Sam, wait until the display turns dark (in the stand-by mode) or until the digital clock screen saver appears. Then ask someone whose number are stored in certain caller group (ie, Friends or Family) to call you. You may dial from your home, but be sure that your home phone number is added in certain caller group.
The name of the caller, group and group logo appears, but the display still as dark as before (when the screen saver active).
IT'S GONNA BE SO DAMN HARD TO SEE THE DISPLAY.
If your phone doesn't have this problem, you are so lucky, coz the Nokia Customer Care in my city (Jakarta, Indonesia) has confirmed that problem. He said ALL NOKIA 6610 AND 6100 HAVE THAT PROBLEM. MAYBE SOMEDAY WHEN THERE'S A NEW VERSION BLA BLA BLA... I left him right away. Go to hell, I thought.
Another point. The sound quality from the speaker when you use your phone for talking (that's the main function, right?) was very poor, like the sound from a "not so well tuned" radio. Bzz..bzz.. (Far below my previous phone, Siemens ME45).
I'm sorry to say that the only IMPRESSIVE MOMENT during my 6 days with Nokia 6610 was when I got the full refund from the shop.
Hey, if they don't admit this problem, would they gave the refund???
For Nokia, how come you do that, selling a product that has a problem, and tragically, you still sell it even when you know the problem?
You may think that it is just a simple problem, and people in Indonesia buy expensive mobile phone just for fancy and only use some very basic feature so they won't understand the problem. It may be true, but don't you think that you have the obligation to inform your customer before you sell the product, not when they complain to you?
You know what, it's my first Nokia and damn sure will be my last.
For all Nokia Fan, I just want to say, one who has never try firts class Italian restaurant's spaghetty will insist that home made instant noodle is the best meal in the world.
Don't be such a fool. Try SIEMENS.
Budi Dharma, I'm not sure what you mean. My contact's names come up in caller groups when they ring.
Just bought the N 6610 last week. I'm very dissapointed that the phone can't turn the display on when someone in your caller group calls in. I asked the Nokia Customer Care this morning and he confirmed that problem without feeling sorry to sell that invalid fuckin phone. What the use of caller group if you can see who's the caller on your display?Shame on you Nokia, for selling that incomplete phone without informing your customer first. I'm very lucky because I can return that phone this morning.
This mobile is really cool. Its shape and design is much better than the 7210. It is also much better than the 6100 as 6100 doesnt even have FM. It has all the functions and you can also attach camera handsfree with it. You can download java games through it also. If you wanna buy a new mobile then just buy this one.
I have a question: Can u upgrade the software for this phone? and if u can what does it really mean upgrading the software?
here in spain you can get the 6610 with camara for 60 euros if you are a company and if you are private for 130 euros,
the contract last for a year and the minumun calls are 6 euros in a month, this is with AMENA
yeah i agree, it's damn true!!!
6610 is as common as a public phone in Singapore
6100 is certainly better
slimmer,smaller, looks much more classy when comparing with 6610
And dont forget, in singapore, 6610 is a common phone for maids, and toilet cleaners:(
Damn this public phone!!!!!
Well, all the people seem to give the bright side of the picture..... Lets look at some bad things bout the 6610. First the screen isnt that much as its hyped to be..... because almost all the pics cause ,slight to moderate banding and it feels like the screen cant take the pics bits...... The second thing if u've noted is that if u use GPRS or the games for more than 2-3 minutes, the light begins to flicker like theres a little short circuit going inside........ u can note this better while using it in low light conditions......I know these things are rather trivial but these problems existed in the 7210 and should have been corrected in this model.......... Other than this its an cool cell.
Which phone would you recomended me? 6610 or 6100? I can't decide, or do you think that there is a better phone for less money?
but after all, i gotten this because this phone is build with intelligent
come on, this phone is not small at all when compared to 6100, siemens8008 and GD55
Hi everyone this is a q to all the 6610 users out there or indeed anyone who has the appropriate knowledge on the latest nokia phones. If you have a picture of someone on ur phone which you have taken with the camera accessory that you can buy. Can you then make this image come up on display when the person in question rings? i.e. can you use pictures to identify who is ringing you?
cheers for your help
