nokia must fix earpiece volume problem because though volume at max level, insufficient voice unfortunately!
OK, so I've had it for 4 days now... Still finding things I love about this phone, but still finding problems too:
Firstly, to avoid the sluggish menu scrolling/program opening, I found it best to leave programs open and just revert back to the standby mode desktop with the programs effectively still 'running'. This makes it a lot quicker to go back to them (obviously I'm only keeping the regularly used programs open - calendar, gallery, text message/email, conacts, calculator and contacts - other programs that don't get used that often don't really need to be on standby). Also, Nokia Lifeblog is fantastic, and a really easy and creative way to syncronise the lifestyle element of one's use of this phone. I recommend this for anyone who has this phone and wishes to use it in conjunction with their PC or Laptop.
But there are some issues I've had: On Sunday I was playing about with the Video Editor - great piece of softwear, if you use it (I personally will be using my PC to edit any films, due to the speed and use of a mouse, etc...). Anyway, at one point it the program crashed so I chose to exit to the standby screen to try and terminate the application from there - however, after trying this the phone completely locked up forcing me to restart the phone (it allowed me to turn it off rather than taking out the battery). Then a few hours later I had a similar 'application shutdown' problem with both Gallery and Go To, which subsequently forced me to restart the phone twice more. I have not encountered any of these problems since, however I'll be paying close attention as I'm still only on day 4 of my 14 day calling-off period to end a new contract for any dissatisfaction.
I still love this phone a great deal, but it has become apparant that there are a few stability issues - my advice is maybe wait for confirmation on this O2 release which sounds like they're holding back for a more stable unit.
Hiya, just to share my problems with this phone. taken from post iv posted in other fourms
Just got my 6680, nice phone..I got myself a 256 mem card, backed up old card to pc with card reader, formated 256 in phone, copied off pc to 256 card. Photo's vanished, but by what i have read on here im not the only one.
My main problem is that I cant send or install any big files to mem card(mp3 or 3g vids) comes up with errors. i can use card reader to transfer mp3's ect but not bluetooth or data cable.. works to main mem but not mem card... any ideas? phone version is v 2.05.15
i rang nokia today about this problem and they told me that the 6680 only supports upto 128meg and thats why i have the problems that i do! they did tell me to get the firmware flashed to sort the vanishing
hey people how much it the 6680 i wont 2 no because i really really wont it but hav to find out how much it is first can us plzz tell me plz thanx
Yeah i have heard there have been a few probs with the 6680 so hopefully o2 delaying will prevent errors occuring. O2 did suggest to me to get the ericsson k75oi phone but i really wasn't interested as i like the look & specs of the 6680 :-) so i guess i will have to keep waiting for this amazing phone, hopefully its worth waiting for!
he lil_lanny, it could work out better that o2 release the phone later, because there wont be as many errors or problems like in the earlier releases on 3, oh and o2 do sell the k750 which was not only announced at the same time but cam out earlier on o2 than any other network, so if o2 can bring out the k750 earlier than any other network how come they are the last to release the 6680
I recently purchased this phone but it only shows two languages.. Is there a way to add other languages? If so can someone explain how to do this.. thanks
Yes i agree dragon. I've been waiting for this phone to come out on o2 for months and they keep delaying it -when are they going to realese it, i want it so much! :(
is it just me or do o2 in the uk seem to be incapable of releasing this phone, it was set to come out in April
I bought my Nokia 6680 today... I live in the UK, and my phone is on the 3 network.
First impressions are that this is a clever phone, that has the ability to do a great deal. It feels kinda heavy, but erganomically it feels good to hold - especially the slide down rear camera cover. The reception I have received is pretty good; 3 hasn't got very reliable reception where I live: I used to have the Nokia 7600 which I found had diffuculty in picking up 3G reception - other people with the same phone, same network had similar problems. However with this phone, the reception is great.
Only a couple of problems - it reacts like a slightly sluggish PC (rather than a phone) when scrolling through the menus (probably as it has only got 10 MB of internal memory). The other thing is the menues are a lot different to other Nokias, which are taking a little longer to learn than I expected!
o2 are now saying will be out 15th june, keep messing me about telling me different dates, and i really want this phone
I think Sony Ericsson Z800 is better than this.It also has 3G.Nokia can't use ScreenSaver set as wallpaper but Sony Ericsson can.I think Nokia is not very gud 2 buy this cheap phone.
Good work Nokia company this is your first 3G phone, but i hope your company will cut down the unbelieve able price. Now i am a Alcatel fans. The first reason i become Alcatel fans is because it price is quite good second is quality is better than Nokia. Its phones are high technologi than Nokia, but i know Nokia phones are upgrade able. The only weak point of Nokia company is the price i hope you will cut down it.
i wish to buy this phone! it's a very good phone, but for now is very, very expensive! i hope only for now!
There is a new Firmware version for the Nokia 6680..
There are lot improvements...
