Just got my 6270 and I have the following issues (am on cingular):
1. 1GB memory card can not be filled with MP3 files. Get to about 620MB and then seems to have file number limit. Had same issue with 6230i.
2. Can not place voice tags and phone generated tags suck.
3. Phone does not let me know of voice message. No icon, no beep.
4. Can not attach downloaded pics to contacts.
This is for Wonder.. Well like i said earlier in the thread.. there is no available FIRMWARE UPDATE for this phone yet.. I waiting for it myself.. i have some glitches to fix..
And yeah.. i will let you guys know and the link on how did i get when it comes out.
I know how to get around on things..
hmm no i didn't had that problem i upload 180 songs to the 512mb card and i had no problem with them, you should check out what you did,
This is most unpleasant: Some of my music files that I have copied to my phone via PC Suite/USB are being corrupted or damaged!!! Only MP3 so far... The Media Player 9 cant play them no more... I mean F**K!!!

Hey gwapz, how do you upgrade your firmware for nokia phone? I search it on internet and the only answer I found is bring the phone to Nokia Care Center to upgrade to latest Firmware.
Great phone, the sound quality is superb. Everything about it is beautiful EXCEPT the plasticky menu buttons.
I can't make up my mind in wat phone to get... I basically just want a phone to take pictures for fun with flash and a kinda good quality pic. Mp3 sound is good and the design of the phone.. Other then that I'm not too fussy and one more thing is that the phone actually works and not stuff up too easily.. and enough memory with sim slot..
So people with this phone.. would u recomend me to buy this or just go for something else??
hey gigi3000 YES i have tried it.. and sad to know it didn't work on me.. yeah nokia sent the settings and i saved it.. but after i saved it and tried it on.. i couldn't connect. this msg pops up.. "Packet data connection not available" i don't know why.. im trying to seek an answer in Howardforums..
i will let you guys know if there an improvement!
I 've just read on howardforums.com that someone got the nokia 6230 settings to set up their wap/mms setting on the nokia 6270...Has anyone tried or heard of this? let me know...Can't do it on mine because i sent it back and am waiting to get a new one in 2 days.Still couldn't send or receive sms and still no voice mail icon notification...
you know you can set video as ringtone!! there is this one of a blue frog... anyone seen it its really funny!!
Another issue with my phone..
When i brwose the phone faster... It constantly hangs and restart itself..
I KNOW THE RULE!! you have to keep up with your phone speed..
sometimes i can't help it!!
Well its no big deal it restarts faster anyway, unlike Symbians.
If this was a Symbian and restarts constantly.. This phone is way to gone.. EBAY!!
Its just annoying!!
Hey Wonder i don't know what your talkin about that FIRMWARE update.. I always did my FIRMWARE UPDATE for the phones by myself.. and yeah i don't have to pay. its part of your support for NOKIA.. i mean its not your fault that the FIRMWARE you have.. have so many glitches.. so that's your support for downoading the latest FIRMWARE update for your phone..
and yeah i have the opposite problem.. I can't get rid of my Voicemail Indicator..
Well Good Luck Selling it!
I just bought this phone 2 days ago, and this is something I want to share!
Screen is so beautiful - Colors, contrast, brightness, cripness, like a real Sony Lcd
Sound is fantastic, you can hear the sound running from left to right, right to left
The signal I think it's better than the K750i I have!
Speed is alot faster than any Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones I have used!
Contact picture is so bad. It only let you set a low quality and small size picture, and that lead to ugly color picture when you got a call from that person. If you try to set a picture 640*480, it says unable to attach. And when it appear, it appear very little at the middle right of the screen, and color is terrible like a painting.
Setting: I search on nokiausa.com and found some setting for this phone (Yes, I said for this phone) to use with Tmobile, Cingular, At&t formal customers... When nokia send out the setting by text messaging, the phone display: Unable to save setting!
Voicemail: I tried so many times, I recorded a voicemail into my mailbox, and the phone NEVER display any icon or a message say that I receive voice mail. This is suck! So if you want to know whether you have voicemail or not, you have to call your voicemail several times a day. I looked in the manual, and there is no icon for voicemail.
Battery life is worst! Charged my phone over 10 hours, after 40 mins talk, 10 mins music, i got 1/3 left
Worst of all, you cannot upgrade firmware by yourself through your computer. You have PAY to get upgrade and you have to bring it to a store.
I think I'm gonna sell this 6270 and get a W900i.
No Fadodz the 6270 is not a Series 60 phone, Its a New UI upgraded Series 40.. So its not a Symbian OS.. Well Nokia softwares comes in platforms the Series 40 which their regular running OS, Series 60 Symbian OS which what nokia calls their smartphones.. and the last one is the Series 80 its mix with both actually Java and Symbian.. well you don't have to worry about that. Why are you getting yourself a Communicator as well? Well basically that's the OS of the Nokia Communicators..
Ok lets get down to business
Well the main dis-advantage of the Series 40 phones are you have very limited source of apps to download, but the advantage is much faster than any OS nokia has..
In Series 60 this is why Nokia calls this platform a Smartphone.. well YES its running under an improved Symbian OS.. Its basically like a computer there are tons of softwares or apps out there for you to download for these phones. (eg.. anti-virus, YM, remote conrol, mp3 player etc) too many to mantion.. trust me there are lots. the main dis-advantage is like a computer it freezes when you go on a certain phase of speed. so basically the Symbian OS is much slower than the Series 40 OS..
I guess that's it. i hope this helps..
to gwapz: my 512MB card is still half in capacity and yes i has 149 images in succession (images001, images002 & so on). You can try it if it will appear in your side. :)..
thanx gwapz... anyway... 1 more thing... is it "not have" symbian opr. system is the main dis-adv? why is it important to have a symbian os in the phone.what is the adv for a phone to have a symbian os? anyone plzzzz...
hey tomtacks.. hmmmnnn really.. didn't know about that.. that's a maybe to me. did you try checking your card if their really in there.. does 149 photos? or maybe your card is full.. i mean what did you store in the 512? that too you know..
Did you happened to observed/noticed this? Am i only experiencing this one? Here it is, When taking pictures and not deleting it until it reaches images149.jpg, the next image cannot be saved anymore. The phone says "unable to save file". How come i guess they are limiting to only 149 pics to be saved then transfer it to your computer. By the way, im using the 512MB as the folder to be saved. :)
