Nokia 6600 review
These complement a built-in video recorder (picture size 176x144 or 128x96; audio on/off; 2x digital zoom) and a RealOne player for playback and streaming of 3GPP-compatible and RealMedia video clips. Multimedia functions are enhanced by templates for MMS messages and a Media Gallery for organizing digital content captured or downloaded with the phone.
Sharing the Symbian operating system of the older 3650 and 7650, the Nokia 6600 offers the functionality of a "smart" phone in a (slightly) less bulky design, with the benefit of extra memory for all those applications you'll want to install. This is without doubt a very highly specified phone, with the potential to enhance its capabilities further with downloadable applications.
Nokia 6600 features include:
- Active matrix TFT display with 65,536 colours (176 x 208 pixels)
- Integrated digital camera with zoom
- Video recorder with audio support
- Streaming video and audio
- Graphical user interface with selectable themes
- 5-way joystick navigation
- Multimedia messaging
- XHTML browser
- GPRS (40.2Kbps), HSCSD (43.2Kbps)
- Symbian Operating System 7.0s
- Downloadable Java™ MIDP 2.0 applications & Symbian applications
- Wireless connectivity with Bluetooth and infrared
- 6 MB internal memory
- Memory card slot for additional user memory and applications
- Polyphonic ringtones
- Local synchronization of contacts & calendar to PC using PC Suite Remote
- Over-the-air synchronization with SyncML
- Voice features: voice dialing, voice commands, voice recorder, integrated handsfree speaker
- Standby time: 150 - 240 hours
- Talktime: 2 - 4 hours
- Weight: 122 g
- Size: 109 x 58 x 24 mm

I chose this Nokia 6600f phone from my 02 shop in Carisle in August 2009 as as part of the option to update as per my contract. As i now understand it this phone has been on the market since 2003, which has obviously been supeceded by more uptodate models. I have just recently taken this mobile into my local shop who then had to send it away for repair, as even though the keypad worked and i could dial out and receive calls i could not see any information on my screen. I have now been told that it cannot be repaired as moisture has got inside. I cannot see how as it has never been near any water! Then i was told that it could be susceptical to extreme cold or a change in temperature which i have never suffered from any Nokia mobile in the many years that i have had a mobile. I have had great faith in Nokia and only always go for a Nokia each time i upgrade. I am extremely dissappointed with this model, and because i am tied to a contract for 2 years, i now have to purchase another mobile, as i am now being told this is what i have to do!!! I now look to you for your comments, and do hope we can come to some to some compromise. Thanking you Yours faithfully Mrs susan scott Repair ref: 17547131 IMEI : 355729026754098 Telefonica 02 Slough

I've had this phone for about half a year and I think it's awesome. This phone is suited to people who don't care about how big and ugly their phone is, but just want the features. It is a Series 60 phone, which means that it can run a whole slew of applications from Symbian. Chances are, if there's something that this phone doesn't have, there's a Symbian application to fix it. If only they hadn't put the MMC card under the battery.

Hello, First of all I want to know what is the difference between 6600 &

is a complete package of success in all the phone that I have ever seen.
Ya, one thing is sure that you have to somewhat compromise with Camera
resolution & somewhat clarity of screen only in comparision of other phones like 3230,7610,6670 & like sony ericcsion, otherwise this is a fantastic phone. You should blindly purchase this phone as it is just 110 pounds. Buy it !!!

I've had many phones but keep going back to my trusty Nokia 6600 because it really is a nice bit of kit if a bit lacking in more modern features
It doubles up as a cheap GPS system, has upgradable software (mine now takes me to places via Tomtom mobile, plays mp3s, and records long videos if I desire and the keypad is so well laid out (unlike newer nokia phones).
If they could do a 6600 with upgraded features and a sensible keypad then I might well get one next time. The 6680 looks promising but doesn't
really do enough extra for it to appeal (I want more MMS functions such as
being able to send midi files!)
Sadly time has taken its tole and the spec 0.3MP camera, large size, old
version bluetooth, limited battery life and only 6MB of internal memory (cannot use external memory card for ringtones or sending stuff by bluetooth) make it look rather primitive compared to my new w800i. But it
did get years of use compared to me swapping other phones after just a few months!
I'll keep it as a GPS/mini computer and who knows, I may tire of the
fabulous Sony w800 and end up using it so more. Afterall it is nicer to text on!

when the nokia 6600 came out i knew that i had to have one. i was having money problems at the time so i visited the sunday market where i picked up a second hand one for £150. i had the phone for two years with no problems whatsoever. i bought a 128mb memory card for it and it held over
150 pictures, and over 60 videos. the camera quality was fantastic. i
managed to get an mp3 player from the internet and downloaded it to the
phone with no problems, and i also found a camcorder which recorded videos with sound which i managed to record 2 hour videos on, then transfered them to my pc using a blutooth stick. it was the best phone i ever had.
one day i got a call from t-mobile saying my phone had been reported as
being stolen by the previous ownwer. i had proof of purchace, i had the box, origonal charger and booklet to proove i bought it but they still
bloced and barred the phone. i had to drop it off at the nearest police
station. i didnt understand why i had owned the phone for over two years and they were only letting me know now. but there was nothing i could do about it, i had to let the phone go because it was
useless. i went out to buy the cheapest camera phone i could find just to
keep me going until i found another 6600. the phone i got was pathetic
compared to my old phone so i took it back. my husband came home the other night with a brand new 6600. i have registered it to my mane and address to stop anything happening to this one. i tend to have this one til it dies of natural causes. its the best phone i have ever owned. my boyfriend

I feel that the Nokia 6600 is perfectly competent as far as mobile blowers go. The picture quality is fairly decent (as good as you really need from a 'phone'). However, it would be nice to be able to record a decent length video. It is a very robust phone which hasn't hiccuped once since I've owned it (2 years approx) despite being dropped on many occasions. My brother and several of his friends have Nokia 6230s. I and they agree that the 6600 is a better overall phone. The main reason for this is that the picture quality on the 6230 appears poorer and it can't fit the entire image on it's pitifully small screen. Also, you have to search for other bluetooth handsets every time you want to use this function. My beloved Nokia 6600 will be sorely missed as I am about to replace it with the arguably all conquering Nokia 6680. I'd just like to give a shout out to my home boys 'Ghost Faced Bubbles' and 'Grand Master Ruffles'. Respect boya!

SO far its survived being chucked out a 1st floor window onto concrete 3 times, flung into walls, the floor, air and down the stairs about 30 times, it's been stood on, kicked and dropped.

I have had this phone for approximately 8 months, and am happy with it, apart from the lack of volume on the incoming ring tones. I can't find any way of turning this up, even on maximum setting, it's still quiet compared with other phones. If you buy a larger memory card, the movies you can watch on this phone are excellent. I recommend a 512meg memory card, which can store around 10 full films on it, as well as loads of good quality ringtones and images. If you are thinking of buying this phone, i would recommend it, but the volume lets this down slightly.

Had a 6600 for quite a while now and wouldn't have another one. It was one of the first video phones but the video quality is pants. camera is OK for a VGA but not that special compared to newer megapixel cameras. All the people I normally talk to tell me that the call quality is not good and I would say that reception is not that special either. The most anoying thing (apart from the stupid menu system which is much worse than Nokias previous excellent system) is that after six months a couple of buttons on the left of the phone became harder and harder to respond including the green button which you use to answer so that when someone is calling you press and press but the call goes unanswered. I've had many Nokias in the past and liked them all but now I'm looking to buy a Motorola (V3?)

What a proper nice phone! Excellent camera, video playback is sweet - catches some funneee moments! 3rd Party Software is easy to get to the phone via email. All WAP / Email etc... settings available from www.filesaveas.com - very useful site with links to software as well as step by steps for whatever you need. Only cow is trying to use the camera for a still shot, and then open up Video Recorder, only to find that the camera is still in use by the "Camera" application. The fact that there is a 3rd party app. called Application Killer to rectify this problem suggests that it is a generic problem. Apart from that - excellent quality and the 32mb MultiMedia Memory Card that comes with it is a real bonus - plenty of room for clips & stills.

the Proxy Port No which you can get from your operator (mine is 8080 and yours
probably too). Doing this, you should be able to enjoy the fantastic features
of Nokia best phone to date!

This is just to help the below with the problem of short vids!!: I have a 7650,
and as bluetooth on that does not support audio I am looking at a 6600... A
few problems i've herd tho 1. Get horizontal lines when taking pics 2. Bk light
goes out quickly and there is no way to change it 3. The vids don't last very
long. 1 and 2, well... bummer... but 3.... (not tested) I have a disk full of
apps n games from my 7650 which I have been assured that most of which will
work with the 6600... amongst these include an uprated vid corder app which
basically records untill the memory caution appears on my 7650... I see no reason
why this can not be loaded onto the 6600 apart from the zoom. Hope this may
be of use to someone! Oski.

ive bought my 6600 barely a month ago. ive noticed that it takes a long time
to start-up when you switch on the phone. also, there's a one second delay every
time you push a button (ex. opening the menu). AND MOST OF ALL!!! My mobile
is busted!!! one time i was sending a TexT Message, the 'memory full - delete
some file' popped-up. i unwittingly switched-off the phone. when i switched
it ON, it hanged! only the nokia logo appeared, and after an eternity, it dissappeared,
leaving only the white background. right now im holding a very expensive TORCH.

Great phone........wat else can i say. Its packed full of features and everything you can need. Im not going to talk about all the good features now because theyre endless but ill tell u the down sides of the phone. The battery life sucks....its lasts 2-3 days and not as long as it says it does.....no FM radio but you can get MP3 software which kicks ass but needs a large MMC card like 250mb. its also quite a large phone so if u like small skimpy phones go for the siemens sl55. Video quality is not the best....but new technology never is but the camera quality is the best ive seen on a mobile. Ive had this mobile before christmas and i think its great. Not worth buying if you dont use your phone much but perfect for a business man. The phone is not da best when you get it but with the software and applications available for this phone it kicks majour ass!!! I would have to say it\'s a great buy......and one of the best on the markets......and don\'t waste your money on a 7600!!! any questions email me email@example.com

Nice phone...excellent pictures and colours. Pictures taken with camera are
nice and they look good in computer screen too(made larger). Of course they
aren“t very sharp, but quite good however. Easy to use, as Nokia phones all
are and like the navigation button. Suitable size. Quite slow, but doesn“t bother.

The Nokia 6600 is a great phone with functionality packed to the top. A large
colour screen at high resolution. Exceptionally good quality built-in camera
with 2X Optical zoom. Includes most functions offered by a hand held PDA. User
friendly interface (A Nokia Speciality). Customizable fields in the contacts
phone book to add or remove exta details. Web browsing is enjoyable due to the
large screen. Bluetooth enabled and sync with PC is no problem and there is
no need for data cable. Easily recognises other devices via Bluetooth (tried
with PC, Sony6110 & XDA) Speaker phone facility is ver handy. If that was not
enough it also records videos and playback is very good. Videos can be stored
on the provided memory card (32Mb) however that can later be upgraded to up
to 1Gb. hours of fun. Some good games available such as PinBall & good old (or
New) Snake. If you are use to tiny phones such as Nokia 8310 or Semines SL55
then you will find this phone a hand full i.e. in size but you get use to it
after a while. Its not that much heavier weighing at 125g. Overall a great phone
especially if you need to sync with PC contact and keep track of your appointments

There are few features that are lacking on this particular model (Nokia 6600)
The ringtone is too soft to be heard. E.g. while placing phone on the front
shirt pocket without blocking the loudspeaker, when the phone rings, the ringtone
hardly heard. The phone only display the last timing (for received,missed and
called timings). E.g. if you have 10 missed call, it will just display the timing
of the last missed call. No chinese software is installed. No auto-keypad lock

it is waisted with me - as i dont use all the features, it's nice to have the

The fact that the keys are placed at the lower end of the mbl makes it difficult
to txt a message coz the bulky part of it is at the top and u r unable to get

After having the Nokia 7650 for roundabout one year i felt it was time for a
change,and boy was it worth it!! The Nokia 7650 was a great phone but this baby
the Nokia 6600 destroys them all. I had ordered it without even laying my hands
on one,i had just seen the pics on the web and instanly liked the new design.
I must admit the size worried me but when you take this beauty from the box
it is amazing how much smaller it looks compared to the 7650 and the design
is fine. The features are excellent and very similiar to the 7650 so if you
could work one of them there wont be a problem. The bright 65k colour is a joy
in its self with taking pictures,video or even just getting yourself round the
menus. What has impressed me is the Nokia 6600 pc suite software,again very
similiar to the 7650 software but this time around it comes with file transfer
which will allow you to grab a mp3 of your pc put it through the file transfer
which will convert it so you can send to your phone when you are bluetooth enabled,and
the result well its only mono but a real true tone blasts out of your handset,great
for ringtones and sms alerts!!! I could write all day about this phone,Excellent.

People, the nokia 6600 is not much of a change performance wise compared to its prediscecorz (3650, 7250). The only major change perhaps is the 65k screen (previously 4k), which is a great change-but with the extra price hike, its probably not worth the trouble spending the extra few hundrew for a better quallity screen. Physicaly the 66 is a smaller fone, its easier to handle, and is well suited for large palm. One bad thing i found about this 66 was that it didnt have X-press on covers, which would eventually lead to a scratch on the screen if i droped it (which is more then likly considering i use my fones for day to day useage at school n that, of course covers can be changed through a nokia dealer..but its a hassel. Another down side to this fone and the 3650 is that the little plastic screen covering the camra lense at the back is unprotected. I personally think that nokia is doing this on perpous to just age the phones quicker. Its not a problem if the fone is used properly,! but everyone makes mistakes, n one of thoes mistakes might be your new, pricy 6600 fallign down to the ground, and its camra lense smashing to minute peices while you cry mircy. thirt party software is god send. the nokia 6600 is a ordinary fone when it comes to preinstalled aplications..but ad the 3p software..damn..you got a good fone. Theres everything from mp3 players n photo shooting sofwear that will imporve the performant of your camra, but watch out..Mp3z are big!..so be ready to pay for a larger memry card if your going to enjoy a satifactory playlist. The 66 is a fone most suited for busness people. Not for play. but if you pay for a fone that doesnt give wot your paying for..and using it for play n lessuir. I strongly reconment you not to get it. All in all..the nokia 66 is an alright fone..but if you want the same thing just a little bigger get the 3660( it has covers :D) latahz dudez if you have any inquiries about the 66..email me or add me at firstname.lastname@example.org

ANY OF YOU OUT THERE THAT HAS "PROBLEMS WITH TRANSFERRING PICTURES AND RING
TONES TO YOUR PHONE (ANY THAT TAKE AN MMC OR SD CARD ie SHARP GX30/i NOKIA 6600
& 7230) TAKE NOTE!!!! Y O U D O N T N E E D THE PHONE MANUFACTURERS' PHONE "DATA
MANAGEMENT SUITE". THE EEEESIEST WAY OF DOING IT IS GO TO A PC COMPONENTS SUPPLIER
(PC-WORLD ETC) AND PAY, O N L Y £15 (ish) TO GET A MEMORY CARD "READER"
(THERE IS ONE THAT READS SD & MMC ALL IN ONE). THEN PLUG INTO YOUR PC (USE THE
MEM CARD DRIVERS IF NEEDED, BUT MILLENIUM/2000 & XP USERS DONT NEED THEM), AND
HEY PRESTO! USE IT LIKE A FLOPPY DRIVE/ADDITIONAL DRIVE!! JUST COPY/CUT AND
PASTE FILES BACK AND FORTH USING EXPLORE MY COMPUTER ETC.. *** NOTE-if the phone
FORMATS the memory card with folders then DONT delete them as the phone WONT
recognise whats gone on (if you do, you'll need to let the phone re-format it
to its way of formating and then start again) *** THIS IS GREAT TO RECORD (USING
WINDOWS "SOUND RECORDER") UPTO 30 SECOND SAMPLES (IN WAV FORMAT) OFF A N Y OF
YOUR FAVOURITE MUSIC CD TO BE USED AS A RING TONE!!! (AHEM, COPYRIGHT ERM, APPLIES);-)..
NOTE - WAV format sounds are quite big in data size, so anything more than 30
seconds in length can be hazardous to your mem cards' space!! ;-) THOSE OF YOU
THAT HAVE PHONES THAT CAN USE MP3 TRACKS AS RINGTONES (SUCH AS NOKIA 6230) USE
THIS FORMAT AS THEY SAVE A LOT OF SPACE... THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO TRANSFER FILES
TO YOUR BUILT IN MP3 PLAYER TOO!! IF ANYONE HAS ANY QUESTIONS, OR HAS BOUGHT
A MEMORY CARD READER AND FINDS SOME DIFFICULTY IN TRANSFERRING THEIR PICS/SOUNDS
TO AND FROM THEIR PHONE THEN I'LL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP OUT IF I CAN...
MY E-MAIL ADDRESS IS email@example.com HAVE FUN, ENJOY! ;-) PS 6600
a damn good phone, only downside is it SHOULD have had a built in MP3 player.
I bought the "Gravity" MP3 player form the Nokia software website and it doesn't
play ANY MP3's correctly, it sounds like a Sinclair ZX Spectrum trying to play
Eminem!! So my next phone will be the 6630 (after i've tried the MP3 player
on it), and if its no good, then i'll go to the GX30i (had the use of a GX30
for a too short a time and it to was a damn good phone..
