Anyone using a 1GB MMC Card?

ash

I just bought this Nokia 6620 Toy. I am thinking of using it as an MP3 player as well. For that I am thinking of inserting a 1GB MMC Card. Few questions:

1) Can this phone take a 1GB MMC card and address all the memory. Has anyone tried this?

2) How is the experience using this phone as an MP3 player. Does the MMC card provide non-jerky transmission of data to play songs.

3) The manual says that you can not substitute an SD card instead of an MMC. My research on SD/MMC shows that they are mostly interchangeable. Does anyone has any experience trying out an SD card instead of an MMC?

Thanks.

I am looking at the same utilization of the phone. MP3 playback is good when using the Nokia supplied stereo headset.

SD won't work. It has a different interface and slightly different form factor.

There doesn't seem to be much in the way of speed grades for MMC but that is probably a critical factor as to whether the 1G memory would work.

I got my 1GB MMC just the other day and it works like a champ! I use the phone as my MP3 player all the time!

I got mine from amamax.com. I got the power on test before shipping and the extended express warranty and it came to something like $93 I think. I thought it was a great deal. Still working like a charm.

i've been reading a different 6620 thread above saying how people have had problems with their phones locking up with aftermarket MMC cards in them, and after they put back the factory 32M card, it doesn't lock up anymore. I'm with verizon at the moment (and unfortuantely for quite a few more months) and i'm almost dead set on switching to Cingular. I'm looking at either the 6620 or 6230 and want to know what quirks are going on with them. have any of you had these lock up problems?

The issue with the lock up problems was cured by the following..dont store your ringtones on you MMC..if you download program and install them on your phone, install them to phone memory..use your MMC to store you mp3's, photos and videos and you will not have a problem..phone internal memory is 12MB and that is sufficient for ringtones games and programs..also, I install my themes to my MMC also.

some brands don't work. i tried it out. i'm currently running on a 1/2 Gig and have very few problems. when i play music it freezes up sometimes. to solve that problem, put your phone profile on offline

I got a Kingmax 1GB MMC card from newegg.com for $80 delivered (in two days!)
It worked fine when i first popped it in, but then i made the mistake of trying to format the card from the phone. During the 1st 2 attempts, 15 min into the format process, it would stop and say corrupt card. On the 3rd try it worked (dont ask what I did - I have no idea and I'm kinda surprised I had the patience to do it so many times) Now it works flawlessly - only the game Doom has had a problem (not the cards fault as the version of symbian Doom I got will not run from a card - only from phone mem) What I'm looking for now is a good U.S. map program (non gps) but thats another issue...hope this all helps
