Maybe a DKU 2 from memory (bad memory even...)
Bluetooth would be a good option too - far more convenient than a cable.

That cable unfortunately was for the older type nokias.

You need the CA-42

Yup. If I remember when I researched it, the 6255 will work with the CA-42. But if you check Nokia's site the DKU-2 is their listed compatible cable. We've got our own version in developement, but I don't have a release date. I'll need to check into it.

Nokia's compatibility list is at :,,34250,00.html

DKU-2 works / DKU-5 doesn't.

I got one of these and works fine.
