This is very irratating.

I fully charge the phone, when I take it off the charger that battery meter keeps reading really low battery and turns off.

Other times the phone will stay on for a full day at reading very low, it will then change between the screen being to dark to see and the speaker making really wierd noises.

Its very strange... Im looking at getting a Nokia 6225 just becuase this phone has caused me heaps of hassels already without this problem.

P.S It also once powered off, it keeps the backlight on for like another 24 hours. It is really wierd.

Any comments on the 6225 would be appreciated.

If you haven't already, I'd suggest taking the phone back to the agent. It obviously isn't working properly and should be a warranty issue.

You'll have to part with your phone for a little while (depending on how quick MFR is) but you should be able to get it fixed.

Ok. I'll probably just buy a new phone and look at getting this one fixed.

I had a TX115, and the ringer speaker died on me. It was under warranty, but it had suffered impact damage earlier in its life. I don't know if the impact damage would have been the cause of the fault, but I was worried that MFR would charge an inspection fee if they declined my warranty claim, so I instead decided to take the opportunity to buy a better handset.

I ended up with a Sanyo 8200 and, whilst I was generally reasonably happy with the TX115 when it was working, I have to say that the 8200 seems like a much more dependable handset.

Hmm, currently tossing up between the 6225 Nokia and that Sanyo 8200.

I considered the 6255 but, in hindsight, it was probably a good thing that I decided against it because if I had bought one, then it would have been when they were first released, so I would have got caught up in the dodgy firmware fiasco.

At the end of the day, there wasn't much advantage to me buying a 6255 because I already have an iPod so I don't need the music player. Bluetooth wasn't much use to me either because I tend to use Wifi hotspots in favour of CDMA data because of the cost and, whilst it would have been nice to use bluetooth to sync my contacts, I don't think this handset is compatible with iSync anyway.

The 8200 doesn't have any features that are really impressive, but it does the basics brilliantly.

Bluetooth headsets are great. Now that I have one, I would sacrifice lots of other features for it...

Both are nice phones.
