Nokia 6101 / 6102
this or the samsung e635
Echoing when speaking on 6102
I have had this phone for 2 days, I'd upgraded a week ago to the SE Z520a and had to turn it back in because there were times I'd be talking and would get static through the ear piece, static which the other person could not hear and I could. So, since my last two phones were Nokia's I decided to try this one.
However, I have noticed that when calling or getting calls from some people I get a distinct "echo" when I speak. I was wondering, what is causing this? I have service through Cingular.
Would purchasing an ear piece (ear bud) fix this problem? This seems to happen consistently when calling my friend to her land-line. However, I've spoken to other people on landlines and have not had a problem.

Changing the 6101 faceplate
I FINALLY GOT IT!!!!!
Sending MP3's to use as ringtone
This phone has BUGS!
1) Pictures/backgrounds will not fill up the entire screen, there will be a white border around the edge.
2) When using voice commands the phone will reboot itself every so often.
The phone is pretty cool otherwise
RADIO FUNCTION 6102
Why is this list permanent?!?!
my zoom buttons not there
just one little problem, when i first got the phone the zoom function used to be the main button while i'm browsing through images. Recently i can't do that anymore, its changed to "send" for mms, and i have to go to options and then select zoom. Does anyone know how i can change it back?
Infrared (IrDa) vs data cable
Data Cable W/ CD
only thing im worried about the data cable is... whether or not the nokia software will recognize it?
need speakerphone assistance!
how bad is memory really?
i am contemplating buying this phone, but the only issue for me is memory.
So, how bad is it really? I mean, i dont plan to store hundreds of pics and MP3 files on it, but would i have enough space for, say 5-10 wallpapers, and perhaps as many nice polyphonic tones? And, of course, address book and calendar entries.
This is why the low call volume.
This single pinhole opening will frequently be pressed against the folds in the pinna of your ear, therefore the hole plugged up and you can't hear. I had to constantly be repositioning the phone against my ear to hear.
This is highly variable from one person to another.
This is why I had to return the phone.
Phone to replace 6102?
So - I have three days to choose another phone from the Cingular store. What phone would you recommend? I'm disappointed because I expected to be much happier with the 6102. I like flip phones in general but are the Nokia candy bar-type phones any better with volume? Are there any Samsung phones offered through Cingular that you think are great?
Thanks for any input!
