    The Nokia PC Suite is a very good idea. Managing your phone stuff from
    the PC is so much easier. Arranging your SMS that you want to keep
    becomes a holiday if you do it from Windows Explorer.

    I wish!!!!

    Just trying to move all outgoing SMS to (Contact 1) to a dedicated
    folder on the phone, and moving all the incoming SMS from the same
    Contact 1 to the same folder triples the amount of SMS, i.e. I end up
    with three (3) f***ing copies of every SMS in the dedicated folder.

    I tried an earlier versiona year ago that came onthe CD when I bought
    the phone (6610) but uninstalled it after it seemed useless for
    anything else than transferring background images.

    I hoped the version downloaded today (6.4) would have fared better in
    comparison but boy was I wrong. Now I have to cancel 150 SMS by using
    the phone only (don't think it is so easy as to delete them in the
    Explorer window! Been there, tried that!).

    Nokia people, if you are out there: Please excuse the tone of my post
    (I am simply very pissed off at the moment but will certainly feel
    better tomorrow) and then try to make up your mind as to whether you
    want to make software to match your phones in quality and usability,
    or whether you just want a cool looking PC GUI which has functions
    that screw up everything for your customers. After making your
    decision, either pull out of the software game or release something
    useful!!

    That's my 2 cents anyway...

    /p

    Re: Does anyone use the PC suite??

    For ****'s sake!!!

    I deleted 40 messages oin the phone and then reconnected it tothe PC
    to see how it worked... Guess what?? The bloody messages came back on
    to the phone again!!! And this is even though they are nowhere to be
    found on the PC when the phone is not connected. Apparently they
    double and triple and quadruple up as soon as the phone and the PC
    start the automatic synchronisation when viewing a folder in Explorer.

    I am so sick and tired of badly written software. Nokia, please do
    spare us more of this junk !

    /p

    Of course not, 4.88 is an ancient version and doesn't support the 6610i.
    Update PC suite.

    But your product does not support Symbian OS phones, which is a shame
    really..

    The 6610i is not a Symbian phone!

    Question is whether it can be exported and then re-imported to another
    phone, with the folders etc. structure in tact.

    I have downloaded your OPM for Symbian a couple of days back, tried
    it. But (maybe I have not explored enough) it cant seemed to back up
    my images/videos (please correct me if I am wrong).

    It seemed to do a pretty decent job in backing up the contacts and sms
    etc., however, I think the interface needs some improvement to provide
    intuitive usage. More suggestions, but I have not explored the
    software enough to make more remarks. It has been over a decade since
    I do testing for software products.. ;-)

    Regardless, you have a good product there and with some minor
    improvements (especially on the interface), your product will be THE
    product to use instead of the crappy Nokia Suite (you wouldnt believe
    what kind of suggestions I got from Nokia Care).

    cheers,
    eddie
