Okay people. I am working on the third 6555 in 7 months(fourth Nokia total) from warranty. Frankly, Nokia shouldn't brag on their phones AT ALL. I previously had the 6102 Nokia (same piece of junk in a different shape). All have had the problem of turning off at random, one kept dropping calls at random, and this one sometimes won't pick up a call (it lights up, but doesn't ring, vibrate, or even say incoming call). I am not hard on phones, do not expose them to harsh environments, I just flat out do not abuse phones. I moderately use my phone (no texting or internet...just talk). I depend on my phone all of the time and Nokia has been a disappointment for me. Some people might not have troubles as bad as I do, but I cannot truly trust Nokia brand again. AT&T promised me that I could get another brand phone if this next one gives me trouble. For God's sake....DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE AT ALL! AVOID IT!!!!
great phone, very easy to use, but as other comments mentioned before the battery life is very poor - it needs charging every 2 days or so....

I'm a brazilian user, so forgive errors in this post. I buy one 6555 and it's very good, but one thing is not so good: the battery. It don't have a good charge. Or, in others words: the charge don't have long duration, endurance. Only just 2-3 days.
[in pt-br]: a carga da bateria dura pouco, uns 2-3 dias.
his battery is wonderful,i have listen the music for 6 hours and his battery will never shut off.The 6555c la omandava lo perro
Hi folks! Thanks to your opinions I just dropped an order I'd made for a Nokia 6555.
This mobile is very attractive but seems to have a faulty project.
I bought one in july 2008. ıt never shuts down. I have no problem with this phone.
Im not usually a writing person but i have to write something important about the 6555. I also bought one in June 2008 and it seems the turning off problem is everywhere, mine used to turn off randomly and the most annoying when i was typing sms and i had to write them again. About the battery after 15m conversation i felt the keypad was really hot and even buying a new battery it didnt get better. I thought it was a single problem but from the comments ive read it seems something's wrong with the model itself. Nokia Portugal doesnt have it in stock so after 3 months and 2 repairs they gave me another model.
In Pt the phone cost me 195eur, so its not that cheap:/

As stated by an earlier entry, this phone is a piece of crap, hot on face after 10-15 minutes of talk time, turns off whenever it feels like it, speaker breaks very easy so now I can't understand the caller, camera takes crappy pictures. when plugged into a computer you can get to most items on the phone without any software though.

I have this phone and i can honestly say it's a piece of crap. You can be talking on the phone for like 10 mins and the phone is already burning your face off, and it shuts off whenever it feels like to.
I have a rather old SIEMENS, with the same behavior!
Two years ago, I performed "surgery": with some cotton swabs and a drop of alcohol (Russian VODKA) I cleaned the battery/phone plated contacts... WORKED!
(I did-it again this summer: too much moisture!)
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2008Do not dare to get nokia 6555!it turns off when it feels like, and you simply can't trust it!b... moreit's true, i have exactly the same problem as you... i don't recommend to buy this phone because of this...but i go to a shop of my brand, fix that problem that you describes and now works perfectly...(it has to be in warranty)
strictly as a phone is very complete and have good price/quality relation...
this phone sucks. i bumped it off a table thats like 2 feet high and the battery fell out. put the battery back in now the piece of trash wont even turn on. GG nokia.

ab, 17 Feb 2008hi, does anyone know how many texts this phone can store? thanksyes it can store up to 3000
Dont make the mistake of buying this phone! Battery is cr*p and just like the 6131s & co., it switches itself of whenever it feels like it!
I already changed firmware twice and nothing can solve this problem as (according to Nokia), is some level 3 hardware problem bullsh*t!
