What's Stored on the MMC Card?

I am considering the Nokia 6255i, but what is stored on the mmc card on these type of phones? Is it just for mp3s, or also for contacts/sms etc...? Also do I need to use a dual-voltage mmc card to read it on a computer?

Has bluetooth been locked on the 6256?

NOT A Durable Phone

Just a shout out to anyone with or considerin' this phone, on any carrier... it ain't durable.

Good friend a'mine has had one for only a little over a year, and its now badly cracked at the part that holds the hinge (not the hinge itself). He didn't drop/abuse it, and the crack is widening/getting worse with normal use. This is the BODY of the phone, so... not reparable. He's soon gonna have to chuck the phone after only a year. Sad

Good phone in most other ways though. Too bad Nokia didn't build it to last.

Identifying icons on the main display (User Manual incomplete)

I am trying to learn what those icons on the main display mean when phone is in standby mode. This is a task bc the user manual (page 11) fails to identify some of the icons that I am seeing on my 6256i.

1. At the top of the screen, what is the meaning of a round black ball surrounded by two pairs of parentheses?

2. On the far left upper side of the main display, what is the meaning of what seems like a 3-pronged pitchfork standing on its end with horizontal bars over it? Right now it is TWO horizontal bars but I suspect those bars change.

Roaming and Multimedia Messages

I have a Cellular one 6255i on an Alltel Account. Everything works well except for sending picture messages. Anyone know if changing something within the program will allow me to send pictures? Also not as important, but the phone always says roaming, is there a way to override this?

Nokia 6255i Just S**ks A**

I have had a total of two different phones since April 2006 and the phones have spent more time getting repaired then they have in my possession. It seems like the phones are having the same problem

1. Phone is always dropping calls while in use or you don’t get them because they went straight to your voice mail. Signal wise is full bars
2. When someone calls you and you have them stored in you address book, the phone will do a double ring. If you catch it quick enough you will see who it is on the first half wring, but if not then all you see is a phone number that is being displayed on the second wring.
3. The phone will shut down by its self when someone calls you even if the battery is fully charged. Sometimes I have eve...

FM Reception??

I've done all sorts of searches but I can't find where anyone says anything good or bad about the FM radio reception.

Other than using a phone to be a phone I don't use many of the features on todays phones, but a FM radio, I could/would use that for ballgames and such.

So to anyone that has one or has had one, how's the FM reception? Also does using it suck the battery down quickly?
