I own a nokia 6170 and i can say it's an excelent phone, the only think i hate is the way to small memory.. at least they could feature it with a memory card slot.. :(
Also, i have an infrared cable but i can't move pictures from the phone to my pc only viceversa
At the price i aquired it, i coul;dn't find a better solution.
Oh, another thing.. the battery doesn't last that much ..
I cannot receive picture messages or send them. Optus sends me a message saying go to www.optus.com.au/viewmms. I spent an hour trying to view it and I still did not get to have a look at the picture message. Why is my phone not set up with this program from factory? Thanks I would appreciate it if I got some usefull info make.
it's a good phone, no doubt. I had it for a year, it could have lasted longer had I not misplaced it. Easily scratched though, so it's better if the outer protection covering is not removed. The key pads are large enough to make messaging easy and the camera's good. Just that when you zoom in, the picture becomes blurred. The memory is super little though, and it doesn't support mp3 tones.
is the screen held in with glue or something??? cuz i dunt want to bend it or anythin when i do take it off.
also has anyone not been able to upload pics back onto the fone???
It's a quite decent phone, very expensive though. A good friend of mine has it and she's not very pleased with it because of its almost unexistent memory, photos have very good quality but the design (although it's simple and nice)it's quite bulky. The menu is ok, but for me (i own a SE K300)it's a bit confusing, i think the k300 menu is easier. I only recommend this phone to those who don't care about spending too much on a cellphone (it's really expensive here in mexico) only because of its looks. : (
6170 is a nice phone....... picture quality is really good... if it only has bluetooth, more memory and a radio then it'll be a perfect phone...!!
Yeh I've managed to get the dust out of the lens. You gotta buy a screwdriver to open up the case and then clean out the dust. The screws are located on the inside top screen. There are two round plastic covers that are attached at the bottom of the screen so just pull them off using a needle.
anyone manage to get the dust from the lens?... I can't take pictures anymore as the lens is full of dust
mmm I got this phone about a year ago. It's a great phone and all, but when you scratch it, it looks pretty ugly. And sometimes, you get dust inside the camera lens and you can't take it out so it makes your picture blurry and crap. But overall, it's a nice phone. And well worth what it costs.
I dont like automatic picture naming on this phone... When you photograph pictures, phone automatic give it names like picture001, picture002, picture003... Problem is when I transfer pictures on computer and delete it from phone and want to picture another. Phone reset its name information and start counting from zero. Then pictures have same names like pics before; picture001, picture002, picture003. And when i transfer them on computer i must rename it all because they have same names...
hi;ive seen some of you asked about transfer pic to pc,6170 has infrared also has cable and it also has a manager for that in cd.secondly every phone has its capabilities i think the design is perfect and it works graet so if you want memory or... go for other models.third, i think you want a mobile phone which looks great and works properly if you want a camera go for digital camera because you know that even 2 megapixel mobilephones dont have a good quality also mp3 player.
so dont think about these things because someday you will find asimple beautifull phone is everything like 6170.
i want to know how can i transfer pictures from my nokia 6170 on my pc...please help me..i guess i need a cable,right?thx
Goods: Same familar Nokia interface.
Infrared interface to PC suite works great to synch w/Outlook.
Bads: Shuts off all by it's self sometimes, screen gets scratchs from it's own keypad!, it's too heavy, block like design. Parts? simply not available even from Nokia....ie cover. No bluetooth
Conclusion: NEXT cell phone please...
yeah definately the memory space is WAY too small, you can only put a few pictures on at highest quality which isnt really that high.
The design is really cool though. sexy steel design
