the problem with mp3 quality is the headset- they arent good. Nokia are a phone maker not a headset maker. See if you can get an adapter to a 3.5 mm stereo socket, I think I've seen them for the phone. However what I've done is bought a 4Gb mp3 player which uses the same battery as the Nokia, battery life is good so it doesn't eat into the Nokia's fairly low battery life. And it means I'm carrying a spare phone battery for times it's needed.
cosmin_romania- your comment about the battery- it is very easily available, and cheap too. You can pick one up on ebay for just a pound- three with carriage. It's BL-4C. Mind you battery life for this phone is not that good compared to many others- they are only rated 760mAh - it's quoted at about 6 days standby, but really drops when you use all the features like bluetooth etc.
kunkehs comment about 44k frequencies has no relevance whatsoever- apart from being plain wrong- even cats can't hear such high frequencies never mind humans. And as you get older the higher limit of your hearing drops too.
The sound frequency output is NOT what he has quoted, the 44,100 frequency is the sampling rate- something entirely different. He has absolutely no real understanding of mp3's. If you want to get reliable advice ignore his post- it's plainly wrong.
What do you expect from a 0.6" speaker in the rotation part of this pocket- size phone. To listen mp3files you can listen using headphone or other device perhaps.
Rupesh , the phone can take a maximum of 16000hz , while the quality of mp3 is about 44000hz. so its almost no treble at all!
Great handset, i used it for 2.5 years! too bad it isn't for sale anymore. Easy to use but camera imaging is very slow.

This phone sucks. I was never so disappointed in Nokia. There are at least 3 ongoing issues with the phone; 1, while writing a text message sometimes the phone pops up a message that says application failure ok? you then have to hit ok and now your text messaga is gone!! and you have to start over. 2. It deletes msgs randomly,despite the settings some msgs in my inbox disappear in less time than the settings are set for. 3. The dictionary feature for sms is annoying, you can only add words to the dictionary that are spelled 'correctly' so you cant add 'thx' and have the auto dictionary show it-- net you have to tap it manually. Other things about the phone are nice like the camera and display -- but tooooo many annoying malfunctions!1
This phone is very nice nothing compare to this phone i never seen any ohne like that
I have been using this phone for over a year now. Awesome phone no problems at all except it get hanged when i reveive a call. But this is very rare and i can live with it. Apart from this, two thums up :-)
Does anyone know why the mp3 quality is terrible, even through headset (stadndered nokia)
I'm using this phone since 2005. Average daily talk-time: 3 hrs. Stand-by time: 3 days. Medium phone, no problems at all.
i occasionally got this mobile, but now its 2 years passed,i am using it. Smart and movable screen with easy functions make it distinctive from others.
one of the best phone i have
been using for 2years
still in good condition ..
thumbs up for this phone
My Opinion on the Nokia 6260
-very powerful phone
-best battery life I've seen
-can change the screen's position for comfort
-comfortable for people with large hands
-horirbly desgined power button
-hard to navigate with the directional pad
-wish the light indicator blinked when I have a call instead of just when charging
When I first got it my first impression was it was bulky, and honestly I did not find the functionality of the twist very "functional". so what if I can twist it? the camera is a vga cam and below average quality. I like how the phone had a lot of power and could be used to read microsoft word , powerpoint, and pdf, but that is all software. Now onto the hardware:
The battery life was beyond anything for it's time. The screen size was very comfortable and positioning the screen so it was towards you was very comfortable as awell and a veyr nice touch by nokia. The number keypad was large and I loved it ( I have some what large hands), the grip was nice even tho it's still bulky but comfortable as well. The only main flaws in the hardware was the directional pad (the joystick if u will) , very hard to use, some times u press it and u don't know if u pressed it or not and with time its pressibility deteriorated. Ahh the power button , the worst thing about this phone, after about a year from using this phone, the power button became very hard to press since it started sinking inside. to the point where I'd have to press very hard with a pen to make it turn on or off. till the point where the button stopped working completley. I had to go fix it which cost me about $50 since they replaced the screen as well (which started to have these lines, I concluded that the screen got damaged since the phone is a flip phone, where there is mechanical movement there is wear and tear. every time u closed the phone u impacted it and that somehow affected my screen, now mind u I take very good care of my phone, and again was surprised from this phone.)
I had this phone for a short while after I wanted it for years. I liek the style and the twist for the camera, and it was my first flip phone I was impressed with the handset however it his slightly flimsy and can be easily broken. Care is required and not advised for a heavy user or construction use.
