For all those complaining about the infra-red capabilities on this phone:
It is six years old now! This was designed primarily as a business phone, therefore the only infrared capbilities the handset natively supports is the sending and receiving of contact details ("Business cards") and calendar entries and memo's.
With a laptop and driver software the IR port can also be used as a wireless modem (back in the days before widespead wi-fi usage).
It cannot be used to send/receive multimedia content to other phones.
Within its limitations this is a great phone with excellent battery life and is very quick to charge even after six years of use. The camera is basic (VGA) and not suited to anything but close-ups and GPRS internet is slow. It is a phone for calling people, and calling people is what it does well.
my father had nokia 6610i.....

Well Infrared in this set does not allow to transfer mms,pictures,videos etc. It only allows contact transfer through IR. I have been using this cell from last 6 years..bought it way back in 2004(Last Quarter)...Status is discontinued though but i still love this one :)
I have Hand on experiance of many phones like LG, SAMSUNG, PHILIPS, MOTOROLA, BenQ, NOKIA.
The great among all phone i liked is Nokia 6610i,
6610i is really a Mater piece,
The way the Phone OS is designed and the way the phone handles the data is really superb, I have not yet seen such phone, you will find many featured pones today, but really perfect features packed in a single phone will not b found, I guarantee u this, you can store number of messages and hide it where ever you want and many more..............
i like this phone. its old but i find it fitted for its primary purpose, calls and texts... very hand and unlike new phone models today the shape is great.. good for texting... one of the oldies but goodies of nokia.. until now i still use it as my third phone.. cheers to nokia 6610i

I am using this 6610i since May 2005, its pretty nice phone, til date i get 2+hrs tlk time, problem with Infrared,never worked for me from day 1.nice quality n useful set.
We share the same problem. My Nokia 6610i is working with calls nad messaging. I am happy with it not until finding its infrared sending and receiving capabilities as NOT working.
I can the InfraRED ON. It shows in the status bar but i cant send and recieve pictures thru IR. help anyone?
" I am using this phone for a almost 5 years now, there's really nothing more i could wish for, - I do love doing group messages for quotes and updates and such stuffs like that so I'm thankful for the distribution list feature, I get to download java games (way back when I still have the access to wap for free- toinks!), I can do picture editings, but for one thing, - infrared isn't working or doesn't really work. everytime I try to send an mms via infrared, I just can't. is it an add up application or system to use or for nothing?
