The Nokia 6555 is a quad-band GSM/EDGE and dual-band WCDMA 850/2100 3G clamshell that also has two cameras for video sharing services. It is an addition to Nokia's style collection, and has a curved profile when open. The hinge is hidden, creating a smooth back to the phone. It has dual displays and the interior screen has QVGA resolution. The camera is 1.3 Megapixels and it also has Bluetooth, support for up to 4GB in the microSD slot, and it runs the Series 40 platform. It is available in several colors and goes on sale next month for 200 Euros.

What the?!

If you're going to add 850 WCDMA support, why not 1900 as well?

Because it's designed for Europe, Asia, and Australia, not Europe, Asia, and America.

whats up with 850/2100mhz

there have been a lot of newer phones coming with umts in 850/2100mhz. i do know that 2100 is used in europe. the only carrier i can think of that uses 850 is att, but they are using 850 and 1900.

i guess my question is this :
will this phone work ok on att's network only having 850mhz umts?

what percentage of thier network is 850 and what is 1900?
Will this phone work in the USA other than GSM/EDGE? We don't know if the frequencies for the 2.1ghz band is paired with the 1.7ghz (North America)or the 1.9ghz band (outside of North America). AT&T has 3G in both the 850mhz & 1.9ghz bands, so this ...
nokia has been finding that many ppl i nthe u.s. would like to buy one of their UMTS phones but w/o 850 or 1900 att's network would only provide gsm/edge services, they are just trying to allow consumers to purchase an unlocked nokia phone for use wit...
Again, 850/2100 is for Australia. Telstra (the largest Australian carrier) uses 850 for UMTS/HSDPA while all the others use 2100.
It is coming to AT&T with the 3G bands 850/1900. So hold your horses before you buy an unlocked version without all 3G bands. Dont nkow when, but its coming.

Photo ID

Can anyone tell me how to put a photo ID with a phone number on the CU 400; so when a person calls you don't have to guess as to whom it is? Thanks.

Fantastic looking handset...I love the long form factor.

Looks a lot like the KRZR 😳
Thin, long, has a chin, and a glossy front.

I've never heard someone refer to a phone as having a chin! That's awsome! 🀣 🀣 🀣

Wow-this thing is gorgeous!! Poor me, still stuck in my NE2 with Vz (lol). 😎
Kinda reminds me of a cross between a Moto v600 and a Moto Razr. 😁

Who is making the decisions at Nokia?

Why a handset with 850 and 2100 MHz WCDMA? At most this will give you partial 3G coverage in the US. Just what you need when traveling, complete coverage... πŸ™„

Why not just leave out the 850? NO solution is better than a half-assed one.
850/2100 is for Australia.
