I bought the Nokia 6255 yesterday and have noticed that the aerial is slightly loose, I am worried about this. I recently had a treo thats screen cracked slowly over the period of a month but when I took it in for the repairs they claimed that it was a severe impact damage. If I had brought it in earlier they probably would have repaired it under warantee. The problem that I have is that if I take in the phone now they will probably fix it under waranty but if the aerial comes off within the waranty period then it will probably be my fault. I cant stand the thought of having a crap loan phone for another two weeks whilst this one is in being repaired. Are the aerials supposed to be wobbly to the touch?

Not a heck of a lot probably two millimeters over what would feel natural, it wobbles untill it sort of clicks and then goes a bit more. I can push the aerial base down into the phone further and the wobbling stops. Its not too much otherwise I would have taken it in, I am just slightly paranoid as my last phone broke and was not covered by warantee and this one is only a day old but already is having trouble with its MMC card. Maybe I should stop wobbling it or I might make a problem where there isnt one. The fact that you have a bit of give in yours is a bit of a relief.

Does anybody have problems with there mmc cards? My phone recognises it and then suddenly can not find it untill I remove the battery and turn it on again. I bought it thinking that the problems that people on this forum have been reporting must have all been fixed by now but it is problamatic. Otherwise its a great phone.

I get a couple of mm movement, back and forward only. I dont think its anything major. Though if you are concerned, take it to the shop you got it from and ask them about it.

As for the MMC card try formatting it with the phone, make sure the contacts are clean etc

I have a little movement on my aerial but nothing to be concerned about.

All I can compare it too is the crap display models that they have in store. The display model does not have any movement at all.

I've found the Telecom stores could not be more helpful when it came to problems with this phone.

Good they replaced the card, keep an eye on the aerial, if it gets any worse take it back straight away. Enjoy the phone though, im sure you'll love it

I've had my 6255 from pertty much day 1 and am one of the (rare?) people who has had not one problem with it - been great. There has been that slight play in the aerial since day 1 but it isn't a problem and has not changed at all since I got it so, for what its worth, I think you should be fine based on my experience.

Love my Nokia 6255 I've had since 21/4/05.
But the other day my Aerial cover broke :(
It always has been a bit wobbly but now its broken... Im not sure how I've done it? It dosent affect reception though. Just the light grey plastic casing that sticks out is broken the aerial its self still slides up & down ok.
