I just rang telecom, and they told me the Nokia 6165 is now available. But I should check if my local store has stock yet.

Yeah, it's back on the telecom site now too... Dang, I just purchased another phone - wish I'd waited.

if you buy one, take a close look around the display, check that there are not gouges near the little plastic bits and that the displays are not dusty. I have pulled mine to bits to fit a 6155 screen and it was no easy feat.

I knew that would happen, to someone at least. I was going to buy the Nokia 2865 on wednesday, which phone did you buy?

I ended up just getting the 2125 - it was only $99, so I'll probably just sell it then buy the 6165

I just got my 6165, last one in the store.

The GPS is cool, once it acquires that satellites.

That depends on how the store is processing your transaction. If it is a standard upgrade (i.e. the phone you purchased does not come with a preconfigured number) then it should not take more than 4 hours from the time the store submits the transaction. How ever this usually takes about 5 to 10 miniutes.

For a new connection (not preconfigured) again upto 4 hours but usually 5 to 10 miniutes.

For an ESN swap (i.e. preconfigured number placed on your existing habdset your number on the new handset) then upto 8 hours but again should not take this long.


For a disconnection of a preconfigured number and ESN change to your existing number again upto 8 hours but in reality this hardley ever takes the full 8 hours.

For mobile number portability then 24 hours is the normal.

Hope this helps?
