In the past, I had always used the cheapest phone (e.g., Nokia 3120) and a separate PDA (Palm V). I decided to converge both the phone and PDA into one device.

So far, I am extremely disappointed with the phone Why?

(1) Nokia PCSuite does not support mapping different Outlook 2003 contact folders to different 6682 contact groups. PCSuite takes all the contacts in my Personal Folders/Contacts and dumps them into phone in one lump. For example, I can't map Personal Folders/Contacts/Work to a Work contact group and Personal Folders/Contacts/Personal to a Personal Contact Group. Both Work and Personal contacts are dumped into the default phone contact group.

(2) I haven't been able to get Nokia PCSuite to update Calender + Contacts + Notes in one sync operation. I have to sync Calender, change sync setting, sync Personal Folders/Contacts/Work, change sync settings, sync Personal Folders/Contacts/Personal, change sync settings, sync Notes.

I wasn't so upset about the free PCSuite software not working well because I could buy better 3rd party software. Wrong. While Symbian is an open OS, the Nokia API to the 6682 is not. Developers have to pay to be part of the Nokia PRO program to get access to the API. I've found only one developer that has done that (Oxygen Phone Manager, based in Russia). It appears to be good stuff, but it is very picky on which PCs it will run - lots of standard software seems to conflict with it. I am one of the lucky ones - it blue screens on my laptop. And it's difficult dealing with tech support on the other side of the world.

Anyhow, none of the other major developers (Intellisync, etc.) support the Nokia API for the 6682. I'd be ecstatic if someone told me I am wrong.

(3) You can't add most of the applications to the Go To menu. The option to do so just isn't available even though the Nokia manual says it should be.
