Hey ya'll. I have recently purchased a Nokia 6225 mobile phone and i have a tiny problem. Whenever i recieve a MMS the phone ALWAYS beeps. even when the whole phone is set to silent it still beeps. Have i just got an old version of the software or is this a well known problem? Because it's extremely annoying.

I would say the network is compressing the image down to ensure compatibility with all handsets. I would expect to see minor adjustments made to the photo messaging platform over time as the tweak it for best performance.

I will happily give you a full refund for all the photo messages you have sent from that handset so far...

Hi all, we have two Nokia 6225's and one 3205 - both capable of MMS and photo messaging. My comment relates to how these 6225's recieve a photo message. It seems that if i take a snap on a 6225 and send it to my 3205 the picture is as i took it, however if i recieve photo from either another 6225 or 3205 etc the picture is really distorted and the whole message is shrunk to under 2Kb.

After 4 phone calls to Telecom i finally got to speak to someone who seems to know. There has been a firmware upgrade to the 6225's in the last few weeks that supposed to fix this issue with 6225's recieving photo's.

now we all have to take our phones into a Telecom dealer with proof of purchase for them to reprogram and flash our handsets. $500 and we all have to send them back. No mention of a recall.

Typical Telecom, sell us locked up functionless paperweights.

BTW you can check your firmware version with *#837# if it reads "V H100V0700.nep" and you have a 6225, this means your handset requires the upgrade and recieving photos will be poor until you do.

The latest version for the 6225 is VH100V1900.nep this was released on the 24th August 2004. There have been no further updates or revisions. The service agent in NZ for Nokia is Accord Customer Care. I suggest that you send them an email to find out what paper work they need from you service@accordccs.co.nz

There should not be a charge as this firmware release fixes known issues.
