Hi Folks. My Nokia 6225 broke. On-off switch came dislodged. I got it going again with masking tape. Yes.
I'm told I can pull the main chip from another 6225 board and put it in mine to save everything I've saved
on mine. Is this true? If so, can you help me identify the cpu chip?

Many thanks.

Hmmm. I think there are some confusing information there. The CPU is used to process data, not to store. The main memory (where data is stored) is usually solded into the motherboard, so you won't be able to remove it. Perhaps the person whol told you that was referring to SIM cards? Those are used on GSM phones, which is not this case.

Sometimes SIM cards can store information, depending on the phone, but they are very limited in size. Most phones store data in its memory and you can extract/synchronise this via USB cable and software. Some stores provide a service to backup your data when you buy another phone. But if the old one is not working, there is not much you can do about it.
