    Things i hate so far are;

    * it resets, firmware UG should fix this
    * typing sms, it assumes letters not number for the to: feild, why i dont
    know! Have to long keypress to do numbers.
    * fc*k - nokia still dont show default elapsed time of current call and
    navigating the menu to it is a nightmare
    * keylock works manualy, the only automatic option has to be set to greater
    than a minuite and needs a friggn 5digit unlock number!
    * the calander dosent have a BIRTHDAY option, the old nokia 7250 also keept
    track of how old the person is from DOB. (you can add a single bday to a
    persons name in the addbook entry)
    * the SHORTCUT/FAVORITE keys dont let you create any useful shortcuts, the
    only thing that had a shortcut option was sound and pics... this is a pain
    in the ass!
    * the navigator key only shortcuts to the addressbook and thats it!
    * cant set own screesaver

    ANY FIXS TO THESE WILL BE POSTED TO MY BLOG SITE AS WELLA S HELP OTHERS IN
    THE NGROUPS, THANKS

    I agree with these faults, re the menu I am sure it just takes time to get
    used to.

    My phone does show elapsed time during a call. Go to LOG - OPTIONS -
    SETTINGS - You have two settings in there, Log Duration and Show Call
    Duration. Change Show Call Duration to Yes.

    Some of my pet pet peeves with the phone so far -

    Cell Info Wraps to the next line after 10 letters - the screen is wide
    enough to have it on one line. In Australia the cell names are up to 11 so
    the last letter is under the 10th letter.
    If you have a profile chosen it shows where the date normally goes.
    Putting in contacts - I have not figures out how to easily change the icons
    on a number without putting the number in again - ie from a phone to a
    mobile. On others you just went - Change Type.
    Putting an address in yakes up multiple lines - Street, City etc but when
    you get a business card with an address it shows up under 1 entry - Letter
    Icon called address. Can not get that entering manually.
    Can not edit Phone book entries using the Phone Suite software. Would be
    much easier.
    Have a corrupt ringtone on the phone memory - I can rename it but it will
    not open,delete or move. Just comes up with an error. Someone suggested I
    would have to format the memory.


    Apart from these there are some great features such as

    Individual ring tones for each contact if you choose
    Unlimited groups
    Edit Labels in Contacts
    THumbnails next to name during call
    The Log showing all calls,SMS, is great. Easily to work out which support
    calls, duration etc I get over a period of time.




    I have Version 3.42.1 16-10-03. Is this the latest version?

    This looks like the latest version.
    there is two minor updates ontop of this
    but all it adds is extra operator & country varients.
    To take it to V3.42.1 16-12-03

    Re: things i hate about my nokia 6600 so far are...

    It's funny that a lot of the recent models of Nokia over the last 3 to 4 years
    have never included a call timer.

    Their older models did have that function in that when on a call you could
    see the time elapsing and work out how long to be on a call. One wonders
    why they dropped a feature that was handy only to re introduce it in a
    cumbersome manner...

    Usual effect you see with design at times.

    Basically whoever dropped it didnt see the
    need for it and when forced to add it again,
    plays silly buggers making it hard to use.

    How Nokia settles on design details is obviously a rather weird system
    that sometimes works very well, but quite often produces weird stuff too.

    The function is on the 6600. Shows you the time for each call, even when you
    have one on hold.

    Nope. Did they ever have it on GSM, and on which phones?
    never had it on a 2010, 8110, 6110, 7110 etc etc

    Been a while since iv had it now, but i'm sure my 7110 could be configured
    to always show the timer. Required a setting in the menu once, then would
    show the counter during the calls. Not sure what firmware either.
