hi andy, actually this phone is almost there.. i dun mind not having the LCD display outside as long as we have some indication that there has been a missed call or unread msg.. sure dun wan to keep opening and closing it to check! i would have tot programming the green LED light outside is easy and nokia shld have tot of that..
anyway, i'm now considering between 6260, 6170 and treo600 for my next buy..
andy214, yes, the price difference for nokia 6260 is indeed approximately rm300 in difference, give or take. the zitron set is priced at rm1350, and ap is selling at rm1100 or slightly less. in some places, the black model is being sold slightly more expensive, because with every 10 sets that comes, only 1 of them is in black. took me actually a few days to find a black one with the right price. anyway, would like to ask, is there any camera softwares available for this phone? i heard it is not possible, is it true? thanks
Better the Zitron ones. Warranty for all parts. Got mine at Starhill for just RM1370. U just got to find the right stall n U gotta have the 'bargain' skill. that's all.
Careful when buying AP models, I heard many complains that their 6260 is faulty, buggy, this and that and blames the phone instead actually the model they get is having problem..
Anyway, are you sure AP and Zitron difference of RM300??? Usually, the difference should be around RM100 or a little more only... Perhaps you should browse around other shop for cheaper Zitron price...
And oh, by the way, getting a ZITRON model entitles you to get ONE YEAR free service and update firmware at Nokia Profesional Centre... AP, you have to pay RM60 each upgrade...
Well,... nothing's perfect... But no doubt that this phone is ALMOST perfect... (not considering one's taste of course as one may not like the look etc...). Based on features and size and other factors, it has almost everything, just lack of some features that might be important for some users, such as, front LCD (which is especially important for usual flip phones users). But then again, I wouldn't know how if the phone will be slightly thicker if they include a front LCD display...
Anyway, as mention before, I believe the biggest drawback is the speaker quality... and camera quality (but camera quality might affect the price heavily)...
Very impressive features but very big size!!!! I wish it was smaller... it doesnt fit in my pocket!!!!
Hey Shanhz =)
Yup, you're right. The phone is impressive but lacks some minor features, but a bit important to some users.
Im actually planning to buy a second flip phone that has an external display. Its really helpful when you can see your phone status without opening the flip you know =)
hi. i'm from malaysia. i've been using the 6260 for almost a week. i think overall, this phone is definately above average, considering the price factor, as it is relatively cheap. however, i do find that the hinge gets loose very fast, after 3 days of use. my phone actually jerks left and right now when it is closed. and the fact that i've been handling it with extra care. and one more thing, i think the audio for realplayer is too loud, even when i set it to the lowest volume, it is still too loud. do you guys experience the same problem? i bought the black one anyway, and it is gorgeous =)
Any body know how to undelete messages? It can be done, the other half did it on my phone...to her horror! now my ex :-/
thanks owen.. seems like the phone is impressive but suffers from small design faults.. wat a pity.
6170 = normal phone, with some extra features. EXPENSIVE!
6260 = SMARTPhone, A LOT OF FEATURES. CHEAP OR VERY WORTH!
Correction to your fact, 6170 is NOT less features compared to 6260, there' a very big difference in terms of features. 6260 is almost like having a Pocket PC + Phone.
To hear MP3 in STEREO, please plugged in the STEREO headset. That's how you hear your RADIO is STEREO. Unplugged it, it willl be MONO...
As for the loudness, it's not really a big issue, in fact, it's an issue for other Nokia Symbian phones where it's NOT loud (too low in fact), you can hardly hear a thing with the phone on the table and volume to the max...
But I agree with you that the volume adjust doesn't seem to be working (correctly)... Perhaps they would fix it in the next firmware, hopefully...
Hi Shanhz =)
No, the LED light will not blink if there's an unread message and will not blink as well if there was a missed call.
Though it does blink if there's an incomming call.
hi could anyone confirm whether the LED light on the front cover would blink when there is an unread sms? I believe it would blink when there is a missed call right? Thanks!
This phone has some good quality but let me mention the bad ones. The mp3 is mono, so not great quality. There is an issue with loudness on this phone. Radio is stereo but mp3 playback is not which is odd. a bit big shape but big screen too.
good side of things: movie quality is decent, very expandable memory. up to 1 gig i believe. pretty decent picture quality better than most phones. easily acessable software to modify phone.
The real big issue is the mono mp3 playback and the loud volume that seems to be too loud even on the lowest setting. Aside from that, this is a very nice stylish phone.
Hey Slavyan =)
Positioning is network dependent.
Ask your mobile service provider if they already have this kind of service and if they do, they'll give you instructions on how to set it up.
Please help me!
I don't know how to use the feature "Positioning" that is installed in my phone. Please somebody help me by explaining me how exactly am I suppoused to control it and is it depended on the network operator?
if you think this phone is cool on its own wait until you try the dvd 2 nokia software in it and your watching full length movies
