    My 6600 is acting very strange, over the last couple of days it will
    randomly turn itself off while it is on charge. Then when i try to
    turn it on it only a white screen comes up, not even the nokia splash
    screen then its like this for 10 secs and turns off again. I got lucky
    yday and it turned on properly after a few hours. There are a couple
    apps on the phone not MMC card, but only stnadard one, no autoexec.
    ANy Ideas?

    Thanx
    Jai

    That seems like it may be the cause of the problem... I've been using
    a different charger and not the original. Didnt think it would cause a
    problem. What did you do in the end? Do i have to get it reflashed at
    a service centre. Think im still in 28 days from purchase so might
    just take it back and say the phones faulty... Any one else had this
    problem?

    Thanx

    If you stop using the non 6600 charger, it should operate normally..

    There is currently no updated firmware for the 6600, yet. Tho, having said
    that, I use a generic nokia car charger on my 6600, and it doesnt bother it
    ...

    But I use the wall powered charger that came with it, via a desk stand, to
    charge it normally ..

    4 weeks ago mine started powering off just after starting up. Sometimes it
    never even got that far. When it did boot the contacts list was blank. Then
    it just started rebooting continuously. Took it to a repair centre and they
    had to send it off to Nokia. Got it back last Thursday (2 week turn-a-round
    became 3 weeks) and it all seems fine now. The phone had been reloaded
    though so I had lost all the information that was on it. I've NEVER been
    able to get it to communicate via bluetooth to PCS. Grrr! Anybody recommend
    a reliable bluetooth adaptor for WinXP Pro?

    I'm using the Belkin adapter F8T003 (I find all their stuff reliable)
    with the Nokia 6600, no problems
