yeah the 6265i is a CDMA phone and is not even a 3G cdma phone... and regarding the previous comments... well you buy phones from the carrier if you want the data services to work correctly... just FYI if you buy an unlock phone and is not a cingular supported phone and try to download anything from our site... well the site will say you can't go any further cause your phone is not compatible so i woulnd't suggest buying phones out side of carriers i mean IF you like a challenge and have the extra time and energy then go ahead...
Its not de 6265i silly
Dat's another phone
Can't wait till de 3250 is out
According to Nokia USA..
This phone is called the Nokia 6265i
Who cares about CINULAR!!
I mean I have Cingular Service, but I haven't bought any phone from them..
I mean who buys phones from Cingular??
WELL GUYS BAD NEWS! the FCC finally approved this phone and the N80 to be sold in the USA but Cingular SAID "HELL NO" and send them back... Nokia failed to provide cingular with both 850/1900 UMTS bands on those models, they only provided the 1900mhz which cingular make quite clear it wasn't going to buy any phones which only handled one band. So nokia is going back and twiking the model to provide the enhansements. Most likely the model number will change also. So is going to take longer then we expected to see this phone in the stores!
whats the point in having a 6282 upgrade to a 6280 thats worse? wierd hugh...
seriously though, y is it worse?
This is for Jaros
Who said anything this phone having a Symbian OS?
NO!! This phone is a Series 40 platform phone. Its an American Version of the 6280 phone, but less features.
If your looking for a Symbian slider phone.. Wait for the N80..
T-Mobile will always stay the same.. Due to the lack of power in the US! The only way T-Mobile would be big in the US if it merge with a big company like Sprint or Verizon..
Well I don't think It would merge with Verizon because Vodafone owns Verizon Wireless, and Sprint just recently merge with Nextel.. So T-Mobile is T-Mobile ain't goin down and ain't goin up either.
T-Mobile was given a chance to bid on AT&T wireless.. They blew it! They lose to Cingular!
That is why you see a slow phase on T-Mobile Development..
Besides T-Mobile is one of the biggest company in the GSM world..
T-Mobile is BIG in europe!!
This is for cingular_rep
Wow... never even knew that. All I know is that 3G technology uses 2 bands.. The Uplink and the downlink.. I guess they will use 1900 as their uplink and 850 as their downlink.. or maybe the other way around.
Im just upset with Cingular!! They are selfish.. Im sorry to say that but I have my reasons..
Cingular only wants you to buy phones from them.. They don't want people buying phones that are made for the european market. No wonder they use different frequency here in the US to be separated from the world..
I have a 6680.. now I wouldn't be able to use my 3G technology because my phone only have 2100Mhz UMTS..
That's not cool!!
Ever heard about the rumor about the N80??
Cingular was interested in getting the N80, until they found out it has WiFi.. Which means they would loose money in urban areas.. and have you ever heard of skype free calls.. that too.. so Cingular had decided to banned the phone until they get rid off the WiFi tech!!
Isn't that selfish??
Guys I just checked Tmobile's website and EVERY SINGLE PHONE NOW SUPPORTS 850MHZ. They pretty much dropped the 900mhz which is useless in the USA and very weak as a band anyways. 850mhz is here to stay! sorry! lol
yep you are absolutely right we are going to be using 1900mhz and 850mhz. We are probably going to favor the 850 side of it cause like it said before the signal goes farther so we can put up less towers. And actually CINGULAR "WAS" the only carrier in the U.S. that use the 850mhz but Tmobile has recently started to buy some 850 spectrum. If you notice most of their new phones support this new band....850 is mostly use in the USA with a few exeption in latin america. 850 is more cost effective specially if that country is as big as USA and has alot of RURAL states as we do. Recently cingular told NOKIA that we will only buy phones if they have BOTH the 3G 850/1900mhzif they only had the 3G 1900mhz band then we wouldn't bother with that model NO EXPETIONS which strengthens my theory of our commitment to the 850mhz band...
this seems to be a good phone. i have rant on US gsm and 3g frequencies though. I live here in the US and my dad works for Nokia networks here, he says that the US is totally bullshit when it comes to cellphone technology. I hate having different frequencies on phones. Its irritating. Yeah.. blame those selfish American Repulicans
I thought US is goin to be using 1900Mhz UMTS?
Why do you say 850Mhz? Isn't that the GSM frequency of Cingular?
Kindly explain pls.
3g in the us on the cingular network is going to be used mainly for c-video and high internest speeds with umts. this phone has it all! awesome phone to be lunched in Feb
Hi guy, first of all there is a reason why we are launching 850mhz 3g in the usa and why we use mostly 850gsm. This band travels longer and penetrates buildings alot better then 900mhs and 1900mhz. So specially in the country is a must to have. Another reason is because we can put up less towers and cover more area thus being cost effective and focusing our money in releasing a more reliable network. Think of this when you fall of the Sprint/verizon EVDO network you fall on 1xt or something like that which is a really slow 1st generation data standard. When you fall of our 3g UMTS/hsdpa network you fall onto our NATION WIDE EDGE network which is between dialup and dsl speeds so when we do things we do it right... give us about 5 more months and we will have 3g nation wide will the other carriers are still putting up "HOTSPOTS" and about Tmobile they aren't even finished with edge yet so don't even think about 3g for another 2-3 years.... call them and ask them... they will tell you that straight up.... always a pleasure...peace
This is for almu
Better phones where? MEXICO??
you gotta be kidding me.. Get yourself a taco! and kiss a chupacabra!
This is for Ru..
Europe and Asia has 2100Mhz UMTS frequency, So all phones decided to only put 2100Mhz on their phones. which all nokia 3G phones have..
US is totally new to 3G technology. Because of selfishness they decided to go for another frequency which no country have. The 1900Mhz UMTS frequency. They are selfish that they don't want americans to be buying phones in europe to use in american soil. They said it will hurt the american market.. So in order for company to keep up in their business in america.. They launch this 1st Nokia 3G phone.. to compete here.
That's really selfish right? don't you guys think?
So beware Nokia 3G phones right now will not work in america 6280, N70, N90, 6680 etc.. will not work in the US. only this 6282 but its not out yet.. so i guess we have to wait!
