dawn (see my previous post). I've had latest one about four weeks and it's turned itself off twice in that time.
Hasn't done it for a while, and I love the phone so much I'm going to persevere with it for a while yet!
Love the phone but screen blanks out & phone turns itself off. Is this rare, should I stick with the phone? Am waiting for my 3rd replacement as soon as Vodafone get some more in cos apparently it's being discontinued???
Is the lack of memory really annoyting someone? is it enough for a few pictures and how many sms'es? i have N5100 now, stores up to about 150 sms. (in and outgoing, but i alwaus delete the sent ones)
i'm serieusly thinking about purchasing this phone... i love the sleek steel look of it, the clamshell with outher display, the cleancut numeric pad...
should i buy it or not?
it's 245€ (about 270USD)
good solid phone, lets face it anythings gonna be better than an o2 x3! was told at 4 diff phone shops you cant send pics to a kodak machine for example thru the infrared cos of a software prob and i nearly didnt buy it, but you CAN send pics thru infrared-dont listen to the link, dixons etc lol. lack of memory is annoying as is mp3 but ive sacrificed that just to get a sodding phone that doesnt crap up all the time (02 and ericcson take note!) no probs so far at all, very reliable and the best phone i have had for reliability since prob about 1998. it is worth paying more for a nokia you know you are getting the best, hoping they are gonna bring out a similar with mp3 and megapixel-v pleased overall even tho it was essentially a 'downgrade' from my last 2 phones.
Can you make the Nokia 6170 show a picture of the caller on the external screen when someone calls you?
PTT is a radio service, it works just like a walkie talkie or a 2 way radio (you have to press a button to talk, and release it so the other guy can talk)... NEXTEL offers that same service in the USA and in Latin America, but only with ugly, bulky motorola radios.
PTT is something like SMS, but you don't type text, you can talk something and send it by pressing the PTT button to the person in your contactlist.
Excellent phone, it is reliable, looks chic and like most Nokias it has is user friendly. What is the push to talk all about?
Getting this phone next week. Does it really smudge with fingerprints easily? If so, might have to wear gloves lol
Great looking fone,but video on mine is very floaty/fluid around the edges,is this normal on the 6170?
If this is faulty Iwill get it exchanged.
Could someone let me know how theirs is. Thanks
Great phone if you're looking for something basic, reliable and easy to use. As for problems, screen blanking out switching off etc....... it's usually caused by faulty chargers. (happened to me in the past) when you take back the phone also replace the charger, and you'll find you'll have no more probs.
