    I know this phone isn't the best...but it has AWESOME signal strength and
    good battery life. I have a couple of questions that maybe some one on here
    can answer. Is there a setting for the backlight time? It's on for like 5
    seconds or less, then shuts off. I need to make it longer. It's starting to
    drive me nuts and have yet to find that option anywhere. I never owned a
    phone that didn't have it as an option. I hope it does.

    Also, what exactly is GPRS? I can never connect to it to SHOP RINGTONES. I
    am assuming it needs to be turned on with the plan or some thing? Could that
    be it? Also, if anyone else has input on this Nokia 6200 phone or tips they
    can give me...I would be very appreciated!

    I'm also looking for the easiest way to get some ringtones in this thing. I
    do have
    a data cable coming soon and I assume this would be the way. Can I upload
    normal MIDI files right to the phone and use them as a ringer? I'm new to
    this
    type of stuff since my old V60 didn't do any of this stuff. I've always just
    stuck
    to the simple stock ****ty tones that phone came with. Now, I have this 6200
    for work and it's capable doing much more and want to start using it. Maybe
    there's a website dedicated for this phone model or some thing? Well,
    anything
    that anyone can provide would be great!

    As far as I know you can't change the backlight setting's (either
    on-off-default timed)

    You'll have to get this function turned on by your provider, then hopefully
    they'll send you the GPRS Setting for you phone.

    Don't think you can change the backlight time on this one.

    GRPS does require a subscription from your carrier.

    Ringtones can come in WAP, or you can convert your midi files and use
    the Nokia data suite. I use mine with the IR port that is built in...
