Hi folks, I'm new to this site and was wondering if anyone has experienced the problems we are having with our Nokia 6225 phones. Since rolling out the mobiles we have had lots of complaints from the users of calls going straight to voicemail even when there is a strong signal and long delays in getting notified of a new message. These problems are occuring in central city Auckland, Wellington & Christchurch. I have taken this up with Telecom but I'm interested to hear if others have had these issues.

Also does anyone have any recommendations of a good Telecom phone for mainly business use?

Cheers

I've heard nothing but good things about Sanyos? perhaps have a look at the Sanyo range. the Pantech TX130c is a good phone, not really business orientated.

The nokia 6225 has been one of the most popular selling business models. i owned one for nearly a year and loved it, no such problems anywhere in the country.

what does telecom say about the problems?

Telecom ask for details on what time the call came in, where the user was etc and then tell me they couldn't find anything wrong on the network at the time. We've tried swapping out hardware when we thought it was just 2 or 3 people with the problem but that made no difference & now it's more widespread. The interesting thing is that most of the users complaining about it used to use Vodafone.

The other thing about the 6225 is why did Nokia make it so long winded to send a text message? Was it designed for the US market?

Thanks for the info to those who have posted so far, hope to hear some more.

The 027 nokias are shocking to send text messages and practically anything else and sound especially hard and shrill to the poor caller. I did kinda like my 6225 but it was hard to txt on, had squashed together keys and screen was so 1996 STN.
My old 025 was simple as to send a TXT, 1 more step than a similar Vodafone but easy. (8260 vs 8210)

The CDMA phones are all created for the US market and it shows.

I like my Sanyo, I'm not sure why coz when I first touched them I thought they were horrible, I still think it's quirky, but nice.
Much easier to TXT on and voice sounds a lot better.

The 6225 is easy to text from. Simply press the left button, type message, press green send button and select number and your done. Simple!!

I had original firmware as well, though later updated. Using the green button cuts a few steps out of the process, use it when finished writing text and when selecting number.

Works for all nokias. Texting and MMSing
