    I've recently upgraded from 6310i to the 6680 and I found two
    disappointments:
    1. There is no automatic keypad lock. This is found in all the new
    non-Symbian Nokias (e.g. 6100) and I can't understand why they didn't
    do it here.
    2. On the 6310i (and newer) there was a neat feature where you change
    to a profile with a timer, so after the set time the phone reverts to
    the original profile. Really useful when you're in a meeting, or when
    you take a nap for 2 hours. Again, 6680 does not have it.

    Hopefully Nokia is listening and will fix it in the next firmware
    upgrade.
    Or, alternatively, someone will write a Symbian app that can do these
    two things...

    Fair points.
    There is third party software available that can help ease your troubles.
    If you find a decent keylocker let me know )
    If you get stuck also let me know.

    Two other things I have found a little disappointing with the Nokia 6680
    is:

    1. Only 10MB of internal memory, some of the Motorola phones have 32MB,
    and

    2. The use of RS-MMC rather than a normal MMC, more expensive and only
    this week I have seen a couple of 1G RS-MMC hit eBay.

    Make sure it's DV RS MMC!
    I am not aware of 1Gb of this being available just yet. The release date
    seems to be set back each time.

    the menus.

    These settings don't exist on my 6680 (on orange). Are there different
    versions ? I've also seen reference to standby settings that my phone
    doesn't have in the menus

    According to the manual, the 'autolock' locks the phone and you need
    to unlock it with a security code. This is against theft and
    unauthorized use. This is not what I meant. What I mean is just to
    lock the keypad against accidental press of the keys (like you
    manulally do with 'Menu *' in the non-Symbian phone). As I said in my
    original post, this feature exists in the phones that were released in
    the last 2 years or so, such as the 6100.

    As far as I can tell, this feature does NOT exist in the 6680.
    However, there are commercial Symbian application that do that.
    Here is one that lists for 5 USD:
    http://www.symbianware.com/product.p...ker60&pl=n6680

    A quick Google search will find more.

    On my non Orange 6680 pressing the left side menu key ( which defaults
    to "messaging") & " * " locks the keypad in the normal way.

    Manual locking is available on ALL Nokia phones. The trick is a
    time-based locking - after x seconds/minutes of inactivity, keypad
    locks. Windows has it, Nokia 6100 has it but bleeding-edge users of
    6680 have to pay for a 3rd-party application to do what is free on
    other Nokia phones.
    Again, I hope the Nokia people monitor this newsgroup and will
    understand that this kind of behavior pissed people off.

    You can lock the 6680 keypad ...

    press the key that normally shows "messag" above it and then the * key.
    Works for me.

    Firmware here is V 2.04.15 04-03-05 which was loaded by Nokia service
    centre. Originally had the Vodafone firmware which was pants!
