i bought a nokia 6255 about 2 weeks ago and i have nothing but good comments to say about it. It is a great phone, easy to use and does everything i want it to do and more.

I has one problem though. I installed the version of pc suite given with the phone and found it did not support the phone. I then downloaded the latest version off  www.nokia-asia.com . This site actually has a wizard to help you select the best version for your phone. After i installed it i had no problems whatsoever. the connection is use is bluetooth by using a usb bluetooth adapter ($25NZ) and it works great. naturally slower than cable

vineesh4u; I beleive 6.8 is the latest version for the 6255.

Not sure what you mean by this "How is the USB adapter connection different from the PC wire connection?"

Yes you can install java applications via PC Suite.

Cheers

There is only one way to hook up a 6255 to a PC using a cable and that is USB. So there is no difference. Its USB or nothing.

The USB adapter plugs into you PC and provides a connection to your phone via bluetooth.

The USB cable is faster when transferring data to the phone. Bluetooth data speed with the 6255 is only about 14-30 Kbps if i remember correctly. On my 6265 i can get abput 80-100Kpbs

Not sure of the cable speed, but it is faster than bluetooth on the 6255. I prefer Bluetooth because the cable is so expensive and i dont like cables everywhere
