Poor build quality?

I have had the 6102 since the first day it came out. Now the black piece over the antenna has fallen off and a lot of the paint is wearing off as well. It hasn't been abused or anything just wear and tear from being in a pocket if any buddy else is having this problem can they please respond.

Troubleshooting Nokia 6102

Just purchased a used Nokia 6102 for Cingular network. Phone "looks" almost new. When I insert my ACTIVE Cingular SIM card, display still asks to "Insert Smart Chip". Also, noticed that the battery charge indicator COLOR is RED. On my other phone it's BLUE. I swapped batteries, but there is NO change. Any suggestions and comments will be appreciated.

Strange icon on clock/screensaver

Starting the other day, a new icon appears in the upper left corner of the clock/screensaver on the miniscreen. It looks like a phone handset with an arrow pointing at it from the left. It also appears in the clock screensaver on the main screen if the phone is left open.

I have no idea what it means or how to get rid of it. I've tried resetting the phone, deleted all messages, removed all call forwarding, no dice.

Any ideas?

Nokia 6102b -- Newbie questions re: switched networks & internet settings

Hi guys, hope someone is able to solve this for me.

I bought I brand new Nokia 6102b intended for the Cingular network and pre-loaded with all of its settings. I unlocked the phone in order to pop in my SIM and use it on my home network (Rogers Wireless here in Canada).

I performed a soft reset, but we're still on Cingular default settings.

In terms of general functionality (calls, camera & text), everything is working fine and dandy, but I can't get a few things to work:

1. I cannot edit the mobile browser settings in order to make it compatible with my local Rogers GPRS (WAP?) internet -- that is, it automatically dials the Cingular service when I hold "0". I called Rogers and they're not willing walk me through erasing th...

Infrared Troubles

I can't get my 6101 to connect to my PC via infrared. I start infrared via the menu, but the PC and phone never connect to one another. Is there some setting somewhere that might be messing me up?

How to upload pictures taken to PC?

I just got my Nokia 6102 phone and can't quite figure out how to upload the pictures I took with the camera phone to my PC.

What software/hardware do I need?

Looking at other postings in the forum, seems I can either use a data cable or infrared adaptor. Which is better? Do I need the Nokia PC Suite for either method? Can I download this suite from Nokia's website?

Any info is appreciated.

WARNING - 6101/6102 Charger Fire Hazzard?

The wall charger for my new 6102 phone seems to have shorted out internally, causing the wall outlet to burn up as well as the wires in the box. Not good. Not good at all.

See my post here for photos: »

I know this charger is used for the 6101 too, but I don't know if any other phones use the same charger (AC-3U). I just wanted to post the warning to keep an eye (or nose?) out for this problem. Hopefully it is just an isolated problem with the one that I had.

missed call / voicemail / text on mini display

Hi there,

I just got my 6102. I'm disappointed that the mini display doesn't tell me whether or not I missed a call or received a message or anything. Instead it just has the time displayed as a screensaver. Is there any way to get remove that clock or otherwise get the mini display to let me know whether I have a message or a missed call?
