I used to have an old 6210 aswell

Cheers for the tip on putting images up

A very good price.

I still use my 6210 as my handsfree for the car! (well the car came with the kit, and it's works well - so why not)

Is the GPS features free to use (ie you don't have to pay data charges) when you purchase the correct maps?

still trying to figure that one out myself

Something i would like to ask, does this run the symbian software found on the n96/n85/n95 range?

So the phone can be used as a 3G modem using nokias software?


edit :Well ive answered my own question, according to the spec it should, but i would like to know if anyone here has one and it def works!

The GPS tracking ability is FREE, BUT it will get assistance from the network to get a quicker satellite fix which will incur a charge fraction of a penny every time you can turn this feature off.

In Nokia maps navigation software you can download the complete UK map from your computer to the phone (if not already pre-installed) so your not downloading maps constantly as you go so there again FREE,

you only pay a subscription monthly CHARGE if you want voice guidance and that's optional.

also, its vodafone pre pay? what does this mean? pay as you go? also is this phone sim locked? and can it be unlocked?

They are discontinued now and hence the price has dropped. They are available on many websites and surely cheaper then £170

I think the Navigator models come with 6m free navigation licence (voice guided navigation).

You can load Tomtom on anyway and use for free, or use the GPS with Google maps

Unfortunately car SatNav software doesn't utilise the compass, so it is only of benefit on foot and with streaming data services, so you are at the mercy of phone signal an data roaming rates which is a killer abroad.. I was excited about this before it was released, but it is useless to me without driving support.

PrePay means that you have to put money on the phone before you can call, hence it's PAYG. The alternative, PostPay, would be contract. I'd imagine the phone will be locked and heavily branded in terms of software and probably externally too. Unlocking? No idea.

Also, you asked if the 6210 runs on a Symbian setup like the N-Series. I can't imagine that it does, as it's not a smartphone, I don't think.

This is a good phone, the Mrs has had few about 9 months.

Could not get tomtom to work with the internal gps, installed a different sat nav software and that works great.

It DOES run the symbian software like the n-series, so you can install many apps

Nokia maps only comes with 6 months license, after that it's £6 a month, which i think is a complete rip off.

Turn the Assisted GPS off, as it cost you money. It only takes about 30 seconds to get a valid GPS signal

Exactly, misleading description, please change. Warm deal at best.

I have just sent one of these off to be recycled - got £84 quid for it. Not sure which company, think it was 'cashformyfone' or similar via quidco. Found the phone poor for sat-nav, even with the free subscription it was very slow to find gps signal. Would not recommend to anyone.

I don't know why this has resurfaced if you look at the top i posted it over 4 months ago.
It was cheap then

Lol, i was half asleep last night and ordered this!

I`m sending it back and getting one on ebay!

i have just sold this phone on ebay got it as a upgrade 6 months ago i hated this phone battery only lasted a day the sat nav was poo, only made 66 quid on ebay in great condition.

This phone is absolute rubbish. I had one and sent it back. Beware. Check out reviews before you part with your cash.

I would have to agree, I could not get on with this phone at all, hated the buttons, sat nav was disappointing couldn't install tom tom, so sold it to cex and bought a N95.:roll:
