It will be very similar to this phone. 6220 that you had has S60 OS - that's why you liked it better. If you like slide form factor, get N85 - it's about the same price as 6260. But sliders are about to be replaced with the side-sliders - that way you can be more productive with writing e-mails, etc... So if you want to future-proof your purchase - get E75 or 5730XM. The last one seems to be in your price range.
seriously amazing handset with all unqiue features and worth buying. In fact, it is perfect deal for every mobile user.
All fine, but what is the problem with the battery time? is a copy from 2006 model?
hot hot hot...this phone is so cool its totally worth the buy
Have had this phone a few days now. I bought it as a sim free and having some problems with internet service. Love the look and feel of the phone but was hoping it would be simular to 6220 but its not. Menus not as deep, keep looking for things and running into dead ends. Biggest problem for me is the time-out which is only 10 seconds. Contacted Nokia support and was told this could not be changed. Finding this a nightmare. Allround I prefer the 6220 classic however I like slide phones. Going to sell 6600i and try the 6260 slide instead.
The Nokia 6600i slide is a great phone. From experience, this phone has a great receptivity. I chose this phone because its design is attractive, classic and sleek. Moreover, the slider is smooth. The SAR value is rather low - 0.35kw/g. The ringing volume is way much better than Nokia 6300.
Of course, all phones are not perfect. As I am so used to Nokia 6300, I miss having the blue light signal alert for missed calls or messages which the 6600i doesn't have. The phone's metal body gets hot after 10 mins of usage. This phone is quite heavy and so text messaging can involve a bit of a balancing ability of the fingers when texting with one hand.
In all, I feel that the Nokia 6600i is great phone. From its appearance, it looks as if it were a combination of Nokia 6500 slide and Nokia 6280. :)
Smooth Operator, 07 Aug 2009Nice Phone ... Delicate system ... fashion style ... and up to date ( new release ) ... ya nice very nice
The phone is very slow and uncomfortable to hold. The softkey and call/hang up buttons are too small for my thumb. The camera isn't great either eventhough it's 5mp with auto focus. The pics are snot sharp at all. The battery life is ok but not great. I'd give 6 out of 10 points and it's a disappointment for me.
i think its very good cause Nokia phone last long, its not every day people have to buy a new phone, so Nokia keep making good long lasting phones.
