Other great features include no long distance or roaming fees across Cingular's national service area, the ability to track usage via text messages with an updated balance after each call, and the ability to refill your minutes 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
The 6102i's inner LCD display sports 128 x 160 resolution and support for 65,000 colors. The outside cover of the handset features a supplementary, 96 x 65, 4,000-color display that can display picture IDs, time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. The phone's VGA (640 x 480) camera unit is placed just above this display. Up and down buttons for volume control are placed on the left side, while most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad. There's also an input to accept universal hands-free headsets, as well as USB and infrared ports for transferring data to and from the handset.
The 6102i supports polyphonic ringtones, as well as MP3, MIDI, AMR, and True Tones-based music ringers so you can program your favorite songs to alert you of incoming calls. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from Cingular's MEdia Net service. Plus, with the phone's picture ID function, you can assign pictures to your most common callers. If you want to be discreet, there's also a vibrate ringer mode. Meanwhile, voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names. The 6102i's phone book will keep track of all your contacts, and address book capacity is only limited by the phone's 3.5 MB of built-in memory. There's also an integrated speakerphone for talking hands-free and, as mentioned, the phone's Bluetooth connectivity means that your favorite Bluetooth headset is fully compatible.
Messaging, Internet and Tools
The 6102i is built for powerful mobile messaging and Internet capabilities. With support for the MMS (multimedia messaging service), the phone can send picture, video, and text messages (Cingular messaging charges apply). When coupled with the 6102i's camera, MMS opens up great opportunities for robust messaging. Instant messaging via AOL, Yahoo, and ICQ instant messaging services are also supported, and the phone ships with a built-in email client that supports POP3 and IMAP protocols.
Getting on the Internet is easy with the 6102i, as well. It supports the GPRS data protocol, as well Cingular's high-speed EDGE wireless data service. There's also a built-in Web browser for MEdia Net downloads and mobile Web browsing. Cingular's MEdia Net service lets you receive and send emails, read news headlines, get weather updates, download games and ringtones, and more. T9 text entry, a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit–a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.
The 6102i also supports PC synchronization standards via USB or Bluetooth, which means you can manage and synchronize contacts, calendars, and other data with your PC. Nokia's PC Suite application makes this process a breeze. Other tools include an alarm, a voice memo recorder, a calendar, and a to-do list.
Imaging and Entertainment
The 6102i is designed for flexible mobile fun. The built-in VGA camera, which features a night mode for better low-light shots, captures stills and video clips (video clips are captured at 128 x 96 resolution). Meanwhile, an integrated FM radio makes it easy to tune in your favorite stations. Picture effects and custom screensavers, as well as backgrounds and themes, can be set up to fit your personality.
