just a little tip for all those who are experiencing battery problems with v40.
The main issue is that the menu, does not exit and remains open all the time, thus killing the battery within 24 to 36 hours with little usage.
The solution: install handy taskman, and let that be your task manager, not only can you kill all application open, you can easily move between application just by clicking on its icon.
after install this application and a full charge
41 hours standby [ 3 bars was left]
1 hour internet
30 minutes apps that's use the internet [ i.e trip adviser, ap,etc]
30 minutes phone calls
accessing calendar, writing notes
2.5 hours listening to music [from previous experience, for some reason playing videos, draws more battery power, probably the processing of video]
One further way to close the menu feature is to click on options [in the menu page] and click exit from there to exit the menu.
as for no future updates, i am sure a lot of developers can create custom roms, and why not create a app store like cydia. which is in place for apple.
My only issue left is reducing the processing time when taking images, this being my 1st real nokia, and to be honest i am loving it [who would of guessed, all symbian needed was more ram, to be productive]
wen i tried to update my phone. it is showing tat "server certificate is untrusted".how to fix tis problem.anyone help me
Hi friends.. I have been using nokia C6-00 since dec 2010. Really good build quality,dropped few times by mistake but really strong.. Touchscreen sometimes is not that responsive and sometimes hangs on you. But honestly phone hangs occurs rarely when you open too many apps at the same time.
Music player is good. Loud speaker output is decent.
Camera - I am really impressed. 5 Mp with LED flash is superb.Have good few photo options though i use only default settings.
Video recording is equally good. No complaints here.
Cons- It does not support .avi and other popular video codecs. Only mp4 is available by default.
Updates - As of today no more updates i guess. My last update was V42.0.04. Nokia provides updates from c6-01 onwards..
Hope this helps you in making your decision.
Tnx guy. I recently got mine n it's features r realy kul but it refuces to download. Whenever i try to download, it writes 'download failed'. Pls where do i set it from to allow 4 downloads?
The worst phone..whn one problem is fixed other arises..i hd problem wid touvh screen replaced it and now there is a problem with the front camera whn i try to use it it shows a black screen if ne 1 knws d reason pls pls pls tell me....firstname.lastname@example.org
As a phone, the C6-00 is fine to use, albeit a little insensitive on the touch screen.
However, if you're interested in keeping the phone's software up-to-date, skip this phone.
Nokia has stated quite clearly in several forums that the last software update is version 40 of the Symbian S60 V5, an OS Nokia no longer supports or intends to maintain.
There is no Symbian Anna or Belle for the C6-00, and Mac users are even more neglected as the Nokia Software Updater for Mac DOES NOT SUPPORT the C6-00, despite the text on Nokia's Beta Labs site - I tried it last night, and in the feedback there's many people who also have phones that are supposedly supported yet they do not work.
On the public face of things, Nokia is flat out determined to forget the phone exists and ignore any and all feedback about it requesting support or bug fixes. You can't even find the C6-00 on the Nokia site any more unless you use Google Search to "back door" your way through.
They're only interested in showing the illusion of support to customers who have bought the very latest Symbian^3 phones, and the whole front end is now Lumia! Lumia! Lumia!
Don't buy this phone, don't expect support for it if you do buy it, and don't be surprised if the only feedback you get from Nokia is just, "Buy our new Lumia!"
I was given a C6-00 as a gift to replace an ailing N95 (which funnily enough has a 3D-dedicated GPU but the C6-00 apparently does not), and when this C6-00 dies it will be the last Nokia phone I ever own.
doriandun, 25 Jun 2012this handset is not as bad as many people are making out.
The touch screen is a little iff... morehey, I've been using C6-00 for One Year and Two Days now! And, objection to your comment on video playback- if converted to .mpeg4, h264, the cell can play higer resolutions of videos. Now I'm using Format Factory to convert videos with 480x360 resolution with stereo sound, giving bitrates around 1100kbps. And it records videos at around 3000kbps, with good sound quality. The cell went bad once, became extremely slow, around 3 months ago. But it was inside the warranty period, so i dumped it in NokiaCare, it came back good in Two days. But the problem was not in the software, it worked all right- the screen was the culprit! So, advice, if anyone buys one, don't sit on the cell, or don't keep dropping it!
Otherwise, good phone. I'm using it in 2G only, but my monthly downloads reach around 5 GB, the cell manages well. Actually that's why I'm using it in 2G- it's a whole lot cheaper!
Good phone, nice for internet browsing. And if you have good network connection, you'll be able to play youtube videos in the browser too; just goes blank after a minute of buffering!
Actually, a few minutes ago, I was watching Ice Age 3 in it, and I could actually count Manny's Hairs!
Good multimedia performance. But didn't get a firmware update for 5 months. Last update was just the browser. It's good though.
I want to buy a new phone and using the Nokia E63 at the moment I stuck between the Nokia C6 and Samsung galaxy ace. Im more of a nokia fan but beleive change is good Any advise on the Nokia C6 or Samsung Galaxy Ace
this is the most amazing phone that i have ever had its really strong and it has a lot of options and a good touch
