Owen, thank you very much for the post. It realy helped me. I want you to know that am away from the idea of using the phone only for calling and typing. I don't think that a man setisfied only by that would care about a phone like nokia 6260 (wich has almost everything). As I mentioned my mother has 6230 and I know that the diference between 6230 and 6260 is huge mainly because of the operation system and I would buy 6260 instead of 6230 even if 6260 didn't have mp3 player at all. As an young man (I'm 15 years old) I wellcome the new technologies and I can't live without them so I think the 6260 is the perfect cellphone for me because when I buy a cellphone I want it to have everything.
Thank you again for the post. If I have more questions I'll ask again. Bye.
i think that the nokia 6260 is a huge step up from the other nokia.I mean, nokia has always had great phones but this phone is the on i like the most.I have the nokia 6225 and im thinking about changing to jthe nokia 6260 if it has a sprint carrier
Hi Slavyan =)
Well, for me i can live with the MP3 having a mono sound (ofcors if its stereo, its a plus).
If you'll buy this phone using the MP3 player as one of the main reason and if you're meticulous when it comes to sound quality, you might not enjoy the MP3 sound (though it isnt so bad).
My friend has 6230 and as far as i know, its MP3 quality is better than 6260 (but then, the 6260 has better interface and more options with regard to installing applications, and some other features).
so i guess it all boils down to the question "what type of user are you"?
if you dont care about added features of a phone and you're just a as-long-as-i-can-text-and-call type of person and considers MP3 as main factor, get the 6230. otherwise, get the 6260.
Visit Nokia shop and try both phones and browse through everything and listen to sound and check camera quality before you buy one. at least you saw it yourself than just basing it on suggestions here. afterall, everyone has its own taste =)
hope this psot helps you.
As I've mentioned a few times, I'm planning to buy this phone in about a month so I am very interested in everything about it. So I saw some of you to say that the mp3 quality is bad (mono), some say that it's not so bad and they can live with it, some say that when you put on the headset it becomes good (stereo). That's why I need comparance. My mother has 6230. I wonna know what's the sound quality of 6260 with the headset compared to the sound quality of 6230 with the headset because I'll mainly listen to the mp3 player with the headset. Also I'd like to know if someone of you knows a Symbian application the can make the sound quality of the mp3s better.
If someone of you has heard both of the cellphones, please, help me!
My opinion is very clear. If u have to play ping pong, but u dont have a racket, just take the 6260 instead. It has the soft side for defense (the display) and the hard side (back) for strike :)). You can actually win.
how can i download a THEMES from the internet?can u gip me the web site?
good to hear that,... yea, I believe most people do know a phone is a phone, just that, if you're paying the same amount for a PHONE and a SMARTPhone, that's a big difference... but since you're getting it for FREE, it' great then... besides, some people might not get used to Symbian or any other SMARTPhones..
BUT, just for a reminder, because many people who bought a non-SMARTphone when they have a choice and later, they saw their *friends* playing with their SMARTphones and all the cool feeatures, they started to regret buying their phones... But, yours is free, so enjoy :)
andy and jb . . . i got the samsung as it was free lol iv gone on contract for first time and the contract is a good one for me plenty of mins texts etc so i got to pick a free phone, yes the nokia has great features comapired to the samsung, but (now im not callin u geeks or anything lol) a phone is just a phone an as long as i can text send pics i dont care lol an the samsung looks really small n cute n as a girl who likes this sort of thing its great for me so . . .*sticks out tounge*
the vga cam is good enough.. but this phone'll be the greatest if they move the keys down, and enlarge the screen.. maybe make it faster.. the rest is all perfect ~
ive always used nokia phones and was very happy...walked into nokia shop ..asked for their best phone 6260...what a rip off...cheap cheap feeling...allthese functions...but the worst buttons....very very.very dissapointed.im trying to get it exchanged now..waiting to hear from them
....forget nokia brand...shop around...i love them...and they screwed behind my back
bad design...dont buy nokia they changed big time
ey Slavyan =)
Yes, you can open applications even in camera mode. I've tried it myself when I read your question.
great phone only thig missing is megapixel cam hope nokia tinks of 6260i like 6230i with better mp3 playback sound like 7710 if any nokia engineer reads this think about this will sure make a bang in market in filpper phone catogery
Andy214, I was just kidding about the games, they were the first thing that came in my mind as an example. My main curiosity was about Photo Acute because since it takes better pictures I'll probably prefer to use it instead of the camera application in 6260.
Anyway, thanks a lot for giving me this information. If I have any further questions I'll ask again.
Everybody which complains about the "Clicking" camera sound when taking pictures...
I don't think there is an option to turn it off,... even for my 6600, if it does, it surely will be removed in later firmware updates...
This is to prevent pervert from snapping *you know what* pictures... I've even read before a rule saying that all camera phones must have flash, but not sure when will it be implemented or they have changed it...
If I'm not wrong, you can, just press the MENU button... Anyway, the CAMERA mode simply RUNS the CAMERA application, if I'm not wrong...
But,... I'm wondering, what games you want to play in CAMERA mode??? Camera games? Like MOSQUITOS?
I wonna ask a very important question (especialy the owners):
When your phone is in Camera Mode can you do whatever you want or you can just take pictures. I mean can can you use other applications like games or Photo Acute for example.
I beg you to answer me soon because I'm planning to buy this phone and it's very important for me to know this.
PHOTO ACUTE is a program with which you can take pictures with resulution 1.3 megapixels (1280x960) although your camera is VGA (640x480). It also makes the colour quality of the picture much better. If you write your e-mail I can send it to you (if you want of course).
