6236i recycles often when I get a call

I am on my 2nd unit showing this behavior: when it rings, I either pull it out of the holster, or start to pick it up from a table, and it immediately goes dark, and in 1-2 seconds I see the icons and info on the display start "coming back" as if it did some kind of recycle, although not a full power recycle. This happens about 20-25% of the time (and always my wife calling since those are about 90% of my incoming calls - she gets kicked into my VoiceMail since I apparently drop off the network, but we have a routine worked out - if she loses the call after about 2 rings, she gives me about a minute to call her ;-)

I thought maybe I was getting a static electricity effect when sliding it out of the holster since the lining on one side see...

Games on this phone?

I noticed there were two user reviews, I wanted to ask those folks or anyone who has this what games come preloaded on the phone. I have the 6255i right now, and love the chic pinball and was hoping something like that would be included with this phone.

My co-worker showed me the memory card slot on this phone. I was wondering what type of card it takes.

My vibrator is broken!

Crying or Very sad
...and not in a good way Wink

I love this phone, had it about 6 months but now the vibrate is sporadic - sometimes it works, sometimes not. While ringing sometimes I can tap the phone against a table and it'll start vibrating again, then it stops working a day or two later. ARgh, just when I thought I'd found the perfect phone!

I downloaded some ringtones, but I cannot seem to be able to assign the to individual contacts. Does any one know how to solve the problem.

Good phone for Alltel?

Hi, i have a razr but am looking for something that isn't so fragile feeling. It has stood up to a lot, but feels like it will break every time you open it. Is this the best non-flip handset on the Alltel network? If not, what is? Price is not an object. Also, if anyone has any information on new phones coming out in the next couple of months, that would be very helpful. Thanks Smile .

Google Maps on 6236i working

The possibility of getting live traffic info on my phone through google maps prompted me to finally get java working and install it. Works great, even satellite imagery.

The download links took a long time to find, so i thought i'd post them here: ... » ... »

I used Diego and Mobimb to get this working.

I am looking at buying the 6235i because of its mp3 ringtone capabilities. Will someone who has it tell me if I can use the mp3s on my computer as ringtones, and if so, do I have to buy a special data cable?

Battery Life

Hey all,

I just got the nokia, and I've been having horrible battery life. Under normal use, two or three short calls, the battery lasts only two days. Is anyone else having this problem. How long are your batteries lasting?

Display and Missed Calls/VM Indicator

I am thinking of getting this phone. One thing I was wondering about the display and missed calls. I noticed that it is a color screen and it has a screensaver. I have noticed that with many other color screen phones, the display not only dims, but it completely shuts off after a certain amount of time, and you have to hit a button to turn it back on. I would prefer to just be able to glance at my phone to see if there are any missed calls or voice mails, especially when I'm driving, instead of having to pick it up and "wake it up". Is that possible with this phone?

If so, where is the best place to buy it if I am not ready to renew my contract? Verizon's full retail price is over $200 and that is too much for me.

Does anyone know if the price of this phone will be going down any time soon for Verizon? This would be much appreciated.

hands-free headset recommendation?

Can anyone recommend (or dis-recommend) a headset for this phone? The Verizon website has three options, all of which seem overpriced, and the Nokia site has one or two that are cheaper and look good, but it's hard to tell. The Nokia site shows one headset ("coming soon") that will work both for the phone and the radio. Would this dual headset be useful to have? (I just ordered my phone online so I don't have it yet.)
