piece of junk!

Posted on: February 21st, 2009 by mike b

The good: doesn't matter. The bad: No battery life whatsoever.They had to replace the battery three times in 4 months.Also the battery heats up to the point that it burns your ear.It drops calls or shuts off completely.The phone has been replaced with a "refurbished" one,but the problems persist.Also, the customer service at Nokia is very very POOR!Summary: THIS PRODUCT (NOKIA 6555) SHOULD BE RECALLED.THE BATTERY(BL-5C ) GETS DANGEROUSLY HOT.I was told by Nokia that the battery was on their "advisory", whatever that means, but each time they replace it , I end up with the same problems.

NOKIA 6555 is a piece of junk

Posted on: October 8th, 2008 by Jim W

The good: Sleek DesignThe bad: Non-existant battery life, turns off by itself, crappy speakerphone, poor choice of ringtonesSummary: I have had my 6555 for 9 months. Am currently looking at replacing it. The battery has no life at all. It is needing to be charged by 3 o'clock in the afternoon. The speakerphone volume is poor. The only thing I like about the phone is the size.

Phone is Ok. Battery life is a myth

Posted on: April 12th, 2008 by Carl Taylor

The good: Seems to get good reception and voice clarity on the phone speaker. Address book is very good and comprehensive. Syncing with Outlook on my computer via bluetooth is great and totally automatic.The bad: Nowhere near 6.5 hours talk time. More like 1.5. External speaker not great. Need to turn down the volume in order to prevent distortion in speakerphone conversations and ringing. Morally bankrupt service providers (Such as Fido) are able to lock out features such as mp3 ringtones in order to extort extra money from their subscribers.Summary: I purchased this phone for 3 reasons. 1. Bluetooth 2.0 capabilities for connection to my car hands free and head set. 2. Advertised talk time and battery life. 3. Advertised (On Nokia's web site specifications) ability to play mp3 ringtones and use them as a sort of caller id. Well 1 out of 3 isn't too bad I guess. After purchasing this phone I found it was really easy to transfer my previously purchased mp3 ringtones via bluetooth to either the phone memory or the microSD card. I was really happy about that until I went to use them and got the "Not allowed by activation key" error. After talking with both Nokia and Fido I was basically told that the ringtones have to be drm enabled in order to be played. I was told this is to protect the Artists rights. I have a couple of problems with that explanation. 1. Why are only the ringtones protected and not the actual music player? 2. Why should I have to pay $3.00 or more for a 30 second clip of a song when the whole song can normally be purchased for $0.99. Obviously this is simply the service provider distorting the intended use of DRM and trying to create some extra revenue. Personally when my contract with Fido expires I will be moving to a service provider that has higher ethical standards than this. I quite like the phone and would even be willing to put up with the mythical battery life. But I like my ringtones. and since the manufacturer (Nokia) is complicit in this scheme by allowing Fido and other service providers to alter their phone in this manner i will be given this phone a lower score than I might otherwise have given it.

Full featured and good performance, but flimsy

Posted on: March 11th, 2008 by Geoff Fors

The good: Small size, good voice quality, lots of featuresThe bad: Flimsy construction, fragile, slippery plastic housing hard to graspSummary: We got these phones with our AT&T (ex-Cingular) GSM account in December 2007 ( 2 phones.) While they have great voice quality and good performance, they are in my opinion about as robust as a canary. The plastic shell is soft, too slippery and thin. Dropping it or accidentally sitting on it when it's in your pocket will likely result in a cracked and broken LCD display either on the back side or interior screen. The menus are arranged to direct you into pay-extra services when first opened, such as AT&T's music downloader, instead of something more obvious and useful such as the address book. The "push to talk" button (should really be "push for extra charges") is too close to the earpiece volume control buttons for me and easy to hit by accident. One of our 6555's comes up with "SIM card not initialized" regularly for no reason and has to be turned off and re-booted to clear this. I use the phone about an hour a day and it requires charging every other day for 2.5 hours, which is better than my previous phone. The charger jack is on the side instead of the bottom, making it awkward to use the phone while the charger is in use. In my opinion, this is another example of the latest 3G phone with too many features you don't need and will never use (unless you are a trendy high school kid.) A minor inconvenience is that the backlights on the keyboard, and the screen, don't stay lit long enough. Pause while dialing a number manually and everything will go dark until the next key is pressed, which is awkward in the dark. The display is a decent size and bright (so far) and the menu button easy to use. I haven't used the camera, so can't comment on it. All in all, I am satisfied with this phone, which is what AT&T is presently giving you here when you initiate service with a contract, however I am constantly worried about accidentally breaking it, which I never was with any other phone.

Nokia 6555 Cell Phone

Posted on: December 15th, 2007 by Rita Weiss

The good: internal antenna, sleek clamshell design make this phone better than my Nokia 6105a.The bad: The camera is easy to use, but I have yet to figure out how to email pictures directly from the phone. You can bluetooth or text the pictures to another phone, (and then send to your email from that phone) but not straight to your email without a special usb adaptor link that you must purchase/order separate. Summary: We love this phone. It was a decent price, and it has great graphics and enough music featues to impress my first time, cell phone owning teenage son.
