problem with calls - the other person doesn't hear me!
If someone here knows something more about phones than i do, please help me with this. First time i received a call it worked, but only for about 2-3 minutes, after that the other person didn't hear me anymore, but i continued to hear her. The next call - same problem. But after that it didn't work at all, from the beginning they didn't hear me... I don't know, is it because of some settings i have to make or i should just go to a service to solve the problem?

how to unlock this phone?
I understand that BB5 phones like the 6555 can not be unlocked via some downloaded software, but that the unlock code must be obtained from the manufacturer or provider.
Is there a way for me to receive an unlock code from Nokia or AT&T without them charging me an arm and a leg for it?
Thanks in advance for any insight you may be able to provide.
mp3 ring tone
I've looked through the manual and through Nokia's FAQ but had no luck in finding out how to turn my mp3s into a ring tone...
to use an mp3 as a ring tone.. you have to edit the mp3 in a software like garage band to say 30seconds or so.. then load it on the phone..
Battery life with no data pack
After this is done.. the 3 with the circle around it is gone from its old place by your battery symbol.
Enjoy nearly twice the battery life..
Poor game phone?
Screen time-out is about 5 seconds
Menu > Settings > Enhancements > Charger > Lights > On.
Lost the calculator
it is not on the tools menu like it is suppose to be. Did a reset but it is still not there.
Checked all menus just to see if somehow it moved but not there. Even checked the shortcuts and it is not there as a function. Is it just something stupid we are over looking?
looking for some help
I've been reading all sorts of reviews about this phone and I love it for it's features; the only drawback is the battery life. So my questions are as follows:
1) Does it really help in actuality to shut off the WCDMA stuff and change the packet data settings to only when needed? Is battery life really effected enough to notice?
2) Am I wrong in concluding that since this phone is supposedly capable of handling a 4GB memory card, which is only available in the SDHC format that it should also be able to work with the 8GB card as well or is there some kind of firmware l...
Battery: Yes there is an "as needed" WCDMA setting . I've been experimenting with it both ways and "as needed" has definitely stretched battery life from maybe a day int...
Anone out here ?
Downloading and running apps-anyone have a few ideas what to put on this phone?
Can it run Opera? How? Anyone done it? Does the phone have to be unlocked?
3g signal strength- maybe it's my area but getting a data connection is spotty. Sometimes web browsing, email, and yahoo work. Often they just don't connect.
More thoughts to come I'm certain-please, say HI if you're around.
Help with my memory card!!!
Cause whether I click into albums, artists, or genre and get empty lists. Except I know there's 3.5 GB of songs on there. Also last week I made one playlist with 77 songs. I can recall that playlist and all the songs show up. But that's all I get.
I've shut down the phone removed the card and put it back in. Nothing. I've tried updating the library. 5 times to no avail. Just tells me it updated 0 songs...
Also, anyone annoyed with the excessively loud speaker on this phone? Turn it up just a little bit and the distortion gets real bad. Same with my alarm. I'm not sure how to turn that thing down...
Can somebody confirm or give their first hand experience. Thanks.
Say the name as it appears in your phone book. It will not work well in a noisy area.
HELP with Alarm Volume!!
Battery Life - Extra Battery
I busted on my husband for buying his LG and not sticking to a Nokia the last time we upgraded. He had a lot of problems w/ his phone and a big issue was that his battery life stinks and mine is quite decent (6102). I just wanted to upgrade to a cooler looking phone and keep my excellent reception. So, I was leaning towards the 6555 but this poor battery life everyone mentions is scaring me. I'm quite shocked that Nokia would release this phone w/o fixing that BIG issue. It doesn't seem like Nokia to do this - create such a cool looking phone but have it have ...
