    Just outta curiosity - anyone got any comments on the nokia 6260 flip phone?

    looking through the group i cant see it ever being mentioned - is it that
    bad??

    I was thinkin of getting one cos of the document reader functionality, - I
    work
    on the road but often people sent me urgent faxes. If they send to the
    office
    they have t wait for me to pick then up - can b a few days, or send to my
    mobile fax
    number - i have too find a fax to print them on.

    I'm guessin the doc reader has the functionality to read these faxes

    Thanks in advance,

    Rick

    I just purchased a used one on Ebay to try it out -- saw it in Hong Kong
    last December and thought it was great. Will let you know in a couple of
    weeks how it is.

    I am accustomed to a bar phone and do not care for the idea of flipping
    it open -- and when someone is calling the 6230, on the outside you only
    see a light flashing -- no external screen sufficiently large for numbers
    or names.

    I have had a 6260 for about 4 months now and have no major complaints apart
    from the resolution of the camera could be better. The flip and twist screen
    is quite handy for lining up those self portraits with assembled drunk
    people then checking to see if any of the photos match the strange girl
    wondering about my flat on Sunday morning.

    The radio in the 6260 is ok, nothing special but again nothing to write home
    about. The Real player for playing mp3's does on some tracks at high
    compression does have an annoying clicking sound sometimes. The call quality
    is fine, but again nothing spectacularly different from other Nokias. The
    screen is a good size for viewing web pages and Word/PowerPoint documents,
    but not as good as a dedicated pda/phone like the 02 XDA. The optional
    bluetooth keyboard is a handy gadget for when you want to
    email/messenger/edit text but is pricey at around £80-120, and that's if you
    can get it. The phone's keypad is ok for making small amendments to
    documents but I wouldn't like to try and type anything more than about 50
    words in one go. Also, if you get sent password protected documents, these
    won't open in the phone.

    I have had up to 512 Mb RSMMC cards in the phone with no problems but I
    don't know if there is an upper limit on memory the phone will recognise.
    The RSMMC cards it takes are the single voltage ones, so extra memory above
    the supplied 32Mb card is fairly cheap.

    I can't think of anything else of note with the phone, but I would guess if
    your main reason to getting one is to view word documents, and there isn't
    another phone that allows you to do this, then it probably won't be the
    worst phone you've ever owned.

    Had my 6260 since last xmas and I'm really pleased with it, it does
    everything i want (and more). I've put a 512mb card it so i can use it as an
    mp3 player too.
    As for the 'mobile office' thing, I've set an e-mail account up on mine so I
    can get doc's e-mailed to me as attachments.

    But with a 6260 you can twist it and fold it shut with the screen facing out
    if you need to see incoming calls, also you can turn off the active flip so
    it doesn't answer the call when you open it until you press one of the keys.

    Great thoughts which will suffice for much of the usage, but not for when
    the phone rings and you pull it out of your pocket or belt clip case.

    Not sure I understand where your coming from, when my 6260 rings I pull it
    from my pocket and flip it open, if the display shows a number I don't want
    to accept I just close the flip again, which rejects the call, many would
    consider this an easier option than trying to press a key to reject the call
    at the risk of accidently pressing the wrong key and answering it!

    Cheers for all the feedback ppl, was startin' to think I was imagining the
    phone existed.

    Think am gonna go ahead n get one this week then - was stuck between the
    6260 and the siemens sk65.
    The sk65 has a poorer screen though, an' no cam. I know its got black-berry
    wotsit fingy... (my techno-jargon) but that doesnt have that many advantages
    above a plain old e-mail client from what I can see.

    Just one more question... Anyone know if the 6260 will sync with outlook
    2003?

    Ta again

    Just upgraded mine to 512mb RSMMC as well. And by the way, the original
    and the new one are dual voltage 1.8/3.0.

    Still enjoying the phone; however haven't yet had time to work with most
    of what it has to offer. If you purchase a new or used phone, ensure
    that it has a manual in your language for they are practically impossible
    to obtain in the USA -- NokiaUSA does not have them because the phone is
    not sold in this country. NokiaUK will not deal with anyone outside of
    the UK. And could not locate anything relative in the Nokia-Europe site,
    although one would think that the home office would be the logical place.

    So what I did was to two-side print the 200-page on-line PDF, then join
    it with two small binder rings. Now it's possible to make notes in the
    margin and refer to it as needed -- However, the table of contents is
    quite spartan and it does not have an index so it takes some time to
    locate info.

    Also I added a Jabra Bluetooth 250v which is excellent and purchased a
    USB cable, but for some reason the Nokia PC Suite will download, but will
    not complete installation on my XP computer. I called NokiaUSA support
    and was told that it's the fault of my computer and I promptly told him
    that his company was supplying the install program, not me. Has anyone
    else experienced this?
