phantom instant messages?

I just had the internet reactivated on my 6102. I've had it for a year now but never had the internet on it. Since I've gotten home and been on aim on my home computer, my phone keeps alerting me that I have "new item instant messaging", and when I go to read them the im client sign on screen comes up.
I don't have any information entered in any of them. I tried turning my phone off and back on and then I just got the two alerts I had missed


what the crap?!

I swear, it's about to drive me crazy because it won't let me silence my phantom im alerts either.

Anyway, thanks.

reset codes

I have this phone on my family plan but would like to wipe it out. What are some *# codes for this phone? I'd like to see the firmware, and possibly update it. Also it would be great to format it.

6102i (Cingular) would it work in Israel?

Would the 6102i from Cingular work in Israel? If so, would it roam with Orange (IL).

Is there a way to switch frequencies so it would work in Europe as well? It's been a while since I used a Nokia, so does the old *3001+12345# still work to change frequencies?

Getting an MP3 ringtone onto 6103

Hi there, I have a TMobile Nokia 6103. I want to put a small song clip onto the phone (MP3 format), as a ringtone. Somebody said that you can transfer an MP3 to the phone via Bluetooth. How do I do that?

Thanks for any help! Laura

Nokia 6102i Problems

I've noticed a couple programmed problems with my new Nokia 6102i.

Anyone else out there have some answers to help???

1. When my flip is closed, and I want to NOT answer a call, I can hit the VOLUME DOWN button to silence the ringer, but can not send the caller immediately to voice mail (ie: when the flip is open, I can silence the ringer using the RIGHT soft key, then hit the same key again to send the caller immediately to VM). Is there a way to do this with the flip closed?

2. With the flip closed, I use the VOLUME DOWN button to (hopefully) decrease the ringer volume. Even if I turn it all the way down, that does nothing to my ringer volume. It only decreases my ear volume! Everyone else find this to be true. How do ya turn down...

voice dial

1. Does the phone have to be open to voice dial?
2. Can you voice dial through the blue tooth headset without doing anything to the phone first? Seems illogical to have to get out the phone and mess with it to voice dial with BT

Speaker Phone Questions

Had this phone 3 days. STILL trying to figure out the QUICKEST (least steps/keystoke) method to switch to speaker phone after I answer? I can't take my eyes off the road to scroll through a host of menu's and can't seem to discover any shortcuts to get onto the speaker phone as soon as I answer. Any experts out there who may help?
