2GB MMC card for mp3 media player

Hi, I'm with the US Cellular thus my mp3 media player is unlocked. I'm using a 512MB MMCplus card to play mp3 files. I wanted to upgrade to a 2GB card, however, as noted in the other forum the maximum amount of tracks the media player can recognize is 200 which defeats the purpose of going above a 1GB card.

Q: has anyone actually tried a 2GB card to use with the mp3 media player? If so, could you actually see more than 200 tracks and were there any performance issues?

Crying or Very sad I just registered to this site and was wondering if there is anyone out there that has this phone through Verizon. If so were you able to get the MP3 ringtones working.

Text Settings Menu Help. Diego solution?

This is my second 6255i (as a few days ago my first decided to swim a few laps in the toilet... and I had to get another one.) My first one was great. I know how to use Diego and used it to enable all the mp3 as a ringtone stuff.

But my problem is the Text Message Settings menu. My old phone was fine when I got it, so I never even opened this menu or changed any of the settings. But my new one is not set to my likings... The default font size is set at Normal and I would like it at Large. I can change this in the text editor, but it won't save the change. The user guide says:
Menu>Message>Text Messages>Message Settings>Other Settings.
And I've gotten that far. But once I'm looking at those settings, None of the ones I want to cha...

6256i and 6255 idea?

Now we know thta mp3 player on the 6256i is limited, but I dont have the nokia pc suite or the data cable, but here's an idea. What if someone had the 6255 phone would that person be able to take the mp3 player funtions from that phone then create a file and then be able to transfer the application to a 6256i phone? I've never used the data cable or pc suite, so it's just an idea, has anyone tried this or though of it?

Some important questions

Well I've had this phone for a few months now with Verizon. The main reason I bought it because Circuit City had a sale at there Verizon stand after xmas for the phone with a Jabra bluetooth headset for 30 bucks, and it has been pretty good, but some of the features like picture ID on the mini display are nowhere to be found even though on the box it came in there is a pic ID on the mini display. I'm also dissapointed in the lack of ringtone support for the phone. There is absolutely nothing for it. And if I want anything I guess I have to create my own tone, which I havent tried yet.

Is there really no way to get picture IDs on the main screen?

Is there anyway to change text on the displays, because when you change your wallpaper you ...

Phone powering itself off...

Over the last few days I've started having issues with my phone, it first powered itself off with about half a charge, so I wrote that off.

Today, it was plugged into the charge, on one moment, off the next, without my touching it.

All night tonight, the phone turned itself off, intermittently-- at least 3 times. I am not pleased. Anyone else had similar issues?

Hing Defect

I recently returned my 6255i, I got the phone in May (one of the first ones sold). The hing had developed a small crack that was slowly growing. Upon returning the phone for a new one (under warranty with Cellular South) I spoke with 4 sales reps there who all had the phone as their personal handset; every one of them had a crack in the same place.

I would advise you guys (especially those of you who got it early) to take a good look at the outside portion of the hing on your phone to look for such cracking, if you don't catch it soon enough you end up out of warranty with a busted hing on a phone that wasn't cheap.

Display Screen Disappoints!

Is anyone else disappointed by the color quality on the display screen of the 6256i? I was expecting much better resolution and quality.

I just recieved my phone last night and am still debating on whether or not to keep it. So if you have issues with the quality of the display, please tell me how you "overcame" your disappointment. If that makes sense!

Verizon Stores Don't Carry Nokia 6256i

Why don't Verizon stores carry the Nokia 6256i? It is only available at Best Buy and Radioshack and online. Best Buy and Radioshack claim that the new every two is not valid in their stores. Furthermore, Best Buy has the phone but not on display like they are trying to hide it. The cost is outrageous anywhere from $249 to $299. And the guy at Radioshack told me that in another month they are droppping Verizon and going to sell Cingular crap. If you can't use your new every two on a Verizon phone you want then that is just plain stupid. I'm seriously thinking of going to Alltel but Verizon's network and price plans are better.
