    Hi

    I'm thinkning about buying a datacable for my 5140

    There seems to be 2 types, the DKU-5 and the CA-42. Does anyone know what
    the difference between these two? And which I could buy?
    The DKU-5 is about 60? and the CA-42 is about 40?.

    Thanks!

    From reading on the Nokia website,
    http://www.nokia.com.au/nokia/0,8764,58670,00.html the DKU-5 is the
    only option for the Nokia 5140. The CA-42 is not mentioned for the 5140
    at all.

    It appears the CA-42 is for newer Nokia phone's only.

    The views stated by me are my own and have nothing to do with any
    organisation I belong to, so the prick that tried to slander me can get
    ****ED because it didn't work!

    it is listed as compatible here:

    http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,5184,5984,00.html

    i think the difference between dku-5 and ca-42 is just the colour, i
    may be wrong though.

    Disclaimer: I'm ignorant of how the two cables really work and am
    blindly repeating what I just read, which may very well be incorrect.

    That said, http://pricerunner.mobileplace.co.uk/product/824 says: "Whats
    the difference between the DKU-5 and CA-42? The CA-42 is a true USB
    cable and not like the DKU-5 with a virtual COM-port built on a usb
    plugin, however both cables allow exactly the same functionality. This
    cable replaces the old nokia dku-5 cable, which is no longer manufactured"

    compatibility pages on nokia.com and it seems fine, so I've ordered one...
