    I am up for a free upgrade from Cingular and was wondering what anyone
    thought about the 6102i. This is actually for my 17 y\o daughter who as most
    teens aren't really careful with the phone she now has a Moto551, has been a
    very good phone but is now getting kind of old. I have an old trusty 6010
    and absolutely love the reliability and reception on this so was wondering
    about the flip Nokia.

    Thanks for the help.

    Re: Nokia 6102i ?

    I have a 6102i. I like it but it isn't without it's limitations. I
    wouldn't complain about reception. It does support mp3 rings but
    doesn't have any built-in music player. It's not real good for Internet
    browsing but I don't know of any cellular phone that is. Maybe a smart
    phone would be better for that.

    The other popular complaint is the camera quality. It is less than 1
    megapixel. Photos will look fine on the phone itself but will be poor
    once tranferred to a computer.

    I've found battery life to be very good unless you use the bluetooth
    and/or EDGE a lot. The screen is bright and clear. The phone is a
    little more bulky than some because of it's high quality exterior LCD
    screen. But it's not as long, or shall I say high, as some of the new
    candybar phones.

    The EDGE service works quite well, and so does the bluetooth. I use
    the 6102i as a modem for my notebook when I need Internet service in a
    pinch. Since I have MEdiaNET unlimited on my plan, I can use it this
    way as much as I like. I use a bluetooth adapter on my laptop to
    connect to the phone and then the phone dials the EDGE connection. I
    end up with a 20K to 120K connection depending what kind of service I
    have and what kind of towers are in the area.

    While I highly recommend the 6102i, I'd advise you to read other
    reviews at Amazon, phonescoop, etc. The feeling I get is that the 6102i
    doesn't have the WOW factor, or shall we say, it doesn't make the bold
    statement that some of the newer phones, such as the RAZR do. While
    this doesn't bother me, it might affect a 17 yr. old who is concerned
    about being up with all they cool kids.

    Thanks Harlan, it sounds pretty much like what I am after, she doesnt need
    internet or any of the fancy stuff just good reception, battery life and
    lets not forget texting. I guess for free I cant expect too much but all I
    have ever had was Nokia and have been very pleased with it. As for the WOW
    factor that can be taken care of when she gets a J.O.B. and buys her own.

    Thanks again.

    Re: Nokia 6102i ?

    And I should mention, since you mentioned it, that I love Nokia's text
    features. I use it daily. I always use the predictive text input and
    I love it. Nokia has one of the best systems, I think.

    I realize there are some T9 dictionarys or predictive text input
    systems that start guessing what word you are trying to ***** before
    you typed all the letters. Nokia's doesn't do that. But I love it
    anyway. I find it to be simple and intuitive, but also very powerful.

    Agreed on the J.O.B. :-)

    Re: Nokia 6102i ?

    i have a Nokia 6800 which is equipped with a QWERTY keyboard, it's
    great for text messaging and have a good reception. I bought it on
    ebay, Cingular offers me a free Samsung D807 slider phone, but i like
    6800 so much and have been using it instead of D807
