    When will we ever see the CR-27 holder in the UK?

    It's an absolute farce now. I have had my 6680 since May and still can't
    use it in my car. And when I get it, there's a chance I may have to replace
    my car kit to the CK-7W as not even Nokia could confirm whether or not the
    CR-27 would connect to my CARK-126 - they said I would have to try and see
    and if not replace the kit! Very helpful!

    Get your act together Nokia - this is NOT good enough!

    K,
    One thing that you might want to check, once you have connected your 6680 to
    a car kit.
    Go to Settings-Enhancement-Handsfree and check to see if there is a "Lights"
    setting.
    When you use the phone in the car kit, you would want the keypad/display
    lights to stay on - you do this in the above setting by changing from
    "auomatic" to "on".
    When I was trying out a 6680 @ CeBit in March, this was not an option!
    I wouldn't want the phone in a car kit holder without it having permanent
    illumination!

    Hi Johnny,

    Seems there are quite a few folks that are not happy with the way Nokia
    has launched a new phone without essential supporting accessories...

    Like you, I have the Cark-126 and wish to use my 6680 with it. After
    extensive searching and phone calls to online suppliers etc I finally
    got a response by email from nokia advising that the Cark-126 is not
    compatible with the 6680 and I would have to purchase an upgrade kit.

    Check this out...

    Called my local Nokia service centre who assure me that if I buy the
    CR-27 cradle (approx 30) replace the existing cable and plug in my
    existing 126 leads that it WILL work. There are those that say if you
    unplug your 126 and plug in to your 6680 directly that all it will do
    is show the little 'car icon' and will charge the phone but you can't
    phone out. Tried this and its true - however, the Service Centre
    explained that the cradle has electronics/software in it that allows
    all pins to function (hence the pop port technology)- the problem is of
    course that as my 6680 doesn't fit the cradle, I can't get contact to
    all of the pins - theres only 3 on the connecting lead. Was also told
    that the Cark-126 was the first to use the 'pop port' so naturally it
    will work with the cradle. This advice, if correct, contradicts Nokia -
    I have sent a stinker of a reply to Nokia explaining what the Service
    centre had advised and have asked them to explain who is correct!

    If what the Service Centre has told me is true then Nokia could have
    made me go out and unecessarily spend 300+ for a new kit (CK-7W /
    CR-27 + installation fee) when all I needed to spend was 30 for the
    cradle.

    I am fuming over this and have asked for the name and address of a
    Senior Nokia Customer Services manager (or above) so that I can vent my
    spleen and insist on an explanation. I also asked in my email that they
    try and do something to provide more info to individuals like you and
    me who have the 126 to advise that (if true) all you need to buy is a
    new damned cradle!

    Don't know if this will help you but I am going to go ahead and order
    the CR-27 from mobilefun.co.uk (on back order) and give it a go on my
    126. If it works then watch this space for my letter to Nokia!!

    Cheers,

    Oops - sorry folks the original following is confusing .... meant to
    say ... (approx 30) replace the existing 'cradle'..............

    (not 'cable' as typed)

    Called my local Nokia service centre who assure me that if
    I buy the
    CR-27 cradle (approx 30) replace the existing cable and
    plug in my
    existing 126 leads that it WILL work.

    Hope that clears up any confusion - cheers

    Big question is - when is the CR-27 going to be available in the UK?

    I do not know how they operate in England, but my experience purchasing
    from abroad (Italy) showed they are not deserving any confidence.
    Firstly, they (two times!) accepted online payment with my Credit Card,

    and then wrote me in the Acknowledgement of the order they require
    instead a Bank transfer (so they saved commissions to my expenses!)
    Then, following t omy transferring them money in excess, instead of
    returning me the remaining sum as they promised on the phone (10 GBP
    over a 50 GBP purchase) they changed the price of the goods in the
    Invoice, making it 10 GBP higher, so that the excess money disappeared
    in their pockets. They cannot be trusted, therefore!
