Anyone out there with a Nokia 6120 thats gets too hot to hold against your ear. Finally got Telstra to change my useless LGTU 550. The Nokia is far superior on reception and easy to use but if on the phone for more than a couple of minutes it just gets too hot to hold against my ear, just wondering if they are all like this or have I got another dud.

Can't say I've noticed it getting hot, but then rarely use it for longer than a few minutes at a time except when on the net.

My better half has a Samsung that does the same thing and while on the charger as well. We been told not to worry about it.
I believe that is what the latest technology is......can't see any of them last.
My 6250 was 7 years old with the first battery still in it........I don't think we be saying that about today's phones in 7 years.

Hi Rossco

I have just switched to the Nokia N95. I was after the 6120 until the rep showed me a couple of 6120's that had become that hot the screens cracked.

Hi Rossco,
I have an N95 also. Great camera, but lousy battery life (one day max even if hardly used) and almost impossible to get satellite connection for the GPS function. Just wondering if yours is similar or have I got a dud?
Cheers

Part of the problem with the GPS function is that it isnt actually true GPS like a dedicated unit.
It uses what is called AGPS or assisted Gps which uses the cellphone network towers to help find where it is. Result cant see the towers, helps it to get lost.
Wouldnt go toooo well in the middle of the Simpson I wouldnt think.

I use a Nokia N70 with a Bluetooth GPS and Tom Tom Mobile 5 and it always knows where I should be even when Im not.
LOL
Cheers

Ive only had my 95 for a couple of days but I have only recharged it once so battery in mine is ok. With the GPS I turned assisted off and still get a lock from cold in about a minute. Yesterday I was siting outside of the local council chambers and it had my position spot on. Its far from perfect though. It didnt know about the shopping centre that was 200m away even though it had been there for 5 years.

Of course they are only as good as the maps that are installed in them and some have more POI's than others. My laptop which has Copilot on it has too many POI's and they are a bloody nuisance at times. It still wants to show them even when I tell it not to.
Needs a good smacking I think

Yep I have one and it does the same. You really notice it when you change to the other ear. And only takes about 10 minutes to get hot. Its the antenna end (top) that gets hot and not the battery too.....which is a worry to my brain ;))

Yep mine does that and when ever possible I just put it on the loud speaker to keep it away from my head.Not always possible with private conversations but works talking to mates etc.
