New Nokia PC Suite

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.nokia (More info?)

I just downloaded the new Nokia Suite 6.1 today and it is very nice compared to
the past version 5.6 that I was using. It has some new features, including the
one to transfer images from the phone to the PC that wasn't in the other
version.

Give it a try if you haven't.

    Here's a dumb question maybe you can answer- is the a "generic" Nokia
    PC suite for all current Nokia phones? My 3650 has it's own "PC Suite
    for 36xx" that never has worked right (Nokia Connection Manager says
    my phone is connected, but PC Suite 3650 says it isn't!)

    Lastly (just venting now) what increadible "magic" do these stupid
    suite programs do that require them to be 30+ MB! Whole operating
    systems took less space just a few years ago. I just want to back up
    and edit my phonebook for crissakes!

    it comes with all the new nokia phones, and yes its very good. Although my
    system slows down when its showing those splash screens (the way it fades in
    then out)

    Yes, pc suite 6 is a 'universal' piece of software for Windows 2000
    and XP but isn't for the symbian range of phones.

    30Mb is nothing on a 120GB harddrive? upgrade your harddrive.

    Datasuite = compatiability for most nokia phones so they save money not
    making loads of different versions + having to update those versions

    sound converter it tells me files are corrupt and to reinstall.

    I can't really answer your question. I never used anything except the 5.6 and
    now the 6.1. And I never tried anything with any of the other phones I have had
    until I got the (company provided) 6200. I now have that 6200 and the newer
    6820. Both work wonderfully with the new software but the 6820 didn't work well
    with the previous version!

    I have a 120GB drive, thank you. My HD size is no excuse for
    bloatware.

    Then why do I need different Suites for my 3650 and 6610? ;-)


    > + having to update those versions

    Why not create modular software? I don't have every printer driver
    ever written installed on my PC- likewise, why doesn't PC Suite
    utilize "drivers" or "modules" for just the 3 or 4 phones I own?

    I know the "bullet" features of the s/w, I'm just saying it's bloated,
    and has that Microsoft-style hubris ("we're going to take over your
    com port and you can't use it for anything else"). I love dedicating
    a com port to a piece of software I use maybe once a month to backup a
    phone!

    Sorry to offend- I love Nokia's phones, I've just never seen anything
    to like in any version of data suite I've ever used, going back to
    version 2...
